Effortlessly wearable and with an unmistakable aura of luxury, Prada offers the ultimate adventure for the senses. 

We thought this would be a great opportunity to take you behind the scenes of one of Prada’s most acclaimed perfumes, Prada Luna Rossa Carbon.

From the runaway success of L’Homme Prada to the cult following of Prada Candy, the Prada brand has been synonymous with luxury since the establishment of their fashion house in 1913. 

From beginnings rooted firmly in women’s fashion, Prada has expanded into designer footwear, leather bags, art, architecture and of course, perfume.

Prada Luna Rossa, When Substance Matters 

The official fragrance of the America’s Cup, Prada Luna Rossa was inspired by CEO Patrizio Bertelli’s love of sailing. In fact, so passionate about sailing is Mr Bertelli that in 1997 ‘Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli Team’ entered the race for the America’s Cup and in 2017 it was announced that Prada will be the hosting sponsor of the 2021 America’s Cup event held in New Zealand. 

Unsurprisingly, the classic Prada Luna Rossa fragrance is inspired by all things nautical, from sailing boats to marine flora. Since the release of the first Prada Luna Rossa fragrance in 2012, there have been a handful of further interpretations of the scent, each with a different 

twist. While each of the award-winning Prada Luna Rossa range is unique, they are all connected by their fresh, organic, sensual subtlety.
