Reviews of Mercedes-Benz Intense

The violet stars in the sweet, soapy opening but the drydown reveals synthetic modern notes that smell bad on skin but are very nice if you just catch them in the air.

It does resemble Fahrenheit in the beginning but also mixed with very loud sweet notes, making for a unique retro/modern twist.

Performance is very good as it lasts all day and projects for about 6 hours.

I've started to look into car, tobacco, celeb scents etc
Mercedes Benz intense was one that I bought blind on a flight. It's up there with my top 10 frags.
The opening is a lovely citrus peppery burst,(it's one of my favorite combinations), with a prominent cedar accord.Its somewhat reminiscent of Dunhill Desire Black which is also a great frag.

The base of MBI is a spicy green cedar, which is a scent that I tend to avoid, ( I think a childhood memory of an unpleasant uncle who wore brut or some such green cedary frag with a beastly sillage and projection). However in saying that, I actually don't mind it in this frag, I think the spice (nutmeg-also not a favorite accord) in the base tended to ameliorate the sharpness of the cedar. This combination works well, not something in my realm really but it's opened up another olfactory space for me to explore.
Suitable for formal and semi formal occasions, it has a formality in it that augments formal attire.

It gets a 7/10 overall

What a pleasant surprise!

Rich, deep, masculine amber based violet fragrance. I must admit I had some doubts, but after sniff in shop I decided to buy it on a spot. A good move, no regrets.

It reminds me of Fahrenheit, but this one is a bit more sophisticated IMHO that Fahreinheit, violet note stays still in the background. A bit heavier, but still fresh masculine fragrance, worthy of attention. Classy fragrance with very good projection and sillage lasting several hours. When sprayed on clothed it lasts even longer.

Deep and rich and fresh all at the same time!

This is actually quite stunning! I bought this blind as I got a pretty good deal on it. I'm not sure what I was expecting, but I really didn't think it would be so uplifting.

The opening is a bit typical of many masculine marketed fragrances with the usual citrus making a strong statement; but the violet is what makes this a bit different. In the heart I don't really sense any pepper, but the cascalone is prominent (without turning this into an 'aquatic').

The base is a sort of mash up of amber and wood, with maybe a touch of grassy vetiver at the end. I couldn't get a sense of any specific patchouli or cedar per say, but I did enjoy the drydown stage a lot. It somewhat reminds me of both Armani's ADG Essenza and Dior's Fahrenheit in that it is deep and rich and fresh all at the same time. It leaves me with an impression of something greater than just another run of the mill masculine EDT. Longevity was as good as I expected for an 'intense' EDT lasting about 8 hours maximum. The sillage trail was not massive but still noticeable.

The bottle has a heavy glass base and I love how the frosted dark grey looks together with the quite solid metal plated lid. 4 stars out of 5.

Pros: Long lasting and distinctive
