He's getting close... ...but the original just remains the best.
Based on the frequent comparisons to Dior Home Intense, I simply had to order a bottle of the Zara 9.0. (What should I do wrong with 12,95 for 100ml???)

Excitedly the package torn open and applied directly to my left wrist.
Next, I ran into the bathroom and sprayed Dior Homme Intense on my right wrist.

Waited a short time and made the first comparison.

30 min. later compared again...

Finally about 8 hours later sniffed again.

To my conclusion:
My nose or even my brain can't find out all the components anyway, but that doesn't mean that I don't have an opinion about it :-)

I have to say that the Zara 9.0 does surprisingly well when you consider the price. Nevertheless, I like the fragrance component of Dior Home better and the durability is unbeatable. I also have to say that the Zara simply lacks that special something in the fragrance. It smells very similar to the Dior Home, but the certain kick is missing here. The Dior Home is also a bit more powdery, which I find very pleasant
Nevertheless, on a scale of 1-10, I can give the Zara 9.0 an 8 just for the fragrance. Considering what it costs, this is a real bargain
Clear recommendation for this incredibly good price

Worth every cent!
I've had Valentino Uomo on my wish list for some time now. However, I never wanted to afford it, because it is relatively cheap and I did not know when I should really apply it.

Via EssenceVitae I came across the alleged fragrance twin Zara 9.0, and ordered it in a package with Zara 8.0. After all, the fun costs only 18€ for 2x100ml, there you can not do much wrong. The matt glass bottles are labelled with the fragrances and look quite charming. I quickly put 8.0 aside and gave me a sprayer of 9.0 on my arm
The beginning almost frightened me, it is so similar to VU. Even if you know that 9.0 is a dupe, you're surprised how much the scents match. The Iris develops similarly beautifully as VU, only after an hour one notices first differences to the big brother. It simply lacks something of the sweet, vanilla creaminess and the light coffee note of VU. Valentino simply has the more mature fragrance in the long run.

I find the fragrance similar to VU, the durability remains quite clear under it. With me is about after 5 hours end with funny, there the forerunner holds out nevertheless times twice as long
Nevertheless, I can get over the small smears personally when I look at the bill.

Conclusion: Absolutely good clone, absolutely great DNA, absolute buy recommendation.

Cardamom and iris on a high level !
Yes, I know Dior Homme Intense and Valentino Uomo Intense, with all their differences:

Cocoa vs. leather, lipstick vs. vanilla, and some other minor differences. Most of it is true, at least I can perceive these different scents in both of them.

Zara 9.0 is for me an ingenious mixture of these two very nice scents. A slightly different iris than the DHI, less make-up bags, rather drier, more masculine powder. The leather chord, which I find a bit too dark in VUI, is, if at all, only very restrained in 9.0.

The symbiosis of these two directions has been achieved in an exceptionally professional way for a 10 Euro fragrance. The two "model fragrances" have sometimes led to a somewhat annoying, tedious cooperation after longer, or more frequent wearing, because of the strong expression of the above-mentioned fragrances.

9.0 is more comfortable for me, even if I wear it frequently, because it is more balanced. Actually, it's amazing at that price. But in any case it is closer to the VUI than to the DHI. I think it's because of the vanilla, which is relatively clearly visible in both of them.

The bottle is nice and of high quality and the sprayer is a little bit stingy concerning the amount, but it is not bad.
If the price/performance ratio is relevant for someone reading this, try this one. The risk/reward ratio is correct in any case.

THE Power Struggle Strong vs. Weak....
In principle, first(!) A really very nice fragrance...!

Zara's 9.0 starts fresh-spicy, where I perceive the cardamom accompanied by bergamot as dominant. The freshness says goodbye quietly after unfortunately already about 30 minutes and 9.0 thus develops relatively quickly in the direction of spicy-pudgy, accompanied by a discreet sweetness of iris, which resonates joyfully in the background.
It's just unfortunately getting quieter and quieter.... ...
Vetiver and cedar once again come out in a joint show of strength on their amber platform, which gives them the light powderiness, and let us guess what's still in there; but unfortunately(!) more does not come and it becomes quiet...

9.0 is a really very nice fragrance, in my opinion also always and everywhere wearable. -He accompanies the suit wearer in autumn just as stylish as the jogger in spring. If only the H/S would not be sooo weak with me.... -Then 9.0 would certainly be one of THE, and not just that one.

Say, I know you
A few weeks ago, I was strolling around in the city at Zara and thought I smelled a little of the perfumes. After a scent or two, I held this red bottle in my hand. Sprayed a little on my wrist and smelled it. A thought flashed through my mind like lightning. My last summer holiday in Cyprus in 2019. At that time I bought a perfume especially for the vacation, for the evenings. It should be something unique. At that time I decided on the fragrance Rituals roi d'orient. With this fragrance I got a lot of attention from the women and had a very nice and successful summer holiday 2019. They say that fragrance can strengthen experiences in your mind. I bought this fragrance directly from Zara to compare it at home with my Rituals roi d'orient. At home I sprayed one fragrance on my left arm and the other on my right. I promise you there is no difference! As if it were the same scent of water. I was fascinated by the Zara 9.0 fragrance which cost only 12.95€. The H/S is overwhelming for the price. It lasts at least 8 hours on my skin and 24 hours on clothes. Sweet, powdery, spicy... just delicious. Many ladies always sniff me like I am a drug when I am wearing this scent. It doesn't smell cheap at all!
So if you want to have a really good and unique fragrance and perhaps can't or don't want to spend a lot of money, Zara 9.0 is the perfect choice. It is an all-rounder. You can wear it almost always and I recommend it in the evening because of its sweetness

Sweet, powdery, gourmand. Dark iris with cedarwood in the base. Similar to Valentino Uomo EDT, but even sweeter.

A distinctive and wonderful fragrance, but its performance is very weak and not worth the effort.
A toned down version of Valentino Uomo.
