Perfume, like fashion, ebbs and flows in popularity based on the decade, trends and celebrity tastes of the day. But one thing that has always remained true is that, above all else, scent has the power to bring you joy when times are tough and lift your spirits when you’re feeling down. This is why it’s so important to find your signature scent—that one perfume or cologne that you reach for first when it comes time to spritz yourself before heading out the door. Because who wants to smell like every other person? We know we don’t!
1- WONDER ROSE
First up on our list is the Wonder Rose eau de parfum. This sweet and floral scent is perfect for springtime—or really any time you need a pick-me-up. The top notes of bergamot and blackcurrant give way to a heart of rose, jasmine, and orange blossom. And the whole thing is anchored by a base of musk, amber, and patchouli. In other words: It’s absolutely heavenly.
2- PINK FLAMBÉ
This bottle of perfume is so pretty, I almost don’t want to use it! The scent is a delicate mix of rose and jasmine, with a touch of spice. It’s perfect for date night or a special occasion.
I have to say, I was impressed with the quality of this perfume. It lasts all day and doesn’t fade away like some cheaper brands do. If you’re looking for a new signature scent, I would definitely recommend giving Zara’s perfume collection a try.
3- FIELDS AT NIGHTFALL
Zara also carries a woody scent if that’s what you’re after. This one is a little bit earthy and floral at the same time because it has notes of praline, jasmine, and sandalwood.
4- VETIVER PAMPLEMOUSSE
This fresh and woody scent is perfect for summer. It has top notes of grapefruit, orange, and lemon, middle notes of vetiver and patchouli, and base notes of amber and musk. We love how light and refreshing it is—it’s perfect for a day at the beach or a picnic in the park.
5- GOURMAND ADDICT
We’re big fans of gourmand fragrances here at the office, and Zara’s collection definitely does not disappoint. In fact, we’d go so far as to say that it’s one of the best places to buy perfume, period. This sophisticated bestseller made of a distinctive citrus cocktail hypnotizes us. Consider combining May rose, jasmine, peach, blackcurrant, and patchouli with mandarin, orange, and bergamot.
6- LIGHTLY BLOOM
If you’re looking for a light, floral scent that’s perfect for spring and summer, Zara’s Lightly Bloom is a great option. The top notes of jasmine and orange blossom are tempered by the muskiness of amber, resulting in a fragrance that’s both feminine and sophisticated. Plus, at just $25 for a 50ml bottle, it’s an affordable option if you’re looking to add to your perfume collection.
7- GOLDEN DECADE
Zara’s perfume collection is amazing and definitely underrated. The scents are unique and sophisticated, and the prices are unbeatable. Our top picks from the collection include Golden Decade, a warm and sensual scent with notes of amber and vanilla; Into the Blue, a fresh and aquatic scent with notes of citrus and musk; and Secret Garden, a romantic and floral scent with notes of rose and jasmine.
We’re starting off with NUIT, a warm and woody fragrance with notes of amber and musk. It’s the perfect scent for a night out (or a night in, TBH). We love how it’s both sexy and sophisticated—definitely worth a spritz.
9- UNUSUAL GOURMAND
When it comes to perfume, gourmand scents are usually pretty sweet and heavy. But this one from Zara is unique and unexpected. It’s a blend of jasmine, sandalwood, and amber, with just a hint of sweetness. And it’s incredibly affordable—just $15 for a 50ml bottle.
10- CHERRY SMOOTHIE
Cherry Smoothie is one of the best places to buy perfume. They have a wide variety of scents and brands, and the prices are unbeatable. Plus, the staff is always super helpful and willing to give you samples to try before you buy.
Femme by Zara is a sensual and romantic fragrance that’s perfect for date night. The top notes of orange blossom and bergamot are fresh and uplifting, while the heart of jasmine and ylang-ylang is warm and intoxicating. Sandalwood and musk round out the base for a seductive finish. This scent is truly special, and at just $30 for a 50ml bottle, it’s an absolute steal.
12- EBONY WOOD
If you’re looking for a woody, musky scent, look no further than Zara’s Ebony Wood perfume. The top notes of bergamot and grapefruit give way to a heart of cedarwood, rosemary, and amber, while the base notes of vetiver, musk, and patchouli round things out. Trust us—this scent is seriously addicting.
13- NUDE BOUQUET
Nude Bouquet is one of our top picks from Zara’s perfume collection. It’s a light, floral scent that’s perfect for everyday wear. Plus, the packaging is absolutely gorgeous. If you’re looking for a new signature scent, we highly recommend giving Nude Bouquet a try.
14- RED VANILLA
Zara’s perfume collection is seriously underrated. The scents are amazing and they’re super affordable. Our top pick is the Red Vanilla scent. It’s a perfect mix of sweet and spicy, and it lasts all day long. Plus, the bottle is gorgeous. If you’re looking for a new perfume, definitely check out Zara’s collection—you won’t be disappointed!
Tuberose is a night-blooming flower with a rich, seductive aroma that is often used in perfumes. Zara’s Tuberose perfume is a beautiful blend of tuberose and jasmine, with a touch of orange blossom. It is warm and sensual, perfect for an evening out. We also love the way it smells on skin, so if you’re looking for a new perfume, definitely give this one a try!
