Just when I thought Zara's Tobacco Collection Rich | Warm | Addictive was the best offer from their collection, here comes ZARA EXCLUSIVE OUD... a gorgeous and exquisite oriental woody scent with notes of saffron, cinnamon, cedar, agarwood, patchouli, and leather in EDP concentration.


With solid performance, above average quality and surprisingly low price, ZEO has become the star of my cologne collection. Please do yourself a favor and try it, you will not be disappointed.

Friends, 2017 is the year of Zara. They're really shocking the fragrance world. Awesome job Zara!

Welcome to Light Bleu de Chanel (Eau Fraîche?)

Shame on Chanel for watering down the glorious Eau de Toilette presentation. Horrible longevity of 4-5 hours. Previously owned/wore 4 x 100ml bottles in 2012 and the recent one I got, batch 0210 (2016-02), is for sure a reformulation of the original (2010-2012)

Shame on you Chanel! Reasons? To favor the sale of the Eau de Parfum version?

Originally, I applied 4-5 sprays and it will last 8-10 hours. With the current one, I need 10-14 sprays to make it last the same amount of time. I guess the idea is to have people buy the most expensive EDP version in favor of the EDT. Complete disappointment to say the least.


Just can't get enough of it. A*Men DNA is present, sweet, spicy, leathery. More wearable than the original. Very long longevity, great performance. LOVE IT so much!!! The price was a steal, will order two more bottles. Totally underrated it.

What a masterpiece! As good as the EDT version, a bit stronger, bolder, better suited for fall or spring mornings but wearable all year round if desired. Perfect combination of citruses and wood for men over 35. I will recommend using EDT version for the office as the EDP is better for evenings and maybe nights out with male friends.

This is truly another Chanel classic! Very manly, for a mature type of men, safe for work, perfect for fall/winter, amazing dry down, it has a perfect blend of ingredients with a gorgeous vanilla and Tonka bean with the quality that characterizes the house. I didn't like it when it was originally released but now that I'm older I really appreciate and love it. I currently own most the Allure flankers and this one is a gem, the father of the line.
