We all love updating our wardrobe for Spring here in the office, we also like ditching the heavy musky scents in favour of something lighter and dare we say it ethereal. Introducing Flowerbomb Dew by Rictor and Rolf.
Delicate drops of floral dew freshness on a nude skin. Flowerbomb Dew seamlessly melts onto fresh skin enveloping the senses with a Dewy Rose Accord, Sensual Iris Concrete and Intimate Musks creating a glowing floral sensation. Viktor&Rolf refresh their fragrance universe introducing a new day and a new dawn for Flowerbomb with Flowerbomb Dew. With this new chapter debuts a light, sensual yet powerful dew mist that applies as a delicate and natural second-skin, that naturally accentuates and compliments. Like a subtle drop of moisture on a rose petal from the morning dawn, Flowerbomb Dew silkens over fresh, dewy skin ushering in a new day, a new opportunity, an exploration of the senses, a transformation and a return to essentials. A natural second-skin. A pure natural glow. A sense of self.
With crisp, sparkling and succulent top notes of Pear Accord and Bergamot Essence, Flowerbomb Dew captivates the senses with a first Delicate Dew Accord featuring its star ingredient of the Dewy Rose Accord, which smoothly opens to a floral, sensual heart highlighted by iridescent, musky addictive nuances from the Ambrette Seeds Absolute. The precious Dewy Rose Accord is born here – manifesting an olfactive experience capturing a rose that grows in water infused with transparent dew for a scent that melts like water on your skin.
A garden rose from the tea rose family, the Dewy Rose is a hybrid rose conceived from breeding hybrid perpetual roses and tea roses. Growing in water, the result is a magnificent flower tinted with rosy and white striations, which continue to unveil their beauty – petal by petal – from Spring’s first moments to Autumn.
On account of The Living™ flower technology – which provides a solution to capture scents of life without destroying it and delivers more lifelike fragrance oils than traditional extraction – the Dewy Rose Accord captures and recreates the scent of a living flower. Faceted to the floral heart of Flowerbomb Dew and complimented by Rose Essential™ Essence and Living™ Fragrant Dewy Rose Hydroponique, the Dewy Rose Accord offers a fresh, petaly highlight.
The second, Sensual Accord is accented with a tea facet enhanced by the feminine Orris Concrète LMR note – rich with its powerful, floral trail. This new opus reveals both an addictive and sensual dry down, where the Heliotrope Accord’s almondy, floral, balsamic and vanilla-scented notes blend with the woody, ambery, musky sensuality of Cashmeran.
The third and final Second-Skin Accord is illuminated by Hedenolide musk <captive IFF musk>; Ambrette Seeds Absolute and Vanilla Bean CO² Extract bring the hallmark, iconic Flowerbomb core scent full circle with its iridescent and musky addiction.

Flowerbomb Dew’s transparent, pearlescent white bottle mimics its second-skin nature. In keeping with Flowerbomb’s diamond grenade silhouette yet in contrast to previous forms in darker palettes, Flowerbomb Dew is a presence unto itself. The bottle design is light like the subtle drop of moisture on a morning rose much like the delicate, dewy mist of the juice contained within. The outer box reflects a floral second-skin – in contrasting, impactful tonal whites and pinks embossed with Viktor&Rolf’s iconic Haute Couture flower. This bottle palette and packaging is a creative departure for Viktor&Rolf yet in keeping with Flowerbomb’s hallmark cylindrical shape and adorned with a precious pink metal plate.
