Do you want to know what the best Prada colognes for men are in 2022?

If so, you’re in the right place.

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

And 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.

And in case you’re wondering:

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. Anyway…

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

Let’s break this one down…

Clean & Refreshing

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

Now, as it settles… the citrus fades and the lavender tones down. And then some spearmint joined with a herbal tinge 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. Resulting in a LOT of those… “you smell nice!” type compliments. 🙂

And the beautiful part:

Super Versatile

Luna Rossa is super versatile. As it suits all ages, and works great all year round (shines in 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, which 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. 🙂

And as this dries down on your skin, some saffron, myrrh and vanilla creep in, which give it 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.)

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 closer 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

Because 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 beautiful 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


Dark & Sophisticated

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, this Intense version is more suited for cold weather/night-time use (and is currently also a top pick on our best fall/winter colognes list).

Let’s break it down…

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.

And 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.

***Update***

Apparently, this is sadly being discontinued (why oh why???)… So grab it while you still can!

#3 Prada Luna Rossa Black


Dark, Warm, Sweet & Seductive

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 nice clean musky undertone.

Warm & Inviting

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

Ain’t complaining. 🙂

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

This is 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.

Two thumbs up!

#2 Prada Luna Rossa Carbon


A Fresh Spicy-Sweet Scent

I’ll be straight with you…

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

So…

If you already own Dior Sauvage, then 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 which 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. This is joined with a hint of a slightly earthy vibe which sits in the background.

The end result:

You’re 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 – for good reason!

Let’s take a sniff… 🙂

Bright, Fresh & Clean

Prada L’Homme opens up with a blast of neroli mixed with some iris and other floral notes – which 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 develops a nice woody undertone.

It smells soft, clean, smooth, and luxurious. And with its 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, which is more suited for the sharply-dressed metrosexual 20-up crowd.

The good news?

Prada L’Homme can be worn all year (but is 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. Because…

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.
