Flowerbomb banned in Oslo airport

by Grant Osborne, 26th April, 2006

Basenotes' visitor's favourite, Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf has been banned from duty free shops in Oslo so that "extremists will not be tempted to use it as a prop" according to Yahoo! News

The Flowerbomb bottle, which is shaped like a hand grenade, was withdrawn after a Norwegian passenger was found carrying the bottle in her hand luggage at Beavais airport.

A similar incident happened in 2003 in Philadelphia International Airport when a international student was held for four hours after carrying a bottle of Diesel Green - shaped like a bottle of garden fertilizer.

      Yeah, real scary, an extremist with a bottle of Victor&Rolf. Maybe one of those "Pink Fashion Brigade " extremists.

      Now, an extremist with a bottle of Kouros, THAT's scary!
