Especially Escada is a new addition to Escada’s permanent line, and it’s a gorgeous scent, that I have been wearing everyday since I got it!
Especially Escada is based around rose, and is a beautifully light and feminine floral that feels modern and luxurious. The opening notes are crisp pear and ambrette seeds, which give it its light, feminine feel, at the heart of the scent is rose and ylang ylang, and the base of musk gives the scent a sophisticated edge.
When I first spray this the pear and the floral really come through, and on these cold grey mornings it is really uplifting! Through the musk balances out the floral and keeps the scent feeling modern and fresh.
I love fragrances with elements of musk and am normally more drawn to warmer, spicier fragrances, but it is great to find a floral scent that I love, as I don’t always feel warmer scents are fitting for spring and summer.
The bottle is gorgeous, and has the perfect balance of the feminine pink and the chunky cube shaped bottle. The heavy weight bottle and the the beautiful gold double E lid give it a really luxurious and expensive feel.
The perfume has good wear time, and I love that I can still smell it on my scarf the next morning, however if you like to carry your perfume around with you it might be worth using a Travelo or something similar as the bottle isn’t really designed for travel.
I really love this perfume, and it’s my perfume of choice for the summer (if it ever arrives!)
Especially Escada is available at Escentual and retails between £32 and £56
