ZARA BLANC ENSOLEILLE REVIEWS
Fragrantica: One of the best creamy coconut fragrance I have ever smelled. Very unisex, very natural, smells exactly as you can imagine according to notes although it smells much stronger than I expected - reminds me immediately of Le Beau Le Parfum I was using a lot this summer - just less complex and masculine. Performance seems to be good as well, but now I'm wearing it only 4 hours and I don't judge Zara fragrances performance just after opening a new bottle as it's performance tends to improve over time. I like it overall, I like it a lot! Edit: longevity on my skin is about 12h - I could still tell it's there close to skin after 16 hours
Fragrantica: A coconut version of the famed Philosykos.
Fragrantica: I have been on the hunt for the perfect coconut scent, and this immediately took its place on that shelf! To my nose, this is an incredibly clean and fresh, but simultaneously deep coconut scent with a tiny hint of sweet pineapple or yuzu fruit (rather than bergamot) in the background. There is something very light and airy in the smell, like a warm, salty breeze from the ocean, but there is nothing hard or metallic in it. It is soft, clean and somehow very natural. It almost feels like a watercolor painting of the most beautiful beach. I really, really love this. It is also perfectly unisex. Although it smells like sunlight, I think it will be perfect in the winter as well, paired with a soft wool sweater. If I try to find other perfumes this reminds me of, I can think of Estée Lauder Bronze Goddes Eau Fraiche, Guerlain Coconut Fizz and even Body Shop Coconut & Yuzu as sharing something similar. Compared to those, however, this is a very natural, bright and clean smelling with no florals. This is one of the very few fragrances that I immediately got a backup bottle for.
Fragrantica: Very crisp, clean and musky with an overlaying note of creaminess from the coconut. I don't find this tropical at all, in fact to me it's a cold fragrance, perfect to wear on a chill winter morning. This is my white T-shirt and jeans scent. New favourite.
