In the perfume encyclopedia, next to the entry for "gourmand", should be Flowerbomb. It is a very sweet, suculent, dessertlike scent. Its name is deceptive, since the floral notes are almost imperceptible under the vanilla and chocolate. It smells delicious, yet it is lacking in depth, though by the drydown you get some nice woody notes. However, the most you smell at akl stages is something like burnt marshmallow. When I was 19, I loved this. Now, though I still love vanilla based gourmands, it is a bit to sweet and simple.
Excellent staying power and sillage.
THEY TEST ON ANIMALS.... "LOREAL" ... NO THANKS!
I've been wearing this for many years, but lately I got really tired of the smell. So now we're taking a break..
But this really is a lovely smell of flowers and I've gotten so many compliments while wearing this. Plus the bottle is so pretty!
I think by my ratings you can tell that I LOVE LOVE LOVE this perfume, ever since I was around 9/10 I became really interested in perfume and fragrances and every time I went into a place like Fenwicks I would spray this and I would take loads of samples and place them around my room because as it is a strong fragrance one or two sprays were enough and it lasted ages. Thankfully for my 13th birthday I was bought the perfume because I always sprayed it but with it being £70 I never dared to buy it. Now I have it I am really cautious to use it as I love it so much, so I only use it if I really need to or if its a special occasion. I still have over half left and love the amber floral tones in it because for a floral heavy perfume its really sweet and its not too overpowering. The only slightly negative thing about it is the pump that you spray it with, its made of a strange lacy material and it frays and gets bent and makes it look unattractive but I found a place where i could buy the normal spray cap for a cheap price and now it looks much much better! It's my favourite by far and Im such a fragrance fanatic! thanks xox
This does not work on me, smells of horrible old lady talcum powder, slightly stale and flat. Very disappointing. I use it as a room fragrance if I am stuck.
This smells a lot like sensual amber from bath and body works. I'm not a huge fan of sensual amber though...
The parfum spray is absolutely wonderful! The scent is that of flowers and reminds me of tropical islands. The Patchouli really adds that extra something to the scent. This is perfect for everyday wear or for special events. The scent is so uplifting and fresh I garauntee your friends will want to know what you are wearing so they can purchase some. Don't tell them though...LOL...keep it a secret so only you smell fantastic! Enjoy and feel wonderful with this awesome perfume.
This is by far one of my absolute favorite perfumes. Very beautiful! the first time I sampled this years ago, it stopped me in my tracks and I couldn't get over how amazing this smelled. The lasting power is great, the packaging is great and the bottle is awesome. It's expensive but definitely worth the price. I've repurchased a few more times since then.
I have several samples of this perfume and I don't know why I never bought a whole bottle. The bottle is gorgeous, I love the nude pink colored granade-shape to reflect the name "bomb". The scent is more like Sugarbomb than Flowerbomb. A really sweet, candy-cotton smelling scent which reminds me a bit of Pink Sugar (without the spicy pepper note) or Jessica Simpson Fancy.
Sometime I will buy a full size bottle of this fragrance as I love gourmand scents and this is definitely it!
I don't get the hype. The bottle is beautiful, but it smells sickeningly sweet. I like sweet smelling perfumes, but Flowerbomb smells cheap. I've heard people say that Flowerbomb is "the sex."
Well, I'm here to tell you that NO, it's not. Not for me, at least. If you're a self-respecting woman in your mid 20's who wants to give off an air of class, elegance, grace, and understated sexiness, don't reach for this. This will make you smell like a high school girl who went overboard with Victoria's Secret strawberries and champagne body spray.
I only gave it 2 stars because of the packaging. It's absolutely gorgeous!
