CARNATION | Absolute

  • $75.00

Pure Dianthus caryophyllus absolute.

The Carnation flower has a mysterious, luxurious, comforting-yet-euphoric aroma, corroborated and supported by history. Indeed, the flowers were strongly associated with love, weddings, and fidelity. In the Victorian language of flowers, it symbolizes pure love. Carnations were also the main flowers used by the ancient Greeks in the making of garlands and coronets, from which its name is derived. 

The absolute is mainly intended for use in perfumery. Carnation provides warm spicy, and floral nuances; it yields charismatic notes of honey and spice with a breath of floral languor.
