Name That Scent: Suri Cruise, Febreeze, And Squand

Fragrance reviews are silly. Fragrance marketing is even sillier. So from now on, we’ll be crowdsourcing our fragrance reviews. Read on to find out what our office thought about the latest sample to land on our desk.

Fragrance: Prada Infusion D’Iris Absolue, $80

What Prada thinks it smells like: “As precious and as rare as gold, Infusion d’Iris Absolue is the pure essence of Infusion d’Iris, an invitation to experience ultimate luxury and travel deeper into the Iris universe. Much more than an intensified version of the Eau de Parfum, Infusion d’Iris Eau de Parfum Absolue expresses the iris in a new way like an olfactory escapade, oriental and luminous.”

What we think it smells like:

  • “Smells like baby powder with a hint of old, waxy lipstick.”
  • “Like what Suri Cruise would wear.”
  • “Like my mom’s dressing room.”
  • “Kind of unpleasantly metallic. But that could just be the tip of the bottle.”
  • “It smells like if you Febreeze-d a very large room once with one mist and then expected to smell something.”
  • “Wealthy old woman. Like what my mom used to wear, but for white people in the Hamptons.”
  • “It kind of smells nice but with too much alcohol.”
  • “Smells a lot like baby powder. Or baby wipes even.”
  • “Smells like my aunt from Staten Island.”
  • “It’s almost weird how much it’s not jumping out at me. It’s very laid-back, reserved, understated. Subtle.”
  • “Smells like baby powder.”
  • SQUAND.”

Tune in next time when we review Chanel’s Coromandel, which “unfolds in undulating detail, starting with an amber vibrato, followed by dry notes of Frankincense and Benzoin, then, soulful woody notes that add elegance and depth to the sensuous accord’s striking trail”.
