Born in Paradise the captivating new 22nd limited edition fragrance from Escada.

Inspired by the famous Pina Colada cocktail, the ESCADA Born in Paradise perfume delivers an enchanting blend of pineapple and coconut milk, shaken with the aqueous and acidulous notes of watermelon, green apple and guava and enhanced with woody, musky and creamlike undertones. Exuberant in character, the fragrance instantly releases tantalisingly mouth-watering fruity scents and an infectious carefree feeling often inspired by tropical escapes – making it the prefect summer fragrance to transport you to paradise." (Press release). Born in Paradise was launched in 2014.

Wow. I love this so much. Makes me feel happy and already on holiday when I'm wearing it. It is a lot more subtle in the fruity stakes than the usual Escada perfumes and the coconut is not overpowering like some coconut scents. I've been on fragrance direct today and purchased the 100ml and the 150ml body lotion. Beautiful summer scent. Well done Escada and I hope that they do not discontinue this as I will be purchasing more.

Delicious yummy sweet perfume. It excites senses. So summery, I fell in love with the first smell. Next day went back to the perfume store to buy it. Only 28 Euros the 30ml bottle, great buy I will enjoy it this spring-summer!

I would really warn anyone against blind-buying it. Regardless the raving reviews this stuff really works differently on everyone. To me it smells pretty rancid and more like those cheap car air fresheners cab drivers on their review mirrors..

Smells like an fruit ice lolly. Simple, sweet, linear in smell - doesn't develop just slowly fades away. Unsophisticated and unremarkable, yet still pleasant and easily wearable on a hot day.

This opens fruity, sweet, gummy and yummy with a delicious candy blend of the watermelon, guava and pineapple. It really smells just like tropical skittles. The sweetness subsides a little and it becomes fresher with the added coconut but still just as delicious.

I love this. It smells just as fun as summer should be. I feel, however, it dries too quickly. Whilst I can still smell it up to four hours it becomes close to the skin too soon.

None the less, I'll def be getting this for summer.

I get a sweet, fruity, coconuty smell from it. I into gourmands and this smells like skittles or starburst. Defintely a warm weather fragrance, not so much for cooler weather. It's refreshing and sweet like a beach vacation where you're relaxing on the beach while having a little umbrella drink.

Very pina colada, has a somewhat 'thick' quality to it and is very creamy. Personally it appears to be way too sweet to be worn in the summer. It will definitely not cool you down and I feel like the sweetness is to the extent that you could attract various annoying insects.

Love the packaging but the scent is not suitable for a hot summer for me.

My first thought was this was just another sunscreen scented perfume, but I asked for a sample at sephora in spite of it. And then I found myself wearing the sample every day until it was gone. When you wear it, the brashness dissipates and you get this mild coconut water pineappley warm scent that doesnt overpower you. It doesnt last long, but then you catch hints of it here and there later in the day. Actually, I decided after a week of trying it that i loved it, and better just go back and get the big bottle before it's discontinued.

I like this a lot but if I compare with Taj Sunset, I like Taj Sunset better as it has more characters. In my opinion Born in Paradise has quite straight- forward scents, there is common tropical/fruitiness with other brand's fragrances i.e. Britney Spears'.

This is more powdery than Taj.
Lasts quite long on me without being heavy (I don't like anything with heavy base notes)

Just coming back from sun holidays this reminds me of the heat in the tropical air of my holidays.

Should I buy or not, that's the question !

TIGI Rockaholic "Livin' the Dream" shampoo, is that you?!
(Reminds me a little of the The Body Shop's old pomegranate body butter too!!)

On me this is all about the pineapple and coconut.
Heaps of pineapple and coconut with an exceedingly hefty helping dose of sugar.

I don't think that it smells like pina colada, but it does put me in mind of an alcohol free version of pina colada.

I don't smell any watermelon here, but I do get a hint of the apple trying to come through.
I believe that the sugary sweet note is probably the guava, which adds extra tastiness to the scent.

Slightly sour and nutty.
A young, vibrant, fresh, light and inoffensive, sugary summery scent. Definitely appears to be intended for holiday/beach wear.
Admittedly overpriced. So, if you like it, wait for a sale and then be the only one wearing it some other summer.

Tested this a few days ago & let me tell you it has nothing to do with their previous edition pacific paradise. This smells exactly like pina colada, a strong mix of pieapple & coconut with a heavy base of vanilla, making the mix creamy like a thick layer of tropical scented cream. I'll not add this fragrance to my collection it's not my style, I prefer sexy gravity & I have it in my collection if you want to know what my taste in fragrances looks like.

i was surprised that papaya and banana weren't on the list of notes, because that's what i smell ... and maybe a teensy bit of coconut. fun and beachy, but as with every other Escada fragrance i've encountered, the sillage is embarrassingly bad

I'm a long time devotee of Avon's Tahitian Holiday and this is very similar - great for the Summer but the typical Escada problem of not very long lasting.

I don't know why this has had as many bad reviews as it has. I am a long time Escada colletor so couldn't wait to get my hands on this. I was slightly hesistant after reading all of the reviews on this page though...
Anyway, it is already in my top 3 Escada fragrances. It is different from the rest of their perfumes. It has awesome lasting power and lingers in any room I have been in (not sprayed it in) and I have had several complements from strangers in passing saying they loved my scent and asked what it was.
I ordered the 100ml bottle from an awesome site which came with a free gift - a cocktail kit - which is super cute. This is definately a summer fragrance and for me coconut is the most prominant note.

I;ve never thought that I would buy full bottle of Escada. I always found all great smelling, but never really want to spend money on them. But GOD this one was love at first sniff and I needed to have it. As I tested it with my bro, we laughed because it reminds us on Hubba Bubba bubble gums we loved as kids. It;s so "free" and yummy. It evokes some childhood memories and somehow the feeling of freedom. It;s sweet, juicy and milky - the coconut and little "airy" or better said aquatic - probably the watermelon. Damn it;s just limited. It;s addictive and will be good for all occasions. Longevity and sillage are imo great. You scored ESCADA!! :-D

This has finally hit my shores! I ran to try it out and its not that bad except that it smells quite similar to Taj Sunset with the coconut milky-ness even though it is not as strong so I think I actually prefer this to Taj Sunset. It is on par with Cherry in the Air which smelt quite good. It seems as if Escada is redeeming itself again after some recent and rather disasterous synthetic candy fruity releases. Even so I vastly prefer and miss the old Escada Scents from the 90s and early 00s.

I looked forward to testing this, but I was disappointed.
It was 60% watermelon, 20% apple and the remainder was just miscellaneous "meh."
No silliage to speak of and not much lasting power (which I was fine with).

Is it horrible? No. It's fruity. It's just not for me.

ETA: if I wanted to spend this much on a tropical fragrance that doesn't last, I'd choose Taj Sunset. This is no Taj Sunset. :(

I have noticed an interesting coincidence with Escada perfumes - they smell terrific in the bottle but ess so on the skin. When I sniffed it in the bottle I sure felt crazy about it but when I blew it on my wrist the scent turned out to be pretty generic and gone in no time.

Born in Paradise is an island scent. It's mostly a watery, musky coconut with a fruit salad mélange in the background. I smell crisp apple, light candy watermelon and pineapple. I think it will perform better in the summer than it does right now. It's a light fragrance.

Another one from Escada's bright summer perfumes. It's no surprise that it smells sweet, tropical and fruity. Pineapple is very outstanding in perfume. It reminds of childhood for some reason. It's strange, because I am not from a warm country where pineapples and watermelons can grow. I think this smells like candies and innocence. When I smell it, I think of running at the seaside, picking flowers and eating candies.

This frag probably smells nice----if I didn't have to press my nose to my skin to smell it, this has absolutely no silage whatsoever and the scent is disappearing as I write this review and I only spayed it half hour ago. The scent itself on initial blast smells like a cheaply made febreze air freshener, not bad, but not 80$ bottle good. The dry down is much better, it smells like Pina Colada rich coconut and fresh pineapple, very vacation and islandy. However be prepared to play where's waldo on your skin with this scent, because even body sprays have better longevity.

Pineapple punch that lasted fifteen seconds. Linear, anemic, and girly. So sweet I expected a sticky sheen where I'd applied it. Born in Paradise is such a wonderfully evocative name for a fragrance, accompanied by a beautiful bottle and juice presentation, but the scent just misses the mark (at least on me). As there are seemingly as many fragrances out there to try in the world as there are stars in the sky, I believe after sampling and being now disappointed by several Escada Limited Editions that it's high time to find a new beach. Next stop is L de Lolita Lempicka Coral Flower...

Finally it is available in my city! The minty color of the bottle is so summery. The sour opening scent has an appetizing effect. The following coconut scent is unlike the sweet creamy coconut note in other frags. Rather, it is sugary sweet, maybe too sweet. Kind of linear to me. The contrast of the sour opening and the super sweet drydown is somewhat awkward to my nose. I used to love the drydown of Escada's summer fragrances. However, it is not the case for this one. I actually prefer the opening. I am disappointed. Escada's last year summer fragrance, Cherry in the Air, is too syrupy sweet on my skin and this year Born in Paradise has a dull 'ugly' drydown. I am lucky to be able to hold my favorite Hippie Ibiza and Taj Sunset close to me. I keep hoping for a good one next year.

Very sour and fruity, I was so eager and even squeled when saw a tester in store. But...

I'm into fruity scents right now and by notes this had to be perfect.

It starts really sour-sweet and powerful, like a super concentrated juice with an overdose of lemon acid. My first thought was - oh! That smells pretty cheap!
I've smelled cheap fruity fragrances that smell so similar. My boyfriend liked it, but what does he know about a good scent xD

The question here is - where is the guava? I don't smell it here. [I actually can detect it now lurking somewhere when I actually wear the scent] Too bad, but overall this scent is wearable and pleasant. I quite like it and think of purchasing this perfume. It reminds me of pink Oriflame's Aloha, that's why I want it. It's like a lush version of Aloha.

+
Pleasant fruity scent
Longlasting
Has powerful sillage
Likeable to other people
-
Similar to previous LE (based on what others say)
There are alternatives
And a con for me personally - costs 74 eur in Europe?? It goes for 70 bucks in the US :(

UPD. Initially it can disappoint, but... I actually shelled 70 euro for a big bottle of this (always wanted one of Escada's LE, but all were not too tempting to me for years and I wanted something a la Pacific Paradise etc.) and when you wear it it's just so yummy, so much better than when I first tested it. Sour apple and pineapple so crispy and cheerful, and the coconut is really mellow and captivating. I can't get enough. The lasting power is good on me. When it gets to the base it is somewhat multivitamin juice like, but still very exotic and lush. If you like sweet perfumes you'll love this as well. It tickles my nose and makes me more hungry than I am.
P.S. Is not similar to Tahitian Holiday, I've had two bottles of that, not at all.

I find Born in Paradise to be sweet and soft, and I get a lot of watermelon over anything else. I can see myself wearing this for the upcoming summer, but I'm a little hesitant because I can get sick of coconut very, very easily, and there is definitely a piña colada flavour that stays throughout the entire wear. So as much as I find myself loving it, I'm going to have to be careful if I do decide to purchase one.

Smells like a paradise of sipping pina coladas! :> Not my kind of thing, but for those who like the Hawaiian glam frutti-tutti of beaches and sunny seas, it's perfect.

P.S. I only just read the official description of the perfume while on my way to write this review - so I know I seem to have repeated a lot of what they already said, but these were my first thoughts (uncannily, now that I think about it!)

I thought this fragrance would be worse. Smells just like virgin Piña Colada but without that creamy-milky sensation. In the store the shop assistant told me it reminded her of chewing-gum.
I m not sure I'd wear this but maybe i will give it a try in summer again. I've ordered a free sample from Escada's website two weeks ago but I m still waiting for it.

Wow I really love this fragrance. My all time favorite Escada fragrance is Pacific Paradise or whatever it was called. But this is so similar (to me at least) that I looove it! I want it! I loooove coconut! I'd love to smell like coconut all day. It would remind me of being on a tropical beach and make me so content. I like the cool watermelon scent of this. and the delicious green apple. and the delectable (delectable?) coconut with sensual sandalwood. I will definitely be making this part of my collection this summer.

Huge disappointment, cause I usually like summery Escada editions.
To my nose, it smells just like fruit salad. And after couple of minutes, it smells like coconut milk. Can't smell anything more, to be honest.
Born in paradise or bathed in coconut milk? That is the question.

When I saw this in the store I was super excited as it had pineapple and coconut in it, and I've been looking for a coconut fragrance for ever! However, after getting a sample and wearing it for a few days I've come to the conclusion that it smells like a cheap shampoo and the ONLY note I can't seem to find in it is coconut...very disappointed.

Ok, here we go...
Got this sample today a rainy, grey day.
I was at a departement store lurking around the perfume counters,
teasing myself- cause I am really trying to stay a no- buyer for
quite some time ahead now..
When purchasing something else the salesperson snagged this into my plastic bag and said...wanna dream about summer a day like this ?
I wonder if it said perfumeomaniac on my forhead or she had read my thoughts ;-)

First dab, first smell - fresh , VERY sweet as almost always with these flankers.
But....whats that vibe ???
Its..........La vie en belle, or Si Armani but fruitier ?
This doesn't meen to be a bad remark, they are both lovely it's just what my nose picked up.
Well , this fresh sweet strong punch ,punches you in the face but tones down and becomes more girl cologne candy sweet.
I was struggling to find coconut and the pineapple, but effortless.
Sadly this is quite linear. Its sweet , tangy juices and pinapple syrup sweet
but I don't find the roundness or freshnes for a coconut punch type of scent.
I like sweet scents yes - but this lacks some ingridients needed to get me to wanna buy this. I will try the sample some more , but will let go of the dream- the dream of ever falling for the escada summer flanker. No , this doesn't win my heart either and that actually dissapoints me, cause it started of good !
It is cute as said - sweet and will win a lot of of other hearts but
This is something , I'd rather drink actually...
If you love the type of scents I ' ve mentioned it is certainly for you to build yourself your own idea of 'born in paradise'

A fun spritz for summertime, something I'd wear for an afternoon of shopping or a trip to the beach but that's pretty much it. I think any more than that and it'd get on my nerves. It reminds me of the mid-90's Victoria's Secret Exotic Bouquet. I have a feeling that if it were a beverage, it'd be delicious.

One word.... "SUMMER" ... if you could bottle summer and put it in a bottle it would be this fragrance. I spritzed myself with this at my local Sephora and smelled it all day long while I was shopping. It is a GEM! I will definitely be buying this and wearing it for the summer time.

The pineapple and coconut remind me of laying out on the beach. There is a slight hint of musk and cedar that are extremely far in the back .

"Laying out on the beach in a wooden chair just soaking up the beautiful sunlight!"

I was blown away today when I already saw this in two different department stores here in Finland! New perfumes almost never get here this quickly so I was pleasently surprised. Naturally I almost ran to smell the tester when I saw Born in Paradise bottles at the perfume counter.

I feel like I need to test this some more to give a more in-depth review, but what I can tell from testing Born in Paradise once, is that it is indeed tropical and very delicious! Coconut is quite strong in this one, which is great for me since coconut is right up my alley! I like the blend of sandalwood, coconut and pineapple in the dry down. I was almost certain I could smell mango, and I was pretty surprised to see that there's none of that in this perfume. The lasting power isn't the best, but I only sprayed this on my wrist once and it lasted a decent amount of time.

Summary: If you've loved Escadas previous tropical/fruity/sweet summer scents, you'll propably love Born in Paradise as well.

I thought I would love this at first but now that I've used it for a couple of days my opinion has changed.

Firs of all: it doesn't last long at all! In less than 2 hours it's totally gone.

The fruity notes disappear 99% once the fragrance dries on your skin.
The coconut is too prominent and "powdery".
It reminds me of cheap cosmetics.

A disappointment, on top of it all I bought the largest, 100ml bottle

Really fruity and tropical. I'd say it's a sweet candyish perfume and there's supposedly no citrus in this but I get STRONG citrusy lemon notes in there. It's almost like a much sweeter more fruity version of Dolce Gabbana Light Blue. The drydown smells just like Herbal Essences coconut shampoo to me.

I have to admit I have never smelled an Escada scent and I've only smelled this on a strip but jeeze does it smell good! I will hunt this down and skin test it, I hope it smells just as good on skin as it does on paper (some do some don't). This would be an excellent summer scent, I love coconut and that is the main note I smell. Going to Ulta asap to give this a spritz.

Edited to add: duh, I have tried Escada scents before I liked Magnetism, though that one did smell better on the paper strip.

Got a much awaited chance to sample this today! Very coconutty, too much for my tastes as I get headaches from notes that are too pungent. In an hour it lessens though, and I believe the watermelon notes begin to appear, which is nice, but then it just becomes a nice scent that lacks the "oomph" that I try to look for in my fragrances. Unfortunately the lack of speciality and the initial hour of strong coconut is too much for me so I will pass :(

I tried this in sephora today and I like it. I sprayed twice on my wrist and I could smell the coconut and watermelon as I was shopping. On first spray, I could smell the watermelon and the coconut but the coconut was a bit more prominent and stayed for about 2 hours and after that, I could smell the sweet watermelony plum scent come out. It lasted for quite a long time; I could still smell it on my wrist 3 hours later. The dry down reminds me of Britney spears's midnight fantasy but not as intense.

Already available in tax free shops, so as a person who is collecting all Escada summer editions i had to have it naturally.

The very first spray is very yummy, blast of exotic fruits with a most promnent note of pineapple and guava, but within several minutes it transforms into a fresh coconut and watermelon mix. I don't smell much of the pineapple after 15minutes. Smell mostly strong coconut base.

Not much going on in here actually, the sillage is actuall quite soft and lasting power is quite good, almost 7hrs already ( but i have sprayed more than 5 times on my wrists). Slightly dissaponted at the moment, but since it is not the most propriate time of the year to wear this scent ( we have snow where live at this moment) i say i'm not giving it a fair review.

Guava, watermelon, coconut- if you like them, go for this one. Refreshing and is back to Escada traditional summer scents roots from the post 2002. Surely will be another bestseller, but for me "Taj sunset" and "cherry in the air" still had more character (not to mention the oldies from 90´s). I can´t smell much similarity to the Britney Spears´s "Island fantasy", just one moment betwen opening and middle stage it slightly has a resemblance, thanks to apple note which lasts only a shortest while, but that´s it.

UPDATE: 3 hrs later it becomes almost the same as the "Marine groove" and "Pacific paradise", same identical base: sweet and exotic.

UPDATE (later in the evening), the staying power is actually quite good, 5-6 sprays are lasting and lasting, maybe becasue it is cold outside and skin is no warm and not "eating" perfume, but i´m impressed actually. I get full 10+ hours

I was surprised to find this scent already in a tax free shop! So I gave it a quick sniff. This scent is very sweet as usual, but also fresher and more aquatic than the previous escada summer releases. Reminds me a bit of Britney's Island Fantasy.

I'm mad about anything turquoise so this one does it for me, definitely. What a lovely bottle! Fruity-aquatic content sounds fun and flirty and delicious which makes it the perfect summer frag, at least in theory ;)

I haven't smelt this yet, but I have a feeling it will be similar to Britney Spear's Island Fantasy

Escada always has great limited editions! Hmm, so far the only watermelon perfume I have and love is D&G's L'Imperatrice 3. I hope Born in Paradise is equally good, can't wait to try it!

With those colors i had hope that it would be some delicus coconut and some sweet sugar in it.
I guess i maybe then can layer it with my vs mist i have at home that contains beachy coconut and sugar cane.
