There is something about Estee Lauder fragrances that don't quite agree with my chemistry.
Pleasures Intense is fresh, flowery and certainly pleasant, but it is one of those scents that I'd imagine one to tire of quickly.
The opening turned rather bitter on my skin and was actually quite heavy and sticky. I disliked being shrouded in a cloud of this when I had only applied a small squirt to my wrist.
The heart of Pleasures Intense was a warmer yet smoother blend of florals, with the lily and jasmine creating that all too familiar 'bouquet of flowers' type of smell.
This isn't the type of fragrance that you would wear if you were to impress someone, especially the opposite sex. Pleasures Intense is more like the scent you would wear on a Summer's day while out walking the dog, sitting drinking cups of tea or digging around in the garden.
My advice, if you don't like heavy florals, stay away from this one.
I smelled this scent on a woman at church, i liked it so much i asked her what it was. i loved the faint floral scent emanating from her.....smells great! I'm not sure of what flowers were used in its make up if i had to guess I would say a touch of carnation with a hint of lilac and??? She said she only uses it sparingly but....very nice.

Thank goodness I got this cheap on eBay. I love the original and I love the Delight version but this is nothing like either. Horrible. Starts off as fly spray and warms up to cheap washing up liquid. In fact, I have nicer washing up liquids.
lets be clear: i despise pleasures, but this intense version is very pretty. the pink peony is dramatic and pronounced in this pink juice.
i'm a big peony fan though. i imagine this would work great on a summer night.
That perfume is quite weird. Not in a bad way. It smells very "pink"!
Not Pleasures, not intense...more like 'watered down'! I just don't get this one.
