Something for your hair
A sickeningly sweet synthetic fruit bomb suitable mostly for teenagers. You could wear this all year round, but I prefer you didn't.

A complete failure to me. This fragrance opens heavy and sweet, with lots of candy fruits. There's a sour note from the passion fruit and it fizzes a bit. It's just so, so extremely synthetic that it reminds me of a cheap hairspray, and almost gives me a headache. On clothing the passion fruit is more defined than on skin.

There's some bitterness in the dry down, which leans more to the resinous than zesty side. Ans a little bit of musk peeps around the corner. It shifts a bit from the candy-like sweetness to something containing citrus notes. There's a hidden flower in there that I can't place that makes it all somewhat softer together with the vanilla, but don't expect miracles. throughout the longevity of this scent the hairspray is still a dominant factor. Don't like. At all.

A slightly more fruity/synthetic version of D&G The One!
I can only compare it with The One Edp, which I own a bottle of. In the heart notes, more similarities appear, but in the base they again become very easy to separate. Black Amber has more of a tangy vibe+has that tiare 'note in it. I'd say longevity is better on my skin with Zara. But no way near as smooth & creamy as The One. I could wear Zara Black Amber every day without problem, it easy to like!! Both scents have their advantages.

Not Black, but The One
For me, the Dupes of Zara are the best! And this perfume doesn't disappoint my nose either. If you like The One by D&G, you will love Black Amber too... So cheap and sooo similar. ;-) The durability is mediocre, but at the price to bear.

Why does this scent reminds me intensely of Prada Luna Rossa Extreme for men?

A pleasant and affordable night scent (although very evanescent and a little synthetic) . It reminds of The One by Dolce & Gabbana
