I haven't tried the complete lines -- definitely a couple dozen or so -- and my answer is no. English frags tend to be a lot more transparent and have less body than Esencia, which is fairly dense. I find Esencia more balanced and rich than those pale, wan English offerings. In fact, I don't own a single frag from those lines. Many are very heavy on the geranium as well, which I don't like to dominate a fragrance.
