Scent 8.5/10
Melancholy revealed
There is some similarity between this one and De Profundis, the same melancholy feeling and stale atmosphere. No wonder both were released in the same year. Vitriol opens up dramatically, but soon turns into a plain spicy carnation, leaving a feeling of greyness, fog and dark clouds, and something... Read more

Spicy carnation warmth
This is beautiful, an abundance of clovey, spicy carnation goodness.It lasts and is suitable for any season I feel although its approaching winter right now in good old blighty and I'm loving it. Although it's spicy and peppery I get the floral in this too, subdued violet and a wearable, non... Read more

Vitriol d'Œillet
This fragrance opens with a (genetically) engineered carnation accord. I see its typical spiciness and sweet creaminess, but a brutally synthetic fruit contains the floral like a straightjacket. The resulting accord smells like the German hard candy Gletschereis: fruity, minty, spicy and above all... Read more

Carnation boutonnière
Since my interest in perfume didn’t hit full on obsession until midlife, there are gaps in my knowledge of classic fragrances and genres. As a result, I think I’m intuitively drawn to fragrances that are fairly basic and straightforward as a way of wrapping my nose around traditional forms. To... Read more

It's a grower
When I first tried Vitriol d'Oeillet, I did not find it carnation enough. Then I realized that perhaps it was not a carnation scent at all, but an impression of carnation. That may or many not be true. But now, after about 4 wears, I find Vitriol d'Oeillet to be like a lightly spiced rose... Read more

The dissection of a carnation
After reviewing Dolce & Gabbana´s pricey Velvet Love, and praising it for its stunning sensual carnation, i thought i would revisit this very different take on the same flower, Vitriol d´Oeillet. This is a modernized old-fashioned dandy fragance. Like a stylish costume movie from this... Read more

Fiery carnation
A very important note is missing in this scent pyramid, and that is carnation. For many critics, Vitriol d’œillet failed to impress, but I'm going to add my two cents and say that I actually enjoyed wearing Vitriol d’œillet and am quite prepared to give it a favourable review. Carnation is... Read more

Prickly Spicy Carnations
I read fragrance blogs that this would be a Powdery CARNATION fragrance... I imagined it be a very modern take on the classic BELLODGIA by CARON which I love for its in your face CARNATION notes.... softened by VANILLA, MUSK and CLOVE. Boy was I pleasantly wrong. This fragrance is... Read more
