NEW: Especially Escada Elixir






Especially Escada Elixir - £34*

When this little beauty arrived on my doorstep I was so excited! I love Escada fragrances and I've been meaning to check out their Especially Escada line for a while now, how lovely is the packaging? Beautiful.

The new fragrance, Especially Escada Elixir, is an amped up version of the original Especially Escada perfume which is perfect for evening wear. It's based around the rose but with added musk and vanilla to give a more luxurious night time feel, plum and prune to add a rich sweetness and ambrette seeds to freshen it all up. I actually can't smell the rose in this fragrance at all when I first apply it, I get the vanilla musky scent once it's settled into my skin with a touch of freshness that makes it different to anything else I've tried. I usually favour a more fruity scent but this is in a completely different league, it smells sophisticated and grown up. It lasts a long time on my skin, I can normally still smell it the morning after I've applied it - this is when the rose in the fragrance comes through for me, it's a delightful thing to smell first thing in the morning.

This fragrance is being added to my list of favourite perfumes, it signals a change in my tastes and maybe that means I'm growing up a little bit. I also adore the packaging, it's so pretty, I love the gold mixed with the dark pink. It looks classy and modern on my dressing table and adds something a little bit different.

Have you tried any of the Escada perfumes?
