Rated 5 out of 5 by SoccerMomSuzie GORGEOUS!!!
I am a fan of Royal Apothic's perfumes- the packaging is beautiful and the scents are rich and unique, and let me be the first to say that they have really outdone themselves this time!! At first glance I didn't really know what to expect from a Carnation perfume since the flowers themselves don't really smell, but this scent is absolutely stunning. It is light and floral but strong enough to stand alone as a winter fragrance. I am always instantly attracted to Royal Apothic's beautiful packaging and I am so happy to add this to my vanity. I have found my new signature scent! Can't wait to try more!!
Thank you Anthropologie and Royal Apothic!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BridgetJones Can't beat the quality for the price!
I sampled Rose, Peony, Carnation, and Thistle. All of them smelled just like the notes described, which was really great. I didn't expect to love them all, but I did. For the price, you can't get perfumes that smell better than this. The bottles are gorgeous. I did notice the tops had chipped, but it's probably because they are just display bottles. But they are still pretty and unique even when chipped to the point where it wouldn't bother me. I tried them on several hours ago, and they are still plenty strong on my skin. No complaints about longevity. I think English Rose is my favorite. It's a very sweet rose. I like the minty green of the thistle. I liked the pink scent of the peony, kind of reminded me of sweet pea by Bath and Body Works, but better quality. And the Carnation perfume smelled a bit like vanilla and orange, sweeter than expected, my least favorite, but still nice. I don't think you can go wrong buying any of these.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ChiCaliGirl Hot house peony
I tried a lot of these in store & hot house peony was my favorite. For reference, I tend to like warm&spicy fragrances such as alien & tf black orchid. This is listed as a fresh fragrance but I also think it has some spicy undertones. The packaging is beautiful, and it comes in a quality wooden box. But the cap is ceramic and is super hard to pull off, way harder than it should be. Also, I find this perfume only lasts about 2 hours on the skin which for me is a deal breaker. Love the scent & packaging but will probably return due to it having no lasting power.
