Escada Eau de Parfum
Advantages: pretty bottle
Disadvantages: hard to come by in the UK
I am not a perfume-type of person, I don't wear it regularly and I'm not the kind of person who can recognise what perfume people are wearing when they walk past me but i do own a few perfumes and those that I do have I really like. One of the first fragrances I bought was Escada Island Kiss and I really like it, my husband a couple of years ago decided to buy me this one for my birthday and although I prefer Island Kiss I still do really like this and think it is a lovely perfume.
The bottle of this perfume is different to my other Escada one, it is short and wide so very different as the other bottle is tall and slim! It is almost oval shaped so quite unusual and I think it stands out on my dressing table.It is a 50ml bottle and my husband said he bought it off the Internet for about £50 which I think is a lot of money to pay but it is something which I think is quite special.
The description of this perfume is that it has top notes of black currant, nectarine, green leaves,cassia, cucumber, bergamot and lemon. Middle Notes: peony, magnolia, orange blossom, freesia,jasmine, lily-of-the-valley and rose.Base Notes: iris, sandalwood, amber, patchouli, musk,vanilla and tangerine. I am not a perfume reviewer or specialist so I don't really quite understand what it all means but when I spray this I can smell a really light fragrance of very fresh light fruits like black currant and the freshness of cucumber then I do get a hint of flowers without it being too strong or sickly, I can't really smell vanilla or musk but there is a nice sweet zesty smell which must be the tangerine. The different combinations of fruits, flowers and musk really make this a lovely fragrance.
I don't like smelling really strongly of something and I don't feel like I do when I wear this as it's so light. I find that just using one spray of it is enough, it lasts all day long too, my husband comments at the end of the night when I've been wearing this that he can still smell it and that's really good to know. My husband says he likes it because it's sweet and fruity but not too much and I know what he means, I really dislike very over the top sweetness and this has got the balance just right.
I tend to use this when I'm going out for a special event or in the evening but this is because I am not a perfume wearer on a daily basis. I don't think there is anything stopping you using this as your daily perfume if you wear it regularly because it is nice and light.
I like this perfume and do recommend it. It is hard to get in this country which is why my husband bought it from the internet so it may be hard to get a chance to sample it but in my opinion it is a nice, light, fresh fragrance which has good staying power and the bottle is pretty too.
Summary: I like!
