    Where can I get a sample of this (and also the EDT)?

    Edt = less incense
    Edp = more incense

    Finally received Intense via international mail. It is lovely stuff. As others have noted, it's easily "niche quality." Reminds me of a smooth, less edgy version of SL Ambre Sultan. One of my best buys of the season, a blind buy based on BN commentary. Big thank you to the BN gang. Your expert guidance is right on, as always.

    Good advice to all: buy it now, while it's somewhat readily available. This one bears every mark of soon-to-be collectible, valuable, and rare.

    Did I mention beautiful packaging? Both box and bottle - very, very nice nice.

    As best I can tell, nowhere. If you find a source please let me know and I'll do the same. I'd really like to try them.

    You can get samples here. It takes 2-3 weeks for delivery (as they are out of Poland), but it will eventually get there. They also sell on eBay and have the cheapest price the last time I looked.

    Have you personally used them? Just want to be sure they're legit.

    Yes, I used them. They are legit, but just realize that the shipping is slow. But it was the only place I found that provided samples of both, and I wasn't going to buy blind.

    check iparfumerie.de / iparfumerie.at ; the intense is 45 euros, and the edt starts at 33 euros from what i remember. I saw this site mentioned here in the forums at Germany section. But i don't know if they send worldwide but its worth to ask. From what i can tell from the graphics and interface of the site, it is an european seller present in more countries (based in Czech Republic); same site, similar prices in Romania: aoro.ro (in Romania however there have been complaints of fakes sent in case of very known designers such as Versace, D&G, Gucci etc). I personally ordered from them only Lalique, Lanvin, Cerruti, Dunhill, Aramis (less known/promoted brands) and everything was fine.

    Thank you so much Monsieur André Moreau, without this thread I probably wouldn' t have known about this fragrance existence !

    Thanks a lot to each and everyone of the participants to this thread, greatly appreciated !

    I took advantage of a trip to France to (blind) buy it and I am glad I did...it's very different to anything I own and I love it !

    Well, like the other high end car manufacturer fragrances, maybe we'll see them popping up on discounter shelves within a year. May give it a whirl then.

    ..............Soooooo, because it is labelled as a car manufacturer, the fragrance is not good??????
    Don't knock it if you haven't tried it.

    They are very legit and for a excellent price of $84.00 shipped for 3.4oz. I will buy the EDT from them next.

    Thanks for the tip döfä91. Ordered it from eBay, but at an even better price: 45 euros... Hope it lives up to the 'hype', don't usually blindbuy...

    Boy I hope so. If Bentley Intense showed up at a discounter, I'd probably snatch it up. This is very good stuff. I've sampled Bentley For Men also, and that's quite nice, but the incense in the Intense version gives it more of an edge. After a few hours, the two scents do end up smelling pretty similar... but the incense in Bentley Intense really does something for me.
    I have a 100ml Gucci Pour Homme 2003 that I'll swap for Reflection Man or De Bachmakov. PM me if interested.

    Agree completely. The dry downs are very similar, but getting there is much more fun with the Intense version. I really have no desire to buy the EDT.

    And while you and I agree on this, I can definitely see how Bentley For Men could appeal more to some. By the way, it's not an EDT and an EDP. I believe they're both EDT. The difference is less in the concentration and more in the ingredients of the composition. Bentley For Men might be a bit more versatile, and I can definitely see why some would prefer it, but man oh man, Bentley Intense impressed me from the very first sniff.

    EDT is a decent scent. Intense is a very good scent. Neither are "great" in my book. Would I pay $125 for Intense again? Probably not. In all honesty, it's about a $75 scent to me. Just my opinion.

    You may have to change your beliefs.......The Intense is an EDP.

    Even longer than you think. Went to the post office this morning to pick up my package. Came home and unwrapped 1 sample of Bentley For Men edt and 1 sample of....... Mercedez Benz Intense :-\. WTF?!?! I hoped that the sample vial was simply mislabeled so I applied some to my hand. Definitely NOT mislabeled. It smells of a horrifically cheap and synthetic aquatic. I sent them a message asking them to send the correct sample as soon as possible and I am going to assume that they will do just that. I'll let you guys know.

    Well just checking in on this thread again as I have only had this fragrance for a week or so. I wore it yesterday with my normal spritzes and I had numerous questions asking what I was wearing. From morning worship, afternoon lunch and then shopping in our local mall the compliments kept on coming, I feel like I actually hit the jackpot with this one and is quickly growing as my most reached for scent. I really do love this one and after a couple of wears seems to get better with time. A excellent blind buy for a great price in my humble opinion.
