I think Pleasures Intense had a soft launch at some stores in the US, because some basenoters have already sampled it. Untill now there wasn't any info available on the web, not even on Estee Lauder.com.

Moodiereport.com is the first to have a feature.

UK. Estée Lauder has created a new version of its Pleasures for Men fragrance, exclusively for the travel retail channel.

Pleasures Intense for Men Cologne Spray began rolling out in the channel last month. It follows on from the feminine scent Pleasures Exotic (The Moodie Report.com, 4 October 2004), the company’s first travel retail exclusive fragrance.

The juice, described as a charismatic wood, opens on notes of bergamot, grapefruit, kiwi, basil and a green leaf accord. The heart is a blend of tomato leaf, celery, orris and water violet flower; the base features a masculine skin accord, combined with vetiver, amber and cedar wood.

In design terms the flacon is a reworked edition of the Pleasures For Men original. For the new version the bottle is coloured blue and topped with a silver cap. The outer carton sports a subtle blue/silver striped design.

Pleasures Intense for Men Cologne Spray is available as a 50ml and 100ml, plus a 50ml duo.

(Note: Pleasures Intense for Women, launched in 2002, is available both domestically and in travel retail).
