How are you all? You know, this is the best weather time in north India, where you are neither deep fried in the hot loo winds nor chilled to white skin. To top that, it rained heavily 3 days back which is not expected at this time though but I enjoyed it a lot. What about you?
Coming to the fragrance, Zara is one of the most loved brands I suppose and what happens when they add a plethora of fragrance bottles to their already attractive stores? That too just around the billing counters where we just cannot ignore them. The result is obvious- you end up picking 2-3 bottles at once. And here you have the review for one of those instant picks.
Read on to find more on this one.
Price: INR 490 for 15 ml
My take on Zara Femme Eau De Toilette:
This comes in a very cute small transparent white bottle with golden cap. It was the smallest perfume bottle available there. I asked for a bigger version but they make it in one size only. These are intended to be easily carried around in handbags, they say. I liked the thought as carrying big bottles in handbags is such a headache. The cap fits in snugly and the packaging is sturdy. There is absolutely no chance of spilling while you carry it along.
Coming to the fragrance, it has mainly vanilla and woody notes. It is somewhat a little spicy fragrance. It is more of an evening perfume. I would love to smell like this in winters specially. Generally I do not like woody fragrances, but this one was good on first spray and amazing after say 10 minutes. It changes to something more sensual after another 10 minutes. I like those notes more. Not everybody would like this fragrance or I would say it is not a common fragrance. It is not my absolute favourite but people who love vanilla notes will love it immensely.
Unlike other zara fragrances, this one is a long lasting one. It is noticeable till 7-8 hours and remains mildly on the clothes that you wear even after that. Other Zara fragrances that I have used before stay for a very short duration say 2-3 hours only. I love the long lasting effect in this one. After some 4 hours, you can smell a mixture of musk, woody and warm notes. It makes it a perfect fragrance for colder months. It definitely will make an impact around. This fragrance makes me visualise a candle light dinner with vanilla candles in some chilled hilly area.
As I said, I love the small bottle for its ease of being carried around, but I wish there was a bigger version available because it will finish off real soon.
People who love Vanilla and woody notes, go grab as soon as possible and people who are not so fond of such fragrances, sniff at the store first. There is never a good or bad fragrance in perfumes; it is always the difference of choice.
What I like about Zara Femme Eau De Toilette:
- Very cute cream and golden colored packaging. The bottle and spray nozzle is sturdy.
- The small bottle is apt for carrying around in the purse.
- Lovely woody fragrance with warm notes.
- An awesome fragrance for winters.
- It is neither too mild nor too strong.
- It will definitely make an impact on people around you.

What I do not like about Zara Femme Eau De Toilette:
- Availability is an issue. There are very few Zara outlets in India.
- Notes are not mentioned anywhere on the bottle.
Until next time, take care!
