I didn't buy Amber PH because of the sweetness. I don't like scents with clashing notes. I would find it a perfect barbershop fragrance - without the sweetness. When I heard about the Intense and that it's rather similar, but without the sweetness, I believed it and blind-bought it. It's quite a different scent, this is the least I can say. There's a faint barbershop feeling in it, but much heavier. I see that there's a great group of its followers, alas I'm not for this kind of heaviness. So I wouldn't rank them. Both are really quality scents, none for me.
