I can't imagine a *more* intense version of Flowerbomb, but I want to try it sooooo bad! Why's it so darn expensive?!? *pouts*
Unfortunately Flowerbomb does not seem to have made its way to the discounters yet, but there is still hope!
I've tryed the new avon perfume on after seeing it in alot of the magazines. It's like fresh chocolate with mint! At least that's what I felt. It's extremely “fizzy”, is the only word to describe it. Really opens the nose, but not offensive. It did last, and made me feel good through the day.
Fizzy chocolate with mint! Was this from a scent strip, or you got a real sample?
It was a pad sample, I tryed it on my skin. I was very surprised!
Thanks, I'll have to flip through some mags & look for it!
R, I tested Flowerbomb for the first time today! From smelling it on the paper stripe I found it veeery intense, almost overwhelming & very sweet. To my surprise, that wasn´t what I got when I sprayed it on my skin. It was sweet, but not that sweet & it got rather powdery. The drydown has a wonderful patchouli note. I must admit: I like it – can´t believe it ;D
Now you'll have to decide if you buy the regular or wait for the Extreme! I have a feeling they will have tweaked the notes in the Extreme & not just made it stronger — it is already reasonably strong.
Extreme Flowerbomb? Sounds scary, as the original is already very strong. I will definitely test it, as I love the original.
Have to agree, although as I said above, maybe what they've done is tweak the formula rather than making it stronger. Do comment if you find it, I'm not sure it is in stores yet.
Wow! The Bursch sounds wonderful! Can't wait to get my hands on a sampe of that! Thanks for the info!
I just realized recently that I really like Flowerbomb. My tastes are changing it seems. Looking forward to trying the new one.
I want to try it too M!
