ZARA HOME: THE PERFUME COLLECTION


About a month or so ago, I was invited to attend the ZARA HOME: THE PERFUME COLLECTION Fragrance Launch, however due to 'overhead difficulties' with my train (we've all been there right?) it meant that I was unable to attend! Luckily, I was still fortunate enough to have been sent the full collection to review, and I have to say.. I was definitely in for a treat! 

Launched in December 2016, The Perfume Collection is still relatively new, and features 6 fragrances within the collection! 

1. TONKA WOOD

  • Top Notes: Bergamot, Lemon, Blackcurrant
  • Heart Notes: Midnight Violet, Lily of the Valley
  • Base Notes: Vetiver, Tonka Bean, Praline Flower

Easily one of my favourites out of the collection! The opening of Tonka Wood is rather powerful, and the Bergamot and Blackcurrant notes can be identified easily. As the drydown starts, the fragrance takes a more muskier, sexier direction, and the longevity of the Tonka Wood fragrance lasted upon my skin for around 5-6 hours.

2. FLORAL MYSTERY

  • Top Notes: Lemon, Blackcurrant, Lotus Flower
  • Heart Notes: Peony, Bamboo, Spring Magnolia
  • Base Notes: White Woods, Amber, Pink Peach

Despite it's name, I don't actually find this fragrance to be too 'floral'... More of a sweet, fruitier fragrance! The opening is especially fruity, and the note of Lemon seems to be the most prominent, whilst the note of Amber shortly kicks in during the drydown. The longevity of Floral Mystery lasted on my skin for up to 3-4 hours which I hate to admit, but I was slightly glad as this fragrance was my least favourite!

3. ABSOLUTELY SUBLIME

  • Top Notes: Bergamot, Mate
  • Heart Notes: Violet, Black Tea
  • Base Notes: Brown Sugar, Guaiacum Wood

I found that the Absolutely Sublime fragrance was the most interesting out of the 6, in the sense that the opening of the fragrance started off quite fresh and sweet, but then ended up being a predominantly woody fragrance! The longevity of Absolutely Sublime lasted for up to 4-5 hours on the skin, and was one I received a few compliments on!

4. AQUA BERGAMOTA

  • Top Notes: Green Bergamot, Tangerine Aroma, Primofiore Lemon
  • Heart Notes: Neroli, Blackcurrant
  • Base Notes: Pamplewood

A crisp, fresh scent, absolutely ideal for the upcoming Spring/Summer seasons! The opening of Aqua Bergamota begins with a burst of the Lemon note and instantly feels light and airy on the skin. Having said that however, the longevity of Aqua Bergamota lasted for up to 6-7 hours! Rather impressive for such a light fragrance. 

5. CUIR VELVET

  • Top Notes: Lemon, Ginger, Cayenne Pepper
  • Heart Notes: Geranium, Provence Lavender, Elemi
  • Base Notes: Patchouli, Australian Sandalwood, Marine Accords

Cuir Velvet is my favourite fragrance out of the 6 within the collection! The Cayenne Pepper note creates a spicy feel, whilst the Lemon and Ginger give a fresh, citrus take on it. The longevity of Cuir Velvet was the longest on my skin, averaging around 7-8 hours!

6. EVITORIAL TWIST

  • Top Notes: Sage, Lavender Flower
  • Heart Notes: Ginger, Cedar
  • Base Notes: Cardamom, Musk

Evitorial Twist was the fragrance that I received a full bottle of, and I must point out the design of the bottle as I find it so sleek and I love how the cap is magnetic! The fragrance is quite similar to the Cuir Velvet, as I have found them both to be rather spicy. I have found Evitorial Twist to be slightly too heavy for me, as the sillage is quite powerful. Having said that, the drydown of the fragrance was my favourite part, and the longevity lasted for up to 6-7 hours!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Each of the fragrances are all Eau de Toilette's, and they are all available in the 100ml size bottle! They each retail at £29.99. Yes you read that, just £29.99 for 100ml... If that's not tempting you to try these out then I really don't know what will! You can view the full collection here.

*Please note: Each fragrance I received were in the sample sizes (except Evitorial Twist), so I sprayed these to their full use to get their full, and best effect for fair evaluation.*

Have you tried any of these fragrances before? Perhaps you've bought a different fragrance from Zara? If so, which one? I would love to hear from you guys, so don't forget to leave me a comment, and click the like button!
