My Fair Lady
This fragrance came into my collection in a small detour. I can't remember where he came to my attention, but I really wanted to test him, which I did in the perfumery - once again on my way back through the city from work.

First sprayer.
Meeeeehhhhhh, FULL flowery! I felt like I was in a bad movie, in which the adored person succulently smashes the giant bouquet of flowers around the ears of her admirer, and even a few candles get broken.
Ui, näää, I don't think he's mine.

Later, a totally pleasant, powdery scent always came into my nose, which came from my arm?!

So that was the famous love at second sight.
The explosion of flowers is going down very fast and here they already mentioned The Tudors and Sex & the City - that's exactly where I would classify the fragrance. :-)

I associate this fragrance with a lady, a woman of the world, who knows what she wants, who is self-confident and self-assured, without appearing arrogant.
Feminine, feminine, powdery, creamy with a floral base, almost like an expensive skin care fragrance. But the flowers are in perfect symbiosis with the rest, it's sweetish (that's why I like it so much *g*).
Fits perfectly in the office or in everyday life.

The fragrance is for me for the transition, spring and autumn. It is too tame for me for winter, except on warmer days, but too flowery again for midsummer. Could become a darling, unobtrusive and noble.

PS: I can now also understand the comment "it's like O-juice, it must never go empty"! :-) By the way, "The One" moved in for me as successor for D&G, I would use both for the same seasons and occasions.

I knew you even before you existed.
When I received a sample of it when ordering online, I thought only OMG I was always looking for such a fragrance. Maybe there are more scents that smell similar but I haven't found them yet?! But I always wanted such a fragrance I can't describe how it can be but in my imagination or what you might call it I have always searched for really exactly such a fragrance. I was really shocked. I can't describe this fragrance for me it smells extraordinary I get really stomach ache (with happiness) when I smell it. Do you know Sex and the City? If so, I have always imagined a Carrie Bradshaw smells :D. He's elegant... sexy... he's much more like I don't have words for it. But of course this is all my personal opinion and feeling. He also reminds me sometimes of summer nights

The holiday photo provided
La Femme is one of those scents I like to overlook. He's nice at the strip test, but nothing gets stuck. Once again something feminine-floral-creamy and totally unagitated. but because I have shot myself at just such a bit at the moment (at least if I let it on the skin) I finally had to give La Femme a chance ...

He smells like Fragipani in the first place. I imagine a rich, sun-drenched and summer-dressed lady posing broadly smiling with a flower chain around her neck for a photo at the start of her Hawaii holiday. Because you can't go to Hawaii and not make a flower chain picture at least once. But then the woman retreats from and to her luxury resort and is guaranteed not to spend the rest of her holiday dealing with local customs.

The tuberose is the fine lady (I always associate tuberose scent with fine ladies) and the fragipani the exotic flower with which it adorns itself. It smells good, no question, but everything is a little too sterile and monotonous for me. Vanilla and Ylang Ylang blend in seamlessly to make the fragrance soft and feminine, but I lack a certain twist. Vetiver and beeswax would have been great but unfortunately I don't notice anything about it.

La Femme does not have a classic fragrance. Fragipani, tuberose and vanilla alternate in the foreground. I personally like that better than when a fragrance develops so linearly. first a head note, then a heart note, then a base note. However, for me the matter here is simply too sterile-flauschi-wauschi-heile-world-situated-holiday-photo-like. That's nice for 2 hours, when a Vetiver base brings me back to the ground, but I don't have to have that for a whole day now.

Durability and Sillage are appropriate for the price range. La Femme lasts all day, but you shouldn't treat yourself to more than a handful of sprays. After all, we have a Prada fragrance here and people always like to dust around with a lot of powder.

The bottom line is that Prada La Femme is once again a pure question of taste. Qualitatively there is nothing to criticize. It is wonderful as a fragrance at work, because you are not distracted by exorbitant fragrances and roller coaster-like fragrances of the daily work. If you are looking for something like this, you have a solid companion for everyday life

Erotic.
Actual so I'm not really into sweet scents. So at least not flowery sweet, oriental sweet goes there already rather. When I set off to treat myself to a new scent, I looked more in the direction of "Hermes Absolut" or something summery in that direction.

And then the perfume consultant came and asked if I didn't want to try something completely different...

I'm really excited. It is flowery, erotic, sweet, a little like honey - but also not. I feel incredibly feminine and attractive with this fragrance, it's crazy.

It doesn't last soooo long and if I spray it on in the morning, I'll add towards the afternoon, but that's ok. With very young girls I cannot imagine him, for me he embodies a woman between 30-50 years.

Everyday fragrance with level
My collection has been turned upside down lately. I have discovered many new things for myself and have banished others... During the many tests old favourites moved into the background and were totally neglected for some months. But when I reapplied Prada La Femme for a long time today, I was enchanted again.
A gentle, feminine, flowery, adult fragrance. When I smell him I think of cultivated, self-confident and smart women and I hope this class, which he radiates in my eyes, also transmits a little to me. ;)
It is not as sweet as so many mainstreamers, and instead wonderfully creamy. And luckily that works without musk, with which I personally always have my difficulties.
For this I take a mix of wonderful white flowers was. To name these one by one would have been difficult for me without a fragrance pyramid. But when I read this: Frangipani, Ylang-Ylang and Tuberose, is almost as if Daniela Andrier wanted to give me a personal pleasure.
Beeswax is also clearly perceptible and provides for the special refinement.
So I am very happy with the scent and can only advise any friend of flowery scents to take a test.

For real women
After I had finished my long marriage I didn't want to smell like before and went on the search. Not quite young anymore, but also not yet old ;)))), I could not make friends with the sweet and sticky scents. This piece of jewellery came just in time. Soft and gentle, creamy like an expensive body lotion, I feel well and always well cared for. The fragrance is unobtrusive enough for the office, yet it has already brought me many compliments there. Candidate for post-purchase sale.

Difficult to Describe...
Prada La Femme is one of those tricky scents to describe. It's a rather complex mish-mash of notes where no note tends to dominate.

I enjoy smelling Prada La Femme however I am hesitant to buy it. On my skin it's a warm, slightly sweet tuberose fragrance which dries down to an even smoother, creamier and somewhat clean floral. Due to its crazy, busy composition my nose tires quickly and I find that I am having to reach for the coffee beans more often than I'd like.

I am unsure as to where this fragrance fits in the current market. Its sweet vanilla-honey scent would appeal to the younger market, however the bottle design and advertising points it in the direction of more mature, classy, brand conscious women.

Despite the fact that I quite like this honeyed, creamy and tropical interpretation of tuberose, I have grave fears for its future. It's definitely unique, I'll give it that, but in saying so it's also a confusing, hard to wear fragrance. At this point in time I would highly recommend testing on your skin first, as Prada La Femme is not something that anyone should be blind purchasing.

Prada La Femme is definitely not a white floral. I would categorise it as an oriental floral although it's not particularly ambery nor spicy. In lots of ways it's nearly as controversial as the 2004 Prada Amber.
