Viktor and Rolf Bonbon Couture Eau de Parfum Intense

Viktor and Rolf need no introduction when it comes to perfumes and fragrances and when this Bonbon Couture Eau de Parfum Intense dropped on my doorstep, I was pretty excited to give it a try because I have read and seen so much about it.

The packaging is amazingly pretty and stands out immediately, bright pink in design the the box hosts a 3D V&R seal which is a nice detail to see. Inside the bottle is simple stunning, taking the form of a bow, which is replicated on the front of the box, again the 3D seal is present and I think it is just stunningly presented.


Viktor & Rolf have described this new fragrance as 'The "Haute Couture" reinterpretation of Viktor & Rolf’s sweet Bonbon perfume from 2014, Bonbon Couture is said to be a more intensive, luxurious and stronger than the original'. Now I love the original and was slightly worried this would not meet my expectations, but it blew them right out of the water and it is just absolutely divine and it is a much more intense version of Bonbon and much longer lasting. The fragrance opens with a juicy combination of mandarin, neroli oil and peach which make up the top notes and as soon as the fragrance is spritzed you get a hit of fruit, as the scent settled we get the heart notes orange blossom and Sambac jasmine which is then sweetened by a potent caramel note that is not sickly at all and for me the Jasmine is just stunning. The base notes are made up of sandalwood and patchouli, with vanilla and blonde tobacco giving it a woody accord that works well alongside the fruit.


Once spritzed this is a scent which packs a powerful punch and as it settles, the fragrance is lovely, noticeable and long-lasting, the kind of scent you don't need to reapply because you can smell it all day long and it is perfect for any season and any time of day whether you are going to work, out with friends, on a date or just because you want to smell amazing.


This fragrance will be available at Selfridges from 14th September and will cost £57 for a 30ml bottle, £79 for a 50ml bottle and £109 for a 90ml bottle.
