Anyone who knows me will tell you I never shut up about Viktor & Rolf perfumes. I have two that are always in my top five fragrance rotations, and I truly never get sick of them. Before giving any of the brand's bestsellers a sniff, I think I got ideas in my head about how they would smell. I honestly wasn't sure if I'd fall in love with any of them after looking at the notes because they seemed pretty standard, but, boy, was I wrong. They're now some of the best designer perfumes I own and I'll openly admit I was pleasantly surprised by how unique each one turned out to be.
If you're in the market for a sgnature scent, Viktor & Rolf fragrances should definitely be kept top of mind. You'll also be pleasantly surprised to learn that each is one-of-a-kind and truly worthy of a spot on your vanity. Keep scrolling for all the best ones to add to your collection.
1. Good Fortune Eau de Parfum
Key notes: Fennel-gentian flower extract, jasmine superinfusion, bourbon vanilla
Kicking this off with my most-worn and loved perfume from Viktor & Rolf, Good Fortune. It's a fairly new launch for the brand, but it immediately captured my attention with its rich notes of bourbon vanilla and jasmine. It's a favorite of mine because it's sweet and has a strong presence, but there's also an air of mystery to the scent that gives it an edge. I genuinely always receive compliments on it when I wear it and I can't stop sniffing my wrist when I spritz it on.
2. BonBon Eau de Parfum
Key notes: Blackcurrant, peach, caramel
This is definitely a gourmand scent and not for everyone, but if you like fragrances with notes of sweet, tasty caramel, this one's for you. The notes of blackcurrant and peach definitely add to the juicy, delicious scent, but I like that it isn't overpowering or sickly sweet. The notes are just perfectly balanced.
3. Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum
Key notes: Jasmine, orange blossom, patchouli
Flowerbomb is my second favorite of the bunch. I expected this fragrance to smell extremely floral, but I was surprised to discover it smells more like cake batter and pure happiness. It's most likely the strong combo of orange blossom and patchouli, but if you also adore the smell of fresh ice cream cones and cake (in an elevated way, of course), give this one a try.
4. Spicebomb Eau de Toilette
Key notes: Sage, triple black spice complex, roasted almonds
Spicebomb is obviously for those who like to go heavier on the spice. Notes of bergamot, pink pepper, chili, and cinnamon burst forward upon the first spritz. What really stands out though is the base of leather, tobacco, and vetiver. It's earthy and makes a statement but notes of roasted almond also add softness and creaminess to it so it's not too much.
5. Flowerbomb Ruby Orchid
Key notes: Vine peach, ruby orchid, bourbon vanilla.
This slightly more floral rendition of Flowerbomb is equally as good as the OG. In fact, I had a hard time deciding which one I liked more. Vanilla bean accord is one of my favorite perfume notes and it smells so lush when combined with ruby orchid, peach, and bourbon vanilla.
6. Spicebomb Extreme Eau de Parfum
Key notes: Grapefruit, cinnamon, woody amber.
This amped-up version of Spicebomb is woody, aromatic, and even more explosive. I love the addition of lavender and black pepper to the base notes of tobacco and vanilla. It definitely packs a punch, so if you're looking for something subtle, this probably isn't it.
