Viktor and Rolf Bonbon

Viktor and Rolf Bon Bon perfume

If I'm honest, it had me at the bow-shaped bottle. As a long-time lover of Flowerbomb, the sexyfloral showstopper of a perfume that always gets compliments, I was already excited at the prospect of another perfume from Viktor and Rolf. So when I saw the gleaming beauty that is Bonbon, I was instantly in love. Luckily for me, my boyfriend pays attention so on my birthday, way back in May, I was thrilled find this waiting for me. 

It's a brave move, buying someone a perfume that they have never actually smelt, but fortunately the perfume lives up to its packaging and predecessor. If you loved the intensity of Flowerbomb, you'll appreciate Bonbon's full-force sweetness. Viktor and Rolf clearly don't do things by halves, and if you want something very subtle this isn't for you. This is a caramel explosion, warm and sweet to the extreme, but also somehow more grown-up and sexy than the girly bottle and name might suggest. It's hard to describe fragrances, but I'd say it's more like a creamy caramel dessert than the bon-bon sweeties it's named after. It isn't however, a sugar-overload, and jasmine and peachy notes break things up a little, along with other fruity treats like blackcurrant and tangerine. Sickly scents can give me a headache, but this doesn't.

Bonbon has totally won me over. It's as lovely on me as it looks on my dressing table, and it's as addictive as it's predecessor. Are you a Viktor and Rolf fan?
