Calvin Klein Escape
After reading reviews of the long lost favorite on MUA as well as other websites, I reasoned that when CK's perfume line was taken over by Coty, the formulas cheapened. Therefore i got "classic" Escape pure parfum in a dash bottle online only to be safe. And I'm surprised! It is really a lot less sharp and head ache-y than Perpetuity, annually which I am only able to put on a few times, even though it's a similar rose note.
I concur with the reviewer who remarked the colour of the juice should actually be aqua. On me, Escape has an extremely clean marine/saltwater note, in addition to some not-too-sweet summer melons. There's also a wonderful tea rose treaty. The general effect is lilting, and tidy, pretty, using a fine but entrancing sillage.
I am going to state that I have smelled the variation with this in EDP/body lotion giftsets at Marshalls of Coty, and that i discovered it to be artificial and a lot more unpleasant. I strongly advocate the original parfum.
