    Carnal Flower by Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle

    First impressions my butt! If you see my first review of Carnal Flower you'll know exactly what I mean. But, I gave it another try, and I "got" it. Well I didn't just get it, I fell dizzyingly in love with it!
    This is tuberose in all her shimmering glory. All the notes you've heard about are there: the camphorous, chilling opening, the crush of living foliage threaded through the tuberose heart, the coconut quivering about the edges with a musk so crystalline "white" doesn't do it justice; more like platinum.
    Carnal Flower is more than a masterpiece, more than an icon. It is pleasure in a bottle. It is explosively gorgeous. Carnal Flower is just perfection.
