The carnation has not always been revered as a worthy flower, often mislooked since it has been seen time and time again as inexpensive and not very high-end, but I truly believe this is one of the most overlooked and underrated flowers ever! Not only are they an amazing substitute for the expensive flowers such as peonies and roses, they have one of the most amazing scents! I have looked everywhere for a carnation fragrance. It is such a beautiful, simple, and clean scent and I await the day when a company will come and bottle it up to sell! The next time you are in a flower shop, take a moment to give these beautiful blooms another look and a whiff, as they not only make beautiful additions to centerpieces but would make one of the best-selling perfumes! I believe it!
