Sophisticated, expensive-smelling vanilla(ish). Starts out with a slight medicinal note, or something a bit like burning cardboard. Becomes a delicious vanilla. Vanilla for a grown-up. Vanilla for someone who absolutely does not want to smell like cookies or candy. This never goes cheap or burnt-sugar on me. Its faint notes of resin or camphor keep it original and interesting over the course of the day. Itís gentle and comforting and yet unique.

Very low sillage, pretty good longevity.

To me, Prada Benjoin is the snuggly winter version of Dior Cologne Blanche. It starts out with some herbal sharpness (rosemary and bitter orange?) and dries down to a milky, vanillic benzoin that stays close to the skin. It's the kind of fragrance that makes people want to lean in a little closer and inhale. The bottle is hilarious in its utilitarian ugliness -- it actually resembles a clear glass travel bottle of mouthwash from the 1970s, complete with a plastic screw top and a plain label that looks like it was printed off someone's Inkjet -- but I guess it's more secure than parfum with a stopper. The stuff inside the bottle is great, and that's what really matters.
