    Default prada l'homme

    I tried it again today after more than a year.
    I've always liked the smell but contrary to what many say about me it never lasted very long, 2 hours if that's okay.
    today after more than a year I wanted to try it again and at first I was a little shocked ... I didn't remember it had a metallic-acidulous opening.
    now my doubt is: did you also remember such an opening or did my flanker go bad despite having kept it in the dark and not at high temperatures? at this point to buy back the same bottle ... do I buy the absolu version that I don't have?

    thank you.

    I bought Prada L'Homme when it was released and there wasn't any hype around it.
    To me it smelled fantastic and I immediately bought a backup bottle (which I still have).
    It lasts over 10 hours easily and I never had some sort of metallic acidic notes - but the L'Eau version probably has that very slightly, it's certainly a little bit sharper than the original.

    Have you sprayed it several times before testing it?
    Maybe some juice which was in the riser pipe (I don't know how you call that properly in English) went bad?

    Try spraying it a couple of times and then test it on skin again.

    Personally never cared for this fragrance. Hope you find the version that will work for you.

    I like iris so this one works for me. Does get a tiny bit white musky boring in the base, but that's a small complaint.
    oh look, I have a signature

    Always liked this one, mainly because the iris is there, but noticeably tamer than in the Diors. Consequently, to me, it's just a little more versatile.

    I've never had the strange opening or longevity problems you describe.
