My staple or signature scent if you will is Alien by Thierry Mugler more often or not
that is what I will spritz on myself and clothes as I live in a wet, dull city a heavy scent
isn't all that out of place but on the odd day we get a sunny spell I do feel the night for a brighter, lighter scent
and in my opinion no brand quite encapsulate the spirit of sunshine and good times like Escada!
Escada Rockin' Rio has been around for a good few years now and is a yearly limited edition,
in my experience Debenhams has always came out tops when it comes to sourcing this scent
especially if you enjoy a good gift with purchase deal every now and then, I must have about four
Escada beach towels by now haha!
I actually bought my bottle in duty free and although I got a great deal I do wish I waited until back
in the UK so I could have bought the large 100ml bottle...oh well you live and learn!
"Rockin' Rio - Inspired by the ultimate holiday cocktail - the Pina Colada, and the best of fun times in the sun in Rio de Janeiro. Rockin' Rio has a sweet yet fresh and fruity character - achieved via the combination of tropical coconut and pineapple - that drives its uniqueness amongst the Spring/Summer collection"
Do not fear the description yes it is inspired by a cocktail but it is not sickly sweet,
yes it is fruity but it does not smell like you have rolled around in a fruit cocktail and survived to tell the tale.
In my opinion the coconut accords are over powered by the pineapple and with a slight whiff of passionfruit.
If you enjoy the likes of The Body Shop and fruity scented body products but wish they were slightly more
refined then may I point you in the direction of Escada Rockin' Rio?
I promise it won't disappoint and is one to have at hand for any sunny day that may come your way!
