Crude by Zara
What Does Crude Smell Like
The scent of Crude by Zara is decidedly synthetic, yet it manages to deliver a refreshing aquatic character that is equally noticeable. An initial waft reveals a fresh, crisp aroma, evoking an image of a cool breeze over a crystal-clear lake. The sweetness is not overwhelming but adds a pleasant edge to the overall fragrance profile. There's an unexpected touch of citrus that rounds out the primary accords, lending a zesty undertone to the synthetic, fresh, and aquatic layers. Brief hints of fruity notes lie subtly in the background, providing a delicate ending note to the olfactory journey. Despite the presence of orange blossom, sage, and vetiver listed in the notes, their influence appears to be quite muted, if not entirely absent. While the scent is predominantly synthetic, its complexity is presenting fresh and sweet facets that intertwine seamlessly with aquatic and citrusy elements.
Review of Crude
Zara's Crude is a men's fragrance that we believe leans towards a mature audience, though it has potential to appeal to the younger crowd. This perfume offers a blend primarily of synthetic, sweet, fresh, aquatic, and fruity scents, with a splash of citrus. The result is a scent that feels suitable for both leisurely and sporty occasions. You will find it suitable for daily wear, especially during the warmer months of spring and summer. Despite its name, Crude offers nothing crude in its olfactory presentation. Instead, you get a fragrance that feels clean, vibrant, and lively. While it holds a relatively good scent profile, we noticed that the longevity and sillage may not be as high as some other options in the market. Therefore, you may need to reapply during the day. For its price, it provides good value, making it a decent addition to any fragrance collection without breaking the bank.
