This Fragrance Smells Like…
Just how the sea breeze fills your lungs with an uplifting freshness, Ocean Eau de Toilette opens with an energising freshness that uplifts the senses before transitioning into a warm herbaceous aroma.
The sharp, citrus top notes of bergamot create an energising start that blends with an aromatic punch of pink pepper to awaken the mind; the spicy notes continue into the heart where a touch of sage is joined by a wash of powdery iris for a warm and earthy heart. The earthy backdrop of vetiver adds a sensual sophistication that is addictively moreish.
What’s The Story Behind This Scent?
Inspired by the Prada Luna Rossa Sailing team, the scent combines technology, strength and innovation to embody the modern adventurer. Just like the Luna Rossa Ocean wearer, master perfumers Anne Flipo and Carlos Benaim have pushed past their limits to better their craft with this Eau de Toilette; co-created across the Atlantic Ocean – 600km apart – this fragrance was formulated in real time between New York and Paris, using advancements in technology, which is exactly what this fragrance is about.
You Will Love This If…
The contrast of green freshness and warm spice would be ideal for anyone that loves the rugged outdoors. If you’re a fan of Prada aftershaves, specifically the Luna Rossa collection you’re bound to love this fragrance; the Eau de Toilette takes Luna Rossa Classic’s fresh tones and Luna Rossa Sport’s sensual heat for a light-weight, softness.

This Perfume Smells Similar To:
Luna Rossa Ocean reminds me of a handsomely rugged man walking along the boulevard, as the dark, turbulent water rumbles. The sharp fresh air drifts off the sea and fills the lungs for an energised feeling but a sense of warmth is brought forward by a familiar brown leather jacket.
What’s The Longevity Like?
Like most classic Eau de Toilettes, Luna Rossa Ocean lasts around two to three hours.
What’s Special About The Bottle?
The glass bottle that houses Ocean takes inspiration from technology, specifically the sleek, dynamic beauty of sailing boats; the deep blue bottle reflects the heavy waters of the Atlantic Sea. Prada have thought of everything with this fragrance; including a capless design ideal for the modern adrenaline seeker in a rush. Plus, the addition of the iconic red strip is instantly recognisable to any designer lover.
