Last Minute Christmas Gift Idea #4 - Viktor + Rolf Flowerbomb Giftset


A few months ago my cousin gave me this gorgeous Viktor + Rolf gift set and it's easily the prettiest perfume set I've ever received, so I thought it would be ideal to feature in my Last Minute Christmas Gift Guide.  

I normally chuck away all packaging to save space but the box is actually a sturdy plastic rather than cardboard and I have it sitting on top of my bookcase as it's just too pretty to part with.

It opens out into a beautiful set with a 50ml perfume and mini shower gel and body lotion.  Flowerbomb itself is a beautiful scent.  I can't believe it's actually been around since 2004 as I still think of it as a modern perfume.  There have been a few imitations (Jimmy Choo, anyone?) but it remains the ultimate feminine power perfume.

It's a sweet, spicy, musky oriental scent - definitely a night time aroma, but I wear it whenever.  It's the ultimate transition perfume of that difficult late 20s to mid 30s age where you don't want to smell like a sugary teenager, but you're still to young to be reaching for the Chanel No. 5.

The top notes are Bergamot and tea, middle notes are Jasmine, Freesia, Orchid and the base notes are Centriflora Rose and Patchouli.

You can find this set or ones similar here, here and here from about £50 - £75.

    1. My Marc Jacobs Daisy is on it's last legs too, I've really gone off it these days, but I think Flowerbomb will be a much longer affair!

  4. Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb is really a gorgeous gift for Christmas.Since I was 14 I wore just Chance by Chanel.In the wake of attempting this perfume I couldn't avoid purchasing it.It is sweeter than the perfumes I ordinarily like however it is truly girly and I get a great deal of compliments on it.Happy I took a stab at something new,I've effectively repurchased it.It somewhat pricey yet I have a feeling that it is worth it.Thank you.~Sarah Clark.
