The hype, or alleged hype, about Bentley for Men Intense is over. With only five comments in the last four years and 2019 so far none at all, a little calm has returned compared to the introduction years 2013/14 with over thirty pieces! The fragrance rating continues to be very controversial from one to ten, but the majority is rather positive.
I like Bentley. Not that I have ever seen such a car in nature, let alone driven it, I have sympathy for the brand. I also like Sean Connery or Lake Baikal without having experienced them personally. In addition, man, including myself, likes to decide or position himself between two pretended sides or things. Bentley or Rolls Royce, Beatles or Stones, Amazon or Walmart, Apple or Samsung, Aldi or Lidl, Guerlain or Chanel or Dior. This is very subjective and a lot happens out of the stomach, but happens almost automatically and unconsciously.
Bentley for Men Intense has nothing to do with the car brand. Nor are the other fragrances with the name Bentley. This is pure moneymaking where the perfume track is used to market the primarily noble, masculine, dominant, elegant, dynamic, adventurous and impressive features of the brand for the "little man". Analogous to Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz, Ferrari etc. as well as similar to the celebrity fragrance collections and sometimes even successful!
The perfume itself starts like a volcanic eruption, with a tremendous eruption of scent. An explosion is quickly over, but here always new Duftlava comes after. With enormous power, it pushes outwards, even becomes more intense at times and only comes to a standstill after many, many hours, when it becomes thick and cold.
Citric notes are immediately evaporated in the heat of the eruption. It is hot-spicy and a very herbaceous aroma of older, strongly dried plants is present. The powerful spice is peppery, herbaceous, slightly sweet and very warm. Feel the slight sharpness and a pleasant, aromatic rum spreads out at the same time. It's not very sweet, but it's delicious. And again very quickly in the further development the ever more intensively developing balsamic-oriental clove smell comes vehemently to the fore. As a result of the cinnamon, it has a cinnamony touch, but the aroma is clearly carnation! The sweetness remains low, while the woody, resinous, also tart and earthy notes slowly increase in the course. The heat then turns into a cosy warmth and from this moment on the fragrance remains rather straightforward with velvety wood, fine incense and more severe mossy woody earth tones. The fragrance becomes a little sweeter overall but retains, and from beginning to end, this characteristic and now tenderening aromatic carnation aroma.
Who can wear Bentley for Men Intense now when, how and where with a clear conscience? One thing is clear, the Intense is really intense, the durability very high and also the Sillage noteworthy! In the pre-comments, it was always specified to exercise caution in public, in the office, in rooms, with warmth, in summer and with appointments. A first-class contribution, even for me, counted more than a dozen reasons not to carry on the Intense. As far as I know, none of the recommendations are based on a negative feedback of the kind: "You smell strong/strong; What a rum flag; Unpleasant smell; Is Christmas already ...". Why should I? The fragrance is for me very pleasant, distinctive, male, fragrant, striking, impressive, tempting and delicious! If you can sign this, you can wear Bentley for Men Intense anytime and anywhere and you should do the same! All the others would rather keep their hands off this perfume. Just like I do with other scents occasionally!
