    This is a truly bewitching perfume that lingers. The peppery spice of carnations and peppercorns and the softer underlying harmony of honey and ambergris make it a real Mediterranean fragrance that evokes those enchanting interior courtyards with their flagstones and terracotta pots full of flowers, where people talk, play, work and love.

    Hands down, this is the best carnation fragrance I have ever found (and as a carnation lover, I have sampled many!). Unlike many carnation fragrances that end in clove overload, Oeillet Rouge is simultaneously a rich, redolent, dry, spicy red, and a velvety, dewy forest green. It has great depth and balance, and lasts for hours on my skin. Simply stunning. I have repurchased this twice after my initial bottle, and can’t imagine ever going without this fragrance.

    A unique take on a carnation soliflore, this flower has been dipped in honey! There is a warm, almost sun-drenched feel to the fragrance which allows the spices really bloom on the skin. Still, the carnation isn’t lost underneath this spicy-sweet coat; there is a discernible green accord that reminds the wearer of beautiful blooms in their peak. Very luxurious.

    I agree, excellent and not just for women. Not sweet, fruity or pink/white flowery to me. Opens with scarlet force, powered with peppery cinnamon, and you think it’s going to be a silage monster; but just enjoy that bright red burst and don’t worry. Not cloying at all, rich and sexy, spicy without inducing a migraine, and gorgeous dry down without resorting to syrupy vanilla. Bottle worthy.

    If you love carnations, then you must buy this wonderful fragrance! I used to wear Blue Carnation back in the 1970’s but when it disappeared, I couldn’t find anything like it. When I found DSH perfumes and ordered their Oeillets Rouges, I found it to be just heavenly! It smells spicy and fresh, like real red carnations! I plan on stocking up on this and loving wearing it every day! Thank you DSH Perfumes, for having my favorite scent!

    I have never worn a carnation fragrance before—I never knew there was such a thing! This is somewhat spicy to me but has a nicer drydown. I’m thinking that the solid which is softer would be just the thing for me.

    Unexpectedly beautiful and warm, reminding of winter holidays with its cinnamon-like aroma.

    I have been searching for years for a true carnation fragrance. A friend of mine gave me a bottle years ago and I could never replace it and I love the spiciness. I have not received my order yet, but am hoping this is what I have been looking for and if so, I will purchase the solid perfume as well! The other reviews give me hope!
    Thanks. My rating at this point is for having carnation available!

    This is a truly gorgeous carnation, so fresh-cut and intoxicating that I can feel the softness of the flower on my nose if I close my eyes. It has a lovely soft and complex dry-down, but everything hovers lovingly around the piquant spiciness of the carnation. This is a classic.

    I have been looking for a long time for a one note carnation scent that really smelled like the bright, clean, spicy carnation scent I love. I have found it in Oeillets Rouges. Thank you so much for this creation.

    Caron’s Bellodgia (1927) has for nearly a century been considered THE carnation scent. However, it always knocked me over with its intensity.

    Dawn has here spared nothing in the similar intensity arena, but added warming notes of amber, vanilla and honey to soften its edges and warm it, so that Oeillets Rouges is eminently wearable.

    Spicy, warm, crisp and soft – al at the same time. Truly a find for all carnation lovers.

    I ordered a sample of this as I was skeptical of finding a fragrance with an authentic carnation scent. I opened the package today, put some on, and am back to order a full size bottle. With every breath I take, I feel like I am sitting next to a vase full of carnations – delicious. 5 stars for scent and 5 for having samples sizes – thank you!

    I keep sampling different DSH perfumes, and I was not sure if this would work on me.
    Now I’m getting ready to order a bottle! It really does smell as it’s described, like a Carnation dipped in honey. I love the spiciness of the carnation that comes through, but the sweetness comes through as well and the combination is wonderful. Another bottle to be ordered!

    This is the perfume that made me able to finally identify and understand carnation. Some days this knocks me out as the most amazingly rich bottomless floral, but other days it strikes too much of a clove note for me. Despite my ambivalence about making a full bottle purchase (when I’m in the mood for clove notes I reach for Cuir et Champignon which never ceases to fascinate me) I went through my teeny sample bottle quickly and still find myself daydreaming about it.

    Been missing my carnations ever since Floris stopped making theirs. This one is sooooo much better. I love wearing it all by itself; no need to layer it. Yum.

    This is the perfect daytime perfume for cold weather: hot and spicy and lively enough to shake me out of the cold doldrums, but also fresh–it boosts my mood and my energy. It reminds me of Dawn’s Euphorisme d’Opium, which I adore, but scales down the femme fatale quality a little bit and thus is perhaps a bit more wearable in daytime. I’m glad I have it for this cold, cold winter!

    My favourite carnation scent of all time, it is more carnation dominant to my nose than Caron’s Bellodgia, it’s also cleaner and more modern, very rich and enveloping, day through to evening and superb in Spring and Autumn/Winter.
