Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb

Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb

This floral explosion releases a profusion of flowers that has the power to make everything seem more positive. Magically evocative notes immediately awaken your deepest senses, giving you the impression of living life in your own secret garden, away from reality.

Created by one of my favourite perfumers Olivier Polge, along with Carlos Benaim and Domitille Berthier, it was introduced ten years ago, in 2005 as an oriental and floral fragrance, and became a true classic and was Allure Best of Beauty award winner.

I found that this has a really sweet, powdery scent that could be overpowering but isn’t. Normally this would put me off a perfume but it hasn’t with this one.  You can really smell the patchouli and the orchid adds a sweet elegance to the scent.  When this is combined to the subtle luxury of the green tea, you have a really pretty perfume. It is really long-lasting and a few sprays will last for hours, which I always love with a fragrance.

  • Top notes: Bergamot, Green Tea, Osmanthus
  • Heart notes: Jasmine, African Orange Flower, Freesia, Rose, Orchid
  • Base notes: Musk, Patchouli



The gorgeous bottle was designed by Fabien Baron in the shape of a diamond grenade.

You love Viktor & Rolf’s Flowerbomb? Use it with Body Lotion or for the dry skin Flowerbomb Bodycream in its beautiful jar. Or, very special: with Flowerbomb Hair Mist, to give your hair a vèry subtile smell. And when your hair ‘moves’….(wink)…

Dahlia Noir Givenchy Paris


The Black Dahlia was the name given to actress Elizabeth Short, a young American actress who was brutally murdered and mutilated in 1947. The crime was never solved. And the gruesome case inspired attention both on the big and small screen.

Maison Givenchy is launching a new fragrance for women, Dahlia Noir. Compelling then that designer Riccardo Tisci chose the name for his debut fragrance at the house of Givenchy. Tisci’s Black Dahlia scent is most definitely dark and compelling; rest assured it’s more glamorous than gruesome. A couture fragrance all in pure lines, a return to supreme luxury. The quintessence of the Givenchy style.



Dahlia Noir Givenchy Parfum

Created by Francois Demachy, the new fragrance embodies elegance, seduction and a touch of pure subtleness. Givenchy Dahlia Noir has a floral composition, is very intense and with sensual notes that constantly lure. Dahlia Noir also named as a ‘Fatal Flower’ is designed to delight all mysterious women and to melt their hearts.

Givenchy’s Dahlia Noir has a chypre floral composition. Perfume opens with mandarin, mimosa and pink pepper notes along with heart notes of rose, patchouli and iris. Dahlia Noir calms on the skin with long-lasting motes of vanilla, sandalwood and Tonka bean.



To personify the perfume’s dark beauty, Tisci chose Italian model Mariacarla Boscono, a model he has worked with for several years, ever since their shared student days at Central Saint Martins School in London. In fact, she has been the face of Givenchy’s ads since 2005.

The Dahlia Noir campaign – print images by Mert & Marcus, and the Dahlia Noir ad film, which was directed by Fabien Baron – Boscono wears black-leather-and-silk Givenchy couture. As her raven-black hair and the black chiffon of her gown dance in the current of Baron’s wind machine, she personifies Tisci’s vision, a windswept flower in some dark and brooding dream.

Givenchy Dahlia Noir 50ml EDP HIGivenchy Dahlia Noir is sealed in a simple yet elegant flacon. Exquisite, with its heavy glass embellished by black lacquer and silver, it is solid yet delicate, elegant yet modest. Its well-structured shape recalls the 1950s, the golden age of perfumery. It is available in three sizes, 30, 50 and 75 ml Eau de Parfum, and as Parfum.
