Have you chosen your “wedding perfume” yet? The scent that will forever teleport you back to your magical Big Day? Like with most things wedding-related, I think it is a good idea to go for something classic that won’t date and that you won’t grow to hate.
Viktor and Rolf’s Flowerbomb is currently celebrating its tenth birthday and I think it is the perfect opportunity for me to tell you about it so that you can consider it as your signature scent for your Big Day. Flowerbomb was released as part of Dutch designers Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren’s Fall Winter fashion show in 2005. Fascinated by flowers, they researched the idea of a flower bomb – an explosion of petals with an exceptionally fragrant trail and volume. They wanted a thousand flowers in just one bottle.
The scent is sparkling with the top notes comprising of tea and bergamot, and generous as the fragrance breaks into the middle notes of sambac jasmine, orange tree, Catleya orchid, freesia and Centifolia rose. This rich textured bouquet gives the perfume its oriental, fruity and floral warmth. Finally, it is structured, with a base of patchouli providing a woodiness.
Despite a name like Flower Bomb, I can assure you that this is no overpowering attack on the senses. This is delicate, light, feminine and long lasting – surely all of the aspects you should be looking for in your wedding day perfume.
