Escada Joyful Eau De Parfum

The Escada woman is captivated by the beauty in the world around her, helping her to experience #JoyfulMoments and good fortune in return. International supermodel Miranda Kerr, with her confidence and effusive positivity, is truly the perfect ambassador for Joyful and the Escada brand.

"I love what the fragrance stands for – it's about seizing the small opportunities, and finding pleasure and joy in the moments that make up your day. For me, the scent conjures beautiful memories of hand-picking a fresh bouquet of flowers. It is enriched with undertones of earthy sandalwood and delicate pink peony which I absolutely adore, as peonies are one my favourite flowers!"
Miranda Kerr

Name: Escada Joyful Eau de Parfum
Price: RM 275 for 50 ml
Made in: UK

The Fragrance
Just because it is raining more often now does not mean that we can't break out fun and flirty fragrances right? Joyful is exactly that, and methinks it will do well all year long. It is unapologetically feminine and true to its name, joyous! It has fruity notes but all I can make out are the floral components *sheepish smile*

◆ Top notes: Blackcurrant, Mandarin, Melon
◆ Heart notes: Violet Leaves, Pink Peony, Magnolia, Cyclamen, Pink Freesia
◆ Base notes: Florimoss, Sandalwood, Honeycomb

You know how some scents give mature vibes whereas others younger? Well, Joyful falls on the young side for me. This is just me accounting my perception of it though; there is no better way to tell it is to your taste than to march to the department store/perfumery and spritzing it on yourself (liberally).

My only beef is it fades off in an inordinately short time. I fail to catch wisps of the fragrance after two to three hours... yup, not even when I plaster my nose to my wrist. Why do you do this to me?!

The Flacon
Inspired by the skyscrapers in the city, this bottle stands tall (statuesque, if you will). The icing on the cake is the gold finish topped by a pink cylinder. And let's not forget the iconic 'double E' logo embossed on the cap! It sets out to charm and it definitely fulfills its mission.

It is even more lovable when you see it in person; my pictures do it no justice.
