Scent Name: Especially Escada
Scent Description and Notes: “A luxurious and feminine scent, Especially Escada carries a joyful, spontaneous, and glamorous spirit. Inspired by the glistening scent of morning dew on a sparkling rose, Especially Escada says luxury, but in a modern and light-hearted way.
The fragrance opens with a sparkling top note of pear and combines with the exotic notes of ambrette seeds. A luxurious combination of rose and ylang ylang radiates a fresh and natural aura of floral joy and happiness. Light musky notes complete the scent, adding a subtle touch of femininity.

- ITV: It’s much lighter than I excepted with rose and ylang ylang being the most discernible notes. I do pick up a little musk, but not much after that. It’s definitely flora, though.
- Wet: The alcohol base here is pretty strong. Once it starts drying, I get pink rose, and copious amounts of it, ambrette seed, a pink musk, ylang ylang and just a hint of pear, but it’s only enough to just the rose, not ride along with it.
- Dry: Light, musky, and floral from the ylang ylang, the ambrette seed, then the rose. There still is a little sweetness from the fruit note, but when paired with the musk, it reads almost as a nice vanilla.
