Life Essence Fragrance Reviews

Fendi Life Essence is quintessentially Italian, citrus and woods mainly with some spices thrown in. It is a sunny, bright, happy fragrance, probably a tad on the unisex side so I can see why it puts some guys off as a reading of the notes alone looks very masculine but they way it is blended is in a slightly different direction. A woman could pull this off easily. It starts off with a spicy citrus blast, I get the bergamot, citrus and cardamom and then the woody notes start coming in. The dry down is mainly sandalwood and cedar with some sweetness and some floral notes. This is the kind of perfume, if you like it, is flexible enough to be worn anywhere anytime. I can see it working with a suit at the office or in shorts and sandals, just go easy on the sprayer as it can get cloying if over sprayed. works for all seasons except maybe in the height of summer after noon heat. Pretty great with a couple of sprays for summer nights though. Projection and longevity are pretty good on me so no issues there. I dont wear it often since it's been discontinued and I am trying to make my bottle last but whenever I do, it puts me in a right cheerful mood. It is like the sunny Italian countryside in spring condensed into a bottle, cant help but put a smile on your face. I like it. 7/10

Edit - My opinion that this could be unisex got seconded in the most indisputable way. One of my best friends was over at my place and she was randomly smelling stuff on my dresser and she sniffed the cap, sprayed a little on her wrists and instantly loved it. Needless to add, my bottle has found a new home!!

Found this yesterday at a shop for 8$, bought it but wasn't as impressed as I was hoping to be. Not as woody as I thought but will test it out more to see if my nose evolves to catch it differently.

It's such a shame Fendi stopped making this fragrance. Its beautiful and was my favourite. It was a fragrance that wherever I went women would say OMG what are you wearing its divine. unfortunately being gay I didn't get the same reaction from men but I can tell you the girls love it. Fendi you need to bring back this fragrance

Fendi made a masterpiece in 1996 with Life Essence. This is a perfect combination of citrus and woods. I purchased this cologne back in 2003 and I still own the same bottle today mainly becuase I thought it smelled too mature for my age at the time. Now looking at Fendi 10 years later, I can say this cologne is a masculine beast. This is perfect for the spring season because the combination of the citrus and woody notes give off a fresh wet vibe. Almost compared to rain showers. For longevity, I get 7 hrs. The sillage is moderate. Overall this fragrance is outstanding. It's a shame Fendi pulled the plug on this one.

i fell in love with this in a perfume shop some Christmases ago, but when i came back home i couldn't remember what was on my right hand near the right elbow :D ! After thorough investigation the culprit was found and the goods confiscated..

Later on Fendi discontinued it (you nuts ppl??) Totally unisex, veeery long lasting, unique, sexy and elegant.. and lovable under woolen sweaters on cold winter days :)

Gorgeous. Perfect for summer and the monsoons. No sharp notes at all. Quite feminine in my opinion. Husband used it too, and agreed it was more of a feminine scent.

Gentle, fresh and alluring.Soft citrus, spices and a drydown that surprises you with it's delicacy. Dont think it can be offensive at all. And would suit all age groups, except teen's ofcourse.

Very HARD TO FIND.

P.S- Would appreciate any suggestions for a similar smelling parfum, this one is too hard to find.

Pure bliss. It was the perfect summer follow up to Fendi Uomo. It was not a flanker by any means. Quite contrary. It was an original composition that remained loyal to the original. As if the original wasnt enough to make me a fanatic!

This was clean, crisp and intelligent beyond anything on the market today. It was very warm weather friendly that kept you feeling fresh showered all day. The notes harmonized flawlessly. I always expected a sweetness. It was always very dry.

Now its gone, like so many classics and all that I am left with is an empty bottle...

It is just “mmm…) how great it smells” - a perfect mix of wood, bergamot and fresh citrus. As simple as that! Miss it so much! True masterpiece of Fendi.

After trying this F.L.E I bought 10 ml of that with no thinking over, because I very much liked it, if not to say, I fell in love with. As I'm not good at remembering the names, types, brands of perfumes, I was sure it was a feminine EDT, since I'd found it tender and beautiful enough. Anyway, I'M JUMPING WITH JOY, the shop-girl said it's probably gonna disappear, and I'm going to smell great - a man told me today there's a stylish aroma following me around.

Fendi Life Essence is a very fresh, clean fragrance, stuns its linearity, the opening is very crisp with citrus and a reminder of the grape skins but also the flowers are very sharp, jasmine (which I love)
hot and seductive and the bottom forested wood and sandalwood.
This fragrance has a gift for me back in time, always leaving a certain nostalgia for the scents of more than a decade ago.
Life Essence is something aristocratic
but incredibly, the hand, with Life Essence brings a fresh fragrance and discreet, no fanfare ... might remember Bulgari pour Homme Life Essence but I find it much better ...... and then this note indefinite and impalpable that nostalgia
turns into a dream.
Freud does not teach here.

I truly love this scent. It's simple yet sophisticated like a white tank you can wear anytime anywhere, it's my first choice when don't know what to "wear". Also, I found out it's perfect for layering. I know, some people would want to kill me for that, but I like using it together with my all-time favourite Daim Blond to add some citrus-woody edge.

Life Essence is the third woodiest scent I own (Gucci Pour Homme and Gucci Rush are the first and second respectively. It really grabbed me from the first time I smelled it. It has excellent lasting power on me, easily lasting a working day. To me it's mainly a woody scent with some florals, and I don't understand its classification here as an Oriental Spicy. I can't detect anything Oriental about it.
Regards.

Life Essence and Cerruti SI are my all time favorites! Life Essence is a very special unisex fragrance. I love the cypress notes, geranium and coriander as well. On my skin it stays very very long. I hope Life Essence will be available in the future. It's getting harder to find it...

You're right on the money Kiselina. I also respectfully submit that Life Essence is a uinsex frag. Everything about this fragrance is just right, from the bottle, to its cap, to the juice itself. Great woody base notes perfect for the office and great for weekends. This is a creative piece that has no equal.

In my opinion, this is a woody-citrus fragrance. It opens with a citrus explosion-lemon and bergamot, accompanied by cypress and astringent freshness from the geranium. The rest is coniferous woods- cedar, pine, and oakmoss as well.
Refreshing and lasting fragrance, suitable both for men and women.
The bottle and especially the wooden cap get on together well with the perfume itself.
