Prada Amber Pour Homme Intense fragrance set (2013) review

         This Father's day, I have the perfect gift tucked away for Mr. Lovey, thanks to Prada Parfums. Fragrance is a great way to add something fresh to his routine (plus, the effect is something I can enjoy as well). Prada is one of my personal favorite perfume lines, so I'm looking forward to sharing my review of Prada Amber Pour Homme Intense cologne and the newest Prada Amber Pour Homme Intense fragrance gift set with you today!

         Prada Amber Pour Homme Intense Eau de Parfum is a warm and smooth blend of Italian bergamot, Somalia myrrh, Indonesian patchouli, Madagascar vanilla. Prada Amber Pour Homme opens with the strong bipartite warmth of the prickly resin of myrrh alongside smooth amber tones. Patchouli adds a transparent clean smokiness which lends an incense-like illusion to the above combination. As the amber and myrrh soften, an even vanilla adds a delectable hint, while bergamot adds a crisp and fresh contrast. Over time the vanilla develops with tonka (your classic dessert combo), with a sweet little  strand of saffron stirred into the pot (which I love). In the next stage, we meet a gentle wood, root, and leather combination; the sandalwood, vetiver, and leather notes are softly blended as to not highlight any one component. Flowers in the form of a mid-tone geranium and and an uplifting orange blossom add just the right hint of delicacy and sophistication to an otherwise strong masculine scent. After its rich tale, Prada Amber Pour Homme Intense returns to its amber, myrrh, and vanilla base at drydown.

          The Prada Amber Pour Homme Intense fragrance set showcases the gorgeous cologne in three different forms : Eau de Parfum (3.4 fl.oz.), an After Shave Balm (3.4 fl.oz.), and Bath and Shower Gel (1.7 oz.). All four bottles are tall, rectangular, and elegantly slim. The Shower gel is shown above in blue, while the body lotion is the cream colored bottle seen below. I especially love the look of the Eau de Parfum, with it's dark glass plated with a metal --- upon which you can read Prada Amber Pour Homme's note list!

           The Prada Amber Pour Homme Intense fragrance gift set ($80 for $144 value) showcases a fragrance that should please both discerning noses and aesthetes! The masculine scent is elegant and well crafted, as is typical of Prada Parfums. I'm definitely looking forward to experiencing Prada Amber Pour Homme as it enters Mr. Lovey's fragrance wardrobe! Prada fragrance gift sets for Father's Day are now available at Macy's, Nordstrom, and other fine department stores.
