Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb La Vie En Rose
I love the original Flowerbomb fragrance. It's deep and warm and appeals to me even though I generally dislike florals and prefer more gourmand scent. I don't wear Flowerbomb during the day as I find it on the strong side, but love it in the evenings and for going out. When I saw the gorgeous bottle for the new Flowerbomb La Vie En Rose, I had to try it! On first spritz this smells like the original with a hint of rose and some citrus. Delicious, but what would the drydown be like? Well, it's very much like the original on me only slightly "brighter"! That's not a bad thing since I adore the original, I'm not sure that I can justify the extra $80 right now given the similarity. Citrus tends to fade almost instantly on me so this may work differently on other chemistry. Nonetheless, it's a yummy fragrance in a stunning bottle and eminently worthy of a sample!
