Sample eight fragrance creations from Floral Street, delivering modern floral scents with a twist.
You would have guessed from the name – Floral Street specialise in floral fragrances. But don’t expect tame wallflower type perfumes from the brand, their creations have distinct personalities.
The brand recently entered the Australian market, and I was very eager to sample their offerings. Luckily, they had a Discovery Set, which came with 8 sample vials of their fragrances – Wonderland Peony, Neon Rose,Wild Vanilla Orchid, Iris Goddess, Chypre Sublime, Black Lotus, Ylang Ylang Espresso, and London Poppy. This was the perfect way to wear and try different scents, without investing in a full sized bottle.
I find most of their perfumes fall under either the Woody type (Wonderland Peony, Wild Vanilla Orchid), or Musky (Iris Goddess, Chypre Sublime, Ylang Ylang Espresso, Black Lotus). London Poppy was a Citrus floral.The only straight-up floral from the set was Neon Rose.
Wonderland Peony,Wild Vanilla Orchid:
I find both these perfumes to be open quite sweet. Then the sweetness is subdued by the woody notes. Hence, rather than feeling sickly sweet, the overall balance is of the fragrance is quite creamy and heady.
Iris Goddess, Chypre Sublime, Ylang Ylang Espresso, Black Lotus:
These are the more seductive and confident creations from the brand. Some are almost borderline explosive, especially Iris Goddess. Alight spray of this will do. If you love vibrant and bold scents, these are worth trying out.
This one is a soft citrus floral. It has a fresh and bright feeling. Supposedly, it’s inspired by the urban mood of London – on a day when the sun shines through the city.
Neon Rose is a very pretty, everyday fragrance. Perfect for a conservative work environment, or to match a laid back weekend outfit.
