Yesterday Luna Rossa, Prada’s sailing team, beat Swedish rival Artemis in the first race of the Louis Vuitton Cup semifinals, held on San Francisco Bay. While this competition ends August 30, these catamarans are gearing up for America’s Cup, a 162-year-old regatta that kicks off in September. In honor of its team (and much to the delight of Sperry-wearing men everywhere), the Italian powerhouse brand produced a collector’s version of their Luna Rossa cologne that launched earlier this year. Dressed in a crisp white cage and accented with a mirrored bottom, this mod and masculine flacon is likely to be stashed away in any well-dressed captain’s quarters. Designed by Yves Béhar, the olfactory vessel was inspired by the sleek, dynamic beauty of extreme sailboats. As for the scent inside, it’s the same as the original created by perfumer Daniela Andrier—a refreshing blend of bitter orange, aromatic lavender, and woody amber that smells both rugged and refined. The winner of America’s Cup won’t be named until September 21, but be sure to nab this fragrance for your guy before this limited-edition bottle sails into the sunset.
