Infusion d'Iris Absolue by Prada
What Does Infusion d'Iris Absolue Smell Like
Prada's Infusion d'Iris Absolue is a finely crafted floral aroma with a hint of sweetness. As soon as you smell it, the fresh, citrusy scent of neroli and orange blossom greets you, creating a crisp and clean impression. This isn't a sharp citrus though; it's soft and rounded, lending a lightness to the scent.
The heart of the perfume, iris, then comes into play. This is a powdery iris, with a slightly earthy undertone. It's a rich, floral note, but in a gentle and understated way. It's paired with mastic, which adds a resinous touch, subtly deepening the fragrance without overpowering the delicate iris.
As the scent settles, the base notes create a warm, comforting foundation. The benzoin and tonka bean lend a sweet, slightly spicy aroma, while the vanilla adds a creamy sweetness that's comforting and cozy. The white musk is the final touch, adding a clean, soft finish that lingers on the skin.
In all, Infusion d'Iris Absolue is a delicate balance of floral and sweet, fresh and warm. It's a beautifully blended scent that manages to be both light and comforting at the same time.
Review of Infusion d'Iris Absolue
Prada's Infusion d'Iris Absolue, launched in 2012, predominantly targets women. It offers a harmonious blend of powdery and floral notes with a dash of sweetness, making it ideal for the cooler months of fall and spring. Meanwhile, the addition of fresh, resinous, and spicy elements layer the scent with complexity, softened by a woody, oriental base. The creamy and green undertones subtly balance the more robust notes without overwhelming the fragrance.
While the perfume's longevity is commendable, the sillage is moderate, making it perfect for those seeking a more personal scent. It's a scent that fits comfortably into your daily routine, whether you're working, relaxing, or out for the evening. However, its distinctive blend of notes also makes it a suitable choice for a night out. With respect to value, the perfume's quality and complexity justify its price tag. The Infusion d'Iris Absolue by Prada is a thoughtful choice for women who appreciate a balanced, multi-layered fragrance.
