    Default Carnation / Dianthus / Pinks / Sweet William

    Compiled from the Note Identification Project Thread:

    Carnation – Tried this accord and really liked it. It'd be great to dilute it in alcohol and wear! Ok, maybe not - might need some kind of fixative.

    Carnation – Clove, rose, orange, maybe some pepper. Cool, floral, spicy.

    Carnation smells quite peppery to me. At low doses, I think it could add a nice sweetness to woods such as cedar.

    i found this, which sums it up so nicely for Carnation:

    It is a blend of clove, black pepper and exotic sweetness of ylang ylang, which incidentally are often used to reproduce carnation scents.

    first time i noticed carnation flower was after trying many Parfums de Nicolai, where they seem to be heavily used:
    Sacrebleu, Maharanih, Maharadjah,Vanille Tonka, and that all amazed me by beeing different experience for my nose

    i love this note, but do have hard time recognizing what is clove, carnation and cinnamon!...when they are used together

    Lush Potion--smells exactly as above: peppery, clovey,citrusy at the start...then it warms and remains sweet, creamy...and making me sickly in a way just as clove can do too

    Carnation absolute - smells like marshmallow root tea to me little sweet, rooty, and mild, not spicy at all

    Dior Poison, opens up with so much spices from carnation too

    L Heure Bleue is unavoidable to mention here as well
