And again, I associate one of my absolute favorite fragrances with a travel experience. I would love to tell you that I discovered this fragrance in Paris, or even better: during a summer holiday in Morocco, because that's where this scent fits perfectly for me. But no, I discovered this fragrance in the little oriental London - better said in the duty-free shop at Heathrow Airport - over 10 years ago.
There attracted me this pretty packaging with dark green leaves and oranges magically and I just had to grab the tester. One spray - and I was transported from London to the south. I wore a white summer dress with a white hat like the Rafaello woman and strode through an orange grove. Orange blossoms surrounded me and a light breeze wafted the delicate floral scent into my nose. So beautiful, so pleasant, so classic and endlessly luxurious. I had to have this one! Infusion de Fleur d'Oranger
is for me to this day the most beautiful orange blossom scent I have ever smelled. It is particularly fine and floral but not exhausting. The fragrance notes are very well balanced. It's just a light oriental sea of flowers that surrounds you. Super nice for summer evenings out. I always feel very luxuriously breathed on when wearing it ;) .
After the fragrance was initially discontinued by Prada, I desperately went in search of a replacement, but to no avail. I bought as a replacement Orange Blossom Cologne
(ok, but not nearly as good), and later found a fragrance that is at least similar: Fleur d'Oranger Intense
, but that is unlike the Prada fragrance in the long run exhausting.
My happy ending came when Prada re-released Infusion de Fleur d'Oranger
with the Infusion range. I don't want to miss it now. Given the occasion, I'm going to wear it again tonight too. Am already again quite raptured :) .
In this sense I send you positive orange blossom greetings.
