    Default Zara Perfumed Water.

    I don't think those of you in the USA will have access to Zara, a Spanish
    clothes shop that is very popular over here in Europe, but I just noticed they
    had 3 men's and 3 women's "Toilet Waters" for sale at a very reduced price
    (5.99 for 100ml!!) and I had to try them.
    My favourite was Flor de Azahar - an orange blossom and white musk scent.
    Very soft and similar to Pure Poison by Dior.
    Lirio de Aqua - a Water Lily scent and Rosa Bulgara - a surprisingly nice rose scent.
    The bottles look very like the Les Exclusifs de Chanel ones.
    This line is made by Puig and is worth exploring for a line of well-made, minimalist
    every day fragrances. I don't imagine they last long but at that price they can be refreshed
    every so often during the day. Has anyone else tried these and, if so, what did you think?

    I love these scents.
    I have the Vetiver and Amber from the men's line, and also appreciated the Lirio de Aqua from the ladies range. There was also a peony-based women's scent that my wife fell for. Phenomenally well-priced perfumes.

    I have the three men's fragrances: Sandalwood, Amber and Vetiver. They are reviewed in the missing frangances list.

    Anyway, S does not have the same longevity nor sillage than A and V, which are astounding as for the price.

    S opens with aquatic notes, it is quite contemporary. V and A are more traditional

    Best value for money in the market, IMHO.

    We do have Zara here in the US. In fact I shop at the one on Newbury St. in Boston regularly. I have never thought to look to see if they have fragrances because it never crossed my mind that they would. I'm going to have to take a look next time I'm in.

    Those fraggies sound nice. And what a nice price! I don't think we have a Zara here in Virginia where I live, but I remember seeing it in NYC.

    Check this link out:

    Choose America, you will find United States among the rest of the countries in the continent. Unluckily, there is no Zara in Virginia.

    Thanks for the link. The closest one to me is in Washington DC, which is about 70 or 80 miles from me.
