The only inappropriate and absolutely inaccurate name here is.
So far my remaining knowledge from the advanced French course reaches then nevertheless still. Water essence?!
Who on earth thought up that name? The name has just as much to do with the fragrance as Serge Lutens with Ed Hardy.

Well, thank God, that's the only drawback. I can live with that.
How does it smell now this smell, which presents itself in a shining amber-colored bottle?
Quite simple: Radiantly beautiful, flowery, delicate and extraordinary, oh simply heavenly!
Maya the Bee would be delighted. Honey in abundance. I don't know exactly where this honey dominance comes from. Maybe it's the jasmine.

The fruits can only be sniffed very easily, but what really makes a long noise are the base notes.
The fragrance has on my skin a fantastic durability with a very pleasant Sillage.
The vanilla, wood and amber notes capture the honey note perfectly and ensure that the fragrance remains effective for a few hours after spraying. It becomes even softer and more cuddly. On my scarf and my hair, for example, he holds a felt eternity.

It's 2 degrees in bright sunshine today. And this morning I wrapped myself in a cuddly office sweater and went straight for Essence d'Eau. I was after something unusual and this little water makes me also still really good mood.

Dear boss, unfortunately I cannot work today because I have to sniff my wrists all the time and give in to my daydreams.

I'm really sorry!

I'll be off.

"Summ summ", made the honeybee!

Hello Boys
A beautiful, creamy , golden floral, that reminds me of Poeme by Lancome. Very feminine and lasts on the skin all day. The bottle is a tad weird though! Not sure what they were thinking there, as this is a very ladylike fragrance!

Creamy white floral in a phallic bottle
Essence d'eau is one of those little known beauties with a price tag that defies its quality. Signature scent worthy for the right wearer, Essence is an alternative to the overdone & highly recognizable celeb sugars du jour.

Essence d'eau is a modern, warm, & creamy oriental, with an emphasis on floral, especially on the top. The orange blossom & jasmine open for me straight away - I don't catch fruit. The drydown is gorgeous, sweet & very sensual. Essence is very strong & somewhat heavy early on, but not very long lasting, imo. For me personally, Essence is a bit heavy on the jasmine (my skin amplifies jasmine) & bit tilted toward the feminine factor. It's SO not my thing, but it is SO beautiful and I DO appreciate it. It's perfect for date nights, which is why I have a bottle.

The bottle is a phallic, down to the plastic top. (Seriously, you've gotta see the top, looking down upon it. It's also phallic.) In addition, my bottle leaks a little, which ironically seems appropriate. The box - really lovely, covered in fabric (?) & simply beautiful. Overall, the quality of the product & package defies its price .

But the name? Essence of water? Water reduced to its essential character? It's far too sensual & sexy to be water. Both the juice and the falcon defy its name. This is a beautiful, sensual sweet fragrance that's only missing one thing ... a battery.
