I often turned to the same passage in Without Reservations, a favourite travel memoir by Alice Steinbach, during my months-long journey through Europe this fall: “In the end, what adds up to a life is nothing more than the accumulation of small daily moments.” Based on my own personal experience, I don’t think truer words were ever said—whether it was the moment I sat in Paris and watched leaves softly fall from above as the seasons turned or spontaneously touring through Galway’s traditional pubs and wine haunts with a best friend, it’s not just the moments that make up a life, but truly taking the time to stop and take in these special fleeting instances as they come.

I love that Prada Florale is not only a fragrance that I want to wear day in and day out, but that it captures the spirit of joie de vivre and of living in the moment. It’s a scent that followed me on my journeys as I truly fell in love with different places and different moments, and one that I’ll continue to wear to remind myself to “stop and smell the roses” (or any flowers for that matter!).
So this week, rather than hurrying through your busy days without stopping to recognize the special instances that happen (or that you could make on your own!), try to appreciate the little things. After all, if life really is just an accumulation of small daily moments, it’s best to make them as sweet and as special as possible.

Prada’s latest fragrance evolved from the concept of an imaginary flower created especially for Candy. Of course, Candy cannot simply have any flower. Her flower has to be wondrous and sophisticated, bursting with life and sensuality as Candy herself.
Light airy top notes put the sparkle in Candy, tender powdery heart notes echo her Spring-like grace, and a whisper of warmth and honey reflect Candy’s sensuality.
