In case you have tried Flowerbomb but cannot spend the bucks to repurchase, today’s article is for you! If you keep reading, you will find some exciting perfumes similar to Flowerbomb!
Are you excited to find a dupe for your favorite perfume? Then I suggest you keep reading to find out!
7 Best Perfumes Similar to Flowerbomb
01# BANANA REPUBLIC Rosewood by For Women Eau De Parfum Spray
- Notes: Amber; Citrus; Fresh & Spicy
- Similar in Terms of: Freshness & Amber
I know what you might be thinking.
The notes for this one are not entirely similar to Flowerbomb. Then why has this made the list? Well, you must know that Flowerbomb is mainly a floral fragrance rich in amber. It is what gives Flowerbomb the nearly milky, sweet and powdery smell.
Because Rosewood too is an amber fragrance with amber as its base notes, it truly mimics the sweet warmth of Flowerbomb. The middle notes also has tea, whereas Flowerbomb as tea as one of its top notes. So there is that added resemblance.
This does not have that floral burst like Flowerbomb. But it does have a strong floral presence that is mostly sweet.
02# La Vie Est Belle by LANCOME PARIS for Women L’Eau de Parfum Spray
- Notes: Vanilla; Patchouli; Citrus; Floral; Powdery; Orange Blossom
- Similar in Terms of: Has Similar Floral Intensity
I should mention that this is just slightly pricier than Flowerbomb. But I had to mention this because this is such a great dupe for Flowerbomb perfume!
This has the same floral explosion that will allure you with its sweet sensuality. This too has patchouli as one of its notes, but other common notes it shares with Flowerbomb are too many.
The middle notes of Jasmine and orange blossom mimics the floral and fruity accords of Flowerbomb. However, while Flowerbomb is more musky, this is more earthy.
I personally found this to be more long-lasting than Flowerbomb. This is why I thought of suggesting this as one of the perfumes similar to Flowerbomb!
03# Black XS by Paco Rabanne for Women Eau de Toilette Spray
- Notes: Vanilla; Patchouli; Warm Spicy; Rose; Powdery
- Similar in Terms of: Has a Sweet Scent that is Floral
The original Flowerbomb has a lavish sweetness to it that is not overwhelming. It is nearly powdery and slightly musky, with a layer of spicy undertone. In my opinion, a good Flowerbomb dupe should have that same sort of sweet bloom.
This perfume by Paco Rabanne has the same sweet scent that is floral. A strong note that I can detect is that of rose, balanced by the powdery notes. The sweetness is nearly plushy due to the vanilla.
On top of that the base notes brilliantly add the sweet woody sort of white musk that tops the fragrance off perfectly!
This too has spicy patchouli, so you know what I am talking about!
04# Calvin Klein Euphoria Eau De Parfum
- Notes: Woody; Sweet; Spicy; Amber; Powdery; Musky
- Similar in Terms of: Matches Notes of Amber with Similar Floral Sweetness
Another amber based fragrance that you will confuse the original Flowerbomb with.
This musky and woody perfume by Calvin Klein has this uncanny similarity with Flower Bomb. I would be lying if I said that it was mostly the amber. The truth is the top notes for this one are fruity compared to the freshness of tea and bergamot Flower Bomb opens with.
But the middle notes are just as floral! The middle notes in Flowerbomb are superbly floral, reigned by the accords of rose, freesia, jasmine and the African Orange flower. But forget the freesia, the blend of orchid and lotus in Euphoria offers the same bloom of scent.
The base notes too are close, both being musky. I truly hope that you try this out!

05# Bath Body Works Sensual Amber Fine Fragrance Mist
- Notes: Amber; Sweet; Patchouli; Spicy; Powdery; Musky; Vanilla
- Similar in Terms of: Matches Notes of Amber with Similar Earthy Accords
Where are my mist lover girls?
Anyone who loves mist has always tried Bath & Body Works. Since strong scents give me a headache, mists have been my go to for the largest part of my life. If you ever wondered if there is a Flowerbomb dupe in a mist, you are in luck today!
While I listed perfumes similar to Victor & Rolf Flowerbomb, I thought not adding this mist would be unfair. This mist is another amber fragrance that carries accords of patchouli, vanilla, musky and more.
The spicy and powdery notes are also well mimicked in this mist. I have worn this to work many times and almost always was asked if I was wearing Flowerbomb. So I do suggest you try Sensual Amber, if anything it is much cheaper than Flowerbomb!
06# Hanae Mori Hanae Eau de Parfum Spray
- Notes: Fruity; Sweet; Patchouli; Spicy; Powdery; White Floral; Vanilla
- Similar in Terms of: Overall Scent is Similar
All floral perfume lovers, unite!
Floral perfume is never really about the floral accords solely. A lot goes to create a balance of different accords to create a floral signature scent.
The floral scent of Flowerbomb is very well resembled by this one. To summarize, the floral scent of Flowerbomb has a degree of musky warmth. The sweetness is induced by vanilla while patchouli and spicy notes balance it.
Similarly, Hanae also has those notes, right down to the white floral and powdery accords! So you see, the heart notes are very similar!
Besides the floral notes, this perfume has a lovely feminine scent. This has more fruity notes compared to Flowerbomb, which just makes it smell so delicious! I hope you enjoy this beautiful scent!
07# Katy Perry Killer Queen for Women
- Notes: Fruity; Sweet; Patchouli; Spicy; Citrus; Floral; Musky
- Similar in Terms of: More Fruity
I am so excited to talk about this dupe because, hello, it definitely is one of the nice perfumes similar to Flowerbomb!
This floral scent is very true to the heart notes of the original Flowerbomb. The sweet, floral notes, blended with patchouli, spicy and musk imitate the beautiful scent of Flowerbomb. This is a lot like Hanae- it is actually in the middle of Flowerbomb and Hanae!
I do find this to have a bit more fruity notes, and the citrus-y scent is sort of like Flowerbomb. But overall, the difference is nearly negligible, especially because the price is so cheap!
