Viktor & Rolf perfumes came about in 2005, several years after the launch of their fashion design house in 1993. Meeting in the Netherlands pursuing their education in fashion design, Viktor Horsting & Rolf Snoeren formed a partnership that they based in Paris. Of course Paris! After winning awards at Salon European des Jeunes Stylistes with their first collection, they were on their way, eventually premiering a haute couture collection in 1999 and then a return to ready-to-wear in 2000 and a menswear collection in 2003.
Viktor & Rolf have formed partnerships with other brands as well, and in 2008, Renzo Ross took a controlling interest in their company.
Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb perfume hit the fragrance market in 2005, and it arrived like the bomb it is, a big floral patchouli with no equal, it was everything that you could love and hate in a perfume. The tagline for it was "an explosion of flowers." Sweet, big, floral, and addictive. Their thoughts about Flowerbomb - "...all about the power of transformation. The power of every individual to turn anything into something positive." Every holiday season, they come out with a limited edition bottle of Flowerbomb, and in 2011 they produced an extrait version of the fragrance. Notes of tea, bergamot, sambac jasmine, orange tree, catleya orchid, freesia, rose, and amber, musk, and patchouli.
Viktor & Rolf Antidote, their fragrance for men, was launched in 2006, and seems to have gone pretty much nowhere, as did Eau Mega, but both are still being produced.
Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb, on the other hand, launched in 2012, seems to have proved almost as popular as Flowerbomb. Chili, saffron, leather and tobacco, it's all spiced manliness.
