Abbreviated perfume & fragrance reviews from one man's perspective

D600 by Carner Barcelona

5 Comments

I mentioned in an earlier posting that I had gone to MiN New York Apothecary in Soho in December.  While I was there I picked up a bottle of D600 by Carner Barcelona.  The perfume, which is designated as unisex is not something that I typically would be attracted to.  It’s sweet and fruity and doesn’t lean towards the heavier scents that I typically prefer.  When I first made the purchase, I wasn’t sure if I really was going to like it, but since that time I have to say it is presently one of my favorite scents.  This scent has many moods.  When you first put it on, it starts off a bit spicy.  But then it starts to warm the sweetness comes through.  For lack of better description, I feel like it reminds me of Sweettarts candy.  I know that sounds horrible, but in fact there are just so many layers that it’s hard to describe.  The reason why is due to the following notes posted from the Carner website:

Top notes
Madagascan Black Pepper, Sicilian Bergamot, Grapefruit.

Mid notes
Guatemalan Cardamom, Italian Iris, Egyptian Jasmine Absolut.

Base notes
Virginian Cedar Wood, Madagascan Vanilla Absolut, Vetyver.

Bottom line, this can be used for day or night and it really makes you feel special  and sexy when you wear it.  It’s an unusual scent where you’ll find yourself lifting your wrist for a whiff all throughout the day.  And the scent lasts and lasts. I love it!  Barcelona here I come!

  1. I LOVE D600, it is presently tied for my number 1 spot. My perceptions of it are quite different from yours though, I really get no sweetness from it. It is an elegant spicy woods fragrance for me and its beautiful development is sublimely deeper and darker floral that has mediterranean fingerprints all over it.

    • Thanks for stopping by Kathy. I have to admit, my review of CB D600 is probably one of my worst reviews. I was having such a hard time finding words to express my views. I bought this in the winter and you’re right, it was spicy and bold. But this is one of those scents that has a different effect depending on the temperature, etc. and when I wrote this, it really did come across as sweet. Bottom line is though that we both love it. In fact, my bottle is just about empty and I need to buy some more!
