Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb Dupe

It's not very often that I find a cheap perfume that I like, I've usually got quite expensive taste with my usual scents being between £40-£50 per bottle. However, just recently I won Bekylou's giveaway which included a bottle of Katy Perry Killer Queen. Before winning the giveaway I'd not really heard much about any of Katy Perry's perfumes and to be honest on the whole I pretty much disregarded most celebrity fragrances as I wrongly assumed that they'd all be as sickly sweet. I opened the box and sprayed it all over my dressing gown; out came a very familiar smell but I couldn't quite put my finger on what it was to begin with.

Katy Perry Killer Queen 50ml £12.99 Boots

With base notes of patchouli and praline with dark plum, wild berry and bergamot this smells just like Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb, only softer and at a fraction of the price! The Killer Queen bottle is a little bit on the 'tacky' side and it looks a bit out of place on my dressing table because it has to be stored laid down but I can definitely overlook this given it's similarity to one of my high priced favourites. The fragrance doesn't hang around for as long as Flowerbomb on skin but for £12.99 for 50ml you can afford to reapply it a couple of times. Also, if you like Flowerbomb but you still find it a little too much for day time wear this would be a great alternative because it's not as strong and overpowering. Don't get me wrong I love Flowerbomb but I'm not so keen on the £60 price tag!

This has changed my opinion of celebrity perfumes completely, this scent is far more grown up than I ever expected it to be and if you like Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb then I can't recommend this one enough. I think it's going to be a firm favourite in my perfume collection from now on! Thanks so much to Beky for introducing me to this!
