Dolce & Gabbana Intenso Pour Homme Eau De Parfum

Intenso is pure instinct, the power of an emotion that is freely expressed. It is the force of a determined man, with a heart that is rooted in tradition, yet revels in the modern world. Intenso ideally represents the new generation of Dolce & Gabbana men, who live in the present and express their emotions with abandon and intensity.

"Sincerity is the key of the Dolce & Gabbana man's elegance. He is strong, yet he is also able to reveal his frailties. He is handsome, modern and full of life, just like Intenso, the fragrance that we dedicate to him."
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana

Name: Dolce & Gabbana Intenso Pour Homme Eau de Parfum
Price: RM 264 for 75 ml
Made in: UK

The Fragrance
Intenso is a perfume for the manly man, or in Korean, 상 남자. It exudes raw masculinity that just envelops the senses. Be careful when you are around someone wearing this scent, one whiff is all it takes for you to swoon into his arms like what the ladies do on TV, haha!

The embodiment of the Intenso man: Colin Farrell

Jokes aside, I noticed something inherently new when I sniffed Intenso and I can't for the life of me, identify it. No surprises there because of the Moepel accord. Used for the very first time in perfumery, it is a sensual, almost animalic note with floral, balsamic and rich honey accents which drive a uniquely modern interpretation of the classic tobacco effect.

◆ Top notes: Basil, Aquatic notes, Marigold, Geranium
◆ Heart notes: Lavender, Absolutes of Bran and Hay, Clary Sage, Cypress
◆ Base notes: Sandalwood, Musky notes, Ambery notes, Moepel accord, Labdanum

The Flacon
Intenso marks and celebrates its ties with Pour Homme by mirroring its iconic lines, where the difference lies in the colour of the flacon.

The dark tobacco brown colour palette is also reflected in the box, what with the luxurious dark brown velvet coating and metallic copper embossment of the Dolce & Gabbana logo.

Accidentally wiped away some of the letterings with a moist towelette *sob*
