Pretty, Pretty: Prada Infusion d'Iris
Neiman Marcus is having their beauty event, where I stock up on Kiehls and come away with a (slightly tacky IMHO) tote and a bunch of samples. The 2007 release from Prada was the scent sample. I don't know what I was expecting since the Prada line of fashion I find rather severe and the nylon luggage I find laughably overpriced. Vuitton canvas is crazy expensive too, but it has some history.
The scent however is a winner: sweet, clean, powdery in the opening and warm woods in the drydown. I can't say that it's groundbreaking, or even that I would wear it myself since it's a little frilly on me but I can certainly see it as a lovely scent for late summer/ early fall when it's hot or an olfactory version of a full spectrum light-box for the winter blahs. A few splashes of this couldn't help but lift the spirits...
In various sizes from $65 for 1.6oz up to $360 for a whopping 25oz at Neiman Marcus, et al.
