Summary: Acqua Essenziale is, as others have noted, a typical acquatic. The opening notes are lemon and basil and smell virtually indistinguishable from Ermenegildo Zegna's Acqua d'Estate Essenza 2007 version, with perhaps a bit more lavendar.
Summary: Boring aquatic I used a sample today. As i love Alberts work in CK one, Acqua di Gio and his outstanding Lanvin Homme i find his later fragrances pretty generic and dull for example this one. Its fresh,minty,aquatic and sunny, its OK but thats it. It is OK...
Summary: Don't bother The fresh, aquatic part is nice enough, but it is drowned (no pun intended) out by a wave (no pun intended) of macho, cloying, cologne-y blandness. Acqua Essenziale is being massively marketed at the moment.
Summary: Very nice. Did a skin test in Macy's and was pleasantly surprised. Haven't bought it yet but plan on it. Definitely not offensive in the least. Longevity was just ok, about 4 hours, sillage was great on me for the first few hours.
Summary: Really close (expecially at the beginning) to the classic and decently appointed Lanvin Pour Homme (citrusy, metallic, slightly ozonic, woody, orangy, minty and vaguely dusty) and yes, to the better blended, more natural and bracing Bleu Chanel.
Summary: WOW! Citrus, Geranium, and Patchouli...how original... NOT. It is a generic inoffensive aquatic/citrus fragrance that blends in with the millions of others. Kind of like Versace Pour Homme, or any number of others.
