The iconic fragrance celebrates its 10th anniversary with a limited-edition La Vie En Rose edition

Eccentric Dutch designing duo Viktor & Rolf may have dropped out of the spotlight as of late, but their Flowerbomb fragrance created with L'Oréal remains a bestseller. Each summer, a limited-edition version of the scent is released. To celebrate their 10th anniversary, this year's La Vie En Rose Flowerbomb comes in a sleek, pink bottle, coated with a shimmering finish — inspired by the wings of a butterfly. The juice inside is fresh and almost tangy. It combines rose and sambac jasmine absolutes with a special heights orchid as well as sun-infused notes of mandarin and grapefruit. Finally a hint of green tea adds just a touch of bitterness to this luminous scent.

$89 for 50ml. Available in July.
