Wood at sea
Maritime wood tone in a citrus dress sails over the sea. The dinghy is steered by a young man, it goes through salty spray. A few clouds stand in the sky, sunrays fall through. In some distance the Mediterranean coast smells.

The man and the sea #10 - of beach hats and sandy beaches
Costarella begins with tangy citrus fruits, pepper, maritime chords and clean musk. Azure blue, absolutely clear water in its purest freshness. Picture book holiday, glossy magazine and holiday dreams. It quickly becomes clear that the citric top note is only a brief sparkle in the course of the song. After only a short time the glossy magazine is put aside and soon it becomes clear: there really is beach and sea!
Sand chord, surprisingly well met, the fragrance is not really dry, but noticeably mineral. A lady with a pure white beach hat walks by, the musk makes for diffusion, but no longer pushes itself into the foreground. It becomes salty. Not like the algal-salty smell of the sea, more like dried up salt on tanned skin. Pleasantly white only with a very soft Ambroxan base cream! Delicate dark green notes in the background add a rather rough edge. And if it weren't for the salt and a kind of (drifting) wood that irrevocably focuses on the sea, the grey-green-mineral scent could make you think of cool, stony mountain lakes.

Carner's scent is one of the most pleasing of my test series. Not only because it is neither sweet nor significantly creamy, but also because it provides a view that goes beyond the sea. It captures the beach and stone, which could even interpret a different landscape.
Sillage and durability are pleasantly summery, although they are far from lasting a whole day.

Don't buy this!
This Is a lovely Mid spring & all of the summer scent.
You will like this if you love;
1.Dior Homme Cologne 2013 By Christian Dior
2.Bergamot By Malin+Goetz

If you tried those two and like them, then you love this one.
It sweet, aquatic, citrus with sea notes.
Perfect for events on or around the; beach, parks, or just a hot summer day.
Wearing this to the movies, or just hanging out with loved ones...wearing shorts & short sleeve tee shirt. Listing to Will Smith's SummerTime song, drinking some lemonade. Perfect all around.

Now would I outright buy a bottle of this fragrance after saying, what I wrote above...HELL NO!
Here's why: you can get this same scent profile with...
Dior Homme Cologne 2013 By Christian Dior.
The DHC 2013 last longer, projection & sillage is better as well, plus you can get a 200Ml of DHC 2013 for $80 - $100.
And Costarela Carner Barcelona cost $180 - $220 retail, $160 - $180 online. Nope, you lost me right there.

Thankfully I tried this via Scentbird, when it comes to niche fragrance and their high prices. Get a decant from someone, get a sample free of it from a Carner Barcelona boutique(if you have one near you), Sephora(free) & I think Macy's(for free). Buy a sample from eBay. A decant ScentBird, Scent Box or Luxury Box for $15.
Please don't buy this outright.
I hope I helped someone.

I used six sprays...both wrist, back & front of my neck, chest, and front of my shirt.

Will I buy this again?...Yes.

What's the strength of this? EDP.

Can you use it as a unisex scent? Yes.

Am I willing to trade this fragrance? Yes.

Should You Skip It, Sample It First or Blind Buy It?

1.I say Sample it first if you still wanna try it for yourself(It's super pricey).

2.Skip it and get Dior Homme Cologne 2013 By Christian Dior(Much better, you'll thank me later).

Is it the old, new formulation? New.

What's its availability; in production, limited edition or discontinued? In production.

An excellent combination of citrus and marine notes. Good option for the summer, especially to wear with a white t-shirt!
