I can't bring myself to think of this as a 'car' fragrance: they are invariably mediocre. I prefer, therefore, to associate this estimable scent not with the Bentley of automotive renown, but with Edmund Clerihew Bentley, creator of the poetic form which stands at the apex of our literary canon: the Clerihew.
The rules of the Clerihew are simple: single stanza, four lines; two couplets; erratic scansion; biographical in subject matter.
Has done much worse than
This frankincense demerara fog.
Encre Noir was a dog.

Bentley Intense-not nearly as "mature" smelling as I had invisioned this one being. Alluring and unique woody, sweet, boozy, resinous smell. Good projection and very long lasting. Not my style, but definitely respect this one....Ms. Lorson's creations rarely disappoint. Hard to find a much more rich and luxurious smell at this price point IMHO.
Smells like powdery plastic berries, woods and incense. A wannabe Jubilation XXV, try harder. If this is considered the better of the 2 original releases, then I don't even wanna try Bentley for Men.
Initially, I was skeptical that a car fragrance could be as good as people have claimed it is. To make matters worse, the only fragrance store that had one, did not have a tester. I asked if they would have a tester soon and the manager said she would open it for me.
One wiff and I was sold, it really is a great leather scent. Smells kind of a spicy DG - The One with strong leather.
full tilt drugstore fragance feel and ...appeal!
Is this 'designer' or 'niche'. The fragrance is made in France but the company seems to be German. A bit like Linari. Widely available though.
What I get is a sort of hybrid between Costume National PH and Bel Ami with a touch of incense.
Quite beautiful and long lasting.
