There is a passage in The Leopard where the dog digs up part of the garden as Prince Fabricio looks on. I imagine the thought of 14 carnations being dug up by the enthusiastic Bendico, and the scent of earth and surrounding plants are the backdrop for the scene. Add bit of fern. I think it is a ravishing scent. Very clean and uncomplicated but beautiful in a deep manner. By the way, The Leopard is very rich in descriptions of scents around the life of the protagonist, such an inspiring book!
