I have waited faarrrr too long for this perfume! Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf is of those things I've always wanted, and it's been floating around in my mind for the past couple of years, but now I finally have it. This was bestowed upon me by a handful of my friends as part of my birthday gift and I was sooooo excited to receive it. I did a research project on Viktor & Rolf for Design and Technology last year, and I did a whole study on Flowerbomb - so I pretty much have an encyclopedic knowledge of this perfume.
I'm one of those suckers that loves packaging. From age 13-15 I would usually buy perfumes based on how attractive the bottle was. Like hmm let's see *cough*CuriousbyBritneySpears*cough*
The multi-faceted surface of the bottle reflects the light at various angles but also makes it look like a HAND GRENADE. I was a bit slow to catch onto this.
And of course the V&R 'pull ring'. It would have been interesting if they could have designed the bottle so the tab was pulled like a pull-string toy, but instead of it making a noise it releases A FLORAL EXPLOSION from the nozzle.
My attempt at a Juergen Teller-esque photograph. Yes, I know he photographs for Marc Jacobs and not V&R...
