I got a sample at Sephora in a drawstring bag. This one really surprised me because it doesn't smell like a perfume, really -- none of that spicy smell that perfumes usually have. BUT it smells great. The main note is the King Alphonso mango from India. It also has citrus and some coconut, but I can't usually smell the coconut. I wore it to work and kept smelling my wrists like other people have said. I asked my friends whether I smelled like a mango and they all said yes and they all liked it. One of my friends who never wears makeup or perfume put some on, too. The scent goes away so I have to keep applying it, and I am quickly using up the sample I got,which is a first for me. I am starting to get into some of the others in the bag, though.
I adore this perfume and am so glad that other reviewers also can't help sniffing their wrists when they are wearing it, I totally do this! The scent is really fruity and light, and not at all sickly.
The only downside of this is that the smell is not too long lasting, but I read a tip to spray it on your bra and in your hair to make it last longer, and that really does work. I can't recommend this enough.
Escada LE Summer perfumes are my favorite fruity scents. They all kinda smell the same with a extra fruit to make them a little different. Taj Sunset has mango as the highlight fruit. When I first spray it, I get an bright, juicy, orange with a strong mango base. After it settles, it a slightly creamy, light musk, sheer woodsy with a strong mango candy base. Even though it is an EDT it last a long time on me, it's not strong but lingers and smells nice. To me, this is a perfect, fun, fruity, summery scent. In a nut shell, I think it basically smells like yummy mango candy. The price is fair, I paid $55 for a 1.6oz bottle. I am sure it will hit your local discounts stores for half price in six months. I love it so much, I don't mind paying full price.
I can't really put my finger on what it is about the fruity Escada scents I like so much, and I certainly don't think they are masterpieces, but there is something about the beachy, tropical, glamour pastiche of them I find just so hot. They are blingingly good, without actually being superbling - occupying in my mind a place between preppy privileged princess and cheap Californian vice girl. Escada don't use the best ingredients - not by quite a long shot - but still, I like them all the same. So far my favourite of the fruity limited editions has been Pacific Paradise.
These scents probably smell rather a lot alike to most people, but once you get used to the juiciness and sweetness, you can just about differentiate between one and another. Pacific Paradise was zesty and Moon Sparkle had more of a berry thing going on.
This one is heavy on the mango and pineapple, but I get some spicy, creamy lychee too. I don't get much coconut but just the milkiness of coconut, and it seems slightly spicier than its predecessors (whilst not being very spicy at all).
My beau was rather impressed by this, and since it smells of holidays abroad, I'm planning on using it for that purpose.
Smells absolutely gorgeous, really summery and fruity.
Pretty standard price for perfume so not much to say there.
Has really good staying power, when I first sampled this in the shops I could still smell it on my wrist the next morning!
One of my all-time favourite perfumes, everyone always comments on how good it smells.
I love how fruity this smells, but instead of making me feel like a little girl wearing it, it makes me feel really sexy!
I have a very hard time finding perfumes that smell good on my skin ! Most perfumes smell horrible on me ! But I LOVE , LOVE LOVE taj sunset !!! It smells fantastic on my skin which was a major bonus !! The first night I wore it I had a complete stranger keep sniffing me , and when I turned around he said " I'm sorry miss but you smell fantastic " it completely made my whole night ! My husband says it smells like a juicy fresh fruit salad ! It's the best ever !
I got a sample of this, dabbed some on my wrist, and delighted in the delicious, sugary, tropical fruit scent. I had to apply it a few times to really smell it because the scent is very light. After continuing to sniff, it dawned on me that Taj Sunset smells nearly identical to another fragrance I own...Bali Mango by Bath & Body Works. They both have that bright, sweet, tropical vibe. They smell practically identical with similar lasting power. So I suggest buying Bali Mango and saving yourself a lot of money, unless you're an Escada collector and just have to have it.
LOVE! Love! Love! this scent. Soooo yummy and fruity, I think it's the mango. It is very sweet, which I love, and is guaranteed to put you in a good mood. Although most Escada scents are fruity florals this one has an extra sweetness to it. I would love to get this in a lotion form but haven't found it yet.
Have to admit this one smells fabulous in the bottle and on the tester card. Loved so much almost bought the bottle without trying on me but refrained. Glad I did, because instead I got a sample from Sephora and then tried on myself and I feel like I am ready for a bathing suit sitting pool side with a margarita in hand. Can't put my finger on it, but seems more beachy/vacation in Florida type scent. Not a typical "perfume/feminine" scent. Very citrus like, and not sexy at all if that's what your looking for skip this one. I think there are many other scents similar to this at Bath and Body Works for much cheaper. I really don't want to go around smelling like a ball of Oranges/Mangos/Strawberries etc.. would much rather eat that stuff and prefer to smell like a woman! lol
