Bombay Bling Review

Bombay Bling’s opening does an incredibly convincing impression of a ripe, Bowen mango: close your eyes and you can easily think yourself tucking into that deliciously pulpy, yellow flesh, all sweetly tropical smelling and undercut by a green tang from the skin. 
It’s a cheap trick though, for the magic is short lived: first the fruity notes disappear, then the green notes, leaving behind only an excessively sweet, ambery floral accord. Or perhaps that should be an ‘expensive trick’: Bombay Bling is £150 for 60mL.
