'Extending the success of our vibrant and expressive Sunflower Pop, inspired by Van Gogh’s iconic 'Sunflowers', we have also been moved by his 'Almond Blossom' masterpiece.
Creating two different facets of his masterworks where Van Gogh brought the plants to life visually and we have brought them to life in our clean home fragrances.'
Vincent wrote a series of letters to his brother Theo when he was living in South East London in the early 1870s. The mailing address he gave to Theo was care of an office in Covent Garden that’s literally around the corner from the Floral Street flagship store!
Vincent van Gogh to his brother Theo, 30th April 1874
It’s absolutely beautiful here (even though it’s in the city). There are lilacs and hawthorns and laburnums blossoming in all the gardens, and the chestnut trees are magnificent.. If one truly loves nature one finds beauty everywhere. Yet I sometimes yearn so much for Holland, and especially Helvoirt.. I’m doing a lot of gardening and have sown sweet peas, poppies and reseda, now we just have to wait and see what comes of it. I enjoy the walk from home to the office and in the evening from the office back home. It takes about three-quarters of an hour.

Sunflowers had a special significance for Van Gogh, they were a symbol of gratitude and evolved into his signature as he captured them in his unique style. Incredibly, this version of 'Sunflowers' was painted with just three shades of yellow. His subjective use of colour continues to be hugely influential on modern art today.
