I bought this bc I had to have the bottle. It’s so so pretty!! The perfume itself is not that bad but it’s not unique or anything... it smells like sephora;/ It’s very sweet but more gentle than flowerbomb (can’t stand that one)

This smells divine. It reminds me so much the Baby Doll fragrance from YSL. BUT I would not buy it again because it does not last on me and the spritzer sprays A TON of the fragrance. That means that the bottle will not not last a fair amount of time, even with every day use.

I had high hopes due to the high ratings online. It smells very similar to the gummy bear type celebrity scents out there. I believe this is a dupe of one of the long discontined Mariah Carey Lollipop Bling scents.

Smells just like the billions of cheap celebrity fruity floral perfumes out there, maybe a tiny bit more nuanced and sophisticated. It's not offensive or anything, but it definitely isn't my cup of tea. Even in my mid-20s, I feel like this is already too "candyish" and juvenile for me to wear. And if you do enjoy this type of scent, you definitely don't have to pay designer brand prices for that. It's pretty much down to paying for the cute pink bow-shaped bottle, really.

I love how many different citrus notes this perfume contains, yet it is at not at all overpowering (after the initial spray of course!) The gourmand caramel is beautiful with the citrus, and refreshingly original. Not plain or boring. If i go into a chemist sometimes when I come out i won't be able to tell one scent from like, five different ones. This is one that's definitely one you wear to be recognised! Can tell instantly what scent it is! It's a beautiful classy caramel scent with amazing citrus notes. Also love that it contains the scents peach, wood, amber and jasmine as well! Different, but a georgeous touch nevertheless. And the bottle... i could buy it just for the bottle, how adorably feminine is that?

I LOVE this scent, but then again, I love ALL sweet, gourmand scents! If you love this, but can't see paying the hefty price (trust me, I couldn't either for the longest time! I ended up buying several of the samples!) buy Britney Spears In Control Curious perfume. Its not identical, but it is close enough that it'll satisfy your Bonbon sweet tooth! Trust me on this! When I first sprayed this on my wrist, I loved it, and after it dried down, I loved it even more, and couldn't stop smelling it. But, it smelled SO familiar. Then it hit me! In Control Curious by Britney Spears! I have that one, too, and I sprayed it on the other wrist, and like I said, they aren't identical, but they are pretty damn close. This is so delectable, very heavy on the caramel and peach, nice dose of vanilla, some boozy scent in there too makes it smell so heady to me...ah...I just love it! I think it smells like sex in a bottle, and I certainly feel sexy when I wear it. My husband loves it too!

Bonbon is one of my favorite Saturday (or any day off) scents, and I'll probably wear it tomorrow. I enjoy its rich sweetness when I'm shopping, and I've gotten compliments in grocery stores. It smells happy and matches my mood on weekends, holidays, & vacations -- and when going places. I don't know why, but I like Bonbon much more than V&R Flowerbomb or La Vie Est Belle -- I think it's because Bonbon smells richer and fuller.

An EDP that launched in 2014, here are Viktor & Rolf Bonbon's notes, per parfumo.net:

Top Notes -- Mandarin, Orange, Peach
Heart Notes -- Jasmine, Caramel, Orange blossom
Base Notes -- Amber, Gaiac wood, Sandalwood, Cedar

It's a sweet oriental but not *too* sweet, since it has 3 different wood notes + amber in the base. It's rich, caramelly, full-bodied -- not overwhelmingly strong but does last well. It's one of my favorite gourmand/orientals. However, I do find the shape of the bottle awkward to hold and spray -- and it's my only problem with this fragrance.

Other reviewers have talked about its high price, but I didn't pay retail. Bonbon launched in 2014, but I just got mine a few months ago. I waited until it came to etailers & ordered it online at a big discount -- I do this all the time. If a fragrance is brand new and only sold in stores, I'll maybe get just a sample, mini, or rollerball. Then if I want a full bottle later, I'll order at a steep discount from an online etailer. That's what I did with Bonbon -- and many many many others. (like waiting for movies to come to Redbox, which I do also.)

I'm so happy I finally added this to my perfumes!! OMG I LOVE IT!!!!

Its sweet & strong right after the 1st initial sprays but the dry down is heaven!!!

On me its a very caramel/vanilla/peach with hints of amber on me. The sillage & longevity of this on me is amazing!!!

This is another perfume that I get complimented on when I wear it.

Not worth the price tag - smells nice when you first spray it and then dries down exactly like the D&G Pour Femme (pink one). BonBon is marketed as a fruity floral gourmand but it’s really an oriental vanilla – quite heavy for daytime. I was expecting more caramel and candy and this just smells like a spicy powdery/heavy vanilla. I don’t smell any fruits or florals in this at all. I couldn’t imagine paying $165 for this! I bought a tester off eBay and I’m so glad I tried it out before purchasing the real deal. It smells very mature – if you’re looking for a youthful, vanilla, candy type scent – this isn’t it.

I am a perfume addict!
This perfume is very expensive, but saying that I love it.
If you like sweet warm vanilla scents , you will love it!
It does last a reasonable amount of time.
Packaging is beautiful.
Definitely worth a buy !
