Viktor & Rolf are probably most well known in the fragrance world for their instantly recognisable Flowerbomb perfume, which was quickly followed by the unique bow-shaped Bon Bon range. In 2022, they presented the world with another unique creation; Good Fortune, followed by Good Fortune Elixir Intense in 2023. This article explains what Good Fortune and Fortune Elixir Intense smell like and they differences between the two perfumes.

In the UK & Europe you can buy the Good Fortune fragrances at Escentual, John Lewis, Fragrance Direct, The Fragrance Shop and LookFantastic (20% off with code LFTFSOKI). In the US it can be found at Ulta, Sephora, and Bloomingdales.

Viktor & Rolf Good Fortune

Fundamentally, Good Fortune is all about a strong Jasmine heart note. It isn’t as strong as something like Mugler’s Alien, but its pretty good for lasting.

There is a unique Fennel and Gentiana top note which adds a fresh green vibe to the heavier Jasmine and Vanilla notes.

The base note is a Bourbon Vanilla which combines with the white floral heart to create a scent which is reminiscent of Valentino’s Voce Viva Intensa.

For me, Viktor & Rolf Good Fortune is all about the unique bottle, which really does have that fortune teller orb feel about it.

Viktor & Rolf Good Fortune Elixir Intense

With a name which includes both ‘Elixir’ and ‘Intense’ you know this is going to be a heavy fragrance; and Viktor & Rolf Good Fortune Elixir Intense doesn’t disappoint. Incense and sandalwood recreate the scent of walking into a fortune teller’s tent and create the kind of fragrance which I expected from the original given the name Good Fortune. The jasmine and vanilla of the original fragrance remain but they are not longer the stars of the show.

Viktor & Rolf Good Fortune Elixir Intense is a strong perfume with good lasting power; I recommend it for the colder months as it’s too intense for warm weather.
