ZARA VAPEUR BLANCHE REVIEWS
Fragrantica: After a first spray it gave me a cooling effect right away. It feels like a cedar forest on a rainy morning. Another great one after Blanc Ensoleille which is quite opposite - creamy, coconutty (with great performance - was testing it yesterday and lasted over 12h on my skin). I will wear Vapeur today and update later about performance. First impression is very good - may be a perfect office scent as it's very uplifting and inoffensive. I'm surprised how well blended this line is - no synthetic feel at all. Performance update: On my skin I'm getting at least 9-10 hours longevity (I could still detect it close to skin after 14 hours) and around 3h above average projection which for a quite mild fragrance is very good (it may still improve over time as my bottle was produced 25 days ago).
Fragrantica: Smell like eucalyptus and talc!!! It’s so cold and it has a spa vibe …… it’s like being in hut tub with pure eucalyptus oil in the middle of winter and snow it’s falling in your face, it’s pretty Cooling sensation.
Fragrantica: The star in this fragrance by OG is the bright eucalyptus bursting out at top note, which is also my favorite part of wearing this beauty. I also sense a lingering incense that traverses throughout the entirety of the wear. The heart and base is a light musky, yet not soapy, woody note that reminds of what is in Super Cedar in Byredo. It is released as a men's fragrance at Zara, but totally unisex.
Fragrantica: Instant love. Zara has really been stepping up their fragrance game. If you enjoy the perfumery style of Ms. Giacobetti, this is not to be missed. Concise, easy-to-read formula, brilliantly executed. Zara list of official notes include eucalyptus, steam, cedar, and musk, and to that I might add: lily. Imagine smelling the interior of a high-end wellness spa, with its cedar-lined steam rooms, and a vase of lilies at the reception desk, and you’ve got that here, bottled. Now that I’ve worn it for a couple of days, I can’t help but notice that its scent profile reminds me of another scent offered at ten times the price of this little gem: Le Labo’s Gaiac 10. No, they’re not dupes - and VB is less smokey - but this veers close to it, especially in its final stages on skin.
Fragrantica: If you like Virginia or Texas cedarwood, which are creamy and less terpenic/piney types compared to Atlas cedarwood, you’ll probably love this one. Imagine the cedarwood note from Philosykos EdP, or from Diptyque Tam Dao Edt/EdP. It’s one of those zen scents and another good release from Zara.
Fragrantica: Layer this with Zara Blanc Esoleille and thank me later.
Fragrantica: Very unique with the strong emphasis on the eucalyptus note, which comes through so strongly in the opening. Interesting the write up for this makes a link to sports- I do have a strong personal connection with eucalyptus and "vapor rub" - a mentholated gel used for sports, so that does come through very strongly for me. Unique, well constructed, and extremely well priced.
