I smelled smooth peppers at the beginning. Anise keeps whisping in and out. This has a carnation note blended in, but it doesn't scream "carnation". It had great persistence and actually seemed more carnation-like the longer it went on. This is unisex. It's not bad, but I wouldn't reach for it if I wanted carnations. One of the reviewers below had it dead on …Read more

Cool toned, soapy geranium carnation with a sweet dry down. Not dusky or spice laden. I have a fondness for the spicy carnation accord, but since I have a full bottle of Lorenzo Villarossi Garafano (a discontinued soapy carnation); a bottle of vintage Floris Malmaison; a bottle of vintage Roger et Gallet blue carnation and a few others, this is unnecessary. The fact that this doesn't turn …Read more

Soapy carnations! I asked four people for their impression of this perfume while I was wearing it and two of the four said it smelled like a laundry room - that residual scent of fabric softeners. Everyone liked it, mind you, but this perfume is too expensive just to smell vaguely clean and sweet! It is pretty, so if your skin tends to bring out spicy notes it's worth a try.

Spicy carnation, lovely at first spritz but after 30 minutes looses it's character. Quite forgettable.

It is a dark Gothic perfume. The clove, nutmeg, and peppers notes did not make this perfume warm and spicy. Quite contrary, Vitriol d’oeillet stayed cool and slightly salty. Carnations notes added the scent of freshly-cleaned linens. Overall, I got spicy soap.
I found it very long lasting. Therefore I give it 2 lippies.

I love clove, pepper and carnation, so I was really excited to track down a sample of this scent. Serge Lutens' fragrances rarely work out for me, though, and Vitriol d'oeillet turns out to be another dud for me. I don't really get much spice from this at all, oddly, and it's more of a powdery, slightly cloying floral scent. I really thought that it had violet in it until I …Read more

I find this strangely haunting and beautiful. It has a peppery lift that is more than reminiscent of the carnation,apparently the theme here. Here I consider that IFRA apparently banned all the aroma chemicals that make up the carnation note, and I can only surmise that the artist perfumers decided to have a go and stick s few carnation scents up the beaurocracy because this smells so like a …Read more

This is actually one of the softest carnation scents I've tried. I love florals, and I love the spiciness of carnations, and this version is really really nice.
Carnation can make a fragrance smell a bit old-fashioned, but here the carnation is very subtle and there's nothing dusty about it. On me it's not sharp, I actually find this very soft and floral and the carnations …

Carnation with bite. I’m not a fan of floral perfumes so this isn’t my favorite, although I greatly respect how unusual a scent it is. The clove is my favorite part about it. It’s not a clove cigarette clove, but more of a clove simmering in a caldron over an open fire in a dark coniferous forest clove combined with pungent lillies. I was wearing this whilst I went to see the movie “Prometheus” …Read more

All right, first, the rest of the reviewers are crazy. Crazy! This fragrance is tormeting me. I'm trying to pare down and no-buy, but from the first sniff of this from a sample vial, it's been wearing me down. Beautiful. Gorgeous. Stunning.


One of the reviewers below actually sampled this with me, and I hope one day she amends her review to admit that on other …
