Acqua Essenziale fragrance notes

Reviews of Acqua Essenziale

More fresh and less rich than Bleu de Chanel. Another one to skip and save your money for Bleu de Chanel EDP.

Whatever you decide to do, don't buy this at a department store for $80! I've seen it for under $20.

Lots of alcohol and synthetic at the beginning, then fades away quickly into a Nautica Voyage drydown, but weaker. I don't feel like this resembles Bleu de Chanel at all except that they are both "blue" and fresh.

Update: Just tried this one again and I do get the Bleu de Chanel comparison now. Not as good as BdC but but still decent enough to be above average.

Nothing to like about this except the price. It is a smell that exists, that is all.

Acqua Essenziale is, as others have noted, a typical acquatic. The opening notes are lemon and basil and smell virtually indistinguishable from Ermenegildo Zegna's Acqua d'Estate Essenza 2007 version, with perhaps a bit more lavendar.

The heart of the fragrance is basically lavendar and acquatic notes and it just slowly disappears from here. Sillage and longevity are what you would expect.

I do agree with those who have said this is a bit of white noise, but it's still nice nonetheless. I wouldn't purchase this myself, but it's a nice acquatic if that's something you'd like to have.

Boring aquatic

I used a sample today.
As i love Alberts work in CK one, Acqua di Gio and his outstanding Lanvin Homme i find his later fragrances pretty generic and dull for example this one.
Its fresh,minty,aquatic and sunny, its OK but thats it. It is OK... I dont love OK fragrances they dont give me that motivation to buy it.
The Lavender is pretty tucked away as im not smelling it (blendup with mint)

Pretty safe buy for a present and longer lasting then other aquatic

Pros: Safe
Cons: Generic, boring"

Don't bother

The fresh, aquatic part is nice enough, but it is drowned (no pun intended) out by a wave (no pun intended) of macho, cloying, cologne-y blandness. Acqua Essenziale is being massively marketed at the moment. Hope it doesn't become massively popular, I'd prefer not being surrounded by stuff like this.
