Nope and Yup.
I tried Amber Intense for the first time today, and it immediately reminded me of Gucci Envy. Does anyone else get this? Is it the balmy quality that I'm finding similar? I haven't seen anyone else make the connection, so maybe I'm going nuts...

Nope and Yup.
I have made this connection before. You are certainly not crazy.
Amber Intense smells very similar to the reformulation of Envy.
But it's a bit darker.
Youre talking about Prada Amber Intense? If yes, ive never tried this one, but should soon if the connections are real.
Personally don't get the similarity.
No connection between the Prada and Envy.
Want to trade - Chanel Platinum Egoiste for Dior Eau Sauvage...
Can the OP please clarify that he was referring to Prada Amber, or something else?
Frederic Malle Musc Ravageur
DIOR Homme Intense
Chanel Platinum Egoiste
Chanel Allure Edition Blanche
Jean-Paul Gaultier Le Male
Thierry Mugler Pure Malt
No similarity to me
Is the juice worth the squeeze?
I didn't get that connection. I found the Prada to be a bit screechy and annoying, Envy is far better.
Yes I can see a tenuous connection. I prefer the Prada. It's not discontinued yet, but I'm getting in ahead of the crowd.
Will have to retest Prada Amber Intense, though I am familiar with it, didn't sense much similarity with Gucci Envy so far. But since I already like Gucci Envy, I will have to train my nose and see again if I do discover some common points.
Sorry guys, I meant Prada Amber Intense. Thanks for clarifying.
I guess it was just the top notes that I found to be familiar, because it did dry down as someone mentioned, into something much darker.
I dont see a connection
No connection for me either
CURRENT TOP 5
1. Dior Homme Intense
2. Creed Aventus
3. Tom Ford Extreme
4. Gucci Pour Homme II
5. Terre d'Hermes
A smidgen of similarity. I'm unable to make a conclusive determination on your sanity though.
No similarities at all.
I both, I like Prada Amber Intense, but Gucci Envy is a masterpiece.
Gucci Envy is one of my favorite fragrances and as soon as I took my first whiff of Prada Amber Intense, Envy came to mind, I think they smell very similar but there still is a big difference if that makes sense..
There are nothing alike , I own both. The notes are completely different BUT the combination of the bergamot and myrrh can fleetingly resemble the calming ginger incense combination of Envy but they diverge in completely different directions.
