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.

3.8 out of 5
Love this one. It’s got a fresh kind of sweetness to it that is not too sweet or overbearing
Very fresh, very pretty.
A big nope for me
A big nope for me. This is supposed to have notes of crisp apple. My scent profile is fruity, citrus, and fresh. This just smelled like flowers and bath soap. Which I hate flowery smelling perfume. 🤢
Very nice. Light and fresh
The scent wasn't for me.
Win for her
I personally did not care for this scent so I gave it to my friends and she loved it. Win for her...
18 to 24
I liked how it was fruity and also floral, strong but not overbearing
Havent had it yet
But..... just by the description it sounds like heaven. Look forward to trying to.
Well-named: this was perfect on humid summer days and at the gym. Light, refreshing hints of apple-floral kept pleasantly wafting around me. Did not sour or get stale even with sweat. Will be purchasing more.
Not a scent for me.
55 to 64
The name says it all
This is a light and fresh fragrance. Didn't stay long on my skin, but it is great for work and summer.
45 to 54
I didn't care for it
25 to 34
Not a fan more masculine and fake smelling
It was strong of fake smells and seemed more masculine then anything.
Light floral and clean. Strong rose presence but light and flirty not heavy.
35 to 44
I didn't dislike this perfume, but it was nothing special and the staying power was none.
25 to 34
Light and fresh
This was a lovely light and fresh scent that isn’t perfect for summer! Very happy with it so far!
25 to 34
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.
45 to 54
Did not like... :-(
Was not a fan, it had to much of a flower smell than I like.
Lovely and fresh!
Lovely fairly light scent. Has floral notes without being overly flowery. Just smells really fresh and clean.
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.
Not my cup of tea
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
Not my fav
The scent was a bit too floral for me. And I felt like it was extremely strong
Clean & fresh
An everyday fragrance
I like this fragrance. It's fresh, clean, and the fragrance lingers on your skin for hours.
It’s not my type
I like fruity smelling prefume
Sweet and fresh
I love this scent! Only drawback is it doesnt last.
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.
A little overwhelming
I smell like my grandmother. It doesn’t smell bad. I think the musk is a little much for me.
Not my type
Not somthing i chose, way to off my smrll profile.
Fresh and Clean
I got a lot of compliments about how fresh and clean this perfume is. Very light but super refreshing throughout the day. Not too overpowering and not too feminine or masculine.
Love this fragrance!!!! Perfect for summer!
Clean and Sophisticated
This smells great!!! Clean yet Sophisticated.. The perfect Summer Date night Scent! Not Over Powering and has really great stay power.
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.
Loved it !
Perfect light and fresh scent
Very natural scent, not overpowering. Perfect for warmer weather.
Love this fragrance. Great for summer.
I like fresh smells & my go to perfume is versace bright pink, but this... This perfume is now my favorite!! Its not to strong, its fresh and im getting a large bottle. Smells so good!!
I love how this scent lasts all day! Its a bit strong at first but once that initial boost goes away its a fun scent.
Reminds me of White Diamonds (yes, the Liz Taylor one). A little bit overpowering and 'old lady'. Not a fan.
Pleasant, but no staying power
Sweet, soft scent. Very pleasant, but didn’t last 1/2 the day.
Very fresh sexy scent, one of my favorites
First impression is the lasting impression I've always been told and this one definitely had me at hello. Long lasting, sweet smelling, just like I like my scents. This is a big bottle worthy.
I like this perfume. Ive been disappointed with the past few months, but this brought my faith back in scent bird +
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.
I personally didn’t like the smell of this perfume. I had never smelt it before so I wasn’t sure what to expect.
Love this scent, its light and not overpowering. Its fresh and clean smell. Love it
Don't like it at all , Smells like a old lady
not my thing,, don't like it
I love this scent. It is light and not overpowering. I've gotten so many compliments when I've worn this perfume.
OMG! This smells so good! Lasts all day and I have gotten so many compliments on it!
This is my favorite so far. So light and clean. Love it
I love all of David Yurman's fragrances from Fresh Essence to Exotic Essence, they each have a distinct undertone of classy, feminine, richness that stays with you all day. The Fresh Essence can be worn for every occasion even for every season and it's timeless. I love it!
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!
This has been my favorite scent, so far, in my queue. Clean, crisp but with a velvety softness and natural freshness unlike anything else I have experienced so far.
Not my favorite, but would use it until it's gone, it does have a fresh smell, but just not for me.
This smells like my Grandmother's Perfume. I hate it.
It was ok. Not my favorite but not my least favorite. I like the light sent, but it wasn't clean enough
Smells like a little old lady. Didn't like it at all.
Just not my type of fragrance. Smelled like cheap flowers -
This has a nice fresh scent but it doesn't last too long. At least for me.
Love this fresh fragrance.
Light and pretty
This was my first fragrance and it's not my cup of"tea". I'm not fond of floral fragrances and this has s bit too much of it.
I LOVE THIS PERFUME!! It has the perfect balance between sweet and floral yet almost understated. I would walk into a different room and catch a whiff of myself and was reminded how good it smelled. Never had that reaction to a perfume LOL Also its perfect for Spring!
I didn't like it at all! Reminded me of something my grandma would wear from Avon!
I actually did not care for it at all. Was just SO sweet and flowery. I gave it to my teenage daughter, and maybe she will wear it.
Absolutely in love!
Like so many perfumes these days being created by non-perfume houses, this so-so and not special. It is light for summer time wear. Would not leak my interest enough to purchase.
I like the scent, but it's pretty basic. I really wasn't getting anything spectacular out of it. I will definitely wear this as an every day scent, though. It's definitely not too overwhelming and will be nice for the summer.
A little strong
This was an ok scent for me. Not something that I would wear everyday. Its little strong.
Absolutely love one of my new favorites. I will get this one again
Absolutely impressed with the scent! I love it!! This is one that I will be purchasing a full-size bottle of in the future. The only downfall is, the scent doesn't last too long
This scent does remind me of a older women, I like the smell, definitely more flowery, and a tiny bit of powdery to me, but overall I do LIKE this perfume.
CLEAN, FRESH SHOWER FEELING. LAST LONG WITH A COOL FLORAL UNDERTONES THAT AR NOT OVERPOWRING. I LOVE THIS
LOved this perfume!
It's OK, not my favorite. A little too strong for me
It's ok. Alittle too floral and dtr
I could not tell if this was a man or women's fragrance. I will not be purchasing this one.
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!
Nice summer scent. Lasting.
I like this one. It is fresh and has the light floral undertones. For me it does last throughout the day. This is a good fragrance to wear daily, not too heavy or strong, but just enough.
While I adore the fragrance as it's very light and airy I have to agree with others that it doesn't last very long.
It was ok not for me
It's not strong. I didn't like it at first but now it is starting to grow on me.
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.
I didn't care for this scent. Faded quick
This is a VERY VERY strong scent, floral... It does smell good it's just strong and does not wear off quickly
Love love love
FANTASTIC FRAGRANCE! I'M IN LOVE!!!!
To floraly for my liking.
Love this scent!
I love this fragrance. It's a very fresh and clean scent.
Seriously smells like something my Grandma would wear. She has good taste but I like a more youthful sent
This fragrance reminds me somewhat of a man's fragrance not so feminine nonetheless it smells good it's just reminds me more towards the men's style fragrances probably will not get this one again !!
This perfume smells delicious. I love the smell and it stays on for a very long time. My husband loves it.
it was just ok.. not what i was expecting...not the worst but wouldn't order again
Too strong for me!👎🏼
It is a lovely, soft, clean scent, but it doesn't last more than 20-30 minutes on me. Disappointed in the longevity.
Very fresh clean scent. Different in a good way. I really like it!
Too flowery for my taste .
I love this scent. I wouldn't typically try this scent due to how strong it is. However once the scent settles in, I smell the apple and peony and its lovely.
I love it!!! Sophisticated smell.
I love the scent but it wears off really fast!
Very light and fresh. A little more on the floral side.
I love it!! Smells fresh
Finally!!! The first scent that I've liked. Nice and fruity, very nice!!! May have to buy a bottle.
Smells great, wears for long time. Very refreshing scent for everyday wear.
I love this scent....I have gotten many compliments!
Fresh like it says. Perfect for the daytime, at work, or just to give yourself a spritz whenever. The scent is a nice pick me up!! Love! 💖
Just a bit too floral to me but it still smells nice
Very light fresh scent.
Love Love Love! You really can't go wrong with any of the DY scents. I love them all (and have purchased all 3 since trying them out)!
Very fresh and energetic.
Smells fresh. 😍
Beautiful, fresh, light but lasting scent. Many compliments. I would definitely want to own a bottle of this.
Not my fave, a bit sharper and citrus then I personally prefer. It did have a unique note though.
Nice fragrance. bit strong at first but then it tapers off. Doesn't last very long. Anyhow, I would not place this in the fresh category. I can smell the musk and peony and slight green but it gives off more of a powdery scent to me
