Ugh, this WAS on my wish list. Love this stuff! Absolute classic. Where EdM blossoms into an intricate structure of anisic herbs, two types of pepper, papyrus and salt fatty ambergris, ApH has little or no development - it just gets a bit powdery. PApH is a soft citrus-floral fragrance that wouldn't be out of place on a woman's dresser, laundry room or shower soap dish. That mix of grape drink and Windex that's in everything - usually I hate scents that use those, but Prada Amber pretties them up with a lot of upfront white flowers, sparkling soapy ginger, and a subtly peachy old fashioned butterscotchy amber. There are some common tones with Narciso for Him, especially the musky facets of Amber, but Narciso is much more musk-focussed, and decidely gloomier. I suppose it smells like soap, but not your typical bar soap like Prada's Infusion D'homme. This one's worth the midrange price point it's currently at. I can see a man who wears this dressed up/suit and it smells very professional and clean smelling. I've given it all day wear 3-4 days in a few weeks time and just can't stand it. There are worse reasons for wearing fragrances. Wear this with dressy clothes and feel like a million bucks! Sheesh. I hava a mini splash bottle I got as a free sample in a prada store in the mall. The fragrance is promoted as a masculine scent, but could easily be unisex or even feminine without striking forward in any definitive direction.
If you want to go around smelling like an overdose of scented laundry chemicals, you've come to the right place. There's a lot about it that I absolutely love but the love comes and goes in fleeting moments. This stuff smells like success. Having said that, I believe that it is very discreet and a lot more discreet than Prada Infusion d'Homme, which is also a jewel and which is instantly recognisable and a lot more persistant. I can see why some think this is femme because it has this...powdery and perfumy smell/vibe. It is true that it is a little soapy, as some have suggested, but for me this is precisely the point, i.e. This one works on both a utilitarian and fragrance artistic level. Find out more about Prada Amber pour Homme by Prada. High quality scent. The creamy cinnamon tobacco basenotes are fantastic as well, though I wish they were more concentrated. Can't really compare it to any other fragrances. These two identities never seem to intersect, which is frustrating. That's the best I can describe it. The ingredients are very well balanced. Smells like expensive soap or baby powder. What I love about Prada scents is they do not give me a headache.
There was a 99% chance this would turn out terrible, but somehow they got the mix just right and it's actually quite beautiful, clean and bright but also rich and complex. 8-plus hours easy, every time. Mandarin and bergamot are there in the beginning, but you only notice them for a brief initial period.
