    Default looking for a carnation perfume

    I'm looking forward to buying a Carnation-based fragrance, any advice?
    P.S. I tried Villoresi's Garofano and I liked it, didn't quite like Vitriol D'Oillet (I smell too many white flowers and not the spicy/carnation Iwas looking for); maybe Malmaison by Floris?!
    help, please!

    I'm not a big Carnation lover but the CDG one is popular.

    I'll second CDG Series 2 Red: Carnation.

    Extremely realistic-- less clove-y than the LV Garofano or Santa Maria Novella Garofano.

    You mentioned Floris Malmaison. I own it. It is fabulous but difficult to find.

    I'm a carnation fan but I'm I'm not easy to satisfy. Most fail at getting the scent right, making it too powdery-floral or just smelling of cloves, which I like, but isn't quite carnation.

    JAR Golconda is excellent, lasts decently, and is very rich-smelling. There's some natural-smelling jasmine in this one, too.

    Ayala Moriel InCarnation is spicy-animalic carnation, soft and not very powerful but quite true to the flower. Lovely stuff.
