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 –
- Shower twice daily. It helps to scrub off body odour.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
