Cheap rewriting of classics
A scent vaguely reminiscent of many classic floral-fruity fragrances, revisited with a “cheap niche” mood (I mean quality-wise cheap). Which means: ready-made synthetic bases and accords, a bold metallic aftertaste, a general sense of plainness, with no dimensionality and the feeling it's all heading nowhere. Basically there’s flowers (a dry and earthy plastic rose, carnation, and possibly also ylang to me), fruity notes, something greenish-vegetable, patchouli, cedar and sandalwood on the base and a discreet spicy accord in which I smell mostly cumin, cinnnamon and pepper. It soon evolves and settles on a generic, dry floral-leafy-woody blend, slightly powdery too, with no praise or blame, with a vague floral accord which is so synthetic and tamed-down that it could be anything. Lasting for hours, identical to itself (ah, these naturals...). I wouldn’t say that at least it is pleasant, because it smells actually even a bit tacky. Linear and cheap. Complete indifference.

Lovely Carnation fragrance
Aedes de Venustas Oeillet Bengale. Even that some creations has emerged on the last years, it's rare to find fragrances with a carnation inspiration, possibly due the old-fashioned retro aura they possess and the difficulty in sustaining an accord like this inside the current restrictions that limit a lot one of the main responsibles for the clove/carnation smell, the eugenol. Oeillet Bengale, somehow, is able to be successful in creating a carnation scent in this scenario, sustaining the warm, spicy and sweet powdery aroma for quite a good time.The opening has an interesting clove nuance, it reminds me the smell of the little dried cloves when you open their package to pick some and put in some recipe. After that the carnation assumes its medicinal, oily side and also a powdery aroma in its flower accord.I notice that the cinnamon is worked in a complementary way to it, giving it a sweeter side.The rose and saffron here also work as complements, but to the flower part of the idea; they are structured to reflect the a silky, spicy, and sweet powdery aroma to the carnation. Oeillet Bengale finishes in a similar way to Washington Tremlett Clove Absolute in a sweet and resinous base of vanilla, benjoin, labdanum and tolu balsam, an oriental and warm base with a sweet side just right.I'm enthusiast of clove and carnation fragrances and i think this one is, thus, fascinating.
