Prada will introduce Infusion de Fleur d’Oranger, a new limited edition fragrance, this coming March. It is the first in a projected yearly series of "Ephemeral Infusion" fragrances.
Infusion de Fleur d’Oranger was developed by perfumer Daniela Andrier, and is described as a "descendant” as of Prada Infusion d'Iris and Prada No. 4 Fleur d'Oranger. The notes include orange blossom, tuberose and jasmine.
Prada Infusion de Fleur d’Oranger will be available in 50, 100 and 200 ml Eau de Parfum and in matching body products. (via wwd)
Other recent launches from Prada: Infusion d'Homme.
Update: see a review of Prada Infusion de Fleur d'Oranger.
Wow! Sounds wonderful, I liked Infusion d'Iris a lot and it's wonderful orange touch, I'm sure this one will be realy nice!
I will be VERY surprised if this isn't something I have to own.
I love orange blossoms, and I've almost bought Infusion d'Iris a number of times, but didn't. It looks like I will probably take the plunge on this one. How lovely for spring!
Can't wait to smell this and am quite severly in danger of shelling out way too much money… totally love their understatement and sober Italian style. Feels like wearing one of those perfectly tailored Italian suits.
I don't think I tried Infusion d'Iris, but I liked Infusion d'Homme.
I'd try this if I ever come across it, but I don't like tuberose or jasmine so I doubt I'd like it.
Didn't Prada have a Myrrh/Opoponax perfume? Was the distribution of that more limited?
*Sigh* This along with SL Nuit de Cellophane and the new Annick Goutal will be unsniffed purchases…
I love jasmine and orange blossom, and would like to try. Not getting my hopes up though, the Infusion d'Iris didn't work with my chemistry at all. Gave my sample to my mother-in-law, and it smelled aaamazing on her.
definitely a must sniff! I really like Infusion d'iris and would love to have a bottle….
This sounds like it could be very nice, tuberose & orange blossom that's subtle. Definite must try.
im really really excited about this one!!! infusion de homme is my absolute new fav. i even bought infusion de iris for my sister! we both love them! if this is even half as good as those two then im sure to buy it for my sis and maybe even me if a guy could pull it of like infusion de iris. they both smelled so similar. i love the smell of orange blossom, tuberose, and jasmine! march seems so far away!
Quick! Somebody hide my Visa card, PLEASE!!! Between this and the new AG gardenia and Nuit de Cellophane and that vanilla Hermessenc, I'm already broke and haven't even sniffed 'em yet!!!
Orange Blossom is a total weakness scent for me – this one is going on the to-try list and I'd better be employed when it comes out or I'm going to have to resort to crime.
It does sound perfect for spring…
I think Prada's reputation as a perfume house is growing every year…they're really doing a great job. I don't love the exclusives as much as I love the regular line, which is all the better for me
Yes, click on the link for the No. 4 scent above & you'll find descriptions of all the Prada exclusives.
But this one, at least, won't be so hard to find if you want to smell it first!
the exclusives sound greeeeaat
I want to try all of them D: D:
Best not to get your hopes up anyway, although I've already slid down that hill here
I'm surprised at how much of my bottle I've managed to use given how rarely I “wear” instead of “test” perfume. Still, wish I'd waited to buy it at discount. Probably won't wait w/ this one either.
jonr, very much hoping that march will be here very quickly, as I hate winter…and hopefully, this will be on counter before the “official” launch
LOL — don't buy them ALL unsniffed, 'kay?
Still looking? Keeping my fingers crossed for you…
Mmm… I hope this has that same shimmery quality that Infusion d'Iris has. It sounds special! AND I hope there is a rose coming up in the series.
Thanks! Now that the holidays are over and the new prez is getting to work I am more optimistic.
citrus but not boring; count me in!
*Squeals with excitement*
There was a very limited edition rose that they gave out at some Prada events, apparently…have seen pictures of it, but never smelled it & so far as I know it was never sold.
Ooh, I'll want to keep an eye on this one. I don't like orange blossom generally, but if given the same treatment as iris in the other one, it might just be perfect, refreshing and spring-y.
Have a feeling lots of people here are ready to buy…
I'm easy: love iris, love orange blossom.
…”hopefully, this will be on counter before the “official” launch”…
and you will let us know, right? Can't wait for this one
Will let you know if I know! But often things are in the stores before they put them online, and I'm not a frequent shopper. Hopefully somebody will tell!
They have Fleur d’Oranger testers running about in my local Nordstorms. It won’t be terribly detailed with my experience until you have a review up, but I found it rather lackluster. After a brilliant 3D orange top note, it dulls down to a wan little orange/white musk accord that has a slight allusion to tea. Quite similar to Mandarine Tout Simplement in both effect and subject.
The bottle is amazing, though. =o
I just got a call from NM today that they’ve got it in stock. You’re going to make me cry…I was REALLY looking forward to this! Did you like Infusion d’Iris?
Don’t cry! =o
Well, we seem close to Evil Scent Twins, but yes, I was quite disappointed. After that amazing 15/30 second top note, it lost me. I really hope you find this to be the perfect Summer 2009 scent (and just think I’m a wing nut ;P).
I loved both of the Infusions. So much I can’t decide which to get. xD
Well, if you love Infusion but don’t love this, that is not a good sign.
But if it turns out I *do* love, I certainly won’t think you’re a wing nut — maybe
I was excited about this one too and I just tried it today, but it just didn’t do it for me. The Serge Lutens is still the perfect fleurs d’oranger for me. Pitty…
That helps me, since I don’t love the SL!
I love orange flower, and infusion d’iris works great for me! The only bad thing is it smells really too light, i dun want my perfume permeate the whole room, but at least it can be smelled by someone who stand right next to me lol…….for the iris one, seems like i’m the only one who can smell it *sign* i love it so much I even bought the traveling size! Anyway, I tried SL’s orange flower one but it smelled like the orange flower was caked by some dirt…….so now in HK, this one was finally in Prada store!!! And only 2 shops out of all the branches here have got it, sales said they will have an official launch around 21st April….but i really can’t wait! So i tracked it down and it smelled just so perfect! Unlike those fruity floral scent that has flooded the market, one can barely distinguish them i guess…..this one is really special, it smells sparkling orangy at the top note, and the dried down smells kinda soapy for me, as if you just get out of a refreshing shower!!! This scent is really worth trying……and it’s birthday gift for myself ;P
Thanks for the review, it sounds worth trying at any rate! I love the Infusion d’Iris, love orange blossom…just worried about the soapy part, which I sometimes like & sometimes don’t.
Okay, so we were together in the hope springs eternal group and I have to say you are by yourself now. I was near an NM today and stopped in to get a spritz. I forget which thread we were on when I talked about there is soapy like Zest and there is soapy like fine triple-milled French soap and although this is not Zest, it is more like a mid-range hotel soap than a luxury offering. I would be better off rubbing my arm with the Orange Blossom soap I have. The initial spritz is a true delight but I could tell within seconds this was not going to fare well. I don’t mind smelling freshly washed, but I do want to smell like I bothered to rinse. I’m so sad, this was my most-looked-forward-to offering of the spring.
On a better note, I scent-strip-tested the 3 new Sisleys and they are very fun and springy. #1 and #3 will be getting second looks and a skin test next time I am downtown.
We liked the same Sisleys. The prices is just outrageous though! I thought they were great, but few things in this world are that great….I mean, they’re just summery colognes, after all.
lol – I didn’t even ask – everything is out of my price range right now so I have to look at all that later. Right now I’m just trying things on. I did try a tiny dab of the LeLabo Fleur d’Oranger last night – MUCH more up my alley – fresh and green and spring-flowery – so far, anyway, it was just a tiny dab. More testing after my shower today.
IIRC, the Sisley scents are $160 each. Ouch!
Long time reader on this sight and first time making a comment on this sight. I went to Nordstrom the other day because I was so hyped up about this one. I like this scent and bought the small bottle. It is a bit pricey at $74.00 but I ran out of the Iris since February. I think this one is a great summer scent for me. My husband made a comment about this one and said to me that I smelled very nice. I will get this for the summer and the Iris which I fell in love with with when it first came out for the winter.
Hi and welcome! Looks like this one is shaping up to be a “love it or hate it”, and more curious than ever to try it. Glad you’re in the “love it” camp!
Add me to the disappointed camp. I sprayed some on while passing through Bloomie’s, and by the time I was 100 yards out the door, could barely smell it at all anymore. I assumed I must have sprayed too lightly, so when I got to Nordstrom’s, I sprayed some more. It just doesn’t last more than a few minutes on me, where Id’I lasts all day with decent sillage. In the few minutes when I could smell it, though, it smelled identical to the Id’I other than having orange blossom in place of iris. Having one, I don’t need the other at all, even if it did last.
I wonder if you’re anosmic to the musk they’re using … this lasts HOURS on me. Just posted a review…
