Holiday Gift for the Luxury-Loving Woman
I love perfume, but I am very picky about the scents I wear. I don’t like fragrances that are too heavily floral, and while I used to adore fresh citrus scents, I find them to be somewhat too juvenile to suit me now. I have a few scented products that I like to wear in the summer and one or two that are appropriate for the holiday season. But for the longest time, I have yearned for a signature scent that I can wear every day and that fits my personality like a glove.
The fresh, light scent of Prada Infusion d’Iris Eau de Toilette seemed like it might just fit the bill, and I was lucky enough to be given the chance to test it out for myself when Prada launched this lighter and more floral version of the original Infusion d’Iris this fall.
The Eau de Toilette comes in a gorgeous frosted glass bottle that exemplifies the classic elegance that Prada is known for. The pale green eau de toilette shows through the bottle beautifully, and the bright white stopper and distinctive Prada crest on the front of the bottle contrast wonderfully with the soft green. The overall effect is sleek and fresh, and I couldn’t wait to see if the scent was as beautiful as the bottle.
I sprayed the eau de toilette on my wrists and neck the next morning before I left the house, and immediately noticed how deliciously fresh and clean the fragrance was. The combination of Iris, Neroli, Lily of the Valley, Violet, Heliotrope and Cedar blends together beautifully to create a light floral scent that is reminiscent of a bright spring morning. After putting on the scent, I instantly felt more sophisticated and energized, and I headed out the door with a little extra spring in my step.
When one of my friends told me how much she loved my perfume and asked me what I was wearing, I knew that I had found my signature scent. From that day on, I have made sure that I never leave the house without first spritzing on this light yet lavish scent that is both clean enough for every day wear, yet sophisticated enough for the fanciest black-tie event. I love the way that the florals blend together so beautifully to create the distinctively feminine blend and the way that the Neroli and Galbanum balance the aroma with their freshness.
I did find that the scent faded away before the end of the day, but it easily lasted until the middle of the afternoon, which is usually the latest I am out and about anyways. For the times when I wanted to make sure that the fragrance had the best lasting power possible, I just made sure that I moisturized my skin well before putting on my perfume. The extra moisture increased the lasting power nicely so that I could still detect a hint of fragrance even into the late evening.
