If you love Viktor & Rolf's Flowerbomb perfume, BUY THIS ONE. It's so much lower in price than you would get at Niemann Marcus or Bloomingdale's (most stores, including Sephora, don't carry it). This is definitely one of the more expensive perfumes out there, but the price on Overstock is seriously unbeatable. It is the 3.7 oz so it's the bottle shown in the photo (sometimes when you buy perfume in a smaller size bottle online, it's not the same bottle design as the one advertised). This is the eau de parfum, so it is more concentrated the eau de toilette and therefore lasts much longer. I've gotten compliments on it and personally, I get distracted at how good it smells when I wear it. lol. The bottle and box design is also really cute. I love love love this stuff.
I have worn Flowerbomb since it came out. LOVE it but not a scent for everyone. No good reason to try to steer an opinion of something so personal as scent anyhow. It seemed (looked in color and was in scent) authentic, however the label on the bottle was a bit crooked. Like a LV or Gucci bag always being perfect in it's stitches or pattern alignment, Flowerbomb bottles, any of them I have seen, are flawless. Good deal if this doesn't bother you. Not great as a gift.

I had been wanting this fragrance for a long time, but the $160.00 price tag deterred me until I saw this. I was hesistant, only because I only purchase frags from department stores but it came packaged up brand new. Sillage/color of FB looks just like that of a dep store. Lasts and lasts, I can smell this in my hair and clothes days after application. Only need a spritz or two, it is a powerful scent. I have bought other perfumes after this purchase, and am confident in authenticity of Overstock's products.

It's very sweet and floral but the patouchli gives it an edge that I absolutely adore. It starts with lots of sugar candy and a bit of citrus, and dries down to a sweet, slightly vanillic dessert of amber and patchouli. It is very smooth and creamy, with no hard edges. There are some flowers along the way, but they are not assertive. I should not think you would have to like flowers to like Flowerbomb.
I don't want to offend lovers of this Flowerbomb parfum; but for me, it was a bomb. I couldn't dislike it any more than I do. I am grateful that Overstock has this review option as a way for consumers to help each other out. I may even like Flowerbomb on someone else; but I do not like it on me. If you like "Pure" by Donna Karan, or "Rose The One" by Dolce & Gabana, or "Flora" by Gucci or "Jessica McClintock #3----I can almost guarantee that you will NOT like this perfume. I bought this from O. based solely on the reviews because Flowerbomb was not available to try out at any perfume counter near me. I made this mistake of purchasing it without a test spray----had I been able to do that; I would have instantly known that this fragrance was not right for me. The only "positive?" I can say about this parfum is that it does have great staying power. I don't like to leave negative reviews, but I want to help others to not make the same mistake I did. Just don't buy it without a test spray. If you sample it and find you love it---you will get a great price for it from O.
I ordered this online after reading all the good comments from buyers but I was sooo disappointed with my order. I tried a sample from Nordstrom and Sephora. I only sprayed once and the scent lasted for at least 8 hours. This one that I got from Overstock, I sprayed it on my wrist and I can barely smell it. Very disappointing!! I this this a knockoff so guys, BEWARE of ordering perfumes at Overstock specially they don't have return policies for fragrances. Hopefully this will be helpful for other customers out there.

I had purchased this as a gift for my daughter, this being her favorite perfume. I had purchased it on line, as I did not have time to go to the city to shop at the time. Later, when shopping in the city, I saw a display for this item in a department store, and was surprised to see the price of the item. I had gotten a significantly better price on Overstock for the same item!!! So, the convenience of shopping from home, and now knowing that the price was substantially less for the very same quality product, I will have to say that I will check Overstock in the future before looking in retail stores. I have found this to be true on other items of this nature, and they are always quality, top of the line, authentic products. I even found one item that had been discontinued in stores on Overstock! Plus, its price was very affordable. Thank you, Overstock.com.
It is poor. THe product is a parfum and has to be sprayed on several times within a an hour to have any smell. I have bought from expensive establishments and this product is definitely NOT the same frangrance notes as the existing one I have at home, which is now close to finish. I am greatly disappointed! My friend at work keeps asking me if I am sure my Oovstock purchase is the same product or maybe OVSTCK sent me Aue de toilet instead of the parfum.....But the bottle states PARFUM...frustrated.. And, I ordered serveral other PARFUMs which are on there way...oh I can't wait to smell those.

I was crazy for the smell when I first encountered this product at the mall. I still believe it smells good but it has a strong base odor that can be overwhelming for the wearer. The smell doesn't last, it must be re-applied throughtout the day. My husband loves the smell but can only notice it when he sniffs the exact location where it was applied. Other than that, I didn't receive any compliments from other people at "safe" distance. It makes me wonder whether or not they can even smell it. Still waiting for the impact I was hoping for when I decided to purchase.
I LOVE THE SCENT AND THE PRICE MADE IT EVEN BETTER!!!

my daughter wanted this perfume for her Christmas present. I has a nice scent however I don't think it's worth the price. I like other scents more than this one but perfume is an individual taste/preference.

Bought this for my wife's birthday after I overheard her talking about it with some girlfriends. She loves it, she sprays it on all the time and her girls want to know where she got it from. I definitely got points for that one. Bottom line is it is a quality product for the best price on the internet for this size. I would not buy this product anywhere else.

My wife has been using this perfume for years and ran out a few months back. Our twin boys wanted their Mom to smell nice again so "they" bought it for her for Christmas this year. I tried to purchase it at several local mall department stores but it was out of stock which was good for me as I ended up saving $$ on this bottle of perfume through Overstock.com and I received it in the mail in less than 3 days.
