Escada's annual spring-summer limited-edition is called Cherry in the Air this year following up on Taj Sunset in 2011, which was reportedly a big hit, and a trio of re-issues in 2012. The series started in 1993 with Chiffon Sorbet...
Cherry in the Air is a fruity gourmand with notes of black cherry, marshmallow and sandalwood.
It is, according to the commercial copy, "an irresistible scent inspired by the unmistakable, fresh and sweet scent of blossoming cherries. As the first fruit of summer, a glimpse of cherries ripening in the trees instantly awakens the delightful anticipation of long, warm, carefree days ahead. So colourful and delicious, their enticing aroma stimulates the senses, conjuring youthful daydreams of cycling with friends through the orchards of southern France and feasting on a fruit-laden picnic basket under a canopy of bountiful cherry trees. Escada Cherry in the Air features a captivating blend of succulent red fruits and addictive gourmand notes that ignite your zest for life and trigger the same joyful contemplation of fun-filled summers as flourishing cherries."
