Zara Is Low-Key One of the Best Places to Buy Perfumes—Here Are Our Favorites

It's no secret that we're fans of Zara here. We're always keeping an eye on its New Arrivals section and trying to uncover the best finds. We also love to peep other people's Zara carts for inspiration. Have you seen our best-of lists for each season? And don't even get us started on a good sale.

What can we say? Zara consistently delivers when it comes to clothes and accessories. But I'm going to let you in on a not-so-secret secret that just might blow your mind: Zara also has a pretty good beauty selection. So yeah, you could consider it a one-stop shop. If that's news to you, you're welcome.

When it comes to Zara's beauty section, you don't want to sleep on the fragrances. I think you'll be surprised at how many different perfumes the retailer has in stock. There's a scent for just about any mood and occasion. (I'm talking fresh floralswoody fragrances, and scents with a little bit of spice.) The best news? In true Zara fashion, its fragrances come at an amazing price point. You can't find one over $40. At that price, you could add a couple to your perfume collection to keep on rotation.

Since the inventory is pretty extensive, I've tried to narrow it down for you, and I've shared some of the best Zara fragrances below.

1. Wonder Rose 

If you're looking for a classic floral, here it is. The fresh fragrance contains notes of pear, vanilla, and red berries.

2. Pink Flambé

This perfume will transport you to fun and carefree summer nights, even in the dead of winter. It has notes of mandarin, melon, and praline.

3. Fields at Nightfall

If you're looking for a woody scent, Zara has that, too. This one is infused with scents of hedione, jasmine, and sandalwood, so it's a little bit earthy and floral at the same time.

4. Lightly Bloom

With notes of lotus flower, peony, and musk, this is a grown-up, sophisticated fragrance. It's perfect for everyday wear in the office.

5. Gourmand Addict

The patchouli in this gives it a bit of an earthy, musky feel, but it's balanced out with sweet notes of peach and cassis.

6. Vetiver Pamplemousse

I love this fragrance because it's a bit mysterious. It has notes of grapefruit for a fresh feeling, but the pink pepper gives it a little bit of spice, and the vetiver adds some earthiness. 

7. Hopeful Bergamot

Bergamot is always a classic note in fragrances. Who doesn't love that fresh, citrus smell? This eau de cologne also contains notes of orange blossom and guaiac wood. I think it's a year-round scent, but I'd especially wear it during the spring and summer months.

8. Nude Bouquet

This one is just so cheerful and lively. It has those happy notes of cherry, peony, and vanilla.

9. Nuit

When a fragrance is called "night," you know you're getting something a little mysterious and intense. It has notes of apricot, lily of the valley, and vanilla.

10. Bohemian Bluebells

Sandalwood is one of my favorite scents. I love how it can be so grounding but doesn't feel too serious. In addition to sandalwood, this eau de parfum has notes of lavender and musk.

11. Ruby Berries

If you want something ultrafeminine but not too sickly sweet, you'll like this one. The fruity fragrance has notes of red fruits, peach, and vanilla.

12. Red Vanilla

Don't let the vanilla fool you—this perfume is far from boring and average. The nighttime fragrance is warm and sensual with notes of cassis, iris, and vanilla.

13. Femme

Described as "warm, long-lasting, and cozy," this eau de toilette might be your signature scent for the fall and winter months. Notes include peony, vanilla, and musk.

14. Tuberose

Here's another cheerful, bright, and feminine pick. The unabashedly floral fragrance contains scents of cassis, tuberose, and vanilla.

15. Gourmand Addict

This fragrance has a little bit of everything. The cassis gives it a fruity sweetness while patchouli keeps it grounded. This is the kind of perfume you can wear from day to night.

More Zara Beauty Picks

As I mentioned above, Zara has plenty of great beauty options. Here are some notable picks.

Can't pick one Zara fragrance to buy? This discovery kit is perfect. 

Everyone needs a classic red lipstick in their makeup bag. This one has a velvety matte finish with vitamin E to nourish your lips.

Zara's eye shadow palettes are prime for creating a statement smoky eye. 

Zara also has eyeliner options. This one has a fine brush top, so it's easy to apply. 

This is the kind of shade that I like to consider almost neutral and therefore perfect for everyday wear.

With over 38 shades, Zara's nail polish section will ensure your at-home manicure kit rivals the salon's colorways.  

I can never say no to a deep berry, so obviously, this hue is one of my picks. 

I'll never turn down a highlight that can be used on both the eyelids and cheekbones.
