ZARA NOBODY KNOWS REVIEWS
Fragrantica: Dusty autumnal rose, ebony and sandal. Spicy opening of dusty black pepper with unsweetened blackcurrent, I like it a lot, it has an unruly element about it. There is little fruitiness and more cassis, but it remains delicate. The rose in it is light, somewhat essicated and dusty, probably because of the pairing with dry and lightly smoked ebony. Surprisingly there is a dry down that strongly reminds of the mix of cardamom and sandalwood, a sort of creamy mentholated sandal. I like it a lot. I am wondering how it will pair with Ebony Wood and Fleur de Patchouli, or with the more unisex Zara from the last collection. But in truth it doesn't smell at all like Ebony Wood.
Fragrantica: Opens up woody and dries down woody, and in-between there's a little sweetness that isn't annoying at all. Can be worn daily at office, maybe no one will compliment on the scent but no one's going to complain either.
Fragrantica: One of my top 3 scents from this line. It's an interesting, woody aromatic scent. Soft, a bit spicy and somewhat light. Feels modern and different from many typical offerings for women. Well blended. Leans slightly unisex. I enjoy it outdoors, especially during late summer and autumn. Good for work and going out to run errands or stroll in a park.
Fragrantica: Woody, cozy and green. I dont think it resembles Ebony Wood, this is more green to my nose, and is less "warm". I don't like it on its own that much, it has a weird metal note I can not define. Layered with Blanc-A-Porter is brilliant and much more suits my liking, the weird metal note is gone and the mix is more "fig like" green and is "softer". Longevity is about 4,5 hours on my skin.
Fragrantica: This is wonderful. Despite the notes, I don't get a similarity with Ebony Wood, a dryer, spicy scent. This is fruity without spice. The note of black pepper only gives it a bit of an edge in the opening. Btw, I am normally not a fan of rose scents, except for the ones with a jammier vibe. The rose in Nobody Knows is exactly that wonderful jammy rose, like the fig/rose/currant accord in Le Labo's The Noir 29, or it even reminds me of the rose in Guerlain's LPRN Black Perfecto. The fragrance opens with a green and fruity blast of cassis to settle into this jammy rose and smooth woody notes. This works on its own but is wonderful worn layered, especially with simpler vanilla fragrances.
Fragrantica: I am incredibly surprised that this scent is compared to Ebony wood. I bought Nobody Knows after a test in the shop and thought that it smells quite unique. I found out about Ebony Wood comparison at home and sprayed both side by side (I own and love Ebony Wood). I can not find anything in common, my husband thinks there is a slight resemblance, but overall totally different scents. Certainly not a dupe, like many Youtube reviews say! Lovely scent though.
Fragrantica: The initial impression of this fragrance is truly distinctive! It combines elements of woodiness, freshness, spiciness, and a warm undertone with a subtle hint of black pepper, which could be reminiscent of menthanol. This intriguing blend feels both bright and sharp, yet surprisingly cozy. As the scent evolves, it transitions into a warm, jammy rose note with subtle green undertones from the cassis. Finally, it settles into a creamy, woody warmth. What sets this perfume apart from other Zara perfumes is its remarkable longevity. When I apply 3-4 sprays, it easily lasts for 12 hours or more. However, I find that just 2 sprays are sufficient for daytime wear.
Fragrantica: Dear Zara, please keep that perfume in a permanent series. This smells like an expensive perfume with a lot of character, mystery and confidence. Haven't smelled anything similar yet. It is woody, herby, creamy (yep there is coconut in there) and spicy at the same time. I got 2 big bottles for myself, thinking I would wear it in meetings and places I want to show more confident and interesting and my husband started wearing it non/stop, he never wears perfumes but this made a difference. Every day I go like mmmm when he wears it. Long lasting, great sillage, such great blend with the skin, definitely unisex and the more it stays on the shelf, the better it gets. I will 100% cry when if it gets discontinued.
