    Arrow L'eau d'issey/L'eau d'issey intense

    Hi Basenote-Members

    What is the diffrence between L'eau d'issey (I've smelled it) and L'eau d'issey intense?
    Which one would you recommend (everyday, signature)?
    Do you find l'eau d'issey too feminin (flowery)?
    Did you get any compliments?


    Thanks

    I wore regular Isse for years right after it came out. It it one of the many "fresh, light" frags along the lines Aqua di Gio that exploded in the 90s. Haven't tried the Intense.

    It is not feminine per se, just a bit overused and too "generically fresh and lightweight" for me.
    I don't think of it as floral at all, though I suppose there are some floral notes in it.

    I got frequent compliments from women, yes. While I often prefer stronger, darker stuff like Caraceni 1913, Anteus or Van Cleef and Arpels Pour homme, there are a lot of women that prefer the lighter stuff.

    Nobody will likely say it's not a good scent, it just got a bit overused for many of us like AdG.

    I do really enjoy the original. I sampled the Intense only once, but ended up washing it off. I didn't like it at all. It's not just a more intense version of the original. It's an entirely different scent.

    As far as the feminine question goes - It doesn't really scream "manly", but it's certainly not feminine either. There are many guys on here that own and love it, if that tells you anything. I personally love the musk in the dry down.

    I also heard that the original is far better than intense and that the intense does smell differntly
