If you are looking for a way to keep the summer vibe alive, you might want to try Floral Street’s latest vegan perfume, Sweet Almond Blossom. This fragrance is a fruity-floral gourmand that will transport you to a dreamy world of almond trees in full bloom. In this review, I will share my experience with this captivating scent and why I think it is worth trying.

Sweet Almond Blossom was inspired by Van Gogh’s 1890 masterpiece, Almond Blossom, which depicts the branches of an almond tree against a blue sky. The painting was a gift from the artist to his brother and sister-in-law, who had just welcomed their son, Vincent Willem. The almond tree symbolizes new life and hope, as it is one of the first trees to blossom in early spring.
The same idea of celebrating new beginnings and joy is reflected in the fragrance, which was created by master perfumer Jerome Epinette and Floral Street founder Michelle Feeney. They wanted to create a scent that evokes the sensory feeling of being surrounded by almond blossoms and fresh fruits.
Sweet Almond Blossom is a soft and romantic perfume that opens with juicy notes of pink pomelo, passion fruit and bright mandarin. It is a cheerful and bubbly introduction that makes you feel like you are walking in a sunny orchard.
As it warms in the heart, the fragrance mingles with the sweet notes of apple blossoms that shower the wearer with such graceful beauty. You can almost feel yourself lingering where those almond trees stand, heavy with blossoms in full bloom adorn the green landscape.
As it winds down and dries in the base, the notes further entice you with a fresh green herbal quality from a hint of green matcha tea that develops and layers exquisitely with a delectable nutty creaminess from vanilla accords and tonka beans before seducing with woody sandalwood.
It is a long-lasting perfume that has a moderate sillage. It is not overpowering or cloying, but it is noticeable enough to draw compliments. It is suitable for any occasion, but especially for daytime wear or casual outings. It is also a versatile perfume that can be worn all year round, but especially in spring and summer.
This eau de parfum spray retails for $33 (0.33 fl. oz.), the 1.7 fl. oz. ($89) and the 3.4 fl.oz. ($140). You can buy it online from the official website of Floral Street or from other authorized retailers. The perfume comes in a beautiful bottle that resembles an almond blossom, with a colorful label that features Van Gogh’s painting. It also comes in a recyclable cardboard box that has a floral pattern.
The fragrance is a lovely vegan perfume that captures the essence of summer in a bottle. It is a fruity-floral gourmand that is memorable as it casts its haunting spell. It is also a healthy fragrance that uses responsibly sourced ingredients and 20% perfume oil. If you are looking for a new perfume to try, I highly recommend Sweet Almond Blossom by Floral Street. It will make you feel happy and beautiful every time you wear it. Check it out!
