This February, Prada is expected to launch the final three fragrances in its ten-scent exclusive boutique collection. The first seven—Cuir Ambre, Fleur d'Oranger, Iris, Oeillet, Narcisso, Tubereuse and Violette—have been intermittently launched over the last three years and are made from pure (and pricey) perfume oils. They are all traditional scents that are sold in modestly packaged bottles for $150 each.
The three newbies are Opoponax (which I find terribly difficult to pronounce), Benjoin and Myhhre. I haven't tried them, but I'm thinking that since I love Prada's bags and shoes that I might really like this too. What do you think? For a more detailed description of the new fragrances,
- No.8 Opoponax contains notes of bergamot opoponax, cistus, santal and amber. This fragrance is supposedly very warm, sensual and refreshing.
- No.9 Benjoin comes from the bitter orange tree. It is also mixed with sweet t, vanilla and musk to make this the earthiest and heaviest scent of the bunch.
- No.10 Myrrhe is made from a citrus, bergamot, cedrat, lavender, myrrh and patchouli blend. Sounds to me like it could be pretty light, feminine and crisp.
