As the sun begins to shine and temperatures soar, it’s time to reach for the brighter feel-good fragrances in your collection. The best Prada perfumes for summer offer a kaleidoscope of fragrant flowers and fresh citrus notes to keep you smelling ultra-fresh and feminine.
Since 2004, Prada has created over 70 female and unisex fragrances, some being perfect for the summertime. Perfumes with rose, iris, jasmine or peony work the best in summer, especially if fused with some fresh fruits. I tend to avoid spices, resins and deep musks as they become too heavy in the heat.
Prada Perfumes For Summertime
We’ve selected 4 of the best Prada perfumes for summer; some are romantically floral, others more fresh and fruity, all are utterly feminine. Enjoy!
1. Les Infusions de Prada Rose Eau de Parfum
Les Infusions de Prada Rose Eau de Parfum takes you on a romantic stroll through a fragrant rose garden in summertime. This gem of a fragrance from Prada is simply stunning.
A beautiful opening combination of delicate Turkish and Bulgarian rose petals are cooled by a splash of zesty mandarin orange. Once settled, the galbanum note in the base eases in some sensual bitterness which I love.

2. Les Infusions de Prada Mandarine Eau de Parfum
Les Infusions de Prada Mandarine Eau de Parfum is a sparkling and vibrant spring and summer citrus fragrance that I enjoy wearing when I fancy a break from very flowery perfumes.
This refreshing fragrance begins with nose-tingling sweet mandarin and bitter orange that soon leads to a rich bitter-sweet orange blossom and fragrant neroli heart. Opoponax gives a discreet waft smokey/incense tone once fully settled.
