Gourmand fragrances are scents that conjure up delicious aromas due to edible notes such as chocolate, candy, espresso, and honey to name just a few. Now I don’t know about you, but I want more sophistication to a gourmand fragrance instead of just smelling like a walking human form of food. A tendency toward overdoing that delectable “foodie” sweetness in this type of fragrance is something I have noticed. However, Floral Street does justice to this fragrance family with their Ylang Ylang Espresso that gives it incredible layers of intricate beauty instead of dominating the perfume with “foodie” notes. Whether you’re still looking for the perfect new perfume for yourself or those on your holiday gift list, then let me clue you into the astounding beauty this vegan unisex fragrance has to offer.

Ylang Ylang Espresso opens with a lively influx of juicy freshness from rose and tangerine before a bolder and unexpected note of pepper moves in. You can feel that restless rebel streak beneath the surface like it is waiting to surprise with its antics until it warms further to make you aware of its subtle underlying smokiness.
By the time this fragrance warms in the heart with ylang ylang, jasmine and rose, this perfume becomes romantic. It flirts with you and displays an unbelievable amount of confidence in its ability to tempt you with such smooth finesse due to creamy notes of whipped cream, cocoa, espresso, and guaiac wood that is in its base.
Trust me on this, you won’t be able to resist Ylang Ylang Espresso from Floral Street because it is so exquisite and unique in how those notes in this gourmand fragrance come together. My advice is if you haven’t tried this perfume yet, you definitely need to visit the company’s website. The price range starts at $32 for 0.34 oz., $84 for 1.7 oz. to $130 for the 3.4 oz. eau de parfum.
