A touch of almond magic
Despite numerous very nice and meaningful comments now also one from me? Yes, because the fragrance is one of my favourite "always-walkers" and therefore he deserves it.

Infusion d'Amande is one of those fragrances that have been with me for quite some time. As soon as the days get a bit colder and darker, the first gingerbreads are in the supermarkets (which can happen surprisingly early in the year, depending on the supermarket...) and I generally long for more cosiness again, I pull d'Amande out of the back corner of the cupboard.

THE Smell
D'Amande wraps the wearer in a delicate almond powder (similar to the crushed almonds you can buy for baking). Heliotrope and tonka underline the marzipan note, but probably also account for a significant part of the sweetness of the fragrance. This is then somewhat muted by the added star anise. Yet d'Amande is not an overwhelmingly sweet fragrance. I wouldn't call him a pure gourmand either, as there is always a delicate "clean note" noticeable.
I can't see any fragrance that is worth mentioning, d'Amande has a largely linear effect on me with a restrained sillage and a shelf life of about 5-6 hours. All in all, I find the fragrance rather feminine.

In spring and summer I do not use it, too much the almond awakens my association with Christmas cookies and cosy, warm rooms. In autumn and winter it is therefore used all the more frequently. Infusion d'Amande is my everyday scent in these seasons, which I use almost daily in the office, which never bothers me and never becomes too much. On the contrary: a fragrance that gently envelops me and, thanks to the typical DNA of this Prada line, appears powdery and clean, but not too synthetic
And so I also hope that my environment will perceive the scent on me: a delicate touch of almond combined with a feeling of cleanliness and comfort.

Almond flake to float away
During a walk through Hamburg's city center 2 weeks ago I (surprise) found myself in a perfumery. Actually, I just wanted to have a look.
After sniffing some of the fragrances and finding them uninteresting, I was about to go outside again, when my eyes fell on the Prada "Les Infusion" collection. The colourful and at the same time rather minimalistically designed square glass flacons stood neatly lined up on a shelf and attracted my attention.
In the past I have already made acquaintance with the "Infusion d'Iris" and since I was not really impressed by it, my expectations of the other fragrances in this series were not particularly high. And then came "Infusion d'Amande".
Wow. The fine perfume mist had barely reached the paper strip and I was already sinking into a dream of fine almond biscuits and macarons. This fragrance is so delicate and soft and surrounds you like a transparent, fluffy cloud. Apart from the strong almond note, I can hear some spice somewhere in the background, probably thanks to the star anise. However, the almond remains very present throughout the fragrance.
This perfume is not for big appearances, but this does not detract from its beauty. "Infusion d'Amande" is a fragrance very close to the body and therefore does not have a room-filling presence. Sprayed onto the neck or the collar of a sweater, I notice its delicate scent from time to time during the day. The durability of the fragrance is nevertheless remarkable - applied yesterday morning, it is still noticeable (albeit slightly) on the collar of the sweater in the evening of the next day.
An extraordinary fragrance, which was allowed to move directly into my small collection and about whose acquaintance I am very happy. :)

Delicate almond powder with a cuddly effect
After the last rather dubious fragrance experience, the experiences that are absolutely necessary, I turn back to something fragrant.

I only recently got to know Prada Infusions, although I had some of them on my watch list for a long time.
But as it is always the case when you look around Parfumo, new impressions are added again and again and some fragrances take a back seat for a while.
But since the place is teeming with helpful and generous members, the most beautiful fragrances flutter into the house and the watch list can be updated and (temporarily) reduced a little bit.

Some Prada infusions have been replaced by new versions over the years and others have been added. The fragrances I have tested so far are all good to very good
So is the infusion d'Amande.
I have found that I, among some other talented perfumers, like the handwriting of Daniela Andrier very much. She created the unique Envy for Men for Gucci in the late 90s. A fragrance, which is very highly rated here and which was unfortunately taken off the market years ago.
Envy is mourned by many and I do not exclude myself from that
Some short information about Daniela Andrier:
Born in Heidelberg, she decided to work for the perfume industry after studying philosophy at the Sorbonne. After training with Chanel, among others, she worked for Givaudan and created perfumes for Bvlgari, Bottega Veneta, Maison Margiela, Guerlain and Yves Saint Laurent. She is a house perfumer at Prada, where she has created some of the most popular and well-known fragrances The first infusion fragrance for Prada was Infusion d'Iris in 2007.

Infusion d'Amande is from the year 2015.
The fragrance opens with a distinct note of bitter almonds, which reminds me of fine Amaretto, almond, slightly spicy, but without being pungent. Very quickly, notes of heliotrope and tonka bean are added, giving vanilla-like accents and a slight sweetness.
The almond recedes a little after a while, but remains present throughout. In addition, a beautiful cloudy clean note is mixed in, musk is probably responsible for this.
It's a bit of a fresh wash Apparently, Mrs Andrier has forgotten star anise, because I don't even notice it. But that is not too bad, because too much spice might have been disturbing as well.
Thus it remains a very pleasant, feathery light fragrance with a not too strong sweetness and a clear but not too dry powdery appearance.

To me Infusion d'Amande seems beautifully balanced, unobtrusive, soft, cuddly and harmonious.
The fragrance does not follow a too clear course, even if one or the other note withdraws a little or something emerges.
The unobtrusive appearance makes the fragrance wonderfully suitable for the office, as it remains quiet and rather close to the skin.
And despite the quiet overall appearance, the shelf life is more than decent, about 7 hours, although within the first hour it gets very close to the skin very quickly.
Basically I see the fragrance as suitable for the whole year and for almost all occasions, but the cold season might be the least suitable. So it may be a bit stronger My very first association (and ultimately lasting one) was actually: This is an absolute feel-good and cuddly scent. And should I ever get it, I would prefer to wear Infusion d'Amande alone in quiet moments and not share it with anyone :-)
And we all need these quiet moments
I thank Sweetsmell75 very much for the beautiful fragrance experience.

A fine fragrance that's moving in with me now.
When I ordered a bottle, a nice Parfuma sent me a sample of Infusion d Armande.
I sprayed it on and immediately felt the scent so pleasantly warm. The light, bitter note, like a fine bitter almond, which I liked so much, was replaced after some time and the scent became slightly spicy and then sweet-powdery.
The Sillage is very good and I perceive it myself very long at me.
I've now bought some other Prada fragrances for testing and can say that this Prada DNA is also available for Infusion d Armande, but I really like this DNA mark.
Infusion d Armande can be worn at any time of the year and will soon be part of my collection.
To me, it's a very noble scent that flatters every woman.

A classy soft fragrance
I tested right now and I was expecting the usual medicinal bitter Almond I find for example in Hypnotic poison. I realize that is totally different: the notes are perfectly balanced and the bitter Almond is soft and pleasant. It's a mediterranean classy fragrance with gourmand accent without being too sweet . An elegant and clean perfume I recommend.
