The Prada Les Infusions fragrance collection began in 2007 with Infusion d’Iris edition, with the fragrances of this collection being launched as limited editions. In 2015, Prada returns this collection as permanent. It presents six fragrances: the re-launched Infusion d’Iris, Infusion de Fleur d’Oranger from 2009 and Infusion de Vetiver from 2010, and three new editions Infusion d’Iris Cedre, Infusion d’Amande and Infusion d’Oeillet.
Prada describes the scents as “resisting feminine and masculine stereotypes and looking beyond current perfume trends, Les Infusions de Prada are the culmination of a reverence for the past, an understanding of our place in the present and the forward looking point of view of Prada.”
Perfumer Daniela (Roche) Andrier collaborated with Miuccia Prada to create this collection of six elegant and sophisticated unisex fragrances. Each fragrance is an interpretation of natural ingredients and the contrast between traditionalism and modernity. “Gender-based products are very cliché-oriented,” said Daniela Andrier of Givaudan.
