About this deal

You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. But above all, non mentioned in the notes, I smell gooseberries and cloudberries: the Nordic yellow raspberries. I remember distinctly that this was the only perfume my nose could tolerate when I got married and became pregnant with my first child in 2005. It gives me the ultimate feeling of freshness, juiciness, greenness - all that you would expect from the nature at the beginning of summer - only multiplied by 100! Thankfully, she has hoarded several bottles of the good old original early 2000s formula, and so I convinced her to give me a bottle for old time's sake.

For the life of me I can’t pin which note is taking over this entire fragrance on my skin but it’s very sharp and not flattering at all. The powerful opening, perfect to reveal your seductive side, then transitions into an intense floral heart; rose, the eternal symbol of both femininity and love, blends beautifully with white flowers in a timeless and sophisticated bouquet. They usually come in a plain box instead of the usual decorative packaging and may have “”Tester”” somewhere on the bottle. I get banana leaves, Daisy essence, caramel among the foliage of a tropical jungle mixed with a dash of the wet soil after it rains. I’ve yet to wear this with full force so I may come back and review scores but it’s not the loudest or longest perfume but I will not hesitate to respray.

It’s a suffocating kind of sweet chemical smell, Maybe it’s the green notes, I’m really not a fan of green notes for the most part. While this type of scent is not really to my taste, I must commend Escada on creating something which shamelessly screams "Smell Me", and has a well-balanced composition. But if you are willing to spray it more like a body spray, the projection and longevity is actually not bad.

I really wanted to like this, I think it’s that this fragrance with my skin chemistry is not a good match at all. I get what people are saying about the fresh cut grass aspect too, but to me the Dr Pepper Chapstick scent stands out much more. Eight hours later I could smell a soft, sweetened, and warm musk; it was my skin but so much better.First of all, I expected sweet fruitiness from this one (as most of the Escada fragrances), but it turned out to be a fruity-green. There is patchouli, green leaves and basil mixed with the sweetness of whatever fruit , which makes it exotic and "industrially natural", if that makes any sense, there is a juxtaposition that works well. It isnt as overpowering as it was in the beginning, its sweet but mature, but I have no idea how to describe the smell, but it so beautiful! As a child, this smelled to me like what an 'adult' smells like; I think even back then I perceived the connotations of this being 'sexy. I would definitely categorise this as a clean carefree perfume (with neither green nor citrus nor aquatic notes -thank God-) and for that alone it is a big like from me so far.

i am testing another scent on my arm which is in a different place, but i think its too loud for me to totally explain magnetism. Oriental-scents, such as this one, are luxurious and warm, fusing aromas such as precious-woods, musk and spices together and commonly featuring an amber accord. But the special effect comes from the green notes, which are not letting it to change into a sweet mess. When i got this perfume many years ago, i was looking for that caramel note everybody was talking about.it smells dark, expensive and green, and the sweetness is very *Not "cancan" or "pink sugar" sweet* its much more an elegant sweetness, very sexy and a bit daring. Quess what, I didn't like it either lol, but I wore it as I didn't have any other perfumes (I was around 18-19 years old).

I won't repurchase it, but it should be tested on the skin because on a blotter it's a completely different story. Those notes are really recognizable from the start until the end and they're transforming it into a mesmerizing scent.For the ones who did not smell the original formula, it may be a really nice scent, but for those who know: they know, and it will never be the same again. But now that I’m an adult with a job, in the midst of collecting perfume and feeling nostalgic…there was nothing to stop me. Top notes are Red Berries, Black Currant, Cassia, Litchi, Pineapple and Melon; middle notes are Green Leaves, Basil, Almond Blossom, Iris, Freesia, Heliotrope, Jasmine, Magnolia, Rose, Caraway and Lily-of-the-Valley; base notes are Caramel, Vanilla, Patchouli, Benzoin, Sandalwood, Musk, Amber and Vetiver. The Heart note of ROSE is the eternal symbol of love and femininity and gives off a timelessly beautiful scent. Since re-purchasing it a couple of years ago I haven't used much of this but decided to wear it today.
