    Wear what you like! I love a good floral on my husband, and he does, too. For the record, I think Carnal Flower is a sheer, green tuberose. I think that makes it more suitable to male wear than, say, Fracas. By the way, have you tried Fougere Emeraude by Les Indemodables?
    My only regrets in life are the people I haven't stood up for,
    and the perfumes I've thrown away.

    Tuberose is quite recongnizable in most perfumes so if you are ok with the other perfumes you mention, you will be ok with this as well.

    It's a quality tuberose scent, one of the few that I actually enjoy. Highly recommend trying it.

    That's a very generous amount to get started. Let us know what you think of it.

    It's one of the best tuberose perfumes out there, and lean unisex IMO. I have both Carnal Flower and Tubereuse Criminelle, and, interestingly, I've contemplated getting Nuit de Bakelite.

    Only you can make that judgment for yourself.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Tested it at Neiman, decided against it--even though I liked the scent. Found a bottle at Cosmetic Company Store. Purchased it immediately.

    1. Cedre - Serge Lutens
    2. Beyond Love - Kilian
    3. Carnal Flower

    In that order for me. I've worn all three and I'm quite gendercentric (new word).

    I'm a 45-year-old man, and I love wearing Carnal Flower. I almost wore it today. I actually hated tuberose until I tried Carnal Flower on skin.

    I'm not sure I'd blind buy it, though.

    From a male viewpoint, seconding all recommendations that rate/rank this one as unisex appropriate

    This is the best way to try Malle fragrances, IMO. It won't break the bank, but you'll get plenty of spritzes.

    Carnal Flower smells more like a florist's refrigerator or dense garden than a perfume - it just smells good, gender doesn't enter into it (for me).

    Carnal Flower would be the one to look at but you should try all of them out to see what works best for your nose.
