Viktor and Rolf: Flowerbomb

Has anyone tried the flowerbomb from Viktor and Rolf? Smells pretty nice if you like that floral scent mixed in with a little jasmine and cinnamon. Smells very girly.

I absolutely adore this scent, it's the only woman's scent I ever bought, so much better than Antidote. I don't know why it exerts such a fascination over me, but it does and I wear.

At work, one of my male co-workers came to my desk and said "Someone here has a very sexy perfume." and I answered "Sorry, to burst your bubble, it's me." (remember, I'm a guy) and he doubted it, however, when I got closer to him, he turned and said "Yeah, it is you... kind of takes the mystique away." and shrugged and said "Sorry..."

It's the reverse for me, Flowerbomb is nice but I plan to get Antidote even though I'm a girl

i loooooooove it
bought it with my staff discount so it was £30 ($60) instead of £40 ($80) and got a goody bag with a lush fan and enough 'samples' to make up another bottle lol
its way overpriced but lovely
loads of new perfumes ive smelled recently are really musky and yucky

edit- heh just realised i already posted here!

OMG I went to Sephora during the week and asked for a sample of Flowerbomb. The lady asked me if I wanted to try it and I said "well ok"...
Believe me that was a try: she sprayed it on me 4 times one after the other (ok I must have whisked my arm away before!) and as soon as I got into my car I felt sick, all the way home... it put me right off trying it, definitely... eeeek :\

This scent has really grown on me, I have a sample and I still really like it. The price is a bit irksome though. Very expensive, I think I'd rather get Coco Mlle. instead.

Yeah, that is WAY too much. I think any perfume could smell like bugspray/toxic fumes when you spray that much on. I'd give it another try, but don't let the salesperson attack you with it. =]

I don't think I could drop almost $100 on a bottle of this, but it's a phenomenal scent. I've compromised and bought one of those miniature bottles. It's rare that I can tolerate even a hint of patchouli.

I bought Antidote for my boyfriend and he wears it all the time. I get the best of both worlds!

This one did nothing for me. The patchouli annoyed me, as it always does and it's very expensive for a commercial scent.

However, it's a nicely done fragrance and not as sweet as many of the other new releases.

I tried this again and it's def a nice scent. I actually like the Eau de Toilette better than the Eau de Parfum, it's a bit fresher, the perfume is sweeter. I just can't fathom why on earth it's sooo expensive! It's not that exclusive. I'm thinking the price will come down once this perfume has been on the market for a while...

I've actually read on MUA that Flowerbomb has a sister scent in Bath and Body Works' Sensual Amber EDT. I own that one, and is is very, *very* similar to Flowerbomb. I would check it out, esp. if you love Flowerbomb's dry down.

These are it's notes.
Fragrance Top Notes: Bergamot, Wild Berries, Succulent Plum
Fragrance Mid Notes: White Rose NP, Orange Flower NP, Lotus Petals, Iris NP
Fragrance Base Notes: Amber, Creamy Sandalwood, Vanilla, Patchouli, Praline, Musk Captive
