    If it's the Ferragamo that you are talking about, I tried it briefly but didn't care for it. To me, it was weak and smelled medicinal. Hopefully you will like it when you buy it.

    You need to try it and judge for yourself.

    I have left Basenotes due to excessive childish behavior by community members.

    ^^ Pretty much agree with MegaMav's review. I thought it had a nice opening, but then....blah.

    I haven't worn this one yet, but it's funny you brought it up since I was thinking about starting a thread about it.

    It's at Nordstrom if you're in the U.S. and want to give it a sniff. I sprayed cards with Acqua Essenziale and Acqua Essenziale Blue before heading out to meet a friend... but like a dope, I eventually forgot which card was which scent. I thought one was nice, but I really enjoyed the other as did my friend... but when she asked what it was, I realized I may have mixed up the cards, so I didn't know. I keep meaning to go back to Nordstrom to try them again. It might be Blu that we both preferred? Maybe? I'm pretty sure the one we preferred lasted for ages on that card. She said she found it in her car the next day and it still smelled strong.

    Own it. Like it as a light aquatic summer fragrance. Longevity could be better but for the price a good frag. IMHO

    Man, I hate when that happens. I try to remember which one I placed in each pocket but I forget almost every time! It gets tricky when you have five strips stashed away in different pockets. I would feel like a dork if I went in to a store with a pen and plastic baggies though.

    I love it. It's a great choice for the summer.

    I think people tend to write it off as a generic aquatic because of the name, the brand, and....well that happens a lot with aquatics. And I admit there's something familiar about it. However...

    It smells great! And it's put together really well. Acqua Wssenziale smells very much like Bleu de Chanel, except in place of Bleu's heavier elements (the incense and certain woody facets), it's made lighter through some aquatic notes and cool aromatics like mint and sage.

    There's also a harsh synthetic scratchy note that I get in the opening of Bleu that I don't get with Essenziale. Essenziale feels better suited for the summer to me, as it's lighter, and produces this really nice sillage that's watery, a little sweet in the aromatic sense, and just the right density.

    Bottom line, if you're a fan of aquatics I think you'll love this. If you tend to dislike aquatics anyway, then this probably isn't for you. It's become a summer staple for me, easy to wear and in tune with the season.
