Loewe Escencia is a crisp, dry chypre that lives in the same neighborhood as Polo green, Polo Crest and similar scents. Escencia opens with a bracing lavender, citrus and artemisia accord that is one of my favorite chypre openings, though nowhere near Chanel pour Monsieur which is the finest on the planet. Escencia is a very attractive scent for those who enjoy Polo green and similar fragrances. The pine note in Esencia is just right. No pine cleaning products here. The mossy, leather dry down lasts for hours. The potency of Escencia mellows over time, like a forest tucking in for the evening. Esencia inhabits my kind of neighborhood: chypre, green, pine...maybe a Prius or two humming by.
