Dianthus
This fragrance opens opens with a realistic rendition of carnation: bright, sweet and - true to the flower - slightly peppery. After an initial blast the pink pepper note fades into the background. The carnation accord is composed by various flowers and fruits: a bright-sweet top layer and a powdery-creamy bottom layer. On my skin the top notes burn off rather quickly, therefore the scent is mainly dry and powdery on me. It also is not very harmonious in its early development, it shifts between dewy-flowery and dry-powdery. It is as if the two note structures struggle for control of the fragrance. At any rate, after an hour or so the accord has found its balance. The dry down is composed of musk and woods with a subtle touch of vanilla. It has nothing to do with carnation anymore, yet it is still very pleasant to wear. This soliflore is a well-done interpretation and delivers what it promises. Although airy, the scent has great sillage.

Caveat: Carnation and Clove Loom Large
Carnation and clove loom large in Etro DIANTHUS, an undeniably oriental floral composition reminiscent to my nose of Caron BELLODGIA, and every bit as powerful.

DIANTHUS is a compelling creation, provided that you really like both carnation and clove, as they sing through loud and clear from start to finish. The geranium is also detectable early on, and a touch of cedar in the drydown, but C&C dominate all the way. The other notes--including citrus, pepper, ginger, and vanilla--are but very subtle embellishments.

The very spicy, somewhat heavy texture of DIANTHUS make it suitable for cold weather, as the C&C complex is well-anchored in a musk-resin base. A caveat is therefore in order: Apply sparingly, as though this edt (!) were perfume! I applied maybe .3 ml, and found that this "edt" lasts forever and even penetrates sweaters!

I won't be adding DIANTHUS to my collection, as I already have a several lifetimes supply of BELLODGIA, but I can recommend it do those who do not already own BELLODGIA and who love carnations and cloves!
