Review: Viktor & Rolf BONBON Eau de Parfum
The avant-garde fashion house of Viktor & Rolf have done it again. The newest fragrance to every women’s beauty vanity should be BONBON. This exclusive fragrance is currently only available at Saks Fifth Avenue as 30, 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum ($115.00 - $165.00). It is the newest addition to the fragrance family, and I like to say the sister to the highly successful Flowerbomb. Victor & Rolf are no stranger to creating beautiful and unique scents, so it’s not a surprise that we are absolutely in love with the new BONBON Eau De Parfum. It honestly blows my mind that they have created another scent that smells so good. It’s just not fair to the others. Like many, I was one of those women that thought I would grow old wearing only Flowerbomb, and believed that there was no other fragrance that could compete with it. But BONBON Eau De Parfum has arrived, and it is here to stay. This is the type of item that I will have at the top of my wish list for every occasion and holiday. There should even be an official BONBON holiday that is national recognized and observed.
The balance of aromas is divine, and like no other. The top note of tangerine, blackcurrant, and orange are just enough to give an appropriate sweetness without feeling like a preteen. The orange blouson, jasmine, and peach are also a good feminine addition and are featured beautifully. The base of Guaiac Wood, Cedarwood, Caramel give a warm comforting element that is mature and almost androgynous. The bottle design is signature to the Viktor & Rolf brand. A bow to me is a staple in all things regal and is seen on every red carpet and couture house. In fashion a bow is everything! It’s a beautiful symbol of “you can look, but can’t touch.” Secure and confident but approachable. The women that wears BONBON is sophisticated, fun, inviting and fashionable. She is your recent college graduate who’s single and entering the real world, but also the established business owner who is confident and sure of herself. She is complete and confident. I have made this my signature scent and I encourage you to do the same. Salute to an another amazing fragrance offered by the amazing duo, Viktor & Rolf. Top: Tangerine, Blackcurrant, Orange
