Flowerbomb fragrance by Viktor & Rolf

The Oslo Airport in Norway has decided to pull the Flowerbomb fragrance by Viktor & Rolf from the shelves of its duty-free boutiques.

The grenade-like shape of the Flowerbomb bottle falls into the category of unauthorized items such as "weapons or objects that look like weapons" that cannot pass security controls, explains airport spokesperson to

Airport's security rules in Oslo are very tight.

"Another example is a simple child's water gun, which is also unauthorized," spokesperson added.

L'Oral launched Flowerbomb, designed to embody a "flower explosion", in October 2004. The French group was unavailable for comment, says.

"In a year, if we see that no other airports have followed suit, we may have to reconsider our position," the spokesperson explains.
