Iris and amber united at the heart of L’Homme Prada

Amber is Miuccia Prada’s favorite ingredient and can be found in many of the brand’s fragrances. As for iris, it is the noblest ingredient and also one of the most expensive in niche perfumery.
“L’Homme Prada” opens with the luminosity of neroli, immediately overtaken by notes of pepper which confirm the irresistible character of “L’Homme Prada”. Iris and amber are therefore gathered within luminous heart notes which also combine violet and geranium, two ingredients that are generally found in feminine perfumes .
Between cedar and patchouli, the base of “L’Homme Prada” will be woody and sensual. As for the bottle, the woman and the man have the same look, only the color changes. The bottle, although in heavy and imposing glass, is intended to be very refined. Its transparency lets glimpse the gray of its nectar, thus echoing the metallic gray of the cabochon. A luxurious bottle, which reflects a resolutely elegant man.
