Every year when my Mum and Dad go off on their holidays they always buy myself and my boyfriend a bottle perfume and aftershave, its something they've done for years and it's become a bit of a tradition now he he. They recently jetted of to Majorca so I knew when they came home I'd more than likely have a bottle of something sweet smelling and I did bless them, it was a bottle of Escada's Limited Edition fragrance called 'Turqoise Summer' so I thought I'd review it for you all today.
Turquoise Summer is Escada's annual limited edition summer fragrance for 2015 and is said to be inspired by the serene atmosphere of summer, vivid orchards and butterflies. The perfume itself is a perfect everyday fragrance for the Summer months, it's literally bursting with fruit notes, and is complimented with uplifting floral notes, so if your a lover of the fruity scents girls you'll love Turquoise Summer. The scent opens up with top notes of juicy pineapple, strawberry and tutti fruity which give it a very tropical feel, before a vibrant floral bouquet blossoms in the heart of the fragrance. As Turquoise Summer drys down the base notes of creamy vanilla and blackcurrant really do come through and adds a subtle sweet element which helps balance things out which I really like. As for lasting power... Turquoise Summer lasts on me most of the day with just two spritz', I'm always getting whiffs of it during the day and it's sometimes noticeable where people will ask me what perfume I have on which is always nice.
As for the packaging... It's quite a classic, simple shape and the shade of the glass fades from a dark turquoise to clear which I think is pretty, I am slightly miffed that I didn't get the gorgeous pink butterfly that is meant to decorate the lid of the bottle, I looked into this more and it's because I have the 30ml bottle and only the two larger bottles have the pretty butterfly which quite frankly sucks but hey ho.
Overall I absolutely love Escada's Turquoise Summer, it's so fresh yet so fruity and isn't heavy in the slightest which is a major plus and makes it such an easy scent to wear, it's most definitely the perfect scent for the Summer and I've been obsessed with it since I got it, so a big thumbs up to my Mum for picking out a good'un!
Whats your favourite scent for the Summer months beaut's?? I'd love to know.
