Glorious opening that soon disappears. Quite linear and flat. Very expensive. Low sillage/longevity.
Not bad, but unexciting, expensive, and absolutely no longevity/sillage
A great winter perfume, since it's warm and spicy.
What you see is what you get.
Elegance by Penhaligon's.
Its smell masculine, high culture, well read person.
My boyfriend has this EDT, so I can write a bit on how this projects on others.
All and all, this is a fragrance that starts as green/fresh with a great opening, and it turns into sweet/synthetic. It leaves a very nice, soft, and pleasant skinscent. Longevity is quite good, and sillage is quite soft, which is a good thing for these type of fragrances.
Latest addition to "Les Infusions de Prada" to complete and round the circle of an absolute coherent concept. A small semi-niche collection of seven perfumes that had their beginning with the highly acclaimed Iris (possibly one of the cleanest perfumes created in the last decade).
The nice thing about "Les Infusions" is that they all smell the same and different at the same time.
This one smells like yellow flowers floating in cotton.
Definitely a unisex fragrance for the soft and bold.
Or Prada Luna Rossa Cologne? The best flanker so far to the original Prada Luna Rossa. How to describe it... Prada Luna Rossa was a great scent, very pleasant and well balanced, still very crispy.
Prada Luna Rossa Eau Sport is extremely similar to the first Luna Rossa, but more airy or powdery and less crispy. It somehow feels like a fresh fragrance from the 90s like acqua di gio, or CK one, but with the smoothness and sophistication that you find in some fresh fragrances made nowadays. One can see the nose of Daniela Andrier behind, and resemble aspects from the "Les infusions"
A very nice alternative between Dior Homme and those hypersexual gourmand fragrances.
I think this is Infusion d'Homme re-branded with a new name.
Edit: Yes it is. I've been doing a bit of research on the interwebs and this is the original Infusion d'Homme, but with a very sligh difference in the concentration. About only a 5% only people are saying since this is an EDP and the original is an EDT. And what I'm also reading around is that the new formula is actually better.
Conclusion: This is Infusion d'Homme EDP
I never buy designer perfumes but I'm seriously considering getting this one.
Yes, it's very similiar to Dior Homme, but the drydown is definetely better. Close to the end, almost all the notes dissapear to leave only a very clean and pure scent of vanilla. Almost organic vanilla, High quality vanilla. It's magic when this happens. I'm getting a bottle.
It seems to me that all these Infusion d'xxx are slightly worst than the original. Maybe because there's no room for surprises if you know the original, maybe because the process during the creation was not as inspiring anymore...
However, this fragrance is a nice flanker and it keeps the idea of softness in the Infusions collection. The vetiver is beautiful and subtle. Absolutely wearable. But I would skip this one and get the original instead.
EDIT: Forget all I said, this just keeps growing and growing on me

This is one of the best designer fragrances released in the last 10 years.
Too Strong. Skip this one and get the original instead.
I get on this one a very powdery Iris. I used to own a bottle and I finished it in no time. So easy to wear.
Very in the line of Thierry Mugler cologne but less conceptual and more elaborated and complex.
However, the original Infusion d'Iris is slightly better and more rounded.
Clean and pleasant to the nose from the first splash. And quite modern and unique I would say too. Can't really compare it to any other fragrances.
And what I read in the reviews is true. It smells like luxurious shower gel.
Lavender/citrus powdery fragrance very clean and pleasant. The smell that I can recall the most from this is baby cologne. For the younger crowd.

GILR is the cheapest CDG perfume out in the market right now. It has dropped down is price tag a 75%, and one can find online retailers in Europe selling the juice for around 28 Euros only (Originally 120 Euros)
Unisex on the feminine side, it's a well blended fragrance that smells like an experienced power bottom all fresh and groomed, on his way to meet his Saturday hookup. Loves it.
As Sawira is as complex as the length of the reviews you may see if you scroll down. A perfectly blended woody, animalic, floral fragrance with a strong composition and low sillage.
The low sillage, at least for me, works in it's advantage, and that's what makes the modern outtake of it. Otherwise this EDT would be unbearable. It's both strong and quiet and that's the beauty of this fragrance.
The very first high note is Absinthe, and that, combined with the woods, gives a very alcoholic pleasant first impression. As if one would smell an oaky whiskey. Quite elegant and mature.
The packaging and the bottle look exactly as the way this juice smells. Big thumbs up.
I used and entire bottle of this I got as present long long time ago but never really enjoyed it fully :S
I used an entire bottle of this I got as present, but I never really liked it :S
Vanilla Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough by Ben & Jerry's. For the younger crowd only.
Simple inoffensive classic cologne.
Even though this is sold as a shared unisex fragrance you should know it is more on the feminine side.
I gave it as present to my sister and she oved it from day one. Absolutely wearable and classy. That's all I can say.
Beautifully blended soft rose and moss. This perfume would go splendidly well on a dashed-white-blonde girl.
Complex and well elaborated fragrance, pleasant to the nose, but still, very sweet and artificial. It is very soothing in the beginning and leaves the dry down to something slithly uncomfortable.
To me this smeels like "My Little Pony" perfumed toy. And I don't really care about the relation price-quality that many reviewers are raving about.
A fragrance should smell overall, pleasant, and this one for me is just revolting, and takes the oxygen from the air.
This was a blind bought based off reviews, and I regret it. Very disgusting.
3 out of 10
I find this fragrance very comforting, soft and appealing. A bit in the style of Prada Infusion d'Homme but less smoky and more fresh.
And now listen carefully my reader, the best of this fragrance is actually the grooming range. All products very high quality and top notch.
I own the hair pomade, the cleansing mask and the face wash.
A clear thumbs up to the Bayolea line. If this would have been released by a mainstream brand, I'm sure it would have reached enormous success such as CK one, Acqua di Giò pour Homme or L'Eau d'Issey pour Homme.
Clean and soothing. Absolutely wearable. Fresh, blue-greenish and crispy. I see it sitting very well in a blonde clean-cut guy.
The scent is not groundbreaking in itself and it might remind you to other perfumes, but it has an edge, something bitter, odd and moisty like mud or wet grass or swamp (but in a good way) that makes it a slightly special, not unique.
Otherwise, very casual perfume, easy to wear, young, office friendly, nice, cute, softy, save, gentle and summery.

One of the best and more underrated perfumes from Penhaligon's. Eucalyptus (whitegreenish) and Incense (darkbrownish) perfectly blended. Magic. I'm addicted.
I haven't tried anything like this in a long time, and it's hard to compare with any other perfumes. Perfect for a cold morning, and one of those perfumes that you enjoy on your own.
I own a bottle and I've also had a shower gel. Waiting for the body oil.
