    If possible, I'd get both (since I happen to like both), but I prefer Essenza.

    I'd throw my vote in as well....Bleu de Chanel actually is 5/5 scent wise for me, blew my mind. Incensy citrus is anything but generic. And on my skin, it's a rare fresh scent (the others being Aventus and Acqua di Gio Essenza though they last a few hours less) that pulls a solid lasting time (12 hours I think, I was shocked, shocked I tell you).

    Own Bleu... Own AdG... Will be getting AdG Essenza very very soon...

    So, love both - all depends on my mood. In very hot weather, I would lean toward Essenza. In the evenings or cooler summer days, I would go with Chanel Bleu.

    Both are A+ fragrances.

    I like Bleu, just like. And maybe I would rate Essenza higher if it had better longevity and projection and most importantly if it wasn't disgustingly overpriced.

    Owned both, kept Bleu. Essenza's longevity was bad

    Wow, AdG Essenza vs BdC. This one is very close for me. If vote next week I may flip flop

    Bleu de Chanel, but I get better longevity from Essenza and I like both. I like the top of Bleu de Chanel, but ADG Essenza smells really good in the dry down.

    Gio Essenza for me by a mile!!! I'm one that can't stand Chanel Bleu...

    Love Bleu. There's a lot I love about Essenza, but there's a bit of an off-accord for me; if not for that, I'd love it. Which reminds me, I need to go back and re-sniff it!

    Bleu

    I get a really weird sort of 'chips and vinegar' note off of AdG essenza on my skin in the dry down

    I'm giving ADG Essenza another wearing today, and I love it. This is one of my best all-day scents for smelling noticeably good with projection (a little) 12 hours later.
