Essence Rare Fragrance Reviews


Wonderful, Loving and sensual memories......The Scent of Paradise in a crystal vial.
....Kisses of Love in abundance when this utterly intoxicating perfume was unleashed.....I am in tears, firstly when I recall the wonderful scented nights of love.
Secondly because it is IMPOSSIBLE to source Houbigants ESSENCE RARE.
There is NOTHING like it at all - I have searched for nearly 20 years for something similar to this enveloping, gentle and purely lovely scent. All to no avail.
It was one of the most exciting yet simple fragrances of all time.
Oh!, if they would only re launch this floral, mystical creation. The scents now are either 'bubble gum' and 'candy' for youngsters or strange 'Alien' 'plastic' smells. Then there are the huge 'sandalwood' orientals. The 'Floral' ones have too many scents in them.
ESSENCE RARE had very, very few flower fragrances in - that was the splendour of it.


One of the most beautiful evocative scents - EVER. Paradise would smell like this. If heaven existed this would be its scent. This was true Fairyland for the senses.


A very, very chique vintasge perfume. For a classic chique lady or Gentleman. One could not compare iT with the common perfumes from these days.. It is like walking through a fairytale forest with your Cashmire sweater, woody, elegant, sensual and powerful! overloaded with Civet and aldehydes
