    Default Prada Luna Rossa

    I have not had the chance to smell this fragrance "Prada Luna Rossa" But I have heard many good things about it. The notes are...Lavender, Orange, Sage, Spearmint, Wood and Amber. In my opinion the notes seem favorable but I tend to HATE Prada's. Any have the chance to smell this fragrance yet? And isn't this fairly new?

    Anyone?

    To be honest I didn't like the top of this one. To me smelled very flowery and powdery at the same time. The dry down was nice though, reminded me of something I would wear with a suit and tie. Need to experiment more with this one but so far it's not one of my favorites.

    It's nice, but just a bit to 'clean' and 'soapy' same may I feel about Infusions. Lacks anything special!

    I absolutely love this. It's the type which makes you feel happy / confident when wearing it. I got a 100ml a few weeks after it came out.

    It's one I wear with a shirt and chinos or suit etc not really one for jeans and t-shirt (in my opinion, of-course).

    Only disappointment is the bottle, it looks fantastic but they've cost cut on the actual materials; the strips on the glass are actually plastic and not metal as I expected.

    Also disappointed over the lack of hype, I know it's not ground breaking but it is a solid scent. No reviews at all of this on YouTube aside from two girls who gives there opinions on it.

    Buy it only if you absolutely love the Prada line.

    Not bad. I personally do not like Prada fragrances. They seem to always have a dry soapy vibe which I do not like. I like a clean bright soapy vibe that I get from thierry Mugler Cologne.
    Luna Rossa still has that dry soapy vibe but it is tamed and brightened up. So while I may not like Luna Rossa enough to buy, I think it is the best of the Prada line.

    Initially I thought it was great but after a few wearings I'm not so sure.

    Have just tried this today, did not dislike it, in fact, it has a certain appealing freshness.

    I only smelled a test strip in a magazine; oddly it smelled VERY much like my lavender + vanilla candle from BBW.

    Forgot what it smelled like, but I recall not being impressed. I was neutral about it.

    I am not impressed with the whole Prada line. They should have been able to do better imo.

    I have tried it. It's just awesome. Starting from the design you know there will be something great in the bottle. And it is. Is purely elegance. Is not the type of perfume you put everyday, but for special occasions, is the best. And everyone will recognise it, or recognise the nobility.
    Further reading, i covered it in my personal blog, here: http://www.mendailyblog.com/luna-rossa-by-prada/

    I liked it quite a bit, but I am a fan of they're other fragrances as well. Perhaps it's too similar to Infusion d'Homme.
