Escada's Moon Sparkle Eau de Toilette Review

Escada’s Moon Sparkle Eau de Toilette ($52.00)

A fruity floral fragrance, with sparkling strawberry and red apple notes. Top notes: strawberry, blackcurrant, citrus cocktail, red apple. Middle notes: sweet pea, freesia, jasmine, rose. Base notes: raspberry, musky notes, sandalwood, dry ambery notes.

What makes it worth it: If you love something fun, flirty, and utterly feminine, you’ll adore Escada’s Moon Sparkle eau de toilette with its candy-fruity smell. I could distinctly smell the scent of fresh strawberries with the slight aromatic sweetness of apples as a lingering note. I really enjoy being able to catch the scent of the different notes used in the fragrance, because it means they did an accurate representation of their fragrance.

Why you might pass on it: It may be too sweet-smelling or fruity-smelling for some. Those with a preference for muskier, woodier scents will find this one too overpowering to easily transition to.

Find this fragrance at department store retailers, as well as This is also available in a body lotion and shower gel. Also available is Moon Sparkle for Men in an eau de toilette spray as well as a shower gel.

I love Escada perfume. It’s interesting how each perfume smells so similar but completely different. I know that sounds lame, but I just know that I trust the scent of Escada in that I don’t usually need to smell it first. I always enjoy it’s fruity-yummy scent. To answer your quesion Beauty 365 Blog, I haven’t smelled it, but I’m gonna assume it’s similar….Can’t wait to try it! I love Rockin’ Rio.

Ohh, a new Escada perfume! They converted me from “Can’t be bothered” to “Can’t go out without it”.
Let’s see, I just finished Pacific Paradise and I’m now using a huge bottle of Sunset Heat. I save Magnetism for going out at night. I gave my mother a bottle of Escada for Women and steal it sometimes. 🙂 I won’t even bother listing all the others before these (the Sport range, Sentiment, Sexy Graffiti, etc).
I was going to pick up Rockin’ Rio, but it has not been available in Duty Free shops. Now I have a new one to buy! And I don’t even have to smell it!

This is my new favorite fragrance. I couldn’t stop smelling myself when I tried it in Nordstrom. It smells delicious! I prefer sweeter, fruitier scents. I’m an Escada fragrance fanatic. I’ve been looking for their Tropical Punch perfume and it’s so expensive since it was a limited edition fragrance, like Moon Sparkle is. They sell it at Macy’s now, too. I am going to get a huge bottle ASAP! 😀
