Zara is one of my favourite high street shops and not just for their clothes but for their perfumes! Recently I have been obsessed with their scents because one they smell amazing, two they are affordable and three they are dupes for very expensive perfumes! If you are on the lookout for a new affordable perfume then make sure to keep reading. In today's post, I'll be sharing with you my favourite perfumes from Zara!

Applejuice 30ml - £7.99

This was the first perfume that I tried from Zara and it started my obsession with Zara perfumes. This perfume was launched all the way back in 2012 and I'm sad that I've only just discovered it this year when I could have been smelling amazing for years now. This perfume is described as a floral fruity scent which is definitely my favourite! This is also a perfect perfume to wear during the spring and summer months but I love it so much that I'll be wearing it year-round. While I was standing in Zara smelling a million different perfumes this one caught my attention right away because of its sweet but also delicate scent. I am a sucker for a fruity scent and I'm always on the lookout for scents that are sweet but not sickly which this perfume definitely is. Another thing I love about Zare perfumes is that eventhough they are affordable the scent lasts for hours, it may not last all day and needs a bit of a top up but after around 4 hours I could still smell this perfume strongly. I also discovered that this perfume is a dupe for the Chanel Chance Eau Fraiche which is a whopping £102 which is an amazing deal!

Top Notes: Apple, Grapefruit and Orange 
Middle Notes: Rose, Peony, Violet and Jasmine 
Base Notes: Musk, Cedar and Sandalwood

Orchid 30ml - £7.99

About a week after my first Zara perfume and having used half of the bottle already I had to go back and try out some different scents. I wasn't sure what I was looking for so I smelled everything! I think I got a bit of a headache after a while because I literally tried out all the different perfumes to find the one I liked the most and Orchid stood out to me. If you have seen already I quite like floral perfumes but not anything that smells too much like rose and this one is definitely that. If your looking for a scent that's fresh but also floral then this is definitely the perfume for you, as soon as you spray it you get a scent of peach and apple which it gorgeous. This perfume isn't as sweet as apple juice though because it has more musk to it giving it a deeper scent. This perfume is technically more of a day perfume but I think it would be perfume to wear during the evening too, I've worn this perfume multiple times when I've been out for an evening and have loved it and I've even got compliments on it and people have asked what perfume I'm wearing which is truly one of the best compliments ever! In my research, this perfume is a dupe for Victoria's Secret Bombshell perfume which is between £45 - £59 so you are getting a major saving with this perfume from Zara. 

Top Notes: Bergamot and Peach 
Middle Notes: Orchid and Rose
Base Notes: Vanilla, Red Current and Cedar

Gardenia 30ml - £7.99

When I tried Gardenia for the first time I couldn't decide out of all my Zara perfumes which one I loved more because they are all so good! As soon as I tested out this perfume I had to have it and luckily I found a set that you could get Orchid and Gardenia for only £10.99 so I obviously had to get that! This perfume is a little different from the other two on this list because it is more of an autumn-winter scent and can be worn during the day and the night so it's the perfect scent to wear if you're out for the day and then having a night on the town! This perfume is pretty strong and feminine which I love and it has become my favourite perfume to wear whenever I'm getting dressed up and going out. Another reason why I love Zara perfumes is that because they are so affordable I don't mind taking them with me when I go out because if it gets lost or I break it won't cost a fortune. This perfume is a dupe for YSL Black Opium which I love but is pretty expensive at £104 for 90ml! Getting this perfume in 90ml from Zara is only £12.99 saving you a whopping £91!!

Top Notes: Bergamot and Raspberry 
Middle Notes: Jasmine
Base Notes: Vanilla and Musk
