Essens perfumes are Essens flagship product. They are manufactured with the highest quality ingredients and contain 20% fragrance oil which means they are stronger than most high street brands.
Whilst you will never find any reference to any other brand either on the Essens website or in Essens catalogues the fact remains that Essens perfumes have been inspired by some of the top designer perfumes on the market today and smell almost identical to their more costly counterpart.
Are Essens perfumes fake or copies?
You could be forgiven for thinking that Essens perfumes are therefore fakes or cheap copies. Whilst it's true that Essens perfumes and aftershave are a fraction of the price of the fragrances that inspired them they has been no compromise on the quality of the ingredients and whilst they smell the same they are not copies.
Essens perfumes contain only natural ingredients and are left to cure naturally. As already mentioned more fragrance oil is used so the formulation is different. Essens do not claim that the perfumes are the same as other brands nor do they try to be that brand. The bottle is Essens own. The perfumes are known by codes and they bear Essens trade marks.
The fragrance i.e. the scented oils that go into the Essens perfumes cannot be copyrighted. How, for example, do you copyright the scent of a rose? So there has been no violation of intellectual property rights.
A fake or a copy would try to copy the bottle and try to dupe people into believing they are buying an original designer fragrance.
Essens are proud of their perfumes which are vegan, halal and contain less harsh chemicals than the high street brands and Essens take full credit for the fine perfumes they sell. The only brand name on an Essens perfume is Essens.
Essens perfumes are manufactured by Seluz. Based in Istanbul, Turkey Seluz has 6 master perfumers working for them who are considered to be the best in the world and they develop around 1500 fragrances annually. Seluz fragrances are used by some of the most important brands in Europe and other markets. In other words Seluz put the 'design' into the designer fragrances for the designer brands.
Every year Essens take some of their top performing distributors to the Seluz perfumery so they can see how the perfumes are made in Seluz's very own perfume school. Yes, Seluz have their very own perfume academy where young trainee perfumers are taught by master perfumers ensuring that fine fragrances will still be developed well into the future.
Are Essens fragrances tested on animals?
No, no Essens product is tested on animals.
Essens was founded in the Czech republic and therefore subject to EU legislation which bans animal testing of cosmetic products.
However, if it were not against the law, the testing of cosmetics on animals would completely fly in the face of what Essens stand for. Essens are keen supporters of the Ocean Clean up project, they care about the planet and everything living on it. Environmental sustainability is at the heart of everything they do from the Essens Home Clean range to the packaging that Essens UK use to deliver their products to the customer and everything in between.
Which designer brands have inspired Essens perfumes?
Several well known brands have been the inspiration behind Essens fragrances but you won't find any reference to those brands on any official Essens channel. Of course, prospective customers want to know which Essens perfume smells similar to their favourite brand so as a guide it is possible to obtain a full unofficial list from any Essens distributor but they are not permitted to display this publicly. You can download the Essens perfume list from our site as we are authorised distributors. The list is for personal use only and must not be distributed.
In conclusion, Essens perfumes are manufactured to the highest standard using only fine quality ingredients and are ethically produced. They are inspired by some of the top designer brands but are perfectly legitimate and above board so you can buy with confidence. They contain more fragrance oil than some of the big brands so smell stronger and last longer.
