Carven Parfums Carven Le Parfum description

Francis Kurkdjian?s work for Carven is one of the best examples of floral perfumery going today. Each of his three main Carven perfumes (L?Absolu, Le Parfum, and the Eau de Toilette) combine the same notes (sweet pea, ylang ylang, mandarin) in a variety of ways, so the fragrances fully present their unique personalities.

And like any large family, those personalities are sharp

Not my thing
I really prefer a lighter , cleaner , fruitier scent. This one is just too musky for my taste .

Mystery grandma
I don't what it is about this scent but I like it. A little different. Borderline old lady perfume but maybe I'm getting old and should embrace it. Like the grandma you hug and just want to breath in their scent.

Strong and bold - not for the faint of heart
At first I was grossed out - it?s SO STRONG! But I actually grew to love it when I tried it out some more. I actually really enjoyed spraying it on my pillows and feeling like I was sleeping in a luxury hotel. It does remind me of a grandma scent but somehow I?m 28 and I enjoy it!

For mature ladies
This was nice. Lasted a long time. I could only recommend it to ladies over 40. Definitely not for young ladies.

A pretty strong perfume. Hard to even tell the scents. I found another persons review linking it to her grandma?s right on the money. I?m sure some people like this strong, old fashioned scent. It?s just not for me.

At first I really wasn?t sure about this one. It smelled a little mature for me but I gave it a chance and I?m glad I did. It definitely isn?t a very light perfume. It was heavy and had a fairly musky smell on me. It lasted throughout the day and through a workout, so fading is not something you have to worry about with this one. Although it says it has floral scents to it, I definitely would consider it a fall to winter perfume. I enjoy it but probably will not buy a full bottle

I really like this one. It is complicated which us mature ladies truly enjoy. It starts fruity and floral but as it lingers it blends into a jasmin patchouli late summer evening garden. Still sweet and light enough not to be too heavy but lasting for many hours. I look forward to trying more by this brand.

I really wanted to like this but had a super strong and not pleasant first spray and then a lingering smell that just doesn?t seem right. It?s a bit musk.

I?m sorry, I wasn?t a fan. I really like light and flowery fragrances and this to me was musky. It smelled heavy like a man?s fragrance. I thought that it was just me, but I sprayed it when someone else was around and even she said she didn?t like it. It may be just my opinion, but I wasn?t a fan.

Upon receiving my 2nd shipment, I was relieved to see that there was a rounded cardboard case containing the fragrance as I had visions of the bottle being loosely packaged in the bubble wrapped envelope. Glad his was NOT the case. When I opened the fragrance my first whiff I fell in love! I was ready to purchase a full bottle. But then... when I sprayed it the scent was slightly different. It?s strong, it?s a very mature fragrance. There is a deep ness to it that reminds me of Dolce &gabanna The One, but the scent changes on my skin and isn?t as pleasant. It reminds me of an old lady unfortunately. This makes me sad because I had high hopes at first!!!!

I love this scent. I immediately got compliments when I walked in the room. Not that that's what I need, but when it's all guys who never notice anything, it's nice.

This one is very pleasant. It lasts most of the day, and is a little strong at the start, but I don't find it overwhelming. Classic, elegant, and clean, but not too basic. The opening has a fruity sweetness, and it transitions into an almost fully floral scent over time. It is a little bit soapy, in a way that reminds me of those fancy molded hand soaps, but 1) that's because the soaps are spring flower scented, and 2) I like those too!

I enjoyed this perfume (especially for my first shipment) BUT it does remind me of something a more "mature" women may enjoy and being that I'm only fifty I feel I may be a bit too young for this scent.

Not for me. This fragrance is too green for my taste. You get a blast of hyacinth in the opening. I like this kind of scent for a room air freshener, but I don't want to smell like it.

I really liked the freshness of this perfume. Its not sweet, its fresh and citrusy and an easy going scent. No super strong. Not in your face. Just smell good. That's the best way to describe this....just a bottle of smell good. I don't always want to smell like perfume, sometimes I just like the 'you smell really good but I can't put my finger on it, maybe its your natural scent' kind of smell. This is that for me.

I like this scent when I first put it on. After an hour or so, it's just ok. I don't think it last long enough. It's not something I would buy in a normal sized bottle.

A bit about me: I'm 35, work in a conservative field, and prefer floral, classic, sophisticated scents. I like this perfume a lot, but I don't love it. When I smell it directly on my skin (think, putting my nose to my wrist and smelling), the floral note is stronger and I like it most then. Overall, however, the floral isn't super strong - which is why I "like" and don't "love" it. Also, even though I prefer "older" scents, I think this one might be just a bit too mature. I'm enjoying the 30 day supply but would not buy a full size.

Delightful. I appreciate the floral notes, but I get a healthy dose of fruit here - the apricot is sweet without being too sweet. I think the balance between the two is what keeps the scent light. It has a decent amount of staying power without being overwhelming.

I really enjoy this fragrance and find myself grabbing in lieu of others. It is a more fruity fragrance, not over bearing. It doesn't seem to last a whole long time for me however. Nice and fresh without being in your face.

This scent was soft and elegant like wearing silk with pearls. It reminded me so much of my grandmother's trademark perfume, Guerlain's Shalimar, that whenever I wear Carven, it's like I get a warm hug from my Mimi. Delicate, dynamic and lasts all day, even through a shower. New favorite!

I love this for the first 10mins, then it goes straight to sandalwood. It's not unpleasant, but I'd rather hold onto the opening and middle notes.

Carven has the beginnings of a powerful fragrance and then it settles down very quickly. The scent does not stay on all day which for me, is preferred for my office environment. Overall, this is a nice perfume for spring. It has a light peachy nore and the floral notes are slightly more pronounced. It's clean and floral at the same time which is hard to come by. It wakes me up in the morning and I think it smells sophisticated without being too "old" and stale by the end of the day.

To the women who have not tried this fragrance. Please give a try. This is by far one of the better fragrance. I received it a week ago and the vial is almost gone. Everyone I've come in contact with has asked what fragrance I'm wearing. I love it!!! Give it a try and you will love it too.
