Description

 Serge Lutens Vitriol D'Oeillet - Vitriol d'Oeillet means "angry carnation." We never think of carnations as being angry, but if they were, this is how they would smell, spicy, woody, fierce. There isn't anything shy or wilting about this carnation!

Reviews of Serge Lutens Vitriol D'Oeillet from noses that may or may not sniff like your nose.   

from perfumeposse - "Serge doesn’t not make some dainty little carnation perfume at all with Serge Lutens Vitriol d’oeillet. This smacks you over the head with pepper and spice, unfurling into a gale force wind.  Notes of clove, nutmeg, cayenne, black pepper, pink pepper, and woods are the main notes.  Bellodgia with spurs.  I’m trying to tell you what it is, but it’s hard. I do not think it will be well-loved, though I’m completely enchanted with how familiar, yet foreign it smells.  It’s  not pretty or floral.  It’s a surreal landscape of carnation.  This is the Serge I like, weirdly uncompromising."

from perfumeshrine - "The opening of Serge Lutens Vitriol d'Oeillet is sharp, caustic as befits the name though not smelling of sulphur, without the dense powdery note that surrounds the rich floral heart of retro carnations such as Caron's Bellodgia. After all, clove, the main spicy component in creating a carnation accord in perfumery, is called clou de girofle in French, same as a pointy "nail". But despite the disruptive nails on a chalkboard of the opening of the new Lutens fragrance, the progression of Vitriol d'Oeillet softens gradually; much like Tubéreuse Criminelle hides a silken polished floral embrace beneath the mentholated stage fright. In Vitriol d'Oeillet's case Serge hides the heart of a lush lily inside the spicy mantle. Indeed it is more of a lily than a carnation fragrance, as per the usual interpretation of carnation in perfumery."

    I have nearly all of the SL perfumes because I love them so much, some more than others, but I held back from buying this one until after I received my sample because it did not receive great reviews and description threw me off. This is a lovely, spicy, rose-carnation with wood blend that morphed throughout the day. After four hours the woods and a sweet smell emerged along with a "mellow pepper-spice carnation." Longevity is fantastic; silage is low to moderate. And it's got enough classic SL twist to make it different. Though I don't think roses smell like carnations, this is a bit what I'd imagine a "winter rose" to be. From being overlooked on various fragrance sites, and in France when I was there, it's become one of my favorites. I used my generous sample twice, got a FB. Love it!

    This is spicy and lush all at once. The sillage is delicious and longlasting. I'm wearing it often this summer, and in the heat, it is magic. Love love love.
