Comme des Garçons Carnation

Carnation by Comme des Garçons

Posted by Hello

Today's fragrance choice is CdG's Carnation, when I applied it this morning it smelled sweet. However upon re-application I can smell the spiciness of it. It's a bit like red hots meets carnation.

According to Luckyscent, the notes in this one are: red carnation, essence of red pepper, red rose, cloves, absolute Egyptian jasmine, absolute red pepper.

It sounds a lot spicier than it actually is, it's not as powdery as Malmaison and it's spicier than DSH's Oeillets Rouges. I think this would be great year round but especially sexy for evening use!

This is a welcome find and the price isn't too bad compared to Oeillets Rouges but I hear you can find it at better prices at other places! Online however it's available at Luckyscent for $58/75 ml. or 2.5 oz.

I love so many of the CdGs! The carnation is really pretty, and I need to try more of the red series.
This was the very first CdG I had ever tried but if the rest of the line is just as good, sign me up!
