Reviews of Esencia Loewe

This was a good fragrance and I didn't necessarily mind blind-buying Esencia Pour Homme.It's obviously a green and brown fragrance but I'm going to make this claim.I think Aspen was inspired by this,It's the similar tone,and this preceded Aspen by 1 year.Though wer'e talking two completely different levels of craftsmanship...Aspen is a cheap and more basic version of this.

I get a green body of vetiver,bitter herbs,and a bit of pine.A very light touch of lemon oil and soap though not cutting and more of a mild tone.Minty and cool but through an herbal tweak and not a Cool Water synthetic blast...this minty touch is more natural.This green and minty side softens down as this gains some leather and a berry note.Hard to define the berry exactly other than lightly sweet and warm...gives a rustic appeal to the brown side of Esencia.Even though I like this I'd still call this a casual wear easily.Formal wear? it's possible but you've probably got something more stylish and clean toned to pull off a suit more effectively.

Just about a thumbs up.

I remember trying the original years ago when I used to go on holiday to Spain. It was a strong manly green fragrance in the same genre as the original Polo.

Received my sample and I must admit that it's not quite the same. It is similar but it's weaker and a bit watery.Still a good fragrance but not the great ones it used to be.

Thumbs up for Esencia by Loewe. A definite retro feel along the lines of the original Polo Green. I've worn Polo Green since 1983. The reformulation while enjoyable is not nearly as nice as the original was. Esencia brings elements that were in the original Polo Green to the forefront more than the Polo reformulation does. I don't have the expertise to say, but I'm feeling the oakmoss vibe of the old Polo more than I am the pine. But, the pine took time to materialize with Polo and was more in the middle notes. Escensia almost smells like it has some of the "fresh" notes that some of the fragrances that attempt to smell like rain, or clean skin use. I almost wonder if aldehydes have been used to highten the feel of freshness in this fragrance. It feels like it to me. Anyway...this is a nice one and I'm enjoying the nostalgia of it's vibe.

My first spray was overpowering of incense I thought maybe this is no good.
After a few more wearings I'm liking this one 2016 purchase.
Guess it's a green smell and enjoying the incense now.

Clean and green with a nice drydown, this one has that classic men's fragrance smell but without anything harsh or offensive. I prefer Polo Crest to this but if you're looking for a greener alternative, this should do the trick. Definitely preferred over the current reformulation of Polo Green.

I really want to carry out a longer review of this terrific scent, but that will mean buying a bottle. Until then, I can only back up what some of the previous reviewers have said: a high quality and superbly conceived green fragrance, that is smooth enough in the dry down to make the stronger components, used in many traditional powerhouses, seem tamed to just the right extent.

Late summer 2019: Having bought a bottle - still excellent, but falling short of greatness. The reason, really, is only the strength and projection. This could have been great if it had followed the aromatics-moss-leather progression with more potency. Unfortunately the notes tend to trip over each other and there isn't enough there in the latter stages to truly enjoy. But the path to greatness has been set out. I will easily use the 100ml and then consider a re-purchase. BTW - lovely green glass bottle and leather trim on the cap.
