Heavy and suffocating
by Denette on Feb 17, 2017
Flowerbomb is so heavy it's almost suffocating, and I don't care for it at all. It smells exactly like La Vie Est Belle by Lancome even though the notes are nothing alike.
Is something burning??
by anna on Feb 17, 2017
I put this on and smelled like burnt sugar for the rest of the day. My boyfriend asked me if something was burning. I just showed him the bottle with a pout on my face. Not for me at all.
Soft Sweet Baby Powder
by Mary Carole on Feb 15, 2017
So I wasn't sure what to expect from this one. I had read so many different reviews over the years but had never actual tried it until now. On me it comes off as a soft sweet baby powder mixture. It's not a candy sweet on me as some have mentioned. Pheromones are a funny thing. In the end, I'm sure this smells lovely on others but it's just not for me as I am not a fan of baby powder scents.

Although it's sweeter than I like, it's not a bad fragrance. However, I would not say that flowers are the most prominent aspect -- that title definitely belongs to the gourmand notes, as they are certainly front and center. It has been stated that this might accurately be called "Sugarbomb," and I'm inclined to agree. But not a bad fragrance as gourmands go.

This is literally a sweet flower bomb, but not overpowering. It is soft, delicate and feminine. Well-blended, well-done perfume. I only wish it lasted longer!
Not my type
by Jaclyn on Dec 8, 2016
Too intense and not soft enough.
I expected better
by Jaclyn on Dec 7, 2016
I just don't know what the fuss is about, nothing special
Fell in love
by Corrine on Sep 25, 2016
You might want to go lightly with this one it's a bit strong but such classy and gorgeous scent. I can't believe there's negative reviews I make myself melt when I get a whif of myself :)
Warm and Floral
by Ashley on Jul 18, 2016
This is not nearly as sweet as I feared it might be. Instead it's a classy, floral scent. It's like a decadent garden. Totally in love with this romantic perfume.
by Amber on Jul 12, 2016
I love the orange blossom in this super sweet perfume. I don't find it over sweet which is a common complaint. Its definitely worth every penny though!
Good if you like patchouli...
by Cindy on Jun 10, 2016
A lot of people think that it's the sweetness of this perfume that makes them nauseous, but it is likely the sugariness mixed with the patchouli. This is definitely a nice perfume for those who smell you, but not a good perfume for yourself. I mean that the others probably won't smell the strong patchouli, but you will, and it could give you a headache if you're not used to it. If you're searching for compliments, this will get you compliments. It smells sparkly from the fantasy orchid note. It is sweet and the patchouli sometimes doesn't show up until some time passes. It punches you in the face.
At least the green tea is nice
by Jessica on Jun 9, 2016
The green tea top note is a nice surprise. From there, this fragrance goes downhill. This is another fragrance that has that awful unfortunate combination of strong sillage and longevity with overly cloying sweetness. This scent is strong and it gives me a headache. When I wear it I can't get away from it and feel like no one else can either because the scent wake is so offensive and obtrusive. Then, just when it can't get any worse they throw some patchouli at it. Not a fan of this one.
by Tatyana on Jun 7, 2016
It's so heavy and sweet that I'm uncomfortable wearing it within minutes.
by Amy on Jun 6, 2016
I'm almost certain I want to wear this for my wedding in August. It is gorgeous, romantic, and feminine. Unfortunately, it doesn't last very long, so I would have to reapply at the reception.
Light, wearable, a summertime favorite - not floral!
by Bronwyn on May 23, 2016
Despite the name, this is not a floral scent, it is easy and light on the nose and you will have to apply liberally to make scent last. My husband liked it (not a lover of florals). I think it is a feminine scent and could also become a classic, associated with the specific wearer. Too light for me but its a beautiful scent I would keep for summertime outdoors.
I fell in love
by Alishia on Apr 18, 2016
This is one of my new favorites. The name fits perfect. This is the best floral I've smelled in a long time. It lasts a long time and I've never gotten that many compliments
Lives up to name...
by ASHLEY on Dec 17, 2015
This fragrance lives up to its name beautifully....Flowers come together in a wonderfully feminine scent...Do try!
by Michelle on Oct 8, 2015
This is an explosion of floral scents that always seem to bright up everything with its sweet and fresh notes. Its top notes evoke freshness featuring green tea and bergamot which also add a hint of sweetness. The heart of the fragrance floral and opulent comprising of scents from Centifolia rose, Sambac jasmine and Cattleya orchid. The base of the fragrance features patchouli and musk that give it an oriental scent. This scent will make any man swoon over you. Great for a romantic night out with that special someone.
Indoles Indoles Indoles
by Niki on Jul 6, 2015
This is very indolic as one may gather from the listed notes. It's pretty good if you're into that kind of thing. The fragrance is darn sweet too. Not for a heavy hand. I got a little overzealous & ended up nauseous & with a headache. Twas may fault though. I can definitely appreciate this scent for it's composition. You really can smell the green tea in the top notes, which I find striking. In fact, I can decipher most of the listed notes, except maybe freesia & musk. (I love scents that I can do this with, btw). As soon as the drydown happens however, it's sticky sweet and indoles all the way... At least on my skin. Reminds me of a toddler boy, all dirty after playing, and with sticky half-dried lollipop all over his face.
I LOVE This smell as a man
by Aaron on Jun 22, 2015
When I first smelled this I was blown away. Extremely feminine. Whenever I smell this on a woman I go nuts completely. Very rosy candy'ish. Smells amazing. Woman where this more often please haha.
Grew on me
by Nazia on Feb 17, 2015
I wanted to hate this because so many people love it, but after trying it out for a few days, I really do like it - The tea note at the beginning is very refreshing and calming, and I like the sweet candied flowers. I don't think of this as a particularly sexy scent, more like a cozy cuddly one.
by PerfumeLover on Nov 11, 2014
Yuck. I usually like floral perfumes. This is just gross. It made me feel a little nauseous.
by Adrienne on Jun 5, 2014
This one lasts but I am not a fan.
by christy on May 9, 2014
I didnt like at first cuz its very strong but after awhile it smells pretty good
a.k.a. My Sweet Flowerbomb!
by Heather on Mar 20, 2014
I love Flowerbomb! And one reason I do is because my man comments nicely on it, and he hardly ever does that, folks! Let me tell you, this stuff is sophisticated, elegant, classy, and straight-forward! It's for the woman who is organized, fancy, gorgeous, attractive, sexy, corporate, symphonyist, intelligent, strong, decisive, and the true parfumnista!
This fragrance is very popular, probably because of the patchouli ... absolutely amazing here! The fragrance is sweet, floral but not fruity, which is great! And the sweetness is a tame sweet - not in your face loaded-up Sundae. There is a sort of smokiness or spices that prevents it from being overly girly - it's great for every age, it seems! It just lasts forever too! All you need is one spray and you're good for the entire day.
Every time I try to figure out what scent I'm going to wear for the day, I'm drawn to Flowerbomb! I simply can't resist it! The sillage is moderate and the longevity is something like 10 hours.
BTW, guys love that fragrance on us women!
Candy jar sweetness with a 'been there, done that' feel
by Li on Mar 4, 2014
Nope. As much as it's not offensive in any way, it has that sweet, warm candy scent that has been done before, and done better. It reminds me of some of the drugstore imitations of 'if you like X Brand, try our version.' The patchouli was the note that saved this fragrance from a 2-star rating.
by Jeney on Jan 10, 2014
I've tried very hard to like this fragrance. Surely all the reviews can't be wrong! A friend on mine wears it, and I didn't like it when she got it. Thought maybe it was just how it reacted with her skin. So I got a sample and really hated how it smelled from the vial. Thought maybe I would like it on. Hated it. Thought, "Maybe after awhile of wearing it, it will turn into something I love", but I hated it as much (more!) by the end of the day, as I did when it was first applied.
Nail in the coffin: Took a bunch of young adult aged girls to lunch. The girl who got into the front seat of my car said, "Wow, smells like old ladies in here."
by Nicole on Jan 3, 2014
I finally got my hands on this much talked about perfume. It definitely smells more like flowers more than candy, making it more sophisticated but still very feminine. I don't know if perfumes just don't last long on me or what, I may just get used to the smell and stop smelling it after a while. This didn't seem to last on me all day. I'm not sure it's worth the high price for me.
by Alex on Nov 18, 2013
This is my favorite perfume, I often keep an eye out for new perfumes that might top this- but I always come back. It's soft and sexy, and manages to be neither too floral or too much vanilla. I always, always get compliments from men on this perfume.
by Ricky on Nov 4, 2013
Bought this for my girlfriend, smells so good! Love it!
Love it on my friend
by Frida on May 8, 2013
My friend have this and I love it on her. On me it´s still nice but smells a bit syntetic. If someone wears this I can smell it directly and often from a distance. I think it´s a warm smell and sometimes it makes me think of sunscreen protection althogh I don´t know why. Cant make up my mind if i love it or if it´s just okey.
