Not the chilly/spicy scent of carnations out of the florist's refrigerator or the richly spicy and honeyed smell of carnations growing in the heat, but carnation-like enough to qualify as a carnation perfume. If that sounds like I'm damning with faint praise, I apologize! It's good perfume and I like it.

CdG Carnation is spicy without veering into dusty clove territory …

Spicy, hot, zesty, fresh, and (according to my Husband) "that really sexy perfume." My favorite fragrance ever--a floral/oriental that is not sweet in the least-- just va va va voom sensually smoking. To me it is a true carnation, with all the spiciness of the flower. Some say it has too much clove or cinnamon, but as a non-lover of most florals, I think the balance is perfect. If this …Read more

Big Red chewing gum, not carnation on me.

Sweet, clean carnations. I loved this, but my husband apparently hates carnation, so I ended up swapping the sample. This goes on as true carnation, but ends up just a little bit synthetic. It reminds me very much of a scented creme perfume from the early 80s. Really pretty, very nice. Does lack the spice of Coup de Fouet but I still really enjoyed it.

I love this. I would call this an all weather sort of scent, spicy and floral for warmer weather, and has the warmth for cooler months too.
I would call this a true carnation and I love carnations. My mum grew so many carnations when I was growing up and they had that spicy quality that is captured beautifully in this perfume. I don't think it is synthetic in anyway and think it is …

I was sooo disappointed in this. I thought it smelled synthetic, like if plastic carnations were scented in the factory, this might be what it would be like. I'm probably being hard on this scent, but I spent what is (to me) a lot of money b/c I had read so many great reviews... Maybe I got an old bottle, or the guy who squirts whatever's missing from this was at home sick the day mine …Read more

Eh. Way too pricey for what it is. Truthfully, Skindescent's "Pink Carnation" is much, much better. Stronger, spicier, longer-lasting. Not so wimpy at a fraction of the price.

Red hots in the very topnotes. Then it goes to a nonpowdery carnation with clove and some barely earthy notes which are nice and make it more realistic. It is not a complex carnation scent (see DSH Oeillets Rouges), but it is pretty nice.

I smelled honeyed carnation at first. Mmm. Fresh carnation, warmed up with yummy clove and cinnamon spices, and a liberal touch of rose. I guess that makes it a floriental. No powder at all. LOVE that. Not boozy and heavy, which means I can wear it for daytime too. For me, this is happiness in a jar, or, in my case, a small decant. More energizing than bold. It is true that this is …Read more

I am a carnation freak and love carnations in just about all of their incantations. This one is very spicy with cloves and cinnamon and no powder that I detect. It lasts a long time on the skin.
I'm not so much a fan of the packaging - the opaque bottle makes it very difficult to judge how much juice you've got left. It's not poorly packaged, just a personal annoyance. …
