Zadig & Voltaire Fragrances

It is a rare occasion that I smell a fragrance and it wows me immediately, infact it is highly likely that the scent in question might take a good 2-3 weeks before I decide that I even like it. This is not the case with Zadig & Voltaire, it did wow me from the very first spritz and I just absolutely, utterly and without question adore it.

You may have come across the Zadig & Voltaire brand within the world of fashion. With items which are edgy and chic they have a handbag and shoe collection to die for, they are slightly out of my budget, but a girl can dream and for now (and perhaps forever) I am more than delighted with my fragrance.

With a fragrance for both male and female they have a few notes in common but smells incredibly different but just simply stunning. 


THIS IS HER! The female fragrance is described as being sensual, free and jauntily. The woody, floral and gourmand This is Her, signed by perfumer duo Sidonie Lancesseur and Michel Almairac, contains notes of pink pepper, Sambac jasmine, milky chestnut cream, vanilla and sandalwood. As a scent it is cosy, it is sweet, it is indulgent and most definitely unique. I love that it smells so totally different to anything else I currently own or have tried and on the skin it starts out being quite floral until the fragrance settles and is mixed with vanilla and sandalwood it becomes just beautiful and I cannot get enough of it.  Impressively it is one of those scents which lasts all day without the need to re-apply and it can still be smelt the following day if it is applied to clothing.

This is her comes available in 30ml, 50ml and 100ml bottles and is priced between £50 and £75 which is an absolute bargain and for me, this is a scent which will forever remain within my collection.


THIS IS HIM! is described as being manly, wild and free. It is made of grapefruit aroma, black pepper, incense, milky sandalwood and vanilla. Upon opening there is an initial grapefruit blast which is fresh and invigorating and it soon fades into quite a sharp vanilla scent which when mixed with the incense it wows. Once the smokiness of the incense and black pepper settles on the skin the note of Sandalwood comes into its own and it is just a fantastic scent. Once the mister spritzes himself with it, no matter which room he is in, I can smell it and it is just truly divine and again, it is long lasting and the strong scent does last all day.

Once he comes home from work some 9 hours after leaving the house, I can still smell This is Him quite clearly. This is her comes available in 30ml, 50ml and 100ml bottles and is priced between £35 and £60 which is an absolute bargain and for me, this is a scent which will forever remain within my collection.


This is Her denotes the female version and it arrives in an all white box which is as plain as a box can be when featuring just the brand name, some may call it chic. The bottle inside is very edgy with clean lines and a rough edge which stands out to attract your attention, it is only when you investigate the male fragrance do you realise that the bottles fit together, almost as if they should be one.

If you haven't guessed already, I am besotted with these fragrances and wear This Is Her pretty much everyday I love it that much. It is the perfect gift for anyone who loves fragrance and likes something that little bit different because this is exactly what you get.
