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.

CLASSIFICATION: Fruity, feminine, tropical

AGE GROUP: College

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

FORM: Eau de Toilette

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.

I am not a fan of many Bath & Body Works scents, so I was very leery of even entering the store despite the fact that I had a $25 gift card in my wallet.
