It’s Christmas Countdown time and on Day 20, it’s one for the boys, with this inspired fragrance from Prada.
Luna Rossa is based around classic lavender notes. But, this being Prada, this traditional ingredient is given a modern dimension. The result? An unusual floral for men with top notes of bitter orange and lavender mixed with sage and mint. The base has an ambrette tone to give it a sensual feel. It’s gorgeous.
This scent is actually inspired by the concept of sailing and is named after the sailing team ‘Red Moon’ or Luna Rossa, which competes in the American Cup. Devised by perfumer Daniela Andrier of Givaudan, it’s an intense yet fresh scent – much like the sport itself – and comes in a bottle based on modern sailboats. Think wind in his hair, saltiness on his skin and the freshness of the sea…
A present that will no doubt go down swimmingly well.
