Question
Is this too strong for summer?
I've been wanting to try this, but for the price I don't want to buy it right as it's starting to get hot if it's a heavy perfume. Thanks :)

I bought Flowerbomb for one of my precious Aunts, and she told me that she kept small containers around that were suitable for mixing her favorite perfumes with unscented body lotion - she used Keri. In that way she could make it the strength that she liked.

answer 9
Many women seem to really like this as a summer fragrance, but I think it's only suitable for summer evenings. The rose, jasmine and patchouli stick out the most to me, and I described this as a "dusky" fragrance in my review. I think it's best reserved for summer evenings. It would be too "serious" for a 4th of July lunch barbecue, or for wearing to a theme park or the beach.

That said, as comparable alternative I recommend Yves Saint Laurent's Parisienne, which to me smells like Flowerbomb plus blackberries and violets. Parisienne is suitable for day use in summer because it's a brighter version of Flowerbomb. Try it out in store, I hope you like it. Good luck!

I don't think so, but it probably depends on what the climate is like where you live. I live in Hawaii, and I've been wearing it for the past few weeks and it's been fine. However, in the summer it might seem stronger than in the cooler months. It depends on how it reacts with your skin too. But overall I think it should be ok.

I found the body lotion to be as true a scent as the spray and great staying power. When used with the spray, the lotion really adds life to the scent but was strong enough to stand alone. The lotion is also a really nice moisturizer too...not overly sticky like some scented lotions.

They are not even close! HOWEVER, I LOVE Pink Sugar and I LOVE this! This one is definitely not as sweet as pink sugar but there is a fantastic gourmand note to it. I would say perhaps this would be the more mature Pink Sugar wearer's perfume. I love Pink Sugar but everyone keeps saying I am too old for it (I'm only 26!) so I thought I would go for something more sophisticated, and I can't get enough! It's the BEST "going out" perfume when you are hitting the town!

answer 5
Frangrances from a rollerball tend to not last as long as the spray and here's why; rollerballs break the fragrance beads as it rolls across the skin, releasing all the fragrance at one time. When you spray a fragrance on yourself, or in the air and walk into it, the beads remain intact and the scent will last longer.

I feel the spray lasts but while being convinced to buy the entire collection, the saleswoman also applied the very expensive body butter and then sprayed me. The both combined keeps the scent longer. However, I have found while we may not be able to smell it on ourselves, others still can.

Yes, rollerball formula is slightly different, and slightly less strong than spray form because of the way you distribute the product.

I have the Viktor and Rolf spray and it tends to last 3-4 hours for me.

Question
Has anyone's Flower Bomb Changed Color?
Hi everyone. I have had my Flowerbomb for several years (maybe 4 or 5 at the most) and it still smells fine (as far as I can tell) but it has really darkened in color. It's not light pink anymore, but more like a light brown with a hint of pink. I don't store it near the light. I know perfume doesn't last FOREVER, but I think it's supposed to last many years, right? Has anyone had this happen or know how long you should/can keep perfume? TIA :)

Are you storing your perfume in direct sunlight? Sometimes sunlight can cause the ingredients in perfume to undergo chemical changes. Keep it in a cool place out of the sun, if you can.

I've often wondered myself how long an opened bottle of perfume will keep. I looked up the answer on a few different sites and they pretty much all said 3 - 5 years, and the 1st indication that a perfume has "turned" is a change in the color. However, a few sites also mentioned that as long as the fragrance doesn't smell "bad", there's not harm in continuing to use it. I also came across a good hint for getting "rid" of perfume that looks like it's run out of shelf life...the article suggested mixing the perfume in with your favorite lotion, adding some to your perfume or conditioner, or spraying some directly onto the wet towels in your dryer before you dry them. (You wouldn't want to spray any on wet clothing that could be ruined by the oils in the fragrance).

Are you insane? Perfume is extremely volatile. The better, the less likely to last. It separates and deteriorates until it's mostly a chemical compound -- the residue of the main scent being gone. That 5-yr.old bottle is Something, but it's no longer Flowerbomb. The breakdown attributes to the discoloration and acrid effect. I have a bottle of Lauren from 1987 that I love to look at but the smell is "ew".

My husband purchased a bottle at one of those carts/kiosks in the local mall. It cost less yet it smelled fine. Within 6 months it turned that funky pink/brown you mentioned.

To my understanding, there isn't an eau de toilette of Flowerbomb, it's all eau de parfum. In any case, the EdP is always a stronger, more concentrated scent in comparison to the EdT. In most cases, the EdT is water based whereas the EdP is alcohol based.

I think this scent is very age neutral as it has the sweetness and floral notes but also some lovely depth to it. I love it for winter because of the vanilla base notes, which add warmth and richness to it, but it could be worn all year because the light floral notes would be nice for spring/summer! Keep in mind, I prefer rich, warm scents all year long, so it might be too heavy for some people in the summer
