the same and yet different!
So, since I had both the l'homme intense, the l'homme and this one here & have I measure me times to give here my opinion to the best.
The scent is pretty much the same to the original l'homme but has a nice, really just super light but very recognizable freshness. Ginger and the woody base I do not smell out here! It can be worn in the office as well as casual, ideally in spring & summer. He does not antagonize, is liked by all or accepted without comment.
I would prefer this to the original since it is the same and yet fresher. For lovers of the l'homme series an absolute MUST!!!

Prada L'homme L'eau v2
At the beginning I would like to say that I'm not a big fan of this powdery/lipstick iris vibe of L'homme line. But every single scent in this line is amazingly done and I enjoy smelling them from time to time.
Often flankers are a pleasant alternatives to their original brother. But sometimes there are flankers like A*men Ultimate, which completely lost the DNA of original A*men and sometimes there are flankers that are even too similar to their predecessor. And that's what Prada L'homme Water Splash is.
My question is: Why Prada made a scent that is exactly the same as L'homme L'eau released 2 years before? Or should I ask, what is the reason to buy L'homme L'eau when Water Splash does exactly the same but at a cheaper price? I know that maybe I'm overreacting, but in my honest opinion, L'homme line of Prada became a little bit boring by this time. I hope that in the future they would give us something more interesting and slightly different in this line.
Nevertheless it is a very solid spring/summer clean scent, don't get me wrong

Can be done
Smells really good and the fragrance is quite similar to the scent of the classic Prada L'Homme. Not a bad buy for me, because I got it quite cheap (even if it was still not super cheap - typical Prada prices)
+smells great (fresh, powdery, spicy warm)
-the Sillage is quite good and pleasantly perceptible for the first 30 minutes, after that the scent quickly becomes body-hugging.
PS: this is my first comment in Parfumo

A Bigger Splash
First a short but necessary excursion.

Fragrance markings and fragrance pyramids are a minefield. We're reading: There's ginger in there. So we search for the ginger until we find it. Whether it is now contained or not (this could probably only be found out in the laboratory to some extent). But sometimes it's the other way round: we smell something that doesn't seem to be included. A prominent example: the Layton Exclusif. Up to a correction proposal, based on the official manufacturer's page, everyone thought that the fragrance contained the scents Zibet and Oud. (Allegedly) Blow cake! The "Animalik", which even my amateur nose meant to sniff out, is (allegedly) not included. A brief comparison of the other fragrance pyramids of Parfums de Marly fragrances with those of the manufacturer showed that almost all had to be revised and thousands of perfumes and perfumos had sniffed out "things" that (allegedly) are not included. Psychological science offers numerous explanatory models for this collectively erroneous olfaction. But maybe the problem is also on the other (manufacturer)side.

Why this introduction? For two reasons.

On the one hand because this observation has made me generally cautious about fragrances, and I have come to the conclusion in the meantime: The fragrance pyramids of the manufacturers are likely to be strongly marketing-driven and may even be adapted afterwards - one should primarily trust one's own nose and those of other "end consumers". Meanwhile I don't believe anybody anymore who claims that he/she could "imagine the real scent" on the basis of a scent pyramid, no matter how many thousand scents have already been tested. A scent is more than the sum of its scents - and you can obviously not always rely on the scents given.

On the other hand, with regard to the scents - to finally mention the Water Splash - one could assume that this L'Homme flanker is completely different from the original, which has already become a classic. Because: They then shared only neroli and cedar(wood). But: Every not snuffy nose sniffs out even at night three spontaneously from sleep that these are two very, very closely related scents (see numerous statements below). The best explanation: A Flanker can be sold better with large differences in scents on paper.

Nevertheless, in my opinion Water Splash is an interesting fragrance for at least the following target groups:
1) All those who do not yet own L'Homme or other Flanker and would like to purchase a very similar fragrance at a fraction of the price from the same manufacturer and officially the same perfumer. Currently with about 0.33 € / ml really cheap to have.
2) All those who appreciate L'Homme very much, but find it a little too "distant" (yes, that is a completely subjective impression). The Water Splash adds a delicate, slightly bitter-citric fruitiness to the L'Homme DNA, which for me makes it a decisive nuance "warmer", "more lively" and "more summery". (Like an aperitif with mineral water vs. one with mineral water and a dash of orange).
3) All Prada fans who just want to own every Prada fragrance (which should be quite expensive).
4) All those who are looking for a serious, not boring "business fragrance" that can be worn without hesitation even in their leisure time, and who can make friends with a 150ml bottle.
5) All those who would like to take a seat in David Hockney's famous painting "A Bigger Splash" on the empty director's chair at the edge of the swimming pool in front of a luxurious Californian flat-roof bungalow on a day with a bright blue sky, to witness that title-giving "Splash" after jumping from the 1-meter board, and who value being appropriately scented for the context.

Oh menno....
Then fold your arms and the corners of your mouth downwards. My 6-year-old I don't get his chocolate ice cream.

The Intense differs strongly from the original. Darker and more intense.

The l'eau is beautiful blue. Watery. Fresher. "L'eau-iger".

Logically what I hope to get from the Water Splash, or?

But no, nothing like that.

There is a difference to the original, but unfortunately not as Water Splash-ig as I thought.

I'm going to find a good colleague to lay off

A slightly more citric version of Prada L'Homme L'Eau. Longevity is not that great but at least you get 150 ml instead of 100 ml

Just your regular Prada L'homme DNA. The lightest from the family with a slight spice to it. Soapy, fresh with a great price/quality ratio.
