    Default Prada Luna Rossa, new male perfume by Prada

    Resourced from Now Smell This:
    http://www.nstperfume.com/2012/05/23...new-fragrance/

    When you click the "moodiereport" link in this post you can see the bottle design. It's interesting, but really much different from whan beautiful bottles Prada served us so far

    Hmmm... the notes don't interest me much. I think I should explore some of Prada's older offerings.

    Ugly bottle and uninspiring notes (as uninspiring as most Prada offerings, anyway).

    As the article was saying, Luna rossa (red moon) is the name of Prada's boat (actually, more her husband's, I believe) in the Americas cup. So this is clearly an entry into the sports frag territory for boys. The logo in fact refers to the Prada sport line rather than the mail fashion line.

    To their (Andrier?) credit, it appears to avoid marine and ozonic and go for a light citrusy top with a smooth ambery drydown, uninspiring but vastly better than the miasmas of decomposing sea life. But as usual, who knows, one will have to smell it first.

    Was my first thought! Looks even cheaper when you actually see it on the shelf.

    I tried this today in the Debenhams store in Dublin's Henry Street. It reminds me a lot of Nautica Voyage and L'Eau par Kenzo pour Homme. It has that fresh salty seabreeze smell. I can definitely get the lavender and some sage too. It's quite light and quickly turns to a skin scent, but it seems to have decent lasting power. Very little sillage.

    Not bad at all, but not not hugely exciting either.

    So what's the deal with this one? I thought release date in USA was September 2012...I can't find this anywhere. There's a mention on Fragrantica that the rls date is now March of 2013...

    It literally just arrived into stores here yesterday, so it might be coming out in the US around now also?

    Sounds good to me...you had me at spearmint and clary sage.

    I sampled this , was NOT impressed, take any generic aquatic fragrance add some lavender and sage notes and voila you got luna rossa. Sillage is poor, longevity is decent. 4/10

    Today I tried it. I don't find it that bad, actually my first impression is quite good. Anyhow, I've found an interesting discussion:

    That's a winner of 2012 season to me. A rare example of sporty fragrance that possesses a high quality of ingridients. What I feel is lavender, mint and a typical Prada soapy accord. The fragrance smells quite balsamic at the same time, it reminds me of Cerruti Si a lot.
    Nice projection, high longevity.

    I absolutely agree. It has a nice bitter orange opening followed my lavender and mint. It's really clean typically for Prada perfume for men. It's nice and different take on fashion house taking a step into sporty. Luna Rossa definitely isn't another copy of ozonic, aquatic, marine sporty scents that have been released this year before the Olympics.

    I think the packaging and bottle look good.
    Spearmint & Bitter Orange have me interested. If the underlying aquatic freshness has a very distinctive refinement to it instead of just covering all the plasticy-ness of calone with dry or dusty accords....I'll be pleased. Far too many new aquatics try to hide their wetness behind generic, bland, parched tones. Is there any fruity of floral or citric aspect on the drydown ? Can't wait to test this.

    When does it come to the USA ?

    It was sitting right next to PA Intense -- different worlds
