    You might really enjoy Amouage scents like Interlude, Epic, Memoir and others. You might also really enjoy M7 or Gucci Pour Homme (2003 version). It depends on what you like about Bentley Intense, of course.

    Tauer L'air du Desert Marocain, Neela Vermeire Trayee, Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan and Amouage Interlude Man would probably be right up your alley.

    I agree with Amouage and the Trayee suggestion.

    I think Lubin Idole is a better version of Bentley Intense for Men - may be redundant if you already own the Bentley, but if not, give Idole (I prefer the EDP) a try first.

    by Kilian Incense Oud may be something you would like, as well as Armani Prive Royal Oud.

    For something far less expensive, perhaps Dirty English would be something you would like.

    Idole lubin smells same and some of the incense based scents are similar too. Personally I am over the incense based scents

    Idole de Lubin is certainly one as Dougczar already mentioned, though I think they are different enough to own both (and I do). Liquid Night by A Lab On Fire might also be worth a look...

    Maybe a bit more of a stretch, but Oud for Love by The Different Company may also be worth a sniff.

    It's funny the first two comments mentioned Interlude. I just happened to have a sample of Interlude on one hand and BI on the other.
    They are similar but would add that BI is a little more fun and Interlude is more of an upscale scent and SLIGHTLY higher quality.
    Of course, it should be based on the price tags. Both are worth sampling imo.

    It's not as smoky (nor as sweet) but Courvoisier L'Edition Imperiale EdP is quite similar to my nose.

    Thanks. I'll see if I can check some out. Came across another thread or review that suggested Encre Noire Cologne by Lalique was similar as well.

    I very much agree with Gucci Homme 1, and Liquid Night. In the former, the wood/incense mix feels similar, yet Bentley Intense feels sweeter. Liquid Night has a similar sweet/incense quality; great stuff.
