7 by Zara
What Does 7 Smell Like
The scent of 7 by Zara is a fresh, invigorating experience. Upon first exposure, you are greeted by the distinct, crisp smell of violet leaf intertwined with a minty undertone, offering a refreshing first impression. Slowly, the scent morphs, revealing a heart of geranium and lavender. The floral geranium brings a light, rosy scent that is unmistakably feminine, while the lavender adds a touch of cool, calming sweetness, providing a pleasant contrast to the initial freshness. As the scent settles, the base notes of musk, cedar, and sandalwood emerge. The musk provides a clean, animalistic warmth, while the cedar adds a hint of sharp, woody dryness. The sandalwood finishes the scent profile, adding a rich, creamy, woody depth. Despite its primary fresh attribute, 7 by Zara encompasses a wide range of olfactory experiences, with floral, woody, green, citrus, fougère, and spicy accords also making their presence known. The persistent powdery undertone gives the perfume a subtly sophisticated finish. Though the scent is undeniably complex, none of the accords overwhelm or outshine the others, which contributes to the uniqueness of this perfume.
Review of 7
Zara's 7, released in 2015, is a men's perfume that still holds its place in the market today. We think it does a fine job of catering to a wide range of ages, with a slight lean towards the mature crowd. It's a versatile perfume you can wear for various activities - business, leisure, or even a casual day out.
In terms of the scent, it's a mixed bag of fresh, floral, woody, and green notes. The presence of violet leaf and mint makes it a refreshing choice for spring days. However, it doesn't falter in colder seasons due to the warm undertones of cedar and sandalwood.
While the scent profile is decent, its longevity and sillage are not the best. You'll find that it may not last through a long day or leave a strong trail behind. On the upside, this makes it less likely to overpower, making it a good option for those who prefer more subtle fragrances.
The value of 7 by Zara is subjective. It's not the most economical choice, but certainly not out of reach for most. If you're someone who appreciates a blend of fresh and woody notes and doesn't mind reapplying throughout the day, this could be a perfume worth considering.
