You’re not missing anything
I personally smell a very easy perfume, that typical designer shower gel vibe, like adidas or axe.

Yes, it reminds of millesime imperial but on a budget and only in a small 30 min time, before that is watermelony clean shower gel, and after that is just a sport shower gel.

If you like that vibe, go for it but not at its full price :-)

An ok mint/musk based fragrance...
After several years of wanting this, I've finally pulled the trigger. Well, for the price I've paid I can say that its ok...not great. At least I can now cross it out of my list.

The musk here is not the animalic, dirty musk found in darker musk based fragrances but rather a clean, fresh laundry type of musk.

On first spray, only two notes are very prominent: mint and musk. At this stage, the scent is bitter, cold, and fresh. It has a cooling effect, like when you're chewing mint gum. Unfortunately, it has a tendency to irritate my throat if inhaled deeply.

The mids are better and less in-your-face. This is where the other notes emerge as the dominating mint and musk subside. Watermelon, citruses and spices become more noticable.

The drydown is linear continuing from the heart and continues like this until it fades.

Longevity is average. Around 6 hours tops even though its an EDP.

Fragrances that are similar to this are:

Victorinox Swiss Army Altitude, Kenneth Cole Black, Nautica Voyage N-83 and Bvlgari Aqua.

If I'm a little bit younger, I would probably loved this but I've found out my tastes are changing as I'm growing old. This is only a solid like.

The water cucumber
Expeditions into the Perfume Realm, episode 1424: The Water Cucumber. This is how a documentary about Ferrari's Musk Essence could start.

I ordered this fragrance in summer, mainly because I was looking for a newbie with melon. In addition, the performance sounded promising. And to get that straight away: Musk Essence is really convincing in this respect. The watermelon, on the other hand, is not perceived as such by me - I lack the typical fruit sweetness. Instead, I smell a rather acidic watery freshness that reminds me of cucumber. Therefore I come here instead of watermelon on water cucumber.

Around this water cucumber there are further herb fresh notes and a rather cool aquatic, reinforced by some mint. With fantasy, you can perceive a little lavender, vetiver and the musk that gives the name to it later on. But I need a lot of imagination for that one. In general, I would say that all the aromas used are rather on the pale, watery side. And artificial as well.

Is this all good or bad? Yes, both. The freshness is long-lasting and you could call Essence Musk technically and functionally successful for a summer freshman. Unfortunately I find the fragrance itself rather bland and inharmonious to dull. The synthetics are quite loud and sometimes even aggressive. It's not really "beautiful". And yet last summer I pulled out the bottle more than I expected. It's weird.

There's probably something about this water cucumber..

An unexpected surprise! A blind buy, perfect for sparkling spring, with aquatic musky citrus notes built around an overdose of white musk!
