    Bentley and specifically the Intense For Men as it's the best composed and balanced of the list IMO. (516)

    Enjoy it and come back with your feelings about it after you've worn it.

    Thank you. I copped a great deal from a Polish Ebay site Harvest of Fragrance and the shipment was a little over two weeks but I saved about $30.00 with free shipping for the big bottle. I am on a Incense kick at the moment. When the Huddler thread reappears I will add to it.

    Interestingly enough, I saw 2 Cadillac fragrances at Marshalls this week. They were cheap, and I was like hmm...I wonder if they're any good. But I'm not big on blind buys, so blind buy I did NOT. But I was curious.

    I've only ever tried Jaguar for men and Ferrari Black and Red. Out of these the Jaguar wins easily.

    Haven't got the chance to try any scents from Bentley or Cadillac line but one scent from the list above that I quite like is Mercedes Benz Intense. None of the Ferrari,Porsche or Jaguar got my attention. But I would like to try the classic Jaguar for Men launched in 1988.

    I don't like car-branded fragrances: they make me feel I am buying the brand for lack of money in order to buy the car - yes, that is stupid, I know. However, I tried the original Jaguar and I considered it buying it, but I need to limit my wardrobe.

    Besides I won't be getting a good discount if I get the colognes should I want to buy any of them

    No doubt about this one: Volvo. My best car purchase. And very likely my next car will be a Volvo too. If you wish to compare it to a fragrance, it's strong yet classy and sophisticated. And it lasts even more than you'd wish to.

    ROTFL. I never pay attention to this kind of marketing, so I even didn't know they existed. In fact, I thought everybody was joking.

    Porsche Design Titan is good fresh perfume for summer.

    I also ordered Bentley Intense online and I am very excited since everybody is talking about it.

    Great! I wish I had gone with my first instinct and bought from the eBay seller that I got the samples from. What's a couple of weeks?!?!

    Bentley for Men Intense is the only "automotive" related fragrance I think is great (save for Fahrenheit, if you consider the "petrol note" being sort of related to the automotive world).

    Thanks to you and many Basenoters who loved the fragrance it was a no brainer. Very high marks for this lesser known house.

    Your attitude is not stupid... quite the opposite... you have thoughtfully considered this "luxury auto" marketing strategy and have found it uncomfortable for you.
    A fragrance should boost your confidence, not make you feel like a tosser because the product marketing does not suit you.
    There are plenty of great fragrances you can choose which do not pretend to be good, or aspirational, by virtue of some abstract link to a brand of luxury car.
    Personally, I would still wear a fragrance that I love despite the faux luxury auto link... but I also find such obvious marketing unappealing.
