Yes
Yein is often used as a cross between a word and a middle way between Yes and No. Either because both fit or because both don't fit. Personally, I mean: If the decision does not justify a clear 'yes', it must automatically be much closer to a 'no'. Even the word Yein alone consists of 1/4 Yes and 3/4 No.

The Essence is such a yes, because only the first quarter can convince me. Fresh fruit is the start, with a nice spice. Fruit with lavender and violet leaf really works very well here. This has something of a nosecatcher that can be carried away in the drugstore to a quick yes - just for the price called. The remaining three quarters will then no longer be worth mentioning. I would describe it linear and generic, almost deodorant. No. Even Fierce, on whom my heart is not really attached, has much more to offer. Or to stay in the drugstore segment: Clear Day by Aigner is similarly structured and much more balanced for my nose.

To put it another way: The Essence also doesn't really score in terms of shelf life. After 3-4 hours there is only a little bit of the aforementioned deodorant left. I find the bottle very attractive and also very practical and handy. The sprayer, on the other hand, clearly reflects the low price.

All in all, this is not a convincing overall package for me. Maybe not quite the no, but certainly not a clear yes. Yep.

Delicious, inexpensive, unprovocative
A great fragrance if you don't want to use your expensive niche fragrances.

Go swimming with friends and barbecue afterwards? No problem. No problem. The fragrance is simple enough not to fight with residual chlorine and cheap enough to freshen it up again.

It's so burning hot that you don't want to use anything because it could just take your breath away? Also no problem with such a light fragrance.

Not breathtaking, but still delicious and always good. Smells something like a Fierce, just a little deeper and "saltier"

I'm gonna miss you
I love this perfume. Since it is so cheap, it is simply my all-round carefree EdT, which you could always hang up quickly if you left the house for a few more hours and certainly did nothing wrong. I'd say 5 hours' shelf life.

With this fragrance I have so far been showered with compliments from the ladies of creation, who just seem to love it. It's very similar to Fierce, that's true, but Fierce seems more like an ice ray to me, while Essence is much fuller to me.

Unfortunately, I recently heard that it is probably no longer produced, so I have now stocked up again with a few bottles. And that also caused me to leave a short farewell here. For me as a student who likes fragrances, it was always a cheap way to smell good. Too bad you're going to Essence. :(

I would classify this fragrance as a great aftershave. It's a nice fragrance to splash on in the office. Ok to try but not a repeat buy.+1
