Excerpt: Changeable aroma on paper does not sound like on my skin. On paper, the smell of synthetic and sharp, but it is necessary to put it on the skin as it becomes softer, there is little sweetness, synthetic pales into insignificance.
Excerpt: Freshness with apple notes in the beginning and later you get more oriental and powdery character. The base getting more coffee, cinnamon notes and sweetness of Tonka beans. Very unique concoction. This fragrance has a few different stage of opening. Quite long lasting.
Pros: Draws Compliments, Great Smell, Long-Lasting, Sexy
Summary: I returned to this scent that was a former favorite late last night after a long sabbatical to find, as before, the quickly enveloping fresh and deodorising citrusy fragrance of the bergamot and mandarin orange. Perfect for warmer days that are not too hot.
Excerpt: I use this parfume during spring and summer, goes well with the office clothes. It's very elegant. I'm also glad it's not weared by every other girl, like it happens with big labels like Chanel, Dior etc, so I treat Essential as truly mine.
Summary: love the fragrance....reminds me of Ambush, a perfume I wore many years ago. Some of the reviews had stated that Essential was very close to Wanted by Helene Rubinstein...not so...not even close. But I now have a new fragrance that I like a lot.
