5 stars out of 5

The Floral Street Discovery Set ($19) arrives with all eight of the house’s fragrances tucked into little 0.05 oz mists that allow you to try these lovely scents before you buy them. This British brand’s entire fragrance collection is now being sold at Sephora.com much to my delight. Made up of 20% perfume oil the scents are quite long lasting, lovely, and unique.

I don’t really migrate to flower blends personally but I have a very deep love and appreciation for the Nest Fragrance Collection and I do think Floral Street is a pretty similiar house of fragrances. If you like Nest, you’ll most definitely love Floral Street.

One thing to take note of is that Nest fragrances sometimes lean towards being sweet florals where as Floral Street relies heavily on other notes that aren’t as sweet in their fragrance collection. These are very complex and interesting floral perfumes. The also happen to be vegan and sustainably sourced.

The scents you’ll receive are:
London Poppy, Wonderland Peony, Neon Rose, Wild Vanilla Orchid, Iris Goddess, Chypre Sublime, Black Lotus, and Ylang Ylang Espresso

I can’t even begin to describe how complex and unique these fragrances are. If you love florals you’ll adore these. Some are botanical mixes, others are more complex chypre blends, and others earthy florals.

There’s Black Lotus that has a strong leather-y note which reminds me of just turned earth on a rainy day in a garden. And my favorite, Ylang Ylang Espresso this is like walking into Starbucks holding a bouquet of flowers! There’s a fresh brewed coffee note with heavy cream at the opening as it dries down rose and jasmine come out to play! It’s a very interesting blend! If you want to play it a little more carefully perhaps Wild Vanilla Orchid is for you with its soft, creamy vanilla notes mixed with the citrus, cassis, and jasmine.

I find the scents very strong and they seem to wear quite long. I didn’t feel like my skin swallowed these up in seconds. I got a nice few hours wear and even after several hours the scent lingered on!

I can go on and on but I think you need to experience the Floral Street Discovery Set for yourself. This is very well worth picking up if you’re a fan of niche fragrances, florals, and complex perfume blends! I enjoyed it immensely and it made me want a few larger bottles that I’ll add to my next Sephora haul.

Floral Street Discovery Set is available now!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Huh! I was just looking at this, well, the Wild Orchid one. As you know, I don’t wear perfume, but the flowers caught my eye and the note descriptions intrigued me. Plus, it’s an eco-conscious brand, so plus to that!

      Try the discovery set and if you love some of them you can grab a full bottle during the beauty insider holiday event ;-D

    I just got mine yesterday and I love it! Your are so right-on about the complexity of the scents. Neon Rose is such a beautiful rose scent; I am debating purchasing a full-size before the sale ends.

      they are truly gorgeous blends! You can always wait until the Holiday Insider Event 😀

        Are they doing the holiday insider event this year? I thought maybe the summer sale replaced it. It’d be awesome to get another sale because why not? I always find something to buy with the discount.
