My favourite everyday scent
I've worn this perfume for years now and I love to be able to call it my signature scent. It's light, clean, and lasts all day (though I do like to do spritz from my atomizer after work if I'm about to go out, just for good measure!). It's more expensive than the average fragrance, but it's a great, everyday scent that never "perfume-y" or overly girly.
Such a Great smell but, does not last long
I absolutely love this perfume but, the down side is that it does not last. I've had perfumes where they last all day but, with this one even if I shower in it, even those around me can not smell it. It's scent is very lovely, the best scent I've smelled but, I wish it would stick!! =/
My Everyday Scent
I wasn't a huge fan of this when I first used it. It smelled like citrus, and it wasn't really that great.
It took me a while to realize that it takes a bit of time for this fragrance to settle. After some time, it has a beautiful light powdery smell. It's almost like baby powder. I wasn't sure how I felt about spending $74 to smell like baby powder, but it's definitely one of my favorite scents. It stays on, and it has a soft floral smell, which I love.
Light and floral. Fun.
New EDT version is even lighter than the orginal eau de parfum
Lighter than the original Eau de Parfum, this new Eau de Toilette (just released last month) has a light, powdery finish and attempts to offer an olfactory 'memory' of the iris flower. For those who aren't familiar with iris, it has no discernible scent, so this is the perfumer's attempt at creating the fleeting 'scent,' of what it could have been, if the flower had a real smell.
Compared to the EDP, this one has more floral notes. It's very clean and fresh, and it contains Iris, Neroli, Lily of the Valley (Muguet), Violet, Heliotrope, Cedar and Galbanium. Depending on your skin chemistry, you might not like it as it doesn't have the same citrus notes as the previous release. It won't last as long either. But, I also think some guys can manage to carry this off, despite the floral-heavy base. It can smell nice on the right guy.
The vintage looking bottle reminds me of an absinthe cocktail. The price point is also lower than the EDP ($65 for 1.7 oz.) so it's not too big of a splurge. If you're a Prada fan, I say give it a whirl.
