An exploration into the history of Southern Spain of the 7th Century. The Carner Barcelona History Collection is based on the concept of introducing new perfumes based on key historical events as a way to continue telling an authentic story about Barcelona’s past, history and culture. Inspired by these times of opulence, a time when Barcelona was still young, and often influenced by other cultures. A hedonistic and luxurious blend of Ambers and Woods, telling the story of a time when Spanish royalty wore perfumes of soft and enticing Musk. The scent of Amber wafted in the air, patios bloomed with flowers and romance. Ambar del Sur is light and gentle, creating an Amber fragrance that is truly unique, sophisticated and cocooning on the skin.

HOW IT WEARS
We love the softness of Ambar del Sur on the skin, the Amber note is prominent with the gentle warmth of Musk and Vanilla. The Carner Barcelona range is Eau de Parfum so we find that this scent softly mellows on the skin to a warm, almost skin-like feel over time. The longevity is generally between 6 to 8 hours.
We love the warm and soft scent of Amber in Ambar del Sur. It is intoxicating without being too strong. We feel like this is the perfect, sophisticated winter scent! It feels like wrapping yourself up in a soft and warm blanket – it’s not too heavy and never weighs you down. It simply creates a comforting warmth that kisses your skin with its gentle fibres.
ABOUT THE BRAND
Created by Sara Carner in 2008, the Carner Barcelona perfume collection is a beautiful, modern and sophisticated ode to her home of Barcelona. Capturing the essence of the Barcelona’s Mediterranean soul, Carner Barcelona has a unique vibrance much like the city itself. Each scent has its own identity and tells the story of Barcelona, from its culture, to its architecture, lifestyle and people. Entirely produced in Barcelona, using local artisans, the Carner Barcelona perfume line merges tradition with modern innovation to truly infuse each scent with the Mediterranean spirit. The wooden caps on each bottle of perfume are sourced ethically from sustainable European forests then engraved by hand in Barcelona. The elegant glass bottles portray the effortlessly chic aesthetic of the Mediterranean coast line. And each perfume box has a special message engraved on the inside panel that evokes the emotion of each fragrance and ultimately, the spirit in which each Carner Barcelona fragrance is always “made with love”.
