NEW | Viktor & Rolf Bonbon Couture*

It's my birthday today! And what better way to celebrate turning 25(!) than a new(-ish) perfume?! I was recently sent a bottle of Viktor & Rolf's new perfume launch, Bonbon Couture*. Launching earlier this month, the scent is described as, "an even more opulent, intense interpretation of Bonbon - the all-encompassing sensory experience of the fragrance is enriched, the ritual enhanced and the ceremonious pursuit of pleasure acutely heightened."
NEW Viktor & Rolf Bonbon Couture Eau de parfum
Modelled on the original packaging, the outer box is bright-pink and features a plastic seal with the V&R logo - it's these little touches that make the brand feel so high-end, in my opinion. The bottle itself is shaped like a wrapped sweet, although I admit that for quite some time, I thought it was meant to be a bow - and I know I'm not the only one! The bottle features the brand name engraved on the cap, and the little seal with the V&R logo as found on the outer packaging.
The opening notes consist of mandarin, neroli and peach, with a heart of orange blossom, sanbac jasmine and caramel. The base notes include sandalwood, patchouli, vanilla and blond tobacco; these notes combine to give a warm, rich and striking gourmand fragrance which I've fallen in love with. Just a couple of spritzes is plenty to give a noticeable scent, and it last really well on the skin - I can easily still smell it after 12-14 hours of wear, which is pretty good going! It's probably not one for the faint of heart but it truly is a gorgeous perfume and one I've been getting a lot of wear out of in the few weeks it's been sat amongst my collection.

"Like the touch and perfect fit of a unique couture creation of the most opulent textiles such as organza and satin duchesse, Bonbon Couture languidly cloaks the the body as a silky second skin, adhering to the codes of meticulous tailoring, structural silhouettes, and outspoken volumes that are ultimately transformational."
Viktor & Rolf Bonbon Couture
Viktor & Rolf Bonbon Couture eau de parfum is priced from £57 for 30ml, available from Selfridge's here, with prices rising to £79 for 50ml and £109 for 90ml. There's no doubt that it's an investment scent but it really is a beautiful fragrance and given how long-lasting it is, there'll be no need to re-spray throughout the day so I expect it to last fairly well.
Do you like the sound of Bonbon Couture? What's your favourite Viktor & Rolf fragrance?
