If you are an avid Zara shopper like myself, you can’t have missed the wall of perfumes in every store. Beautifully packaged and with a gorgeous selection of scents, Zara perfumes are cheap as chips and often dupes of more expensive fragrances.
A make-up artist recently told me all the girls in the industry use Zara perfumes almost exclusively as they are a fraction of the cost of branded scents. Zara Black Peony is a very close contender to Viktor and Rolf’s Flowerbomb while Zara Rose is a perfect dupe of Dior’s J’Adore.
The latest addition to my growing collection is Zara Fruity. A light summery scent, its top note is grapefruit, with delicate rose as a middle note and base notes of amber, vanilla and sandalwood. It reminds me of Dolce & Gabbana’s divine summer scent Light Blue with its fruity citrus top notes.
In terms of staying power, a light spritzing (ooh er) lasted me for hours. And for a tenner, I got a massive 100ml bottle. I’ll definitely be wearing this one all summer.
