I must admit that I don’t feel completely dressed until wearing perfume. Be that as it may, I always feel more comfortable with a natural, vegan perfume such as the ones from Floral Street that I can layer directly on my skin instead of spraying on my bra, panties or slip. When this London brand contacted me about trying their latest mood-provoking perfume with Arizona Bloom as well as their Discovery Kit, I was glad to experience Floral Street and share my thoughts through this review.

Arizona Bloom was developed by perfumer, Jérôme Epinette under the creative direction of Floral Street founder, Michelle Feeney. This Oriental floral fragrance is another stunning vision to join her beautiful floral inspired garden of the line of Floral Street healthier perfume.
Imagine the brightness of the sky and the warmth of the hot sun against your skin. Your senses are tuned to the arid, but sweet air. This Floral Street perfume with the addition of Arizona Bloom will catapult you to the desert immediately as it opens with its coconut and black pepper. You gaze around but all you see are flowering desert plants like prickly pear cacti with only hummingbirds and tumbleweeds for company in this magnificent landscape of colors and textures. The sensation is almost overwhelming as it fills your heart with such joy in the undisturbed natural beauty of it all.
It is then when you pick up the heart notes of jasmine petals and fig leaves as this fragrance continues to warm, leaving you wanting to explore more. At this stage, Arizona Bloom perfume dares you to venture further despite the dangers that may be lurking behind that desolate floral and fauna. The feeling is intriguing in how it appeals to take hold of you as these ingredients blend together.
As this fragrance dries down in the base, you also notice the hypnotic spell it weaves with its oak moss, salted musks, amber and cashmere woods help to make you feel serenely at peace with yourself and more grounded. For a moment, Arizona Bloom made you feel a beautiful part of that perfect desert landscape as if you were a natural part of it that you can’t look away from.
I also have to tell you that this Floral Street perfume had a great longevity. The reason could be that their perfumes have a 20% oil concentrate.
Arizona Bloom can be found at Sephora. This 1.7 fl. oz. eau de parfum retails for $78 and the smaller 0.33/10ml perfume spray can be had for $28. Either sex would love to wear this one. You have my word on that.
Floral Street also sent along one of their Discovery Kits of mini perfume spray vials. Each tube is a 1.5ml sized spray bottle for a total of eight of their memorable vegan floral perfumes. The particular fragrances included the following: London Poppy, Wonderland Peony, Neon Rose, Wild Vanilla Orchid, Iris Goddess, Chypre Sublime, Black Lotus and Ylang Ylang Espresso. You can find this set also at Sephora for $19. Anyone that is crazy about floral perfumes would love to get this set to find the perfect one that appeals most to them before committing to a bigger bottle.
Something else that you have to love about Floral Street is their amazing commitment to saving the planet that extends to their biodegradable packing. This is a company that takes the green cause seriously.
Though this was my first experience with Floral Street perfume for this review, it certainly will not be my last. My advice is check Arizona Bloom and the Discovery Kit on Sephora for a healthier way to still wear perfume, especially for those that are sensitive.
