    To me Prada Amber pour Homme is nice but a bit soapy and predictable. Amber pour Homme Intense has a stronger (and sweeter) oriental feel with a bit more interest and development. Finishes nicely. Can't speak to sillage and longevity because i have only sampled them in bed.

    The original for me is much better, more elegant refined and soapy. The intense to me has too much patchouli and is a synthetic mess.. Longevity was never an issue with the original..i get 10 hours Everytime. Go to your nearest Macy's or nordstroms and test them out yourself...

    I slightly prefer the Intense version, but honestly don't much care for either one. The original is an uber-soapy, detergent like scent, while the Intense has a bit more body and a slightly dirty undercurrent that helps balance it out. Longevity and projection both seem well-above average for these.

    I love them both. The original is a barbershoppy, soapy scent with a hint of candy chewing gum cigarettes. Intense is remarkable in that it echoes the signature of the original but picks up a bit of what I like about the Prada Amber Pour Femme EDP with its heavy patchouli/labdanum base.

    I didn't quite love Intense at first sniff, because I was unsure of its longevity-- but it's gone into heavy rotation and it's versatile enough for any season. On me, I actually find Intense to wear like a mini-Musc Ravageur. It's a bit cleaner and a touch fruitier, but has a lot of bergamot/oriental/vanilla absolute/musc and feels like a cousin to MR. I can see where some would be underwhelmed with Intense, especially those who haven't spent enough time testing it, but it's one of my favorite releases from the past two years.

    I gave the intense another try it's really growing on me, I'n your opinion you think they are different enough to own both? I lobe the original

    I dismissed the intense version based on reviews i've read that it's not up to par with the original (which i own) so i passed it all the time in the mall. I went to the mall today after work and my Rose31 was dying down by that point so i figured why not stop by the saks counter and try something on, so i went for intense and i was pleasantly suprised. I'm not sure who mentioned it in the past but this defintely has a vibe of a grown up version of la nuit, very classy/elegant vibe. Not sure if its FB worthy, but i will continue to sample it and test it out. Longevity is no issue but does seem to sit a bit closer to the skin after the 2hour mark.

    I really did not care for Prada Amber on a scent strip. The intense smelled significantly more my style, though I admit I did not like either enough to try wearing.

    This was pretty much my impression having sampled both side by side on either arm. I ended up purchasing the original and will be receiving it in the mail tomorrow, but given how I favored the original and the intense is much more expensive to acquire on top of that, it was a fairly easy decision
