With the warmer months fast approaching (fingers crossed) we’re looking to switch up our fragrances. Gone are our heady, heavy numbers, and in their place is something lighter, brighter and reminiscent of sunnier climates. As Spring turns to Summer, we’re using the impending sunshine as the perfect excuse to indulge in a little fragrance shopping.
The good news? While we’ll always appreciate the mood-boosting power of a luxury purchase, there’s no longer any need to drop upwards of £100 to be assured of a unique scent with staying power. And that’s where Zara comes in. We’ve said it before (and we’ll say it again) but the high-street store is something of a gold-mine when it comes to their scent selection.
No matter your taste, from flirty and floral to deep and musky, you’d be forgiven for thinking that a high-street store couldn’t compare to their designer counterparts. But that’s where you’d be mistaken. In fact, Zara's catalogue of scents is brimming with internet breaking dupes. Read: The signature amber and sandalwood notes of Gypsy Water by Byredo, and Lancome's patchouli and vanilla based La Vie Est Belle. The best part? They’re usually £19.99 or less.
The latest Zara fragrance launch to pique our interest (and a hefty portion TikTok for that matter) is a body oil which has been compared to the Tom Ford Soleil Blanc Shimmering Body Oil, £85. While Tom Ford’s fragrance is an utter treat that will always have a space in our beauty cabinet, Zara’s version is an excellent alternative for those hoping to save some money - without scrimping on a truly beautiful product.

The Zara body oils are brimming with gold particles, leaving behind a luminous shine that's never greasy. Just a sweep is enough to illumine the whole body, meaning that one bottle has the potential to last for months. The three scents, Wonder Rose, Gardenia and Soleil, ensure there’s something for all tastes, and we can personally attest to these oils being powerful, long lasting and luxurious - with striking similarities to their more expensive counterparts.
