    Default How Come Animale Intense Is........

    ........... about five times less intense than the original Animale For Men?

    And it is totally missing anything resembling the loud, sharp green note of the original?

    I bought the 100ml bottle for A$24 (US$17) with free delivery from the UK, and from the name was expecting something more potent than the super-green powerhouse that was Animale - a scent that unambiguously said "Male Present".

    Instead I got an inoffensive office scent that says "Please don't notice me".

    Often certain labeling by the house is a misnomer. Apparently this seems to be the case with your purchase.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Thanks. I'd rate this the most extreme of misnomers.

    I think I have to use 12 or more sprays to get some effect out of it.

    Very very cruel in my opinion - and after they put out such potent classics as Animale and Animale Animale.

    Never tried it, but Animale Sport which was released at the same time, is absolutely horrible.

    Thanks. I don't know Animale Sport.

    But Animale is sort of a souped up version of CK Eternity.
