Agua Del Sol by Escada Review

There are lots of reasons why I look forward to summer; the warmer days, my annual trip to Cyprus and bikini shopping are among them but on the perfume front, it means a new Escada release for me to douse myself in like it’s limited edition – probably because it is! It’s become as much of a summer tradition as barbecues and rainy bank holidays. This year, their new fragrance is called Fiesta Carioca but I chose to firstly review last year’s offering, Agua del Sol since it is one I’m familiar with and have had a chance to properly test run.

The blend is predominantly fruity with only a hint of rose, although it’s described as a floral-fruity mixture. It has some unusual top notes, namely sorbet and ice-cream. This seems like a very broad description since sorbet and ice-cream can come in lots of flavours, so I’m not sure what to make of that but I certainly can’t smell anything that I would consider to be a frozen dessert. For me, this smells overwhelmingly of apricot and raspberry, which is pleasant and summery and would be perfect to wear on a sunny summers day.

The bottle is as funky and colourful as we’ve come to expect from Escada’s summer fragrances with a yellow tinged flanker at the top graduating into a sky blue shade at the bottom and a sweet pink flower motif on the front. It has moderate silage and I found it needed re-application after 3-4 hours. It’s available in 30, 50 and 100 ml in Eau de Toilette strength and can still be purchased at Amazon.
