The ultimate fragrance wardrobe: Les Infusions de Prada
Quietly elegant. Stealth luxe. Unerringly fresh. We could very well be describing Miuccia Prada's envelope-pushing fashion house or her collection of fragrances. Dubbed Infusions de Prada, these Eau de Parfums housed in generously-sized flaçons stand out both or the way they concoct a fragrance out of a seemingly simple idea — whether it's a floral or woody note — and for its elegant, colour-coded bottles. Here we look at the six fragrances that now make up the permanent collection — all created by perfumer Daniela Andrier — and explore who they might appeal to.
