“ Brand: Diesel / Type: Fragrance / Concentration: Eau de Toilette / Gender: for women „
This is such a bargain. I am always skeptical when I stumble across perfumes that are so cheap (I purchased this for £10 I am sure) and even more skeptical when you see that it is such a well known brand. Diesel is usually so expensive! I thought 'how can a Diesel perfume be so cheap? It must smell awful!" but at such a bargain price I decided to buy it. It's lovely, honestly! Very easy on the nose and my 75ml bottle has lasted me since Christmas time so far and there's still a fair few sprays left in there.
So much of the appeal of perfume is down to packaging. Marc Jacobs Daisies is beautiful and Ghost use distinctive bottles. This perfume, however, is very simple in packaging. The bottle is a dull shape and colour, but in all honesty, what do you expect for a tenner? If you have any sense, you'll appreciate that the packaging is such a silly thing to worry about, because it's what inside that counts, and it smells delicious!
The thought of spending £50 on perfume is so unappealing to me, yet I feel I have outgrown the idea of Impulse and Charlie sprays. This offers a cheap compromise. Whenever I wear this and people ask what I'm wearing, they always look impressed when I say Diesel. Little did they know I paid a tenner!
I have an addiction to perfumes. Currently I have around 60 bottles (and about 5 more after Christmas presents). I was bought Diesel Zero Plus Feminine for Christmas last year.
Diesel Zero Plus Feminine comes with really unique packaging. It kind of has a perspex dome which sits on a base. The base then has two raised plastic sections, which allows the bottle to the wedged in place on the base. When you first open a new bottle, there is a clamp on the spray section at the top to stop the bottle being sprayed accidentally. The bottle itself is a bright red colour, with a silver top. Diesel Zero Plus Feminine is written on the bottle, along with information about the perfume, for example, on my bottle is written eau de toilette 75ml.
This is one of the cheapest perfumes I have seen around. For a 75ml bottle, it will set you back only £10 which is extremely reasonable considering most perfumes are around £30.
I have held back from doing a perfume review before as it is fairly difficult to describe the smell of something. This perfume has a sweet, delicate smell. It has hints of coconut and grapefruit which compliment each other well making the perfume not to sickly sweet or overpowering. I think it is a very feminine smell and very much suits the name Diesel Zero Plus Feminine.
How Long Does The Smell Last?
I think this perfume is designed to be quite subtle, it is not overpowering and this often leaves me thinking that the small fades after a while as I cant actually smell it on myself a couple of hours after putting it on. However, people at work and friends often ask what perfume I am wearing hours after I have put it on so it does last for a good few hours, but obviously I can't smell it on myself - kind of worrying!
This perfume is a great addition to any collection. It is cheap compared to other perfumes on the market, has striking packaging and a lovely scent. The only disadvantage is that as the bottle is red, you are unable to see how much perfume you have left.
I have a large collection of perfumes and love trying different fragrances. I inherited a bottle of this Diesel: Zero Plus Feminine from my mum and reluctant to ever throw anything away I kept it and have been using it ever since, until it finally ran out this morning. Diesel: Zero Plus Feminine can be purchased from high street stores or online, and the current going price on www.amazon.co.uk is £9.49 for a 75ml bottle.
The perfume comes in a plastic package that is quite bulky and odd for this type of product. It is sealed within a large plastic dome that reminds me of old fashioned clocks! The bottle inside is a nice red colour and made of some sort of frosted glass. It looks plain but is nice enough, although I do really dislike the way that the glass feels in my hand and it feels quite unpleasant to touch because of the matte effect finish. The bottle has a small metal spritzer at the top of the neck, and there is no lid to cover it. This is a little annoying and impractical, although if you keep the outer packaging you can still store it securely in that to avoid it spraying accidentally.
Product description... "A fresh blend of plum, mandarin, jasmine and geranium with warm undertones of vanilla, tonka bean and musk."
When first applying the perfume I am immediately underwhelmed. Even from the first moment of application I can barely smell anything and it seems terribly plain in comparison to my other perfumes. There is a slight musky powdery scent to it, and that's about it. Sometimes I am able to notice a teensy hint of the vanilla coming through, but it is not overly sweet. The scent is very soft and understated which is not something that I like - when it comes to perfume I want mine to be noticeable and make a statement. I wasn't able to detect any of the fruity or floral notes that are listed in the description and found this quite disappointing. The fragrance of the perfume does not seem to evolve or develop over time as I'm wearing it, instead it just simply fades away. Even on my pulse points (where fragrance warms the most) I found that the fragrance did not react at all and there was no depth to the perfume.
Seeing as the scent is very weak even to begin with, I usually apply quite a bit more than I would normally and give a generous spray of perfume all around me to try and get the most out of it. This does not help the fact that the perfume has no staying power, and even when applying a lot of it the scent still fades away very quickly and becomes invisible. Maybe it's because the Eau de Toilette formula is not as intense as an Eau de Parfum. It is lucky that this perfume is so cheap (I can see the reason why!) because if you want to maintain any level of scent throughout the day you will need to reapply this every hour or two, which uses up a lot of perfume. The 75ml bottle is larger than most and it does come at a low price but I would say this does not give value for money.
This is a rather ordinary everyday perfume. I don't think there is anything special about it to give it a unique style that helps it to stand out from other fragrances. It's easily wearable as it is so plain, and is a good enough scent for everyday wear during the daytime. I would never wear this in the evening or to an event as it seems too plain to me. It's a very understanted barely there scent that would work best for casual occasions, although I tend to just wear it to work as I like to use scent every day but don't want anything too overpowering for in the office. I would not recommend giving this as a gift to any loved one as it is so dull!
This is an incredibly bland perfume that I would not recommend to anyone. I have also tested the mens version of Diesel: Zero Plus and strangely enough that is far superior for a low priced fragrance; it has a stronger spicy scent that is very warming and pleasant, although again it does not last for long. I'm glad that my bottle of this has finally gone and I won't be looking to replace it ever...
** My Experience **
I bought this as a cheap treat for myself from Ebay a couple of years ago and can honestly say that I was pleasantly surprised. I had never previously tried a Diesel perfume before but I am not a big fan of their clothing range as I find it a bit pricey and a bit common. Sorry if I have offended anyone who wears Diesel clothing - this is just my opinion!
** Packaging **
The perfume comes in quite a stylish form of packaging. The perfume bottle is encased in a clear plastic cylinder shaped tube so you can easily see the perfume bottle, name and brand through this packaging. The perfume bottle itself is red in colour with the name and brand displayed in silver colouring on the side of the bottle. There is no lid for this perfume apart from the clear tube like case which is a bit annoying when you are wanting to put in your handbag. The silver spray device at the top of the bottle is easy to use and provides an evenly distributed spray of the perfume when pressed. Overall, the packaging is quite stylish and unique in design although it does not portray a very feminine feel for a woman's fragrance.
** The Fragrance **
The perfume itself was launched in 1999 by Diesel. It has quite a deep scent which has oriental and woody qualities to it but also has a soft hint of some floral elements. Zero Plus Feminine blends notes of jasmine, geranium, plum and mandarin and contains warm undertones of musk and vanilla. The perfume is not too sweet nor fruity and has a lovely warmth and depth to it which I absolutely adore.
** Price **
The only negative about this fragrance is that it is quite hard to get hold of, so your best bet if you are looking to purchase this is to probably do it online. You can buy this fragrance from as little £8.50 for 75ml off of Ebay. An absolute bargain in my opinion!
When it comes to perfumes, I usually have to opt for the stronger smelling perfumes because literally the perfume is usually non-existent after its been on me for more than ten minutes. It is a struggle to find perfumes that have the staying power I need. I tend to opt for the more expensive perfumes, such as YSL Opium, simply because they're stronger and so seem to last a little longer. But happily I've found a cheaper option that works just as well for me.
I bought Diesel Zero Plus Feminine Eau de Toilette Spray (75 mls) from Amazon for just £9.99 - a price which I'm more than happy to pay!
The perfume comes in a distinctive deep red bottle made from metallic material with "DIESEL" scripted along the side and the brand information written along side it. There is a silver spray button which unfortunately does not have a cap on it which would be useful when traveling. I have opened my toilet bag before to find the nozzle has been pressed during transit and its left a wet, sticky mark inside my bag. To be honest it looks more like a nice body spray than a perfume and I don't think it stands out on my perfume shelf as one of the more sophisticated brands.
However, I do actually like the smell of the perfume which to me smells very summery and reminds me of holidays. The fragrance is quite sweet and fruity.....coconut, nectarines, cherry and a hint of something spicy like cinnamon. It is a warm smell.....a cosy fragrance that exudes freshness, health, friendliness and companionship. I don't feel there is anything intimate or seductive about this fragrance at all, and its the kind of thing I would spray on if I was going out to the cinema with friends rather than out on a hot date. I suggest its a day wear perfume thats perfect as an everyday spray when you don't really need to impress anyone. It smells "nice" but it is simple and doesn't really have the depth or complexity that I would normally demand from a perfume.
I don't find that the fragrance changes once I've sprayed it on....the initial smell is what seems to remain and because of this I think it can sometimes feel a little impersonal as it doesn't meld into being part of me. Having said that, the staying power of the perfume is pretty good and I've found I can wear it for about 8 hours without having to reapply.
Verdict: Recommended as a everyday spray when you don't need to impress.
This is a fragrance I've been using for a good ten years now ever since I developed an obsession for coconut scented products!
The bottle comes in a very unattractive plastic display case which in my opinion is very cheap and tacky looking and I fire it straight into the recycling bin. The actual bottle is a streamlined matte metallic red 'bullet' which is quite nice and a good size for throwing in a handbag. It does not come with a lid on the bottle which worries me but in the ten years I've been using it I've never had it leak out on me yet!
As I said there is a definite hint of coconut to this spray with a kind of woody smell in there too. It's a decent all year round scent although I'd say it's definitely more suited to the daytime.
To be honest this perfume has really had it's day and isn't as popular as it once was. I remember every girl at school having a bottle in their backpack, it was addictive! It's very inexpensive and you can usually pick it up for about £10 in Superdrug so a real bargain! Some may think it's 'cheap and nasty' for this price but it's not! The scent lingers a good long while and at that price you can use it like a body spray instead of saving it for little spritzes.
Overall I think this is one of the scents I'll always go back to because of it's slightly tropical notes of coconut. It's still the only remotely coconutty perfume I have ever found that lasts on the skin and clothes so it's definitely a bargain for a tenner! 5*!!!
I love perfume and try different scents on a regular basis. I tend to like the more expensive perfumes such as Dior or Chanel. But for daytime, office use I am happy to try out different perfume options. Even opting sometimes for high street perfumes from stores such as next. I have a very ecclectic taste in perfumes and therefore I have always been fortunate to like every perfume I have ever bought. Granted there are some I wont buy again, but I have never disliked a particular perfume so much that I feel compelled to throw it in the bin.
Well Im afraid that run of good fortune has come to an end. I was bought this perfume for Christmas. I have to say it is the most sickly, unpleasing and down right cheap smelling perfume I have ever had the misfortune of smelling.
When I first opened my gift on Christmas day, I have to say I was very disappointed with the packaging. Diesel is in my opinion trying to be a bit quirky by placing the bottle inside a clear cylinder container. However the cool and funky look I believe they are trying to achieve, just left me feeling cold. My immediate thoughts when I saw this packaging was that it looked really cheap and unimpressive.
Another thing that I found quite shocking is that there is no lid on this perfume. This further added to my negative feelings towards this perfume. I also hated the red glass bottle. I thought there was nothing appealing about this perfume bottle at all. The only things I could think of was that it was a bit useless as you cannot see how much perfume you have left as the glass is completely coloured. However I realise now I was being very optomistic as I dont really care how much perfume is left. Because I certainly wont be using it.
At first I thought the perfume was quite pleasant. Its initial smell is coconut. But this is mixed with a musky undertone. However after only ten minutes of having this perfume on I was feeling quite nauseous. I find it very sweet and sickly. But also it has a really awful cloyingly heavy strength which I find too overpowering. When I first smelt this perfume I realised that the scent reminded me of something, but I couldnt think what. After I was puzzled by this for a few days I suddenly realised what it smelt like, Pina colada. Now while I dont mind a little tipple of this when I am holiday. I dont want to smell of a chintzy cocktail.
So the conclusion of this story is I have now demoted this perfume to my bathroom shelf. It is awaiting the first person who is willing to take it off my hands. I think this perfume may be an ideal choice for someone who likes heavy and sweet scents. I think this scent is quite young and unsophisticated. Im sure my ten year old daughter thinks its 'Lush!' But she is not claiming it, as I just cant stand the smell of this horrible perfume in my house.
I was given Diesel: Zero plus feminine for my birthday as part of a set with the deoderising spray( i would definitly suggest investing in both products for the best results.). IAs far as smell is concerned it isn't too overpowering but is strong enough to be noticed. I recommend that you use the scent as an everyday scent as i do myself as i do as i'm not sure it has the special edge needed for special occasion but is certainly good enough to wear to work, school or the supermarket. One advantage of this scent is that it is quite long lasting and can always be topped up when on the go as the bottle is small enough to fit into a hand bag whilst being resiliant enough not to smash. Usually priced around £10 it makes the perfect budget perfume, or gift for a friend or relative also quite nice as a christmas stocking filler. The low price could be due to the lack lustre packaging giving it the appearance of a squashed bauble. But if you want an alternative its a good choice.
I bought this when I saw the price and needed something new and simple for wearing to work everyday. The fact that it was just £5 persuaded me so into the basket it went. This is the only Diesel perfume I had ever had so I had no preconceptions of the brand. This is an eau de toilette.
I can't say I love the look of the packaging. This is a 75ml bottle and it is dark red with the Diesel logo on the side. I am not sure what the bottle is made of but it feels almost rubbery. There is a silver push pump sprayer on top but it doesn't have a lid which means if you have it in your bag you can spray it accidentally. In all I would say that the packaging looks a bit cheap which given the price isn't that surprising I suppose.
When you spray it, it does seem rather overwhelming and very strong though it's not an eau de parfum. It has cinnamon, cloves, aniseed, vanilla, orange, bergamot, cardamom, nutmeg, jasmine, violet, lily of the valley, rose, patouchouli, amber, musk and helitrope. I think it's best described as an oriental. To me though it's just far too strong and really overwhelms me. I find it is too sickly and cloying and has been known to give me a headache. I feel that it just smells a bit cheap and dare I say it a bit like air freshener. This is not something I would buy again.
I got my Zero Plus Feminine for Christmas, about 4 years ago, and it's still going strong! It's my favourite smell, which is quite subtle (after about 10 minutes) and lasts all day.
The packaging it came in is quite unique and attractive, Diesel have really thought about how to attract customers, as the dome shaped plastic it comes in is very nice with a nice deep red colour on the bottle.
Overall I think that the pricing on this is very good and presentative is excellent. I usually get a 'Mmm what's that nice smell?' which turns out to be this perfume. I find it quite easy to find this in my bag as it isn't clear, it's a solid colour that's not difficult to find.
I would have liked for it to have come with a cap for over the nosel for when it goes in my bag, but this is just personal reasons and it hasn't leaked or sprayed in my bag.
Although it has lasted me 4 years (I wear it about once a week or so, although there was a time I didnt wear it for a year) I would like to know how much is left in the bottle, but there's no way of knowing unless you shake it, although this isn't an accurate guess.
When it comes to purchasing Perfumes I'm a bit of a demon and I adore buying them. I love and appreciate nice perfumes in my life and tend to buy alot (and get bought alot thankfully) of very expensive stuff however occasionally I will opt for something a bit cheaper price wise for more day time usage to try slow me down on battering the more expensive stuff I own!
This fragrance (for a 75ml) will you set back probably at most about a tenner however I got mine in T.J Hughes for £4.99 last week though I have paid a tenner before in Boots (when I bought it for someone else) and this is widely available in a variety of stores.
It comes in a clear domed shaped outer casing with no information on it at all. The bottle is a dark red metallic bottle with metallic silver writing on it (written on length-ways down the bottle) which simply tells me it's Diesel, Fragrances, Zero Plus Feminine Eau De Toilette, 75ml, 2,5 fl.oz, 82% Vol. That's it in the information stakes apart from there being a red sticky label on the base of the bottle that tells me (again in silver writing) that it's made by Marbert Cosmetics and is flammable and although it's called feminine in my view it really doesn't appear that way. It's simple, has no lid and simply has an exposed silver push button sprayer to the top. I guess you would say it's modern but it isn't something you'd look at twice due to it's raging beauty or anything lol
Well of course it sprays out very easily. You simply push the button and small squirts come out evenly. It goes on quite wet but dries immediately leaving absolutely no sticky/greasy residue at all on the skin. So you can use it and forget about it...although not quite..due to it's very strong fragrance....
Fragrance wise it's actually a blend of fresh blend of plum, mandarin, jasmine and geranium with warm undertones of vanilla, tonka bean and musk and deemed to be an Oriental fragrance. Now that's an odd blend of ingredients and I wasn't expecting all of them blended together at all as my nasal passages tell me it's coconut with a musk smell giving it depth and vanilla giving it a sweetness but I wasn't expecting no coconut to be listed at all so that is confusing to my brain lol!
It's an unusual blend and smells smooth and rich. However this really isn't for me at all. It's clean and fresh and I'd say if you like it it's best for evening use and not only does it spray on strong it stays strong for about three hours. Personally I find this rather sickly till after the three hours pass when it does start to fade which is then when I don't mind it too much but it's still strong and doesn't lose it's fragrance completely!
You don't need a load of this on, a few squirts really is enough or you can start to feel a bit sick (and it occasionally gives me a migraine for some reason) but for me really this is simply a very heavy smelling fragrance which you don't expect from a coconutty smelling perfume!
This review is also under this same name in Ciao.
While shopping in one of my local discount stores I noticed a selection of perfumes at heavily reduced rates. Most of them I had smelt in the past or had never heard of which is what led me to select Diesel Zero Plus Feminine for Women from the shelf. As it was priced so reasonably at only £4.99 for a 75ml bottle I decided I had to have a little splurge that day and it found its way into my basket.
Diesel is arguably most well known for its clothing range oppose to its fragrance range which is quite small. It's an Italian brand which was founded in the 1990s and is most recognised for producing Diesel jeans although the range has now expanded to include other clothing items for both males and females, targeting the youth audience. The brand itself is quite stylish, vibrant and young.
The Diesel Zero Plus range was launched back in 1999 and consisted of a male and female fragrance. There is also a male deodorant in the range although no female counterpart as far as I am aware and no further products in the range.
The packaging is quite unique and consists of an outer, clear plastic dome which sits on a white base. The bottle itself is a rich red colour with a silver press down dispenser top, similar to the majority of other perfume bottles out there. There's no actual lid to the perfume which means it's incredibly hard to carry it around in your bag or luggage without it being sprayed onto the surrounding items when it comes into contact with other objects.
The fragrance is described as being "an almost edible fragrance with coconut milk, strawberry, vanilla and cherry" which is all honesty makes it sound more like a cocktail or a smoothie than a perfume. In my opinion it is quite a strong smell and I personally think it would be more suited in an aftershave than a perfume. The coconut hint is almost overpowering and does make it quite sickly. It's certainly not what you'd call a fresh or light fragrance but instead hangs quite heavy.
I applied it when I first returned home and found that the scent had all but gone within an hour or two... thankfully. If I had of liked the scent I would have been extremely disappointed that it faded so quickly, if you were wearing this for a full day you would easily have to reapply it about six times to keep the scent there, which certainly isn't ideal in my opinion.
It certainly smells more manly in my opinion and I threw my bottle away without even half using it. The coconut scent was strong and quite sweet while the perfume itself didn't smell much different to an Air Wick air freshener or something similar. In fact I probably should have kept onto my bottle and used it as a bathroom air freshener! Unsurprisingly the perfume is remarkably cheap, if you do wish to get your hands on a bottle (which I would strongly urge you against) you can find a 75ml bottle for only £9.99 at The Perfume Shop.
Thanks for reading.
i love this fragrance it a very very coconuty scent which when i close my eyes i can smell paradise.
i bought this perfume firstly because i like the way they made a see through dome and positioned in side is a bottle with the nicest shade of red i have ever seen and it caught my eye instantly, the second thing was the very cheap price i paid for it ( it was that cheap i though well if i don't like the perfume it was worth the money just to put with my other perfume bottles because it looks so nice).
when i got home i sprayed a small amount on my wrist and at first i was not sure weather i liked it or not but after a few mins the scent died down and i could constantly smell coconut which made me hungry and the more i smelt it the better it got then my friend commented on how nice i smelled and that was me hooked.
the only caution you need to take is not to spray too much on or it can be over bearing a little goes a long way.
Diesel zero plus feminine
I got a sample of this perfume through the post a while back and it smelled nice. I didn't really have a particular perfume I liked wearing at the time and it was near my birthday so I asked my mum to buy me some as a present. This perfume has now turned into my favorite perfume and I wear it every day.
The bottle for the perfume is a deep red and looks good. It is rounded and has the writing written down the side of it. I was immediately attracted to the shape and colour of the bottle, though as many say appearance isn't everything.
According to Diesel, it contains: coconut milk, strawberry, vanilla, cherry, red apple, cassis, cassia oil, plum, muguet, maroccan rose, pitosforum (a leafy plant), bitter orange, black pepper, nutmeg, magnolia leaves, pineapple, orchid, orris (a root, which gives perfume lasting power), cinnamon, sandalwood, musk, amber, jasmine, and cedarwood! An awful lot of ingredients in my opinion but then it does make it smell great so I'm not complaining!!
When I smelt the sample I thought it smelt really fresh but couldn't quite place what the smell was. After using it for a while I have had many comments on it, all good I must add, and most people think it smells very coconut like. I however can smell the hint of coconut but also smell a lot of other scents mixed in such as jasmine and nutmeg.
I must say that whatever the scent is that each person picks up from it, it is great. I love the smell and now use this perfume every day.
You can also buy this scent in:
These can be found in some places in nice gift sets and are perfect for a present for a loved one.
The 75ml bottle can be found in town for around £10 which in my view is very cheap for what you get! A small amount gives a lasting smell and my bottle of it lasts a long time even though I use it every day!
I would recommend this to any girl who's looking for a new fragrance to try. It is a great smell, greatly priced, and definitely worth buying!
Launched by the design house of Diesel in 1999, DIESEL ZERO PLUS is classified as a refreshing, oriental, woody fragrance / This feminine scent possesses a blend of soft florals / It is recommended for daytime wear /
