Momentous occasion- my husband actually noticed and complimented me on this fragrance last night! He loves it on me and so do I. First sampled this when it was introduced, but didn't purchase it- I guess I couldn't get past it being a man's fragrance. Sampled it again a couple of weeks ago- sure enough, still great. Got a coupon for my local dept. store last week and finally took the plunge. I've worn it every day since- my husband just returned from a business trip and couldn't stop sniffing my neck. He was so surprised when I told it was Prada for Men.
This does smell very clean, soft and sexy. Not overly musky and thankfully not a hint of fruit or food! I'm so sick of perfumes that smell like something to eat. Love it- you should try it!

Clean, beautiful scent. I initially got this for myself thinking it would make a great unisex fragrance (and it would). It sits and simmers quietly like fresh laundry in the sun. For something so soft and light, it does project and last very well.
People who dislike it tend to slam it with the rather unsophisticated and overly-copied phrase "smells like soap" but those who appreciate it know it's so much more than that, and I'm sorry for those who are too anosmic to pick up anything other than that.
Contrary to others, this does not remind me of a more "feminine", "sensitive" type of man. What it DOES remind me of is the type of man who doesn't care enough to fuss with choosing and buying his own bath products, so he uses whatever the woman in his life chooses to place in the bathroom. When he comes out of the shower, his slightly damp skin carries that lovely mixture of masculine and feminine smells, from a powdery-creamy body wash, to a fresh-floral shampoo, to a herbal-fresh masculine face wash.
And that's kinda sexy.
I got this because of a suggestion from a fellow MUA member who has the same fragrance taste as I do.
This scent smells more so like a moment than a person. I imagine the hotels you see in the Armani commercials to smell like this scent. This makes me think of a very classy girl grooming her nails in the morning or a very attractive guy getting out of the shower, patting his face with a cotton towel.
It's a very clean and light fragrance, but still noticeable. I remember one night I was going to sleep and I put this on. And when I woke up my boyfriend told me that he really appreciated the scent (it's sense of light heartedness.).
This is very causal, I feel you could wear this at any time of the day anywhere. This does have a light masculine touch, but I don't think it's noticeable to other people that it's a mens cologne. Actually my boyfriend couldn't tell.
I love that if makes me feel well groomed. I know that sounds quite odd but this would be the primary reason why I love this EDT so much.
I was thinking about buying some cologne for my dad for Father's Day. Based on reviews (both here and on the Sephora site) I thought this might be the one. I went to Sephora and sprayed some on the inside of my elbo so I could smell it off and one for a few hours. At first I really liked it. It is definitely unisex and I could see a woman wearing this. For a little moment I thought I might want to wear it. Sadly, I was really disappointed in the dry down. It's definitely a powdery amber scent but something in the final note reminded me too much of one of my grandfathers who was not a nice man. I think he wore Giorgio for men. Anyway, I had to scrub it off my skin and cross this off my list.
I picked up a bottle of this for my husband on one of my trips to the UK for work. I was awed by its creamy, spicy, lightly musky goodness.
I agree that this could be a unisex fragrance, but I simply love this on my husband. The notes of sandalwood, vanilla, and cardamom are really nice and last for hours. I find this very sexy without being an "in your face" scent... it's not very noticeable unless you're close, which I like.
I just hope this is available in the U.S. by the time we need to repurchase.
I LOVE this scent. unisex, as the other reviewers have described it. It's sexy without being cliche, and i love the inclusion of sandalwood in this.
GORGEOUS SCENT! My boyfriend wears this and it smells heavenly! It also has great staying power. I love it so much that I went ahead and bought one for myself.... I just remember not to wear it when I see him! :P But it definitely can be worn by women... so I agree with the previous reviewer in that it can be unisex!
What a gorgeous fragrance! Got this unsniffed (which I like to do every now and then just for fun). Planned to give this to DH but may end up keeping for me!!
This is truly a unisex scent, even though it is most definitely marketed and named for the men's market. Notes include: bergamot, mandarin, neroli, cardamom, geranium, vetiver, orange blossom, myrrh, labdanum, sandalwood, tonka bean, vanilla, saffron, patchouli and leather.
Initial spritz is clean and dry with the bergamot, mandarin, neroli and vetiver most prominent...crisp & clean but very smooth and no sharp edges.
The dry down is beautiful with a soft creaminess emerging from the musk-vanilla-tonka notes. And the patchouli, leather and sandalwood keep it edgy and interesting, and prevent it from getting overly sweet from the very prominent vanilla. Love this!!! continued >>
