Escada have launched their summer edition for 2012, a trio of limited-edition scents. They are called Sexy Graffiti, Rock'in Rio and Island Kiss.
Sexy Graffiti is making a stop this time in New York City. Last year, the estival edition was about India, with Taj Sunset.
"A magical summer moment, when the late New York afternoon sun gives way to a fun party atmosphere, inspired this fragrance. It's the time when cocktails flow, music plays, and the beautiful people make their way to the rooftop club. As the sun sets on the cityscape around you, the music captures the mood and takes you away from the city heat. The joyful ambience washes over you and the moment is imprinted on your memory as forever fun."...
One of the selling points for the new fragrance is rather low key and unassuming, saying that it's "wearable." It's a fruity-floral with a fruity sherbert-y quality.
Notes: Wild Strawberry, Raspberry, Pink Grapefruit, Mint, Blackcurrant, Lilly of the Valley, Red Peony, Violet, Cashmeran, Vanilla, Musks.
"The heady days of beach lounging in the Caribbean Sea inspired this fragrance. It's the water lapping the shore in subtle ripples and the bright sunshine forming dimples of light on the ocean. At the beachside bar, the D.J. captures the mood with blissful summer tunes that echo the rhythm of the waves. With the breathtaking colors of the sky and the sea surrounding you, this joyful ambience washes over you as the moment is imprinted on your memory forever."
"Island Kiss expresses the core heritage of Escada fashion fragrances with a blend of tropical red fruit and oriental floral notes. The trio of orange, passion flower, and mango top notes offers a mixture of sweet tropical passion that's brought to life with a hint of citrus freshness. The heart notes of magnolia and juicy peach provide a splash of warmth. At the base, the Escada signature of red fruits are blended with sultry woods and musk to drive the passion of the fragrance."
Orange, Passion Flower, Mango, Magnolia, Sunny Accord, White Peach, Hibiscus, Blond Woods, Musky Notes, Red Fruits.
Rock' in Rio:
"The ultimate vacation cocktail inspired Rock'in Rio. Imagine a vibrant and glamorous bar along a Rio promenade: the city's beautiful and sunkissed residents admire each other with their flowing hair and colorful flamboyance. The beat of Brazilian samba simmers distantly in the background while the heat of the day dissolves to reveal the true intensity of Rio and the spirit of glamour and passion continuing day after day."
A fruity floral scent, Rock'in Rio is a young, overdosed fragrance—like a piña colada cocktail in a bottle. The combination of tropical coconut and pineapple adds a sweet yet fresh and fruity character while driving its uniqueness. The top notes tango with tangerine and papaya, giving it a fresh, tropical zing. The sweet heart notes bring the smells of Rio to life with sugar cane and peach. At the base, the sexy harmony of soft, creamy sandalwood and musks deliver the lasting note of soft skin.
Tangerine, Papaya, Pineapple, Piña Colada, Sugarcane, Blush Peach, Driftwood, Sandalwood, Musky Notes.
