Luna Rossa and
Black pepper extremified
With Prada's best schticks.

3 sprays of this is enough to gently fill a room with incensy/woody/peppery/vanillic lavendar heaven. An above average designer, lives up to the extreme moniker as well.

Whew, definitely a turbocharged flanker of the original Luna Rossa. The pepper is very noticeable, dancing around with the lavender and juniper notes in the midst of this strong potion, mellowed out just a sniglet by the vanilla. Can become cloying if oversprayed.

Clean & Sensual...

This is one which is an all round pleasant experience. I get pepper, lavender and vanilla, with a hint of florals in the background. It's traditionally masculine but I can't see why it wouldn't be suitable for a woman as well.

It reminds me of other fragrances with a lavender and vanilla combination. The addition of pepper and spices also serves to make the fragrance a little different in it's approach. I do like it, and would wear it from time to time. I have been impressed so far with the fragrances I have tried from Prada. This one is no exception.

A very well done fall/winter scent. Great for office or casual settings in my opinion. Lasts close to 7 hours on me with solid projection in the 2 hour range (with 3 sprays). I really like the peppery/spicy/sweet start then it settles into a great skin scent of bergamot and amber in the dry down. Through out the vanilla hits me here and there. Overall a winner and available for a decent price. Enjoy!

Right after I spray on Prada Luna Rossa EXTREME on my skin...several things come to mind.

As noted by others:
A spicy cinnamon mixed with some amber and vanilla.
The lavender is short lived and to my nose, only slightly detectable.
It may also have some juniper berries and some bergamot but I came to this review realizing absolutely none of those (last two) notes. It's not a "bomb"... Quite light actually.
Something "powdery" hits me as well. Crazy??

So... As I said.. several things come to mind shortly after I spray this on my skin...

Yes indeed....Several things....

Ummm, unfortunately-----NONE ARE EXTREME!

Especially for a bottle with the word "EXTREME" on it...

The projection .....mild (for me)

The longevity...mediocre (4-5 hours...after's skin a scent...(for me)

Now the scent itself is a different story.
It's not bad... quite pleasant actually.

Linear ( almost)

But IMO it's not an adequate performer-again, especially for an EXTREME.

Furthermore, the DNA here is not much different than several other fragrances I own.
Most of which use slightly better materials and are, as a general rule, better (much) performers.

The most notable (of these other frags) to me is YSL Opium Pour Homme.
Edt version. I'm sure most here are no stranger to this one.

Now...before you measure my neck for the noose... I'm not saying they smell exactly the same. Close enough for my nose though that I'm never going to do this:

"Boy... I just can't decide whether I should wear the Prada or the Opium today..."

"Man ... This is a tough one!" ect...

Similar DNA... Same "vibe"... Not a twin.

Now, is having both redundant? You'll have to decide that.
To me... Yes...and it's YSL NQA (you'll figure it out).

To my nose-the scent is 85%-90% similar Maybe more or less, depending on what color shoe laces I'm wearing. Kidding.

It's not as cheap (opium) as you must chose a discontinued frag over one that's quite easily found. Even on line @ discounted prices.

On the other hand, I've paid $29.90 for a one oz bottle of Opium that was stunning!

Remember, I like this Prada.
I own it don't I?
I'm just not convinced that I would ever wear it because it's too similar to the YSL (yes the Prada was a blind buy.. Had I known...)

But if your looking for this "type" fragrance BUT, with "twin-turbo" performance, and you DON'T have the Prada...YSL Opium EDT is at least a must try.

If you don't have either...Get a sample of both. Try them... See for yourself.

So you have the Prada (meaning you are ok with a "naturally aspirated" frag)
and you could care less about YSL's Opium Pour Homme...may I suggest taking an atomizer with you, if you are looking for 6-8/9 hours of longevity.
Why? (see above).
Also with the Prada you MAY save a few bucks but it's weaker so...... You got it.

Just remember- if you sampled them both and you chose the YSL, you'll need an oil change every 3,000 mi. (It's this special seal in the turbo that....... Never mind. ;)


Oh yeah...

NQA= no questions asked



I'm starting to think I've burned out a few mucosal cells.
As of my last attempt at this fragrance... I'm surprised at how much I missed:
The spices ... Cinnamon mostly... Juniper and a whiff or two of some pleasing vanilla. It's starting tom grow on me.

Moving to a neutral but if this nose of mine gets with the program again...

Well who knows.... 6/10
