    Been trackin my wears w/SotD feature since 12/14/10; Loewe pH comes in 13th with 46 wears. Fits my scentsabilities like a glove.

    Thought highly enough of Esencia and Agua de Loewe and owned bottles for a bit, but they eventually left the herd.

    Esencia Loewe - but look for bottles with oakmoss and treemoss listed in the ingredients. These were in there until roughly 2011. Not hard to find and not very expensive. I've got a 150ml bottle from around 2010 that I found on eBay for $60. If you buy a current bottle you'll be disappointed. Not the same fragrance.

    Loewe 7 Anonimo - probably my favorite incense fragrance at the moment. The regular Loewe 7 and Loewe 7 Natural are also good.

    Esencia Loewe, without a doubt.

    Personally not a fan of the ones I've thus far tried.

    I've got several bottles of Esencia EdP (not the EdT).

    Many guys say it smells like Aventus and I see where they are coming from.
    It goes in the Aventus direction, but is more citrussy and more green.
    Very nice lime notes on top and a fresh lavender/vetiver combination in the heart.

    And it's only 69% alcohol, the rest is the juice. Very high quality scent, nice packaging and great performance - though some will get olfactory fatique very soon.

    Unfortunately I have to agree with this. Tried them all in Barcelona and wasn’t wowed by any of them.

    Esencia and pH are really the only 2 I've liked from this house. I've been wanting to try the 7 line as it looks interesting though. I have tried a couple from the Solo line, including the original, which I found very boring.. you can just get David Beckham Homme for a fraction the price of Solo. Both sway in the direction of TdH edt.

    Esencia will probably get the most recommends as it is a classic. It's similar to Polo classic, so if you're not into old school, powerhouse smelling, very green and earthy, slightly dirty style frags, you won't like this. Thought even as I was newer to exploring the world of frags, when I hated stuff like Polo, Azzaro pH and other old school chypre's and fougere's, i always loved esencia from the start. it has a universal appeal, despite being an old school powerhouse type of smell. It will never be Cosmair Polo, but it sure as hell kicks the ass of current Polo.
