What are angels?
What do they look like?
What do they eat?
What do they drink?
What do they smell like?
Even as a child, I always found angels fascinating and kept asking myself these questions.
I remember my elementary school days when I drew my very first angel in second grade, presented it to my homeroom teacher and was proud as Oscar.
Even today as an adult I still deal with this topic.
Now in the teachings of the monotheistic Abrahamic religions, angels are said to be spirit beings in human form, created by God and sent to man as his messenger. I would not call myself a religious person, but I would like to believe this (and I do). Because believing I am somehow already...
When I smell fragrances for the first time, I often associate them with something specific. With this Prada Amber Pour Homme EdT the other day, it was those very angels; this scent is so pure, clean, fresh, sublime and noble that I immediately associated it with angels.
The house of Prada in particular is, after all, known for these kinds of clean fragrances. The Italian fashion and leather goods company based in Milan was already founded in 1913 by Mario Prada, but the big breakthrough succeeded in principle only at the end of the 70s, when the granddaughter of the founder, Miuccia Prada, took over the company. With her, the company managed to gain a proper foothold worldwide and make a name for itself.
Fragrances but one brought only from 2004 on the market, and with the simple name "Prada" first of all a fragrance for the ladies (in principle, the ladies version of this Pour Homme's, although this goes in a clearly different direction).
The Prada Amber Pour Homme EdT, on the other hand, is the first men's fragrance from the house, which appeared in 2006. And he is for me a real angel fragrance blessed with pure class...
This fragrance is so simple and plain, but at the same time so fascinatingly beautiful, that I am really excited and wonder why I did not test and discover it earlier. Especially now in spring / summer, when it is not too warm, it unfolds its wonderful aura and its famoso aroma like anything else.
The designation "Amber" apparently irritates many, when they test this fragrance, this note is not even listed in the pyramid. At first glance, understandable, but if you deal with the perfumer Daniela Andrier (a German who worked for Chanel, among others) and deal with their thoughts and visions, then you realize that the designation has been chosen deliberately. Here the note is because of the other just differently interpreted and not so warm, as one may know it otherwise, but in whole rather fresh-energy-sensual.
But apart from that: if a fragrance pleases the nose, everything else should not matter...
The fragrance does not have a great exciting progression, but this bothers me zero. In particular, this distinguishes this fabulous fragrance mMn.
He starts right ultra fresh with light hesperidischen chords, before he gets his characteristic fresh powdery soap note. This is namely his main essence and he also keeps until the base, before there - for my opinion - a delicate touch of sensual oriental notes dazugesellt.
Surprisingly, he also knows with a strong durability to convince. Often fragrances of this kind have known weaknesses in this regard, but not this one. On my skin, he keeps a good 7 h, and the sillage I take in the first 2-3 h also well perceived.
That he is somehow in the shadow of L'Homme EdT from the house of Prada, I find the fragrance is not at all just. But if self-absorbed, narcissistically inclined and equipped with a large portion of ADHD so-called. Influencer the L'Homme EdT for years over the green Klee praise and gradually all the world parrots each other, this is not a big surprise.
Be that as it may, I personally should not care. I find the Prada Amber Pour Homme EdT beautiful. A in my eyes high quality, wonderfully elegant and noble smelling, clean, powdery soap scent with a punch of the Orient, if you will.
Distinctive simplicity and individual simplicity combined in pure elegant class.
A fragrance from angels for angels...
