Escada Sexy Graffiti
Escada Sexy Graffiti

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

SIMILAR SCENT(s): Escada Tropical Punch

FORM: Eau de Toilette
