Zahra translates to ?blossoming flower? in Arabic. The fragrance embodies the unfolding of the flawless, radiant beauty of youth. This is a sweet floral oriental fragrance that gradually turns spicy. It starts with fruity notes and builds to a body of Rose, Jasmine, Marigold, Mimosa (Sleeping Grass), Saffron, Berries, before ending with Sandal, Musk and Vanilla.
Scent of the day: Flora Gorgeous Gardenia by @gucci. This is a light, pretty and effervescent perfume in the floral fruity family, perfect for the weekend or the office. Maybe it should have the name Gorgeous Pear instead, at least on my skin. The pear is very prominent which is fine with me since I love pear in perfumes and one of the reasons I bought it. Other notes are of course gardenia but also red berries, frangipani and patch. Not great in longevity or sillage but more than enough for me as a lovely scent that surrounds me and a mood enhancer that makes me feel at ease. Nice bottle too.
L' Eau D'Issey Pour Homme by Issey Miyake EDT: 3.5/10, EDT Fraiche: 9/10.
The EDT smells average and nothing else, but the EDT Fraiche (although not the best performer) is an incredible aquatic scent that shifts the attitude of those around you. This is a powerhouse scent that I love, but I hate the EDT version!
Sensual, chic, laid back and intimate fragrance, Infinity Black reveals itself gradually on the skin. A lively and luminous cologne like opening gives way to a very mediterranean heart of anise and aromatic herbs. The base, a combination of tonka and guaicwood creates a leathery and tobacco effect.
