The perfume Infusion de Fleur d'Oranger by Prada, which was created by perfumer Daniela Andrier and launched in 2009 has been made part of an exhibit currently taking place at the Musée d'Orsay in Paris. The exhibition is called Art Nouveau Revival and takes a closer look at the influence of the organic "style nouille" or noodle style on contemporary culture...
The curators selected Infusion de Fleurs d'Oranger for the Art Nouveau wallpaper-like pattern on the packaging which was taken from the Prada collection of fall-winter 2003. The 60s psychedelic twist is also part of the material examined by the exhibition.
I would argue also that the smell of the perfume goes well with this turn-of-the-century atmosphere. I know I decided to purchase the scent myself after visiting a historical exhibition (another draft of a perfume review is signaled here).
I love the green of the packaging and the contrast with the orange, pink and black. The green I think looks very much like a period color with just the light suggestion of it being a bit faded by time.
Art Nouveau Revival 1900. 1933. 1966. 1974 started on October 20th, 2009 and runs until February 4th, 2010.
