L'Air du Temps has long been the reference of carnation scents. While the vintage l'Air du Temps was an enchantment, the fragrance you find in the stores nowerdays is not up to the former prestige.
There is also the fact that l'Air du Temps is curiously part of those few fragrances that turn into sheer horror when encountering a highly acid body chemistry.
As for more modern interpretations of carnation, undoubtedly there are CdG Carnation which mixes the flowers to blood orange peels. The beautifully concentrated carnation fragrance Garofano by Lorenzo Villoresi has, not much in common with l'Air du Temps.
There is also Caron's Bellodgia which transports the carnation flower on a breeze of the Lake Como or the very British Malmaison by Penhaligon.
