I love this Flowerbomb! When I heard the name, I thought it would be overwhelming! Surprise, it's a deep but subtle musky vanilla with a little extra zing of something on me. It lasts long, wears close to my skin. It's a sexy woman-child of a scent! Instead of saying "that smells good" like I get with some of my fragrances, I get "you smell good". Yum!
Don't understand what all the hype is about. It has a very generic sweet, foody scent like so many other fragrances already available. I still don't understand the appeal of smelling like cake & cookies. continued >>
A nice, generic vanilla with sandalwood in the dry down. Not really sure where the flowers are or what is explosive about this. Cool bottle. Still, for the price and hype, it's really not that special. It's very pretty and I like it, but there's more dusty wood in the dry down than I like. Strangely unspectacular for something so argued.
I was pleasantly surprised by FLOWERBOMB. I’d avoided testing it since it’s release as I assumed it would be floral heavy; in other words ‘overpowering’ & migraine producing.
FLOWERBOMB is actually quite sweet. But it’s the kind of sweetness I adore; it’s not a syrupy mess that turns sickly on me, it’s a more subtle, sexy, ‘come closer’ rose & amber mix. The tea in the top notes is refreshing & adds energy to the fragrance.
I adore the stylish bottle; very unique. The lasting power is excellent, 2 sprays last all day on me. The only thing about FLOWERBOMB I don’t like is the price, for me it’s worth it, but it’ll put some people off.
Scent notes: Tea, bergamot, jasmine, orange tree, orchid, freesia, rose, amber, musk, and patchouli.
"Caramel bomb". No flowers. Boring, sticky, caramel stuff.
WOW i honestly think the cost is worth it. I feel like a million dollars when i wear this perfume. Also its a parfum not an eau de toilette which means that it is much stronger & potent and i swear all you need is one spray in the morning and one spray in the evening and you will smell fabulous all day! It really lasts so the splurge is worth it. And the best part OMG does it drive the guys crazy i swear i get so many compliments from guys it has a very sexy smell to me and i always wear it when im going out . It is my very favorite and i swear you will feel so hot wearing this parfum. totally worth it continued >>
Flowerbomb is certainly misnamed - I can't detect a single floral note in it! It is just an overwhelmingly sweet fruity-candy blend - like walking into one of those old-fashioned sweet shops where they have different boiled sweets and candy lined up in jars. When I sprayed it on I could smell a little tea, but then it turned into the candyfloss I used to eat at the fair as a child, with a strong overlay of strawberry - not my style at all. I'm normally very sensitive to patchouli, but can't smell any at all in this, or any amber or any other notes! Not quite a scrubber but still far too sweet-frilly-frou-frou for me!
No bomb here, and it's not discernibly floral either, to my nose, despite the notes (Top-Tea, Bergamot; Middle-Sambac Jasmine, Cattleya Orchid, Freesia, Centifolia Rose; Base-Musks, Patchouli). Well…maybe I do smell a bit of the sambac jasmine in there. And as another reviewer mentions, it has a powdery and tender quality. That's a good way of putting it. I have to admit it- as much as I had in my mind that this is a rather “meh” scent compared to others like it (Angel, Lolita Lempicka), on its own merit it’s really very pleasant, a candy pastille-like fragrance that seems very nicely composed. The patchouli is soft and tame. It’s not the crazy monster/masterpiece that Angel is, and it doesn’t have that fairy tale magic forest quality that I love about Lolita Lempicka, but it’s in the same family. I like it. I prefer the others, but this one is quite nice.
Well, when i tried the perfume i thought it had a great smell, i got so many compliments and the smell stayed all day long.. for me it's a very luxurious perfume and worth its price.. i would definitly buy it again
What is all the hype about? I tried giving this a second chance, but all I got was patchouli stink and a hint of vanilla. Blech, just didn't work for me. And waaaaay overpriced. Try it if you dare, but don't expect to be impressed.
