At the epicenter of the House, La Femme Prada and L’Homme Prada represent a fluid relationship between polar definitions. The family of fragrances draws on both time-honored ingredients and surprising compositions yielding fragrances that defy expectations. Innocence is undercut with carnality, the lush is crossed with the refined. The collection explores a range of masculinities and femininities: idiosyncratic, individual, defiant, and highly personal. As a whole, they form an olfactory investigation into the very nature of gender: a dynamic range of expressions that reject the clichés of fixed categories.
As an olfactory chimera, La Femme Prada is an invitation to emotion. Straying from fragrance’s more familiar routes, a sultry journey is evoked by its Frangipani wake. This solar note, a hyper-sensual floral, evokes the dewy humidity associated with the faraway flower. The note is interwoven with ylang-ylang, its spice made smooth with beeswax, vanilla, and tuberose. A distilled Vetiver finishes the fragrance, grounding, and rounding its feel.
