Floral Street expands Van Gogh Museum partnership with home fragrance collections

In 2021, the collaboration between British “clean” fragrance brand Floral Street and the internationally renowned Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, introduced vibrant vegan fragrance Sunflower Pop to the world. Following its success, the partnership is extending, in summer 2022, into two ethical home fragrance collections.

Once again inspired by Van Gogh’s iconic Sunflowers (1889), and also by his Almond Blossom (1890), Floral Street and the Van Gogh Museum have endeavoured to capture the mood and emotion of these renowned masterworks through the sensory experience of home fragrance.

“So many loved our bright and happy Sunflower Pop fragrance, that they wanted their homes to smell like it too,” says Michelle Feeney, Floral Street’s founder. “But this time we have also been inspired by Van Gogh’s Almond Blossom, creating two different facets of his masterworks. Van Gogh brought the plants to life visually and we are bringing them to life in our clean fragrances.”

Bursting with optimism, the new Sunflower Pop home collection evokes the warmth of Provence, while the serene Sweet Almond Blossom range boasts a fresh aroma reminiscent of the first buds of spring, bringing a tranquil and mellow ambiance to the home.

Ian Wickham, director at Licensing Link Europe – which represents the Van Gogh Museum in the UK and Ireland – is excited to see the home fragrance collections’ impact at retail. “This extension to the Floral Street range has been as carefully planned, researched and considered as the launch of our Sunflower Pop fragrance, so we are all hugely excited to see the reaction when the range goes live,” he says. “The team have done an incredible job.”

The collections include vegan wax candles made from sustainably sourced rapeseed and coconut oil, with unbleached cotton wicks; naturally derived vegan oil diffusers; 100% plastic-free scented reeds and non-toxic, alcohol-free room fragrances, with products presented in exclusively designed FSC certified recyclable packaging.

Marijn Veraart, Licensing Manager at the Van Gogh Museum, says:  “We’re so proud of this range extension to the already incredibly successful Sunflower Pop parfum. Moving into home fragrances was the obvious next step and we are all hugely excited by these new developments. A huge thank you to an amazing team who have worked so hard to make this a reality.”




Floral Street channels Vincent Van Gogh’s Sunflowers in first of its kind fragrance partnership

The independent, sustainable British Brand, Floral Street has struck up a collaboration with the internationally revered Van Gogh Museum in a deal that will see fine art meet fine fragrance for the first time.

Under the partnership, Floral Street has developed a new fragrance that channels the Dutch artist’s passion for the natural world and nature, ‘bringing to life the optimism of one of the world’s most famous masterworks in both scent and floral design,’ taking on the fragrance and artistic appeal of Van Gogh’s Sunflowers.

Described as a fruity-citrus fragrance, the new launch is both a vegan and cruelty free, luxury eau de parfum that ‘arrives bursting with rays of optimism,’ as intentioned by its creator, the master perfumer, Jerȏme Epinette.

Epinette is known for his mastery of sustainable natural raw materials, which are traceable from source to scent.

“The idea was to capture the vibrance and beauty of the South of France, while also somehow painting the passage of the day. I started with an impactful top where a burst of morning sun comes alive in the citrus and fruits, while the heart brings the heat of the afternoon with a rich and colourful floralcy,” said Epinette. “The back then carries us into early evening with a poppy sweetness and a touch of unexpected warmth that makes it fun, yet truly luxurious.”

Ian Wickham of Licensing Link Europe, said: “This is the first product to launch within the Floral Street range of personal and home fragrances and we are super excited by the reaction the product is getting from retailers around the world.

“What Floral Street has delivered is a superb example of an incredible quality product created through a thorough understanding of the story behind Sunflowers and then delivered in a completely sustainable way – even the packaging cartons that hold the bottle are fully biodegradable and can be reused as seed planters once finished with.”

Among the ingredients used in the fragrance is natural bergamont fro Calabria in Italy to provide a fresh, peppery herbaceous scent “that is lightly sweet and brings a unique sparkle to this citrus composition,” as well as mandarin which brings a bright, summery hue to the fragrance.

The perfume also features a warm honey accord – a nature identical, vegan synthetic blend created to mimic the aroma of fresh honey, and a Bellini accord – described as “a fantasy note that brings an effervescent ‘pop’ to the perfume.”

The new Sunflower Pop fragrance is available from August 1st, 2021, on www.floralstreet.com, in the Van Gogh Museum and retailers worldwide.
