Viktor & Rolf Celebrate ‘Flower Bomb’ 5th Anniversary

Dutch fashion designers Viktor & Rolf decided to take the opportunity of Paris Fashion Week to celebrate the 5th anniversary of their fragrance Flowerbomb.

They threw a party at Le Meurice on March 4, 2010 which featured Grace Jones singing La vie en rose as well as the presentation of a limited-edition pastry.

The pastry, co-created by the hotel’s head chef, Yannick Alléno, and its pastry chef, Camille Lesecq, was inspired by the Flowerbomb fragrance.

“The Flowerbomb-inspired cake My Sweet Flowerbomb is a millefeuille which emphasizes floral tonalities while playing on textures, even a surprising one in an attempt to mimic the experience of an explosion in the mouth.

The pastry features tasty notes of “praline, rose, lime with bergamot, jasmine sprinkled with some vanilla notes.

“The green tea-flavoured sponge base contrasts deliciously with the crunchy chips of praline biscuit. Take a bite and there’s a surprise!

The cake fizzes in your mouth as a result of a magic sugar recipe, an explosion of addictive sensations.”

The pastry will be available in the hotel’s Le Dali restaurant until June 30, 2010 for 17 Euros.
