Floral Street are a brand I’ve seen featured all over social media, but I’ve never had the chance to try any of their fragrances. I’ve only ever read glowing reviews but I didn’t want to make an order for a fragrance without ever trying it, which is why when I saw the beautiful Floral Street The Discovery Set, I thought it would be the perfect introduction to the brand and I couldn’t wait to feature it on my blog.
Floral Street was founded by Michelle Feeney, and her experience and story really is interesting. Floral Street are a contemporary new London based brand, and I love that the inspiration behind the brand. Michelle’s 13 year old daughter being a massive Lush fan, and then she acknowledged Jo Malone on the other end of the spectrum with a much more grown up vibe. Michelle decided she wanted to create something for the middle market, and that’s where Floral Street was created.
“Floral Street a brand built on the streets of London. A city where women are proud to be themselves and proud to represent their culture. Floral Street is about breaking with tradition. It’s about peeling back the curtain of the secret world of fragrance. It’s about ease, modernity and joy.”
Floral Street The Discovery Set
Buying fragrance online can be a risky decision regardless of the brand or price bracket. Sure you can read notes and look at sites like Fragrantica to gauge whether the fragrance would be your kind of thing, but especially when trying to buy gifts, it’s difficult to buy a fragranced product without knowing a person’s likes or dislikes. The Floral Street The Discovery Set is a fantastic gift idea, and is just £14 yet it’s worth £24.
The Floral Street The Discovery Set contains eight x 1.5ml vials of their fragrances; London Poppy, Wonderland Peony, Neon Rose, Wild Vanilla Orchid, Iris Goddess, Chypre Sublime, Black Lotus and Ylang Ylang Espresso. The packaging is beautiful, with the prettiest flower head design and each of the vials have different coloured backgrounds to signify the different Floral Street fragrances.
If you’ve never tried Floral Street fragrances before, this set is perfect for you never mind as a gift. I had no idea if I’d like the Floral Street scents, so I felt like this set was ideal allowing me to try their different scents to decide which are my favourite and I couldn’t wait to try them. It’s been so much fun being able to try each individual scent, and I love how well they layer too. My absolute favourites have to be Wild Vanilla Orchid, Black Lotus, Ylang Ylang Espresso and Neon Rose, but they’re all incredible and unlike any other scents I’ve tried.
Floral Street Wild Vanilla Orchid Christmas Bauble £24
I’m such a big fan of beauty Christmas baubles. They’re such a nice gift option as they’re always presented so beautifully, but they also allow you to try smaller sizes of products before purchasing the full size. The Floral Street Christmas Baubles are all very pretty, and there’s a bauble for all eight of the different Floral Street fragrances. Each of the eight baubles are £24 and contain a 10ml spray bottle of the fragrance, packaged within an almost a gemstone shaped hanging decoration, with an elastic loop so you can hang it from your Christmas tree should you wish to.
From the eight scents on offer, I chose the Wild Vanilla Orchid version of the Christmas Bauble as I know I love anything vanilla based, but the idea of Wild Vanilla Orchid really appealed to me. You can even purchase a set containing all eight ornaments which would be the dream Christmas gift, but individually they’re still very lovely. It has such a beautiful sweet, floral scent that lasts so well on the skin and it’s pretty much all I’ve worn since I got it as it’s so lovely.
So how do Floral Street describe their Wild Vanilla Orchid scent?
“It’s vanilla, but not as you know it. A raw confection of creamy vanilla beans, blossom, cassis, and citrus, dressed in just-plucked jasmine. Offsetting the just-baked sweetness; bamboo and sandalwood linger underneath.”
Key ingredients: Vanilla Bean, Cashmeran, Ambroxan, Cassis, Lemon, Vanilla Blossom, Bamboo, Jasmine, Sandalwood, Patchouli Fraction, Red Orchid.
