Summary: I recently purchased Escada Island kiss at my sephora and fell in love. Ive always been hesitant to buy them because their summery fruity scents are limited edition and get discontinued every year when they put out a new one. Hating the idea of not being able to repurchase a perfume I love and having to resort to finding it and paying 30% more on amazon/ebay I've avoided them. Finally taking the plunge I purchased this scent and an glad I did!
Summary: This is a really pretty scent, very feminine and sweet. I love sweet, fruity light floral scents, however this turns a little soapy smelling on me, and the lasting power is HORRIBLE! Seriously, after about 15 minutes, the scent is completely gone on me. Because it turns soapy smelling on me and doesn't last, I wouldn't recommend this perfume.
Summary: I'm not certain as to how this fragrance compares with the original Island Kiss, but this new release is definitely a pleasant one. I'm enjoying this fragrance far better than the re-released version of Sexy Graffiti. I'm guilty of mocking Escada and their fruitiness sometimes, although I must admit that they compose sweet and fruity scents well. Island Kiss is what I'd call pretty and flirtatious. The perfect Summer scent for a girl that just wants to have fun.
