Another "cheap" copy of Aventus.
From what appears on the fragrance sheet or the Loewe website, to what it smells like in reality, there is an abyss. No lavender, no moss, no sandalwood, or vetiver. Perhaps there is something of the latter two over there at the bottom, putting a dash of ingenuity .. Yes, it may have a dash of incense, also on this base, but very diluted and insignificant.

We are facing another "gross" clone of "Aventus", of which both proliferate today. It opens with the typical explosion of synthetic Bergamot, nuanced to subtract some acidity with some strange ambroxan-like molecule and some wood / vetiver in the background, as a base.

Compared to the "current Aventus", well, but it totally lacks the nuances of rose, green apple or vanilla that could be found in jars of years ago.

I see it far below, both in quality and in distinction, or creativity, of releases such as "Loewe 7" or its "Anonymous" flanker. With much less elaboration and nuances than these, apart from that we are talking about a copy of other perfumes that have been in the market for some time.

As for the performance, here I think it is going well. It is powerful, especially at the start. Gaudy. I think that much more than the "Aventus" itself and even the unbearable (for my taste) "Club de Nuit Intense", which is the one that has reminded me the most, for that squeaky look. In the cardboard, although it has lost strength, I still smell it 24 hours later.

With no intention of offending, this type of perfume reminds me a little of the typical "redneck" with money (or that it pretends to appear), which seeks to attract attention and be recognized by everyone and arrives with its car full of spoilers tacky, making a ridiculous noise with the engine, while destroying the gearshift absurdly, with the purpose of attracting more attention. Obviously, I do not say that everyone who dazzles this perfume has to be like that, much less. It is a mere personal association.

The more than € 100 that they ask for the 100ml bottle, they have simply stunned me ...

Beautiful and fleeting
When something new appears, people always like to orient themselves to something they know. In the case of 'Esencia EdP' it's 'Aventus' again.

I'll break away and see only 'Esencia EdP'.

This fragrance has little in common with the 'Esencia EdT'.

The fragrance starts very peppery and spicy. Lavender softens these notes from the beginning without drifting in the direction of the Barber shop.

The incipient wood and spice nuances make this fragrance a 'round' experience.

It looks very fresh.

The cedar is not perceptible to me in the first phase. It only becomes noticeable very late and, with further woody and earthy notes, ensures that the fragrance does not take off.

At the end of the development process is a fresh fragrance, with beautifully balanced green, woody and spicy fragrances.

D-note: Good

The scent is perceptible, but does not intrude.

Unfortunately, the scent is not very durable. I expected more from the addition "eau de parfum".

This will definitely give a noticeable deduction in the H-note.

The bottle, as always in this Loewe segment, is simply high-quality. Made for the hand.

A first-class fragrance, presented in an appropriate container, where the shelf life draws the overall picture, especially at a decent price, to the south (below).

Boah is the clean one
Meanwhile everybody knows which scent this is based on and I really don't want to roll it up again. When I applied Esencia for the first time I wasn't very surprised, the top note has its own touch, but the drydown is already very similar; However, I feel the scent of Esencia as very clean, much less corners and edges than the model, instead always the "clear" scent DNA, this is probably the only difference, clearly Esencia still has some green notes, but they don't pull the rudder.

Personally I like that very much, but it certainly gives people who perceive it as annoying.
Personally, I said goodbye to my A. after the purchase.

Aventus - or the same in green?
Thanks again to the great organized sharing of Shuqush!
Without you, I wouldn't have gotten this wonderful scent.

To the fragrance view:
Aventus, but in greener, some tea, basil and a drop of vetiver in the base!
A drop of original Vetiver, the teen note of Silver Mountain Water and a hint of basil as you know it from the D&G light Blue internes (at least that's how I perceive it).
I like this mixture very much!
Absolute insider tip for fresh fruity Aventus lovers who have always wished their favourite a bit greener.

I would even say this is the first fragrance that really gets so incredibly close without looking like a cheap copy and still has a certain independence.
Durability and Sillage a solid 8! PL incredibly good.
If you like Aventus you should definitely test this one before you waste your time with Explorer comparisons.

Esencia 2.0
Yes, it was the bottle that somehow drew my attention. To Selfridge's new Esencia. I wore the "old" Esencia EdT quite often in my first summer at Parfumo. Then somehow too rare. So the fragrance first got into the past and then out of my collection. Green he was. A little edgy. Own and therefore very good.

The Eau de Parfum has, in short, only remotely something in common with the green EdT. It enters directly into a very vivid lavender note and creates with some vetitver green (and its minimal bitterness) a signature directly. In fact it has a more serious touch than e.g. Floris' 1976, which also uses this combination as a basis for citrus and wood.

Nevertheless, the Esencia EdP remains fresh and yet somewhat muted. Adult. The combination of just a few fragrance components is simply wonderful for this fragrance. He doesn't play great through pyramid (which he doesn't have) or pushes ISO E Super or Ambroxan out of the base for sheer helplessness (and deliberate mass suitability).

No, it is a clear statement of how fragrances are developed today. Esencia Eau de Parfum is clearly the even evening version of the classic. Which is quieter. Collected. And yet very powerful. The top note (as is so often the case when increasing the concentration of perfume oil) almost completely fades out and enters directly into the fragrance theme.

The sandalwood "ignites" quite late and basically provides a soft drydown when vetiver and lavender slowly dim over the hours. The combination with the mossy, woody-earthy components ultimately makes him a whole gentleman. With matching silage and shelf life of around 7-8 hours.

This fragrance - thanks to its blend and concentration - is unfortunately not often to be found under the nose. He should definitely be in the standard repertoire of Loewe or at least of Selfridges, if it has to be an Exclusive
