Lighter, sporty versions of classic fragrances tend to be aimed at men looking for a quick summer spritz rather than a lingering neck hugger. Prada’s first-ever sport fragrance is here to rock the boat.
Named after the brand’s two Team Luna Rossa yachts, currently competing in the 34th America’s Cup World Series, it’s the work of Prada’s go-to perfumer Daniela Andrier.
She’s cooked up a resilient blend of notes including lavender, orange, sage and spearmint: a move away from the recent deluge of marine-flavoured sport scents. Even Prada’s bottle says “sport” in a classy way, inspired as it is by modern sailboat design.
We reckon they’re onto a winner. Prada Luna Rossa eau de toilette, £62 for 100ml prada.com
