  • There is no such single English word that would convey such precise meaning in this context. "Treatise", for example, conveys only the formality aspect. (It would also tend to imply something longer than an "essay").

An adjective for fluent, smooth, and formal? Elegant.

One word for for a fluent, smooth, and formal essay? I like disquisition.

But be careful:

an essay that is both fluent,smooth and formal?

Fluent, smooth, and formal are three things. The word "both" can only cover two things.
