    Default Prada Infusion d'Homme

    Why doesn't anyone talk about this? Being absolutely in love with Infusion d'Iris, I can't wait to try this one!

    "Prada, meanwhile, is working on the masculine counterpart to 2007's Infusion d'Iris For Women. Their new fragrance for men, Infusion d'Homme, will debut in September.

    Like Infusion d'Iris, Infusion d'Homme was developed by perfumer Daniela Andrier and "works closely with the body to create a subtle yet distinctive scent". The notes include Tunisian neroli, iris pallida, vetiver, cedarwood, incense and benzoin.

    Prada Infusion d'Homme will be available in 50, 100, 200, 500 and 765 ml Eau de Toilette and in matching grooming products."

    Check out my thread from a month back: http://community.basenotes.net/showthread.php?t=210580


    I already tested this one. It's not what we'd hoped for frankly. It's nice in a neroli kinda way. If you've sampled Bond No.9's Eau de New York, you'll get a good idea what it smells like but with a smidgeon of Iris thrown in.

    To get the fragrance I hoped they'd create, spray on Prada Amber pour Homme and then mist Hiris by Hermes over the top and it'll be heaven.

    When someone says "neroli", I can't stop thinking about TF's Neroli Portofino! I absolutely adore it. Pure cleanness for me. It reminds me of the smell of the entrance of the old buildings in Istanbul just washed with what we call "Arabian Soap". Would never imagine wanting to smell like that

    Is Infusion d'Homme anything like Neroli Portofino?

    I tested this one today, and even though my wife loves it, I decided against it. Its opening is very fresh and there is a lot of citrus, and something else that makes the scent quite unusual, but pleasantly so. after the top notes faded though, it became very soapy (good) and powdery (not so good).

    I'm willing to give it another go or two before I pass complete judgement on it though. I was pleasantly surprised by the longevity of the top notes.

    Most iris- heavy fragrances are going to be powdery to some extent. In general Infusion has been one of the better 08 male designer releases.

    I can smell the powder in Infusion d'Iris, but not so much in Infusion d'Homme. Same juice, only that the mens version goes progresses in reverse. You smell mostly neroli at the end more so than the beginning.

    I tested it today for the first time. My initial impression is that I prefer Infusion d'Iris. Infusion d'Homme has a strong citrus in the top notes, and while it is pleasant, it doesn't seem congruent with the rest of the fragrance development. Ultimately, though, they are both well made, and any choice will probably will just come down to taste.

    I purchased Infusion d'Iris in Charlotte, NC yesterday. Pretty much an impulse purchase (I had 30 minutes to make it to the airport) and in retrospect, I *almost* wish I'd bought Infusion d'Homme. Almost, not because it's better than IdI, but because I think I would wear it more often since it less powdery and more masculine. As Asha said, they're both good. So why did Luca Turin give IdI only two stars? Seemed a bit stingy to me.

    While I like IdI and IdH, the latter I find more casually wearable, I still think they both pale in comparison to their immediate ancestor, the wonderful Prada Amdber PH.

    I'm curious: for those who prefer either over Prada Amber, why is that?

    What can't you stand about Amber PH? The decidedly feminine opening? I find they all dry down to a somewhat similar base, but I think amber's base is by far the richest and most satisfying, while still remaining relatively light. It's one of the most satisfying bases I've come across.

    Let's not get into a Turin debate here.

    I'm wearing Prada Infusion d'Homme today and so far I don't like it. It's not as powdery as other iris heavy frags I've tried, namely Dior Homme. It remnds me of the saturated soapy aura of Prada Amber pour Homme mixed with iris. It just feels very discordant.

    The opening is pretty good and right now I'm only at the heart. Waiting for the drydown.....

    I tested it after the last string of posts on it so I didn't get to weigh in. I like it... The reason why is because it plays with texture in a really interesting way. For some reason all iris fragrances have this texture in my "nose" or of powder but that has had a little water dropped on top so as to cause a smooth, thick whiteness. This fragrance also to me, smells more like certain fine soaps than anything I can remember smelling ever: the kind of soap people keep wrapped up and never use and set them on top of the toilet I respect it a lot because it doesn't remind me of anything else besides it's slightly older sister Infusion d'Iris. I enjoyed both but if I were to buy one this would be it. Though the frankincense is among the base notes, I smelled it right there at the beginning. As a side note, I never know whether packaging affects my interpretation of a fragrance or if some genius of packaging out there knows how to tap in the the general populace's mental idea of what the color of scent is, but when I smell Infusion d'Homme I see the off-white cap color exactly.

    Am I missing something here? the iris in this is barely perceptible, and the "clean soapy" note nearly overpowers the entire composition. Imagine Gendarme overdosed on the laundry detergent accord with a dash of iris thrown in to conform to current trends..

    It does smell like soap though.

    A large portion of that clean soapy note is a thick and faintly woody iris note. It's not the same iris that's in GIT, for instance, which is of the sweeter, sugary variety. I get predominant iris notes from the opening through the heart on this one. I think a musk called Nirvanolide may be contributing to the soapy effect too, as it was definitely in the listed notes of Prada Amber, and there is a unique note in all three of these offerings from Prada. As far as I know, Nirvanolide is a newer musk that hasn't gotten much play commercially yet.

    Lets compare iris notes then. We have the powdery type as in Iris Poudre, Dior Homme, and to a lesser extent, Bois d'Iris. Then theres the more raw, greener variety found in No. 19, Iris Silver Mist, and a few others. What kind of iris is at play in Infusion d'homme? As you said, faintly woody is right - the iris is not very evident to my nose in 'homme.

    Default Re: Prada Infusion d'Homme

    Well, I think it's a hybrid mix of notes - likely some synthetic iris notes (not sure how those smell) along with some C02 extract, which is woodier and has a sort of creamy texture to it. Bonus for the perfume house: the C02 extract is cheap. Further, I think it is interminably intertwined with the neroli note in the opening, and I have a feeling some people are perhaps slightly anosmic to the iris chemicals used, or perhaps overly sensitive to the neroli (or vice versa), and hence why some describe it as neroli heavy, and others iris heavy. Neroli alone is actually a lot woodier than some people realize - lower quality neroli being even woodier and closer to petitgrain - and I think the neroli/iris combo, along with the iris used, keeps it behaving as it does.

    I think it's a fairly similar accord to the iris/petitgrain opening in Les Nez's Unicorn Spell - although in that one the petitgrain IS dominant at first and combined with the iris and moreso the opening green blast of some natural violet, gives the 'green been effect.' After that fades though, the texture of the iris is similar to Infusion D'Iris, although less soapy.

    But pure neroli smells like the opening of Fleur Du Male (a woody neroli), or Neroli Sauvage (sort of). There's definitely a large dose of iris at play in Infusion, although it's not an iris note that most people have seen before because, as you've said, most of the iris notes in other frags are powdery, sweet or rawer than this (another raw/rooty iris note can be found promininelty in Iris Bleu Gris).

    Well, as a perfumer, I can't but help myself in trying to break down a fragrance into its component parts and seeing what makes it tick. And, subjectively, I find Infusion d'Homme to be nice but not nearly as rich or deep as Prada Amber, and I've been trying to pinpoint what differences there are that make the latter so much more enjoyable than the former for me.

    .
    Yes I think its a newer synthetic iris molecule that is utilized here. The woodiness could also be due to cedar and I think galbanum is also in the formula for a light green effect.

    Comparing Infusion d'homme to the holocast? ok maybe a tad hyperbolic, but I was trying to make a point. The praise this vile creation gets is a testament to the power of branding over sense (or scents as the case may be). This fragrance is not unlike those hideously branded Louis Vuiitton bags that in a few years we'll look upon with the same embarassment we now have over Tommy Hilfiger hoddies, Gucci Bling sunglasses or Juicy Couture sweatpants. *Sigh* another example of people shopping for brands rather than asking the question "does this stuff smell good?"

    In terms of the 'power of branding', what branding/marketing has there been for ID'H??
    I stumbled upon this little gem by chance, but I haven't ever seen a single advert on TV, magazine or even online to tempt me to buy this one.
    In fact, every time I visit a fragrance store, ID'H is more often than not out of view, either on the bottom shelf, or hiding in a corner somewhere, unlike PAPH which is plastered everywhere I look and strategically placed at eye level each time I spot it.

    In terms of the bottle/packaging branding, it's almost non-existent. A plain box, with an even plainer, simplistic bottle, nothing eye catching at all (my mind drifts to 1 million with gold brick outlandish bottle and mind trance ad campaign).

    As blacklibran1 said, let's just enjoy this for what it is - a masterpiece and quite possibly the ultimate office/work scent...

    This thread is HILARIOUS based on blacklibran and Marquis's posts! Literal laugh out loud x 2.
