quinta essentia

The last few days have been quintessentially July.

essence:
the intrinsic nature or indispensable quality of something, especially something abstract, which determines its character
a property or group of properties of something without which it would not exist or be what it is
from the Latin essentia, “be”

quintessence:
the most perfect or typical example of a quality or class
the aspect of something regarded as the intrinsic and central constituent of its character
a refined essence or extract of a substance
a fifth substance in addition to the four elements, (earth, water, air, fire,) thought to compose the heavenly bodies and to be latent in all things
from the Latin quinta essentia, “fifth essence”
