Prada Olfactories had sorta slipped past me. Colognoisseur did a review on them recently, and then I had to rethink trying them. So far I’ve tried two, and I’m pretty stuck on Prada Olfactories Nue Au Soleil.
It is a soaring orange blossom that is perfect for spring and for those of you planning a wedding, perfection for that special day. It starts off sparkling with a really rich undercurrent. It doesn’t lean to a sweet orange blossom, just one infused with sunlight. There’s this almost lift to that rich pungent, warm orange blossom that keeps it from being too heavy.
If you love orange blossom, it’s one you should definitely try.
This perfume would be perfect for a wedding perfume, but it’s also great for every day wear. It’s been on my arm for the last week or so. It’s quickly hit the top of my rather lengthy orange blossom perfume list. Here’s that post for reference if you stumble in here searching for orange blossom perfume.
Right now I believe Prada Olfactories Nue au Soleil and the others are only at Prada boutiques (hidden in the back and they look at you like you have four heads when you ask for them) and at Saks! Yeah, Saks has them on their website. $300’ish for 100 mls, so not the priciest scents out there, but not budget friendly either.

So I’ll give away sample sets of Prada Olfactories Nue Au soleil and Double Dare (didn’t talk about that one this post, haven’t had time to really get into it) to three commenters drawn at random.
Update on the master bath renovation. So far, so good! he comes over, he works his butt off, he’s doing all the electrical and plumbing so I’m not waiting for those things to be done. The new windows are in, the sheet rock and whatever that board is for wet areas like showers tomorrow. So it’s time for me to pick out tile this week. My gorgeous, amazing tub is ordered and should be here in a week or two. Turns out I’m gonna need a crane to get it up to the second floor of my house. Huh. Old house, narrow hallways and stairways, it won’t come up through the interior, so they must have a crane to boom it from the alley to my deck. Then in through the sliding glass doors and where it belongs under my new windows. I’ve never hired a crane before, so, well, this is new! But with any luck, I should have my bathroom all done in two weeks. This is getting pretty exciting, let me tell you!
