Essence means "the very nature of something that defines what it is"
"The essence of my dad is humility (or humor or arrogance or gluttony, etc.)"

It means the core, crux, heart, root, or real (whatever) of the person, idea, etc. For example, the essence of the abortion issue is whether those who are not wealthy will be able to get the care they deserve.

Essence implies "importance",I think.
