    Cool YSL L'Homme L'Intense or Parfum Intense

    Was at Ulta today to get a haircut for my son so I was sampling while I was waiting.
    The had a bottle of Parfum Intense for sale with a tester to try and also had the L'Intense for sale with no tester.
    Am I wrong or did L'Intense replace the Parfum Intense? They had a bottle of each so I was a bit confused. I have the L'Intense and the Parfum Intense smelled similar if not the same.
    What are the differences here? So many flankers I have trouble keeping track of this line.

    L'Homme Parfum Intense (2013) - Ambergris and Orange blossom
    La Nuit de L'Homme L'Intense (2015) - Iris and Tonka bean

    Yes, they are different. La Nuit de L'Homme L'Intense is recently discontinued to make space for the newly released La Nuit de L'Homme Eau de Parfum.

    Not La Nuit. I'm just talking L'Homme L'Intense here.

    So many L'Hommes! Better get in my L'Humvee and drive down to L'Home Depot to check it out!

    To answer your question OP, I found L'Intense more interesting.

    HAHA! That made me L'Laugh! I mean, it made me L'LOL!
    So did the L'Intense replace the Parfum Intense?

    My mistake. It’s a bit confusing as L'Homme L'Intense does not exist on Fragrantica.

    I am guessing here, but I think L'Homme L'Intense and L'Homme Parfum Intense are the same perfume. Searching for prices on L'Homme Parfum Intense also brings up prices for L'Homme L'Intense, and vice versa. The shops I’m searching at have either one or the other, but none of them have both.

    I guess Yves Saint Laurent released one perfume with two different names.

    I think not directly, as Parfum Intense (2015) is still made. L'Hommd L'Intense (2019) just follows in La Nuit de L'Homme L'Intense's footsteps

    Good Lord, man.
    I sprayed the Perfum Intense to see if I could pick apart the differences from the L'Intense.....I think the Parfum is less sweet but only slightly.....more in line with the regular L'Homme EDT.
    I enjoy L'Intense but I must admit, I find it too sweet. Especially the first hour or two, then it settles down quite a bit. But it makes me wonder if I should have sought out the Parfum Intense instead.

    As did I.

    I feel that people are talking over my head here. There is a new L'Homme L'Intense (2019) just released? I can’t find any information on this. Not here on Basenotes and not on Fragrantica.

    Could someone help a guy out and get some information on this new release? I can’t be the only one clueless about this release.

    This is the new bottle?

    Correct, Twilight99, that's the bottle. Not sure when it was released.

    Just to add to the confusion, I looked up the perfumes on FragranceX and FragranceNet. It is almost funny.

    FragranceX calls it L'homme L'intense, but has a picture of the Parfum Intense bottle.
    FragranceNet calls it Parfum Intense, but has a picture of the L'homme L'intense bottle.

    That's why I hate the different bottles that look alike and the names are too similar. All these third party sites arent' paying close enough attention, lol

    This is the correct bottle. Different from L'Homme Parfum Intense, different from La Nuit de L'Homme L'Intense

    After doing a lot of searching, I found this comment from 2015.

    FWIW-I also just got in on a split of the new YSL L'Homme L'Intense(not confusing at all!lol)and I'm really liking this one. Good longevity, but very mellow projection. Way different then anything else in the L'Homme line....awesome scent IMO.
    So seems like L'Homme L'Intense was released maybe in 2015.

    I had thought that the Parfum Intense came first and the L'Intense came out last year or the year prior to that. I dunno. So many flankers with them, it's hard to decide on which one to get and which to not get.

    So I finally got to sample L'Homme L'Intense again, and it is just as I remember it. I did sample it when it was released. The opening is pretty good, but to me the drydown is nauseating. Noting here that I am a big fan for the original L'Homme.

    Now I just need to find L'Homme Parfum Intense, because that is the one I haven’t sampled yet. The release just went totally undetected by me. Here is hoping that it is good, because I love a lot of the L'Homme and Nuit flankers.

    It just boggles my mind why YSL would release two different perfumes, in completely similar bottles, with very similar names, and in a very short time space. I actually needed some convincing before I believed they were two different perfumes.

    I agree. What was also confusing, to me, was that Ulta has a tester for the Parfum Intense and has had it a long time but does not have a tester for L'Intense, despite selling both. And their stock of the Parfum Intense and the L'Intense is all mixed up together in the same row.
