I am so excited to be writing reviews for IMBB again and I am here with the product review of one of the major luxury fashion brand icons….Prada !!! I think most of us would have heard the name “Prada” as this name is synonym with exotic fashion clothes and accessories. Talking about Prada, have you guys watched the movie – “Devil Wears Prada,” if not, I strongly recommend. It would give you a glimpse of the high-end fashion world. When I bought this perfume, it was more like an indulgence for myself. Owning a piece from the high-end couture brand makes me feel like a royalty every time I look at this perfume. It is definitely a splurge item and we all women deserve special treats like this, isn’t it? 😛 So here is a review of the perfume 🙂
1.7 oz bottle of perfume is priced at $84.
Introduction to Prada Infusion d’IrisEau De Parfum:
The perfume comes in square clear glass bottle with the Prada name detailing in a silver reflecting plate. The bottle shape has a very simple elegant look complete with a pale green colored cap. It is a clear bottle so you can see the amount left as you are using the perfume. The size is very travel friendly. It comes in different sizes of 1oz, 1.7 oz., 3.4 oz. and 6.75 oz. The perfume liquid is almost transparent in color with very faint golden tones, which you would almost not notice.
My Experience with Prada Infusion d’Iris Eau De Parfum:
With the first spray, I noticed a very distinct fragrance. Since I have essential oils for some of the fragrant oils mentioned for the perfume, I can relate to fragrance notes of cedar wood and neroli. The perfume name mentions it to be an infusion of Iris flowers. However, I have not smelled the lovely purple hued Iris, so I cannot vouch for it. As the day passes, I can smell the mellow notes and distinct fragrance of incense.
I find it to be a very good feminine fragrance even though it is not in floral tones. I prefer using this more as a daytime fragrance as I can wear it the whole day without any reapplication. Even at the end of the day, I can still feel a faint perfume smell lingering around which is fragrant enough but not too much either.
I prefer using this fragrance more as a fall/winter fragrance as it has a very warm kind of scent to it. Also, I like to use this fragrance in more professional locations like office or in conferences. I find this fragrance very good when you want to make a classy impression.
I will accept that initially I had found this perfume to be a little strong-smelling perfume. However with gradual use, I have started appreciating the fragrance more and more. It is a kind of fragrance, which grows on you. This perfume also comes in a gift set with a perfumed body lotion, which has the same fragrant tones of Infusion d’Iris. However, it does not specifically require any layering with body lotion. You can use this perfume on its own and it does full justice.
Pros of Prada Infusion d’Iris Eau De Parfum:
- Fragrance has a unique smell, which is classy and sophisticated.
- Travel-friendly bottle.
- Lasts for the whole day without reapplication.
- Very good day time perfume.
- Suitable to wear for professional and business scenarios.
- More suited for fall and winter seasons than summers.
- Does not require multiple layering of the same fragrance to last longer.
- Great gift item.
Cons of Prada Infusion d’Iris Eau De Parfum:
- The price feels like a dagger through the heart, sorry for being so melodramatic.
- Does not have floral tones.
- Could prove to be slightly strong smelling during initial uses.
The -1 is for its steep price, but of course, the product is from a luxury brand.
Would I Repurchase Prada Infusion d’Iris Eau De Parfum?
This perfume is going to last me a long time. I would prefer to have the gift set of lotion and perfume in my wish list.
