Escada Rockin’ Rio
Rockin Rio by Escada

Rockin' Rio by Escada

NOTES: Tangerine, Pineapple, Papaya, Piña Colada, Sugar Cane, Bush Peach, Dama de Noite, Sea Breeze, Coco Juice, Driftwood, Sandalwood, Powder of Musk

I recently added a sample vial of Rockin’ Rio to my latest FragranceX.com order, solely for reviewing purposes. I have something against Escada, even though I like a lot of their scents. To me, most of their limited edition summer fragrances are extremely similar, and frankly, that doesn’t impress me much. I am a proud owner of Pacific Paradise, though, and a part of me just can’t give Escada up.

CLASSIFICATION: Fruity, feminine, tropical

AGE GROUP: College

SIMILAR SCENT(s): Vaguely reminiscent of other Escada fragrances

FORM: Eau de Toilette

Escada Sexy Graffiti

NOTES: Wild Strawberry, Raspberry, Pink Grapefruit, Blackcurrant, Muget, Red Peony, Violet, Cashmere Wood, Vanilla, Musk

Escada launched their limited edition summer scent, Sexy Graffiti, in 2002. Hailed as a young, fresh, and fruity fragrance, I took it upon myself to sample it. I do not have much luck when it comes to the Escada line, and that’s probably for the best; as most of their perfumes are limited edition, purchasing a full size bottle of one of their perfumes no longer in production may just set you back $100-$200.

CLASSIFICATION: Feminine, fruity, fresh

AGE GROUP: Perfect for anyone

I bought Ghost Summer Flirt on a whim, I had never smelled it but it was a very bargain price; an offer I couldn’t refuse. What a unique excitement a scent addict feels when she gets a new bottle of perfume in the mail! It is a glory only a small few women will ever experience to it’s fullest, and I experienced it with Ghost Summer Flirt today!

NOTES (as listed on sephora.com): crumpled green leaves, fresh herbs, tagette, star fruit, peony, aquatic floral notes, water fruits, white cedar wood, musky cocktail, amber notes, wet woods

Escada and I usually get along pretty well, for the most part, so I wasn’t worried when I began to investigate the sample of Into The Blue that I had received. The scariest part of my experience was how powerful the spray was on the sample-sized vial.

CLASSIFICATION: slightly clean, slightly feminine

AGE GROUP: college / mature

SIMILAR SCENT(s): slightly reminiscent of Flower Princess (minus the flowery scent)

FORM: eau de parfum

I received a sample vial of Pacific Paradise in the mail and instantly fell in love smelling it from the tiny “test tube” that I had of it. I sampled it on my skin and was very intrigued with the scent, and after a few days, decided to purchase a bottle for my collection. Surprisingly, I’ve only worn it a couple of times since..

I received Incanto Dream in a long-awaited package containing several scents that I was highly anticipating, to say the least. When I got to the Incanto Dream box, it was like love at first site. The bottle is very pretty and unique, but we all know it’s what’s inside that counts. So, without further ado…
