Sunshine in a bottle, Prada Infusion d’Ylang Eau de Parfum is a 2022 addition to the adored Les Infusions line-up. The solar fragrance is centered around the yellow flower of ylang-ylang, which is rich and slightly sweet, enhanced by bright and natural notes throughout the fragrance. But it’s not just a stunning signature in its own right; Prada’s unisex fragrance is also equally beautiful when layered with other fragrances to add a sunny spin to any scent – masculine or feminine.
Read on to find out all about the fragrance that made me realise just how enticing ylang-ylang can be…
This Fragrance Smells Like…
The vibrant yellow colour of ylang-ylang reflects its aroma perfectly: ylang is both bright and sweet, and it often has a slightly custardy, banana-like tone to it.
Here, Prada enhances their sun-drenched ylang-ylang note with bergamot, which offers a bright fresh feel that makes the initial spritz fizzle out of the bottle. Spiced cardamom brings out the rich floral side of ylang-ylang note before it is deepened by the addition of sandalwood that adds a growing warmth as the fragrance settles on your skin.
The yellow floral ylang-ylang may look delicate, but here, it’s a powerful core scent that’s made a touch spicy and woody as it wears.
What’s The Story Behind This Scent?
The d’Ylang edition of the Prada Les Infusions line celebrates the luxurious yellow flower ylang-ylang in a way that is classic but forward-thinking. The woody and spicy additions are unconventional, just like Prada, and designed to make the scent unisex for all to enjoy.
You Will Love This If…
If you love yellow florals and wish you could add a touch of sunniness to any scent, Prada Infusion d’Ylang is an incredible layering addition to your fragrance collection. The sunny heart and deeper woods make the rich scent universally appealing when worn alone, or a playful deep addition to a scent needs a little oomph.

d’Ylang Eau de Parfum mimics the feeling of walking past rows of ylang-ylang bushes as the sun sets.
Is Prada Infusion d’Ylang Unisex?
Despite its floral heart, d’Ylang is unisex, thanks to the additions of spice and wood. The idea of layering the Les Infusions scent also allows you to create your own fragrance, and this can be more traditionally masculine or feminine depending on your personal preference – d’Ylang is neutral.
What’s The Longevity Like?
When worn alone, the bright scent is long-lasting on the skin, lingering for over six hours when I put it to the test. When layered, Prada Infusion d’Ylang adds a sunny feel and rich depth for a solid eight hours, helping to add intensity and increase the longevity of other scents.
What’s Special About The Bottle?
Modern and classic, the luxurious weighted glass bottle is adorned with stunning Prada touches. The lemon-yellow cap is made from saffiano leather, like many of Prada’s handbags; adorned with silver metal plates, the design is finished with the classic Prada logo.
