Zut Fragrance Reviews


the top notes are very fruity and sweet. a touch of powder.
there is LEATHER in this one!
plenty of leather. birth tar.
Schiaparelli does Shalimar. similarities, but Zut is less serious.
perhaps the original Zut differs from my 1990's tester. i suspect that Nathalie Feisthauer updated it a little, 40 years later.
but i am talking birth tar and powdery vanilla creamy woods ylang pudding with a few berries on top.
not sure i can smell incense, but the birch tar leather is there.
i am going to have to test this a few more times.
more leather than Shalimar, less citrus, brighter, heaps of fun.
the floral notes slowly bloom and dry down alongside the sweet creamy woods and amber.
wearing Zut is like eating a lovely scrumptious cream pudding in a French restaurant. Damn good. very Schiaparelli. A woman who i have always admired and the reason why i went to study a Fashion degree several years before this little number was re-released.
this is not a floral or a fruity floral, it shouts of luscious Oriental to me.


Light, musky, woody and refined. I bought this on a blind buy based on the notes and I really like it for daily wear, while out and about or at home. It's soft, subtle and sophisticated. I could be in an automobile with Zut and enjoy it.

In my experience the black currant, jasmine and incense peek out now and again,and it doesn't enter the soapy realm upon drydown. Bonus! Black currant notes often go sour on me, but not with this. Lasts at least 4 hours with moderate sillage.


I am most likely reviewing the re-released version of Zut presented in 1998.

This fragrance is very sweet, almost like strawberry jam. It is however a nicely done sweet fragrance, nowhere near as bad as some of those tacky candy-like celebrity scents we see these days.

Zut opens with sweetened jasmine and syrupy berries. It attempts to be a gourmand, however as it begins to develop, it becomes more of a fruity floral.

This fragrance seems a lot more dated than it is. It seems like something that should have been made in the 80's rather than the late 90's. A perfume boutique owner was the one that introduced me to this perfume, simply because she remembered it from her own youth. It was apparently her scent of choice when she was my age.

The drydown is quite lovely with a soft, vanillary incense note and a touch of musk. Zut actually lasts considerably well and the sillage is also quite prominent.

It may be a struggle to get hold of this fragrance these days. I never heard of its existence until recently and I've only ever seen it in this particular boutique hidden in the outskirts of the city.
