I have to say Essence is a very distinct scent. My friend wore it and every time I wear I smell it, it reminds me of him which is a little weird. I first smelled this scent when that friend left a can of it at my house. I used the rest of the can for a week or so and ejoyed the scent. Its a great fuse between a light and heavy smell. I usually spray a lot of body spray on my clothing before I leave anywhere, and because of that people always say I smell good. I have always been a fan of Axe products and this one keeps me thinking that way. Although Essence is not my favorite Axe scent it sure is up there. I go through this can so fast though, I wish they would sell them in a bigger can. The twist down top is a really cool feature to the can of the product. I could compare this product to Old Spice's "Champion" or "Swagger". I could wear this scent for a long while and not get bored of it. I don't really have much else to say about this product besides go to the store and smell it yourself and see what I am talking about. Axe Essence is overall a great product.
