Want to know what are the best Prada colognes for men are in 2021?

If so, you’re in the right place.

Because we’ve just finished testing their entire men’s line-up.

To be clear:

We didn’t just test out these colognes for 30 minutes and call it a day.

In fact, we spent weeks evaluating every single men’s Prada fragrance they offer, including:

  • How long they last
  • What season/occasion to wear them
  • How good they smell 🙂
  • And more

So if you’re looking for a new Prada cologne, this list is for you.

In a hurry?

Our Top 3 Picks:

#7 Prada Luna Rossa


Soapy Clean Minty Freshness

This is a sophisticated safe clean fresh scent.

By the way:

Luna Rossa is Italian and translates to “Red Moon”, which is the name of Prada’s sailing team (and boat), that participate in the America’s Cup competition.

The Luna Rossa line-up are created by award winning master perfumer Daniela Andrier.

Let’s beak it down…

Clean & Refreshing

Luna Rossa opens with a HUGE blast of clean soapy lavender mixed with a refreshing splash of bitter orange citrus.

Bam!

Now, as it settles the citrus fades and the lavender tones down. Some spearmint joined with a herbal tinge then creep in and morph with the lavender.

The result:

Cool Minty Freshness

A sophisticated, slightly-powdery soapy scent with some cool minty freshness.

It smells clean, bright and uplifting. Garners you a LOT of those… “you smell nice!” type compliments. 🙂

The beautiful part:

Super Versatile

Luna Rossa is super versatile. Suits all ages and works great all year round (best for spring/summer) as a daily workhorse.

In fact, it’s mild mannerisms make it perfect for the office/work. But, it works equally well for casual use, dressed up, special occasions, the gym, you name it…

Now, to be clear:

If you’re looking for a projection monster, this is NOT it. Luna Rossa is an EDT and projects just under arm’s length for the first few hours.

It then sits politely close to the skin, lasting about 4 – 8 plus hours.

Great. 🙂

#6 Prada Amber Pour Homme


A Classy, Clean Soapy Scent

Now:

Prada Amber Pour Homme has a ton of listed fragrance notes, that have been masterfully blended to create a luxuriously clean soapy scent with a sweet spicy kick.

I will make is super easy for you:

Imagine this…

Luxury Soapyness

A light purple colored luxury bar of soap, mixed with a hint of powdery spicy sweetness.

In a nutshell, that’s Prada Amber Pour Homme. And it smells GREAT. 🙂

As it dries down on your skin some saffron, myrrh and vanilla creep in and add a nice warm sweet leathery undertone.

Now, I should point something out:

Elegant

This is not a super masculine type of cologne. Prada Amber Pour Homme is an elegant scent, more suited for a mature 25-up sharply dressed metrosexual man.

The good news…

Any Occasion

This is super versatile and can be worn all year (spray lightly in summer) for just about any occasion (GREAT for business/office/interviews, etc).

After all, it’s never a bad time to smell clean and fresh, right? 🙂

Prada Amber Pour Homme is an EDT and projects about an arm’s length for the first few hours. It then becomes more subtle and sits close to the skin. Lasts about 5 – 8 plus hours.

Now, a quick word of warning:

Don’t go crazy with the sprayer. This is a “less is more” type of scent.

1 – 3 sprays MAX… and you’re set. 🙂

#5 Prada Luna Rossa Sport


A Clean Spicy Sweet Soapy Scent

Now, I should point something out:

The name “sport” is actually quite misleading.

Why?

Well… most “sport” versions of a fragrance are usually a lighter, citrusy aquatic version of the original scent.

Not this one.

This is a spicy, sweeter (and better smelling 🙂) version of the original Prada Luna Rossa.

Let’s take a look…

Fresh, Clean & Spicy Sweet

Luna Rossa Sport opens fresh, clean and spicy sweet with a blast of lavender mixed with a slightly powdery vanilla – tonka bean combo.

By the way, when you first spray it, you might pick up on some slight similarities to another fragrance called Le Male, by Jean Paul Gaultier (except Luna Rossa Sport is more refined, smoother, and not as loud).

So…

If you like(d) that fragrance… you are going to LOVE Luna Rossa Sport. That said, as it dries down it takes its own direction…

Pinch of Fresh Ginger

Now, as it dries down it becomes slightly more sweet (but not overly sweet) and is joined with a pinch of fresh spicy ginger and juniper berries.

The result?

A beautiful, slightly powdery, clean spicy sweet soapy scent.

It’s smooth, slightly warm and alluringly sweet. HUGE compliment getter.

The best part:

Any Occasion… Anywhere… Anytime

This is super versatile. All ages (20-up), any occasion, anytime, anywhere (work/office, casual, dates, nights out, clubbing, you name it…).

That said, I wouldn’t recommend wearing it for sports or when it’s super-hot outside, as it will become overly sweet.

Now, to be clear:

Subtle

This is a fragrance that doesn’t scream out for attention… So if you’re looking for a projection monster, this is NOT it.

Luna Rossa Sport is an EDT and projects about an arm’s length for the first 1 – 2 hours.

It then sits closer to the skin (making it a GREAT choice for work/office) and lasts around 5 – 8 plus hours.

Bottom line:

If you’re looking for a nice safe crowd-pleasing fragrance to wear in any season, for almost any situation…

Get this.

#4 Prada L'Homme Intense


A Dark Sophisticated Clean Scent

Here’s the deal:

Prada L’Homme Intense is a darker, more masculine version of our number 1 top pick, Prada L’Homme (which is more suited for daytime/warmer weather use).

On the other hand, Prada L’Homme Intense is more suited for cold weather/night-time use (and is currently a top pick on our best fall/winter colognes list).

Let’s break it down…

Clean Fresh Soapy Iris

Prada L’Homme Intense opens with a blast of clean fresh soapy iris mixed with a leathery vibe and a pinch of tonka bean sweetness.

Now, as it dries down on your skin it gets darker, richer and smoother as the patchouli and woods creep in.

The end result:

A luxurious dark rich leathery and slightly sweet powdery, clean soapy scent.

Nice. 🙂

Dressed Up

Prada L’Homme Intense is more suited for the mature 25-up metrosexual crowd, for dressed up/formal occasions in the cooler weather: fall/winter (and cool spring nights).

Special occasions, date nights, office, nights out, etc…

Now, a quick word of warning:

Don’t go crazy with the trigger and avoid wearing in the high summer heat, as it will get cloying (better to use Prada L’Homme in the spring/summer).

Now:

Prada L’Homme Intense is an EDP and projects nicely (about an arm’s length) for the first few hours. It then sits close to the skin, lasting about 6 – 8 plus hours.

#3 Prada Luna Rossa Black


A Dark Warm Sweet Seductive Scent

Straight off the bat…

Luna Rossa Black opens with a blast of warm sweet semi-powdery tonka bean and amber, mixed with a pinch of freshness (bergamot citrus).

As it settles the citrus fades and the smooth warm powdery sweetness is joined with a hint of a green herbal note and a clean musky undertone.

Warm & Inviting

It smells dark, smooth, sweet (but not overly sweet), warm and inviting.

Nice. 🙂

Luna Rossa Black is more suited for the mature 25-up and best worn in cooler weather: fall/winter (and cool spring nights).

More of a dressy night time scent (but smells GREAT anytime): date nights, special occasions, nights out, clubbing, casual, work/office.

Now:

Gorgeous Scent Trail

Luna Rossa Black is an EDP and doesn’t scream out for attention. It projects around an arm’s length for the first few hours (leaving a gorgeous scent trail).

It then sits closer to the skin, creating a nice scent cloud around you which draws people in (making it a great date night scent) and lasts around 6 – 8 plus hours.

Great.

#2 Prada Luna Rossa Carbon


A Fresh Spicy Peppery Sweet Scent

I’ll be straight with you…

When you first spray Luna Rossa Carbon, it smells similar to the fragrance Dior Sauvage (except Luna Rossa Carbon is smoother, sweeter and not as loud).

So…

If you already own Dior Sauvage, maybe this is a redundant scent for you.

That said, when Luna Rossa Carbon dries down on your skin it takes its own direction…

It’s less spicy, slightly fresher, smoother, sweeter and more refined (oh, and it’s more affordable 🙂).

Let’s take a closer look…

Super Refreshing

Luna Rossa Carbon opens up super refreshing with a blast of bergamot citrus mixed with a pinch of spicy pepper and a dose of ambroxan (an aroma molecule that gives it a nice semi-sweet metallic vibe).

Bam!

Now, as it settles the citrus fades and the spiciness is smoothed out with some lavender sweetness, joined with a hint of a slightly earthy vibe that sits in the background.

The end result:

Your left with a nice clean spicy fresh semi-sweet scent. And it smells GREAT.

The best part?

All Seasons. All Occasions.

This is super versatile: All ages (20-up), all seasons and all occasions (days/nights). Casual, dates, nights out, special occasions, work/office, interviews, clubbing, you name it…

HUGE compliment getter (‘nough said 🙂).

Luna Rossa Carbon is an EDT and projects about an arm’s length for the first few hours. It then sits close to the skin, creating a nice scent bubble around you. Lasts about 5 – 8 plus hours.

Bottom line:

A safe mass appealing scent, that you can wear all year round, for just about any occasion.

#1 Prada L'Homme


Luxurious Soapy Clean Freshness

This is a simple (but luxurious), clean fresh smelling scent.

By the way, this also made it onto our overall top 10 best men’s colognes list (and for good reason 🙂).

Let’s take a look…

Bright, Fresh & Clean

Prada L’Homme opens up with a blast of neroli mixed with some iris and other floral notes, to give you a bright fresh clean soapy vibe.

Nice.

Now, as it dries down it becomes slightly powdery and morphs with some warm amber sweetness with whispers of black pepper. It also has a nice woody undertone.

It smells soft, clean, smooth and luxurious. And with that slightly sweet undertone it garners some nice compliments.

Now, to be clear:

Modern & Sophisticated

This is not a super masculine cologne. This is a modern sophisticated scent, that is more suited for the sharply-dressed metrosexual 20-up crowd.

The best part?

Prada L’Homme can be worn all year (but more suited for spring/summer) for just about any situation when you want to smell fresh and clean (which should be always, right? 🙂)

Perfect for the Office

That said, where this scent truly shines is for formal office wear.

Now:

Prada L’Homme is an EDT and projects politely (within arm’s length) for the first few hours, then sits closer to the skin, lasting around 5 – 7 plus hours.

Bottom line:

Prada L’Homme is one of the BEST fresh clean daytime office scents on the market. Period.
