I wanted to love Flowerbomb so much but it made me smell like the inside of my grandmother's closet. You know what I mean, that vintage heavy floral rosebush. I ran into this when it was first introduced in Europe. It didn't do what Issy did for me when I first smelled it but after walking around with it on for half an hour it settled into a sexy, warm, femininely fresh scent with a hint of vintage. I'm not much of a perfume user so I use it sparingly going out at night. Lots of complements.
Give it some time to develop on your skin.

In consideration of the fact that I find Flowerbomb to be one of my favorite perfumes [and one of the first I completely fell in love with,] I expected a lot from Eau Mega. But when I tried it, all I got was a screeching watery cucumber note. I don't know where it came from, but on me it is not only disappointing, but repulsive. I don't want to smell like a wilting salad on a hot day, and fork over a hundred bucks to do it, too!

I don't know why there are so many bad reviews....
When I first sniffed this perfume, I feel in love. But I couldn't believe how expensive it was!! I waited for awhile to find a good deal on this perfume and I picked it up at the L'oreal sale we have here in Toronto. It was only $34 for 75ml. I am not crazy about the packaging of the product, but I really do love this scent. I tend to save this one for night time.

Love this for nights on the town. It makes me feel like a DIVA. I got a sample of this for Christmas and I have been in love ever since. The smell is long lasting and a little goes a long way. I am not crazy about the bulky bottle but its not a deal breaker. 1 oz is $75 so I will only be using this on special occasions.

I tested this fragrance in anticipation when I finally saw it at my local Dept Store.
It's certainly fresh & totally different from Flowerbomb. Not too keen on the melon-ish start, however thankfully it's subtle in Eau Mega.
I have to say that unfortunately, to me, Eau Mega wasn't the unique & different fragrance that Flowerbomb is. Eau Mega smells like quite generic. Don't get me wrong, it's a very pretty fragrance - especially the drydown - but it's not unique enough for me.
For this reason I don't think I would buy it, but if someone gave it to me, I would definitely wear it.
PS: Don't like the design of the bottle very much. It's different, yes, but ugly & clunky too.

Received this as a gift. It is a nice light fragrance. Sweet. Smells like cantaloupe to me. Nice for the Summer.

A beautiful light scent..very well done,a nice mix of fruity and floral notes!! I feel in class and quality it is similar to J'adore...but a much lighter and wearable vesion!! J'adore is an instant headache for me!! seems like few people can apprecaite the beauty of that fragrance! a real perfume who smells divine!!!

I chose "yes" i'd buy this again....but I intend to buy it in the future. I've sampled this at Sephora , but i've recently bought a few other scents so this will have to wait! However I am surprised by so many bad reviews. I expected to hate it, instead I find it fun, not overly synthetic (nor extremely special, which is why I gave 4/5 lippies), and a fragrance that can work year round, IMO. After the initial fruity pear, it dries down to a more herbal note. The packaging is "ok", but I'm not loving that you have to squeeze the V&R tab to spritz it on.

I received a pair of Eau Mega samples when I made my last perfume purchase at Nordstrom. Immediately this reminded me of watermelon. The scent is sweet and fresh, fruity with something herbal, but not an earthy kind of herb. I thought of basil originally, but maybe some mint too, the fresh green herb that grows in my summer garden.
But alas, the artificial watermelon fragrance just kills this for me. It smells like a Jolly Rancher or cheap shower gel. No bueno.
Oh, but how neat is the bottle?

Agree with the reviewer that compared this to Issey Miyake (haven't smelled Escape), it has the same sharp nauseating overtones. I remember when the Miyake fragrance came out and I had to hold my breath in so many public places to avoid nausea and headaches. At least this didn't produce such severe physical reactions (that's what the 2 rating is for), it just smelled sharp, generic and bad.

I just got this perfume today and I really like it so far. It is less sweet without the vanilla notes I am used to (I also have Flowerbomb, Herve Leger, and Hanai Mori Eau Butterfly), but it dries to a nice soft and warm scent. Not overpowering, very wearable scent, and it doesn't give me a migrane!

Eau Mega by Victor & Rolf, introduced in the US in Fall '09, was created by Olivier Polge, IFF. The fragrance is marketed as "A sparkling eau for women who are larger than life. A fresh, green, ultra-faceted floral fragrance". The packaging is quite unusual, although a bit clumsy to handle since you have to squeeze the golden nugget-shaped sprayer bulb with one hand while holding the bottle with the other. I uploaded a stock photo above.
Top notes: Basil, Violet leaves, Lemon. Heart note: Jasmin, Peony, Pear, Aquatic Note. Base note: Musk, Cashmeran, Sandalwood, Cedar.
My two cents: For me, Eau Mega is a good example for a fragrance which could be nice, according to the list of notes but in reality does not work out. Although not specifically listed, I detected an overwhelming cucumber note which in itself is not a bad thing. But in combination with the "aquatic note" this ends up being a sharp smelling mess as if Issey Miyake and Calvin Klein's Escape were layered. I just do not find this to be well blended at all. The listed notes in Eau Mega that could have softened the edges like Sandalwood and Cashmeran do not get any chance to shine or even become noticeable. So I am sorry to say that Eau Mega is quite a disappointment for me, I find it almost nauseating.
Pricing is quite steep, similar to Flowerbomb, Victor&Rolf's first fragrance: $100 for 1.7oz/50ml and $140 for 2.5oz/75ml spray bottle.

I love Flowerbomb its my favorite fragrance so im so very disappointed in the new scent Eau Mega! I got this as a sample today while restocking on Flowerbomb and I just sprayed this and im not great at describing notes but I can describe how awful this is...it reminds me of another fragrance but i just cant think of the name, I threw away my spray sample after 2 spritz of this...I just couldn't stand it!
it has a musty smell to it like someone sprayed perfume in a locker room after a football game.
I was hoping I would like this because flowerbomb is the HG of perfume to me.
