About El Born

El Born was launched in the Spring of 2014 and contains notes of Lemon, Bergamot, Honey, Fig, Benzoin, Vanilla, Sandalwood and Musk

Carner Barcelona say

The winding cobbled streets flow seamlessly into the old stones of the medieval times, witness of Barcelona’s history. Plants and flowers tumble down from tiny decorated balconies sharing protagonism with vintage stores, pastelerías, cafeterías, old bookshops, wine bars… A group of old friends playing cards, youngsters discussing at the edge of the fountains, tourists enjoying a glass of champagne… this is El Born, a unique atmosphere where even the XIVth century church Santa Maria de Mar seems to want to go unnoticed just being another spectator of the show.

Reviews of El Born

Stardate 20170425:

Don't like this one. Has similar accords as one of the Afteliers. Fig one perhaps. Just dislike it. Rotten fruits up top and too dry and dusty later on.
I think fig is not for me.

What a lovely fragrance this is. it reminds me of Autumn. When i smell it i get the image of sitting in a patio of a dessert shop having vanilla ice cream with raisins on an early autumn humid day surrounded by some plants. then it starts raining after a long dry period which leads to that unique smell of the water mixing in with the dust on the plants and the ground.
this is not a vanilla dominated scent by any means.
The performance is moderate
Overall Rating : 8.8 / 10

What is one person's delicious gourmand is another person's wretched vanilla bomb. Very sweet, vanilla-dominant, foody. A kind of toasted note and smoky note add some interest, but I just find it too sweet to even grudgingly admire.

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.
