Flowers, flowers everywhere. Well, we wish there were. But since its wintertime and we can’t quite access the floral garden we’re dreaming of, we’re spritzing a little of Prada’s Paradoxe on instead.
Crafted by renowned perfumers Nadège Le Garlantezec, Antoine Maisondieu and Shyamala Maisondieu, the eau opens with fresh and sweet neroli buds to conjure images of blooming flowers and never-ending hope. Warm amber eases its way into the mix offering a cozy and happy vibe, while a new and revolutionary musk molecule provides the scent with an intimate expression. The overall effect is like a delectable breeze wafting of pretty petals, yellow sunshine and the luxury of time.
Luxury is, of course, at the forefront of this spectacular fragrance. It’s what fashion house Prada is built on. Founded in Italy in 1913 by Mario Prada, the couture brand has evolved from its leather goods roots into one of the most well recognized and coveted women’s and menswear designer labels, complete with a line-up of perfumes that look as fantastic as they smell. Paradoxe is no exception. Its inverted, triangular-shaped glass flacon with its pink, white and black packaging, is not only worthy of its red-carpet status it’s the perfect bouquet to spritz daily too. So we are.
Prada Paradoxe EDP, $139 for 50 ml and $192 for 90 ml, available at Hudson’s Bay.
