Prada Original Scent for women
Prada Original Scent, Prada starting with 2000 the company launched several fragrance as exclusive series available exclusively in Prada boutiques. Prada introduce first fragrance in 2004 for broader audience - Prada Eau de Parfum. Prada by Prada was oriental fragrance based on amber the intense accord of which imbues the entire composition. Very modern variant of the classic fragrance. In the composition amber is surrounded by four main essences (essential oils): Indian sandalwood, Indonesian patchouli, French labdanum resin, and Siam benzoin.
- Top notes: bergamot, bitter orange, mandarin, mimosa absolute
- Middle notes: rose absolute, patchouli absolute
- Base notes: labdanum, Tonka beans, vanilla, sandalwood, benzoin
For me prada by prada opens with a clean and quick bergamot, which rapidly transitions into a patchouli, vanilla, and sandalwood heart. The sandalwood is very prominent here, and ambergris bolsters the sweetness in the woods, to a velvety effect. The woods here remind me of the creamy woods in Creed's Bois du Portugal, without the macho lavender embellishments. A very restrained vanilla hangs back in the lightly-spiced base. The fragrance is woodsy, ambery, and smooth. I think it's well done, albeit prone to skin chemistry variances, as on my skin there are none of the florals. Very nice, very European in flavor, and worth every penny.
