An Indefinable Aura around the Wearer
Thunder Feel is one of the ZARA niche colognes released at the end of the past year together with Metallic Spirit. Both come in EDP concentration, a great package, a heavy and magnetic cap, a superb sprayer, and a plentiful 120ml bottle colored with translucent shades outside and liquid silver inside... which almost justify the higher price around 25€ opposed to the regular ZARA releases in between 10-15€. The bottle of Thunder Feel is like an evening sky during a storm with thunder, you can feel the storm smell, the lightning, and the thunder. As many reviewers already stated here and elsewhere, this cologne is closely akin to a past release named C0r4n0l (coranol), and I am glad to hear that because the last one was available on a small 50ml size only.

Thunder Feel opens up with an explosion of cardamom, a black one I reckon due to its raunchy, sturdy, and medicinal aspect that is evocative of opulent patchouli. At the same time, there is a sort of mildness mixed with such darkness, you know, a sweet nightmare, a dirty dream, a wicked game. I don't get any zestiness in the opening, maybe a touch of powdery bergamot is present as in nearly all modern scents, and the sweet aroma might come from the heart notes.

The impetus opening easy a bit down after a few minutes, and it is followed by a slightly powdery and hazelnut aroma, and creamy touch of sweet floral, something reminiscent of ylang-ylang. That should be the coranol molecule, which has an extremely fresh, floral, somewhat vibrant rosy-metallic note that is really almost impossible to miss. The more I stick my nose on my wrist the more I like it.

As time goes on it is that we see a little more woodsy look. The dry down is full of cedarwood, without the pencil sharpener accord. However, it's not ultra woody, but a construction of an accord that suggests nuances of cedarwood with a velvety sensation, and perhaps a bit of fresh and clean musk. In other words, you will probably get a sweet sandalwood/cedar-like smell.

Overall the scent is great, this synthetic aroma hasn't the iso-e-super characteristics, so the fragrance lacks the luminosity and woodsy accord that it would provide, but love the spicy cardamom smell. which you probably know as a sweet sandalwood/cedar-like smell. Performances are in the average, the best wearing season is a cold one, winter. It is a whole day and evening scent, for men of any age and woman who likes masculine-targeted scents.

Zara's Coranol edition 2 but with a smart dress
Undoubtedly, Thunder Feel is a spicy woody fragrance, which unfortunately has EDT strength and not EDP as advertised, although it may have the correct concentration. There is also a fresh flowers accord, resulting from the synthetic Coranol, that may some people consider the fragrance to be floral woody.
Speaking of olfactory notes and not of ingredients, I get :
- resinous/very sweet/fresh spices frame, a fresh flowers accord, and a bit of smoked vetiver in the opening;
- resinous/sweet/fresh spices frame on a cedar wood frame, with some rosewood, amber and smoked vetiver, as well a little coriander in the heart;
- resinous/sweet frame, with a lot of cedar wood and a bit of amber in the bottom and drydown.
The perfume has an average longevity of 6 hours with 3 sprays, a sillage of 4 feet and 1 hour projection.
It has as a strong vibe of Scent Story's 24 Gold (minus the oud note), and a weak vibe of Tom Ford's Velvet Orchid EDT.
It is very similar to Zara's own black Coranol box, but less synthetic and more pleasant.
I consider this fragrance to be very nice, considering the atractive list price for an EDP of €22,50. The presentation is a major step forward if compared with the molecules series black box, and even with the vast majority of the Zara flasks.

Let's rate this Zara high end fragrance:
__________________________________________________________________________________________
Scent opening............8.0 (resinous, sweet, fresh)
Scent Dry Down.........9.0 (woody and pleasant)
Longevity (h) ..............6.5 (Up to 6 hours with 3 sprays)
Sillage (ft)....................6.5 (up to 4 ft sillage and 1 h projection with 3 sprays)
Versatility....................7.0 (slightly above average but not really for hot days)
Usability......................8.0 (quite usable, except parties, clubbing, hot indoors & outdoors)
Compliments..............7.0 (Attracts timid compliments)
Uniqueness.................7.5 (Zara C0R4N0L similar; remembers other fragrances as well)
Quality.........................8.0 (high end for Zara; above average)
Presentation...............8.5 (a matter of opinion)
Price.............................9.0 (€22.5 / 120 ml)
__________________________________________________________________________________________
- Average:.........7,72/10.0
between 7 and 8 => above average;
between 8 and 9 => recommended;
equal or bigger than 9 => don't miss it;

Opinion on Thunder Feel:
Good Winter and Fall scent and providing an average satisfaction, although not very original. Value for money is above average meaning that Zara high end is still a price under the market average for a designer fragrance.
Recommended? Yes due to its looks, and value for money. Very good perfume for the office and daily wear.
Blind buy worthy? It's a "please everybody" perfume and still inexpensive.
I recommend this fragrance.
