Review | Zara Femme Perfume


You know how much I love the Zara perfume range, I’ve already done rave reviews of their Applejuice and Oriental fragrances, but I think I have found my absolute favourite

I popped in their Bournemouth store a few weeks ago whilst shopping with my friend Ashely, originally I wanted to get Rose some shoes but instead I headed over to the perfumes. Ashley hadn’t ever tried Zara fragrances so I introduced her to my favourites. We actually ended up buying the same scent, Femme. I grabbed both the 100ml and 30ml, one for home, one for my handbag, of course. In the store the bottle was clear but when I got home and opened them up they are actually in the most beautiful packaging. The glass bottle and neutral tones are refreshingly simplistic and really suit the scent.

There is never a lot of info on the Zara perfumes, they do list the notes on the website but not in a particular order so I’ve attempted to place them into the order of which I smell them. The top note has to be bergamot with the middle note being caramel and lastly the base notes are vanilla, musk and sandalwood. I’m not expert so if you smell it and I’m wrong, sorry.

Femme is light and refreshing, it’s understated but memorable and has just enough spice to allow this scent to be subtly sexy. After wearing this for a few days I realised it smells very similar to my sister’s signature scent, Emporio Armani She, well if I’m honest it smells exactly like it, both are very woody, oriental scents and have just enough vanilla to keep things sweet. The staying power of Femme isn’t incredible but that’s to be expected, I do however only reapply it a few times a day depending on what I am doing.
The price compared to the more high end counterparts is the best part, 100ml is a mere £7.99, which is mind boggling when you would pay almost 6x that price for 100ml of Armani She.

    I didn't realise that Zara does perfumes. This sounds lovely and your pictures are gorgeous.

    I had no idea Zara does fragrances. Thank you for introducing to me too. Love the packaging and think it could be a perfect Christmas present for my sister.

    As everyone else has said I didn't realise they did perfumes either but just intime as I ran out last week and would like something new and not 'overly' advertised, something that someone will smell and not recognise! *mysterious* 🙂
    Thank you
