Description
Fresh Essence starts with a delightful combination of apple and cassis blended with red fruit and green notes for a wry, fairy tale opening. Dewy, dappled water lilies, roses, and peonies bathe the top note fruit in cold spring water and a splash of delicate florals, brushed with cedar and cashmere.

Too strong
Even though the bottle came in practically empty from either leaking or evaporated during transit, from what I could smell it was a strong scent a little less floral and more musky.

Exotic
I happen to love all David Yurman scents on scent bird. They are exotic, so different from any other scents. They are heavy but not in a bad way. Every time I wear a David Yurman scent - I receive so many questions on what am I wearing. It will be a perfect scent for spring.

More Sweet Than Fresh
Fresh scents can either be super mature or just enough. Candy undertone scents can come off cheap and old school Bath & Body Works Sweet Pea or any of those godawful vanilla perfumes that came in kits from Walmart (they were the worst Christmas gifts). This fragrance is the perfect balance of a mature fresh and a flirty candy fragrance. It's perfect for the office and then leaving for happy hour.

I bought this because of the reviews. It’s more of that manly Elizabeth Taylor perfume my grandma wore when I was young. Not something I enjoy but everyone is different

I like this one
It's not a bad scent... very subtle. It changed scent on my skin a bit and I'm not as thrilled with it that way as I am out of the bottle. It's very fresh. I wish it had some more citrus to it. It reminds me just a bit of cut grass or something woodsy.

Perfect Mix of Clean and Sweet
I am not so much a fan of sweet scents, but this one hits the nail on the head. It is a perfect mix of sweet and clean, and they perfectly balance one another. This would be perfect for Spring, Summer, and early Autumn.

Not a fresh and fruity scent like I expected
This has such strong floral notes that it should not be listed as clean, fruity, or flirty. It is more of a scent for someone looking for a deep floral old fashioned scent. I am not impressed at all since I love fruity clean fragrances. If your style is more DKNY Be Delicious or Versace Bright Crystal stay far away from this one.

Old Lady
The notes seemed exciting and it’s called “fresh essence” so why did it smell like old lady? There is absolutely nothing fresh about this and it’s not even a good old lady perfume (Narciso although old lady can be appreciated! Or Chanel No 5, you get the gist). It smells like everything else out there but definitely for an older crowd.

Absolutely love this perfume. It lasts quite well for me and is not too overwhelming. It is exactly as the name implies: extremely fresh smelling, although I could see why some people would say it is a "mature" scent, mostly due to the intense floral notes. Perfect spring scent. I only wish I had gotten it sooner!

It's springtime in Texas and it is getting really warm and humid that's why this is such a great fragrance for this time of year. It's light without the overpowering flower notes and sexy, sophisticated too. I wear it to work and no one can smell me be before I even enter the room or to dinner and the fragrance doesnt hog the attention from the great smell of the food. This fragrance is great! Actually David Yurman has done well with his line. They're all classic, classy, feminine and to the point. Lovely, just lovely!

This is medium in strength. A toilette, so it doesn't last long. Maybe 2 hours before a refresher. If you like it, purchase a perfume/parfume for a longer lasting scent. Tones or fruit and light musk blended very well. I give my stamp of approval and will add to my collection.
