Malmaison is one of the most famous fragrances of this old English house. One of the reasons is that it is based on carnation absolute. As I stated before during this time, carnation was a very popular scent. If perfumers were creating a floral fragrance, then carnation was definitely one of the main ingredients.
Malmaison actually originated in France (carnation is cultivated in the south of France) but because the house of Floris was so popular and known for delivering exquisite fragrances that it was most successful in Britain.
This floral oasis of a spicy persuasion has top notes of cinnamon, cloves and lemons. The heart notes are centered perfectly with Malmaison carnation, rose and ylang ylang and finally the delectable cedar musk, patchouli and vanilla gives it a creamy mixture.
