Flower Beauty Fragrance Trio Holiday Set Review : Eau de Parfum Rollerball / Roll-On in Cherished, Radiant, and Sultry

I saw this set at Walmart and I'm pretty sure it was out last year too, but I never got to try these scents and I love Flower Beauty, so I picked it up. So here are my thoughts...

Sultry -
  • "A sensual and alluring oriental floral featuring Purple Plum, Night Blooming Jasmine and Patchouli
  • Each FLOWER fragrance contains the FLOWER Heart accord which is a blossoming bouquet of Pink Pepper, Cabbage Rose and Peony
  • Wear alone or combine throughout the day with CHERISHED and RADIANT so your fragrance evolves with you.
  • A scent for your every mood." - Flower Beauty Website
Upon first sniff, this had a strong alcohol scent to it. Not a fan. But once I applied it and it settled down for a few minutes, it wasn't a bad fragrance and I think I like it. It has more depth than the other two. You can smell the patchouli (a scent I personally like), but the plum scent is more powerful to me.

Radiant -
  • "A striking and confident sparkling floral featuring Dewy Greens, Magnolia and Pink Amber." - Flower Beauty Website
Not a fan of this one. This is a light scent but it smells a little too floral and old-lady-like for me.

Cherished -
  • "A comforting and nuzzly powdery floral featuring Lily of the Valley, Tahitian Vanilla and Creamy Sandalwood." - Flower Beauty Website
When I brought these home and smelled each one, this is the one that stood out to me. This one is my favorite. I love Vanilla though, it's easily my all-time favorite scent. I would put it right in between the two others as far as light/heavy. For some reason it's reminding me of this CK One knock off I owned in middle school. Ha.

I do like the packaging. It doesn't feel cheap. It's glass, not plastic. I like the gradient color and the fact that each fragrance is easily identified by color and you won't mix them up. You can grab the one you want without having to read it. The name however, is written in a good sized font if you want to go that route. It feels just as nice as any other roller ball perfume. The roller ball itself is actually my favorite part. I find that some perfume roller balls don't roll very well and you have to swirl it around on your skin in five circles to get any fragrance to come out. That is not the case with these, they just take one or two swirls and you're good to go.


Overall, I don't find them to be long lasting fragrances and they just smell cheap. Each roller ball ends up costing less than $5 a pop, so perhaps I'm asking too much of these. But they don't have real depth that lingers and I was definitely underwhelmed by these, even Cherish, a scent I liked. I honestly can only smell them for about two hours after application (and that's if I'm making a point to sniff them). I have body sprays that last longer than that.

I'll probably just keep them in my purse just in case I feel like wearing a little bit of something one day. I won't be repurchasing or buying the full size of any of them though.

The website does describe them as best used one after the other for all day fragrance. They suggest wearing Cherished in the morning, Radiant mid-day, and Sultry for the evening. If you put it that way, I guess it makes sense that the scents don't linger very long. However, I think the idea of carrying multiple fragrances for different times of day sounds unreasonable. I personally, hardly ever reapply my fragrance anyway.

They might be okay for a younger audience that just wants to try perfume. You can't really go overboard with them because they lose their scent quickly. I wouldn't recommend it for any real fragrance lovers out there.

Thanks for reading!
