Floral Street has such a knack of bringing floral beauty to life judging from their amazing vegan perfumes that I tried. Unlike what you may expect with a name liked Floral Street Wild Vanilla Orchid perfume, this one is warm and cozy. With its spices to floral notes, I consider this one more on the order of a slightly sweet gourmand than your basic floral fragrance. The result of this perfume created in 2017 by perfumer, Jerome Epinette, is a fabulous crisper gourmand floral scent that any perfumista would love to find among their holiday gifts.

Floral Street Wild Vanilla Orchid perfume opens with notes of vanilla, cassis and citrus. Somehow, these beginning notes with sweet vanilla and that tangy tartness of blackcurrant from the cassis prevent that syrup like sweetness that some gourmand fragrances may display. In its place, more of an aromatic tartness to this fragrance arises to liven up that sweetness further with added brightness from citrus.
As the Floral Street Wild Vanilla Orchid perfume further warms in the heart, you can detect the influx of more floral notes from flowers and jasmine. However, that floral sweetness when met with the green bamboo notes serves to stabilize this perfume from being too sweet again like a regular gourmand fragrance. What happens is this beautiful perfume undergoes a change and becomes crisper, yet still sweet and so inviting in its appeal.
The real magic to this Wild Vanilla Orchid Floral Street perfume occurs in the base as this fragrance dries down. Instead of a heavy concentration of vanilla and orchid, it weaves a seductive spell as it evolves due to its notes of sandalwood and patchouli to accomplish the task.
How glorious this perfume may smell is one thing, but due to its 20% oil concentration in a formula it also has a great longevity. Another important consideration about Floral Street is the step that they take to formulate perfumes that won’t subject your body to synthetic dyes, pthalates, parabens, mineral oil, petrolatum, paraffins, or other less than healthy chemicals that could enter your blood stream.
Trust me, but if you are searching for a new fragrance for yourself or for holiday gifting for someone, the Floral Street Wild Vanilla Orchid perfume is lovely and definitely one that you’ll want its softness caressing you, especially through cold weather at this time of year.
