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

NOTES (as listed on perfumeemporium.com): Japanese yuzu, ruby red grapefruit, peach, raspberry, pink freesia, lotus blossom, violet leaves, sambac flowers, white wood, powdery musk

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!

CLASSIFICATION: fruity, tropical

Nina Ricci Pretty Nina

NOTES: grapefruit, green apple, raspberry, jasmine, Sambac blossom, caramel, apple tree accords, powdery vanilla, sensual musk.

Nina Ricci launched a new, special edition version of the ever-so-popular Nina (from 2006) earlier this year. The fragrance is supposed to be a younger, lighter, and sweeter version of the original version, and those that have smelled it have likened it to a candy store reminiscent of the olden days. I attempted to locate this perfume at my local mall, but without success. Desperate to sample what I figured would be a delectable scent straight from Heaven, I took the plunge and purchased a full size bottle on eBay.

CLASSIFICATION: unique, slightly fruity, slightly floral, slightly gourmand

AGE GROUP: college/mature

Upon the discovery that there are gourmand fragrances that appeal to me (i.e. Hilary Duff’s Wrapped With Love, 2008), I decided to purchase a sample vial of Aquolina’s Pink Sugar with my last fragrancenet.com shipment. I was counting on hating this fragrance, and let’s just say that I was definitely not disappointed.

CLASSIFICATION: Candy. Baked goods.
