This goes on like a whiff of grape popsicles and a ton of orange blossom. The orange blossom is very pretty at first, and it really smells like orange blossoms (orange and creamy, clean floral with a touch of something almost herbal/planty). But then it dries down and goes funky on me, like orange blossoms smushed into a dirty ash tray. It smells dirty and slightly smoky. I wound up having to …Read more

I’ve been dying for trying this for years, and I received my sampler from Beutyhabit today. Disappointment! It’s not at all similar to Santa Maria Novella’s Zagara as some have described, in fact it’s much more similar to Antica Farmacia del Cinghiale which I bought I Florence 2 years ago, and very soon got tired of. In fact the two smells almost identical to me - could they have sent me a wrong …Read more

I get nothing but vanilla too. And it is far too sweet. Citrus? Where? I got NO citrus.

As to the vanilla, I prefer the more mellow blend in Zenzero to Zagara.

I had to wash off this overly sweet fragrance, I was going into sugar overload. Ick.

Orange blossom? I don't get it. Vanilla is more like it. The orange blossom in this perfume is so faint I can barely tell its there. It is also I believe supposed to have orange zest but I detect NO fresh citrus. Just a warm vanilla. Vanilla fans would like. Booooo :(

In my long search for a good and lasting neroli, I have found it. Like the Santa Maria Novella Zagara, but lasting. Whereas with the vast majority of orange blossoms I have tried, I was dousing myself every 1/2 hour, a few spritzes of this lasts the whole day without the scent wavering.

I've been lucky enough to be in the middle of a blooming orange grove on a breezy evening and I can say that the alchemists at I Profumi di Firenze have bottled that exact scent in Zagara. It's fine, elegant, fresh, cozy and airy, all at the same time. Perfect!!

As a huge fan of orange blossom, I was really looking forward to trying this – so much in fact, that I swapped for an entire bottle without having sniffed it. Big mistake. It was too strong, in-your-face, and harsh. So harsh and strong that it didn’t even smell like orange blossom – it smelled like…a grape lollipop. I’m not joking here either. I definitely prefer Santa Maria Novella’s …Read more

The orange blossom perfume to end all orange blossom perfumes. And I don't mean it in a good way.

Dabbing Zagara on my wrist is like someone zesting an unripe orange just off the tree right under my nose. The ticklishness of the sparkly zest is underscored and balanced out by the mellow roundness of the neroli scent. There is a slight soapiness in it too, which I don't like on me. It lends a hint of a metallic tang, and it works on the right person, just not me I suppose. There is a …Read more

like 4711 only much stronger and more beautiful/feminine (b/c it seems to have a little more floral), imo. uplifting, great active scent.
