CdG's Carnation in the Red series (I'm so tempted to call this Red Carnation) is a wonderfully rich true carnation you want to bury your nose in.

I guess I'm a rare bird in that I love a carnation scent. CdG hits the spot with a rich burst of cloves that stays true right to the drydown. If Malmaison is my daytime carnation CdG is for the night.

Strange scent. Probably should not have purchased this unsniffed. Since I love the smell of carnations (the real, old-fashioned dianthus) and have loved many a good carnation soap and other...

I have tried so many carnation scents over the past year, and this was last in my long line of wishes for sampling (besides JAR Golconda, which I intend to sample one day!) and it is a pleasant,...

I do enjoy carnation scents. I found this one a bit disappointing. I guess I had hoped that CdG would do for the carnation what it did for incense--make it come alive on the skin until you almost...

Err... I'm not mad about carnations and in this case "the Comme des Garcons miracle" did not take place. But if you LOVE spicy hot peppery carnations, give it a go! /// Update: this is getting...

Not really a carnation scent, despite the name, this is an unsatisfyingly hollow abstract rendition of the flower. A saccharined, thin and very synthetic rose is layered with a prominent and...

I am not a fan of carnation in fragrance but this is just lovely. Wore it for the first time today and its not only lasting but soft and spicy. A must try for carnation fans and for people like me...

Loved it at first, but somehow, over the two years I've owned it, the fragrance has changed in the bottle. Now it's got a nauseating quality I can't stand. (And no, it's not that I'm pregnant or...
