La Femme et L'Homme Prada
At the epicenter of the House, La Femme Prada and L’Homme Prada represent a fluid relationship between polar definitions. The family of fragrances draw on both time-honored ingredients and surprising compositions yielding fragrances that defy expectations. Innocence is undercut with carnality, the lush is crossed with the refined. The collection explores a range of masculinities and femininities: idiosyncratic, individual, defiant, and highly personal. As a whole they form an olfactory investigation into the very nature of gender: a dynamic range of expressions that reject the clichés of fixed categories.
With the reveal of La Femme Prada Absolu and L’ Homme Prada Absolu, Prada Parfums reaches its most opulent expression; La Femme Prada Absolu and L’ Homme Prada Absolu play with olfactory expectations of femininity and masculinity, using seemingly contradictory ingredients to provoke emotional sensations.
La Femme Prada Absolu and L’ Homme Prada Absolu: an intimate, elusive olfactory exploration of difference, correlation and emotion that evoke the indefinable essence of the Prada woman and the Prada man.
A frangipani flower, fresh and green, is enriched by Mandarin essence and smoothed by Ylang Ylang notes.
An airy mix that is enhanced by Tuberose. The essence of Mandarin is added to make the note fresher.
Amber and Iris mingle with red Ginger and Neroli. Fresh and green notes on a sandalwood background create an addictive and sensual tension. The floral note is modified and prolonged to enhance the sensation of freshness. Cedar notes and powdered notes are tempered through the addition of Sandalwood.
As an olfactory chimera, La Femme Prada is an invitation to emotion. Straying from fragrance’s more familiar routes, a sultry journey is evoked by its Frangipani wake. This solar note, a hyper-sensual floral, evokes the dewy humidity associated with the faraway flower. The note is interwoven with Ylang-Ylang, its spice made smooth with Beeswax, Vanilla and Tuberose. A distilled Vetiver finishes the fragrance, grounding and rounding its feel.
L’Homme Prada is a fragrance of pairs, of doubles, of juxtapositions and layers. The classic codes of the male Fougère are all present in Neroli, Geranium and Patchouli. Yet the interchangeable male/female Prada signatures are present, too, in the shape of Iris and Amber, the principal elements. It is a mix that is both airy and yet purposefully, highly sensual.
La Femme Prada Intense is an Eau de Parfum with a sultry, almost oriental quality, which exudes a heady sensuality. The intensity of the fragrance is achieved by magnifying the tuberose, ylang-ylang and patchouli at the heart of its composition.
L’Homme Prada Intense expresses the multiplicity of male identity through intense amber and patchouli notes that cross paths with the floral refinement of iris, while the introduction of tonka beans brings an airy, oriental dimension to the top end.
