    Default Prada Amber Intense

    I LOVE Prada Amber. I love sweet scents. I love the smell of incense (want to try it in cologne). Really want to try an EDP of a cologne too for the longevity. I should like this one right? Opinions?

    *I'm a 24 College Senior who wants something a little "older".

    Try first, IMO it's quite different from the original.

    If you like the smell of incense then perhaps Full Incense by Montale might work for you.

    Been a while since I smelled it. All I remember is that it was quite different from the original, and I didn't care for it. I do like the original.

    Got a bottle yesterday and I am currently wearing it. On the top it has surprise citrus and a little of the original in the background. As it gets into the heart and the base a vanilla and incense comes up and it transforms into a dark berry feel with a hint of sweet amber. At first I was like oh its the original with a little vanilla then boom the sweet amber and vanilla with a hint of powder and fruit kicks in. I like it myself, but definitely have it sampled with a full spray on ya to see if u like the powder vibe you kind of get. Longevity is going on about 6 hrs. but I can tell its getting closer to the skin.

    If you like sweet scents, then you will like Amber Intense. IMO would not classify this as "older," unless relative to Fierce...

    So there is no touch point betweene this two... If u wish for incense based scent go for Kyoto, Zagorsk, Avignone.... Gucci PH... Arso, there are great incense based frag.
    Prada PH Intense is not that sweet ( on me ) ... If u like ( wish ) something sweet there are mouch better choices

    Is this one strong enough for the club?

    I wanted to like it, but find it quite synthetic the more I wear it. It is indeed strong enough for a "club" setting, and at first has a clean, soapy vibe, but the soap gets fakey over time. I have this problem with other Prada scents as well.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    No, the EDT has better projection and longevity.

    It seemed relatively strong when I tried it on skin at Sephora a few months back... The real question is it good?... Now that is another story entirely. I have certainly tried much worse, but can't really recommend it.
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage/V.I.P. for Men (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)

    Agree - not very pleasant at least to me.

    It has amazing longevity and is pretty strong. I very much like it. It is different than Prada Amber pour Homme.

    I can't really say if this is a "club" scent. I think it seems much more like romantic dinner type of scent.

    Also, let me agree with the posts above, I don't get that much incense from this scent. There is myrrh in it, but it is more of a "soapy" myrrh rather than incense myrrh, and the myrrh is more of a top / mid notes phenomenon rather than a base.

    Also, the drydown is heavy on the patchouli on me. It is a patchouli mixed with vanilla and cocoa (and yet not that sweet), so if you like patchouli / vanilla / cocoa you should defintely give it a try. But as you see from the above the scent polarizes, so try before you buy.

    It's OK, I'm not crazy about it.
