FRAGRANCE: Especially Escada

Especially Escada was launched globally back in August 2011 by the House of Escada. A luxurious and feminine fragrance, it was inspired by the spirit of today's woman. Her steps dance around joyfulness and spontaneity and she lets her emotions take charge. She remains optimistic no matter what the circumstances are, lives to the fullest and her happiness is her pillar of strength. But she is also a woman who remains true to herself.

The rosy pink fragrance is housed in a solid, square glass flacon, sealed at the top with Escada's classic and iconic double E logo gold lid. The flacon is a reflection of the fragrance's beautiful balance between modernity and classicism, two characteristics that are intrinsic to the Escada brand.

The fragrance is built around a delicate rose accord that expresses soft femininity. It is inspired by the glistening scent of morning dew on a sparkling rose.

Top Notes
Light scents that are detected immediately upon application. Forms your first impression.
The intense, sparkling top notes of pear intertwine with the sweet, musky notes of Ambrette seeds. This creates a burst of freshness and the idyllic introduction to the all-important heart accord.

Middle Notes
Scents that emerge just before the top notes departs. Masks initial unpleasant impression of base notes, which improves with time.
The opulent Bulgarian Rose lies at the heart of the fragrance. It is specially collected in the wee hours of the morning to capture its sophisticated and classic aroma. Delicate notes of Ylang Ylang work with the rose to create a soft, floral and intensely feminine appeal. The floral bouquet radiates a fresh and natural aura of positivity and the uplifting ingredients are synonymous with joy unfolding.

Base Notes
Rich and deep scents that emerge before the middle notes departs. Brings depth and solidity to the fragrance.
Light, musky notes are used at the base to support the delicate rose accord and to add a subtle touch of femininity.

Especially Escada is a rich floral scent that isn't too overwhelming. Bright and refreshing, it has just the right amount of femininity in it; the delicate rose notes are perfectly balanced by the musky ones so that the scent doesn't overwhelm but enhance. This is a scent that I would wear in the day, with my hair down or tied loosely in a ponytail. I'd pair it with bright and cheery girly outfits, like flowy dresses and skirts that swish and swing.

And of course, lots of pink.
