Imagine the cobbled streets of Barcelona, the flowers overhanging the balconies, people meeting and laughing at tiny wine bars, old bookshops, vintage stores, beautiful ornate fountains, people drinking coffee and playing cards, loud happy voices. This is the Barcelona that inspires El Born. At times light and playful, at other dark and mysterious – El Born is rich and complex as day turns into night in Barcelona.

HOW IT WEARS
El Born is rich and warm on the skin, the Vanilla and Honey shine yet they are dark and mysterious, unlike any other scent we have. We really get the resinous elements, almost smoky that comes through making this a darker gourmand fragrance.
We love the mystery with El Born, it almost feel leathery and boozy as it settles on the skin, kind of like the type of scent you’d wear in a hidden bar drinking the best whiskey until the wee hours of the morning.
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”.
