My first Bentley :)
Long time ago someone wrote something about this Bentley.

I'll do that.

I became aware of the scent here in the forum and ordered a sample in the souk. I always think rum is good, it appeals to me in scents uncanny, if it is well done.

The whole thing also starts fresh and spicy, pepper and laurel give themselves the honour. Then follows already the sweet rum with a MIschung from cinnamon perceive,

Very tasty and somehow very different than I expected, because there is no Pina Colada here, but real men rum,
Leather rounds the whole thing off, no pressed-in olle leather couch, but an elegant office chair.

Everything very intense and I ask myself the question how intense the Intense has to smell first. I'm gonna say this is totally enough, or I'm gonna get erwas too much.
Then I'd be on the cookie, but that's not the case and even before the scent could do that here, it gets a little sweeter and then changes a little without neglecting the other components.

At this time then after 2-3h I like it best, then patchouli, benzoin and wood start to round the whole perfectly
I wore it to the office today, it's air-conditioned, so you can test it well, because outside it would have been a no go at just 26 degrees today. This one needs cold and is an autumn and winter scent.

The shelf life was very good and after 8h in the office I still smelled it at home.
For the office you should not overdose.

Since it is cheap in any case a consideration worth to fall back on it in the near future.

Many thanks again to Gekko for the rehearsal and for the great handling.

Another Excellent Bentley Release Overshadowed By Its Outstanding Sister Scent...
Bentley for Men opens with a relatively sweet bergamot and laurel tandem with just a hint of underlying cinnamon. As the composition enters its early heart phase it turns slightly boozy as a fine benzoin sweetened rum joins smooth woods, with the remaining prominent laurel and subtle cinnamon tagging along. During the late dry-down the benzoin driven sweetness tones down considerably with suede leather joining remnants of the smooth woods and cinnamon-laced rum as the composition gently fades. Projection is average, as is longevity at 7-9 hours on skin.

After having such a positive experience with my blind buy of Bentley for Men Intense earlier, the expectations for the regular Bentley for Men by the same perfumer were understandably quite high. Largely Bentley for Men is up to the task and proves another excellent outing by Lorson in 2013. While the two sister compositions are quite similar in structure, there are some differences that distinguish them. Bentley for Men Intense has a much richer boozy demeanor than the lighter all-around style of Bentley for Men. By "lighter" I do not mean watered down, but rather less deep, less boozy and gourmand, less projection and longevity; and at the end of the day somehow a bit less distinctive. If I had not already tried the superior smelling Intense I would be singing this composition's praise more forcefully, calling it one of the best releases of the year (which it certainly is), but the Intense just takes the shared base accord to new heights and is the one most folks will want in their collection. The bottom line is the $90 per 100ml bottle Bentley for Men is an excellent composition, overshadowed by its even better sister scent, still earning an "excellent" 4 stars out of 5 rating. If you already own Intense, Bentley for Men probably is not needed, but the reverse does not hold.
