EDIT: As a result of this thread, I am wearing ADG Essenza at work today. Wow. It is amazing. I always forget how good some frags are when I neglect them for a while. That, in and of itself, is a good reason to do a forced rotation.
I have about a dozen fragrances I have purchsed since getting back into this hobby prior to Christmas. FWIW, I have to say that Essenza ranks right up there. For me, better than:
1. Dior Fahrenheit
2. YSL Rive Gauche
3. Chanel Platinum Egoiste
4. L'Occitane Eau des Baux
5. Paco Rabanne 1 Million
I would put Essenza among the following favorites:
1. JPG Le Male
2. YSL La Nuit
3. Davidoff Cool Water
I have A*Men Pure Malt, Kouros and Yatagan on the way.
Yes -- I know -- all "over worn and overrated" scents according to many here. That's ok though -- it's me who is wearing them.
Essenza makes me feel good. It seems to instill confidence. I really like it and have to wear it more often. If you're anything like me, you will not regret this purchase. As a bonus, girls go nuts over this. At least the ones with whom I have come into contact.
