Escada Island Kiss 2011 Fragrance Reviews

Island Kiss is somewhat toned down compared to Escada's other tropical editions. Mango, magnolia and passion flower notes are prominent on my skin.

Beneath the fruitiness there's a cool/aquatic undertone to it, perhaps due to magnolia and musk? It made me think of Elizabeth Arden's Mediterranean, which I'm not a big fan of.

I am a fan of Escada though and have never been let down by their fragrances, but I have to admit this was a letdown. It even gave me a headache, which I never get from Escada fragrances!

Interestingly enough Island Kiss lost 6 notes in the remake - that's a significant difference!

The other two Escada's remakes of 2011 (Sexy Graffiti & Rockin' Rio) had only minor changes made to them.

Why change it so much? Doesn't it become a totally different fragrance?

This one seems to have greater longevity than the other Escada summer scents I have. It's been 7 hours and I can still smell it. Very nice. There certainly is a time and place for these light, uncomplicated EDTs.

It's one of those floral fruity sweet perfumes. I didn't find anything that would make it more special compared to other sweet floral-fruity fragrances.
I think it's all mango and some magnolia but no musk, wood notes or red berries.
A little offensive at the beginning.
Maybe suitable for teenagers.

I love how this fragrance smells on paper, it's quite nice, nothing too special but a sweet fruity summer smell that is very easy to wear. Well, on my skin it's nothing like that, the citrus starts acting up and it's not pretty. On me this scent is very strong and more apropriate for a summer night.

Delicious. One of my coworkers wears this one, and I love working by her. Mango is the most prominent note, while there is an orange and floral essence around it. It is sweet but not cloying in any way. Island Kiss is a soft, pleasant, and simple fragrance which seems to have the ability create a blithe ambience.

Honestly, it's probably the mango, but I smell pineapple. And then just peach and flowers. It's a cute scent, but very familiar. Of course if you had to classify it, you'd say it's more of a summer scent, but I like the way it behaves on my skin against the chilly air.

This is perfect for summer! Clean and sweet. Fruity and fresh. I spray this on during the day and still get whiffs of this the next day!!!! I love it! It is a fun and youthful scent that is appealing to the nose.
This is not bitter or sour AT ALL, like some are saying!

Island Kiss is a very sharp sour/sweet fruity scent,the first notes I get from this are lots of mango and some orange in the background. When it has dried down there is some muskiness to it and the fragrance becomes less sharp. The scent stays very close to the skin and only lasts for about 1-2 hours on me. Personally I don't particularly like this scent as it gives me a headache sometimes. I definitely prefer the other two perfumes which Escada re-released along with this one (Sexy Graffiti and Rockin' Rio).

At first I smell a burst of mango and a bit of orange, then the mango becomes a bit softer and I smell some flowers. At first sniff it's really good, but it doesn't take very long to become too syrupy for my taste. It smells kind of cheap to me... Staying power didn't impress me either. I remember when they released Pacific Paradise, I liked it so much, I wish they'd bring it back!

When I bought this it was the last bottle of Island Kiss in the store. This is definitely a summer fragrance, as what I smell whenever I wear this one is mango and citrus. It's not very strong and the lasting power isn't the best, but I still love it and I'm really glad I got it before they were all sold out.

I bought this accidetally while looking for the original I had years and years ago.

It's not exactly the same and not as good.

I found the original at a fleemarket so I compared them side by side.

The older one is sweeter, the new one is sharper.

When they discontinued the one I loved I was very bereft. Took me forever to find replacements.

I love Island Kiss! I bought it this spring for my 21th birthday as a present for myself and have absolutely adored it since.

I'm not a person to care about seasons in fragrances. I wear what I want to wear be it sunny or snowy, and so I wore Island Kiss on this grey, cold, rainy day. It really lifts my mood! How can someone be blue when there is something like this to sniff?

Very sweet and fruity, just the way I mostly like my fragrances. I even get the tiniest hint of aquatics, though it might be just the overall freshness. On the other hand, it doesn't change much if at all. What you smell at first is pretty much what you get.

Many of Escadas summer scents smell pretty much the same. When this is gone, I don't think I'll keep mourning for long. I just buy a bottle of some other Escada!

Starts out great, sour and crisp and refreshing, dries down to sweet, sweeter and sweeter still.. until it is gone, in 2 hours. This is super, wish it would last longer :(

I got a sample in the mail to see if it was true... was Island Kiss coming back and would it smell the same?? If you are the fan of the original have no fear! The reproduction is spot on. I personally could not find any difference.

A tangy, strong, fruity, very beachy summery fragrance. Uplifting, spunky, flirty is how I would describe it. Very fruity sweet more than I would ever call it sugary sweet. It's basically a tropical fruit salad of mango, passion fruit, pineapple and an injection of lemon/lime to give it some extra pop.

This too has a sour sweetness to it, maybe its the passion flower, that mixed with tropical is alright but i cant get over the sourness to it
Maybe if they put a orchid instead?
overall its pretty good

Escada Island Kiss is the most magnificent mango scent you will ever smell! This is a fruit bomb of passion flower and sweet mango with white peach and blonde woods in the dry down. Makes me want to sail the Caribbean! Perfect for summer!

Bright and joyful summer fragrance by Escada!

Most of all I feel the orange, mango, peach and passion flower notes in it.

It smells similar to Sunset Heat and Rockin' Rio 2011 by Escada, too, by the peach note.

I like this fragrance! This orange feeling joy can make the summer more fun by bringing the good mood:) Perfect for a vacation on the seaside!

I'm not certain as to how this fragrance compares with the original Island Kiss, but this new release is definitely a pleasant one. I'm enjoying this fragrance far better than the re-released version of Sexy Graffiti.

I'm guilty of mocking Escada and their fruitiness sometimes, although I must admit that they compose sweet and fruity scents well. Island Kiss is what I'd call pretty and flirtatious. The perfect Summer scent for a girl that just wants to have fun.

Island Kiss opens with sweet, juicy mango and orange. I like that it smells sugary without becoming too syrupy and thick. It actually has a slightly clean feel to it, like the scent of a good quality shampoo. This fragrance thankfully doesn't turn sour on the skin.

I can see how some could classify this fragrance as an aquatic, as it does evoke a sense of beachy-ness, however I picture a sweet, fruity beverage, like an exotic cocktail when I smell Island Kiss. It's a fruity floral to my nose, from beginning to end.

The composition is a little linear, although it doesn't bother me in the slightest. The less complex scents are during Summer, the nicer they wear during the heat of the day, at least in my opinion. I would quite happily wear Island Kiss, and this is coming from someone that usually detests fruity scents. If that doesn't shout out my praise, then I don't know what will.

The sillage is fairly average, however I found the longevity much more promising. It lasted a lot longer than I thought it would. Unfortunately, like every other Escada release, Island Kiss is a limited edition, so I would snap it up while you still can.

This perfume is definitely not sophisticated in the least, but it's a fun fragrance for Summer if you love fruity scents. Sometimes I feel like fruity perfumes like this are overpriced, simply because they don't last very long and I could probably get a similar-smelling body spray from the mall for under $15.
Anyways, I do like this perfume, but I only bought the purse spray because I have a hard time commiting to scents that smell like any other fruity perfume on the market. This one reminds me of the original Ed Hardy for her with it's mango-y floral composition. Escada Island Kiss is a little fresher and lighter smelling, but still not very memorable. I like that the passion flower kindof smooths out the fruityness and keeps it from being entirely candy-like.
This perfume is fun but not interesting or unique. I like it, but would not repurchase.

Somewhere I mention that the original Island Kiss is much better than this, but yesterday in a mall I was sprinkled with plenty of this fragrance and radically changed my mind. It's an incredible perfume, citrus-fruity, slightly floral. Crisp and refreshing fruit cocktail. I love passion fruit, which is the main ingredient in this fragrance. This fragrance is suitable for summer, tropical vacation, filled with many emotions and good mood.
Even my man, who prefers flower scents appreciate it very high.

It's very fruity and tropical. To me it smells like melon and a bit of papaya. Although is very fresh and summery, to me is very sweet...I would prefer it a little more watery and less sugary.
I must also say that it has a good lasting power and it's my favourite one of the trio.

Out of the limited edition 2011 scents, this one is my second favorite. I like the scent so much, it's very fresh and not overly sweet. However, I JUST sprayed this on myself an hour ago and I can't even smell it on my wrist. That alone will be the reason why I won't be buying this perfume :(
If only it lasted....

EDIT 4/30/12: This is now my favorite scent but the lasting power still sucks! I'm not sure if I want to buy a full bottle of this yet.

Aquatic, juicy, sweet. I smell a lot of mango and pineapple which I really enjoy in its juiciest phase but this lasts about 30 minutes before drying down to a slightly fruity musk.

Island Kiss could be Cool Water's little sister because of the aquatic, fruity-tropical vibes. Island Kiss is much sweeter and more lovable I think. If only it lasted longer... Cute new edition though :)

Tested this one today. First it reminds me of Marine Groove (which I have) but after a while I noticed the difference. This is not so strongly a passion fruit scent, it has other fruit, too.
It is very sweet in a way I don't like. Not for me.

I love the scent but the sillage as mentioned before and the longevity is just bad, i bought this for my wife and after a while i couldn't detect it at all, the quality sucks but the price isn't that high either, so i dunno, maybe it's fair, on the other hand, you need to spray a lot of it to make it work, so.

Smells a LOT like Sexy Graffiti, but this one has a little sour touch to it wich makes me love it a little more.


9/10 for the scent.
5/10 for longevity.
4/10 for sillage, it's just bad.

this is not quite the same as the original one, like previous user mentioned it is indeed a softer and turned down version of the original "Island Kiss". It shares some similar notes with the rest of reeditions but is indeed more aquatic. Light tropical-aquatic scent it is. This i my second favorite from reedition series. But sillage and lasting power could be better.

This is a softer lighter version of Pacific Paradise by Escada. It's great since PP is discontinued but if you have one you really don't need the other. This also smells very similar to the yellow bottle Rock in Rio, I wish their scents were a little more diverse, this keeps me from purchasing all of them.

If I had to pick one. This one would be it.
