Escada Pacific Paradise

RRP: £31/50ml

--What does the promo say?--
"This sexy fragrance was created by Escada in 2006. Its amazing scent includes a mixture of lime, dried Victoria apple, coconut sorbet, sugar candy, banana flower, Hawaiian salt blossom, sandalwood, powdery musk and amber crystals."

--Packaging--
A delightful pink and blue blend in the bottle which is perfect for summer and should suit everyone. Simple but perfect; really evokes the image of a paradisiacal sea.

--Application--
Spray whereever desired on the body.

--Appearance--
A clear liquid that can become a pale white when oxidised (this is something experienced more with the sample vials where the liquid can be exposed to the air when the lid is opened), although this whiteness does not manifest itself on the skin.

--Texture, consistency, irritation--
No irritation occurred when using this product.

--Scent--
Fruity and sweet initially, without being overbearing. This mellows out into something muskier later and is somehow unusual yet traditional. Tropical fruits are suitably embodied without you smelling like a bumblebee trap or like a six-year-old; the blend is really successful for all women who want a little hint of summer all year round.

--Longevity--
Better than I was expecting and definitely better than the Lolita Lempicka fragrance that I tested earlier; it easily makes it to lunchtime, so you shouldn't need to apply more than once a day (perhaps if you are going out in the evening).

--Value for money--
Excellent. While this can be found cheaper than £31/50ml all over the internet, I think I'd still pay the full price if I had no choice. A lovely summer fragrance that is beautifully set off by its shower gel and body lotion equivalents.
