    Thumbs up Carner Barcelona Cuirs--Wow..

    Between scents of the day I have been trying Carner Barcelona Cuirs Edp from a sample included with a purchase of another fragrance from a fellow Basenoter.

    I find it to be a hauntingly beautiful unisex fragrance with 10+ hour longevity on me . Saffron, Amber, Leather, Nagarmotha/(Cypriol)! (this is a new one for me..it apparently adds deep smoky, woodsy, leather notes) and more. It seems to work well with my skin chemistry, at least to my nose. I broke down today and ordered a pair of 2.5ml samples online directly from the House. A tad pricey at retail for a full bottle but definitely on my target list for Christmas. Really, really nice for both gals and guys! I am thinking of organizing a split for this one if larger bottles are available.

    Thanks for the info., kbe - sounds unusual.
    I think that Nagarmotha is sometimes used in a powder at weddings in India.

    Me too! I love D600, named after their address. A very nice, easy-to-love fragrance.

    I've tried Tardes from this house and didn't care for it. Too feminine. I thought Cuirs and D600 were a bit better. Haven't tried Rima XI yet. Tried these when I was in Barcelona a while ago. (574)
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve other individuals' acknowledgement or respect.

    Isn't Barcelona a wonderful city? I loved everything about it. Did you see the Sagrada Familia? Very cool!

    I almost picked up some Spanish cheapies at a drugstore, and kick myself for putting it off, since "later" never came. I found Spanish products in general to be very high quality yet very well-priced.

    The D600 is the one I would like to try.
