    Right, but all MPG bottles look the same, so it is hard to tell which scent you are talking about.

    Great. So it's 90% similar to a mystery MPG scent...thanks, good to know!

    I haven't smelled Bentley intense, but the notes don't seem to match up to any mpg I've tried. I'm interested in hearing which one you find similar.

    Off-topic I know, but do you have any favorites from the house? I own Ambre Precieux and have always been curious about their other stuff.

    I agree my nose is not sharp as I am a heavy smoker but I do get high similarities between them.

    Bentley Azure is my most eagerly awaited 2014 release. Tempering the formula with the added freshness of the tea mid note sounds most interesting.

    So now there are two sporty or aquatic type fragrances I can't wait to try... Encre Noir Sport, and Bentley Azure. I love the original Encre Noir and Bentley Intense, so I'm having high hopes these two new releases will be also good.

    Have a feeling I'll be getting my hands on the Lalique before the Bentley but anticipating the arrival of both with guarded excitement.

    Bentley for Men Intense was my favorite new release for 2013. I will give Azure a sample for that reason alone.

    Don't find them very much alike. However, I do see some similarities between Bentley and Ambre Sultan, and a slight similarity between Ambre Sultan and Ambre Precieux. So maybe by way of extension.....you're not completely crazy.


    By the way, MPG really needs to change the look of their bottles.

    They have already done it once, if you consider their going from the serrated 90ml bottles to the smooth 100ml bottles but not for the better IMO.

    All great selections. I love MPG's. In response to Bentley Intense smelling similar to a MPG I haven't found one that is similar but I haven't tried all of them just yet so one may be lurking that has a similar vibe.

    It seems Bentley is getting ready to launch this next month.

    The promo for it is now added on their website : http://www.bentley-fragrances.com/fr...-for-men-azure

    I am so waiting for this one; never thought i would be so keen on waiting for a car-brand fragrance. Hopefully at the same price or lower (bought Bentley Intense for 38 euros in December from a german site - through a friend from there, so no idea if they ship worldwide - iparfumerie.de if it helps anyone).

    The pricing seems reasonable also for a scent in that genre. Looking forward to it.

    Bump on this also, I am all things Bentley lately! Love the Intense.

    Anyone try this too? There is one review here, one "website" review where it was flamed, and very little on Fragrantica. Would enjoy hearing from some BN'ers who have tried it.

    I have a sample of it. To me it smells somewhat like Chanel Platinum Egoiste but not as good.

    Have seen this pop up on Ebay but hasn't been a priority for me. The prices seemed overly inflated for this flanker. Hopefully they will drop to more reasonable levels.
