Escada Sunset Heat
I got this perfume in a Collector's Edition pack of 5 Escada Perfumes; Island kiss, Rockin' Rio, Pacific Paradise, Sunset Heat and Ibiza Hippie.
I first heard of Escada when I bought Pacific Paradise on the Ferry on the way to Italy, from then on the smell always reminded me of that holiday, and became one of my favourite perfumes. So when I saw this pack for £12.50 for 5 small bottles (4ml each), I just had to buy them to try them all, so I could choose my favourite one!
And I must say they were all delicious! With such strong fruity smells which stuck around all day, my only problem was there wasn't enough of it in the bottles, and I tended to use half a bottle each time I used it!
But it gave me a great experience of using them all so I could choose which ones I wanted in larger bottles rather than wasting my money on perfumes I might not like!
== Smell ==
Perfume is all about the smell, if the bottle is beautiful but the perfume smells like cooked cabbage, then it's not much use spending £40 on a bottle of it just to look at the pretty bottle, whereas if the bottle is something to be desired, but the perfume is beautiful, then it is worth the money! But with Escada Sunset Heat you get the best of both worlds, as both packaging and perfume are both beautiful!
I actually think this is one of the nicest Escada perfumes out there and the only one in my collectors edition which is already all gone, and is definitely one which I will be looking out for in the shops for a full bottle!
The smell is very different to the rest of the perfumes in the pack in that it doesn't have that Escada smell to it, which seems to be in all the perfumes by them, the only thing I don't really like about it is the small after smell which comes through which kind of has a smell which smells hot and sticky and kind of strange and a little dull, but this smell goes very quickly and your left with the bright smell of the perfume.
The smell is very tangy and smells kind of blackcurrants, very bright and summery. It's a delicious smell and light yet quite strong at the same time meaning it sticks onto you all day unlike Rockin' Rio which seems to go after an hour or so!
The smell is gorgeous and gives you a nice summery feeling, making it perfect for both summer and winter as in summer it makes you feel good about the sun, and in winter it gives you the summer vibe inside!
== How Long does it last? ==
You yourself kind of forget you're wearing the perfume and stop smelling it, but other people can still smell the gorgeous smell coming from you for hours after you have applied it. So even though you forget it's there, other people don't!
Of course it depends on how much you put on as to how long it lasts really, if you put a dab onto each wrist and each side of your neck, it isn't as strong and so it's not going to stick around for as long, but on average it lasts around 3-4 hours before you need to re-spray making it the perfect perfume for work, college etc, and great when going for a meal or a night out as the gorgeous smell sticks around all evening without having to take expensive perfume out in your handbag with you to re-spray!
== When can I wear it? ==
The perfume is an all day perfume, it's the type you can get away with wearing in work/school/college but also wearing it when you are going on a night out too. Some perfumes have a very sophisticated smell to them which only really suit a night out at a meal or a wedding for example! But this has the kind of smell which you can wear any time meaning that for one you don't have to have a selection of perfumes for all occasions, but also meaning that the perfume runs out very quickly!!!
My small bottle of this perfume (only 4ml) lasted me just a couple of applications, so I can see that if I bought a big bottle it would be gone in a month!!!
== What is the packaging like? ==
The bottle is the traditional love heart shaped Escada bottle, which is normal with all of their perfumes, with an orange lid, bright yellow glass at the top, fading into opaque orange glass at the bottom. Its a very bright summer coloured bottle, which makes you think of the summer when you see it, the smell of the perfume really matches the bottle and box, with the colours etc, so I think it is aimed much more at the Summer than winter, and is the perfect accompaniment to the sun outside!
The packaging is very appealing, and as I said is very bright and summery much like the perfume inside!
== In Conclusion ==
Sunset Hear is a beautiful perfume, which is perfect for the Summer, and can be used in both the day and night, and is perfect for summer weddings and other occasions! I personally would use this more during the night as it is quite strong and would be perfect for a night time meal when on holiday, I can imagine sitting in a beautiful Greek taverna wearing this perfume with a glass of red wine eating gorgeous Greek food (oh and not forgetting the gorgeous Greek God of a waiter of course!).
On average the perfume costs around £35 a bottle (this is for a 30ml bottle), which is quite expensive really for a small bottle of perfume. But you can probably get it from Amazon or Ebay for less.
The perfume is actually quite hard to find in the shops, but I have seen it in the store BodyCare which are around the country, for around £20-£25, but as the perfume was a limited edition when brought out, it is quite hard to find and isn't sold in the likes of Boots, The Fragrance Shop or anywhere like that!
All in all, I would give this perfume a perfect 10 out of 10 and 5 stars! Beautiful perfume!
This is a beautiful fresh and fruity perfume at a great price! I love this perfume for two reasons, it smells fantastic and its quite cheap. Be careful not to splash too much on as it can become a little over powering. It last quite a while but you may feel you need to refresh after a few hours. its a beautiful summer day / evening perfume and smells like you could drink it. I have had a few comments on this perfume but it isn't dramatically distinctive. I have never had any negative comments apart from when I have applied far too much. I like to cover myself in perfume so I like smoother perfumes which don't have that choke factor when applied liberally. The bottle is cheap looking but don't let that fool you into thinking that this is an inferior product. Its a great cheap every day perfume which is great if the kids have a habbit of stealing you perfumes!
Now this is a perfume that some people may not like.
I got this perfume from a friend for my birthday a year ago and I actually really like it.
BUT I will warn anyone thinking of purchasing this perfume that it is very sweet! Almost a sickly smell, its very fruity! In a way it reminds me of that drink Ki Ora, or some sweets!
The bottle is nice, its an orange colour. This perfume should really be worn in the summer as it is quite fresh. I wouldn't wear it in the winter. I would wear this as a daily perfume aswell, even though you might not be able to afford to with the price of it!
It can be quite expensive. Retails at around £30 but you can get it off the internet for around £20.
I personally wouldn't buy this perfume, but don't mind it as a gift!
Try before you buy!
Sunset Heat by Escada came out in 2006. It's a very exotic smelling perfume, it reminds me of a fruity cocktail with mangos, melons, pineapple... This scent reminds me of a refreshing, exotic fruit cocktail that you can find on an exotic beach somewhere, where you're surrounded by palm trees and fresh, vibrant flowers...
I love wearing this scent in summer, it's especially nice to wear in the evenings as I don't like anything heavy during the day. For most, this perfume won't be classed as heavy at all! It's no where near as intense as say Poison by Dior, but it has a bit more of a kick to it than other light and breezy scents.
The bottle is very pretty and exotic looking; it's a bright orange, red and yellow stained glass and is a pretty elongated heart shape. It has a bright orange cap and a spray.
This perfume is more intended for younger people, as it has a very fruity aroma that might not appeal to older women. This would make a great present for collectors of fruity perfumes and would look great on their dresser too.
I first saw this product in a clothes store near my home while buying a new top. As you do, i smelt a few of the fregrences on the counter but the design and colour of this bottle really caught my eye. I sprayed it on my wrist to smell it and straight away i fell in love with it. Its scent is vers fruity and exotic. I sprayed my whole body with the perfume and left the store feeling fruity and fresh. A few weeks later a returned to the stor to buy Escada: Sunset Heat, Eau de Toilette, to take on holidays. I love this fragrance as i could ware it in the day, to make me feel fresh and fruity, but then also ware it in the evening, to make me feel fruity, sexy and exotic. The fragrance is quite strong so you dont have to spray too much and it lasted quite long. The price isnt too expensive but it is well worth the money, for someone young, who wants to smell like a n exotic, fruity, sunset.
