I don't like rose perfumes...
...Therefore, this little water was originally not interesting for me. Because the Zara fragrances are generally very popular, however, it did not take long until some ladies laughed at me on YouTube-with Rose Gourmand in the hand...

They compared it to Intense Cafè by Montale, which I've never tried either, by the way. But coffee I like, so I tried this fragrance on occasion after all. Admittedly, I was not taken at first. Rose, that is. But as soon as I left Zara, I couldn't stop sniffing my wrist. How could it be that the rose no longer bothered me, but actually pleased me?

What can I say, I think this combination with vanilla, powdery notes and some spices is just brilliant. Not all of it is listed, but Zara is generally 'creative' with its specifications there. Anyway, I smell these things. Coffee perhaps rather only because of the association, if at all.

One should hope for no espresso here, but really the feeling of sitting in a noble cafe: The air is warm because of the hot drinks. You yourself sit comfortably in velvet-clad chairs and think about what you want to snack on, because everything looked so delicious.

There one remains then also some hours. Of course, the sillage decreases over time, but my test sprayer I could still smell when going to sleep!

It took then but quite a while until the fragrance was allowed to move in with me. Finally, he is for my relations but rather atypical. When he was then half a year later but still on my wish list, it should be just so-and I was immediately happy when I sprayed him on.

I hope that Zara manages to maintain this quality and against more Gourmands in the assortment I personally would have nothing ;)

Rose vanilla liqueur in strong coffee
At me actually comes out a clear coffee note, but not a weak cappuccino but clearly kröftger as with coffee Lungo or espresso refined with rose vanilla liqueur which overlays the coffee sillage and mixes with it. In between I also get something slightly powdery, as if the scent of rose soap briefly comes to the nose while sipping the coffee. Somehow I associate with it also dark chocolate, probably because you eat the to it.

Has me in the office with coronakonformem distance also already brought a compliment and demand what I would wear

A rose is a rose is a rose is a rose is a rose is a rose is a rose
My third Zara fragrance starts with a slightly alcoholic note that quickly fades. After that, a non-sweet rose gradually creeps to the surface. It becomes more and more intense starting with a slightly green note it changes to a floral component. In my mind's eye I see an elegant closed white flower that opens more and more and unfolds into a very feminine round open rose blossom. All very pleasing and floral.

But where is my beloved amber? The amber is for me not explicitly to smell out. Perhaps the amber gives the rose the impression of a green fragrance, which is very present at first.

And where is the promised vanilla? So far, everything is almost a bit too floral for me. I wait and wait and wait. Disappointment spreads.

Please don't get me wrong. I feel "Rose Gourmand Women" as a beautiful intense rose fragrance. But my expectation hoped for a unique rose-vanilla composition. There is no hint of this on my skin nor on my test strip. From the vanilla far and wide no trace.

Conclusion: for me it is unfortunately not a gourmandiger fragrance, but only a beautiful, intense rose fragrance, as there are already many. Too bad.

P.S. Maybe I will give this fragrance a second chance and test it again. Let's see.

Wise And Astute Vanilla Meets The Smoothest Rose
When I say that a fragrance is "breathtaking", do you believe me? Like a sumptuous, wonderful, creamy, and flowery musky indulgence that interrupts my breathing as I eagerly plunge in for a second sniff? Sweet enough to captivate me, rich enough to keep me, and complex enough to seduce me, Rose Gourmand is an absolute star of the Exclusive line. It is one of the sexiest floral gourmands I've ever smelled. I'm still catching my breath.

Rose Gourmand is the latest piece from the ZARA Exclusive Collection that I added to my wardrobe. I put it back the first time I tested it because the very first few moments were very similar to Montale's Roses Musk, which I already own. Therefore, I moved further. After leaving the store, the perfume took a different turn, becoming creamier and softer than Montale, which instead takes on a more musky and powdery appearance. Let me say that the more it warms and develops, the more it resembles Montale Intense Cafe, a brighter version of that without the coffee accord, of course. Still, the floral, gourmand and creamy nuances are essentially the same. I must point out that this perfume changes a lot on the skin compared to the paper strip. On the surface, it has a delightful scent, similar to candy; on the skin, that candy scent turns into a much softer and slightly powdery gourmand accord.

The Rose Gourmand greets me with a faint, zesty taste of lemon vodka, a kind of alcoholic drink. This lasts only a while before a sweet blend of delicious caramelized rose petals dipped in vanilla cream soars to the top. There is an intoxicating and addictive smell of rose and vanilla essence here. This bouquet unfolds with a slightly fresh scent. However, this freshness is somewhat eclipsed by the sweet notes. Notes like sugar and vanilla take a sharp prominence, only to be accompanied by a fresher, balancing scent of rose.

The heart continues with notes of sugar and rose. This perfume has one foot in the floral realm and one in the gourmand realm. It makes me wonder if there is such a thing as rose milk caramel. Overall, you get a gorgeous, sweet, gourmand fragrance with lovely hints of rose sprinkled in.

Finally, the dry down comes, with the nuances of clean white musk, a spoonful of smooth vanilla, and just a hint of dry cedar. White musk helps center the composition. When this cologne starts to dry down, the pleasant notes remain present and mellow out a bit. The vanilla is very pronounced, and the rose is upfront with musk lingering in the background. Embraced by an aura of luxurious exotic seduction, the scent tells a breathtaking love story. This aura lasts for hours, simmering to a low hum of the softest vanilla you could dream of.

Rose Gourmand is a fantastic fragrance to wear during the colder seasons. This fragrance is somewhat sweet and very strong, making it too offensive to wear in the warmer seasons. Nonetheless, during the colder months, this fragrance is a real gem. I think this perfume is suitable for work. You can also wear it during the evening, or on a date; you will feel very sexy and sensual. The floral scent makes this a compliment-worthy fragrance, and you'll be sure to leave a lasting impression. It smells like a combination of roses and vanilla - a simple combination but incredibly pleasant to the nose. It also has excellent projection, a long shelf life, and smells smooth. The radiant rose in full bloom, married to buttery vanilla, not too sweet, that wears well until it fades softly into a skin scent in about 5-6 hours in the northern Italian autumn climate. I can't wait to try the performance of this perfume in the coming winter months!

This review bases upon an 80ml (2.7 fl. oz) I own since October 2020.

Not your typical gourmand, but still a fan
I don't usually prefer rose in my perfumes. I dislike everything that smells floral. I was so curious about this one that I gave it a try. And let me tell you that I really didn't like it at first. The first notes of rose hit you in the face and I was kinda disappointed. Few days later, I smell this perfume on a co worker and I think to myself: she smells SO nice. I immediately knew it's this perfume. So, I tried wearing it again the next day and I started to love it. The rose is sharp, yes, but once it settles down it creates this creamy, warm, luxurious sent. It reminds me of an rich Arab lady. It's also not your typical gourmand smell, but something different, more sophisticated. I sprayed it at 7:30 in the morning and still smelled it at the end of the day. Just for the price, I'd give this one a try.

Its scent generates olfactory fatigue from the beginning, yes, both vanilla and rose are perceived very well. But I dislike this

It smells a lot like vanilla but then it settles more towards the floral side and the rose appears. I like the female version better. Great!

An opulent rose, carnal and round and not at all old style.
I find it better than the original by Montale and it's cheap!

Enjoyable creamy, gourmand, smooth scent vanilla-centered toned by dainty rose petals which make this perfume unisex. Congratulations Zara!
