Carnal FlowerSold Out
Carnal Flower or forbidden flower is a fragrance with the scent of tuberose. Tuberose is a beautiful and dangerous flower. In some cultures, it is not allowed for young women to feel its intoxicating scent after sunset. Tuberose is a symbol of forbidden pleasure, hiding its passionate, sensual character behind its fresh, white, floral face. Its intoxicating scent seduces many perfumers; Frederic Malle and creator Dominique Ropion tried to repeat this scent in their particular way. Frederic Malle was inspired for Carnal Flower during his visits to California, where everything smells like gardenia and tuberose.
Dominique Ropion worked on development of the formula for more than two years. The perfume contains a larger dose of tuberose absolute than any other perfume. The composition opens with heavy, green notes of citrus leaves and branches. As tuberose develops, the green nuance passes into a note of camphora, which softens the opulent flowers unintrusively. Fruity nuances of melon and coconut add light and slightly gourmet sound to the composition and do not attract attention.
The muse for this perfume was Frederic Malle’s aunt, famous actress Candice Bergen, who acted in the movie Carnal Knowledge with Jack Nicholsonom.
The perfume was created in 2005.
The top notes contain: bergamot, melon and eucalyptus. The middle notes include: ylang-ylang, jasmine, tuberose, Salicylates (natural, toxic product of herbal origin, a sort of a herbal feromone which is used by plants as a warning). The base encompasses: tuberose absolute, orange blossom absolute, coconut and musk.

To me this scent is light but alluring. It's fresh and flowery but not overwhelming. I don't think it lasts a long time but I could still smell it slightly 12 hours later. Perfect for me as many perfumes give me a headache, but not this one.
This scent is floral but not in a heavy cloying way., I usually don’t prefer florals but this fragrance is intoxicating and I couldn’t resist smelling my wrist all day.. it’s light and clean.. will def purchase .. also shipping was quick which I really appreciate.. thank u!
You've just arrived home from the perfect tropical island vacation, and you already miss everything about it—the sights, sounds, and smells. In particular, the intoxicating bouquet of white flowers gently coalescing with coconut lotion from the beach. It's a smell you'll never forget and one you "wish you could bottle." Luckily, Frederic Malle's Carnal Flower, created by Dominique Ropion, will help you remember that smell forever. It's instantly impressionable with its one-two punch of white flowers and green notes from tuberose and jasmine stems. A quick hit of citrus immediately falls to the wayside, and on the dry down, soft musk and coconut notes begin to come forward to round everything out.
