I got the new Prada Infusion de Rose Fragrance in the mail on Monday and one of the first things I noticed about it was the interesting art on the box.
The box is really rather brilliant! Vibrant, deep pink roses decorate the front and the back has a sketched angel/fairy design. Very fantasy art like and not really what I’d expect from the brand.
Infusion de Rose is the newest member of the Infusion Collection and features rose as its master note.
Let’s take a look!
If you enjoy more traditional rose scents, well, Prada Infusion de Rose isn’t exactly going to give it to you. This one is pretty complex and has a certain maturity about it that won’t quite appeal to everyone.
A dominate note of freshly cut rose permeates the blend but you have alot of complex layers that add a powdery overall finish to the fragrance.
Peppermint brings something fresh to the rose however it’s not easy to detect as a note. Brazilian Mate South American Mate brings the fragrance into a green place and embodies the floral notes giving them depth. I think the Beeswax note, which mimics honey, is what adds the maturity and powder to the blend and it’s probably this note that keeps me from truly loving Infusion de Rose.
The blend isn’t particularly fresh but has a cloying floral surrounding it with a deeper green level and a heavy dominate honey note that morphs everything and brings it into the realm of heaviness.
Without a doubt you have alot of unique complexity here but Prada Infusion de Rose isn’t quite my favorite Infusion from Prada and proves a little too heavy for me.
Those who like heavier florals with powdery dry downs will enjoy this. It really begs to be sniffed prior to making a full decision on it.
Have you tried it?
