Gorgeous flanker. I highly suggest this if you really want to like Flowerbomb but find it can overwhelm. This is much more wearable, especially during the day, at work and for casual affairs. Starts with a bitty dose of rose (definitely not an in-your-face, old lady, bathroom spray rose) that quickly fades away and turns into the original FB, only more subtle and slightly "fresher". …Read more

I honestly don't get the hype. The rose notes are next to non-existent, and to me it seems to open rather fruity, smelling much like cherry-flavored cold medicine. It quickly dries down into the signature Flowerbomb base notes (patchouli, vanilla, amber) and smells just like the EDT of the original.

Yes, spinoffs of a fragrance should resemble the original, but this is just the …

I don't like the original Flowerbomb, but this is very different and I find it an intriguing fragrance. The initial spray is a bit citrusy, the rose is barely detectable, which I like because I hate rose scents. The dry-down is amazing, the amber and patchouli very subtle. It ends up a powdery, creamy, light scent that is perfect for summer and has a good last. I have received several …Read more

La Vie en Rose has a beautiful bottle and box. However I got very little rose. Lovely opening, but alas this fragrance has something like a "hay", "compost", or "animalic musk" note on me as it dries down that didn't work on my chemistry. (Flowerbomb body cream has the same thing.) Also, freesia is an iffy note for me as it tends to go chemical-dusty. …Read more

I don't like the original flowerbomb. But I really enjoy this version for the summer. I don't really get rose notes in it. But I really enjoy this scent. I would purchase it again. Although it smells very similar to my Gucci floral gardenia.

WHAT ROSE??? I smelled no rose, only men's aftershave with too much alcohol. I just couldn't get past the aftershave. And no, I wouldn't like it on my man. He wears Lagerfeld. Much richer and doesn't make my skin burn (ok, not really).

Flowerbomb La Vie En Rose is very similar to the original Flowerbomb, more so than most flankers. It is billed as a lighter, more citrus-y version, but it still packs a punch. The added rose notes smelled slightly chemical to me, and the drydown was more powdery than the original. However, La Vie En Rose retains all the mouthwatering ethyl maltol and vanillic notes that make Flowerbomb such an …Read more

If you really want to wear Flowerbomb in the summer but are afraid it might end up too heavy or cloying, then this is made especially for you. You get the same yummy, heavenly goodness, plus an opening lemon/lime note, minus the intensity of the original. It's actually a more watered down version of the EDP; or, the EDT mixed with some sweet citrus which only lasts for a few seconds in the …Read more

A more citrusy version of the original Flowerbomb. A bit less heavy than the original, so I think I like it a bit better. But like the original, I don't find it all that special or worth the elevated price. Gorgeous bottle, though.

This starts out with a burst of citrus and then you get the orginial flowerbomb background. Unfortnately the citrus fades very quickly and you're left with a very weak flowerbomb scent. Compared to original Flowerbomb this one is very weak and you would have to reapply every 2 hours to keep the scent going. I would not repurchase because of the staying power...but if they we're to …Read more
