If you can't afford Prada's fall 2007 collection but still want a bit of Italian fabulousness, you'll be in luck come September. That's when Prada introduces its third fragrance for women, Infusion d'Iris.
According to WWD, this fragrance is somewhat non-traditional for a women's scent:
The fragrance is balanced by top notes of orange blossom and mandarin, as well as base notes of galbanum, lentisc, benzoin, incense, vetiver and cedarwood. ... Executives said that notes like vetiver and cedarwood, which are often found in men's scents, differentiate Infusion d'Iris from other women's scents.

Like the new Estee Lauder fragrance, Infusion d'Iris reaches back into the company's heritage for inspiration. The packaging, inspired by vintage fragrance bottles, was designed by Miuccia Prada herself. It features Prada's signature pale green color and the Prada crest, which was designed by Prada's grandfather in 1913.
Infusion d'Iris debuts in September at Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus (where you can pre-order now) and Prada boutiques. It comes in three sprays ($67–$125) and two splash versions ($210, $350). There's also a shower gel ($45), a body lotion ($50), bath salts ($70!), and a set of two perfumed soaps ($40). But wait, there's more! You can buy a $75 candle, linen water ($75), a pack of 10 cotton towelettes for $60, and perfumed drawer inserts for $60. The question is, will you?
