Hey guys back with another offering of something for Christmas, last week I wrote about a perfume I love and this week I'm writing about another fragrance, as I mentioned I'm not doing a gift guide as such as I'm feeling people are sick of those but each week il write about one thing that I'm going to review and you can make up your own mind.
Now a few years ago when I worked on the Chanel counter in Boots I used to come into work perfume free because my aim was to try a different perfume each shift to see if I liked them and obviously to smell different every day. When I covered fragrance I used to tidy up all the shelves and clean all the glass displays and just love the fancy bottles thinking my god this is heaven, not the cleaning but messing with all the pretty bottles and one that people that raved about was flowerbomb, I knew this wasn't a cheap one and your talking £73 for a 50ml which I suppose isint horrendous but it's not one of the cheaper ones. That's from Boots
So what is Flowerbomb all about??? Flowerbomb is an explosion of scents rolled into one with
TOP NOTES of Bergamot, Tea
HEART NOTES of Jasmine, Freesia, Orchid
BASE NOTES of Centiflora Rose, Patchouli
This is not one for the faint hearted if you don't like floral scents don't even pick it up, however if your a fan of a sophisticated mix of the florals then this may be for you. I did worry it would remind me of something my nan would have worn in a nice way but it didn't do that either,
My initial impression was OMG it was quite heady and I thought if I smell of this all day this is not good, I thought breathe it will dry down and when it did I was sold. The mix of florals secrets with the woody notes of the Patchouli is what I love and the smell is completely beautiful.
The bottle is pretty not overtly fancy but nice, little details which are classy and look stunning on your dressing table, to me it's too nice to be thrown around in your hand bag, but I don't think you really need to carry it around I found that the scent lasts all day, I actually think when my current bottle runs out I will cry. Is it a great buy for Christmas I actually think that it is and the receiver of this will be a very lucky person,
