Generic rosy, sweetish, clean floral bouquet, with a mix of artificial floral notes (rose, freesia, and the like) and a touch of artificial fruits. A brief lemony top and a standard woody amber drydown. Thankfully not as sweet as the usual fruity floral syrup, not totally unpleasant, but utterly uninspiring.
(This was smelled as a part of a blind sniff.)
'S' I'm sure here is representative of a last-second swerve in direction as the Escada train switches tracks, narrowly avoiding the gaping chasm for which they seemed destined. While still a fruity floral like most all of their others, S is at least novel. The gourmand accord is subtle and for a while I can 'see' a candied rose dessert. The drydown is woodier and classier than the opening would have you believe. Part Rock 'N' Rose and part V Absolu by Valentino, and a little like Belle en Rykiel without the coffee tones. This is pretty good.
You're off probation for those horrid Moon Sparkle things, Escada. Just don't let me catch you doing that again.
Nice...but a bit boring. The opening is very alcohol and berries, like a cheap red wine with a pungent sweetness. Then the alcohol goes away and you are left with a familiar pleasnt aroma, but nothing to write home about. I am guess on female skin this will develop beautifully, but on a test card, this is about as interesting as all the recent Escada offerings: very one dimensional. The bottle is nice though.
