Essencial Masculino Fragrance Reviews


There is much to be said about this scent, which was released in 1995, in Eau de Parfum concentration, putting the male fragrances of Natura on the same level of the international fragrances that Brazilians wanted, but could only get by paying exorbitant prices or ordering with friends and relatives. Seems like it was yesterday, but the 80's and 90's still suffered from the lack of globalisation, which brought so many benefits since the 2000 years.

Essencial Masculino is classified as sensual-woody, but can navigate through other categories, such as aromatic, fougère and chypre.
It has notes of black pepper from Madagascar, bergamot, lavender, galbanum, nutmeg from Indonesia, Juniper, grapefruit and a hint of basil, in the output. Sage, geranium and patchouli rule the heart, which also counts with notes of Rosemary and Jasmine. Oak Moss, sandalwood and Cedar form the most intense accords of the base, which still has nuances of musk, amber, fir and myrrh.

I had the chance to meet the vintage version (the term applies, since it was launched 20 years ago), which was a little different from this one. Formerly, the fragrance was more aromatic, from the moment it touched the skin. Then, became more vibrant and woody, without being too green or too forest. In this current version, I feel much more citrus output, with more of the nuances of bergamot and grapefruit. It takes a while for that evolution happens and the scent that was familiar to me arise again. But when it comes, is a mixture of nostalgia and joy.

On my skin, Essencial Masculino follows the woody-aromatic style that transmits elegance, is versatile for our climate (Brazil) and has very good projection, with excellent durability. It’s a great choice for everyday use and professional environment, whatever it is.
It is currently labeled as deo-parfum, which is our equivalent for Eau de Parfum, within the new rules of nomenclature for Brazilian fragrances.
With respect to the bottle, the version that I'm reviewing is different from the picture above, which is part of the current visual identity, with brown lid and straight finishing, with silver applications over the lid bringing the Natura brand. But this scent went through two changes of image at least. When it was released, had a blue lid with diagonal cut at the top and silver finishing at the base of the lid. Then, the lid kept the same, but happened to be brown, like in the picture above.

For those not familiar with this scent, when it was released in 1995, was considered a Brazilian version of Cacharel Pour Homme (1981). The latter I haven't met, but I know of other that maintained the same fame and which is among one of my favorites, in addition to being released in the same year (1995): Quartz Pour Homme.

Although the Kaiak line is the most famous within the male universe of the brand, the Essencial line is considered the most top among consumers. It also grew, gaining some flankers, like: Essencial Intenso, Essencial Exclusivo and Essential Estilo.
To finish, a quote from the video, which I love: "Only the essential remains in memory".

One of the best Brazilian perfume I know.
Longevity good and silage.
Most suitable for cold and night with mild climates.


Although it is a Brazilian eau de parfum, it is not so strong in a way that could annoy someone, it smells creamy and soft.

Unfortunately, the softness of this fragrance translates the weak concept of its fixation, even though it is labelled as an eau de parfum; I could get just 6 hours at maximum. However, its sillage is really good, and the combination of notes is something unique.



Love it! Cedar and nutmeg makes my day. Creamy scent.
On me:

Sillage: Really Great
Longevity: Excelent (7h+)


Yes, this EDP is our alternative to expensive Cacharel pour Homme.

Le "l'echapée belle" brasilienne.
