Esencia is my favorite fragrance from Loewe, because it represents a true classic, born from the passion for quality of this Spanish fashion house that became famous for its leather goods. However, in spite of my preference, the only bottle of a Loewe perfume owned by me till present time was Solo Loewe.
Even tough that this is a fragrance that arrived on the market in 1988, I had the opportunity to sample Esencia 20 years later, in 2008. The fragrance belongs to the aromatic fougere family group and from the first spays on my wrist it managed to produce me an extremely pleasant sensation due to its green herbal facets.
Esencia is constructed according to the traditional methods that allowed the employment of numerous ingredients which conferred the aroma of this signature scent. The opening represents a blend of green notes with lemon, bergamot, galbanum, tarragon, green notes, lavender, juniper berries and Artemisia. The heart follows in a symphony of floral accords that stick to the olfactory memory. The mid development contains geranium, pine tree needles, Rose, Lily-of-the-Valley, Neroli, jasmine, basil, nutmeg and clary sage. After a couple of hours, the dry down reveals the unique character of the fragrance, encompassing notes of Tonka bean, leather, sandalwood, fir, amber, cedar, vetiver, Oakmoss, white musk and patchouli.
The bottle that encloses Esencia Loewe bursts with elegance and masculinity. The opaque green glass is topped with a golden stopper that has engraved the Loewe logo on top, while the packaging box preserves the same chromatic. Overall, Esencia Loewe is an exquisite fragrance for a man with character.
