A Beautiful rendition of English Stocks. Although lacking in longevity, a stunning scent. Stocks do smell of cloves and carnations however the milky quality of this scent softens the spiciness of the clove. To me this is redolent of an English country garden. A Beautifully realised floral cologne. Thumbs up all the way.
This has way to much cloves that has been sweetened with cinnamon. It comes across as a fragrance a old lady would wear in the 1920's. A sweet creamy clovey scent that I just do not care for.
My heavens this one is bizarre! I can't really says it's bad per se, just odd and discordant. The opening is very sweet, very creamy, and very clovey. The heart is musty florals and the base is a strange, milky amber just like the name says. Give it a try and see what you think. I guarantee you've never smelled one like this before.
This has become one of my favorite light scents for everyday wear. Really. Unlike some reviewers, I get no onslaught of cloves from this scent. On me, the lovely initial carnation and myrtle only gradually give way to a warm, milky clove base that I find almost hypnotically soothing. I did at first wonder if this scent might be a bit too feminine, but I think that first impression had more to do with my lack of familiarity with masculine florals. Sillage is fairly minimal, which enables me to enjoy my carnation "boutonniere" without causing my colleagues to wonder if they've been transferred to a florist shop. My wife has commented favorably on this scent's warm spiciness. Trumper's adds a small amount of glycerin to Milk of Flowers to enable its use as a body spray, which is how I usually employ it.
Cloves are a favorite smell for me from clove cigarettes I used to smoke in college. Milk of Flowers is a little odd in that it's waaaay too much clove, cinnamon and nutmeg. THere's also a creamy/milky amber base. It's like a Christmas pie in your Fruit Loops.
