Botafumeiro EDP 50ml
A deep and mystical perfume inspired by the scented smoke of the great churches of the 15th Century. The Carner Barcelona Orientals Collection is based on a 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. Botofumeiro pays homage to the large hanging cistern of the Santiago de Compostela Cathedral in Northwestern Spain. It is believed that the church's scented smoke cleansed travellers and pilgrims of plague and disease. Swinging to great heights, the botofumeiro expelled billows of scented smoke filling the air with a deep and compelling scent.

HOW IT WEARS
We love the sweet and soft incense that is the star of Botofumeiro. Spicy, warm and delicious - Botofumeiro has great longevity, we generally get around 6 to 8 hours with this perfume.
We love the churchy vibes of this scent. It is warm, infact it is perfectly sweet on the skin with the gentle spices that come alive to balance the sweet earthy notes beautifully.
ABOUT THE BRAND

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".
