A Drop in the Ocean
Like so many other fragrance houses, Prada provides us every year with a brilliant new offshoot of its Luna Rossa series. But what to do when you can't think of an innovative theme for the upcoming flanker? That's right, either simply observe what the competition or the company's step-siblings are up to and then either swim along with them or do the complete opposite. Or choose an ever-present theme with which you can't really go wrong in principle, unless the fragrance is no good per se: summer, holiday, sea, an aquatic fresh fragrance that evokes summer holiday feelings even in the deepest lockdown and dreariest rainy weather. Just rummage in the clothes box.
But one could also argue otherwise: A fragrance that harmonizes with many fresh shower gels and allows men a good addition after the daily washing rite. Previously, so 30 years ago, there was for the vast majority of designer fragrances an almost unimaginable range of care products with the corresponding fragrance. That fell victim to the controller's red pen almost everywhere. So put out a fragrance that would willingly hop in the box with any discount shower gel, if you want to put it that way. Voila!
I like the Prada bottles. There's still a certain value behind them, even in this plain blue box. A beautiful, solid, dark blue bottle, with a very high-quality atomizer and a red logo for contrast. The transparent protective button is best disposed of immediately, after transport it is useless. Such a flacon you can put on the shelf, the declassifies all crowns, bars or cups. Solidity just.
A first spray and it's like coming home to your parents or grandma and grandpa after a long time. Not that it would smell like Prada Luna Rossa Ocean with them. But it smells very familiar, as if you had never been away, just like home.
Many old familiar freshness components come out, citrusy notes provide the necessary opening freshness kick. Quickly push herbs and spices after and there is again this reminder of all the aquatic fragrances of the 1990s, which were so innovative and tone-setting at the time. A few big names of that time come to mind, here sometimes more, sometimes less similar and pronounced. Too many warm notes do not come even in the finish, it remains rather herbaceous-green, which I like, because most modern designer fragrances are much too sweet for me in the back.
A masculine fresh scent, as if fresh out of the shower, if you have then there to a blue packaging has reached. This fragrance fits complementary and helps one to feel and transport this freshness experience qualitatively further. Unfortunately, the durability is not particularly pronounced, after a good six hours the last herbaceous notes disappear. The fragrance was initially still quite voluminous, only after a good hour he retreats to arm's length.
Prada Luna Rossa Ocean lives up to its name, it develops a certain Mediterranean freshness. The theme of many other similar fragrances is indeed skillfully taken up, but unfortunately also not modern further developed. So it remains a drop in the ocean - a drop in the ocean.
