    Default Bentley for Men Intense

    I've been doing some digging on something to complement the one fragrance I already have: Versace Dylan Blue. It works well in medium temperature, but not so well in winters and part of fall. Would this Bentley for Men Intense be a good addition?

    I think it would.

    I thought the Absolute got all the love! Looks like Intense is pretty well liked as well.

    Indeed, Bentley for Men Intense would be good. Better yet would be Bentley for Men Absolute — my absolute favorite Bentley.

    I found it to be a little too boozy for a daily driver.
    It’s tragic to think that heroic man’s great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other.

    While I can’t guarantee that you will like the scent, Bentley for Men Intense performs very well in terms of longevity.

    Would you recommend Bentley for Men Absolute instead? I was considering it because it seemed like it could get more use than Intense.

    I'd recommend neither of those, since they are quite plain, simple and boring. I'd say there are better options out there at low price point, depending on your preferences.
    Also I generally don't like leathery scents, so I might be biased here, but still quality wise it's below my threshold

    IMO, Intense is *far* superior to the middling Absolute. Absolute is loaded with synthetic woods/fake Oud. I gave away my bottle after blind buying it when it was originally only available overseas, feeling completely underwhelmed when It arrived.

    After sampling Intense, if you enjoy it then it would be worth considering.

    Yes, quite possible, this one happening to also be one of the personal favorite Bentley scents so far most likely to recommend

    I thought that Bentley intense was VERY good especially considering how cheap it is from discounters. Bang for your buck: 10/10
    i did find it to be a very intense and super masculine fragrance; it wasn’t for me.

    Both are excellent. Intense version it is Absolute with additional sweet vibe.
