    Default Suggestion for something similar to Prada Infusion d'Homme

    Hi,

    I have been wearing this from a sample this past week, and there are things I really like about it ... but on me, its most prominent scent is 'powdery' (sorry, new to high end frags and not good at correctly naming the scents I smell). What I do detect that I like is orange-vanilla-incense ??

    Anyway, if anyone has suggestion for something similar but not so much 'powder' (is that the same as the 'soapy' used to describe this scent so often?)

    Thanks!

    First, welcome to Basenotes.

    I actually wanted to recommend you the women's marketed version: Infusion d'Iris, but that one is more powdery than d'Homme. I like Infusion d'Iris better on myself.

    Alternatives without iris, but with the same clean vibe are Zegna Z and Bulgari pour Homme.

    Wanted: L' Artisan Timbuktu or Fragonard Concerto

    The powdery aspect is iris, the sweet aspect is neroli. There's many fragrances with neroli - Chanel Allure Homme Sport, for example, but that's going to highlight the citrus aspect more. Something with light orange that isn't powdery is Hermes Eau de Merveilles (it's totally unisex, even though you'll find it with the feminine marketed fragrances). You may even want to try Prada Infusion d'Iris, which is the same as Infusion d'Homme but stronger... it's been a while since I tried it but I don't think it's as powdery.

    I second the suggestion to at least try Infusion d'Iris in spite of it's being marketed as a woman's scent. However, I'm not sure I would call IdI stronger than IdH. Smoother, yes. And not nearly as soapy as IdH.

    Actually, with Prada IdI, funnily enough I cannot smell the powdery iris in it at all; at least not the same way I can easily detect the iris in Dior Homme. The iris is not why I like the Prada IdI though - I actually now think I like it because of its woody basenotes aspects rather than its iris.

    Prada Infusion d'homme just smelled like a toned down version of the original to me

    How about Gendarme? Nice light scent, with a definite soapy, clean feeling.
