Prada Infusion d’Iris Absolue ~ new perfume

Prada Infusion d'Iris Absolue

Prada has launched Infusion d'Iris Absolue, a new limited edition concentration of their popular Infusion d'Iris fragrance:

With notes of Madagascan vanilla and orange blossom, Infusion d’Iris Absolue is a luminous, oriental perfume of exquisite luxury. The glass bottle is reminiscent of a vintage perfume bottle; elegant, discreet and incredibly refined.

Additional notes include iris, tonka bean and benzoin.

Prada Infusion d'Iris Absolue is available now at Selfridges in the UK, in 100 ml Eau de Parfum Absolue, £80.

    Any word on how this compares to the original? I really like the idea of a stronger concentration – esp. for those of us with fragrance devouring skin….just as long as they don’t mess with the formula too much!

  2. thegoddessrena says:

    Any idea when this hits the United States? I like the original and this sounds right up my alley

  3. Uh oh… this may mean that my tax refund is going to shrink a bit before it even hits the bank account ;)

  4. CM says:

    Lemming! Id’I is one of my favorites, esp in warmer weather. This may be my winter version! Please post an update when this is available in the US.

      just thought exactly the same thing.:) i only hope they didn’t overdo it with vanilla etc, i wouldn’t want it to be too sweet…

    • Robin says:

      As soon as I see it here online, it will be in one of the daily online shopping posts.

    You know I’m Pradaholic, so I always keep up with news from Prada. I’ve heard about Infusion d’Iris Absolue about a month ago. Can’t wait to put my hands on it, because it sounds like another wonderful creation from Prada.
    I defintely must try it! And then put it on my to-buy list probably! I can’t pass indifferent by any Prada.

  6. poodle says:

    I hope this is a bit stronger than the original and maybe will last longer on me. If it’s an amped up version of the original, I will be thrilled.

    • PinoiPerfumista says:

      You and me both! :-)

  7. Marjorie Rose says:

    I know I say this every time it comes up (surprisingly often!), but it really irks me–things from Madagascar are “Malagasy” not “Madagascan.” Grr.

    *steps of mini-soap box*

    In other news, I will be interested to sniff then when it comes to town.

    • Marjorie Rose says:

      “off” my soap box, that is.

    • Emily says:

      Or it seems they could’ve averted the issue by saying “Madagascar vanilla” (which I do see a lot) — like “Virginia cedar” or “Grasse rose” or what have you, though I realize those are states/regions and not countries proper. Editing perfume ad copy must be a profoundly thankless job.

  8. Suzy Q says:

    OK, someone on the UK please to test it and report back–stat!

  9. Emily says:

    “The glass bottle is reminiscent of a vintage perfume bottle; elegant, discreet and incredibly refined.” Yes … and, more to the point, it also reminiscent of the standard Prada Infusion de Whatever bottle.

    • Merlin says:

      good point:)

      Such a pity its limited – it may never make its way to South Africa!

    • OperaFan says:

      Nearly LoL’d when I read that description about the bottle.

      • Emily says:

        I nearly snorted wine out my nose.

  10. Nile Goddess says:

    Ooooh looking forward to trying this one!

    The original Infusion D’Iris always feels a bit frosty, like fresh fragrant earth in the spring just after the snows have melted but before any flower had a chance to sprout.

    Was looking for a version that’s a bit warmer and with a hint of pistachio, like Omnia Green Jade, but IDI is so nicely blended and luxurious Omnia GJ can not compete.

    Maybe this is the one …

  11. Hamyish says:

    Nile Goddess, I completely agree with your description – original Iris is exactly like that, frosty and cool and fresh and a little earthy, but delicate. It sometimes makes me think of snowdrops, if snowdrops had a smell. I love it!

  12. eminere says:

    Gorgeous bottle.

  13. Omega says:

    Why say Madagascar vanilla? Just say vanilla, I agree! 60% of the world’s vanilla comes from Madagascar..stop trying to make it seem like a unique, rare’s vanilla!

  14. dolcesarah says:

    All vanilla is NOT created equal!!

  15. dolcesarah says:

    All vanilla is not the same!! There are three types and you can probably guess Type II is in this one. It’s not made with the best of ingridients. I have much better. But I do like the original, funny I don’t smell any vanilla at all.

  16. kngfrank says:

    I love the original but trying not to get too excited because if the orange blossom note is anything like Fleur d’Oranger, I will HATE it.

    • NOELEMAHC says:

      I totally agree!
