To celebrate 20 years of summer fragrances Escada have relaunched three of their best selling annual fruity fragrances. I've only recently become interested in Escada's summer fragrances after smelling last years 'Taj Sunset', so this is a great way for me to try out some of the most popular ones from years gone by.
I picked up this set of miniature 4ml bottles in Debenhams, to test out and see which ones I liked best. It was a great deal as you get five 4ml bottles for £22.00, awesome if your a collector which is what I'm quickly becoming. It also included 'Taj Sunset' and 'Marine Groove' but I'm just focusing on the newly rereleased ones today.
The first one is 2002's Sexy Graffiti which I have to say is my least favourite of the lot. To me it smells like cheap strawberry shower gel, it's quite a young fragrance and not at all sophisticated. It does evolve slightly on the skin, as more of the peony and vanilla musk comes out but it still doesn't lose it's strawberry shortcake feel for me.
So there you have it! those are my thoughts on this years Escada summer fragrances. I will say that all of these have moderate longevity and sillage, so they will need to be reapplied throughout the day but that's normal for most Eau de Toilette's. They are only available for a limited period of time in sizes of 30ml, 50ml & 100ml, I can see these being really popular this summer so get them while you can.
