Carner Barcelona Costarela description

Carner Barcelona?s Costarela is a lighter, citrusy aquatic scent but with the usual Carner Barcelona unexpected note combinations. Costarela is a paean to the Mediterranean coast, with the refreshing air filling your lungs, but also with the old and ancient scent of boats whose wooden hulls have been bleached for decades by the sun.

It starts out with Carner Barcelona?s signatu

Carner Carcelona was okay. I was disappointed in the actual scent in comparison to the description. It is not something I will be wearing on my person, but rather as a room spray. I do rather like it for that quite well :)

It was ok however just not for me smelled a little musty when you put it but as it was wearing off it smelled cleaner, I would have liked that smell in the beginning. Will not get again.

I like this perfume, but I definitely don't love it. It is unfortunately far more citrus-y than I was hoping. I really don't get a coastal vibe from this scent, which is kind of disappointing. Nevertheless, still a very crisp, fresh scent that seems to last quite well.

Great scent.....
Beautiful composition. Clean, salty citrus style scent. Closely resembles Tommy Bahama 'St Barts'. Could definitely be a signature scent. One easily worn year-round. Sits close to the skin after the first hours, but doesn't disappear. I would say it has a more masculine vibe.

Smell nice. If Narciso for Her and Tocca Margaux had a baby it would smell exactly like this. Even though they try to pass it as a summer scent it is definitely more of a fall smell. I will save the rest of my sample for chilly evenings.

It totally reminds me of the old Estee Lauder perfume my mother use to wear when I was a kid. it was called Youth-Dew. If you know what that smells like you know what this one is.

Smelled like an old lady perfume to me. All of the reviews were so great mentioning it is fresh and "summery". In my opinion it is very heavy, which is neither fresh or "summery". I've been doing this subscription for about a year now and this is definitely one of my least favorite perfumes. Does not smell tropical at all - I do not recommend this perfume.

It start with quite strong top notes, pretty much nothing but Amber and Bergamot, however after burn off it develops into a very pleasant and refreshing, yet warm fragrance, moving from quite feminine notes, to more masculine ones and back. Surely makes you think of a beach day in the Mediterranean. This is the 4rd fragrance I sample from Carner Barcelona and they are truly unique and incredible. I'm buying a full bottle of all!

My favorite so far from Scentbird. Perfect summer fragrance with just the right amount of tangy citrus up front. Warm dry down is wood but not overly masculine like some woody notes can be. Unique but friendly and easy to wear.

More Woody than I want from a perfume. Has a nice aquatic touch to it, but it felt out of place with all the spicy.

This was hard to wear. It was very strong when I put it on and it never really mellowed. It didn't have a great strong smell either. It was similar to ant spray for me. I'm sure there are some good smelling stuff in this perfume but if I can't get past the ant spray smell then I can't do it.

It was everything you described it to be! I was pleasantly shocked! Not sure if this is a unisex fragrance, but it doesn't matter because I love it!

The absolute best fragrance I've received. Smells like summer. Light with a definitive citrus and woody vibe. Imagine standing in the middle of a California state park, trees all around you, the air is cool at around 70 degrees no humidity, someone peels an orange in the vicinity. Thats what it smells like. Clean, crisp, awesome.

I was hesitant at first. The citrus scent was overpowering for me, but the ladies in the office, and the wife all loved it. Since the rave reviews from others is why we buy these scents in the first place (I think) I'm gonna give it 5 hearts. I don't smell my own scent after about 15 seconds anyhow.

Smells nearly identical to Light Blue, imo. Maybe not as tangy (or staying) as Light Blue. Because of this, not as exciting. Sidenote: This is my first order/delivery with Scentbird--not loving the fact the perfume comes in their own packaging, with no labels, names or anything. Basically, this could be anything...

I would consider it more to be female scent than unisex. Gave it away.

I was up in the air at first about this perfume. It has prominent citrus notes but also a little bit of a powdery linger in my opinion. After wearing it for a while I was obsessed. It settles so well on the skin and though it doesn't last all day, I get a good 4-5 hours of wear easily.

Not a bad scent but doesn't remind me of the beach at all, very woodsy which I don't mind, just not what I expected, also doesn't last on my skin at all, constantly having to re apply

Opens with a sand and sun which made me think I was going to love it. But the lovely summery scent disappears almost immediately and turns into simply ambroxan, which is familiar to me because I had Juliette Has A Gun Not A Perfume (pure ambroxan) from an earlier scentbird subscription. So it only gets two stars for longevity, would get 5 if the opening lasted longer!

I am absolutely in love with this fragrance!! It has a surprising lemon zest to it in the beginning but mellows out to a nice smooth almost woodsy scent with something else I cannot put my finger on. And I get compliments every time I wear it which makes it even better!

This is the most exotic perfume I have ever had the pleasure of trying. The orange notes with the warm Amber is simply intoxicating. It smells like what I think Italy smells like and it's wonderful truly wonderful. I feel warm and sexy and sophisticated when I wear this scent.
