Having read what the top, middle, and base notes were on this perfume, I bought without even smelling in a department store (they didn't carry it), as they were scents I predicted I would love. The reason I chose the "refill", is that with sprays, 60 percent of the spray goes into the air, and not on me, such a waste of money. With this, I can put it exactly where I want it. I also dumped out some old tiny perfume bottles and washed out well, and then using a pipette, which I had in my medical supplies (you can buy at a pharmacy), I siphoned out enough to fill a couple of small bottles, one for my purse, another for next to where I sit at home. This refill comes with a funnel, but it was too large to fill the small perfume bottles I had. This is the ONLY smell, which on me, lasts. I can smell 2 of the base notes which happen to be 2 of my favorites, the musk and sandalwood the next morning. I believe the difference is that Prada uses pure essential oils as opposed to synthetic ingredients, which is often used in other EDP's. This of course raises the cost, but you get what you pay for. I did think at first it was overpriced, especially since I'm not working, but I couldn't be happier. Another important note, when first applying, the smell to me was not that pleasant, but after dry-down, and with my body chemistry, it is now my favorite.
This perfume is not available in department stores anymore, and I thought it would be interesting to try. So I ordered it on Overstock not knowing how it smelled, and I was very unpleasantly surprised. All of my friends agreed--very unfeminine and just generally unpleasant.

Love this fragrance. Fill my atomizers with it and put it in my purse. Get compliments from women even at the end of the work day but it is not overpowering. Men LOVE it.

This is the original Prada perfume and although I do like the others that have come after this I have never receivced so MANY compliments as I did with this fragrance. . I usually had to mail order this from one of the larger department stores but I ordered from OS.com and it came faster and cheaper and is excatly the same, If you are looking for a signature fragrance...this is it! Thanks Overstock........you guys rock!
This perfume is defintily one of my favorite purchases from Overstock! It's a refil, but I use it just straight from the bottle. It lasts 3x as long and since it's made from real perfume oils, I can still smell it at the end of a looong day. I love the way it smells, though it took some getting used to. I'm 27 and at first thought it was a little "old" for me, but now I wear it day after day and continue to get compliments on it! I love this perfume and love overstock for providing it so cheaply!!
