Product Review: Prestige Flowers Haute Florist Bouquet

Reading Time: 4 minutes

I love having fresh flowers in the house, it adds something warming and comforting to a room, as well as adding colour on a dreary day.

I’m lucky enough to have access to a wide range of picking flowers at home, but when the need arises, I love to support local florists, and in the Cotswolds am spoilt for choice.

Sometimes buying local is not always possible, particularly for family who live away and I find myself trawling the internet for a service that delivers flowers to the door.

Having had disappointing experiences with these types of companies before, where what you receive is absolutely NOTHING like what you ordered from the website.

I am cautious now in the companies I choose to use.

Prestige Flowers Review

When I was asked to review a bouquet from Prestige Flowers, I was unsure what to expect, but promised myself my review would be honest!

Last Friday and a couple of days after my initial contact with Prestige, my bouquet arrived it in it’s “this way up” black and white Prestige box. I peered inside – the fragrance hit me straight away. Beautiful!

This is my first brand review, and what a lovely way to start!

Paris Bouquet

I was sent the Paris Bouquet, which boasts Memory Lane roses, divine deep water roses, the most fragrant oriental lilies, stallion chrysanthemums and forest fresh eucalyptus.

The bouquet was hand tied in luxury wrap, together with it’s own bag. Also inside the box was a tall glass vase for me to use when I got home from work.

Also provided is a little information leaflet on how to prolong the life of your flowers, and a little information about each of the flowers that are included in the bouquet.

The flowers are provided in “tight” buds, so that the recipient gets the longest possible life from their bouquet. With mine, after just a few hours, the flowers started to open out in all their glory.

Once I was home and had re-arranged, as per the instructions received, into my new vase.

Cutting off the ends at a 45degree angle and making sure not to get any leaves into the water (I learnt this from my landlord and is now the first thing I do when arranging flowers).

I carefully selected a nice spot on my living room table next to the window to display this beautiful bouquet.

If I’m completely honest, I would’ve preferred a more bulbous vase than the one received as that would really showcase the bouquet, but the one sent was perfectly functional, and saved me searching my cupboards for a more eye-catching alternative!

The Roses

This bouquet treats you to a mixture of beautiful dusky pink colour and a lighter pink roses, perfect for the changes we’re experiencing with the change in the seasons from summer to autumn.

Gone are the bright summery hues and welcome to the dusky autumnal colours that mix perfectly with the grey of the skies.

Oriental Lilies

Now I love lilies but often find the smell of them overpowering to my hayfever. When I’ve had bouquets before, I’ve had the traditional white lilies.

As these particular ones begin to open out from their tight bud, they are the most exquisite pink and live up to their fragrant nature! So far, no sniffles! More importantly, no mess on the table!

White stallion chrysanthemum

These sprays were different to the violet purple as displayed on the website image of the bouquet, but no less pretty.

They fill out the bouquet lovely and provide a stark white contrast to the variety of pinks in the bouquet.

Forest fresh eucalyptus

The eucalyptus adds a nice touch of greenery and also has a slight scent to it.

In Summary

Nearly one week on from receiving my bouquet, the buds are still opening, the flowers are still fresh and beautiful and open out more each day.

I’ve topped up the water as it becomes low to prolong their life even further. As I notice petals darkening and turning I pick them off to allow the inner petals to shine once again.

Overall, this is a really beautiful bouquet that I would highly recommend. I was incredibly impressed with the service and the quality of bouquet I had received.

Looking at the website there is a huge range of options, and additional extras.

I’m sure I’ll continue to enjoy these flowers for a few more days yet as they are showing no signs of going bad.

Admittedly, when the lilies start to turn, my nose and my sanity will require me to throw them out, but hopefully I can enjoy them for a bit longer yet!

Please check them out when you’re next looking to purchase a bouquet of flowers whether it be a special occasion, condolence or you just want some flowers:

Do I think that Prestige could rival a local florist? They aren’t far off!

Would I buy from them in future? Definitely! Look out mum, you’re getting flowers for your birthday 😉

Peace out!

    This look so pretty! I often go to Oops A Daisy for specialist flowers or Roses in Bishops Walk (both in Ciremcester), but may have to try these next time.

      Oh I’ve not tried Cirencester for florists I’ll have to look them up. Now the picking flowers are threatening to come to an end, I’m not sure I can cope without fresh flowers!

      As I type, my prestige ones are still opening and looking fresh! That’s now 8 days.
