This is a fragrance that I blindly bought for myself, and have grown to love even more than from that first purchase. So damn dark, it creates an aura of lived-in things! I once had Prada Amber pour Homme, which has a special sweetish-clean-powdery appeal, long lasting and great sillage. And then, while ago I came across this one, I immediately liked it and decided to buy.
Despite it is supposed to be a flanker, though it is actually diverse and miles away from the original Luna Rossa. Some notes are alike, but the scent smells different and... It is moderate, not extreme at all! Extreme is very different than the original Luna Rossa or the Sport edition, I was surprised that a flanker can be this different, but perhaps they wanted a versatile collection which makes fans buy all versions as they cannot be replacements for each other.
I have the EDP, the family is oriental-spicy, and at the very first spray, I recognize a nice fresh peppery with a bit of clove, kind of licorice, a flash of bergamot, and something similar to a spicy cake. it is creepy dark, but fascinating. I guess the contribute comes from the pepper and lavender mixed together in the top notes, so good! It smells modern, sophisticated and sexy.
Well, this cologne is non-linear, and it is incredible how it varies in the first hour on the skin. No matter if the opening is a bit harsh and spicy, however, give it 10 minutes to settle then this fragrance becomes a very smooth, beautiful and luxurious amber vanilla blend with Prada's signature soapiness vibe. Thanks to amber & vanilla in a tobacco style, the mix makes it seductive. If the initial accord is warm, rich, sweet-dry, woody, and leathery, in the long term it changes to animalic and powdery, a good one not like baby powder, which creates an aura of lived-in things.
In my opinion, it is elegant, manly, with a lot of masculinity for the entire last, and as I said with dark and fresh tinges. A fairly casual scent, better for evening and night out, during cold weather such as fall and winter. In a word, Prada Luna Rossa Extreme is peppery, spicy and peppery. There are other notes, but they are framed by this robust peppery essence. That being said, Prada Luna Rossa is a real gem of a fragrance to sport during the fall and winter months. Luna Rossa is a sweet amber and spice scent that gets the job done with utmost quality. The EDP projection is above average, and it even has good longevity, about 8-10 hours and more. I wore it last night and the day after a can smell it on the clothes. Pay attention, this is a compliment getter, I get lots of compliments when I have that on.
