It’s Spring and that means Escada has a new perfume! Escada Miami Blossom Eau De Toilette launched a few short months ago just in time for the Spring/Summer season with notes of juicy pineapple and watermelon.
Escada’s seasonal fragrances aren’t exactly known for their longevity both in terms of formula and shelf life (they tend to stick around for a few months before disappearing and being replaced with a new edition the following year) but I always end up buying them because I’m a sucker for sweeter, fruitier fragrances and Escada delivers in that area flawlessly.
Last Spring, Escada Sorbetto Rosso and it was lovely but a bit too aquatic for my taste. It was the first year, I was actually ever so slightly disappointed in the brand’s seasonal limited edition scent.
This year, I’m quite happy as Miami Blossom brings back some good memories of past Escada fragrances like Ibiza Hippie and Sexy Graffiti!
When Ulta started sending out their 20% off coupons earlier this month I knew that Escada Miami Blossom was on my buy list. I typically and very easily blind buy most Escada scents as they don’t really disappoint me. I mean, sure, last year wasn’t the best of the best put out by the brand but it was in no way a scrubber either!
Escada Miami Blossom arrives in the brand’s signature packaging featuring some great graphics. Their packaging always reminds me of the Stila Girls which I do so love and miss. I also love the raspberry pink to orange ombre bottle.
This is a much, much fruitier versions than the fragrances I mentioned above, Sexy Graffiti and Ibiza Hippie, but the back note has that legendary Escada twang which isn’t really easy to describe if you’ve never tried a fragrance from the brand before. There’s some sort of note they use that just makes some of their fragrances pop and Miami Blossom has that POP!
For me, it’s all juicy, sweet watermelon at first which settles quickly to allow a succulent pineapple note to pull forward. It smells like a tropical drink from than on out. There are notes flora notes here that include tuberose, tiaree and jasmine as well as sandalwood but it’s really all sweetness from the fruit notes which really dominate the fragrance.
As with most Escada fragrances, it’s not terribly long-lasting but I can get about five hours worth of wear from it which isn’t half bad. It’s not something that completely disappears after the initial application.
If you like fun, flirty, and sweet you should get on really well with Escada Miami Blossom!
