3.7 out of 5
Smells terrible, like an old lady in a cirtus orchard.
Its a nice scent.
Not for me
25 to 34
Plummy, powdery Oriental Floral, based by an almondy heliotrope. Pleasant and wearable, but a bit too plummy for me. Nice drydown though.
This scent felt aged to me. Not good for a young audience
35 to 44
Pleasant but ordinary
There are hints of the promised scents in the initial spritz, but it rapidly settles to a light, pleasant powder scent. Like baby powder for adults. I will use up this sample, but don't plan to repurchase it ever. Life is too short for boring perfume! ;)
Love the Rose opening and Dry down
45 to 54
Not my smell
very mild scent.
Definitely an everyday perfume. Not too musky but just a light fresh feeling
35 to 44
This is an inoffensive, sweet powdery scent. The opening is definitely more nuanced than the dry down, and I can pick out most notes, particularly the almond, plum, and Tonka. The dry down is really powdery. The freshness of the geranium is lacking for me. Overall, this is a cozy sweater of a scent, and I am glad to have it my collection. Not groundbreaking, but very comforting and pleasant.
35 to 44
Mild plum scent
The scent reminds me of a bowl of prunes/herbal mixture. Tardes should be worn during the fall and winter months.Its not a horrible scent. I tried it for a month. I'd rather fresh scents.
This is definitely an everyday perfume. When I first put it on it comes off really powdery but after wearing for awhile it has a fruity floral smell that I like.
Too floury for my taste, definitely smells good just a little too sweet and floral, not as rustic as I like
35 to 44
I had high hopes for this but am disappointed. Initially it smells like Love's Baby Soft then moves to baby powder. I get powder, followed by a faint wiff of cedar, then powder. I find no plum, no almond, nothing but powder. The silliage is beautifully close and I find the longevity to be perfect for my needs. I'll probably give this to a friend who loves powdery scents, and wait until next month.
45 to 54
My favorite scent so far. Not too feminine, not too masculine either. It has a softness yet elegant tone. Not overpowering, perfect blend that lasts all day and night.
35 to 44
Warm scent for chilly days
I first sprayed this on paper, and it was mostly musky there. On cotton, all notes are detectable and in harmony, the plum and almond lending a sweet richness that’s not entirely gourmand. It’s autumn and the weather is hot one day, and cold the next where I am. Humidity is fluctuating wildly too. On my skin the geranium is too pronounced in warm or hot weather. But on the chilly days this perfume has been lovely; warm, sweet, floral, a little powdery, a little leathery. Long-lasting and noticeable, but generally crowd- and office-safe if you keep to one or two sprays.
18 to 24
Warm Autumn Scent
I really like this scent! It is a very warm scent with hints of musk.
18 to 24
Trusted scent bird and they failed
It smells very nice. A soft balance of almond and plum. Too feminine for me though. I really enjoy the scent but I wouldn’t wear it.
Very nice perfume. I’d say it’s more of a woman’s perfume.
25 to 34
18 to 24
My favorite scent out of the 17 I have received from scentbird, no other scent quite comes close to this one.
If you like fresh from the shower scents try Juliette’s got a gun. The fragrance is called not a perfume. It’s a GREAT fresh just got out of the shower smell. It’s light and fresh. I always get compliments! Good luck. You should try it it’s amazing!
25 to 34
Strong, but very soothing.
17 or under
Strong Almond Scent
I love this perfume. It smells gently sweet (like the almond scent others have noted). And it holds well throughout the day.
A light, slightly powdery, yet surprisingly not grandma like , pleasant scent. It doesn’t last long but is also not overwhelming-pick your poison. I was pleased with this one! Definitely worth checking out if you’re in to a more subtle scent. I only gave four stars because of how quick it fades away. I would say more suited for a feminine scent.
25 to 34
Smells nice, but heavy
I want to preface this by saying that I do think that the fragrance smells nice. However, the scent is just a little heavier than I was hoping for. I would love this scent in the form of a candle. I think that this would be an excellent scent for the right person, just not for me personally!
Delicious & Romantic
Definitely a powdery fragrance, super feminine & light.
45 to 54
Too powdery, and too strong
I’m going to start by saying that I don’t like it when people say a fragrance reminds them of their grandma, but you know what? Tardes reminds me of my grandma. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, as my grandma smelled like Chalimar, but Tardes was a bit too much for me. It smells good, it’s just not for me. I don’t care for anything powdery, which may be the reason I don’t love it, as it’s quite powdery. It is sweet, slightly gourmand, and I can’t imagine it being unisex. It sounds like I don’t care for Tardes, but I really do. It’s just not for me. It’s very sweet and very comforting. Perhaps I’ll come back to it again and love it, but for now-I’m going to put it towards the back of my collection.
45 to 54
I like it
It's powdery light and fresh. I'm ok with it. I probably wouldn't buy it again but I'm glad I got to try it.
25 to 34
25 to 34
I receive compliments every single time I wear this. Everyone I know or encounter loves it, including me! It's sweet (not candy sweet though,) powdery, and slightly musky...almond is definitely the star. Not daring or bold, but so nice. Longevity and sillage are both very good. I can't see this being "unisex;" it's extremely feminine. And for those put off by the mention of celery...don't worry! I've never detected the celery note at all, even after many uses of this.
25 to 34
Not my cup of tea.
55 to 64
Took a while to get use to
It truly takes a while to take shape.
45 to 54
Chose this way back in the beginning when I started Scent bird and didn't like it...If you are a fan of Scentbird like me you have tons of white tubes of fragrance all over your dresser or in a drawer or wherever you keep them...I try to write on the tube so I know what is in it...anyway in a frenzy of going through the mountain of tubes I rediscovered this hidden gem!!! I sprayed it on and it instantly reminded me of D & G Sicily!!!! I LOVE Sicily and sadly can no longer be found at a reasonable price...Started wearing this daily and enjoy it immensely! Considering purchasing the full size!
Smells nice. Its unisex but leans a little too far on the feminine side for my liking. Its very long lasting would make a nice gift for my lady friend
Great so far other than one I didn’t like.
Long Lasting Comfort
When I first encountered Carner Barcelona Tardes, the clean Almond Floral scent came on bold. After a few days, the soft floral tones were still present which were encompassed by an enduring fresh note.
I am not a fan of a powdery fragrance so I rated this low. If you like a powder finish, this would be great for you. It is soft yet very long lasting...well over 12 hours!
Loved it! Powdery, cotton, pleasant scent. The scent is not overbearing and strong. It reminds me of a comforting, clean bed-sheets feel. Suitable for work or weekend wear.
A sultry summer afternoon
This perfume embodies the title ‘Tardes’. Definitely reminds me of a late summer afternoon; warm and free of responsibilities. The scent is rich yet delicate, my only gripe is the sillage. For a small bottle at $180, i prefer the sillage to last throughout the day. Otherwise its a beautiful scent.
Tardes is lovely...
Really enjoying this sweet and powdery scent, I also like that it has a base of soft musk. I've received really nice feedback from both men and women with this one.
Very happy with this scent
This is my favorite scent from Scentbird.
Loved the scent and bought a larger bottle. Smells clean, like out of the shower clean
I picked this fragrance because the name is almost exactly like The Doctor's TARDIS. The perfume did not disappoint! It has a light powdery, musky scent that I would imagine is what The Doctor would smell like. Very elegant and refined.
This is literally why I’ve added it to my queue LOL
Nice and light
Really enjoy this scent, nice and light
To be honest, I was afraid that this scent was a little on the feminine side. However, this scent is more complex than I thought. Body chemistry+this scent=complexity. In this instance, complexity is great!
I was worried by the reviews here about the smell, but honestly, I really love it. I've received a few compliments on how nice I smell too!
The scent says its "Tardes blends floral and wood notes in this scented tribute to a late summer afternoon. Top notes of Egyptian geranium and Bulgarian rose mix with almond, plum and freshly cut rosewood and cedarwood to create this enveloping scent." However to me its very powdery reminiscent of Loves baby soft. The description sounds divine i was a bit disappointed with this one.
Really good light smell!
This one smell's so good and its light but dominant. it's not overpowering and perfect for date nights or a night out on the town. I would deffinetly but it again
I like this scent because it’s subtle yet balanced and it is good for both warm and cool months
I had to wash this off right away. It smells like baby powder and it's way too sweet.
it's nice but eh...
I like it but I wish the scent would last longer. Don't see myself purchasing a big bottle (it was nice to try).
Not a fan
Not a fan, will be giving it away.
Afraid at first, but love it now!!
So when you smell it straight out of the bottle its got a baby powder smell to it, and you think to yourself do I want to smell like baby's butt? But then something magical happens and it transforms (at least for me) into something you'll want to wear all the time. I would call this a soft and gentle perfume, kinda like the fabric softener with the bear and something different. I honestly can't tell you what it is, but I like it. :)
I expected more almond to come through but it is very musky and I don't think I will be wearing it very often.
It smells like candy which might be good for some people but for me it was too strong and made me gag.
I love this scent!!!
Carner Barcelona Tardes
I just received my first perfume after starting my subscription about a week an a half ago. I really like the scent, it’s very feminine and I use it to work at the office. I am so happy! Definitely worth it! 🤗
Almonds with medicine notes
Tardes has many of my favorite notes, but in reality I didn’t like it. It opens with strong smell of almonds with something “medicine” (probably geranium and celery give me that impression). In an hour that medicine note mostly goes away, and scent becomes more pleasant, tonka beans and heliotrope make it warm, woody, powdery. Overall Tardes is an interesting fragrance for almond lovers, but I recommend to try it before buying, it can be disappointing.
Definitely not my scent. I prefer fresh, citrus scents. Not a fan of the musk. It smells like an old lady or old man.
Very smooth fresh scent
I enjoyed its fresh scent that it had definitely my favorite
Starts powdery ends strong
Dont be offput by the beginning. Very feminine entry on my skin but turns after the dry down. Lasting power as well.
I LOVE IT
It's a very refreshing, crisp, clean scent that last all day!!
I was surprised by how sweet this fragrance is when you first put it on. After the initial burst of sweet, you get the more musky undertones. It's described as a tribute to a late summer afternoon, but I got a more fall vibe. It's a little heavy for daytime wear, but it's a great date-night fragrance - a little flirty and mysterious.
Not too bad
Its not super special but the scent is very pleasent.
Such a nice nice fresh smell. Perfect for season. Especially spring/summer.
Not for me
The perfume itself is fine but it's just not for me. I like more citrusy smells and this was nothing like that. My husband said I smelled like an old lady.. won't wear it ever again.
Very sweet/floral/old-lady. Couldn't get it off me fast enough
Great summer scent
This is definitely a amazing summer scent. Although you may have to apply it more than once to keep the fragrance still a great pick.
Best Scent So Far
This is the best scent I've tried so far out of all the scents that have been sent to me. It's very strong and pleasant scent is good for any occasion. Especially any special occasion. I'm a teacher so I enjoy wearing it to work. This scent lasts me throughout the day and even into the night.
This scent is truly great. It's fresh, but not sporty. It's classy, but not heavy. I love everything about it.
On the fence
I first and foremost must say this fragrance smells amazing but I think it would be better suited for a female rather than a man. In my opinion it comes across as to soft and floral.
I tried to like this perfume, but it smells like an old lady. I won't order this one again.
I chose this scent based on the reviews, but really dislike it. I don't like the combo of these notes, especially plum.
Smelled of ALMOND & vanilla
It reminded me of something almond-y from the 80's that I can't quite put my finger on. I didn't care for this at all. It doesn't seem to adhere to any of my preferences. I gave it away after 5 minutes. That's 2 months in a row!
I’m sorry, I hate this
I just don’t like musky woodsy smells. It’s amazing. Just not for my nose pallet
This scent came across very powdery with woodsy notes being a bit musky. While it is a unisex scent, I found it too heavy for myself, and my husband found it too 'old lady' for himself.
Very nice scent. Compliments every time I wear it.
I have been looking for a powdery noted fragrance. So love the elements in this one. I absolutely will be purchasing this! Simply beautiful!
Not for me
I didn't care for this one on my skin at all. It smells very powdery and the wood scent never came through. I generally keep the bottle so I can try again later but this one, I threw away. Sorry- just didn't mix with my chemistry
This is a super heavy scent that reads very powdery. Not the biggest fan. Stays put all day though!
Not my type of scent
The smell was very soft scent
My New Scent
When I first sprayed this on I thought it smelled like cough syrup and powder. I was sure that I was going to hate it. Then magically a few minutes later it turned heavenly. It does have a strong powdery smell, but I love that smell on me. It has so many subtle layers and works perfectly with my body chemistry. The other thing I love about this perfume is that it last all day and into the night with just a couple sprays in the morning. It is perfect for the office as it isn't overwhelming, so it will not give anyone else a headache.
This perfume smells like a sweet Johnson’s baby soap. I love Johnson’s soap and loved this too. It was not very strong however and the scent did not last long on me.
Absolutely unique... Not like any of my other scents... I have been looking for something brand new and I have found it...!!
It’s a little too masculine for me.
Nice smell that lasts all day!
Not what I expected
As I went to write the review I noticed that this is a scent for both male and female which explains a lot...I’m definitely more of a fan of feminine scents, I do occasionally like a bold spicy scent but this was not it for me, the initial fragrance is not bad but I don’t like how it smells after awhile
I absolutely hated the smell
Carner Barcelona scents are everything!
I can’t get over how good Tardes (and Rima if you’ve not tried it) smell! There is so many subtle layers and notes, and this one is another strong classic scent, though a bit powdery in the background compared to Rima. I personally love both scents...just enough spicy notes to be really interesting, but not overwhelming and the dry down is amazing. This is not a perfume for beginners, it is full-bodied and complex. I stay away from powdery notes as a general rule, but the vibe from this perfume overall is one of the very few that can get away with it for me. If you don’t like anything powdery and want to try out this amazing perfumer, add Rima to your queue now...neither will disappoint!
Well, I love it...
I think it's beautiful. It's light and not overpowering, feminine, powdery and woodsy at the same time. However, in the week that I've been wearing it on a daily basis, no one else has mentioned it. That's not good in my book. But, it does make me happy, so it's a struggle from within.
Yes, It’s a Powdery Scent
A soft, feminine, sweet, and not too mature of a scent. Perfect for sweater weather and rainy days. At first spray, it reminded me of a dried down version of BBW’s Japanese Cherry Blossom but in a concentrated form. No need to re apply. This lasts all day. I will definitely purchase a full size.
Warm, soft almond dream
I agree, this scent is powdery, but there are some powder lovers out there...and we’re not all ancient old ladies! On my skin, this scent is mostly almond, vanilla, and musk. Very soft, very cozy and delicious! It would be safe in an office environment because I can’t see it being offensive to anyone. At the same time it’s a good choice for more intimate occasions. Love this one. IMO, more of a feminine scent.
Gross. I want my money back.
This scent is not my go to scent. It is very strong and powdery. I don't really like this one. It is just too strong and over powering.
Smells very powdery and overwhelming. Definitely a scent for an older woman,
I would agree there is a powdery scent to it, but I think it is absolutely beautiful. It has a warm, fall scent to it, with a touch of sweetness. I love it!
Really nice scent. Had lots of compliments
Mmmmm... just spritzed this on and I am in love. Smells heavenly. Light enough to wear everyday. I can't stop smelling my wrists! I need a full size of this one!
This is a very powdery fragrance, which surprised me. I would put this more on the feminine spectrum - not saying that it couldn't or wouldn't work on a guy just know that you're getting a powdery scent. I am not a fan of powdery fragrances, but this I like. It's almost intoxicating. I definitely wouldn't wear it every day, but it will be my go to when I'm looking for a sophisticated, fresh, powdery fragrance.
Got this in the mail today and spritz it before running errands. I got so many compliments. This is by far my favorite perfume. Smells fresh and woodsy but not spicy. Almost like anise and powdery.
I could see why some would love this scent, it's just not for me. It's very powdery, smells like straight baby powder to me. It's a lighter daytime scent that would work for the office if this scent is your style.
It's got a bit of a sharpness to it that cuts through the musky scent, but overall its nice. Probably not for everyday.
I like this fragrance. Initially, I was not sure from the opening. From the dry down, I get a nice musky and slightly floral scent that is complimented by almondy plum. Overall, the notes blend beautifully. It smells uniquely delicious and classic with a twist.
Wow, was my first reaccion!! It smells soooo beautiful, so unique... its kind of unexplainable. Exotic, Flirty, Desirable... I need a full size bottle!! ❤
I adored this one! Ignore the initial blast, the best has yet to come. The almond notes are there, but I get a lot more of the heliotrope and tonka. The plum note...this is a note you will catch in the air around you throughout the day, but will not be able to smell on your skin and clothes. At least that was the case with me. That being said this is a fairly soft, feminine fragrance that is fairly long lasting, and full of surprises. Totally worth a try!
Didn't love it. It was a nice soft scent but a little too powdery for me.
Not my cup of tea. Reminds me of baby powder.
Probably one of my favorite scents that I've found so far.
It starts off with almost a leather scent, powdery and floral, very nice. The leather scent begins to fade into a nice almondish scent. Love it.
Reminds me of a Mediterranean getaway!
This is slightly too powdery and makes me a little nauseous. Reminds me of something I smell on women who smoke to cover up the smoke smell. I thought it would smell more clean, but its just powdery.
If you love Viva La Juicy Gold Couture and want something similar that's a little more grown-up, Tardes is your almond goddess in heels. Sweet, woody, vanilla and an aquatic hint.
Many of the notes were fighting each other at once to come forth. It did transport me a moment after the initial discord, though.
I love it! It's very refreshing. I didn't really think of this as a unisex fragrance. It smells very feminine to me.
This is the perfect laid-back summer scent. A date time pick for me, rather than date-night but the smell is a smooth summery sweet, and definitely flirty. I like that it smells like "summer" without smelling like sunscreen or coconut.
LOVE THIS SCENT!!!! Just wish it would last longer.
This one surprised me. When I opened the package I immediately thought "oh no..." It definitely has a sweet powdery scent (which I usually do not like) but it also seems fresh and "fancy" after wearing it. It kinda reminds me of tropical/summer smells, however at the same time I keep thinking it smells like a fresh baby... My husband asked if I had started laundry so he thinks it smells similar to that I guess. He said he really liked it. I can't decide what I think about it but I do like it and I will wear it. It has very good staying power also. It turned out to be a good surprise and it's a scent I would have never tried if I had only smelled it from the bottle.
My favorite perfume. I love the warmth of Tardes and it last throughout the day. Musk scents work well with my skin. I feel a bit more sexy when I wear this. I even caught a guy getting a whiff when I was in front of him on the escalator.
Delicious, powdery almonds. I find this to be very feminine. Although it may be better suited for the fall months, I find this amazing even in the blistering heat of the southwest. Somehow, it makes me feel more put together... You can't go wrong with this one!
This is a soft woody scent. The almond adds a subtle bitterness, heliotrope, plum, and tonka adds a smooth sweetness , the rose makes it cozy, and the woodsiness is there, but it's not pungent or cloying. It's a very soft and fragile perfume. Sillage isn't great, you can definitely use a couple sprays and not over do it. Powdery in a way I like and I usually don't like powder.
My boyfriend told me it smelled like old lady- much more powdery than I expected.
This is my favorite sample yet out of over 12 I have received. It smells delicious... that is what someone actually told me. It does not project and is a personal scent. I received this compliment from someone that was hugging me. This has moved into one of my top fragrances. Top notes: geranium, rose, rosewood, and almond. Heart: cedar, plum and celery. Base: tonka, musk and heliotrope.
Absolutely beautiful! It reminds me of a lovely vacation in Venice.
