You can probably tell just by looking at the photo photo above that Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf is my all time favourite perfume. The fact that I own the 50ml bottle and the adorable travel duo which I purchased purely so I can keep a small bottle in my handbag at all times quite clearly convey my love for this scent. The first time I came across Flowerbomb I was in the beauty department of an airport looking for something to spend my left over euros on this was the resounding winner. 

 The scent of this perfume won me over instantly and can only be described as a floral explosion, very apt considering the name. I already predict this will be my go-to perfume for the spring/summer months as this is the perfect uplifting scent with Sambac Jasmine, Centifoila Rose, Cattleya Orchid and Ballerina Freesia bloom on a base of Patchouli which instantly puts me in a positive mood ready for the day ahead. Along with the "thousand flowers in a bottle" scent this bottle design itself was a huge thumbs up from me. I know not everyone is as shallow as me when it comes to the look of a perfume but I like to have mine out on display so tend to go for bottles that compliment the rest of my collection. The combination of bomb shaped glass bottle with the feminine dusky pink fluid captures the scent perfectly and is a great visual representation of the magic that is within. This scent even won the 2012 Beauty Club Awards in the luxury fragrance section so I am clearly not alone in my love for this perfume! You can purchase this 50ml bottle of Flowerbomb from Debenhams here for £65.  I love taking perfume out with me during the night/day for a little refresh but never want to risk breaking any of my full size perfumes so when I saw that there was a travel size available I knew I just had to have it. If you are a girl after my own heart and have this debate I highly suggest you get your paws on a travel version of your favourite scent. The travel duo includes a full bottle and a mini bottle to refill once empty, along with a little funnel to make refilling as easy as possible. I purchased this travel duo via eBay but the seller no longer lists the item. This exact set is currently available in Sephora if you live in America or don't mind paying shipping and handling costs here for $35. Fortunately for us over here in the UK Viktor & Rolf sell another travel version of this scent that is available here from Debenhams for £25. 

 Do you own any travel versions of perfumes and rate them as much as me? I would love to find more perfumes available in these sizes so please let me know if you have any of your own!
