Peaches and Cream
I was trying to recall what the opening wafts of David Yurman EXOTIC ESSENCE were reminding me of, and then I realized: Dior ADDICT plus about a hundred other sandalwood-vanilla perfumes! This one is quite a bit less spicy and more fruity than most fragrances of this type, with a notable peach facet.

The musk seems to be contributing a creaminess to the drydown. There is a yellow quality to EXOTIC ESSENCE which reminds me of both Karl Lagerfield KAPSULE FLORIENTAL and Jil Sanders STYLE PASTELS SOFT YELLOW. Actually, the concept of the trio is the same for these three as well, as a matter of fact.

EXOTIC ESSENCE smells quite nice and does stand out from the crowd for its peach quality, although the sandalwood and vanilla seem dominant to my nose. I would definitely say that this perfume is more fruity than floral, but without being overly sweet. A gentle, creamy, peachy floriental.

EXOTIC essence? Nah, there are dozens of peachy fruitchoulis out there. Pleasant enough, but could not be less exotic, actually.+4
