    Default L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme Intense vs L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme

    Which one do you like better, is L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme Intense different then the original and how is the longevity?

    I have tried the original, but not the Intense verison im thinking that the Intense verison might bring me more fun.

    I don't like the intense version. It's too aromatic woodsy compared to the original one. The original is more effervescent.

    The intense version lasts far less & has much less sillage. Kind of ironic. I found the intense to be a boring, dull 'woods-ey' fragrance that didn't have much direction or point.

    I find that the intense last just as long as the original version - which is a very long time on my skin with great sillage.

    I have to say the more woody / incense notes added in the intense make the fragrance smell strange and gross in my oppinion.

    Intense doesn't last as long on me as the original does.
    I quite like Intense, but like the original more.

    The intense version seems "artificially intensified". In other words, it is intensified by adding strong notes, and in this case, they are also dissonant.

    Still prefer the original even after much sampling and trying. I like LDIssey for its "freshness" and the original has more of that than the intense

    I love and own both. Like others have said Intense has less longevity and sillage.
