A Viewpoint on Modern Sinuosity
Many have depicted sensuality, giving it loving attention and portraying it in more or less explicit forms. Suppose you think that there is an exhaustive or more truthful way to grasp it. In that case, you run into an error of simplification, as the vast and heterogeneous group of painters. Still, writers and poets have also identified and made the attraction their own by spying on it from their own and only instinct. Think, for example, of Fernando Botero. He made his art of his anatomical disproportions or those bodies in a sudden ecstasy of Egon Schiele or the quiet non-fixation of Gustav Klimt's golden eyes. Tamara de Lempicka has proposed a portrait of sensuality so personalized that her works are immediately recognizable, without the possibility of doubts. What does sensuality, and especially Tamara de Lempicka, have to do with this perfume? To me, the first time I smelled it, it reminded me of a gorgeous woman with scarlet red lipstick, dressed in a light white dress, with an enormous hat, a bouquet of fragrant flowers in her hand, walking in the park and left a trail of perfume behind her. That is "The Straw Hat," the picture that Tamara de Lempicka painted around 1930.

For this new collection of perfumes for the Zara label, Master Perfumer Émilie Coppermann from Symrise invites us to discover her secret Paris and some of her favorite places. With Parc Floral, the nose wanted to represent the atmosphere one breathes while walking in the botanical garden in the heart of the Bois de Vincennes estate, in the 12th arrondissement of Paris. She paid homage to iris, candid, clean, around which dry amber and transparent mineral tones blend nicely in a subtle musky veil for this fragrance. The official ZARA website reports the following olfactory pyramid: iris, amber, musks. However, there is a more detailed list on the label that seals the box: floral, jasmine, violet, iris, rosewood, and amber. Let's walk all together in the botanical garden and find out what Parc Floral is about.

Zara Parc Floral is an Eau de Parfum that forms part of the Zara Paris Stories fragrance collection, it is the 2nd chapter. The first squirt exudes an almost alcoholic and talc accord. I let the alcohol evaporate, and a sensation of talc fills my nostrils. It is a delicate, light powder that is pleasant on men's skin. Iris doesn't have the vibe of lipstick, and I don't find any resemblance to Dior Homme Original (2011) Eau de Toilette "Valentino Uomo (Eau de Toilette) | Valentino"; here, it is more floral and dewy, green. The abundant violet supports the purplish and yellow iris, reinforcing the metallic green while smothering the buttery facet. I love the openness; it is unique among the ZARA fragrances I own.

In the heart, Iris flower becomes dusty; I have a sort of baby-talcum sensation. Yes, there is a hint of indolic jasmine, even if it is not a dominant note, as if the white flowers were quite far from me, and I get only a slight fragrance through the light breeze. While I wear the perfume, sometimes I have an incense vibration when I move around my arms. Strange, there are no known notes to incense, olibanum, or any other resinous and smoky note. However, I see that even other auditors perceive such an incense agreement. The more the scent evolves, the drier. Imagine entering a store that sells books, documents, stationery. That is what I feel in the primary phase, the smell of the notebooks, of the white sheets.

Then the perfume calms down and moves closer to the body. A musky and mineral accord combined with the iris note gave me the sensation at first of an excellent, very light, and elegant base. However, the note amber is misleading. There are no sweet, resinous, spicy, or warm shades in there. Instead, salty, almost mineral, and dry ambergris tones are what I feel. The same pencil shaving dryness that we encounter with the Iso E Super molecule is a bit woody and spicy.

Although I cannot comment on the similarity of the smells breathed in Parc Floral, I can say that the perfume is unique and exquisite. It is a unisex fragrance to be worn on spring days and evenings, suitable for use in the office; it is not intrusive and is appropriate for a business breakfast, an appointment with friends. Passed with full marks.

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

Beautiful excursion into the night nature
Zara had this fragrance on sale. 10,99 Euro. Ok, no buying argument, but in this case finally a nice hit. Green incense in the forest.
When spraying on some fruit, barely vanilla, ambroxan and incense. With in the potpourri a lot of green, on first try a little strange conifer green (anyone who gardens knows what I mean...conifers have their own green, rather unpleasant scent about them - it softens somewhat with time), then the base becomes more incense-y and rounded. Sillage probably ok, but rather skin deep. I find this complex concoction quite compelling. Dark and woodsy, but not unpleasant. Not a floral park at all, but rather green-heavy and forest-mossy.

Definitely reminiscent of Lush Tramp, but much weaker yet present.

What remains: actually dark incense, very pleasant (artificial as in Serge Lutens Orpheline). The green remains, no vanilla is left, nothing floral, but rather dark-theatrical.
But if you want a hammer sillage of such a forest incense, you have to reach for Lush Tramp, which is sometimes too bulky for me. You have to dose the namely very carefully. This one sprays on well. For dark moments, unisex, lasts very long. For me, nothing fruity, nothing floral. The green coloring of the fabric in the purist bottle fits. Rather not so office appropriate if you are more reserved and colleague friendly. More like a reminder of the last walk in the woods with some medicinal hints. No everyday fragrance with floral lightness.

Parc Floral Memories
Probably not all users had the opportunity to be in Paris, so I consider myself lucky to have explored the city more than once.

When I experienced this fragrance for the first time, I felt again in Paris, specifically at Parc Floral. The mineral and floral notes are what stand out most initially, but after a few hours the woody and amber bounce off the nose. All of these notes are accompanied by powdery.
If you want to remember a moment you spent in this park, I recommend that you try this fragrance!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I am a frequent consumer of Zara, something that is easily perceived through my profile. I'm always looking for something different coming from this store, because not all fragrances are perfect. Still, I would like to highlight this new Zara collection, as it is incredible.
It will not be a perfume for all men, because in my opinion it is a unisex perfume. For older men, it doesn't seem like a good option. It is clearly a spring perfume, to use all day. Note that the performance is very good! Very good longevity and sillage.

Congratulations Zara!

It starts in an unusual way, with a mixture of mineral and floral notes. Then, it turns into a beautiful unisex aroma. Nice bargain!

I can only describe it as a juicy powdery musk. And a little bit of pencil crumbs. It's true that this is unusual but it doesn't stand out.

It's definitely unisex. Cute musky floral with decent longevity.
