My Bliss Was Definitely Budding...

The Budding Bliss got my bliss budding fairly early but couldn't quite get me over the edge without some body contortions. This is a really beautiful toy that makes you ready to forgive it's sort-comings! The rotation of the shaft is powerful and very stimulating but may click and pop when you apply pressure with your muscles. If you like direct clitoral stimulation or muted, light vibrations this will send you over the moon. If not, there's always the amazing rotations.
High grade silicone, beautiful toy, silky soft finish, powerful rotation and vibrations.
Rose portion is oddly shaped and doesn't fit some body types, shaft could be longer.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


The Budding Bliss by Vibratex is a rabbit type vibrator that is very pretty, feminine and easily manipulated. The rotating shaft describes a wide arc and the vibrating rose is vigorous and powerful. It is built to stimulate the G spot while stimulating the clitoris. If you are a woman with an easily reached, shallow G spot and sensitive clitoris that is close to your vaginal opening it will be a little slice of heaven. My g spot is easily stimulated and shallow but my clitoral hood is located high up so the rose didn't quite reach with out the toy being jammed painfully against my lady parts.

This is a fairly loud toy that unlike other rabbit vibes gets louder when it's inserted so if you need or desire privacy this is one toy you'll want to use when you are alone or with some pretty loud music.

Material / Texture

The silicone is velvety smooth with a perfect amount of drag. It feels amazing with just a few drops of water based lube. There are some nubs just under the head of the shaft that are easily felt when the head is rotating inside.

Even plastic portions of this toy are velvety smooth and lovely to touch. The colors are vibrant and cheerful. I chose the pink Budding Bliss and it is the only pink toy in my collection! The colors are just so amazing and feminine that I couldn't resist.

The rose petals I expected to be hard and perhaps uncomfortable, in reality they are made from the same soft silicone as the rest of the shaft. They are velvety soft while remaining firm. They transmit the vibrations intensely and if the rose was positioned just a wee bit better it would have been amazing. As it was I was only able to feel the vibrations from the side of the rose, ironically the area of least vibration.

This toy has a very subtle odor reminiscent of a new shower curtain, but the high end type not the cheap variety. You have to get very up close and personal with the toy to smell anything and it doesn't leave any sort of scent on your lady parts or hands. There is no discernible taste to the toy.

This is high quality silicone which means it isn't especially porous and receives the highest safety rating here at EF.

Design / Shape / Size

The design of this toy is just short of amazing, it almost works perfectly. The shaft is just the right girth (4 3/4 inches in circumference)to powerfully stimulate but alas not the right length (4 1/2 inches insertable). It's just about an inch too short to reach my G spot fully though it does feel good regardless. The rotations are easily felt and very strong. They are also very LOUD and there is a strange grinding sound is the muscles of the vagina clamp around the toy too vigorously. When this happens I didn't notice the motor straining but the grinding is rather disconcerting.

The rose portion is awkwardly placed and shaped. The egg bulges outward and the rose is on top of a short stem. It is curved slightly but again, not quite enough to allow the textures of the rose to be felt by my clitoris. The vibrations are most powerfully felt on the tips of the petals so the whole area is sort of wasted. I can see what the manufacturer intended, that the rose would sit just under the clit and allow vibrations to be felt in the whole area but for some reason I couldn't manage to position the vibe or the rose to achieve this sensation despite many tries.

The Budding Bliss should be suitable for just about any user regardless of their experience as it's not terribly long, girthy and it is very smooth textured.

This isn't a very discreet toy, it looks exactly like what it is: a very pretty, feminine sex toy. It is very elegant looking though so I doubt it's going to get many comments if it's in your luggage at the airport. In my experience it's the odd looking or BDSM toys that get the most raised eyebrows or comments.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The controls on the Budding Bliss are located on the handle of the toy. They consist of two dials that can be operated with a thumb. They are stiff enough that they won't change speed or power with a bump during play but will turn easily with direct pressure. I didn't notice any loss of power if the rotation and vibration were on at the same time which was a pleasant surprise.

The vibrations are concentrated in the petals of the rose and surprisingly are muted to the sides which means if you can't get the direct stimulation from the petals and you need heavy vibrations this is going to be more frustrating than exciting. If you prefer muted, light vibration this will be amazing. The rotations are full, wide and easily felt when inserted.

I don't know if I mentioned it but this toy is LOUD! It can still be heard through a closed door, under covers AND a pillow after being inserted. This was on high rotation as well as highest setting vibration. If you have a need for secrecy or extreme discretion this probably won't work for you. I found it to be a bit distractingly loud which is odd for me since all of the people who live in my house are aware I have toys and that they can be loud.

The Budding Bliss is rated as splash proof but not totally waterproof. It didn't take on water when I washed it in the sink both before and after use but the silicone portion is a sleeve that can be rolled up slightly leading me to question whether with immersion water may leak into areas it shouldn't be. I don't recommend this toy be used in a bath tub, pool, or hot tub. It could probably handle a quick shower but given the noise level it won't be a quick, stealthy shower.

Care and Maintenance

This is a 100% silicone and hard plastic toy which makes caring for it very easy. A wash in warm water and soap is all it really needs because it is non-porous. I recommend using the same soap that you use on your sensitive areas to be sure that you won't be irritated by any residue possibly left over on your toy. The rose petals take some extra care as they can collect lube and body fluids. I have found a clean toothbrush or a fingernail brush works perfectly. You can use a good commercial toy cleaner or wipe but eventually you will have to pay some extra attention to the rose petals.

I store the toy in an Eden Fantasys toy bag and it works perfectly. The toy is smooth silicone and can still pick up lint but the toy bag keeps is clean. It also allows me to store the battery tray, with batteries, inside the bag along side the toy without marring the finish of the silicone. This is great because it doesn't leave me scrambling for batteries in the heat of the moment. Silicone can interact with other silicone toys so storing them in their own bag or little box keeps them safe. You could also use an old mismatched, clean tube sock.

This toy is most compatible with water based lubes but if you are dead set on using a silicone or oil based lube do a patch test on an inconspicuous area before you slather it on.

The toy is packaged in a light weight plastic box. It is minimalistic and recyclable but surprising for a toy that is so high priced. I honestly expected more but maybe that's because I am spoiled by Lelo, JimmyJane and Evolved Novelties. The plastic didn't hold up to my rough handling when I opened it so it wasn't able to be used to store the toy.
There were some basic instruction printed on a paper insert but they weren't very informative or comprehensive.

Personal comments

When I saw this toy I had to have it, I am still glad I went ahead and bought it despite the problems I had with the rose. I love the rotation of the shaft and have found that if I turn the toy to the side and use another stimulator on my clit it is an amazing experience. For someone whose body is built for this toy (or vice versa) this will be a lovely new friend. Even though it doesn't work all that well for me as a rabbit vibe it is still so beautiful that I am really torn! I want to say it's not worth the price but the real truth is, I'd buy it again even knowing that it won't *quite* work for my body. The rotational shaft is so worth it!

I can't fault the craftsmanship of the toy and my only regret is that it is so difficult for it to work as a rabbit for me. It is still a luxury toy and will make a wonderful toy for the right person.
Follow-up commentary
While this vibrator hasn't yet been able to be the hands free or dual stimulation toy of my dreams, I still like its rotating shaft well enough. It hasn't been demoted to the dresser drawer with the other vibes that are just 'Meh'. The problem is I love the look of this toy, and I really love the strength of the rotation but I don't like that the rosebud doesn't hit my clitoris properly. It is either just slightly painful or I have to twist around to place it so that I just barely feel any vibration on my clitoris. Usually I just enjoy the rotation of the shaft and use a clitoral vibe to stimulate the area properly. Add to the problems with hitting all the right spots the fact that this is a LOUD toy and it doesn't get used often but it does still get used.
It's just to damn pretty for me to let it go!
