One of my favorite scents to come out in 2009 has to be VIKTOR & ROLF’s Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum. I bought a bottle after smelling a swatch of it in a magazine and then forgot I had it until earlier this month. Has that ever happened to you? Anyway, I know that a scent can smell different in a magazine then in the bottle but this one translated really well and wow, is all I can say about this one. It has top notes of tea and bergamot, middle notes of Sambac jasmine, orchid, freesia, rose and base notes of patchouli. I really recommend you make a note (no pun intended) of this one to at least give it a whiff next time you are in a department store. It’s simply stunning! Floral but adult floral.
And give a scent release a little bit and the accoutrements that come out are usually really good like this one comes in the Flowerbomb Purse Spray ($110 only @ nordstrom.com), which comes with 3 refills. Big recommendation.
