Straightforward Carnation
A carnation soliflore, a "green" carnation, but beware, the heart is made of cloves - so you might experience a whiff of a "medicinal" smell here (cloves are still used as a herbal remedy by dentists in order to fight tooth-ache). The aroma is far too harsh for me! Staying-power is great, but the scent is not my favourite carnation soliflore. Fragonard's "Billet Doux" is cheaper and much softer.

Die and go to heaven
This is wonderful!
I was a bit sceptical to start with because carnations are not what I would call pretty flowery flowers.
They are quite cold and harsh by nature and known as cemetery offerings in France.
BUT...
Comme des Garcons have managed to create something fabulous. This surrounds you in a delicious cloud.
The rose in its supporting role, adds a soft rounded and almost sugary aspect to this magic potion and the cloves complement it with a spicy edge.
The three together work in perfect harmony and it ends up being the perfect carnation scent. A soliflore, only better.
It is quite linear, but has great projection and stays on all day.
I love it!

carnations & red hearts candies
At first I get a big dose of aldehydes. Then, carnations & red hearts candies. However, this is not a BPAL fragrance. Surprisingly, CdG carnation works. Listed as unisex, I think it's more femme than not.

One of my first niche purchases. Even after sampling tons of other niche fragrances, I'd have to say CdG Red 2 Carnation is one of the best niche fragrances for me - a unique, quality scent that's a highly personal choice.
