    They're both worthy of a full bottle in my opinion.
    But if I *had* to choose just one, I'd pick Infusion d'Iris.

    Not to make things difficult, but I own both and would chose Prada Amber.... I think it's a pretty darn unique entity on the market as nothing smells quite like it...l I love the way soapy notes are intertwined with the resinous notes, and the whole thing is both clean and masculine. D'Homme is nice but it isn't that strong and the longevity is average. Plus, you can find it on discount pretty easily....

    I must say that I am not a fan of either of these 2.....But If I had to pick 1.....it would be Infusion.

    To be honest, I struggle to tell the two of them apart. They seem VERY similar to me, such that my overall feeling is of annoyance at Prada for wasting my time with two similar fragrances, leading me to conclude that neither are bottle-worthy.

    Rant over, they are both quite pleasant. If I had to choose, I'd probably go for Infusion, as it has a nicer bottle, is newer, and has a little more vetiver in the base.

    I liked infusion but Prada Amber is one of my favorite scents, the scent just gets better and better on me as it dries down and after an hour or so it's this very warm, soapy and slightly spicy amber. This one has gotten me more compliments than any of my other frags.

    The Amber is heavier and more masculine, the D'Homme powdery and more sheer. Take your pick.

    Infusion is the better smelling soap from Prada. I'm curious as to when Prada will stop making soaps and introduce a fragrance 8P. Seriously, Infusion is growing on me big time. Its more than soap it has a beautiful neroli burst and nice masculine take on a floral. Amber is nothing special to my nose though and bores me.

    Cheers,

    Only tried Prada Amber. At first I liked it, then it started to feel like a choking soapy smell. I'll have to sample it one more time before I give up on it entirely.

    I personally like Amber better, but I will say this

    Infusion is cleaner, and more masculine.

    Amber evolves more and goes from a very sweet opening to a nice suede/saffron/hint of vetiver base

    Amber has the better late stage drydown

    They're both soapy

    Infusion is more casual, and more versatile, while Amber is richer but can still be casually if applied sparingly

    Amber has better longevity and projection

    I'm just guessing here, but I think women will generally like Amber better on a man, since many women like sweeter and more feminine scents on men.

    Amber is the better fragrance by a country mile.

    Infusion D'Homme is a very linear and sickly fragrance.
