A Rosy Dawn Over The City
In the spring of 2021, in collaboration with the master perfumer Alberto Morillas, Zara launched three fragrances inspired by a hypothetical trip to Spain, touching three of the major cities: Sevilla, Barcelona, and Madrid. This splendid collection gives us three different fragrances to wear in three distinct moments of the journey.

With Morning Sunray in Sevilla, the city that gave birth to the legendary master perfumer, the nose captured the atmosphere that reigns at dawn near the Seville cathedral. It is in Seville, that Alberto Morillas experienced his first olfactory emotions. In the heat of Andalusia, the scents of Fleur d'Oranger, jasmine, rosemary and incense bathed all of his youth. Here we find the harshness of the flowers and fruits of the citrus trees that line the city's streets, the freshness of the flowers that overflow in the courtyards and on the windowsills, and the darker and more mysterious notes fill the air inside the Cathedral. I have been in Seville for a weekend of pleasure. It was mid-January, but spring was already in the air in this sunny city, so that I could appreciate all the sensations captured in this fragrance.

It is herbaceous, citrusy, straw, and hay, moist with dew, slightly alcoholic like an infusion of aromatic herbs. That's that blast that welcomes me. From this pale yellowish water, I feel the pungent smell of the bitter citrus, oranges, and lemons that populate the streets of Seville. Many aromatic herbs envelop the citrus fruits. I get an aroma similar to the straw and hay, herbal, from the aromatic tarragon and rosemary. The opening is all about medicinal lemony, sweet citrus blossom in the background, and fresh spices. Imagine cutting some tarragon leaves and rosemary needles and then pouring fresh lemon juice over. That's the balmy lemon aroma I get.

Like the sky shades at dawn, the fragrance turns rapidly. There is a bouquet of jasmine growing in every patio, with green geranium leaves placed in the sun on the windowsills of the houses. Slowly, the jasmine brings softness to the sour opening. It looks more comfortable and easier to wear now. There is a soft floral note and a bit of citrus. The scent is bright and beautiful. A smoky and resinous aroma fills the air. The cypresses in the patio of the Catedral Metropolitana de Santa Maria de la Sede de Sevilla release resinous scents under the first rays of the sun.

In the dry-down, the citric accord calms down, and a dense cloud of incense oozes from the Cathedral, just diffused for the first function of the long day. I visit the Cathedral, and the smell of olibanum now grows and mixes with that of the warm, amber wood of the benches and the moss that covers the wetter walls facing north—what a dreamy redolence. Labdanum gives off dense, warm, balsamic, and amber notes with sweet, honeyed, and woody nuances.

Fresh, last almost all the morning. A daily scent for Spring and Summer mornings, with weak sillage and longevity, it performs as an EDC on my skin. Reapply if you want to smell good until the evening. That said, although it's not groundbreaking, for less than €20, it is a pleasing fragrance. The legendary Morillas is the author of a seemingly endless line of iconic fragrances, and this one should not go unnoticed.

I base the review on a 100ml bottle I have owned since June 2021.

Typical Alberto Morillas
I ordered "Bohemian Sunset in Barcelona" and "Morning Sunray in Seville" both for a ridiculous 10.99 each from Zara, as I have always loved many of the fragrances Alberto Morillas has created.

Who does not know him, here are a few of his highlights:
- CK One
- Tommy
- 212 Men
- Acqua di Gio
- Light Blue pour Homme
but also niches such as The Tragedy of Lord George, or Journey Man
and last but not least, the perfumer of Jeremy Fragrance for his line. Love it or hate it.

Morning Sunray is also a typical Morillas and is for me similar (not to be understood as a dupe or twin) as Light Blue by D&G. The fragrance accord is described as follows:

Head: lemon, tarragon, rosemary, neroli
Heart: jasmine, cypress, geranium
Base: soft smoke, ambroxan, oakmoss

The opening is super lemony and fresh and you really think of a fresh sunny morning. In addition to quite a lot of lemon, you can also smell the rosemary and neroli. After a while, it becomes a bit more floral fresh like spring meadow and fresh laundry with jasmine and especially geranium. And that's essentially where it stays. After some time then comes through a little incense, but only faintly perceptible.

Again, the durability is meow and eider I smell after a good 30-40 minutes almost nothing more.

It would be nice if he were here
Zara produces a zillion fragrances, some of them dupes, probably almost all of them. This fragrance was created within a series in collaboration with Alberto Morillas. Morillas co-created CK One, for example, and Narcisso Rodriguez Essence, etc., so he's a perfume legend (not that I know much about that). Because of this collaboration, my interest was piqued because I already really like Zara's Jo Malone fragrances.
The fragrance is now reduced to 10.99 euros on the Zara site. The marketing blah blah lets me know that you're supposed to live through a magical sunrise in Seville here. Aha, well ok.
One thing very clear right away: this stuff is weak on the chest!!! Hardly any sillage, hardly any power. A watery. Nevertheless: very round, very angegenehm. First something citrusy, something spicy (very delicate rosemary), then becomes a still very pleasant Weihräuchlein (no Wummser, gaaaar not).
Reminds me overall of Lush Blue Skies and Fluffy White Clouds with some patchouli.
An extremely weak little water. But immensely pleasant, not scratchy. An absolute barbershop scent. As a feminine woman, but who likes to wear men's fragrances, I like this delicate little plant and find him relatively ok for the small price. But actually you want to be allowed to smell it stronger. Just too weak, but still as a fragrance idea actually quite successful.
Beautiful purist bottle. For the 20 euros, which he would have cost, actually not recommendable in its weak-brightness.
I spray at the same time the Paris Stories from Zara (Place Dauphine), they smell identical for me, PD possibly a little more Calone. Beautiful, gentle, but too weak.
But you do nothing wrong if you are into artificiality, which looks nice in the bottle. No one will blame you for smelling bad.
What is the fragrance as a song: Something in the distance with beautiful sounds, but too far away

Herbaceous, citrus, straw and hay, moist with dew, slightly alcoholic like an infusion of aromatic herbs. That’s the blast that welcomes me.
