Review - Escada Cherry in the Air perfume

I couldn’t wait to try this new Escada edt! I grabbed a couple samples last week at ULTA.

I think this is a perfect spring scent! It’s soft and feminine, light and floral. Two spritzes of the edt lasted 5 hours on me, after that it was barely detectable. Considering it’s a delicate scent, and my skin eats perfume, that’s great lasting power!

According to fragrantica’s website, the top notes are sour cherry and raspberries, middle note is marshmallow and the base is sandalwood. It’s not a complex scent by any means. It’s easy to wear, and I think appropriate in most settings. I think because of it’s simplicity, this one would be a fun scent to layer with other perfumes. I’m thinking Dolce and Gabbana pour femme would be lovely…I’ll try and let you know! :)

I can’t say that its similar to anything in my collection. I’d give this a try if you are looking for a new spring scent! Have you tried any new scents lately?

Update - I tried the Escada perfume layered with Dolce and Gabbana pour femme (2012 edition) yesterday. It was perfect!! I would not compare the two fragrances, however they share a similar note and compliment each other very well! D&G pour femme has top notes of Neroli, Raspberry and Tangerine, a heart of jasmine and orange blossom. The base notes include Marshmallow, Vanilla, Heliotrope and Sandalwood. It’s sweet and sensual, without being cloying. It greatly increased the lasting power of the Escada Cherry in the air.

Review and Rave - Lisa Hoffman Beauty

I recently had the pleasure of receiving some samples from
Lisa Hoffman Beauty

First and foremost, I have to rave about the customer service! I truly think
it’s so important to have great customer service! I dealt with Amy, who was
professional, friendly and very quick to respond. She sent me some samples to test
right away.

My favorite is Tuscan Fig. The description from the Lisa Hoffman Beauty website:

Surrounded by vanilla bean, honeysuckle, coconut wood, and gardenia, Tuscan Fig entices you with its warm essence. Like your own secret treasure, this fragrance transports you to the most enchanting valleys, vineyards, and fruit groves of Tuscany.

Other scents offered are; Japanese Agarwood, Madagascar Orchid (my second fave!),
Tunisian Neroli, and French Clary Sage.

The website offers a variety of perfume, body lotions and wash, candles and
absolutely gorgeous and unique fragrance jewlery.

If you love unique fragrances and products, you will not be dissapointed with
Lisa Hoffman Beauty!

Thanks for reading!
