Described as a floral scent with notes of cattleyas, freesia, jasmine and rose, Viktor & Rolf's Flowerbomb is a crowd-pleaser. Several Nordstrom reviewers not only mention how much they love the aroma but also the frequent compliments they receive while wearing it.
One raving reviewer wrote, "I typically lean toward citrusy scents but I was at a Nordy's perfume counter and was admiring how pretty the bottle was. I sprayed some on my wrists, some behind my ear and walked away.....to Petit Focus, to BP, handbags, lingerie and shoes. I kept sniffing my wrists and was falling in love with the fragrance. Then a complete stranger complimented me on my perfume and asked what it was. I confessed that it was a sample spray from the perfume counter. She said I should get it and I agreed!! I love it and wear it everyday."
