Carner Barcelona El Born description

Carner Barcelona?s El Born gets its name from the most ancient part of the city; a neighborhood of 14th century churches and medieval cobblestone streets, wine bars and rare bookstores. In short, a place where ancient history meets modern-day romance.

El Born, the perfume, is as heady and magical as the first time you get to stamp your passport. It?s cuddly warm, richer than melti

Great fragrance
This is a vanilla bomb to start that settles into a warm inviting scent. If one is only accustomed to designer scents from the mall, this will be a shocking introduction to the world of European fragrance. This scent is straightforward, classy, warm and fades in three hours.

Delicious scent...wish it lasted longer!
Incredible scent for gourmand lovers....vanilla and honey with just the right level of winter spice. My only reason for not giving 5 stars was that (at least on my skin) the longevity was poor for what is supposed to be a high end fragrance. If this lasted longer I would immediately purchase a full size bottle. I recommend adding this to your queue to see how it works with your particular chemistry. Great winter/holiday fragrance.

Smoky, sweet and spicy fragrance, great for fall/winter. Reminds me of Maison Martin Margiela By The Fireplace or Broken Theories by Kerosene. Well blended quality perfume.

i take the train to work and i wore El Born today. I had 2 women bury their heads in my chest and inhale the smell of the cologne. They raved about it. And i got so many compliments at work as well from men and women alike. I love this scent. Perfect for the season

Wow, this one is so good. I haven't been so impressed with a scent in a long time. It's resinous and medicinal, like an herbal ointment but also so comfortingly vanillic. Can't stop sniffing, want more scents like this one!

El Born is a delicious gourmand fragrance. At first spray I smell the delicious balsamic benzoin mixed with the vanilla. I also detect the honey, citruses, Australian sandalwood and heliotrope. Dries down to a very delicious balsamic fragrance. It is very well composed and a winner for a gourmand lover.

This is an awesome creamy vanilla plumb scent. Not too masculine or feminine. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Unisex all the way. Amazing sweet iris laced with vanilla but you can smell the quality of this fragrance. If you are a man looking for compliments on a date from a woman this will do it because this is something they would wear as well.

It's a little strong when you first spray it. After 15-30 minutes it does mellow out into a very warm elegant scent. To me its kind of exotic. Excellent for fall/winter. I do think it's more masculine than feminine though. I wouldn't wear it to work/daytime. (After 5/date night)

If I could give this scent no stars I would. This scent smells horrible. Unfortunately, Scentbird doesn't do returns or exchanges.

Nice! This one is marketed for men as well as women and this guy likes it. It is strong, so a little goes a long way - be careful. It is NOT too sweet or floral at all. It is a nice fresh scent with the smell of vanilla, sandalwood and musk. Nice start for this program!

A cloying scent. It was this perfume that solidified my dislike for gourmand fragrances. The problem with most gourmands is that they lack complexity. El Born is a vanilla bomb without the added depth of a wood or a musk. If you want a gourmand that has some complexity, I would recommend L'instant by Guerlain, which has a nice underlying musk that pairs well with its chocolaty sweetness.

A fragrance with a very nice vanilla scent with a touch of honey and little bit of powder. It blends together nicely giving it a smooth and creamy aroma. A great fragrance for Fall/Winter.

This scent was great! It will last most of the day after only 4 sprays. Even though the vanilla scent is a little strong, it is not overpowering. This scent kind of reminds me of cinnamon buns. I was complemented a lot at work and home. I would get this again.

Overall nice fall/winter scent. Smells like fresh baked sugar cookies with a hint of black licorice. Powdery dry down. Unique, but I get a non masculine grandma vibe from this one. I respect the composition, but it's a no go for me.

This one is a difficult to one to describe. The very first fragrance that hits me and everyone who's smelled it is a very strong vanilla, almost like a black licorice mixed with vanilla or coffee. I cannot put my finger on it but it is distinct and powerful vanilla smell at first. After that hits and the scent matures I believe this is where the Peru balsam starts to show up as a amber/resin fragrance that begins to mix and cut down the vanilla potency. It becomes a much softer fragrance after the initial few minutes of wearing it. When first putting it on I got a lot of complaints of putting to much on or it being overpowering. Within about 30 minutes those same people are now asking if I had sprayed something over it and now am getting compliments about it. You may dislike the first few seconds of this fragrance but give it time.

More to add: I never received one compliment when wearing this. It's a spicy, kinda unique scent but there are others who do spicy better.

This starts out strong and very spicy vanilla. I?m just not sure which spice that is. I guess, the Benzoin. This develops into a very intriguing, complex scent but it also becomes much more subtle. By the end of day, one has to very close to you to be able to smell El Born any more. By bedtime, all that?s left is a hint of vanilla musk. I never smelled lemon at any stage. If I had to compare this to something I?m familiar with, that would be Gucci 2 but El Born is much more powdery and floral compared to that.

This scent is strong and lasts for a while. On my skin, it comes off more woodsy, which isn't always the best thing. But it is a really sexy scent. I wish it were a touch lighter scent wise, but thats a personal preference.
