Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular (Limited Edition) Perfume
When it comes to fragrance, Escada excels at turning Jell-O shots into perfume. This limited edition summer perfume for 2015, Turquoise Summer, is no exception. Escada is at it again!
Turquoise Summer opens with strawberry Jell-O powder dissolving into hot water. And then BAM it’s blue raspberry Jell-O and pineapple flavored vodka. It wears as artificial flavoring berries that eventually dries down to a generic, modern warm musk. Yep, this is a limited edition Escada. This is what they do.
I don’t know what’s wrong with me, but I don’t mind this one. It’s exactly what I expect from Escada. It’s synthetic fruits and musk. I’ve actually wore my sample for “fun”, almost like some sort of rebellion from my usual perfume rotation from brands like Chanel and Serge Lutens.
Notes listed include strawberry, blackberry, black currant, peach, violet, orange blossom, vanilla and sandalwood. Launched in 2015.
Give Turquoise Summer a try if you like really fruity or berry scents. Or if you like perfumes like The Body Shop Strawberry, any of the other limited edition summer Escada perfumes. Ralph Lauren Ralph Wild and/or Marc Jacobs Oh, Lola.
Considering that it’s an EDT, I find projection and longevity to be average for an EDP. I smelled like berries all day long.
This fragrance comes in a few sizes with prices ranging from $46-$77 at Sephora.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Jell-O shots and modern musk. I expect nothing more and nothing less from Escada.
