To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I wasn't sure at first with this one. I had never smelled it before but decided to risk it based on reviews. Out of the bottle it seemed a little to soapy smelling at first. It also seemed very strong when first applied. I was a little afraid that everyone around me early in the morning might be turned off by it. Once settled out I warmed up to it.
Some reviews say they got a fake. I have to ask was it a third party seller on Amazon? If and when I buy a fragrance from Amazon I always make sure Amazon is the seller. Otherwise you have no idea who you are dealing with. Just my $.02
My first reaction at smelling the opening was... Wow! The iris note comes in strong and over time, gives way to a powdery(think baby powder) sweetness. Lasts about 4-5 hours on my skin. This is the type of cologne you wear to meet your girlfriend's parents. Or that you put on to smell really good in the office without fear of gassing everyone around you. I like to keep a small decant with me to reapply after lunch time. It smells fresh, clean and utterly innofensive. Highly recommended if you are a man in your 30's and up.
Love the scent, but it's very shortlived compared to the previous smaller bottle i purchased from a store. Not sure if it's a watered-down version, or if Prada changed it themselves to sell more. Regardless, love the scent
