Carnation Infusion when Prada Infusions become a collection
Until 2015 however, enjoying the Infusions was only a reserved pleasure, with the collection of Ephemeral Infusions these scented elixirs are, finally, accessible to all! To open the ball to these celebrations, the same year Infusion d’Œillet and Infusion d’Amande were added to this precious collection, switching between classic perfumery and absolute modernity.
Carnation Infusion or Prada’s unconditional love for retro -modern perfumes …
Since Prada’s first steps in the composition of Infusions, the attractions of the hostess Miuccia Prada, like those of the formidable nose Daniela Andrier who accompanies her, lie in the art of beauty. The art of beauty would be, for Prada, to offer a perfume of excellence sculpted around raw materials of choice by exhibiting sources of inspiration from ancient perfumery mixed with original and modern influences . A perfume which would be the quintessence of Prada style in short.
So Stefano Cantino, Prada communications director says: “She loves [Miuccia Prada] old perfumes, one of her favorite shops in Milan is Mazzolari (the oldest perfume store in the city, Editor’s note). Les Infusions is a perfect illustration of his idea that “the future lies in our past”. In this, they certainly represent the most consistent fragrance project with the brand identity. “
With Infusion d’Œillet and its brilliant reinterpretation of the fetish flower of a little too forgotten perfumery, Daniela Andrier and Miuccia Prada persist in the mixture of eras. Indeed, the carnation was for decades a flower ( recreated from a mixture between note of rose and note of clove) particularly used for the elaboration of great perfumes such as Blue Hour, Après l’Ondée or more recently l’Air du Temps or Opium.
Then the carnation was lost over the years among the crowds of fruity or gourmet perfumes. Carnation Infusion reinvents it again by making it deliciously modern and with resolutely contemporary contrasting messages.
