Collection by Escada

Collection by Escada is a fragrance that's incredibly overwhelming on me in warmer weather but just perfect when the weather cools down.

Described by Nordstrom as a luxurious, warm, robust and sensual fragrance. The mandarin and prunella base produces the unexpected while a fizzy cola top note adds buoyancy to the musk.

The notes are mandarin, cola, jasmine, tuberose, sandalwood, tonka

It's a sweet fragrance, much more cola and vanilla on me but this isn't straight up Vanilla Coke. The florals play a bit part and the sandalwood warms it up a lot. There are times where I can smell the musk and other times where it's not found at all, same thing with the pipe tabacco scent which seems to be more roburst in warmer weather.

The staying power is really good and lasts all day on me, I find that a little goes a long way. I only like this is colder weather as it's just too heavy for me in warm, to the point where it will give me a headache.

Collection by Escada is available at Nordstrom for $75/1.7 oz.

I was lucky enough to nab the 2003 Escada Limited Edition Parfum for only $19.99 at Marshalls. It originally retailed for $100! I had even enlisted my sister in my search for these bottles and had given up on finding one until one night where I found two! My current bottle is marked as A 1810.

Hi best friend!

I scored this bottle at Marshalls too.
It is a pretty good fragrance.
I saw a bunch of these at TJMaxx over the summer. Great find!
Gah - I have got to limp my way over to TJMaxx soon! You keep finding the best goodies there!
