Summary: A graceful rider on a white horse is dashing through the morning mist on a beautiful spring day. The calm serenity of green scenery is surrounding her while the birds are greeting the arrival of the first light. The dawn is breaking, softly unveiling the mystery of a new day. The air is filled with a scent of fresh leaves, mist and a gentle scent of leather. This beautiful moment is captured perfectly in the soft, elegant and fresh scent of Balenciaga L’Essence.
Summary: I love this perfume! I used to get it at the department store, but it's much cheaper on Amazon. It's clean smelling and long lasting. I tend to like citrusy & woodsy smelling perfumes that are light and clean smelling without being too strong and powerful. It's a woman's perfume, but can easily be mistaken for a man's cologne. Don't know if that makes any sense to you or not, but it's the best way to explain the scent.
Summary: It's packaged wonderfully, however I am glad I did not get the expensive-bigger one. I think I'm still getting use to the fragrance. I love Narciso Rodriguez. I wanted a new fragrance for the fun of it. THe jury is still out. It is lovely though. Hmmmmm We shall see.
Summary: Wearing L’Essence provided a number of surprises and, fortunately, most of them were of the pleasant variety. The first surprise was the delicacy of this perfume. For some reason I had it in my head I was in for a big, purple, floral cloud. Instead, L’Essence opens with a very simple and beautifully executed blend of sweet violet flowers and fresh, airy green foliage. There are few things I enjoy more in a scent than a fresh, natural, leafy green accord.
Summary: When I first tried L'essence at the Munich airport, I was torn between Paris (big display) and the recently introduced L'essence. I had read the comparative reviews: L'essence was more masculine (good), less violet (good). And they're right: Paris on my skin was a blur of 'powder-violet'. But L'essence was fresh, woody, green. My choice was made, and I've never looked back. If you're into florals and feminine scents, this isn't for you.
Pros: Clean & Fresh, Draws Compliments, Great Smell, Great Value
