My experience with Zara Oriental Eau De Toilette
Packaging: the packaging of Zara perfumes is extremely classy, yet simple. I loved the packaging. It is packed in a beige colored paper box and the perfume comes in a glass bottle with a black cap. 1/1 for the bottle as well. The words “Zara oriental” is written in bold on the bottle and the ingredients are written on the package.
Color and texture: it is colorless and has a liquid consistency
Fragrance: it has a pleasant vanilla and caramel smell. It just smells so sweet, just amazing. It is not too strong, it has just the perfect notes and is extremely comforting.
I visited Chennai and it is the huge metropolitan city has many malls which have shops from international brands and one of it is Zara. Zara basically specializes in apparels but they have perfumes and accessories as well. I shopped for a few Zara dresses and while billing, I saw these cute little perfumes and tried them. I instantly fell in love with this perfume and decided to purchase it. They did not have the biggest bottle so I settled down for the 100 ml bottle. The smell is sweet, woody and simple. It contains caramel and vanilla and has no hints of alcohol (even though it does contain alcohol). It sometimes smells citrusy as well. It is a beautiful girly scent and has woody notes with it. It smells expensive and sophisticated and is extremely affordable which makes it a huge plus point. It is a warm, elegant scent that has clear notes of sandalwood and caramel as well. I have always gotten compliments wearing this perfume but the only problem is that it fades away after a few hours. It is expected that a perfume stays for a good 8 hours at least without the need to reapply it. But this one stays for a maximum of 5 hours depending on the body type.
