If your expecting flowerbomb, Think again.
Ahhh! I received this lovely Victor & Rolf fragrance voxbox from Influenster and Victor & Rolf for free, in exchange for my honest review. I'm always super stoked when I get a fragrance voxbox, because collecting designer and niche fragrances is my main hobby. It's always a pleasure to receive such awesome fragrances and opportunities as this. Now let's talk about the new Victor & Rolf fragrance "Good Fortune" All in all, I give this fragrance 4 stars, not quite 5 because I have smelled similar , but smells divine. This is definitely a warm floral, and leans jasmine more than anything. If your expecting "flowerbomb" think again. This is not a flowerbomb flank, in fact it smells nothing like flowerbomb. I mainly smell jasmine when first sprayed. Once the juice settles in, that's when you get whiffs of the bourbon vanilla. That's the part of this fragrance I enjoy the most. If I had to compare this fragrance, I would say this smells a lot like Giorgio Armani "My way Intense" and Mugler "Alien" I believe "Good fortune" is the baby made from the two fragrances lol. I was honestly expecting another flowerbomb flank, but their nothing alike in comparison. This fragrance is beautiful, but not for everyone. I don't get the "sweet" smell people are talking about, I get floral and jasmine. If you don't like jasmine, you might not like this either. The vanilla bourbon only comes out once settled into the skin. Overall, it's a very refined fragrance. Great for daytime, nighttime, work, after a shower, before intimacy, a date, all season, this fragrance is an easy grab if you love jasmine and warm florals. I love Victor & Rolf, so I will be adding this gem to my rotation that I wear. Also, the bottle is refillable, and all glass. The top is an amethyst stone ( my birthstone how cool) and it's an all vegan perfume. The juice is such a beautiful purple also. This is definitely a mystical fragrance, and not for just anybody either. This fragrance will stick out on the right person I'm telling you.
The bottle immediately gave me fortune teller vibes- a little dark, mysterious, and at the same time enchanting. Absolutely love the shape of the bottle which resembles a crystal ball, the golden accents, and the faceted stone-like cap.
Top Notes : Fennel & Gentian co-distillate
Heart: Jasmine Superinfusion
Base: Bourbon Vanilla Infusion
In a lot of fragrances with vanilla notes, the warm vanilla usually takes the center stage but this is not the case with Good Fortune. Vanilla might be hidden in there somewhere but is unfortunately overpowered by the florals. I'm a huge fan of vanilla and vanilla floral fragrances but this one missed the mark.
Good Fortune dies down surprisingly fast. After a short few minutes, I can only detect the scent up close. Silage is pretty much non existent.
With a beautifully designed bottle like this, I expected much more and was unfortunately let down by Good Fortune. Dark, deep, and something mysterious that draws you in and keeps you guessing. Instead, Good Fortune is a simple, "not sweet enough for me" floral fragrance combined with some herbal spiciness. In the beginning, Fennel makes its appearance every now and then but not in a good way.
Good Fortune is mediocre at best and won't make you stand out of the crowd.
Bottle Design: 8/10
This isn't it
Glad I only tried the tester because this was way too floral-y for me and not unique in the least. I personally don't like to leave a trail of perfume when I enter a room and I'm pretty sure this scent would do that, leaving passers by with a headache.
So glad I waited on purchasing this
I have 6 different perfumes from Viktor & Rolf that are all amazing and sensual smelling. I was astonished when I received a sample of Good Fortune. I smelled like an old woman sitting next to a bowl of potpourri. Immediately had to change the shirt I was wearing.
I almost blind bought this and honestly, so glad i didn't. I agree with whoever else said it was giving old lady because that's exactly what i thought. It's very strong too. Like, sprayed a tester, left it in the bag, stuffed it under my car seat, and can still smell it in the air the next day. I ended up getting acqua di gioia instead and am much happier with that. But that just reflects my taste in scents! If you don't like those heavy, mature woman smells, def skip this one
I got this as a sample and now I'll be buying the full size. It's amazing. It's a warm floral smell. And so far it's staying on for a long time. Added right to my collection 💕
I love most Viktor & Rolf fragrances and tried this yesterday and didn't purchase. Got home and was loving it so went and purchased tonight!
