A Vetiver for everybody ...I constantly bleat on about the Infusion series from Prada being 'too light' and 'too expensive' for what they are. I am happy to report that I find my critique incorrect, especially when it comes to Infusion de Vétiver!
I've always enjoyed a healthy dose of Vetiver in fragrances ... I find it uplifting. The beauty of this note is further enhanced here by the clever addition of two rather pungent spices ... in a completely non-pungent way. The Pepper and Ginger here serve basically to make the Vetiver in this 'fume sparkle, like so many dew drops in the morning sunshine clinging precariously to blades of grass. The Tarragon in this composition brings a simple, herbal quality to it, further enhancing the feeling of freshness. Infusion de Vétiver presents the nose with a superb soapiness and doesn't demand any attention in it's own right. Rather, it enhances and compliments ... perfect for hot weather! It radiates cool confidence.
Far from being a 'men only' fragrance this one falls into that 'never never land' of unisex creations. I personally feel that all fragrances should live in this world, not being one to connect gender to a bottle of perfume.
I like everything about this fragrance, from the funky packaging to the simple, elegant bottle which has a lovely heft and sits easily in the hand to spray.
