Dior Escale Aux Marquises Perfume Review

Dior Takes Us to the Tropics! (Scent-Wise, at Least)

If, like me, you love the idea of tropical scents but find that many of them smell a little cheap, then there's a nice new fragrance out that's definitely worth a sniff: Christian Dior Escale Aux Marquises ($66). It's a soft, gingery citrus floral that's pretty without being sweet like most tropicals. It opens smelling like ginger and lime, and then a real jasmine essential note comes in to create the body before it dries down to a soft but bright vanilla musk. Dior could easily have made this one a run-of-the-mill fruity floral, but I'm glad it didn't, because this scent is so much more ladylike and wearable than I expected it to be. Its low sillage also makes it perfect for wearing in the heat, and will transition nicely, I think, into the first couple months of sweater weather.
