Fierce Fragrance: The Essence Collection by David Yurman

David Yurman Essence Collection

If you remember awhile back I got the opportunity to review this beauty powder from David Yurman and I was a bit impressed, especially to see a jeweler stepping into the beauty realm.  If you’re not familiar with Yurman, he is the mastermind behind the iconic cable bracelet.  He made his mark in the jewelry world and he seems to be a contender on the beauty side of things. 

For this review, I got to test out the Essence Collection, a trio of fragrances that launched just in time for spring.  You can either wear these scents alone, or do a cool mix and match to create your own signature scent.  So, here’s the breakdown of each one.

Delicate Essence

This fragrance has notes of pink pepper, lotus blossom and sparkling orange.  I wore this scent the most out of three, because it was perfect to wear to work.  I could smell the sparkling orange, which gives this one this special little twang to it that I liked without being overpowering.

Fresh Essence

This one definitely lives up to its name, with notes of sparkling apple, cassis, juicy red fruits and fresh greens. The scent is very clean, almost too clean for me.  When I put a perfume on, I like to smell it on me a little bit more than I would using a lotion or body wash even.  If the scent was a little stronger, I may have used it more.

Exotic Essence 

This was my special occasion one, with notes of sparkling mandarin, casablanca lily, rose petals and exotic woods. It was the most sensual smelling one out of the three, the notes of exotics woods making it perfect for a night out with a special someone.  This one to me was more sexy than exotic.

All in all, I enjoyed this collection!  The staying power of each perfume was great, only needing to spray once in each of the traditional perfume places (sides of the neck and back of the wrists).  Looking back I wish I would’ve done my own mix and match with the three, but I still have some left over to do that!

This collection is available at Bloomingdales, David Yurman boutiques, and
