Reviews of L'Homme Idéal L'Intense

A brief chili note in the opening, of Ideal L'Intense, before it turns into basically a bettor version of Bentley for Men Intense. There's facets of various other fragrances in here, and I think it strays away from the rest of the flankers the most. The almond note in quite muted, unlike the others. The Basenotes notes listed doesn't even say almond, and I would have to agree with that. That doesn't make this a bad fragrance. It's actually one of the best from the line. It's niche quality, without niche unwearability (let's pretend that's a word). This is very versatile, but sadly, limited from its launch, and will be very hard to find soon.

Spice and vanilla - that’s the mainstay of this composition. Not to sweet a vanilla, albeit nothing particularly exciting.

The spices mix pimento, ground black pepper and touches it up with a pleasant cardamom impression.

I get moderate sillage, adequate projection and six hours of longevity on my skin.

An agreeable flanker for autumn days, that is prevented from reaching the heights of a thumbs-up by its generic nature. 2.5/5.

A spicy boredom, neither evolution, nor complexity, a huge dose of tonka makes all "sultrier" but I don't see the point. Dry down is a pale sweetish (spicy) synth pencil shavings woodiness on my skin. It lasts a flash. Sorry.

The best from the entire line. Ironed to the last centimeter of the finest, softest fabric/cloth.

Dense, warm, sweet and a bit dark but in a positive manner. Sensual and tad bit smoky. Labdanum, rose, vanilla, patchouly and smoke are incredibly well done. Tonka, warm, sweet and soft, not intrusively sweet as in some fragrances.

It's not that this type of fragrance is not already done. Dsquared Potion Black did a similar thing, however more into your face.

L'Homme Ideal L'Intense is not for clubbing, office or casual instances. It's more for the close encounters, winter and autumn evenings.

Conclusion: excellent work, almost niche quality.

Scent 8/10
Originality 6/10
Longevity 9/10
Projection 7/10

This should have been the original release. Full of character, each note presents very well, almost like a performance where all the notes are doing there own thing but somehow in harmony.

The tonka bean replaces the almond here, well flanked by the spicy notes. What's pleasing is that this fragrance is not shy.

I like the fact that there is an obvious connection to the EdT and EdP but now we understand what the perfumers had in mind.

A spicy, powdery scent that pulls almond, vanilla and a little bit of rose together. This is closer to the EdP than EdT. No sweet cherry-amaretto sharpness to this one. As it goes deep into the drydown, there's a smokey-leather that starts to emerge.

Projection is average but longevity is good, lasts about 8-9 hours.
