A Midsummer Night's Smell of Freshly Mowed Hay
Lavender and Bergamot is a herbal and relaxing blend. A garden scent that is complex and bright, with citrus and tea notes from the bergamot and floral, waxy notes from the classic lavender. Guess which fragrance is the clone?

ZARA Bergamot & Lavender belongs to The Naturals collection; ingredients from natural origin made this fragrance. As usual, Zara invests a lot in packaging and bottles; this time, the box is a white cylinder liken Acqua di Parma blu boxes, and the bottle is the same used in Molecules collection, 80ml with transparent glass and wooden-made cap. The perfume comes in an EDP concentration, and the main notes are bergamot, lavender, and cedarwood.

Let's talk about the scent, which I find unique and closer to a niche fragrance than a designer one. Zara Bergamot & Lavender welcomes you with a blast of aromatic, creamy, and herbal lavender. The lavender used here is less floral and more hay-like. Imagine crumbling a flowering stalk of lavender between your fingers and then inhaling the perfume that emanates, herbaceous, the smell of freshly mowed hay that fills the midsummer nights. That fragrance is blended with creamy bergamot, resulting in a lactonic aroma. The overall accord has waxy nuances, sweet rose odor, many people might dislike it, yet many others might feel relaxed by the smell of lavender. This effect is more than merely associating the scent with a positive experience, like wandering around a lavender field. The compound linalool is responsible for lavender's calming effects, and here is overdosed, when I inhale linalool, it gets absorbed into my bloodstream.

I love lavender, especially when it smells fresh as if it were just freshly plucked, and this lovely fragrance does not disappoint. Some might not be used to this kind of lavender as it starts a little bitter and astringent, but therein lies the beauty of the note itself. Soon after the lavender settles, the whole composition becomes floral, herbal, and green. I pick up on geranium and jasmine in the heart. There's no doubt about it; this is fougére as it does not reminds me of any other scent.

With cedarwood and coumarin added to help construct balance to the austerity of the lavender and the herbals, the dry is woody. As soon as the lavender calms down, the scent becomes almost linear. I feel this one radiates heat and sweetens up depending on body chemistry. It is probably best suited for winter, not offensive if worn at the office, an evening stroll, or a dinner out. Despite the EDP concentration, the scent does not project far than the arms, and the longevity lasts for a few hours. I was not able to match this cologne with a designer or niche scent; thus, to me, this one is unique. It smells like summer, it feels like a holiday, close your eyes and breathe deeply to be enlivened by the scents of the Provence golden blue.

As a side note, I recently came across Pour Un Homme de Caron, which I have always wanted but never smelt before, and I realized that the two perfumes share the same atmosphere of lavender and vanilla. Wanting to be precise, Pour Un Homme presents the most herbaceous undertones, while Bergamot & Lavender reveals the most creamy facets. Maybe this time, ZARA has drawn inspiration from the Caron masterpiece.
