Masculine Freshness.
I like it, the mint is noticeable and it is cool as ice, that with musk is incredibly sexy to me, I associate mint and musk to be so attractive in men. The top notes blend together, juicy citrus that is not offending, icy mint, and herbal lavender make a trio of freshness that is strong and uplifting, while the sexy musk and woods draw a good support, I like it very much and yes I can feel it to be similar to Drakkar, because of the musk, lavender notes, mint is replaced the fresh pine notes. I feel it be very fresh, sexy and masculine, the type of scent you want your boyfriend, lover to have while he holds you in his arms. He is musky but also minty fresh, very nice. I feel it falls into the same minty/masculine family of scents as Cool Water, Swiss Army, Pasha by Cartier, Roadster, Burberry Men, a fresh composition in the same lines, if you like those, this is one sure to collect and not miss out on. I just find mint in men to be extremely sexy.

Fresh breath for the skin
The decision has been made: This fragrance will complete my collection of fresh fragrances for now, now that the cold season is just around the corner and I truly have enough choice among the freshmakers. But why in all my tests lately Drakkar Essence of all people? On the one hand, because this fragrance is strong and that in the literal sense. There are probably only a few newborns with such a pronounced presence and aura.

That the menthol contained in the mint is the decisive essence here, nobody will be able to deny. One could call the EDT well and gladly the "Wrigley's Airwaves" among the fragrances, which is meant by no means derogatory. Because with all the minciness, the comparison with pinimenthol or the like never comes to mind. It is too well intercepted or enriched by woody notes as well as musk and grapefruit.

This results in an overall very strong freshness that is neither particularly green nor extremely aquatic and only slightly citric. And that's the second reason why I think Drakkar Essence rounds off my fresh assortment perfectly. - (By the way, I don't know what my "previous speaker" said sniffed out here, because the scent contains neither cyclamen nor mandarin nor rosemary ... no offense!)

Conclusion: Drakkar Essence is an obviously underestimated fresh fragrance for a reasonable price. If you like mint, you're guaranteed to get your taste in here. Durability and Sillage are strongly above average for a representative of this kind. Who would like to use the leidige shower gel analogy in the smell basis however absolutely, may become also with Essence like with hundreds of other fresh EDTs find. There's nothing you can do about that.
