    Carnal Flower by Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle

    For my personal taste Carnal flower is not green enough and very feminine, well very floral that's for sure. To me it's a very realistic recreation of the smell you get when you walk through a street with lots of tuberose bushes on the sidewalks. That somewhat creamy thick flowery smell in hot air. Carnal flower is very well blended because none of the notes stand out. It all becomes one flower with the eucalyptus giving the natural smell of leaves and stalks. I don't get any bergamot or melon per se but when you know it is in there, it does make sense.
    I would have been interested in something less impressionistic.
    More green herbs, more eucalyptus, more playfulness and contradictions would have lifted Carnal flower to another level.
