Review: Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Fairytale Perfume

Last week, I was fortunate enough to win a bottle of Viktor & Rolf’s Flowerbomb Fairytale perfume from high end department store Selfridges in a competition I entered.  So, I thought I would review the perfume on this blog!

Packaging & Bottle:

The perfume came in a lovely big gift box, which made it feel like I was unwrapping a present.  The iridescent box was printed with a “ribbon” effect and a seal stamped with the Viktor & Rolf logo.  I really liked this feature!

The perfume itself comes in the typical Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb “grenade” bottle.  The Fairytale bottle is a clear bottle with handwriting on the side.  The writing is the Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Fairytale story, which you can read on Selfridges’ site here.

Scent:

The perfume itself is gorgeous.  You only need a little spray, it’s very sweet and floral (as you’d expect with the name). I like to spray two mists into the air and walk in to the scent to apply it. I’ve found applying sprays directly on to wrists/neck etc is just a little too strong!

The scent actually reminds me of Lee Stafford’s Poker Straight heat protection & straightening spray, if you’ve ever used that?  It has the same candy sweet ‘tone’ to it.

I can’t provide you with a virtual scratch and sniff, so here’s an explanation about the perfume’s scent from Selfridges -

“The fragrance, full-bodied and opulent, explodes into a bouquet of sensations with its addictive floral notes which leave their trail, like a whirlwind that is distinctly couture. The first harmonious notes are those derived from tea and bergamot, while the profusion of flowers breaks out into a smooth, voluptuous chorus, rythmed by the mixed harmonies of Sambac jasmine with a hint of orange tree, Catleya orchid, freesia and Centifolia rose – rich, intense. Patchouli provides a woody base note giving the fragrance its olfactory thread, like the lines traced out on a dress pattern.”

Selfridges’ note about the “floral notes which leave their trail, like a whirlwind” is totally spot on too! Again – another reason why you only need a light misting of the perfume.

All in all, I’m really pleased with the prize, and I’ll certainly buy the Viktor & Rolf scent again when the bottle runs out – a testament to how much I like it!
