The House of Prada is known for an elegant take on utility and function. The Milan brand, which launched in 1913 with small leather goods, was revolutionized in 1978 by Miuccia Prada who took the reins from her grandfather and expanded the house to an iconic fashion brand that includes fragrance.
Prada's first perfume, Prada Amber, hit shelves in 2004, which caused quite a stir (because at the time, no one was really doing anything with amber notes). Next up for the brand was Prada Candy, a gourmand blend of vanilla, caramel, and musks. The scent was a global hit, and inspired a Candy collection (we rank our faves below) and established Prada as a player in the perfume game. The fashion house has been formulating iconic scents ever since. Here, we rank our top 12 Prada fragrances.
Like its moniker suggests, this fragrance is utterly sweet, blending notes of caramel and honey with a warm and spicy profile. But it's the strong scent of vanilla that makes this a fan favorite and gives Prada Candy lots of points in the longevity department.
Prada Candy Gloss
Cherry, peach, and musk add dimension to Prada Candy Gloss, making this a gourmand fragrance sans vanilla. Fans remark that the dry down of this scent is superior and that it's a fresh scent for warmer months.
Spritz perfume on your pulse points—when you move, the fragrance will intensify and waft up around you.
A statement perfume, Prada Amber is the OG of fragrance for the Italian fashion house. Amber is the top note of this profile, where light and dark musks mix with bitter orange, patchouli, tonka bean, and sandalwood oil. It's been likened to a former flame you gravitate towards when you want to evoke nostalgia.
Les Infusions Rose
Top notes of rose define the delicate and light profile of this scent. A base of neroli blend with subtle accents of mandarin to add complexity in Prada Les Infusions Rose. Fans love how this rose fragrance remains breezy, keeping it fresh and modern.
Les Infusions Mandarine
Essence of vert de mandarine makes Les Infusions Mandarine an undeniable citrus. The profile picks up warmth with a blend of bitter orange blossom and warm neroli. Fans remark how a bit of spice offers a refreshing take on the citrus scent trend.
