Zara is quickly becoming one of the most popular places to shop for the best perfume for women. The brand has a wide range of scents and have even collaborated with Jo Malone CBE on a special line of fragrances.

Much like its clothing, Zara's fragrances sell out in record time, and I was keen to see what all the fuss was about. As a beauty writer who is obsessed with perfume, I have tried my fair share of scents, and I always give my honest opinion on whether I like them or not.

From the best fresh perfumes to the best long-lasting perfumes , it's safe to say that Zara has ticked all the boxes with its fragrances. There is something for everyone, but in my opinion, the below six options are the best you can buy.

Not only do they smell amazing, but all of these perfumes are under £30 which makes them even more appealing. They are perfect for throwing in your bag to apply throughout the day, and I always get compliments whenever I wear them out and about. In fact, after borrowing them, most of my friends have gone to Zara and purchased the perfumes themselves.

So, keep on scrolling for my top picks, and for more inspiration, don't forget to check out our guides to the best summer perfumes, best Jo Malone perfumes and the best Chanel perfumes to buy now. You perfume collection is about to get a whole lot better...
