That mix of grape drink and Windex that's in everything - usually I hate scents that use those, but Prada Amber pretties them up with a lot of upfront white flowers, sparkling soapy ginger, and a subtly peachy old fashioned butterscotchy amber. There was a 99% chance this would turn out terrible, but somehow they got the mix just right and it's actually quite beautiful, clean and bright but also rich and complex. The creamy cinnamon tobacco basenotes are fantastic as well, though I wish they were more concentrated. A surprise thumbs up for actually making me enjoy those overused pedestrian topnotes.
Prada Amber Pour Homme is my go to suit and tie fragrance. It is very inoffensive. The name is misleading because I don't detect any amber in this. To me, this smells like soap. Not a normal soap, a fancy, floral soap. Imagine that you are at a fancy spa at a 5 star hotel and you wash yourself with their soap... That is the kind of vibe this gives off. If you want to smell clean, this is the fragrance for you.
The projection on this is pretty normal. Nothing special in that department. It does last on my skin for a long time though, about 7 hours.
It's not much of a compliment getter, which I assume is because of the projection. I have asked people to smell it and give me their opinions and nobody has given a negative remark. All of them also said that it smelled like soap. A few people did say that It smelled feminine and could be a unisex fragrance, which I do agree with. This can be slightly feminine, but not enough to make me feel uncomfortable wearing it.
From a sample... Very modern, unconventional fragrance from Prada that is subtle, yet a bit daring in it's own right. PApH is a soft citrus-floral fragrance that wouldn't be out of place on a woman's dresser, laundry room or shower soap dish. The fragrance is promoted as a masculine scent, but could easily be unisex or even feminine without striking forward in any definitive direction.
From the opening you get a soft citrus-floral that quickly combines with a patchouli-tonka bean middle, giving the fragrance a decidedly clean and fresh feeling. The laundry and hand soap analogy is fair, but not entirely accurate IMO. There's a faint hint a soft leather in the background and perhaps a spice, but the scent dries close to it's opening through out.
I really like it, although it may be a challenge for those who want to project masculinity. It has a certain class of refinement to it, and it's definitely unique, at least to me. I'm not sure I would wear it very often, because it seems better suited to formal dress than my profession requires. However, I give it a Thumbs Up none the less, but would encourage a trial before purchasing.
So unique. Unbelievable fragrance. My go-to suit and tie work scent. I suppose it smells like soap, but not your typical bar soap like Prada's Infusion D'homme. This is so smooth and rich, with a deep floral and hint of spice, and lasts the entire day. 8-plus hours easy, every time. Absolute classic.
Great professional scent.this is one of the best in my collection.it is very nice,sweet.clean and unique freagrance!
I've wear it in the summer and in the winter.is really seductive and hot.It's longevity is amazing on my skin.
On my opinion it is at the same time modern and suitable for romantic momenets and then office use!
Prada is in High Quality for collecsion.
Thank you PRADA.
