Escada Especially Eau de Parfum
Advantages: Nice floral perfume
Disadvantages: None for me
I do like my perfumes, and whilst I have a few that I use on a regular basis which are my favourites I am always on the look out to try out different fragrances. A few weeks ago I received a free sample of the perfume Especially Escada, to be honest the Escada perfumes were ones which I hadn't heard a lot about and I didn't really know anything about them, however I was keen to give it a try to see if it was one to add to my collection.
As I have mentioned I received this perfume as a sample rather than the full sized bottle, however I have done a bit of research into this brand as it was one I knew very little about and if you buy the perfume it comes in a very attractive bottle. The bottle is quite flat and wide in shape, it is made from a thick clear glass allowing you to see the perfume inside, the word Escada appears on the front of the bottle in gold. This lid is an oversized gold E shape which sits on top of the bottle, however as I have said mine is just a free sample so does not come in a pretty bottle to have standing out on the side. The bottle comes in a bright pink rectangle box which really makes the perfume stand out on the shelf, I would definitely be happy to have this perfume standing out in my bedroom both in and out of the box.
I had no idea what to expect from this perfume so I was keen to try it straight away, when I first smelt the fragrance before applying it to my skin I noticed it had a strong floral fragrance to it but I was keen to see how this developed.
* Top Notes - Pear, Ambrette Seeds
* Heart Notes - Rose Petals & Ylang Ylang
* Base Notes - Musk
When I first applied this perfume I have to admit I could not detect the top notes of pear and to be honest have no idea what ambrette seed is supposed to smell like, for me the dominant fragrance I could detect as soon as I applied the perfume was the Rose Petals, this was the strongest fragrance and did definitely dominate, this gave the Especially Escada perfume a floral fragrance. The floral notes lasted for quite sometime, however after a while I did start to notice the base note of musk start to creep in, this gradually became stronger, and rather than covering the floral fragrance of rose petals the musk scent mixed with this giving the perfume an overall floral musky smell to it. I wore this perfume all day at work and found that it did last reasonably well, towards the end of the day the fragrance was beginning to fade slightly, however it was still detectable.
In my opinion I would say that Especially Escada is more of a summery fragrance especially with the dominant floral notes, this perfume would be perfect to wear on a warm summers day. I would say that it is suitable for most occasions, however personally I think this is probably a perfume I would wear more in the day time rather than on a night out, when the base note of musk comes through I would say it is more suitable for an evening occasions, however the strong floral notes when first applied for me makes it more suited to day wear. I would say that Especially Escada isn't aimed at a particular ages group and would say that it is suitable for anyone depending on your personal preferences.
The Especially Escada perfume is available in a variety of places such as department stores as well as online from sites such as cheap smells.com and theperfumeshop.com. The price varies depending on where you purchase the perfume from, on The Perfume Shop website this perfume is sold for
*30ml Bottle - £31.50
*50ml Bottle - £44.50
Personally I would say that this perfume is fairly priced and the prices for the different sized bottles is pretty much in keeping with this type of product. I would say it was worth the money as it does last well, you do not need a lot of this perfume in one go a few squirts is plenty so I would say it is good value for money.
Overall I would definitely recommend Especially Escada, it is a lovely summery fragrance ideal for wearing all day. The fragrance in my opinion lasts well and I found that I didn't need to reapply during the day at all. This perfume is perfect if you like a floral summery fragrance, although this does mix with the musk base notes as the fragrance develops. I would say it is fairly priced and would definitely consider purchasing it myself in the future.
Summary: A nice summery fragrance
