Escada Joyful Perfume Review

1.11.2015

Escada Joyful - happiness in a bottle

For Christmas, I receive the gift of happiness in a bottle, Escada Joyful. It's the latest fragrance from Escada and also my first ever Escada perfume. Inspired by the moment of joy one feels when receiving a bouquet of fresh-cut flowers, the fragrance reveals a beautiful, fresh pink peony by dewy white florals, awakening an inner feminine happiness. That's how I feel when I receive flowers from my best boy friend (guy friend hello!) Jeremy at the stroke of midnight on 31/12/15. He excused himself for a moment, saying he needed to talk on the phone outside. I was so worried we wouldn't be able to countdown together. Suddenly he walked in smiling at me, holding a bouquet of my favourite flowers, white lilies. I just have a thing for white lilies, or wild lilies with a hint of pink. I burst into a volcanic pile of laughter, smiling while scolding him and crying at the same time. It was the best New Year and Birthday countdown in my life. I was also wearing this scent :)

smile at the world, and the world smiles back

"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away" - a quote that I have been keeping close to my heart because I strongly believe that life is made beautiful with unforgettable moments such as mine on my birthday. Being a year older, a year wiser doesn't necessary make us old farts but instead, I find that learning to accept life as it is and how beautiful it is, makes me younger. That being said, I feel I should enjoy my life and be happy. Whether it is being with positive people, doing the things I love, having the things I love and be spontaneous like going to Genting for coffee out of the whim with my friends.

As such, I find inspiration in this bottle inspired by happiness which I wear almost everyday. You can see the bottle is already 1/3 gone *lol*. I'm a sucker for fragrance that's floral, fruity or sweet. If I could describe Escada Joyful, this is what I imagine when I spritz and smell it for the first time.

a sweet, delicate floral scent

The Scent?
A burst of pink white flowers, with sweet candies. It's the perfect scent to wear on Christmas with it's delightful floral, light and delicate. Magnolia oil and pink peony with a newly synthesised moss note - Florimoss which adds depth to the fragrance, giving it a transparent creamy character.

Top Notes
The fragrance opens with blackcurrant sorbet which releases a gently icy sensation to the skin. Energising notes of mandarin and melon give the fragrance a free-spirited, playful energy.

Heart Notes
The fruity accords are balance by a twist of violet leaves, adding sparkly and shimmer to the fragrance, while pink peony adds a light vitality. Natural Magnolia oil creates a new wet freshness, which is deepened by the perfect blend of cyclamen, and peppering pink freesia.

Base Notes
The warm dry down features a unique ingredient - Florimoss, projecting an earthy tone wrapped by the familiarity and creaminess of sandalwood and the rich warmth of honeycomb - adding a natural depth to the floral tones.

beautiful modern bottle with a pink jewel crown

simplicity, femininity & happiness

The bottle or flacon as they called it is designed to evoke the skyscrapers in the city and opportunities that comes with the city life. The top, is a pink jewel crown, wrapped in gold finish. The iconic 'double E' rest at the neck of the bottle while the transparent glass body housed the pink liquid of joy. It's feminine, it's confident, it's just made for us girls who wants to go out and have fun, be happy and well maybe flirt around a bit.

Though the scent is my favourite sweet flirty one, it doesn't last long for a Eau De Parfum. After an hour or so, it lingers off leaving a warmth tone. I do wish it could last longer because it's such a darling to me. I may not repurchase this because it does not last considering the price, but sigh the scent is ever so lovely when you put it on.

P.S: if you're looking for a gift to make someone happy, why not happiness in a bottle?
