Failed carbon dating
I also find Carbon more appropriate for a professional, and adult dating setting.
Hurry up and get your nose on Carbon if you haven't smelled it yet.
Reminds me of a young man on a quest to find something he lost.
Longevity - 8/10(8 hours) Silage/Projection - 7/10(moderate projection and silage for the first 2-3 hours) Weather - For more or less any time of year. I personally wouldn't wear this on a really cold winter days.
Carbon has more depth and is lighter, fresher, cleaner.
Ventana specifically doesn't have really have hints of a cold/steel metallic vibe (which Carbon has a little of but not overly so while people say Sauvage is too aggressive at times in that way).
Projection is very good for at least 3 hours on my skin and longevity around 8 hours. I picked up lavender right away the moment I smelled it the first time. The juice distribution is awful, topped off with a cheap clear cap. I think à little touche of "carbon note" makes this scent more attractive and than sauvage .
Without comparing it to anything else, Luna Rossa Carbon smells clean and elegant. If you are a good nose you'll notice that it's à complétely différent animal.it's more refined and subtile.
The drydown is a bit metallic and powdery and I get some -ambroxan,patchouli,lavender,spices and metallic notes. It was just too harsh and overpowering in every way.Same DNA, but Sauvage is wearing a shiny suit with a flowery print shirt underneath and a few buttons undone with a gold chain exposed...Prada Luna Rossa Carbon is wearing a more conservative charcoal grey suit with a white dress shirt and black tie. Definately big similarities with Sauvage (Which I also like alot) but this scent is less obnoxious, Its softer and has a beautiful aroma. ..the compliment came from someone at work I don't get along with.My 2 bottles of 2010 la nuit de l'homme have finally been ousted from their top spot in my collection. I have Armaf Ventana (a clone of Dior Sauvage) and if Sauvage smells close enough to it, I'd say I personally prefer Carbon.Ventana comes off as "warm" with ambroxan while Carbon comes off fresh, cool, classy with ambroxan. I want Carbon - I'm interested in trading one of my scents in my arsenal for it - direct message me if interested.Carbon reminds me of the best "version" of Sauvage.I will say that for some reason I don't mind Cool Spray - it must be the fruitier opening notes. Yet, it has a beautiful accord that I cannot describe. Very nice fragrance, crowd pleaser and complements monster.Think of Dior Sauvage and Prada Luna Rossa Carbon as twin brothers. I tested a free sample of this fragrance from Sephora - out of all the scents that I have in my arsenal that I've worn to work, this is the only one so far that has garnered me a compliment...I have a bottle of azzaro pour home, a classic from 1978. All three are aromatic fougerres but all three are so different from each other it’s hard to believe they are classified the same. Carbon is far more delicate and dare I say feminine compared to the other 2. I own a bottle of Dior Sauvage (I even own a bottle of Sauvage Cool Spray! For my taste and style, Prada Luna Rossa Carbon is my favourite out of the three (my second favourite is Cool Spray). Just as many have stated already, Carbon smells VERY close to Sauvage, but the one thing I prefer is that it is smoother and a bit more refined.Projection and longevity are good - maybe not as 'nuclear' as Sauvage, but for my style, Carbon is perfect.This all leads into a bit powdery,rubbery,metallic and plastic base with dominant ambroxan.It has similarities to Sauvage by Dior,but it is a bit more refined,more pleasing,cleaner, sweeter and more tamed than Sauvage and with a nice touch of lavender.
