Reviews of Yohji Essential

Yohji Essential begins with a verdant burst of faintly sweet, but tart yellow flowers. Its rose facets are supportive, rather than defining. One could certainly characterize the overall entry as harsh or brash — it is fairly ammoniac/uric, and definitely animalic in that sense.

Thirty minutes in, Essential becomes less brash, or perhaps the wearer just becomes less aware of the volume. I wouldn't characterize this as overly complex, I sense some light herbal elements, and agree with the previous reviewer's assertion of a cumin edge. There is a fruited, malic quality underfoot as well.

It's nice, but this beast is not for my skin.

(Vintage bottle from launch release.)

Whoo boy! A powerhouse rosy chypre over musk with that hint of skank that speaks of cumin. As a lover of "big" fumes I really enjoy this but it's not especially memorable - nor for the faint of heart. Pretty good sillage but not much staying power.
