Prada recently launched a new perfume called Prada Paradoxe Eau de Parfum and I think it will be one of the hottest fragrance launches of 2022. What makes this new perfume so unique is that the bottle is shaped like the iconic triangular Prada logo, so it tilts to the side when sitting on your vanity. It’s also better for the environment since the refillable bottle comes in a recycled box and requires less glass, plastic and other materials to produce. I usually don’t get that excited over refillable perfume bottles but Prada Paradoxe is the exception. It’s so aesthetically pleasing to look at, I know we will be seeing this bottle all over our Instagram and Pinterest feeds for the foreseeable future.
The fragrance itself is a warm floral with key notes of neroli bud, white amber and white musk. Right away, I pick up a hint of bubblegum from the jasmine. It’s very clean and slightly sweet but very well balanced and not cloying. Prada Paradoxe reminds me a little bit of Tom Ford Soleil Brulant but more feminine. I think it can be worn year round as an everyday fragrance because it’s more of a cool and casual scent, very chic. This is going to be an amazing signature scent for the fashionistas who love a logo!
Will Paradoxe be the hottest fragrance launch of the year? That is yet to be seen but I imagine it will be a contender in the designer category. If you love Giorgio Armani My way, Mugler Alien or Valentino Born in Roma you should definitely try to get your hands on a sample. If you’ve tried this fragrance, be sure to share your thoughts with me in the comments because I would love to hear your opinion!
