If you’re a fragrance fanatic like I am, you’ve probably already heard of Floral Street, but for those that aren’t completely obsessed with scent, I’ll give you a bit of background info on the brand. London based Floral Street was founded in late 2017, and has gradually starting to become more mainstream (now available in Feelunique, John Lewis and QVC)
Of course, the brand instantly stands out from the crowd due to its distinctive floral bottles, which I absolutely love. And it’s also great to know that founder, Michelle Feeney, has a wealth of experience behind her in the beauty industry. I won’t list her accomplishments here because we’ll be here all day, but what I will say is that this brand is clearly built by someone that knows what their doing. Michelle’s vision is inspired by British women, and has sustainability and eco-responsibility at its core –
“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.”
Wild Vanilla Orchid EDP apart from having a stunning bottle, is a gorgeously bold and seductive vanilla scent. Described as vanilla, but not as you know it, Wild Vanilla Orchid is perfect for evening, it’s is an exotic night blooming flower – dark, sultry and sweet, but not overly heavy. The fragrance opens with juicy notes of cassis and lemon, giving way to a rich floral heart of vanilla blossom, red orchid and jasmine. The dry down leaves a trail of creamy vanilla beans, mingled with notes of warming sandalwood, patchouli and bamboo.
- Top Notes: Cassis and Lemon
- Heart Notes: Vanilla Blossom, Red Orchid and Jasmine
- Base Notes: Vanilla Beans, Sandalwood, Patchouli Fraction and Bamboo
Though this is more of an evening scent, it doesn’t give you that heady, intoxicating feeling that some more intense fragrances have. Wild Vanilla Orchid is no doubt an easy to wear fragrance, akin to the likes of Lancome’s La Vie Est Belle and Viktor & Rolf’s Flowerbomb, it gives the wearer an air of confidence and sensuality, but with a modern twist.
