Although it may be slightly overcast outside and the sun is playing tricks with us and hiding behind the clouds, today I am sharing with you my new Summer fragrance love. A long time devotee of the Viktor & Rolf scents I may have gone through more bottles of Flowerbomb that I would like to admit ;) it’s no surprise that my fragrance of choice comes from this powerhouse again. There is something about their delectable mixture of notes that creates a strong perfume that lasts on the skin whilst smelling unique in comparison to the array of fragrances you can find in beauty halls now a days. Their new feminine release BONBON lives up to their high standards. Not only does it smell a dream, can we just take a moment to talk about the gorgeous bottle!

Yes, I am a sucker for packaging. Love the stuff and I may have a bag stored away in my room where I keep all the beautiful boxes that once housed my favourite makeup pieces. Problems? Moi? As soon as I spied this bottle in Duty Free I knew it was going to be a match made in heaven. A glass bow (or a sweet in a wrapper?!) that is presented in a deep purple/pink hue, can you say perfection? Viktor & Rolf win again and that’s before I’ve even given it a sniff. The fragrance itself contains caramel notes which gives this a sweet smokey scent. Combined with mandarin, orange and jasmine the standard floral perfumes are given a new lease of life. Worn during the day or even in the evening, this fragrance smells divine and I just hope I don’t whizz through the bottle too quickly!
