A lab grown tuberose. ...
I know I'm in the minority here and I'm not expecting positive ratings ;-) but this is my honest review after two thorough testings in different temperatures allowing the perfume to run its full course. I thought (I hope) a contrasting experience might be useful. Frederic Malle Carnal flower opens... Read more

Beautiful but Enormously Overpriced Take on the Legendary Fracas
Notes: Tuberose, Eucalyptus, Coconut, Jasmine, Orange Blossom, Melon, Ylang-Ylang, White Musk, Bergamot. I was gifted a sample of Carnal Flower recently, and I liked it so much that I purchased a full bottle from a very reputable retailer. I do not know how old was the sample gifted me, but I...

One in a million million perfumes
There aren't enough words to describe the pleasure of wearing this marvelous creation. Thank you Monsieur Ropion for this master piece of contemporary perfume art. Sure I'm a tuberose lover but I felt the new face of this note which was opened by Carnal Flower, was as crossing a door to a new... Read more

Wow, beautiful
This is one of the absolute best Jasmine scents I've come across. There is no sharpness here and it's not too sweet. There's quite a bit of tuberose with the jasmine but the two blend together so magically it's awe inspiring. I get a hint of eucalyptus and ylang-ylang in the background. Use a light... Read more

Unbridled Passion of a Tuberose
There are perfumes that completely transform your perspective when you wear them. Carnal Flower was one of them. It redeemed the tuberose in my eyes (or shall I say - my nose). Tuberose was never my favorite. I found that once tuberose is added to the mix, it makes the scent too loud and most of... Read more

Queen of Tuberoses.
One of my favorite perfumes. Some believe it's a loud perfume, I find it very elegant, Fracas for me is extremely loud. Every perfume lover should try this one.

Reference Tuberose...
Carnal Flower opens with a beautiful, almost Eau de cologne-like opening blast of natural bergamot and mild citrus that is all too brief. At that point the real floral assault begins with tuberose playing the starring role. When I say assault I do not mean this in a bad way, but it is potent to... Read more

A tuberose induced coma
I hear the name Carnal Flower bandied around the fragrance forums quite often, and there's always good things said about it. Up until this point I hadn't found the opportunity to explore Frederic Malle's perfumes in great depth, so Carnal Flower was one of those mysterious fragrances on my 'for... Read more

I'm still here, fully in tact, pretty much the same as I was before...
So many people have written about their throes of ecstasy in encountering Frédéric Malle CARNAL FLOWER that I was actually a bit hesitant to dip into my sample vial, which sat in my queue waiting patiently for quite some time. "What if perchance a single sniff might destroy the entire epic... Read more

Queen of florals or I´ve been eaten alive and I like it. ;)
Carnal Flower is my No 1 tuberose and not only that, but also one of my all time favorite scents. It was love at first sniff and we´re still having a passionate love affair after several years. Usually my go to scents are more in the soft gourmand, refined orientals and woody spectrum, which to me... Read more
