    I'm kinda liking Vetiver Extreme more and more these days (perhaps > the original) eventhough there is nothing extreme or intense about it relative to the original.

    I prefer Dior Homme Intense over Dior Homme but thats to take nothing away from the original which is a beautiful scent on its own merit!

    either l'instant (ext) or dior homme (int) will be the winner but my vote goes to bvlgari ph (extreme)
    Seasonal favorites :

    Winter : The Dreamer & Burberry London & La Nuit de L'Homme
    Spring-Autumn : Aqua Fahrenheit & Bvlgari Pour Homme
    Summer : Bvlgari Extreme & Bvlgari Aqva & Bvlgari Aqva Marine
    All-Rounders : Terre D'Hermes & Bleu de Chanel

    Indispensible : The Dreamer & Bvlgari Extreme & Bvlgari Pour Homme & Bvlgari Aqva

    Ava Luxe's Rasa Extreme was much better than its original variant, if too intense in its initial blast. Gone now, sadly.

    Another discontinued example, but Ricci Club Haute Conentration was a massive improvement over the original for me. A good, lasting citrus scent ( if I loved citrus I'd own some, but it's not my thing ).

    I like L'Artisans La Chasse aux Papillons Extreme ( Yeah! Hunt those cute little insects with BAZOOKAS! ) more than the original ( it's not more intense so much as orientalized ), but neither have a lot of love from me.

    Of course with many fragrances, there is often an EDT, EDP, and parfum produced. But that's a little different from an intense flanker.

    Apparition Homme Intense by Ungaro was a blind buy for me and I love it. I've never tried the original but the Intense seems to be more well received here, based on reviews.

    I haven't enough experience to be dogmatic about it, but I also really like Givenchy's PI.
