Have fun with the cyber mint :)
I start times with 'nem small rhyme, that has already inspired many a Kommi:

Already for the second time I had him,
now he was allowed to go forever.

O.K., for that they have turned around earlier at DSDS and booed in the direction of the exit, but corresponds to the facts;) But for 'nen real Schmunzler I still provide later. So, first of all to the Luna Rossa:

The prelude is strong, immediately the mint is dominant and is underpinned by the freshness of bitter orange. Although the fruit is already after a quarter of an hour somewhat more in the background, but thereby gives the lavender more space. It is more of the sweet variety and gives the fragrance something light and transparent. In addition, however, something unusual is also found here.

For Luna Rossa acts cool and warm at the same time. Is this perhaps due to the addition "Nana" of mint? Because that is on the one hand cool, almost metallic, yes I somehow associate "cyber" with it. It has something modern, almost futuristic sterile. But it also brings a soft warmth that makes it fuller and rounder. So I imagine that this mint is quite feminine ... Nana just;)

Something slightly powdery is also to be perceived, but you may be too tempted that this would have to be so with a Prada. Drum shows the diagram rightly only 7% to this ... I hardly make out the clary sage, because above all floats the spacy mint-lavender mix which is the main statement of Luna Rossa. So it projects to me at half arm's length for about 6 hours on the skin, 2-3 hours longer on clothing, becoming a bit softer, brighter and less metallic towards the back. The often-maligned Ambroxan does not interfere here at all, but its light synthetic becomes here skillfully a stylistic device of the Pradas.

Conclusion: Anyone who does not yet know this fragrance and stands on mint, should test it alone because of its unusualness times. An elegant elixir that can be worn on almost all occasions except midsummer, and is very reliable due to its linear progression. I, however, was the fine-synthetic lavender-cool/minzig-warm ambivalence but a little too unapproachable, which brings us now to the announced Schmunzler:

Over about 1.5 years I had the Luna Rossa now already for the second time, truly a good fragrance. Nevertheless, I found that I do not wear it often enough. And since I just reduce my collection anyway, he was also allowed to move on.

So put in the souk and experienced the following with a Parfuma, whose nick *BleuDQ* is already program, when she wrote me:

"Have just sent [the money]...but as I see now, 4 ct too little....now also do not know, am actually very for correct deals, but 4 ct forward? Any ideas? Do you want to just credit it for future deals? Or you spray yourself again extra thick with now my fragrance;)"

My answer: "I would be happy if you come to my fun team ... because you have just provided a very sweet laugh with the 4 cents ;-))))) One always wishes for such a correct perfume ... so sponge wiped over and off for it."

So I got to know our dear BleuDQ and wish her from now on

much fun with the cyber mint :)

Oh, Yes I Would, Boyfriend!
I didn't have a Male test subject handy for this so I am using a complex, top secret algorythm and my best intuition to acertain my reaction on this clearly "Pour Homme" scent I recieved with a recent fragrance purchase. The first impression is "Energy!" with a capital E. There is much life force and stregth in this scent, young Grasshopper.I get that brisk vigorous green and awakening minty note along with a robust clary sage. This is definitely a daytime fully alert and on the job kind of vibe. There is something that catches my personal Libido in this formulation- Ambrette- love this note on Men & Women- it smells great on humans, in general and soothes. The Lavender here is a whisper, I would not even notice it if it wasn't pointed out to me.I can imagine that this heats up on the body to a warm day to night signature scent...o.k., I am just going to say it, it's become like an elephant in the room...underneath the zippy clary sage and moden spearmint is something almost Polo-like. All too familiar and still alluring since 1985! This scent fades on my skin fairly quickly- into a clean soapy background- which is a good thing, IMHO. I could stand to be in a room, trapped in an elevator or on a desserted island with someone who smelled like this indefinitely...and I am pretty picky in this facet. I would call this a lightweight sillage, moderate projection green woodsy fresh scent that reminds me a little bit of D&G's "Le Fou". It is definitely work-able. Have your people call my people.

Moonshine on "steel wool rough"
More of a bluish shimmer - definitely not red! But "moon" is a good keyword. Because here, on a very clear, cold night, it shines full and silvery. In the winter garden, all the grasses, the branches of the trees and all the plants are covered in hoar frost that shimmers like steel wool. The panicles of lavender, although withered but still fragrant when rubbed between the fingers, shimmer in the moonlight, densely coated with needles of ice. The slightly rough leaves of the mint are also shrouded in cold splendor.
It almost makes you shiver when you put this image in front of your "inner eye". The olfactory impression is similar.
But: on very hot summer and fall days, a fragrance like this can work wonders. It "cools the bonnet", refreshes in a magical way and instead of shivering, a very pleasant experience of freshness is guaranteed.
This icy blue fragrance is neither an "Aquat" nor a "Wald- und Wiesenschrat", but somehow a mixture of "Franzbranntwein" in good and lavender water. It smells quite straightforward and lasts quite a long time with a pleasant "sillage". An impressive "winter picture" in fragrance form! :-))

Techno musk
The EDT Prada Luna Rossa (hereafter: PLR) was actually supposed to go to my brother.

Of course, the bottling still had to go through my "quality control".

So I sprayed. I was immediately transported back to the summer day when I wore PLR for the first time.

It was the same fragrance, but my nose had become more refined, so I could now "read" PLR better:
The musk (from the ambrette seed) and the ambroxan create a soft, sweetish base scent that is inviting and enveloping.

The mint is there to create a fresh, cool contrast.

The aromatic sage, which has an almost floral quality, blends into the warm, fresh surroundings.
It enlivens the fragrance, like a kind of rainbow that hovers and shimmers between the poles of warmth and freshness.
So much for the fragrance construction and here is the interpretation: the animalistic has been lifted into our time, contrasted with technical fragrance notes.
All in all, I think the fragrance is a very good and convincing work.

And, incidentally, it also suits my taste. But I don't think it's for my brother after all.

(- I must have fallen for the scent memory here)

Masculine fresh
Very fresh smell, mint in this reminds of Lush Dirty. Here though it's not so harsh. After the lavander takes.
The strange thing is that this is more Sport than the actual Sport version.
Go figure!

Nice powdery opening with a weird and fresh herbal-mint note. The drydown is very forgettable.

Linear fragrance composed by lavender, a hint of mint and ambrette in the base. Inoffensive scent, quite versatile, with a weak performance.

Spring in a bottle. Mint + lavender is what you get. The masculine fresh essence which pleases everyone. Better than the sport and black
