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 melting hand-made…

This is not for a women at all. Luckily I can give this to my husband to use but I would not recommend this for a lady at all. I’m very disappointed because the deception of this perfume is not correct at all.

It is so frustrating to see so many reviews with "old lady" in them. Can we please retire that as a way to describe a fragrance? What does an old lady smell like? My grandmother always smelled wonderful, and I am also, at 54, a grandma and I would like to think my grandchildren don't think I smell like an "old lady," whatever that smells like. It's really very offensive and I wish fellow reviewers could come up with something more descriptive and less insulting to women with more than 25 or 30 years of life experience under their belts. "Old lady" doesn't really tell others what the fragrance smells like and it's a rather alienating way to describe mature women.

Vanilla, but with a bite.
First hit is pure vanilla, and it does remind me of coffee latte scent burners. But others don't seem to notice it. Then the woodsy sort of earthy undertones come out making it very unisex. My husband took one sniff and said, "You might have to fight me for that one." (And he doesn't wear cologne, so that says something.) It's definitely in my rotation but doesn't make me want to keep smelling it all the time. Good, wearable, definitely unisex.

Complex and wonderful
This is not a gourmand to my nose, although the open is fig and honey forward in a fabulous way. It seems to change almost hour by hour in the drydown, first heliotrope then sandalwood with a creamy vanilla undertone. When the jasmine stepped forward, I almost died. Long lasting, mysterious, complex...it’s going in rotation with black orchid as my signature scent. Edited with new info: I’ve been wearing this for three days now and I have to comment on longevity, which is phenomenal. It is still present 24 hours after two sprays, and the lingering skin scent is a truly luxurious, layered vanilla with a hint of wood. The opening blast is bergamot-heavy, but after 20 minutes or so, it settles into a decadent scent. At first I thought this was the perfect unisex fragrance, but once it fully matured as a skin scent, it is hands down a seductive, feminine fragrance. I really love this.

Smells good,doesn't seem to last
I wasn't sure at first if I would like it but after a few uses I enjoyed it. Only problem is that it doesn't seem to last. I usually apply in the am on my way out to work. I work almost exclusively with men and am always told how good I smell especially first thing in the morning. Nothing after wearing daily for a week. But the smell does linger on my coat

Good but sweet
I really like this cologne...it's a super unique vanilla aroma. Has good longevity which is nice and is potent. My biggest concern is that it is sooo sweet, almost smells like vanilla cupcakes or cake or ice cream. It's unique but not really my style to wear a whole lot. Definitely unique and should be tried.

Must try
This is one of my favorite scents. This is a great scent for a guy trying out sweeter smells. It has honey and vanilla notes in it but its masculine at the same time. I wore it out on a warm afternoon to a museum and the scent really lasted through the night. Got many compliments. Perfect for a brunch date of a classy night out.

Intoxicating
At first I thought this was too masculine for me, but after it settled, I fell in love. I find it quite intoxicating- it’s different than anything else I have but not overpowering. You can’t quite put your finger on what scent you’re smelling, but you’re inexplicably drawn to it. This is mysterious and unique enough to become my new signature fragrance

Sweet and soft fragrance
This fragrance is amazing! It smells like a fragrance you would wear on a date night and it smells really cozy. This is a fragrance that would make someone want to cuddle next to you since it is very soft and it's not screaming at you. When I smell this, I'm smelling a sweet and lightly floral scent but it's got enough of a kick that it can be worn by a man. If you are into sweet/soft/floral scents, I would recommend this one.

Yuck!
It literally smells like a dirty old bathroom. You know the bathrooms that are old and have that gross smell to them of possible urine scum, then they try to cover the smell up?! However no matter what they do you only make it worse by covering it up. That is exactly what it smells like. From the moment I put it on which was very very little I made a face of disgust along with my friend standing next to me. There was nothing I could do to get rid of that horrid smell it made me sick. Literally sick to my stomach and gave me a headache. However regardless my optimism does get the best of me I thought it would taper down later. Nope still gross not as strong.. So it is in the trash I wouldn't even consider giving it to anyone I know or associate with just so I never have to smell it again. However that is just my personal opinion.

You should never throw perfume in the trash. You could sell it on Ebay, even for $2 plus shipping. You could make the day or someone on the other side of the country. I have donated perfumes that don't work for me, it's very unlikely you will actually encounter the person who buys it out and about.

great scent for me
this is probably one of my favorite scents that I have tried so far. it is pretty sweet as others have mentioned but on me the dry down was more woodsy, with some of the sweetness remaining and thats the part I liked the most about it. it almost reminds me of a sweeter Amouage Interlude Man. For me I found the projection to be average in the winter, I would expect it to improve in the summer. On me the scent easily last for a full 8 hours or longer. For me I think this makes a great date night scent and you aren't wanting to go full on beast mode with interlude man.

Super appreciated your "beast mode" description of Interlude Man and how it relates to El Born. I just got Interlude Woman (and I love my El Born) and I completely get what you are saying. Both fragrances are very complex and layered; so often, the top, middle, and base notes just wind up feeling mushed together in mass-market scents. But I so appreciate that the niche perfumers like Carner Barcelona and Amouage get it right—these fragrances really do evolve in a very defined progression over time. And that's what makes them so wonderful. I'm actually trying to convince my significant other to give El Born a try. I suspect I would really love this on a man.

Ultimately too masculine
I love the first hour of El Born. It's a complex swirl of sweet vanilla, boozy nuts and fragrant wood that develops and deepens. It's gourmand and deliciously unisex. After that, it smells like linear wood for the rest of the day, reminding me of cut planks at best. This scent would probably pair better with someone else's (male) body chemistry.

Little too spicy for me apparently. I am pretty picky when it comes to perfumes and this is my first month on scentbird. Will see how this goes. I like more citrus and floral and less spice. Wasn't overly strong just the notes didn't suit my tastes. Could still smell it on my arm some the next am after I tried it the night before. So fare quality. I will be giving this one away. Hope I do better next month!

Highly sophisticated Vanilla Gourmand Fragrance.
El Born, named after a ritzy Barcelona neighborhood district, is sweet Vanilla galore. Its projection is respectfully moderate but its sillage is amazing. Still lingers on your clothing from the previous day. Laundry has never smelled this great! The main note is of sweet almond vanilla. Can be worn in warm or cold days, day or night. If you're fond of JPG "Le Male", or Dior's Hypnotic Poison, Chopard's Casmir, or Trouble by Boucheron--- this is the fragrance for you. What makes this versatile is that it is well balanced to be unisex. Personally, clearly the best of the lineup from niche House of Carner Barcelona.

Your comparison to Gaultier's Le Male is intriguing; I never made that connection myself, but now that you said it, I see a distant relationship. I do agree that its longevity is amazing. Sillage for me isn't ginormous, but it definitely makes a statement the first 5-6 hours after applying. I go back and forth between this and Cuirs as CB's best...but I think this house does rich, complex, and heavy fragrances better than lighter ones. I think Tardes and Costarela are "nice" in a predictable way, but they don't excite me like El Born and Cuirs.

Give it a minute
When it came in the white case, I first thought I had been sent a perfume by mistake. And when I sprayed it on, I also wondered if the light scent was more for a woman than a guy. I didn't dislike it; just thought it smelled sweet. But after it dried down, I really liked it. The only negative for me is that the scent doesn't last. By the time I got to work and was able to ask a female co-worker what she thought of it, she could barely smell it. If it lasted longer, I'd have given it a higher score. Maybe they need to come out with an Intense version.

Not my favorite
This scent was very highly reviewed by several different people on YouTube who I generally agree with. That was why I chose it. But in my opinion, the initial scent of El Born smells very much like a vanilla latte. What many people apparently refer to as "tobacco" smells a lot more like coffee to me. That coffee smell dries down though and I'm left with a slight vanilla scent. I don't really dislike it, but it's far from a favorite and it'll probably end up unused at the back of a cabinet.

Sweet vanilla, honey, and musk. I normally run quickly away from musky scents but in El Born the musk creates more of a smokey boozy feel and I love it! Reminds me a bit of my much loved Kilian Back to Black if you added a shot of (good) musk. So happy I tried this.

There aren't many fragrances that have really surprised me, but this is one. El Born is an absolutely gorgeous composition. Warm, inviting, alluring, mysterious.. sweet vanilla and honey give this fragrance an almost gourmand feel, while the citruses and fig brighten up the overall profile into something that just has to be experienced to believe. Man, woman, masculine or feminine.. whatever you are (or prefer).. do your a favor and add this to your queue.

Different take on gourmands
Wow! This fragrance has depth and sophistication written all over it! The best way to describe this fragrance is vanilla soaked in booze then dipped in honey. But it's not overly sweet. You can definitely detect the resins in it that make the vanilla a bit mature. Amazing for the cold fall nights/ winter. Great for semi formal, formal events and date nights.

Sweet fig
A solid sweet fragrance. Vanilla, fig and warm compliments. As a male, I wanted something with a little more bite, but the people around me (jammed in coupe as we head off to lunch from the office) complimented me on it—so it's not offensive, unlike David. Summer. Small places and close quarters...kind of like...well, sitting under a tree on a sunny day in Barcelona.

Really nice stuff here. The vanilla note in the beginning is really nice but I'm shocked to learn there's no tobacco in here cause right out of the gate I sense a strong scent of tobacco... like a boozy kind of vibe from it too. Just an all around beautiful scent. Perfect fall & winter scent that's smack in the middle between masculine and feminine. A very mysterious home run from CB! LOVE IT!

Rich but subtle.
This is a very classy gourmand fragrance. Supremely unisex but I would say leans masculine. The longevity is excellent with subtle sillage. Very well made. Intimate is an appropriate term. The notes listed are very indicative of what you will get though into the drydown it is very woody and musky which makes this more masculine to me. I really enjoy it.

Favorite scent so far
So far, this is my favorite fragrance I've tried from Scentbird. The opening gives you a very sweet warm honey smell with some spice in there as well; almost smells like a little black licorice mixed in, too. It dries into a very decadent smell of vanilla/honey. Balsam and sandalwood mixes in beautifully as well. I'll probably be purchasing this one for myself, I love it that much!

Cremmmm bro lay
I must admit I was excited to try this scent. So when the mail arrived and I spied a familiar black package, my heart skipped a beat or two. Now admittedly when choosing a fragrance, vanilla notes are not my go to. Normally I find them to be a tad sweet and a bit artificial... not to mention overpowering. Plus I'm 40 and that just isn't a good look. First impression: "oh @#*%$, what have I gotten myself into." Honey vanilla wofted around me encasing me in a decodently strong n heady trance. Yet once the dry down started and my ph began to meld n play, a kind of sweet magic happened. Quiet jasmine flower and silky musk started to breath. Now dancing together with the earnestly mellowed sweet-vanilla-spiced-fig, I just can't get enough. I'd spray it sparingly for it does go on heady strong and, at least for me, a little goes a long way.

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.
