ZARA PERFUME REVIEW AND TIPS

Hey Junebugs…

People who know me know I loooove me some perfume and I love to smell good EVERY. SINGLE. TIME!!!

So I wanted to try some new scents from my regular Dior and Lancome because I needed to save some coins for a mini project I had. Therefore I decided to try out some Zara products because I love Zara products.

While in Nigeria, I used the Zara Cashmere Rose which is Oriental in scent, made with Cherry, Peony and Vanilla oil.

Pros: The scent is a good match for my skin scent and it sinks instantly into the pores as soon as you shower.

Cons: It is oriental and thus not good for hot weather. The vanilla oil begins to smell a bit off.

Coming back to the Uk, I have used it again and the weather treats it differently. The scent lasts up to six hours before you need to reapply again.

Price Point: £16

Another scent I tried on was an Eau De Toilette called Femme. Made of Bergamot  – Peony – Vanilla – Tonka Bean – Sandalwood – Patchouli – Musk.

I liked this because it was a mixture of feminine and male scent. The beauty of this toilette is that it actually lasts quite a while, it goes for about 3 hours but lasts an hour longer when mixed with a body spray of the same scent. I used a vanilla scented body spray to keep it going.

The only negative for this particular scent was that it didnt last as long as a perfume but that is a given because it is not a perfume.

Price point: £13 for ZARA FEMME 100ML + ZARA TWILIGHT 100ML EAU DE TOILETTE.

Tips to a longer lasting scent –

  1. Shower twice daily. It helps to scrub off body odour.
  2. Spray your perfume into your skin as soon as you are out of the shower. Your pores are still very open. This allows the oils to mix into your skin.
  3. Dab some vaseline into the pressure points on your skin – Wrist, neck, ears, elbow and nape and then DAB the perfume into the same spot.
  4. Use the same scent of body spray as base.

Still to try the Zara Fruity and Oriental which comes in a 2 for one pack.  The other scent is called oriental. Will keep you updated on my thought.

Price Point: £13 for ZARA ORIENTAL EAU DE TOILETTE 100 ML + ZARA FRUITY EAU DE TOILETTE 100 ML

And that’s all folks. I could use more tips if you have any. I have some more perfumes in my wardrobe I haven’t tried yet.
