Reviews of Acqua Essenziale

Generic, synthetic and screechy - this is precisely the type of 'mall scent' that one should avoid at all times. Acqua Essenziale recycles 'fresh masculine designer' olfactory clichés using what it seems like bottom shelf materials, and is absolutely inessential and inconsequential. I would not be surprised if this perfume was conceived of, blended and bottled in less than a week, just to fill shelf space.

In this style go for Nautica Voyage (for something fun), CK One (interesting androgyny) or Acqua di Gio (more sophisticated and seamless).

Initially, It was fresh and clean - like soap. So, it didn't suck, but smells like nice soap.

I do like it and found a deal where it wasn't too expensive so I bought a bottle. After wearing for a few days though I am sad to say that it does not have lasting power and quickly fades requiring frequent reapplication. I think when the bottle is done, I am also.

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.
