    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.

    Really close (expecially at the beginning) to the classic and decently appointed Lanvin Pour Homme (citrusy, metallic, slightly ozonic, woody, orangy, minty and vaguely dusty) and yes, to the better blended, more natural and bracing Bleu Chanel. This modern ozonic/fougere is anyway more orientated towards a synthetic musky/marine nature and lacks the distinctive violet leaves presence (in here replaced by a sharp lavender/geranium) we notice in the Lanvin one. The combination of musk, grapefruit, citrus and chemical ozonic ingredients produces a really common and uninspired vibe. Really really boring and useless.

    WOW! Citrus, Geranium, and original... NOT.
    It is a generic inoffensive aquatic/citrus fragrance that blends in with the millions of others. Kind of like Versace Pour Homme, or any number of others.

    Very nice. Did a skin test in Macy's and was pleasantly surprised. Haven't bought it yet but plan on it. Definitely not offensive in the least. Longevity was just ok, about 4 hours, sillage was great on me for the first few hours. I get more of the mandarin off the top and the patchouli is very light and doesn't over power the vetiver at all on drydown. I liked it.
