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.

Night Out
This perfume is what I consider a more sophisticated perfume. It's not like the light fresh fragrances I wear daily. It is a fresh scent but it's a little heavier. I would wear this when I am going out, or for an occasion.

Pump
I love the smell but after three or four squirts the pump stopped working. I took it out of the case and tried to pump it some more and it was barely coming out. Then I laid it down on a table and noticed it was leaking. I put it back in the case but I didn’t get to use it all because it wouldn’t squirt after that. Was defective.

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.

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.
