Prada Infusion de Tubereuse

Prada-Infusion-D'Tuberrose-Eau-de-Parfum I try not to just like something because of the name and sometimes wish I could speed up time to open a fragrance, spray it on, and then repackage it up again so I didn’t know what it was and can give my honest opinion of it. I have to say though that the new PRADA Infusion de Tubéreuse Eau de Parfum Spray ($74/1.75oz, $100/3.4oz, $135/6.7oz @ hsn.com) from their Ephemeral Infusions line is really taking front and center right now. And I’m pretty sure it’s not because of the name! I mean Spring is here and the season just goes hand-in-hand with rose, but this one has an unexpected twist to it – Petitgrain Bigarade (an essential oil in the citrus family), Blood Orange from Italy, and Dynamone (a woody note that they say helps brings the sensuality to the scent).

 

Now I know I don’t talk much about the noses behind some of the fragrances I write about but they too gain a sort of fame in the fragrance world. Like this one was created by Daniela Andrier, who is has been behind a lot of the Prada frags and some for Gucci, YSL and even one for lingerie brand La Perla. So how does one become a famed nose in the fragrance world? I mean, have you ever met one? I know like every other profession, you attend a formal school and I read the Ms. Andrier attended perfume in Roure, France, so I guess this will go on my bucket list, to meet and have a conversation with a famous nose.

I haven't tried this one yet. I'm a big fan of tuberose, but on the other hand haven't got on with any of the previous Prada fragrances. It's a gamble if I'm going to like it - but am planning to try it soon!

Thanks for the great review.

Hi, yes, if you are a fan of tuberose, you'll probably like this one as it has just a dash of different scents, so it's a whole new twist. Thanks for reading!
