It's one of Zara's most popular perfumes.

Last Updated on November 13, 2023

Wondering which designer perfume Zara’s Rose smells like? By now, it’s well known that Zara’s perfumes smell pretty similar to luxury scents. In these times when saving money has never felt more important, finding affordable luxuries has become essential. You don’t need to spend hundreds to feel good, especially as there’s so many expensive-smelling fragrances at Zara.

Amongst the high street label’s bestselling perfumes include those that smell identical to Chanel’s Chance, Tom Ford‘s Lost Cherry and Maison Francis Kurkdjian’s Baccarat Rouge 540. While these are some of the World’s most expensive perfumes, Zara’s start at just £9.99.

If you’ve never visited the perfume section of your local Zara store, I urge you to go. You might just come across a fragrance that smells like one of your favourites, and at the very least, you’ll find a new one that smells incredible.

If you’ve recently smelt Zara’s Rose, you might be wondering if there’s a luxury scent that smells similar. The answer is yes. It smells identical to a more expensive perfume and I’m sharing all the details, below. Keep reading for everything you need to know.

What Zara Rose is a dupe for Glossier You?

Zara’s Rose is making waves as a solid stand-in for Glossier’s You. It has a similar vibe with notes like pink pepper and iris but throws a twist with pear and woody accents. 

What’s great about it is that it’s got that luxe feel without being over the top, making it ideal for your daily fragrance fix. Since hitting the shelves, it’s been a hit, often selling out. It’s a go-to for anyone after that high-end scent experience but at a price that won’t make your wallet weep.

Glossier’s You is a warm and spicy scent, with key notes of pink pepper, iris and abrox. What’s great about it is that it’s vegan and cruelty-free, which sadly can’t be said for Zara.

Zara’s Rose perfume was launched in 2017 and has top notes of green notes and blackcurrant, middle notes of rose, peony and freesia and base notes of musk and sandalwood. This often sells out, but at £9.99 it’s no wonder!

Is Zara Rose worth it?

When it comes to Zara’s Rose, the question of its value is a simple one. If you’re into the idea of Glossier’s You but find the price a bit steep, then Zara’s version is definitely worth considering.

It nails the balance between affordability and a sense of luxury. You get a fragrance that’s close to a high-end product without the hefty price tag. But it’s not just about the cost; the scent itself is a win.

It’s got those key notes that match Glossier’s You, with a slight twist that gives it its own character. It’s not a carbon copy, and that’s part of its charm. The addition of fruity and woody notes adds a unique touch, making it more than just a knock-off.

However it’s also worth mentioning that Zara is not a cruelty-free brand, but Glossier prides itself on offering vegan and cruelty-free beauty products. This is a serious point worth considering. I’ve recently realised just how many brands still test on animals and I’m trying to change my beauty routine to align with my views.

So is Zara Rose worth it? With everything considered, the answer is yes. It’s a smart choice for budget-conscious perfume lovers who don’t want to compromise on their scent experience.

What’s the Most Popular Scent at Zara?

Zara’s perfumes are well-known for their quality and affordability. One standout is Zara’s Orchid, often compared to the pricey Black Opium by Yves Saint Laurent. People appreciate it for its luxurious scent that doesn’t come with a high price tag. So, whether you prefer scents like Glossier You or something unique, Zara offers a variety of options to explore.
