The different versions before Luna Rossa Black
Luna Rossa Black is far from being a first olfactory version of this catamaran. It all started with the preparation of Luna Rossa, a woody and fresh juice made from lavender. Then, in 2013, Luna Rossa Extrême amplified its spicy side while warming it with labdanum and vanilla. In 2015, Luna Rossa Sport made lavender a more effervescent material, accompanying it with ginger and juniper berries. The 2016 Eau Sport is arguably the most energizing and fresh juice in this whole assortment. Finally, the last Luna Rossa Carbon of 2017 in turn expresses a more mineral freshness.
The new woody freshness of Luna Rossa Black
Luna Rossa Black is an amazing fragrance. Indeed, unlike all its elders, it does not contain any lavender flavor. It therefore breaks definitively with the tradition of Prada.

Finally, Luna Rossa Black evolves towards a virile and racy base, combining woody flavors and amber.

Luna Rossa Black is presented in the emblematic bottle of the entire collection, previously designed by Swiss designer Yves Béhar. It has nevertheless exchanged its metallic hue of the past for an entirely black and opaque lacquer. A matte base faces a more shimmering second level. The whole takes on an impeccable and infinitely elegant look.
