Reviews of Bentley for Men Intense

It's horrible guys. Too heavy on the booze and the incense, really. The booze ain't really the problem, especially on the opening there are cognac and single malt whiskey notes.

But then.... comes this cloying, cheap, flimsy incense. Shame on the perfumer, seriously. I'm talking those cheap Chinese red incense sticks, no joke. Once you pick it up and recognize this, it's game over.Besides that, to no avail what so ever anymore, there is a vetiver like freshness, patchouli and some wood.

It's more suited as a scent for a room. And even then you'll get fed up with it in 5 minutes.I think those youtubers praising this stuff must've gotten paid.

So conclusion: maybe as a scent for the men's room or a market stand.

I heard the hype and wanted to like this perfume but it's just brutal, and not in the good way. Opens with a very rough, animalic odor (there's also something like green olives in there). Then it gets boozy but the animalic quality makes it an "alcohol breath" boozy, not the "freshly poured booze on the rocks" quality I had hoped for. There is a strong incense note but, once again, it has no gentleness, it's just a punch in the face. Definitely intense -- also definitely not my kind of intense.

I was expecting to like this one but it did something I wasn't prepared for.

Based on the notes I should love this, I love rum and I love boozy fragrances. However when I put this on my skin something in it sours and becomes unpleasant really quickly. Maybe it can only work in really cold weather? Today wasn't hot, but it wasn't cold either.

Then, on top of that, after an hour all that sourness, and the rest of the discernible notes go away and are replaced just by smoke. I don't begin to understand what happened but I didn't like the scent at any point I had it on. Which is so strange to me as this gets rave reviews, especially as a great boozy scent. I don't get the appeal. But I'll save my sample to try again in cold weather.

From January, 2015:

An excellent deal considering its price. Bentley Intense is a spicy, boozy-rum cedar and sandalwood fragrance tastefully obscured by a smokey cloud of unrestrained incense. As it develops, a rich vanillic accord emerges and rounds out the base with a cozy finish. Projection is strong and it lasts forever. This gets compared to Idole de Lubin quite often. Personally, I think Bentley smells better, though it's not as complex. Idole smells almost too boozy to wear and the rum is more palatable in Bentley. Plus, Bentley Intense lacks the prominent saffron note of Idole, which I don't mind in this case. This got hyped up for a while for good reason. It's not like anything else on the designer market and its quality would usually warrant a higher price. Recommended as a blind buy to those who like rum scents and woody-incense frags. Thumbs up.

UPDATE: The above review is from January, 2015. Since then, Bentley Intense has gone through at least one significant reformulation. But the last time I tried it it still smelled good, if not a bit weaker than the original. So in my experience it's still a good fragrance and worth checking out.

I was quite excited to get this given the reviews but was disappointed.

For me the overiding scent is medicinal - a camphorated menthol that reminds me of Tiger Balm or cough drops. Not pleasant at all. It does calm down after a while and is more like joss sticks. The supposed leather and rum don't make it through to my nose which is a shame as I'm a huge rum drinker.

I'm glad I only bought a decant.

My wife cannot stand it so it's never likely to get worn unless things go badly wrong at home!

This Nathalie Lorson gem is essentially linear, but it's rich enough to remain intriguing throughout its lifespan. Lorson, a canny perfumer when it comes to synthetics, uses the aromachemical fuzziness to produce an immaculately smooth blend without any sharp edges.

This isn't to say that there isn't anything forceful about this scent. Its projection and directness and longevity gives it a kind of brute-force masculinity: elegance and wealth presented with a bit of crass ostentatiousness.

Bentley for Men Intense's central boozy vanilla adorned with touches of incense and a unique kind of chemically treated car leather (this, I think, reads a bit "plastic"-y to certain noses, but it's what most makes Bentley for Men evocative of a luxury automobile).
