Summary: Essence, like other fragrances for women by Narciso Rodriguez, is a fragrance centered on musk with tasteful floral accents; however, if you are in love with Narciso Rodriguez for Her and enjoy the come hither, animalic musk, then Essence could be a shock or a disappointment. The musk in Essence is the laundry detergent kind, accented with rose and a light dusting of aldehydes.
Summary: This is my HG perfume! I'm really picky and not a scent person. I don't like strong florals or woody things or super musky musks. I used to have a few benign men's colognes I wore until my bff told me I definitely couldn't do it and that I smelled like a man. Anyway, this is the first perfume I've found that I can tolerate as an everyday "me" scent without feeling like a weird bouquet of hussy. I wish I knew more about perfume notes so I could describe this better.
Summary: This to me is very similar to Chloe Love. Great, fresh smell and definitely lost lasting. However, it is VERY close to the skin. It would have become one of my favourite summer perfumes if only it was a bit stronger...quite a bit stronger. Nevertheless, very pleasant.
