About Prada L'Homme Intense

The company say:

L’Homme Prada Intense expresses the multiplicity of male identity through intense Amber and Patchouli notes that cross paths with the floral refinement of Iris, while the introduction of Tonka Beans brings an airy, oriental dimension to the top end.

Reviews of Prada L'Homme Intense

After having worn Prada L'Homme Intense a few times, I feel it speaks to me more about the mainstream modern masculines than what it exactly is. It is a mainstream modern masculine, the ubiquitous 2018 mall fragrance, but done at a level that is several notches above the average competition. Daniela Andrier, who's been creating perfumes for Prada for over a decade, has created a fragrance that has its roots in Dior Homme, but is more mass appealing (if that is possible? Wasn't Dior Homme mass appealing?). L'Homme Intense, of course, is directly related to Prada L'Homme, which is in similar ballpark, albeit fresher and more powdery. L'Homme Intense has notes of iris, tonka - essentially a toned down "lipstick accord" from Dior Homme / Dior Homme Intense, with a touch of leather, the leather that is apparent in the Dior Homme DNA. On my skin, L'Homme Intense has subdued but noticeable sillage, and a solid duration of at least six hours based in moderate weather.

Now I intend to discuss my principal issue with L'Homme Intense: it smells as if I've spent all day at Sephora. Again, one could do far worse. However, the detraction in this case is the loss of the personal. It doesn't smell like a person, but rather captures the smell of the perfume aisle of the shopping mall (perhaps because that's what they spray in the air?). It is intended as a more serious fragrance (as opposed to a fun, sporty cologne), but it is not sensuous or intimate. This is not (only) my personal take, but the opinion of three non-perfumista friends. It also does smell a tad synthetic (what doesn't, these days?), but because the central underlying accord doesn't have any occurrence or parallel in nature, rather than any clumsy treatment or issues of budget (I believe that any such thing wouldn't be composed/released by Andrier/Prada). L'Homme Intense, nonetheless, marks a solemn personal moment of "not how it used to be": it definitely cannot replace on my shelf any of the earlier Prada favourites - Amber pour Homme, Infusion d'Homme or Amber pour Homme Intense.

Prada L'Homme Intense is an absolutely gorgeous fragrance that exceeds - in every way - its original inception, Prada L'Homme.

A wistful iris note dominates the opening, accompanied by a patchouli note that is unrivaled in designer perfumery. The lipstick-like iris sticks around for the duration of wear - just in the background - and balances the patchouli in a way that avoids resemblance to incense or cheap soap. I appreciate how the iris stays for the duration of wear, unlike Dior Homme (the promising iris opening seems to evaporate within an hour). Amber and leather warm the scent fantastically and make Prada L'Homme Intense a wonderful choice for fall or winter.

In practice, Intense reminds me of a rich dark fougère, with a slightly less-powdery dry down than Gaultier's Le Male. It is complex despite its simplicity, familiar despite its innovation, and comforting beyond belief. L'Homme Intense may replace Le Male and D&G's The One as my affordable, easily-obtained winter go to. Longevity is impressive, though sillage is merely average. Big thumbs up.

Soft and playful but also elegant and dressy..this is well blended and the iris mixture almost tastes edible but not in a gourmand way, more a chalky pastille way, like parma violet confectionary. Unisex in my opinion and very fancy dandy for a trend setting male. I'm Slightly dissapointed by performance as I would of liked a little more silage and projection but ultimately this is really classy and sexy. This is different enough from uomo intense and dior homme to warrant a purchase in my opinion, although it is iris dominant there is enough of a twist to get me excited with the excellent use of amber and tonka, all in all a solid well put together night out fragrance.

I have to admit that I like this version much more than the original. Less powdery, bigger accent on the soapiness which gives the scent an aromatic character en par with CW and GIT but not actually copying them. Not a master piece, but a very good fragrance considering a lot of designer offerings for the last 5 years.

More formal, more masculine and more self in style and character. Simply better.


Originality 6/10
Scent 9/10
Longevity 8/10
Projection 7/10

A formal scent which has great depth and elegance. Prada L’Homme Intense EdP has a lot going on within it, yet it comes across as simple and predictable. Iris is definitely the star of this show, heavy and moderately accented by the other notes (esp. the patchouli).

Overall, this EdP is sweet, spicy and floral; it won’t appeal to everyone, and it seems fairly constrained to be worn in high-brow occasions, given its sweetness and intensity (the way that classic Chanel Egoiste does). Christian Dior’s pour Homme Eau also is an iris-laden gem, yet by comparison it can be worn on different occasions all day long.

But I truly appreciate the composition, containing notes which I have come to like in many other fragrances. It builds upon the EdT with supercharged results, and I’d say give it a test and compare it to Prada L'Homme EdT before buying. Thumbs up for me at any rate. :^)

A nice powdery Iris with a Tonka sidekick was the first notes I noticed. A mellow leather note soon follows(good job with that)and makes it a bit more masculine and decent fragrance. Fall and Winter seems to be a good time to wear this one. 7/10
