Re: Similar to flowerbomb

You should really give Rosewood or Hypnose Senses a try! Also The Beat is similar but with an added woodsy cedar that the others don't have..

Re: Similar to flowerbomb

I have tried the beat but don't like it much.. too melony sort of thing for me (sorry, I am not an expert in describing perfumes)

hypnose senses is a new one right? I'll give it a go next time Im out... thanks

Re: Similar to flowerbomb

You can try Sensual Amber from Bath and Body Works. They are quite similar (I had it and some people asked if I am wearing Flowerbomb or not)

Re: Similar to flowerbomb

oh one question.. rosewood  edp or edt?

Re: Similar to flowerbomb

Mine is an edp. I've never seen an option for edt. http://fimgs.net/b/img/smilies/tummenupp.gif

Re: Similar to flowerbomb

I have to disagree with true68: Flowerbomb and Charles Jourdan The Parfum are nothing alike on me. The Parfum is peach and flowers on a resin base where Flowerbomb is an edible flowerless vanilla sandalwood. Rosewood is probably a whole lot closer, though a much paler, sheerer scent to my nose. Burberry Beat also has a similar sandalwood vanilla edge. 
Cheers!

Re: Similar to flowerbomb

well... I find Flowerbomb almost imposible to replace or difficult to find a similar one.... I mean the fragrance is beautiful and the quality of the perfume itself is awesome....

may be.... may be....
I could replace it with other two orientals....
http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.1229.jpg Thierry Mugler Eau de Star  .... they share the sweet notes....

and another perfume which seems not to appear in the database,  If I am not mistaken,  its name is Montana Femme...a beautiful oriental... floral... sweet... and long lasting.http://fimgs.net/b/img/smilies/smile.png

LORENA's Website

Re: Similar to flowerbomb

Hi,

I have Flowerbomb and BR Rosewood and like them both.  I do not think Rosewood should be considered a substitute at all for because of the amber notes in it- which to me is very distinct in a nice way.  There is a similarity between the two, but if you have them both it is really clear how different they are.  Rosewood gives me a much warmer creamy woodsy vibe.  FB has a unique punchy deep floral sweetness from the get go.  The dry downs are completely different.  Flowerbomb stays sweeter and more crisp while Rosewood is muddled , vanilla/powdery and creamy

No one mentioned Nanette yet, so if you see it give it a try as well. Again like Rosewood, there are slight similarities to FB but they are still distinct enough. It's not as sweet as Flowerbomb.  I think Nanette is more floral than Rosewood, still much different than FB.  This is newer to me, but I am starting to like it a lot.  It is a great fragrance, similar to Flowerbomb to me in the middle notes, I would say more suitable for anytime.  Flowerbomb is stronger, more of a statement purfume.   

Good call to those that suggested/compared FB to Can Can & also Bath and Body works Sensual Amber. Now that I think about it there are similarities to those as well.  I like & have those ones as well...ha! go figure.  I think I need to go and and try Black XS next.  glad

Overall, Flowerbomb is still wonderfully special and distinct enough from others.  Still nothing is for everyone.  Good luck finding something you like, do tell us when you do.

Re: Similar to flowerbomb

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.707.jpg Thierry Mugler Alien is similar to Flowerbomb (at least to my nose). They are both light, powdery scents that are heavy on the jasmine sambac.

I agree, I'd recommend BB&W Sensual Amber as well.

Re: Similar to flowerbomb

The closest match fore sure is this:   http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.932.jpgCacharel Liberte  They are absolutely the same

Re: Similar to flowerbomb

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.6205.jpg Lancome Hypnose Senses definitely smells like flowerbomb only a little less sweet
