On my daughter’s birthday, my husband also presented me with a few gifts; he’s sweet and thoughtful like that. Two of the gifts he purchased were fragrances – Flora by Gucci and the David Yurman Essence Collection.
The David Yurman Essence Collection is a trio of fragrances that are perfect for spring: Exotic Essence, Delicate Essence and Fresh Essence. The David Yurman Essence Collection is a wonderful addition to my fragrance collection due to its versatility; you can choose to wear one fragrance or mix and match, and layer fragrances to create your signature scent for day or evening. Although I love all three scents in this collection, two of them are my favorite – Exotic and Fresh Essence both exhibit qualities I love in my fragrances. Both of them have a hint of masculinity, and do well in portraying a strong, sensual, sophisticated woman.
Exotic Essence (Citrine)
This slightly masculine scent is one of my favorites from the David Yurman Essence Collection. This is a great scent for the evening due to notes of sparkling mandarin, casablanca lily, rose petals and exotic woods. The woodsy notes combines with the lily and rose petals make it, in my opinion, the most sensual fragrance in the collection, thus making it the perfect scent for a date night, but that doesn’t mean I don’t wear it during the day because I definitely do.
Delicate Essence (Pink Tourmaline)
This fragrance has notes of pink pepper, lotus blossom and sparkling orange. The pink pepper doesn’t dominate in this fragrance; however, I get more of the lotus blossom and sparkling orange. To me, Delicate Essence is a light and flirty making it the perfect scent for a day at the office.
Fresh Essence (Vivid Peridot)
I get the most wear out of Fresh Essence. Not only is the color of this fragrance Peridot, which is my birthstone, as well as one of David Yurman’s favorite gemstones. This is a very clean and fresh scent. It’s light and slighlty floral. It features notes of sparkling apple, cassis, juicy red fruits and fresh greens. I like it combined with Exotic Essence.
More reasons to love the David Yurman Essence Collection
What I love about each of the fragrances featured in this collection is the staying power of each of them; they last a long time! From the time I spray it on in the morning until I reach home or even after, the scent is still there. Due to the longevity of the fragrances, all three bottles, depending on the ones you use the most should last you for some time.
The simplicity of the bottles, the jewel tones of each of the fragrances in this set, along with the scents have made the David Yurman Essence Collection a staple in my spring fragrance arsenal. Unfortunately, the collection was released in 2011, so it may prove to be hard to find. And since I received it as a gift, I am not sure of the price.
