AdG Essenza is it you?
Expected nothing and got it all. From the notes alone you would expect a very green and herbaceous scent, however the first sniff revealed a gorgeous 90s aquatic alla Acqua di Gio. Watery and sweet freshness accompanied by slight green pine nuances. The color of the bottle describes it quite well. It would fit perfectly in the AdG lineup as a release in the late 90s. There are not citrus fruits listed but there is definetly a fresh citrus splash in the opening - quite fizzy. Its not that synthetic, the performance is ok and all that for 14 bucks. Try it and write me a comment, I am interested what you guys are thinking!

I am thirsty!
Posca! No, we're not talking about the character of the same name from Puccini's opera "Tosca", but Posca: this is what the Romans used to call a drink made from tipped wine or vinegar and water. They used it to disinfect the often not so clean water that was often available to them. They often spiced it up with honey and spices. You can definitely smell the tarragon from the fragrance pyramid and possibly also some dill in Oxygène Homme. The Romans will have used the two spices for their Posca but probably for reasons of taste rather not.

The ancient Romans stretched their water for disinfection so vinegar. The idea to sell that as a fragrance, they had not - unlike Lanvin, which dye the blue and market as "Oxygène Homme". Besides that, you can still smell some aquatic notes and the non-stated ambroxan. Cool Water meets Hengstenberg quasi.

I do not have to say more about the fragrance. I'm glad that I could trade it this week and wish the subsequent owner more fun with it than I had him!

This would be now but no review of me if I would not still drop a few loosely fitting historical facts; almost in time for the just past Easter: Who was raised Christian, probably still remembers the story of when Jesus on the cross of a Roman soldier (he is called Stephaton) was handed a sponge soaked with vinegar. At least three of the four evangelists report this; how John came up with a sprig of hyssop instead of the sponge remains to be seen. What sounds like a cruelty - I think on the cross you have enough problems, you don't need vinegar on your face - was probably an act of mercy: Jesus' penultimate words are said to have been - according to John again - "I thirst!" So the soldier rather handed him some Posca from his canteen, the vinegar being a mistranslation.

Or was it a fragrance strip with Oxygène Homme after all?

How can something so blue, so green smell?
Sometimes you have certain ideas before you buy a fragrance.

Either you go to the relevant fragrance shops and test extensively, or you are courageous/stupid and invest "blindly" in a more or less clear pyramid of fragrances including the appearance of the flacon.

Of course, the odd blind purchase has gone down the drain; in my case, the exuberant adulation of Montblanc's "Individuel" was my downfall. Yes, I know, many people love it, but unfortunately I do not. But that's not the point either
The bottle of Oxygen is truly no beauty, the spray head is also no stroke of genius.
But let's leave that aside, this creation by old master Alberto Morillas is a real hidden gem. Well, I'm generally very fond of Morillas scents. But not out of blind trust in his name, but because his perfumes really do something
With this creation for "Lanvin" he has put a wrong track, he comes along blue like the Mediterranean Sea.
There's nothing blue about that perfume. With much benevolence when applied directly. Here one is welcomed in a nice and airy way. Rather cloudy than watery.

What then follows is a labeling fraud of the finest kind. Young boy is Oxygen green.
So green that you think you are walking through a rainy fir forest.
A certain earthiness (fresh moist soil) underlined the impression.
The fir resin is ubiquitous.

The Drydown is a blast and doesn't let up at all.
Durability and Sillage are above average on my skin.

Don't get me wrong, this fragrance is fresh in every moment of its existence, just don't keep it blue fresh. Probably you can only understand this, if you put it on by yourself.

I like to try my hand at "lost perfumes" and in this case I do not regret for a second having blindly invested my money.

I can say with a clear conscience that Oxygen makes a damn good and fresh impression even with today's monster heat (31.07.2020) of 36°.
Always aquatic I didn't want more, I needed a real fresh alternative and now I have found it.

Green, aquatic, and resinous with the sourness of the artemisia mixed with refreshing fir and evergreen cypress. The oxygen that gives life

Scent is nice, but it's gone before you can breathe oxygen...
If you like 90's aquatic frags, give it a sniff.

Slightly deceptive aqua coloured liquid, it has some sky blue aura but it's really a light green scent, a fresh breeze of fir trees & herbs.

Light, airy, fresh and inoffensive. Nothing spectacular but pleasant nonetheless.
