Carner Barcelona Cuirs description

Carner Barcelona’s Cuirs is one of the most complex leather scents we carry. It is filled with an seemingly unending panorama of woods and spices, along with rare grace notes like woody amyris and dusky, churchy, nagarmotha. There’s even a trace of violet in the heart. And for all the attention to detail in each phase, Cuirs is a stately, refined and fluid leather scent that will open up mo

Old lady, powdery
I’m sorry, I’m not a fan of this. It is strong and not in a good way. Powdery, old lady. I’m going to remove the maker of this perfume from my queue. I had other scents.

Close second to Oddity
Like another reviewer said, this may be my new favorite, right behind Oddity. The leather is comforting and not overbearing, the woods are just right when so many go soapy on me.

Comforting
This is a perfect winter scent. It’s warm and cozy, like a soft blanket on an old leather couch in front of a fire on a cold night.

A favorite from this House
To me this is all about sandalwood and oud with some leather thrown in. It's earthy and woody, yes, but the leather here is more on the animalic side and reminds me much more of sweaty skin than a leather jacket. Having said that, it's still a classy fragrance, not so provocative that you couldn't wear it with a suit. The (presumably synthetic) sandalwood used here is one of my favorites and it does, indeed, smell a bit like Play-Doh, as I saw someone else mention. But I love the smell of Play-Doh so this is a positive, if you ask me. :)

Fresh Woods
I love this. It is now my #2, 1st being Oddity. Curis is like a walk through a dark forest but you can see the light above the tree tops. Long lasting, turns into a fresh clean skin scent hours after original sprays.

Not bad, but not WOW
This fragrance is not anything super significant. It is a common scent with hints of play dough and a baby powder dry down that last hours. I want more spice from it, but the spice and light oud is here and gone quickly. I would say the opening is the best part of this fragrance. Definitely not a bad scent, just not outstanding.

A combination of Joop! Homme and Play-doh
That first spray has a punch of alcohol-y chemical-y smell which dissipates quickly. It reminds me of Joop! Homme except that it doesn't seem as sweet or candy-ish and a little more spicy. In the background there's a subtle chemical smell that wants to be earthy but strongly reminds me of Play-doh. I like Cuirs but I would rather wear the Joop! and reminisce about fun times in the 90s.

Spicy Woody Oud
My wife likes this on me, and that's generally good enough for me. It's a nice spicy woody oud scent, and it does perform quite well. I'll be honest, I really hate Palo Santo from this house (it smells nothing like the wood), but I was pleased with this one. If my wife keeps complimenting this one, I may have to consider a full bottle. However, I will say it probably won't be ideal for work because it's too strong (in a corporate environment).

God that's strong
I'm so shocked that there are so many positive reviews for this scent. It's far too strong for me. It has a vaguely woody/leathery scent but it's also very very sweet. I found the scent so overpowering that I had to shower to completely rid myself of the scent. I sprayed it in the air to show a friend and she had to leave the room. Not a fan.

Cuirs
This scent is pleasant enough. However, when I sprayed it on to my wrist it seemed to almost immediately dissipate. It was like my skin just absorbed it and there was nary anything left to smell. I can't give Cuirs a great review. I did give it to my son to try and he likes it. While it contains notes that I prefer in a perfume, it has more of a masculine flair than I want.

Very clean smelling. Very inviting. Hints of vanilla, lavender, and leather. Nice on a summer night with a button up shirt or a casual tshirt.

Aunt Marie's Perfume
Unfortunately not my favorite. Kinda reminded me of the perfume worn by your Aunt who comes to visit, and knocks you out with her scent when she hugs you. And days later your still smell her when you walk into the living room.

Heavy and Old-fashioned (not in a good way)
Really not what I'd expected. It's very heavy from first spray and throughout the day. It reminds me of an old-timey, dapper mans scent.... you know the kind... like grandpa doused himself in every Sunday before church. There's a familiarity to the classic old spice aftershave, though it's a bit heavier and not nearly as crisp. It left me with a headache.

Heavier version over Amouage Journey Man
Very haven't animalic. Lots of character and manly but not for everyone! Would not buy full bottle.

ok but not great
Nice enough scent but seems more fitted to spraying on the sheets, then wearing as it fades quickly on the skin...

Very nice for a date
If your going out on a date and going to be close and personal to someone this is a good scent to put on. The sweet cinamon scent gives of a comforting mood and it get balanced nicely with the leather. Not really a daily cologne that youd put on a sunny day but rather something for a summer afternoon at a quite place with a special someone

Heavy Leather
The scent is heavy and flat. Smoky, not crisp. It smells strongly of leather and nagarmotha. I did not smell patchouli or cedar. It lingered after I sprayed it and for me it was unpleasant. This is not a feminine scent. I sprayed it lightly on my boyfriend believing the strong leather scent would be more pleasing on him. It delivered the same aromas on him as it did on me. He left home for a few hours and after returning he let me know he did not like the fragrance. He still occasionally caught the fragrance and it was not anything he wanted to be wearing.

Definitely leans more on the feminine side
I'm a huge fan of unisex scents, but this one definitely is not a very masculine scent. That said, it still works. First spray left me a bit confused, as I wasn't getting too much leather. Actually had a slight play doh undertone, will be interested to see if anyone agrees. Though, like most strong scents, give it time on your skin and it warms up with a nice powdery undertone. It is certainly unique, it works well in an office setting. I've found that this one last longer on clothing rather than on skin, oddly enough. My day to day jacket carries this scent for at least three days after and doesn't get stale like some scents on clothes. Worth a try, but not my favorite.

Its ok
Cuirs is a scent that was recommended because I LOVE the Michael Kors Sexy Amber and I guess it fell within the same scent "family". When I first tried it, it was very cedar-y/pine-y. But that faded after I wore it for awhile and it faded into a softer, warmer woody scent. Its a little masculine but I like more musky, manish scents. Id recommend this for others if they dislike flowery, fruity scents, like me.

Sexy
Really nice. Smoky and rich without being so intense that it gives me a headache. Not so penetrating that you offend everyone around you who hates patchouli, but thrilling up close. Surprising light sweetness as it fades.

Replusive
This has a replusive smell. Made my wife dry heave. I did a 3 month trial to see how I liked the service, with this being my first delivery. Im contemplating cancelling the next two months and asking for a refund.

Because you didn’t like a fragrance? You chose it... just sayin’. You said it was your first delivery... why not choose scents you are sure you like? Seems logical to me.

Definitely not what i was expecting ...
To me it smells like an old lady inside of a old dusty church. I'm a huge fan of sandalwood and leather fragrances which is why i picked this one but this is just terrible in my opinion. This is not for men this is for mature women that wear big hats and go to church on Sundays. 2/10 for me and i definitely wont be getting this again. Hope this helped!

Nice, but not what I was expecting
I'm a girl who likes bold, unexpected fragrances, typically unisex. I love leathers, and incense notes, but this one was a little all over the place. I get the leather, but it was a bit confusing with everything else going on. I was hoping for more sillage and longevity as well. Lasted on clothes, not on my skin at all after about an hour.

It isn't "The One", but it is one of the top ones!
I have been a member for 6 months. In this time I have received three phenomenal colognes, Cuirs is one of these. Cuirs is sneaky sexy, clean, and easy to wear anywhere. I fell in love the first time and never looked back. The best way to describe it is Cuirs is how I "want" to smell!

Perfect for all those who like warm woody oriental scents.
Thanks to the interaction of woods, amber, musk, oud and spices the scent remains mild as a whole, without losing its spiciness and vitality. The perfume is very long lasting on me. Over time, it becomes only softer.

I really like this. It's spicy, musky, and then there's a little hint of sweet at the end. It lasts a long time, too. I want to try this on my husband and see how he likes it.

Wow, this is a really nice fragrance. I do see similarities in the Black Afgano but I own both & did a side by side comparison & of course Black Afgano is king. Almost identical upon initial spray but after about 5 minutes Cuirs goes in a sweeter direction & it doesn't last nearly as long as the Afgano but good God what an incredible fragrance in its own right. This also reminds me of 8 & Bob's Egypt which I also own. The projection is incredible at around 8 feet & longevity is roughly 6 hours on my skin. Definitely fbw.

I only smell one note and one note only: sandalwood. If i wanted to smell only like sandalwood I would save my money and just use my pure essential oil. This perfume is not balanced, and today a coworker literally told me i smell like a "dirty hippy"..... not exactly what I was going for. Also, for someone who does want to smell only like sandalwood, this doesnt last long.

Very nice unisex scent. It had a bite to it 8n the beginning and wasn't sure if I'd like it. Once the initial jolt died down it was wonderful. I'm a hippie bohemian kind of girl and this scent was great.

This fragrance is very similar to the very popular Black Afgano. I much prefer this much more affordable interpretation. To me this comes off as a very elegant, mature, and masculine fragrance.
