Among her essentials, Emmanuelle Alt lists Prada Infusion de Fleur d'Oranger as her favorite perfume. This refreshing fragrance was created by perfumer Daniela Andrier as part of the limited edition "Ephemeral Infusion" collection produced by Prada. In terms of composition, Infusion de Fleur d’Oranger is a delightful mélange of orange blossom, tuberose, jasmine, neroli, mandarin oil. What does this combination conjure? Many fragrance reviewers agree that the scent starts off lively, with the orange blossom and jasmine notes dominating. However, many also note that the fragrance smells the best at the very beginning, drying down to a nearly aldehydic ambience and losing the desirable orange blossom scent; of course each scent is unique on the individual, that is what makes perfume so intimate. One reviewer describes Infusion de Fleur d’Oranger as "a perfume for those who don’t like perfume" and perhaps this is why it is one of Emmanuelle's favorites. After all, she is far from a typical girly girl — she loves black, leather pants, and statement blazers — but her rock 'n' roll attitude does have a certain feminine quality to it. The cachet of the fragrance suits Emmanuelle perfectly, emphasizing her individual sense of style. Although this Prada scent was originally intended to be in stores for a mere four months, it seems many online retailers still sell the perfume so stock up while you can.
