Prada Infusion d’Iris Eau De Toilette Review

Has anyone ever smelled Lush V? Or Lush Bathos? Both have this incredible note of violet that’s so beautiful yet so strong it gives you a headache.

How can something as delicate as a violet come across so terribly harsh?

I’ve always tolerated both V and Bathos but I secretly wished that Lush would tame them down and create a more softer, gentler scent.

In comes Prada Infusion D’iris which is exactly what I had always hoped for in a violet scent. So soft, so delicate, so very perfect.

Take a look!

Three years after the introduction of Prada d’Iris Eau de Parfum, Prada reveals its latest addition to the Iris Collection, Infusion, d’Iris Eau de Toilette, a softer, gentle, feminine floral scent guaranteed to make you feel oh so pretty.

I’m not partial to straight floral scents but Infusion d’Iris is one of those addicting scents that will have you sniffing your wrists constantly. It combines mellow notes of lily of the valley, powder violet, and freshly ironed linen to create a caress of fragrance that’s uniquely feminine and perfect.

The scent starts out with a dominate note of violet which I feel stays with the scent all day. I felt like the lily, cedar, and linen notes in the blend take a back seat to an aggressive yet delicate note of violet which creeps up and outward enveloping you in a comforting, sensual purity of violet.

Although an Eau de Toilette format it still manages to last and last and last as the day progresses. It’s not a scent that gives off amazing throw but it is one that wraps around those closest to you and surrounds your space in softness. It’s a scent that reminds me of freshly ironed sheets, naps on a rainy day, and just a comforting softness that can’t be described.   What it lacks in throw, it more than makes up for in linger!

If you really love Bathos and V from Lush, this is something you’ll enjoy immensely particularly because it lacks the harsh boldness that both V and Bathos has and instead relies on a beautiful softness to capture your attention.

Definitely have a small test your next stop at counter. It recently launched so you can find it at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, etc…..take a little sniff and tell me what you think, I imagine you’ll fall as fast for it as a I did particularly if you love softer floral fragrances.

Loves it.

Perfectly simply, beautiful, and all sorts of addictive.

    Sounds good, Muse! I love Bathos for its violent scent. I was at Nordies the other day, and sampled Balenciaga Paris Eau de Parfum — which is also a lovely soft violet, with almost no other notes.

    I’ve been eyeing this perfume for some time now. Every time I’m in Sephora I treat myself to a spritz. I was going to wait till Sephora Friends and Family to make it my very own, but I don’t know if I can wait any longer!
