Must have.
This is a sweet fruity green aquatic scent that's still manly...somehow.
If you haven't smelled this before, go for it.
It's a nice scent...
Don't you love it when a blind buy goes well?!
I can't wait to use this during the spring and summertime, drinking some lemonade, while wearing shorts & a tee shirt.
Maybe walking on the pier.
Anyway, that's where I see myself using this frag.
I used six sprays...both wrist, back & front of my neck, my chest and on my shirt.

A Delightfully Sharp Summer
This perfume immediately caught my attention the first time I sniffed it. It's sharp, fresh, and powdery, supporting a tropical fruit tone. The herbs remain in the background. As it settles, the aquatic and eucalyptus notes become more prominent yet still ancillary to the melon-mango-citrus melange. Escape is slightly sweet and delightfully sharp.

I love this perfume for the summer. It exudes a masculine freshness that is disparate from the typical summer citrus-aquatics.

Escape always projects enough to turn a few smiling heads and has fair longevity. I've been told that I smell "yummy" when I've been hugged while wearing this fragrance. Who doesn't like to smell yummy?

One of my first scents
Escape was one of my first scents. I bought it in 1996 and at that time i was in love it. It's a real nice release from CK that remains great untill now.

It's an all-year-around fragrance, but works better in hot months. Fruity and fresh, definetely worth it.

I smell mostly fruits such as melon and also lots of herbs/spices.

The scent of the Australian bush
While I'm usually one for darker and sexy scents on a man, I really do appreciate Escape for Men.

This fragrance is very Summery and fresh. However instead of being Summery in a citrusy sense, this is more accustomed to being green, spicy and slightly aquatic.

The melon and mango notes make the scent a little sweet but the strong herbs and spices keep the scent masculine.

The eucalyptus note in Escape is rather strong, and for all those fellow Australians out there, or people who have visited our country, the scent is very much like the Aussie outback in the middle of Summer, with large stretches of land covered with Eucalyptus gums, dry brown grass and rich, fertile soil. To me this is the scent of a rugged bushman. Since I grew up in the bush, Escape is comforting and natural for me.

Also, like the female version of Escape, there is a subtle oceanic quality, rather like sea salt lingering softly in the background. Certain parts of this fragrance certainly remind me of the beach.

All in all, Escape really doesn't get the credit it deserves. Although popular, very rarely will people see the composition itself, which is exquisite. I do really love this on a man. One of my favourite Summery male scents by far.
