Best Prada Colognes for Men
Here are our top men’s fragrance picks:
Prada l’Homme exudes freshness and cleanliness in its initial opening. You’ll find white floral accords combined with some of the freshest-smelling spices around. They are artfully blended to give you that clean, soapy-like smell that is left after you’ve had a long luxurious shower.
It is that “ahh” smell, both relaxing and invigorating in a restful way.
You’ll then experience fresh, powdery notes of iris which add even more layers of overall freshness to this fragrance. A further dry down takes you to warm though subtle woody notes. In the end, you’re left with a gorgeous, clean, and fresh fragrance. It’s fresh, fresh, fresh all the way.
Top notes of Prada l’Homme are neroli, cardamom, black pepper, and carrot seeds; middle notes are geranium, iris, mate, and violet; base notes are sandalwood, amber, cedar, and patchouli.
Wear this one during the warmer months, on casual occasions, and even for formal events. The fresh, soapy smell will also work well in the office, making you smell clean, professional, and put together. Your colleagues will love it.
Prada l’Homme Intense
OK, so you want to go stronger? Prada l’Homme Intense is stronger and warmer than the original version.
It opens with a shot of masculine powderiness from notes of iris and amber, which will remind you of the Prada L’Homme vibe. This time, however, the amber takes more of a leading role, making the fragrance warmer and deeper.
Cue stage right; enter woody and leathery notes. These give it a robust feeling that works well in conjunction with the powderiness at the beginning. It is a warm, winning scent, still in the spirit of the original Prada l’Homme, but taking things one step further.
Top note is iris; middle notes are amber and patchouli; base notes are sandalwood, tonka bean, and leather.
This an amazing fragrance to wear during the colder months, as its warmer vibe is better suited to cold temperatures. Casual or formal, you can’t go much wrong.
Prada Luna Rossa Carbon
If you are a fan of Christian Dior Sauvage, you may like this one too. It has a fresh, sharpish spicy opening, followed later by delicious doses of ambroxan and patchouli.
In case you are concerned that this is too young for you, the middle, metallic notes give it a mature, fresh yet aromatic feeling that will appeal to the serious side of your masculinity.
Top notes are pepper and bergamot; middle notes are coal, metallic notes, aquatic notes, soil, and lavender; base notes are ambroxan and patchouli.
You can wear this at any time of the year. It’s that versatile and likable. Wear it casually or in an office setting — it’s perfect for both. You’ll get compliments, for sure.
Prada Luna Rossa Black
Prada Luna Rossa Black turns up the volume on musk. Spray it on and the first thing you’ll notice is sweet, spicy patchouli with undertones of powder. Afterward, the musk kicks in, blending well with its powdery opening.
The dry-down will give you traces of amber and coumarin.
This is a warm, sweet, rich fragrance. Top note is bergamot; middle notes are patchouli and angelica; base notes are musk, amber, and coumarin.
This is a super, cold-weather fragrance, best suited for the fall and winter. Great for nights out, clubbing, or socializing at the bar.
Prada Amber Pour Homme
Prada Amber Pour Homme is warm and clean with a citrusy and floral opening. Cardamom and geranium then turn up the coolness factor a notch or two. When it begins to dry down, you’ll get the warmth of amber and other complementary notes.
It’s truly a gorgeous fragrance, with warmth and yet soapy clean freshness.
Top notes are cardamom, bergamot, neroli, and mandarin; middle notes are amber, myrrh, geranium, vetiver, musk, and orange blossom; base notes are patchouli, tonka bean, sandalwood, saffron, vanilla, leather, and labdanum.
When to wear this one? Actually, it works all year long, though it is perhaps slightly better suited to the cooler seasons. There isn’t an occasion where this fragrance won’t work, so dab it on for casual everyday wear and also in a formal setting.
Prada Luna Rossa Sport
This one is likable, versatile, safe, and easy to wear. Breathe in the opening notes of lavender and ginger, then enjoy the sweetness of vanilla and tonka bean. The sweeter notes give a certain creaminess and smoothness that in no way detract from the opening freshness.
True to its name, this fragrance is sporty, summery, light, and uncomplicated.
Top notes are juniper berries and ginger; middle note is lavender; base notes are vanilla and tonka bean.
This is a warm weather fragrance for sure, so wear it after a workout at the gym, at the pool, at the beach, on a boat, or while playing sports. It won’t offend anyone. It is likable, easy, and versatile.
Prada has the perfect scent for every occasion. Their fragrances are beautifully made, bold, unique and striking, like their fashions.
If you are considering high-quality, luxurious colognes at reasonable prices, the Prada line has some of the best available.
They represent an affordable entry fee into the A-lister lifestyle. Whilst they vary in intensity and aroma, there’ll be something here you’ll fall in love with.
Prada colognes range from traditional to more exotic scents, but each one makes you feel as if you are walking the red carpet.
