Wow! Very positively surprised!
Wow, that was a good trade!

I owned the JPG Le Beau and wanted to get rid of it so badly... was not mine at all and has not really smelled good on me (my sensation). Then I was proposed a swap deal with the Intenso and I must say: I'm really positively surprised.

He comes along with a great fragrance blend. Very powdery and sweet but still with a slight freshness, as I find. The first few minutes are just gorgeous, really a very great fragrance.
The sillage is a bit "limited" though... it doesn't really want to break out. The same can unfortunately be related to the shelf life. He keeps a good 4-5 hours, after that, however, it strongly decreases.

The bottle, on the other hand, I like very much, lies well in the hand - although one initially expects a different fragrance due to the optics of the flacon.

All in all, I am really very positively surprised and am happy about my transacted exchange. I will have a lot of fun with the fragrance, as it is really versatile.

(M)a dream, unfortunately without durability!
Intenso is a really great fragrance, I would even say it is one of my favourites! Especially the start of this fragrance is excellent. A fresh, slightly maritime start, paired with an incredibly exciting and delightful hay scent. This note of hay is what I like, because the composition with the fresh notes makes this fragrance simply incredibly pleasant and masculine. However, this "fresh hay kick" fades away quite quickly and Intenso becomes sweeter and sweeter. The shelf life of starl leaves a lot to be desired, so that after 4 hours at the latest, it is over, with only sweet smelling for the last 2 hours. I like the flacon, noble and masculine, and the colouring fits Dolce & Gabbana perfectly.

The almost perfect fragrance
In my search for the perfect fragrance, I would like to dedicate my first comment to a fragrance that has a personal meaning for me and is somewhat undervalued from my point of view
It's about the successor to the - in my opinion - best designer fragrance, the Dolce&Gabbane pour Homme, whose original has existed for 25 years and has already been reformulated to death. The Intenso version should be a more intensive and modern interpretation of the classic from the 90s.

I don't want to go into the details of the individual fragrances at all, as this has already been described in detail here. For me, the lavender note is clearly in the foreground, overlapping the fragrance from beginning to end. What makes the fragrance so unique from my point of view is the combination of aquatic and at the same time tart notes, the mixture of fresh/sweet, woody/spicy and powdery/smoky as I have not perceived it in any other fragrance. By the way, the scent, as long as it is perceived, is a true catcher of compliments, since I have already been asked about it several times. The original also comes to light, whereby the original has a unique selling point for me in that I don't have any other fragrance that smells similar to the original
However, the Intenso has two weaknesses:

Although the scents are very well coordinated from my point of view, the lavender comes across very artificially. The remaining hay notes can be guessed at, they don't seem very natural either.

The biggest problem, however, is the durability and the Sillage, I can not quite understand the different ratings in this regard: The fragrance radiates - like most new publications of today - max. 1 hour well, is therefore well perceptible at the beginning, but then withdraws quickly and becomes very close after about 3 hours, before it disappears after about 5 hours completely. On the clothes, it lasts somewhat longer, becomes however also "clothes-near fast." Even the multiple reformulated today's version of the original has a better durability.

From my point of view the term "Intenso" is a bad joke: In a comment it says that the fragrance has the durability of an EDT from the 90's, which I also cannot share. I have the honour to get a copy of the original from the original version. The original from the 90's is even perceptible the next day, has a shelf life of 12 hours+, which was common 20 years ago with an EDT (!); with today's new releases you have to be happy if they last a working day. To market the smell still as EDP, borders already on customer fraud.

From my point of view - as already described - the name AQUA would have fitted very well to this scent, which would also describe the scent direction most likely. Otherwise, the fragrance is very versatile.

Conclusion: The Intenso is a beautiful version of the classic and is ideal for office/school use as it gives an aquatic/fresh/sweet/sweet/spicy/ben/woody/powdery impression that is not too intrusive. It arrives also well, as long as it is perceptible ;-)

Underrated spicy gem
I was hesitant with Intenso because it's been very overlooked by the frag comm and the few reviews I found in youtube weren't very favorable but stubborn as I am I decided to buy online despite having D&G pour Homme already in my collection. Glad I did! Is it similar to D&G pour Homme? Of course, it's a flanker, that's what flankers are! however, it's a more interesting version which I've heard is closer to the original Pour Homme than current Pour Homme reformulation.

I love how Intenso increases the tobacco of the original which blends perfectly with the lavander, basil and aquatic notes adding a little darkness and depth to the formula while keeping some soapy clean nuances, it's both clean and dirty at the same time. Worth the while, perhaps you should check it out and not make it a blind buy as I did but you should give it a try.

75ml bottle should do, not sure one needs more than that

Sticky sweet with intense spice
The bottle does not contain what it suggests, far too sweet for the spicy smoky notes it contains. Then some Niveacreme and the clear statement is gone, looks as if it wanted but can not. However, the performance is not bad

Pleasant fragrance
I found this fragrance appealing because it smells similar to Mugler's Alien Man in the beginning, at least my nose thinks so.
The hay comes out a little later and fits very well, I think.
So after half an hour the lavender becomes a bit harsher and the lavender is clearly perceptible.
A certain freshness is added after about two hours, which perhaps comes from the cypress.
I don't take wood at all.
Still a great perfume I must say.
The shelf life is about 8 hours on my skin, which is absolutely OK.
The bottle (50ml) lies well in the hand and the box with the velvet cover feels really noble.
Absolutely recommendable!
For the Intenso by D&G I got 8 out of 10 points.

Hay/Tobacco/Lavender
The hay note is strong in this one, I love the combination of lavender, tobacco and hay!

It easily reminds me of Dior's Sauvage, in that they are both very nice though not great. A great wonderful soap and clean smell.

So awesome for casual events but also a possible option for fancy events.

Niche and high-end collectors might overlook this but if you want something simple with a good life and projection then this will do for everyday activities.

Very few scents out there with hay as the main note, this does a great job of putting it in the spotlight and mixing it up with the tobacco and lavender.

Smooth lavender perfume, a little sweet, a little spicy, a little smoky, a little woody, a little aromatic and with a little performance.

This mysterious black bottle hides a very pleasant aromatic scent , deep but not heavy. Maybe the sillage could be stronger , but I like it
