The Red Pipette Wears Prada


I love this perfume. It’s been two years since I purchased my first bottle and the love affair continues.

It suits me well for both winter and summer (well, at least British summer anyway 😉

Classy, grow-up scent but not overwhelming. Subtle but present.

Prada's "L'infusion d'Iris" Body Milk and Eau de Parfum

The combination of perfume with the body milk will extend the scent forever. I’ve tried this with other perfumes as well (Burberry’s). When it’s too hot out there or I’m travelling and not checking baggage I put a small amount of the Body Milk in a small pot from Muji (less than 100 ml of course) so that I can take it with me on my carry on bag.

I put it in my arms and my “decolletage” and the scent remains there for a loooooooooong time. I can’t help sniffing at my arms every once in a while when I do that just to check if I can still smell it (I hope no one  catches me sniffing myself! The shame!)

Also it’s a way of making your perfume last longer (basically you’re not using it!) while still smelling great.

And, of course, for a budget-conscious person like myself, the body milk is always about half-price compared to the perfume.

So if you want to try a new fragrance this summer but don’t want to spend that much money on it, try the body milk instead and see how it goes.

Which are your summer perfumes/fragrances?
