    Default Walked into a gallery today, the artist was in the corner on the floor...........

    [FONT="Comic Sans MS"][SIZE="6"][LIST]
    • forgot what she was doing but I began to talk to her about her beautiful paintings on large canvas.
    • As I approached I could clearly make out a great scent! I thought for sure........Bath & Body Works Sensuous Amber......or is it Sensual Amber?, anyways.............I was sure that that was the scent she was wearing or had bathed with/in.

    • I asked her about the scent, it turns out she was wearing Flower Bomb!
    • I've never sniffed F.B. by Viktor but was surprised that it smelled so much like B&BW's S.Amber.
    • Ladies and Gents who have tried both, are they alike? I love B&BW's S.Amber!

    I don't like FlowerBomb, but personal chemistry can make a great difference. Not always, but sometimes somebody's skin can make a whole new fragrance out of one you thought you knew.
    I don't know S.Amber, will have to try it out.

    “Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.”

    I don't know Sensual Amber, but I love Flowerbomb. I guess that's not the answer you're looking for. :-/

    To me Flowerbomb smells very similar to many other fragrances. Not one spcifically, it more has a kind of nondescript / generic vibe that makes it familiar in a uninteresting way. Obviously, no offense intended.

    Yes, it smells a little like Lolita Lempicka, but softer & more floral.

    Thanks for your input, for some reason I've thought of S. Amber by B&BW more of a gourmand than oriental because it just smells so yummy, something like caramel!

    I think it's fair to call any oriental that goes overboard with notes of tolu/peru balsam, caramel, praline, vanilla, chocolate, etc, an oriental gourmand.
