Zara Is Low-Key One of the Best Places to Buy Perfumes—Here Are Our Favourites

It’s no secret that we’re fans of Zara here. We’re always keeping an eye on the new arrivals section, trying to uncover the best finds and we love to find those designer-inspired buys that will be trending for the season ahead. What can we say? The retailer just consistently delivers when it comes to clothes and accessories. But I’m going to let you in on a not-so-secret secret that just might blow your mind: Zara also has a pretty good beauty selection, too. So yeah, you could consider it a one-stop shop. If that’s news to you, you’re welcome.

When it comes to Zara’s beauty section, you don’t want to sleep on the fragrances. I think you’ll be surprised at how many different perfumes the retailer has in stock. There’s a scent for just about any mood and occasion, from fresh florals to something woodsy to ones with a little bit of spice. The best news? In true Zara fashion, they are at an amazing price point. You can’t find a fragrance over £26 here. At that price, you could add a couple to your perfume collection to keep on rotation.

Since the inventory is pretty extensive, we’ve tried to narrow it down for you and shared some of the best ones to buy below.

If you’re looking for a classic floral, here it is. The fresh fragrance contains notes of pomelo flower, black vanilla and green tea. 

This perfume will transport you to fun and carefree summer nights, even in the dead of winter. It has notes of rose, wood and amber. 

Zara has the woody scents if you’re looking for that, too. This one is infused with scents of praline, jasmine, and sandalwood, so it’s a little bit earthy and floral at the same time.

With notes of lotus flower, peony, and musk, this is a grown-up, sophisticated fragrance. It’s perfect for everyday wear in the office.

The patchouli in this gives it a bit of an earthy, musky feel, but it’s balanced out with sweet notes of peach and bergamot.

I love this fragrance because it’s a bit mysterious. It has a citrus note of apple for a fresh feeling, but it’s also got elegant notes of freesia flower and an indulgent touch of caramel. 

Bergamot is always a classic note in fragrances—who doesn’t love that fresh, citrus smell? This eau de parfum also contains notes of primo fiori lemon and ginger. I think it works year-round, but I’d wear it especially in the spring and summer months.

This one is just so cheerful and lively. It has those happy notes of cherry, peony, and vanilla.

When a fragrance is called “night,” you know you’re getting something a little mysterious and intense. It has notes of bergamot, peach and a woody background. 

Sandalwood is one of my favourite scents in fragrances—I love how it can be so grounding but doesn’t feel too serious. In addition to sandalwood, this eau de parfum has jasmine and cardamom.

If you want something ultrafeminine but not too sickly sweet, you’ll like this one. The fruity fragrance has notes of passion fruits, white woods, and vanilla.

Don’t let the “vanilla” in this perfume’s name fool you. It’s far from boring and average. The nighttime fragrance is warm and sensual, with notes of tangering, iris, and vanilla.

Described as “warm, long-lasting, and cozy,” this eau de toilette might be your signature scent to wear in the fall and winter months. Notes include peony, vanilla, and musk.

Here’s another cheerful, bright, and feminine pick. The unabashedly floral fragrance contains scents of wood, tuberose, and vanilla.

This fragrance has a little bit of everything with explosive hints of powdery green notes and sweet honey. This is the kind of perfume you can wear day to night.

As I mentioned above, Zara has other beauty options, namely a variety of lip products. Here are a couple of notable ones.

Everyone needs a classic red in their makeup bag. This lipstick leaves a velvet matte finish.

Zara’s new liquid lipstick selection has an array of brilliant colours to choose from and promises up to 16 hours of transfer-proof colour. 

An illuminating and long-lasting lipstick that will easily fit in any handbag. With Vitamin E for a nourishing finish. 

Glossy finish is all the rage, and just one sweep of this jelly lip oil will add a sleek gleam.  Next up, I Wear a Different Perfume Every Day, But These 11 Earn Me the Most Compliments.
