The Intense version has more pronounced patchouli notes, and is a little "darker" than the regular Rive Gauche. (By the way, there's also Rive Gauche Light on the market -- I see it regularly at my local Marshall's.) If you like patchouli and just a bit more longevity, try the Intense. Someone had it with a BNIB price on eBay recently for $29.99 for a 2.5 oz. bottle.
