Rose Gold Perfume by Zara! #3
Meet my new favourite perfume Rose Gold by Zara. I picked this up on a whim when I was in Zara last, as I didn't want to be wearing my expensive perfumes every day and at £12.99, it seemed a bargain not to be missed!
Since getting Rose Gold, I have completely fell head over heels with this scent! Now I'm not really a rose perfume kind of gal but the rose in this one is very subtle and reminds me of a deep parma violet smell. Mmm, I love parma violets! At first, I thought it was going to be summery but once on the skin, it settles into a deep oriental autumn scent, ideal for spraying on your scarf and snuggling your face into while you are out walking about.
Zara describe it as:
“Zara Woman Rose Gold by Zara is a Oriental Floral fragrance for women. Zara Woman Rose Gold was launched in 2011. Top notes are magnolia and green notes; middle note is orange blossom; base notes are amber and musk.”
I'm pretty much pants as distinguishing notes in perfumes and I certainly can't smell any oranges or greenery in it. I do however agree with it being very oriental and musky. The perfume comes in a super cute rose gold bottle, with a twist down top, so you aren't accidentally squirting it all about your handbag.
Talk about longevity, this smell lasts and lasts.. and lasts! I can still smell it hours later on my skin and stays on your clothes for days, giving you a pleasant welcome whiff when you put your scarf on again the next day. I find this amazing for a scent that cost me £12.99 for 70ml, some of my expensive perfumes don't even last as long as this.
All in all, I adore this perfume and highly recommend that you run to your nearest Zara and give it a sniff. I will be stocking up next time I see it!
