    Default NEW: Prada Amber PH Intense

    This has me totally stoked as I think the original is one of the best men's scents in the last decade.. heck, one of my favorite men's scents EVER!

    Anyhow, this is taken from Fragrantica ( http://www.fragrantica.com/news/Prad...ense-1932.html )



    Here comes the good news for all those lovers of classical elegance from the prestigious fashion house of Prada. It is the new, reinterpreted and more intensive version of their debut male fragrance from 2006 Amber Pour Homme, named Amber Pour Homme Intense.

    Amber Pour Homme Intense defines that sophistication and masculinity of the original perfume and intensive aroma of amber with exquisite high-quality ingredients, in order to maintain the blend of tradition and modern trends that is immanent to Prada.

    The oriental fougere composition highlights Italian bergamot, Somalia myrrh, Indonesian patchouli and vanilla from Madagascar as the main ingredients. Bergamot causes sparkly and fresh opening; hot and spicy resin of myrrh creates a rich and intense aroma; patchouli is attractive and seductive, while vanilla is a gentle and warm, completing the fragrance together with amber.

    Notes: bergamot, myrrh, patchouli, vanilla, amber

    The bottle is designed like its predecessor: narrow and rectangular with a silver plate inscribed with the fragrancesĺ main notes. The new bottle is colored in intensive black, packed in an elegant gray box featuring the house logo.

    Kind of sad not to see any orange blossom or saffron listed, though. Also, I hope it's not actually stronger as far as longevity and projection go, but instead perhaps just a more traditionally masculine take on the theme presented by the original. Guess I'll have to wait and see...

    I see no need for this fragrance. Prada needs to come out with something new - not another Amber or Infusion flanker. Move along already.......

    The Prada Intense for woman is not any stronger then the regular version - just a diffrent mix on notes. I would not have my hopes up that this is going to be longer lasting with sillage.

    Agree 100%. I liked Amber Pour Homme and Infusion, but they are a tad on the feminine side. Here's hoping for a more masculine version.

    Looks like it may be out now. It's on the Nordstroms website. from the site:

    A captivating new scent for men, Amber Pour Homme Eau de Toilette Intense re-awakens the core elegance of the original Prada Amber Pour Homme.

    Four years after the launch of Amber Pour Homme, Prada has opened an intense new chapter in its amber family of fragrances, with a hypnotic and uncompromising fix for aficionados of this heritage accord. A pared-back roster of exceptional-quality raw ingredients is blended with the modern elegance typical of Prada fragrances, without clichÚ, in a search for the true heart of amber. Peeling back the layers of leather and barbershop soap present in the original scent, sensual patchouli and rich, warm vanilla are the stars of this distinctive cocktail; at once unexpected and recognizable, like a long-lost friend. Spicy myrrh and a citrus twist of bergamot complete the fragrance.

    The ingredients:
    - Italian bergamot: One of the essential ingredients of all great colognes, this citrus note is extracted by cold-pressing the zest of an almost-ripe fruit. It brings a sparkling freshness to the fragrance.
    - Myrrh resin from Somalia: This warm, spicy note is reminiscent of journeys and magic. It brings fullness and depth to the fragrance.
    - Patchouli leaves from Indonesia: This intoxicating note is one of the most recognizable elements of amber. Its seductive charm rounds off the fragrance.
    - Vanilla: Smooth vanilla from Madagascar adds warmth to the fragrance and completes the amber story.

    The bottle and packaging: A slender rectangular bottle but in an intense black finish bearing a silver plaque engraved with ingredients links Amber Pour Homme Eau de Toilette Intense with the original. A textile label adorns saffiano finishing packaging, making a subtle connection with Prada's mood.

    * Limited edition.
    * By Prada.

    I placed an order with Nordstrom for this today. Their description is what sold me. Finally amber will be noticeable in Prada Amber Intense. Thanks for posting that they had it. It ships on the 11th due to backorder. The code "Beauty" makes shipping a flat rate 5 bucks for all fragrances a beauty supplies BTW.

    Edit: Ship date has been pushed to 2/22/2011

    I love the original Prada Amber Pour Homme, very classy, very expensive smelling.

    Both Infusion d'Homme and Prada Amber Pour Homme have a soupy clean accord to it, I appreciate both as they are. However I think Amber Pour Homme is more interesting and more complex than Infusion d'Homme, not as linear relative to Infusion d'Homme, although I believe both scents do not journey much in the drydown from start to finish.

    Looking forward to this latest release.

    But I have to say I'm getting a little bit bored of their well-known signature soap accords, they do vary their soap accords very well, Fleur d'Orange, Iris, Vetiver and Tuberose etc. but they should think of ways of expanding their portfolio, it's getting a little boring...

    Finally got the opportunity to try this today. Honestly, I am somewhat underwhelmed. The good news is that in my opinion, this is much smoother and better blended than the original. It is also a bit darker as well. I get a slight hint of Rive Gauche PH in here too. I never sampled Rive Gauche Light PH, but this is how I would imagine it would smell in the dry down. I know everyone who is reading this is thinking this sounds awesome! In theory it is, but I can't help but think that this is less than the sum of its parts. As for the downside, once the bergamot in the top notes fades, the scent doesn't change at all for its duration. Also, maybe it's just me but this scent just wears very flat and one dimensional. This would make an ideal office scent. It would also be a good choice for someone who typically isn't a fan of fragrances. Longevity seems to be pretty good. Sillage is ok, but somewhat restrained.

    The Nordstrom by me didn't have testers, so I had to buy this blind. I will test it further for a week or two to see if my opinion changes at all, but as of right now, I don't believe this is bottle worthy...

    That's a good thing for me, since I'm not a fan of the original's cloying soapy accord.

    I'm a big fan of amber and myrrh notes. Are either of these two dominant in the intense version?

    Our local Nordstrom has it. It's very nice. I get more incense than the original. Is it something I would personally buy - No. I have and like the original Prada Amber pour Homme - and I don't find this one significantly different enough that I would need both in my collection. I would rather spend my money elsewhere.

    I would love to see Prada branch out and do something different than Amber and Infusion flankers.

    This makes me even more anxious to get this Prada. I like the soapy smell but have always wished for more depth/darkness in this frag.

    I'm off to Mass to pray for the heretic who created this!

    Really, this is not that bad but it harkens to the Canali attempts at making an eau de parfum flanker for its fragrance line. The opening notes are deep, slightly creamy, and in keeping with the Prada Amber edt. Unfortunately, the initial punch does not linger for very long and the duration is not what I expect with regards to an edp.

    Dior and YSL have respectively created wonderful Intense edp versions of Dior Homme Intense and Opium homme eau de parfum. Why the Italians can't do this makes me crazy!

    I bought the Prada Amber Intense after I had had a wonderful Italian lunch with a bunch of elderly gentlemen from Abruzzi, Molise, and Lazio...Calabria, too. So, I was in Fellini heaven and wanted a purchase to end the day right.

    Packaging is a bit ruined by the black square Prada badge on top of the Prada lettering. A bit silly, really. But the bottle and its color is fine.

    About 6/10 for overall execution. Another reason for which I will lay down my life for Opium homme eau de parfum.

    Anyone have a bottle of Halston Amber Man that they'd like to trade for my Prada Amber Intense 100ml? (99 per cent full).

    Rarely do I buy a fragrance unsmelled, although it has happened. Yesterday was a case in point.

    Prada Amber Intense for Men had just been uncrated yet no samples were available. Based on my initial purchase of their first offering 5 years ago, I decided to give it a whirl.

    Well, guys, "pared down" as I read somewhere, granted it is. None of the soapy barbershop quartet note. BUT - and here it comes -you just have to like vanilla. I purchased the fragrance on the merits of the myrrh component, but this is not strong enough.

    It's a very burly fragrance, a dark, brooding smell, there's no doubt about that. Reminiscent of M7, not in odour, but in punch. Its sillage is powerful.

    In fact, I would even venture so far as to liken it to Amen's Pure Malt (without the malt ). Prada Pour Homme Amber Intense (someone, pls come up with a proper acrynoym!) is tarrry and has that dark chocoloate, black coffee, peaty note to it, probably due to the vanilla when paired with the strong patchouly component.

    At any rate, fans of the aforementioned Pure Malt should be very satisfied.

    The fragrance was purchased at The Bay where it has been available since Friday night.

    I'm anxious to hear your impressions while I decide whether I need to return it.
