When you’re looking for a perfume, you probably don’t think of notes of baby powder – but many have noticed that one of Zara’s perfumes smells just like it.
For those who prefer innocent and fresh fragrances over sexy and seductive scents, this might be a great option to consider. It sounds weird, but it’s sooo delicious.
The nostalgic baby powder scent that many people love is not just the clean, clay-like fragrance of talcum powder. It combines that comforting and light scent with the familiar notes found in fine perfumes, such as jasmine, rose, and vanilla.
If you’re anything like me, who has been quite loyal to baby powder-scented perfumes for a while, you might have tried the Flower by Kenzo and the Chanel No. 5; both are powdery classics.
I’ve been repurchasing these perfumes for a while until I found that there are actually cheaper alternatives in Zara.
So if you don’t want to splurge on designer perfumes, Zara has the next best thing. You can even find a dupe for the Tiktok famous Baccarat Rouge 540 from the brand.
