Since its inception in 2009 by Sara Carner, an olfactory professional who honed her skills at leading companies such as Chanel and Shiseido, fragrance brand Carner has gone leaps and bounds with its signature wood-capped fragrance bottles. The company has recently inaugurated its brand new headquarters in Barcelona‘s historic downtown district of Eixample, and the premises also feature the brand’s first retail space. Situated in the basement section of a five-storey residential building with a classical façade, the store features an interior design by local practice Jofre Roca Arquitectes which embeds the building’s vaulted and sometimes crumbling brick walls. The premises comprise of a front section, occupied by the store, and a back section which houses offices, connected by a corridor. The brickwork has been exposed, revealing their patina and marks, and then dipped in a pristine white hue. Furnishings comprise of wooden display cabinets in matching white and with built-in lighting. Both the sliding door, which conceals the office, and the flooring are crafted from light timber. The new Carner store carries the brand’s full range of niche fragrances and scented candles.
