I am wearing it I wore it… It inspires me It doesn't inspire me


A sun-drenched, floral-Oriental scent opening with the sweetness of gillyflower and Bourbon geranium. The heart unites white flowers, violets and woodnotes. In closing, styrax and amber come together for an enveloping tail. Fragrance designer: Mona di Orio.

A sweet and elegant perfume dedicated to Colette


Carnation is one of the first three fragrances from perfume designer Mona di Orio. This voluptuous floral-Oriental evokes the warm and sensual scent of skin after a day in the sun. Carnation refers not to the flower, but to a French word for skin tone. Hedonistic, sun-drenched… it was designed as an homage to the exciting life of writer Colette. In selected perfume shops.

    Geranium and Ylang Ylang sound fine. I have no idea what a gillyflower smells like or what styrax is like. Could be a pass on by without a try. I wanted it to smell floral like a carnation.

    J'ai eu l'occasion de découvrir cette fragrance par l'intermédiaire d'un échantillon et pour être honnête je n'est vraiment pas appréciée ; il m'évoque l'odeur d'herbe séchée destiné à l'alimentation des animaux.....
