Prada Prada L'Homme Intense for Men - Review

Prada l'homme intense 1
My brother is a very impulsive person. He can be annoying at times, but we still love him all the same. One such show of his impulsiveness happened when he called me in the middle of the night to tell me he had found a great perfume. He was on a business trip in Milan, Italy, where he came across a newly released fragrance by Prada called the “L’Homme Intense.” Disregarding the difference in our time zones, he had called me up to tell me he had parcelled a bottle of the fragrance to me. The Italian fashion house Prada was founded way back in 1913 by brothers Mario Prada and Martino Prada. What...

My best friend’s return from Florence gave her a great reason to come over and tell me all about her trip to the famous Italian city. She kept lamenting about was how she lost one of her luggage on her return to the States.

I vividly recall the first time I was introduced to the fragrance. It was 1990 – one of the most emotional years of my life. With emotions running at an all-time high, we were on our tour of a lifetime. It was supposed to be our final hoorah before we part ways. We grew up in the same neighbourhood and went to the same daycare facility. We even went to the same school and college.

I enjoy having men woo me. Despite my redhead and green eyes, which always get me a lot of attention, I also use fragrances to attract the men’s attention. Call me an attention seeker if you like, but that is precisely who I am. I do not regret my choices, and I am definitely not ashamed of them. I have been an avid user of perfumes since I was very young. My first fragrance and all the necessary lessons were given to me by my dear mother.

Needing a change in scenario, I had packed my notebooks and textbooks up, got out of my dorm room, and headed off to a café near my university campus. I had been sitting there for about an hour and a half when she came in. A blonde girl donning a red crop top, a pair of whitewashed skinny jeans walked past my table when I got a whiff of her enticing fragrance. Dear Lord did it smell incredible!
