Now that the weather is getting pretty hot and sunny, this would be the best time for me to tell you about this Limited Edition ESCADA Fiesta Carioca fragrance. Think of the summer, beach holiday, the smell of sunblock, the coconuty smell of piña colada. Think of all the tropical fruits you are enjoying by the beach while sun tanning. That’s what ESCADA Fiesta Carioca scent reminds me of.
The ESCADA Fiesta Carioca is a limited edition release in honor of the 25th anniversary of ESCADA’s Summer Limited Edition fragrances. It is released in celebration of life, summer and passion. The beautiful ombré bottle really does embodied summer. The fragrance overall was inspired by Brazilian carioca and their unique zest for life and colorful festivities. Hence the bottle flacon.
When it comes to summer, you will not get away with fruity floral scent. Before I even unbox the fragrance, I already knew this is going to be a sweet fragrance. I was right indeed. the ESCADA Fiesta Carioca is a fruity floral perfume to rejoice in an endless summer. This limited edition scent also pays a tribute to ESCADA’s vivacious fashion heritage and to one of the perfume industry’s most successful summer fragrance line. That’s right. No one does a good summer fragance as good as ESCADA. They are the expert.
Gotta love the vibrant print on the box packaging. It sent the messages out. At a glance, one would what this fragrance is all about – celebration, summer and festivities. I can’t tell exactly what is the juice color as the bottle are afterall in an green and pink ombre. All I can tell you is that this is a really sweet scent. Is it my scent preference? Nope. But, having said that, this is not bad at all. At least I didn’t feel dizzy or nauseas 😀
The scent opens up with a luscious Brazilion passion fruit accord, surrounded by succulent European red raspberry notes, a nod to the brand’s German roots. It’s heart note is a vibrant passion flower, that is blended with orange flower for that hint of warmth. The scent is said to dries down to a musk and cedar wood base. I can pick up the fruity and warmth scent but I can’t detect the floral or the musky cedar wood scent. However, thanks to all the passion flower, musk and cedar wood, the ESCADA Fiesta Carioca has become a wearable scent for me, for I am not a floral scent type of girl. People around me tells me I smells good, that I smells like summer enticing. Now, that is a compliment! 😀
