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
