I first saw a review of this before purchasing. I hardly never pay full retail for a cologne, but I thought I'd splurge a little and picked it up at my local Ulta since it was in stock. At first I wasn't too impressed. Smells like a more well rounded Dior Sauvage. I must of had olfactory fatigue, because I could't smell it on myself after awhile. 3 sprays (one to each side of neck, one on the top of my head in my hair), but here wearing it the last few days. I've gotten lot's of compliments and some good reactions from the ladies. Even the woman with a sensitive nose in my office said that it smelled very good and she's been straight up with other scents she didn't like. The scent bubble is Gold. It's not overpowering. Lasted a little over 6 hours on my skin. It's a crowd pleaser. Pick it up or at least tell your girl to smell it. I'm sure you'll be taking it home with you. I don't ever post of reviews, but I'm just trying to help and share my experience with those that may need it.
This review is for a 0.04 oz / 1.2 ml atomizer.
#Fragrance I am sniffing right now |
Prada Luna Rossa Carbon EDT | 4/10
The OG Luna Rossa, a citrus aromatic, was launched in 2012 with the Carbon birth in 2017 from the same nose, Daniela (Roche) Andrier. Mrs. Prada has created their juices since 2003 and, per my research has been credited since 1995, with lo La Perla from the house of La Perla.
Carbon, a self-stated modern Fougere, "fern-like" in French, contains "energetic notes of lavender, green bergamot from Italy, radiant woody notes of patchouli and the dry amber of ambroxan."
Carbon is tall, lean, with a swimmer's build and dark chestnut hair. He emerges from the water as you sit in your beach chair, walking towards you with intent and want. He grabs your hand and leads you to the nearby beach bungalow for a secret kiss away from others' eyes. This juice delivers a punch of lavender floating in a bowl of citrus water. The scents are being filtered through a wall of sheer lavender as it fades to the back and allows the peppery notes to dance on lavender leaves.
After your kiss, Carbon ushers you into an antique Alfa Romeo Giulia 1.6 spider and you drive along the Gulf of Salerno; the Tyrrhenian Sea in the air, and the sun warming your flesh. This juice has an earthiness on my skin, but I contribute that to patchouli more than the stated coal and soil tincture, and that is a letdown. As I told my friend @trillnoel on a live the other night, I adore soil notes in a fragrance, so Carbon's kiss was a disappointment. At this moment I am enjoying the Giulia more than him.
I do enjoy this fragrance and always see the best in the juice and as I sit here writing, I need another spray to enjoy the veiled lavender ride it took me on initially. Carbon is fleeting. He is married and just in Italy for business. Hoping for a tryst with a beautiful creature such as yourself.
I do not complain about longevity of fragrances, spray more, but I am let down by Carbon as he shows me what can manifest beyond the sunset coast but leaves me with the dinner ticket after our short encounter.

Ok, I bought this to keep it on my desk at work. This is a soapy, clean, easy to wear, very versatile. Doesn't project too much but is a safe choice. Is versatile, you can use it pretty much all year long Projection 6/10 Longevity 7/10

I love lavender and bergamot so I wasn't surprised that I liked this fragrance but I was surprised at how much I was enjoying the woody notes from the patchouli and amber. I don't usually gravitate towards any fragrances with those two scents but I feel like their addition added a warmth that makes this an appropriate winter fragrance. My fiancé was also surprised that he liked it as much as he did. We both tend to prefer clean, fresh scents (some fruity florals for me) so this was a welcome change.
This fragrance does remind me of other colognes that are currently available. Because this is a eau de toilette rather than a parfum, the longevity is not as long as a it is with a parfum, it smells strong at first spray but settles nicely and lasts around 6-8 hrs. We both prefer parfum over toilette sprays but the scent and the sillage justify the purchase, especially if you don't already own something similar. If you are a fan of the scent notes, are looking for a warmer fragrance for the winter, or simply looking for something outside of your comfort zone, try this fragrance.
We didn't receive an actual bottle as we received a sample sized tester so I can't compliment on the actual bottle but it looks nice.

I enjoyed this sample of Luna Rossa. It has a woodsy scent that lasts for most of the day. I received a small sample, which can be stronger than the fragrance itself, but I think it would be just as nice slightly diluted.
juveriyaa from undisclosed
The product was used by my friend who noted that it was strong, but well lasting throughout the day. The scent in my opinion is solid and bold, which will definitely serve confidence. Recommend for those who want a strong, powering scent. Complimentary sample received.

I received a sample of this fragrance courtesy of influenster and Prada for the purpose of a review. This scent is absolutely divine. The woody and slightly floral notes provide an excellent blend and balanced fragrance. My husband enjoyed it so much, I purchased a full size bottle for him. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone looking for a new cologne.
calliemarie4 from undisclosed
This cologne had a very strong scent. It smelt good but I don't think it's an everyday type of cologne. A little of this scent goes a long way and the scent lasted the whole day.
norac31 from undisclosed
My husband and I found this to be rather strong. A little goes a long way. Once he wore it for a bit the fragrance grew on us. We decided we would enjoy this fragrance when we have an event to attend, but he doesn't want to wear and smell it everyday.

I'm a lowkey guy, and this aroma was just a little strong for my personality. At this price I'd look elsewhere for something I love.
dariusp1 from undisclosed
Probably one of the best Prada fragrances and I think the price on it is good also, definitely would recommend very long lasting.
sureshs from undisclosed
Thank you influenster for the opportunity to try this product. I usually love prada and this one is so far one of my favourite and smell is awesome. great job

I was sent a sample with only .05 oz, not any of the options listed. It is incredibly musky, and very masculine. I was asked to share it with my male partner, who happens to work in fragrance. This is by far not his choice of scent, I like it much more than he does, I love musky scents for men. I do feel that the other notes are really hard to decipher because the musk is so strong. Honestly it kind of reminds us both of an axe scent, which means it's not really worth the cost.

I can't share any thoughts on the bottle design because I was sent a small sample vial, but it seems nice enough in the pictures. I think the cologne is a bit heavy and very earthy for my tastes. This is definitely a fragrance my dad would have enjoyed. The notes of lavender and ￼ patchouli really weighed the scent down for me. I think this would be a very appropriate nighttime scent if you're going out to the bar or club. Overall, this isn't my favorite fragrance experience, but this will definitely serve someone who loves strong earthy and heavy masculine scents. ￼

I love the smell of this perfume. I'm sad because it was a sample sizebut overall, it was a very pleasant smell overall, and this is for men, but I love it so much that I had to buy one full size for my husband. which he enjoyed it to.
dl0p3z541 from undisclosed
My personal favorite scent of the perfume was the notes of Bergamot, Lavender, Patchouli? Even though it's not long lasting the smell does linger as it fades from a stronger scent.
Thank for Influenster for sending this as a complimentary item.

This review is for the sample size, but it wouldn't give me that option. This is an alright spray. It didn't last long at all, and it was mediocre with its scent. Perhaps I couldn't get a good enough trial (I got about 3 applications out of my bottle). I can't even describe how it smelled — it was so faint. I would try this out if I was given to me, but I don't think I would go and buy it.
christopheragonzalez from undisclosed
The smell was not as strong so putting on a little extra doesn't hurt. But that being said the soft citrus ocean scent is very nice and lasts about 4ish hours. I found myself wearing is often and would recommend it.
mannytx from undisclosed
I really enjoyed testing this cologne. It's scent was nice and sweet. Excellent scent for wear in cooler weather or on a night out. I would recommend buying it.
katherineb104 from undisclosed
This is a nice fresh scent for men. Non-offensive and my husband really like it. Silage could be better but was OK for an EDT. Comparable to Chanel Bleu, Dior Sauvage, or Bulgari Aqua. Presentation was nice for a designer fragrance. Would recommend.
zangoochi from undisclosed
Although forced to select the variety, I only received a tester which is not an option in the list. Due to this, I cannot review based on the packaging or bottle. However, I was not a big fan of the scent. Some may enjoy the smell of very feminine undertones, however, I did not enjoy the aroma and had family comment that it was a bit over powering. Again, just my opinion.
paulo3 from undisclosed
Subtle fragrance that lingers throughout the day. Earthy with mineral and mossy tones that feel like they return in subtle waves through the day, long after you've applied it. Understated strength that feels warm and woodsy.
armaniibankz from undisclosed
Smells so good for men. Im not sure why they sent me a complimentary men's cologne. But it smells like a great men scent. I would recommend for the males
sarab345 from undisclosed
I found this fragrance to be a clean nearly unisex fragrance. It smells a bit like crisp linen and ceder or a clean classic womans fragrance that hugged a man a bit longer than is just cordial.
I was only given a small sample vial so I couldnt test the actual wearability because the vial snapped when trying to spritz.
pinkglitterygoth from undisclosed
A fairly nice warm scent for males. I also think it's fairly nice for ladies who like a little bit different of a scent profile! Very flattering scent, but sadly it's not a terribly long lasting scent once the top notes fade away it's pretty much gone. I also was so disappointed to only get a little sample size to try, since that's really only enough for like one or two uses, not enough for a solid review in my opinion.
choyle11 from undisclosed
I liked the smell, but wasn't overly impressed. Would've liked it to be a little less overpowering. I liked the bottle but I really enjoyed other colognes much better.
