this is my "sex" perfume, when i know its going to happen, and "portrait of a lady" is my malle "lawyer meetings" perfume. yes its green and yes its polarizing but my goi to fragrance is Fracas and Killian Beyond Love and LOve and Tears both for different moods but Carnal Flower is a guarantee that im going to do the walk of shame, men love it when it powders down, at first its too green or maybe thats the hexane in the tuberose absolute, but after a glass of bubbly and your makeup on slip on your best panties, another killer queen Malle is "Lipstick Rose" which is great for working with men, in Hollywood, and "quelque Fluers" which ive heard is Ditas favourite too, Fracas is my go to so i like LOUD perfumes, "portatit of a lady is very quiet ive also tried all the amouage perfumes and thats another eereview prefume is meant to have an effect on yourself and others if you have the confidence Carnal Flower will get you - laid or close to it!
Amazing !!!! One of my favorite fragrances ever. The hair mist is awesome !
lalki1's review below sums up what I was about to write, and others describe the notes in detail better but I've been putting off buying this perfume for AGES (due to the price). Will buy again, I am a fan of Tuberose and this is different enough for me to justify although if I had to pick between it and the others I would pick Tuberose Criminelle, but this is still worth rating of 5 for me.
LOVELY floral fragrance, good sillage, and works well on my skin chemistry so its sort of become my every day perfume now.
The most beautiful, realistic white flower perfume. fresh, a little green-( love), and uncloying but at the same time sweet and lush. perfect for any age IMO and any season. 1 spray is all you need.
Interesting idea of pungent tuberose combined with green notes, in theory I should love but it put me off balance, just wasn't complementary to my personality. Dry down smells cheap for a perfume that expensive and reminds me of 1980's scrubber Amarige. Not good.
Another Malle I had to give a 5 even though I wouldn't wear it, because it is just state-of-the-art. There is a touch of freshness in the opening, then the purest tuberose. Tuberose lovers have to try this
This smells good - it smells like flowers. I am surprised it is tuberose because I thought I didn't like tuberose. Nevertheless, I'm not picking up on what's so interesting about it. Will keep trying.
edited: I have changed it from 3 to 5. I chose to wear it for my Valentine's Day/Anniversary dinner and it was a good one.
Normally, I only review perfumes that I really like or really hate... This one, however - confuses me. It's not that I detest Carnal Flower, but I just I really wanted to love it. From the reviews on here; it seems like it's a polarizing fragrance - you either love it or hate it. I really wanted to love it, like that confident feeling on your way to the shop, as if it's already yours? I tried this last night and I think it's the tuberose one me. SUUUPER green & bright upon first spray & I wanted to immediately scrub it off. Once it mellowed, it unveiled a creaminess that I thought "hey, this isn't bad", but then it went back to screeching tuberose. Might be worth another try. I would say - for those who like it; it did have MEGA silage. I still smelled it the next morning, after I scrubbed my arm twice in the shower, and slept 8 hours! Too bad - it's always the ones you don't love - that last the longest on you, right? :) Happy sniffing!
This scent reminds me of the smell of a cheap, off brand dryer sheet that I once used....so this is tuberose? Not For Me.
