Please understand that this website is not affiliated with any of the perfume companies written about here in any way, it is only a reference page and repository of information for collectors and those who have enjoyed the classic fragrances of days gone by.

One of the goals of this website is to show the present owners of the various perfumes and cologne brands that are featured here how much we miss the discontinued classics and hopefully, if they see that there is enough interest and demand, they will bring back these fragrances!

Please leave a comment below (for example: of why you liked the fragrance, describe the scent, time period or age you wore it, who gave it to you or what occasion, any specific memories, what it reminded you of, maybe a relative wore it, or you remembered seeing the bottle on their vanity table), who knows, perhaps someone from the company brand might see it.

Escapade by Shulton c1954

Escapade was launched by Shulton in 1954. It's manufacturer's promised that it would "shake your world a little."

Fragrance Composition:

There are no official notes, so I will take the chance to review some vintage c1960 toilet water to let you know what notes I detect. The deep floral bouquet is heady and spring-like. I would classify it as a floral chypre fragrance for women.

First off, a burst of vivid aldehydes and citrus notes mingle with the richness of roses and carnations, lily of the valley, ylang ylang and jasmine rest upon a woodsy base of sandalwood, musk, oakmoss, vetiver and amber.

The overall effect is bright, lively and romantic. The dry down is woodsy with a pronounced soft and powdery floral undertone. Much akin to L'Air du Temps by Nina Ricci and Joy by Jean Patou. Escapade also smells similar to Shulton's other fragrance, Friendship Garden.
  • Top notes: aldehydes, citrus
  • Midde notes: rose, carnation, lily if the valley, ylang ylang, jasmine
  • Base notes: sandalwood, oakmoss, musk, vetiver, ambergris and patchouli

Escapade was available in Perfume, Cologne, Toilet Water, Dusting Powder, Bubbling Bath Crystals, Liquid Petals Cream Perfume, and Cologne Stick.

Fate of the Fragrance:

It was discontinued around 1971. Today you can find vintage examples on ebay.
