Key Notes of N°04 Amber & Fig Cashmere

What Does N°04 Amber & Fig Cashmere Smell Like

The scent of N°04 Amber & Fig Cashmere by Zara is an intriguing balance of contrasts, merging elements of woody, green, and fresh notes. You are first greeted with a faint yet detectable note of pink pepper, which is quickly followed by a subtle hint of orange. The initial spiciness is soon softened by the succulent aroma of fig, adding a slight fruity twist.

The heart of this perfume is where the white woods come to play, enriching the overall fragrance with a woody depth that's neither overpowering nor overly masculine. As the scent evolves on your skin, you'll notice how the green and fresh accords harmonize with the creamy fig and white woods, adding a layer of complexity without overpowering the fragrance's core essence.

The dry-down presents a slightly warm, creamy base, with prominent ambergris adding a familiar, welcoming richness. Alongside ambergris, you'll detect a trace of ambrox, further enhancing the creamy, woody facets of the perfume. The final touch of patchouli completes the scent, providing a note of identifiable sweetness that's delightfully understated.

In conclusion, N°04 Amber & Fig Cashmere by Zara is a nice combo of green, fresh and woody notes laced with creamy, fruity and sweet undertones. While it might lack in terms of diversity in its composition, it makes up for in its well-executed balance and subtlety.

Review of N°04 Amber & Fig Cashmere

Zara's N°04 Amber & Fig Cashmere, released in 2021, caters slightly more towards women, but is not gender exclusive. We find this scent to be a well-rounded ensemble of woody and green notes with a fresh undertone. The presence of pink pepper and ambergris in the formulation adds subtle spicy and creamy accents, enhancing its character.

We believe that this perfume is particularly suited to the cooler seasons, such as fall and spring. However, its fresh element allows it to be versatile enough to be worn during the warmer summer months. It's a scent that can adapt to your daily activities, whether that be for work, leisure or a casual night out.

In terms of longevity, you will find that this perfume will last for a reasonable amount of time but may require a top-up for longer wear. The sillage is not overpowering, making it a good choice for those who prefer a more subtle scent trail. Lastly, considering its performance and the reputation of the brand, we believe it offers good value for money.

However, if you're seeking a scent with a strong sweet or fruity profile, or a perfume that can stand up to the harsh winter months, this may not be the perfume for you.
