Runway: Prada Milano – Infusion D’Homme

When selecting a fragrance it is best to keep in mind “The Three P’s”: Personality; Purpose; and Passion.

Personality: A two-fold category wherein the individuality of both the ‘scented’ and ‘attracted’ must be considered. Namely, what type of person are you? And what type of person do you wish to attract?

Purpose: Knowing the type of person you wish to take notice, next consider, where you intend to meet them. Upon meeting them, what would you like to do with them?

Passion: This category is essential. Passion is everything! You know who you are, you know who you want, and now you have them… so how does it smell?

When it comes to fragrances I haven’t worn many. In high-school it was Polo Sport. In university it was Paris Hilton. Since entering the corporate world I’ve debated what to wear. Then I smelled Prada Milano Infusion D’Homme, and the debate ended. This is what cologne should be: classic; inviting; and natural. These are things I aspire to have: a classic look; an inviting appeal; and natural charisma.

It may be a bit trivial to view perfumes in such a way, but since we are discussing the senses I find it foolish to think otherwise. Scent like sight, and any other sense, tells a woman what she can expect. Reflecting upon the cologne’s Milanese roots I’m reminded of the cities other artistic features. In Milan resides the famous Brera Academy. In said academy there is a gallery known as Pinacoteca di Brera. Therein resides a painting by the legend Francesco Hayez. This painting is beautifully entitled “Il Bacio,” or “The Kiss”.

Passion is everything! This is how it smells.

    You said it perfectly ” This is what cologne should be: classic; inviting; and natural. These are things I aspire to have: a classic look; an inviting appeal; and natural charisma.”

    Being allergic to most colognes, I’ve been trying to find that one fragrance worthy of me suffering through a few sneezes and water eyes.

    Might just have to give this one a shot!

    to quote Kanye … “Praises due to the most high, Allah
    Praises due to the most fly, Prada”
