    Orcanox molecule? Essence of oxygenated whale? This aquatic/marine-sounding molecule looks interesting. I hope it brings to marine frags what the wonderful Bently Intense brought to its genre.

    In recent year, any reference to blue or its shades has spelled disaster, but who knows. Interesting that a marine appears to be based on ambroxan rather than calone. Progress, perhaps. But then I bet there's calone anyway.

    That does seem quite lazy to already talk about it in past-tense. I guess they don't ever want to update the page.

    But as far as the scent itself goes, I am optimistic and personally can't wait to sample this one as I have fallen in love with the scent of violet leaf. Anyone have any inside info on when they plan to release this? Q1?

    Bentley for Men Intense is an amazing composition but while I'll sniff this one I am not too keen as I don't think Lorson is the nose behind it.

    Mine isn't close at all to GPH. With GPH, the first thing that strikes me is smoky woods, but I don't get that at all with Bentley Intense. And the dry down's are completely different.

    Hmm....if a majority of people on a message board collectively like a new fragrance it's "overrated" and a "holy grail?"

    In any event, I'll look forward to smelling Azure.

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

    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.

    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.

    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).
