Reviews of L'Eau d'Issey pour Homme Intense

Bold turbocharged retake of the original L'Eau d'Issey pour Homme. This Intense version doesn't come across as dark per se; rather a richer, deeper formulation with the following notes in the triangle:

Top - tangerine, yuzu, bergamot, orange
Heart - nutmeg, blue lotus, cinnamon, saffron, cardamom
Base - amber, papyrus, benzoin, incense, grey ambergris

As can be imagined, the introductory spray is a citrus face smack! The yuzu comes across as starchy-thick. Heart notes contain a similar formula of ingredients as with the original, along with fancy lotus (can't detect it because I don't know what it smells like) and cardamom for a mentholated touch.

This flanker may not be for everyone; it has a thick feel that is unlike the airy, aromatic fresh quality of the original.

Peppery, fresh and clean but too much bitterness, not enough sweet-citrus for me to enjoy in the beginning. Maybe I'm just wishing it was more like the non-intense version, which I do like very much.

Feels like a dressed up version of the original, as if Intense was what you wear to formal events. More green and bitter, less citrusy sweet.

The drydown is very nice. Sweeter but still plenty of clean freshness. This does smell more like the original. Also, better longevity than the original. Does not project as well as the original, low projection throughout on my skin.

All I can say is this fragrance is right up my alley and just the way I like my fragrances, bold and outstanding.To my nose this is definitely a jacked-up version of the original but with an undertone of a familiar note from Armani Code.

This is some strong stuff. Nothing like the original to me. Starts to get into 80's powerhouse territory for me. Almost too intense for the first hour, however the drydown is very nice. Not a work cologne to me, this would be a Sunday afternoon chillin by yourself scent... Probably not full bottle worthy.

What the hell is this? Did we really need an *Intense* version of something that it was already exhausting in the first place?

No, we didn't.

Screechy, sharp, sticky and intrusive woody-citrus with a incensey facet. As powerful as plutonium and just as bad.

EW!

Starts off with a mix of spice (pepper and cardamom) and hints of oak, tobacco and talcum powder. Dries down with more musk and vanilla, but with spicy undertones. After a couple of hours, the spice wears down with the musk/vanilla remaining, with the woodiness returning.

Solid projection, longevity (12+ hours) and sillage, without being overpowering. It’s a mature scent; definitely for men 30+. It smells 'corporate' (for want of a better word), and it also smells like quality. Good for the office, as well as Friday after-work drinks. Could be worn all year round, but probably slightly more suitable for autumn/winter.

Overall, it's a little more complex that I expected. I like it.
