Part of the Bestial Collection, a dark and intense range that unlocks the universe of animal fantasy in Barcelona’s Modernism. Through its main form of expression – architecture, in particular Gaudi. One of the most interesting facets of Modernism architecture was its decorative aspect, characterised by the use of exotic and often mythical creatures – the fusion between the mytholigical and the real world.
Carner’s Drakon was inspired by a fabulous creature…the dragon that attracted the modernist artists, appealing to their imagination; some are benevolent characters, laden with wisdom, protectors of princesses or treasures, others are ferocious and evil, threatening, with large jaws and claws… A sophisticated green freshness, embodying the skin of the dragon opens up the perfume. A freshness achieved through the combination of cypress, betel leaf and black pepper. As the dragon takes strength and unfolds its greatness the perfume fires up with an explosive oud wood from akigalawood and cypriol and fuses with a vivid refined leather accord. Encased a hand crafted wooden box that exudes sophistication and contemporary luxury.
Carner Barcelona use only the highest grade and ethically sourced ingredients and materials when creating each fragrance.

HOW IT WEARS
Drakon is a rich and powerful fragrance, as one would expect with its ode to a dragon. Opening with a loud cypress note and the sharp pepper tone, it is fresh and green, yet rich to begin. Then, as Drakon settles we get the beautiful Leather note coming out which pairs beautifully with Cypress. Warm resins and spice create more depth and complexity as the fragrance develops yet the Cypress and Leather shine in Drakon.
We love the intensity and drama to this fragrance. A powerful scent to capture the essence of a powerful creature. Drakon takes us to a wonderful mythical world as you explore woodlands, the strong Cypress and resinous notes filling your senses as you get lost exploring amongst the giant trees. The warm and comforting scent of Leather and Sandalwood comes through and creates a soft creamy base and warmth like a horse’s saddle or the warm earth.
