    Well...not necessarily...

    While BFM Intense is clearly labeled as an EdP, at 15% perfume concentration it stands on the "lighter" side of the Eaux de Parfum IMO.

    I already noticed after a few wears that I may be more liberal when I apply it than I would with LIDGE or DHI (and I believe that goes beyond sprayers differences)...which is fine by me. I hope it will allow me for more versatility and more wearability in the warmer weather (perhaps).

    As always, YMMV and I am just beginning to know this wonderful fragrance...

    I wouldn't recommend over-applying Bentley intense at all .

    Funny you mention LIDGE, because Bentley intense is very similar in performance to it : It might come off as weak during the first 3-4 hours, but once the incense/woods drydown hits the stage, that thing will project and send whiffs your way with every single move you make, exactly like LIDGE does.

    I learned that the hard way when i over applied it during one wearing. The drydown gave me a headache .

    Trust me, less is more with Bentley intense

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.
    How many sprays did you use? Just curious.

    My norm is three to the chest but this one I tone it down a bit to two especially when around family gatherings, work or Church. It seems to project more than I realized at first. It is sweet. I wonder how this stacks up to the EDT version?

    Thanks. The EDT is weaker and more subtle. I owned it for about a week when I decided I did not need both. Lasting power is good with the EDT, but it was very quiet on me. I'm a three spray man myself.

    That is very good to know. The Intense version will last me quite along time so it makse perfect sense to not basically duplicate it for a thinner version. Are you experiencing the projection to be so bold as I do? After a four hour spell it still has a dynamic effect to others around me. I think I over did it with three sprays the first time as it was very potent on my skin.

    Ah, I didn't realize that. Good to know! Still, there's far more that's different about these two scents than just the concentration. The incense in Bentley Intense really changes the composition - for the better, in my opinion. Bentley for men is very nice, but Bentley Intense is outstanding. The incense makes a world of difference.

    I noticed this as well, sort of. I noticed that Bentley For Men and Bentley Intense both seemed pretty close in terms of how long they wear on my skin, and I noticed that they both end up smelling similar after a few hours, but the openings are remarkably different, with the incense in Bentley Intense giving it a darker and perhaps edgier feel. It's quite compelling.

    Not at all. Three is just right IMHO.

    I wish the finely crafted bottle was refillable. Shame that it's just another crimp-on, given all the workmanship that went into it.

    Definitely not something scarce right now. And I'm also hopeful it'll make it there and be discounted through other venues as the euphoria wears off. The market is so saturated with interesting fragrances.

    I wore 3 sprays of Intense today and I am really enjoying it. Very uplifting on a dreary, rainy day.

    Don't know of any physical store in the US that has this on hand to test. Many people are getting it from this vendor - the intense and non intense:

    Also, as an alternative Harvest of Fragrance is another reputable site from Poland on EBAY. My Intense 3.4oz was $84.00 with free shipping. When I look back it took only 10 days to ship so that wasn't to bad. I feel you will really like this scent it's a good one.

    Yup, I got it through Amazon, sold by Notre Dame De Paris Perfumes, free shipping - arrived within 3 business days. Excellent packaging and everything worked out great. So this is probably the best place you can get Bentley Intense from here in the US, and fast, too. They carry the regular Bentley as well, if you are interested in that other option.

    It's the same company. After I bought my samples from "Harvest of Fragrance" online, I recognized the other name they go by on eBay (mtinternational). Their store front on their eBay page is "Harvest of Fragrance".

    Have you noticed someone is now selling it for $61.00 on eBay? Someone out of Paris, France and their feedback's not bad. They have been selling on eBay since 2005. Now THAT'S a crazy price!

    No I haven't but I'm over the moon for the price I paid and how good this smells and the longevity is just icing on the cake. One of the best of 2013. I bet those Lubbock ladies are enjoying the aroma.

    When my e-mail came in it was mtinternational. What did you think of the package wrapped in so much tape? It took me forever to get the thing open

    LOL....that made me laugh out loud about the Lubbock ladies. I agree with it being one of the best of 2013. Some say it reminds them of Tauer's LDDM. It did me when I first sampled it. How about you?

    I only bought my samples from "Harvest of Fragrance" and yes, even THOSE had excessive tape! I think they also deliver ONLY with "Signature required" for some reason, which is kind of odd. I wound up buying my full bottle from the company off Amazon, but if I had it to do over again, I'd probably go with Harvest of Fragrance (mtinternational) out of Poland. There was nothing at all to complain about that I could see.

    I really want to get the Tauer offering but sadly I still haven't done it just yet. It seems like it's in my top five and then I get on here and buy something like Bentley Intense due to the cult like following and rework my top five it seems like it's always in flux. Oh well.

    Me too, JJMAN, there was no place where I could sample it as I was traveling in France last month, so I bought it blind...but thanks to André's recommendation and each and everyone of the participants to this thread I decided it was worth taking my chances for something not easy at all to locate... Very glad I did !!!
