Floral Street Chypre Sublime is my latest chypre floral perfume obsession. This haunting vegan fragrance was created in 2017 by perfumer, Jerome Epinette for Floral Street. If you are a fan of floral fragrances with woody and spicy notes that is still fresh and an ideal elegant perfume to wear in winter, then Floral Street Chypre Sublime perfume is something you should gift yourself and other fragrance lovers this holiday season.

What you will immediately notice is how these beautiful perfume notes in the Floral Street Chypre Sublime play out and merge as they meet the warmth of your skin to mesmerize you with the magical and romantic hold it can exert upon your senses. The opening notes are geranium, incense and pink pepper. You may have expected the incense to lend a heavier spicy presence to this scent. However, you will find that the pink pepper does wonders to add a sultry smokiness to the incense for this more modern and lighter take on a spicy floral feel.
The heart notes only help add to the allure of the Floral Street Chypre Sublime. At this stage, it deepens and blooms with the help of damask rose, patchouli and violet that give it such floral richness as it blends with the spicier opening notes. Yet, the violet also brightens and adds another layer of sophistication to the rose and patchouli that is gorgeous and unexpected. You can’t help sniffing your arm over and over again as those notes, especially a different sort of rose that surfaces from the blend emerges.
In the base, this perfume has notes of olibanum, labdanum and benzoin. The combination of these resins from this dry down adds to its earthy warmth that is so subtly sexy.
Not only is this a memorable woody floral perfume in how this chypre was done, but it is one that has wonderful staying power due to its 20% oil concentration. If this is not enough to convince you, this scent is also a healthier fragrance without synthetic dyes, pthalates, parabens, mineral oil, petrolatum, or paraffins that may pollute your body with an array of what may be questionable chemicals.
Trust me, but Floral Street Chypre Sublime perfume is a winner if you want my honest opinion. My advice if shopping for a new fragrance is to visit the company’s website and look into this perfume or their Iris Goddess, another woody floral perfume that I adore. The price ranges from $28 for the 0.34 oz., $78 for the 1.7 oz. and $129 for the 3.4 oz.
