A clean perfume brand inspired by urban British women, Floral Street is modern, energetic and vibrant. The flower-powered fragrance line was made with a younger audience in mind and are vegan, cruelty free and sustainably sourced. Floral Street uses synthetics to perform like a fine fragrance and contains a concentration of 20% perfume oils for better longevity and projection. As you can guess, Floral Street perfumes are each floral-focused and, for the most part, feminine. Some scents lean too young and some too mature for me, but I did find some favorites in the Floral Street line! So toss aside your Chanel No 5 and read on for my Floral Street perfume review.
Wild Vanilla Orchid
Wild Vanilla Orchid is a sweet vanilla patchouli fragrance and my second favorite in the Floral Street line (the first being Arizona Bloom which is for the warmer months). It has top notes of cassis, citrus and vanilla, heart notes of bamboo and jasmine and base notes of Sandalwood, patchouli, orchid and vanilla bean. The opening of the perfume begins with a green and fruity blast. The white florals unfold and waft through the vanilla while the warmth of sandalwood lurks underneath. I find Wild Vanilla Orchid to be sweet yet not overly cloying, a tad powdery, a smidge green, and overall a beautiful perfume for vanilla lovers to try.
Notes: Vanilla Bean, Cashmeran, Ambroxan, Cassis, Lemon, Vanilla Blossom, Bamboo, Jasmine, Sandalwood, Patchouli
Wonderland Peony is a bit too young and sweet for my taste, but I can see why this perfume appeals to so many women. You’ve got the brightness and juiciness of berry notes like Blackcurrant, Pink Berries and Pink Guava and the sweetness of violet combined with peony. The result, a very sweet and girly fruity floral scent. If you enjoy Skylar perfumes you’ll probably enjoy Floral Street Wonderland Peony.
Notes: Blackcurrant, Pink Pepper, Sicilian Lemon, Pink Berries, Pink Guava, Violet, Peony Accord
Black Lotus is a polarizing scent because it’s quite dark and leathery. The opening is spicy, juicy and bright with a strong hit of pepper and something berry-like. It dries down to a resinous rose. This is a dark and oriental rose perfume that might lean too masculine for some women and too mature for others. I didn’t mind the masculine aspects of this perfume, but I did find it too mature for my taste.
Notes: Jasmine, Saffron, Papyrus, Black Cherry, Red Peppercorn, Saffron, Centifolia Rose, Black Violet Accord,
Neon in the name is a bit misleading as there’s nothing loud or obnoxious about Neon Rose. The opening of the perfume is quite soapy, and I still detect a hint of soapiness in the dry down. Neon Rose is a girly and young fruity floral scent with a warm amber undercurrent. Pleasant perfume but doesn’t particularly stand out to me.
Notes: Pear, Galbanum, Bergamot, Cassis Kir, Apple Blossom, Sichuan Pepper, Cyclamen, Juniper Berry, Jasmine
Electric Rhubarb didn’t particularly stand out to me either. I smell fruity white floral with a tinge of spicy. There’s a hint of saline but it doesn’t remind me of an aquatic perfume.
Notes: English Rhubarb, Australian Sandalwood, Island Gardenia, Frangipani, Jasmine Sambac
Arizona Bloom is a fantastic summer perfume. If you want a really good, sophisticated island floral scent, it’s Arizona Bloom. This is a fresh, clean, creamy and grown floral coconut scent that wears like a second skin.
Notes: Balinese Coconut, Madagascan Black Pepper, Oak Moss, Salted Musks, Jasmine Petals, Fig leaves
Chypre Sublime is my least favorite Floral Street perfume. Chypres are one of the main perfume categories and are warm and dry scents usually with labdanum and oakmoss notes. Chypre Sublime is much too heady and old-fashioned for me. It reminds me of potpourri.
Notes: Pink Pepper, Wild geranium, Damask Rose Absolute, Midnight Violets, Patchouli, Labdanum, Benzoin, Olibanum
Ylang Ylang Espresso
I don’t know whether to like or dislike Floral Street’s floral coffee perfume Ylang Ylang Espresso. It’s such an odd combination, a cup of coffee on a bed of flowers? I feel like I need to be in a particular mood to have this on me all day and can’t see it as an everyday perfume.
Notes: Tangerine, Sichuan Pepper, Fresh Rose, Jasmine, Tiramisu Accord, Patchouli, Ylang
