Scent #4: Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf


{Dusk on a frozen January day}

Some days, you want new and different. Some days, you want familiar and comforting. Today, because the high was 12 degrees and a winter storm is brewing, I gravitated toward comfort: J. Crew jeans, grizzly bear brown Patagonia fleece and Flowerbomb perfume.

I wish the name — Flowerbomb — was as elegant as the scent. It sounds like someone who puts on way too much. Here’s the official description: “This floral explosion releases a profusion of flowers that has the power to make everything seem more positive.”

To me, Flowerbomb smells like a lush rose & peony garden at nighttime. I’ll confess: if I’m wearing a turtleneck, I like to duck into it (when I’m alone) just to breathe it in. While my co-workers are outside having a smoke, I’m at my desk smelling myself.
