BONBON BY VIKTOR & ROLF
Tuesday, 20 May 2014
I've never fallen in love with a Viktor & Rolf fragrance but I literally LOVE this one! If like me, you love sweet smelling gorgeousness that screams out FEMININITY then you're sure to love BONBON.
Firstly, how cute is the bow shaped bottle?! It looks so pretty on my dressing table- however not the type of fragrance to carry around in your bag as its fairly heavy and oddly shaped but nonetheless so beautiful to look at and a perfect fragrance to give as a gift too!
Bonbon is composed of sparkling, effervescent mandarin and orange slices crystalized into crackling pieces of caramel wrapping succulent fruit.... (as described on the press release!) Sounds truly delicious doesn't it?! The fact this fragrance includes citrus ingredients would normally make me loath it before I'd even smelt it, but it must be the crystalized caramel because I find this scent so addictive and warming with no hints of the usual tell-tell orange smell that I usually dislike. It smells delicious...
'The sweetness of paradise peach accord flirts tenderly with supple caramel notes, clinging to the roundness of peach's fleecy surface.
Sun-filled jasmine is sustained by orange blossom whose sweet flavour clings to the soft smell of caramel' - yes yes yes, you can almost taste it can't you, it really is as sweet and creamy as it sounds - almost good enough to eat!
I can't get enough of this fragrance at the moment, its the perfect girly day to day fragrance that will make make anyone who comes near you want to quite literally kiss you!
