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...

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...

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....

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
