In bloom with Viktor & Rolf


With the Spring equinox being just the other day and the evenings growing longer and brighter I figured it was about time I purchased a new fragrance for the upcoming warmer months. I'm still yet to find my 'signature' perfume so I do tend to try a lot of different ones but generally stick to the same recipe of fresh, floral and occasionally even fruity scents. 

The latest Viktor & Rolf offering- Flowerbomb Bloom is a little different to my usual choices. Whilst it still is very much a floral dominated fragrance and has fruity top notes of pomegranate accord, bergamot and mandarin oils it's the base notes of musk, vanilla and patchouli that set it apart from previous perfumes. Bloom is incredibly feminine and sweet and despite the musk, quite a delicate perfume, it isn't at all heavy which I think is perfect for this season.

Whilst the original Flowerbomb is a real icon I've found that I much prefer Bloom due to it's fresher nature, it's not quite as heady or sickly sweet as it's parent perfume and although I'm not sure I've found 'the one' in this fragrance it will still be a real pleasure to wear this Spring.
