New York, New York, so good she made it twice
An urbane oriental, it starts with aromatics and runs down to a lightly spiced body.
New York Intense is a fine work, the sort of thing you would expect from a member of the perfume patriciate; but while I appreciate the quality and skill that went into its slowly moving transitions, the fact is it doesn't work for me.

Love It or Leave It
Pepdal nailed it with the title of his review; it shares other qualities with a big a city as well. It's big, it's loud, and many will say it's also smelly. What are you gonna do about it? Well, now it's time to make a decision.

If you're just visiting New York Intense from a decant/sample, then you might very well decide to go home, wash it off, and spray something fresh. Thank you for visiting.

However, be prepared for some divisive opinions should you decide to stay, love it, buy a bottle, and decide to wear it on a regular basis. Now what do you do?

Are you going to allow the mean people with their mean words tell you what to wear and send you scrubbing? Or do you have enough confidence to keep wearing it regardless of what they say?

Longevity is until scrubbed and sillage is at arms length with the density varying on your sprays. Two should be enough to be able to smell it on yourself and enjoy it throughout the day.

I love it.

The scent that never sleeps
When you are first deciding what to sample from the house of Nicolai, it is almost inevitable that New York Intense enters calculations. Is it really as good as everyone says? Here are my thoughts and as always, thank you for watching.

New York Intense
Notes: Bergamot, Lemon, Cloves, Thyme, Cinnamon, Black Pepper, Pimento, Lavender, Vanilla, Oakmoss, Vetiver, Musk, Civet and Castoreum

Now this is a classy fragrance. Starts of fresh and green with Bergamot, Lemon and Thyme followed by spices Black Pepper, Cinnamon and Cloves. Drydown is sublime, Vanilla, Oakmoss, Vetiver, Musk and hints of Civet. This is based on NYC, the city that never sleeps, you can say this fragrance never sleeps as well. Sophisticated, classic, and retro and glad to own this one. Definitely gives me that nostalgic vibe, taking me back to when I was in NYC.

New York sketches
The color of the perfume and the shape of the bottle are a perfect match: a bright, luminous fragrance. Uncompromisingly hard, smooth, angular (and that despite the lavender powdery texture).

100% classic and 100% modern and surprising. I like such opposites
A fragrance from which you can pick out every single one of the specified notes (with the exception of oakmoss and vanilla perhaps) exactly, at least if you know it. Smells of lemon like a lemon, of lavender like a fragrant sachet, of chamomile like a tea bag, and and and and.

The division into head, heart and base notes is arbitrary. However they manage to do this, the animal gland trilogy (musk-cibetgeil) from the base jumps at me in the first minutes, oh no, seconds (and even primarily there) and I take the lavender from the heart note most clearly in the wonderful (perhaps the most beautiful thing about the fragrance) Drydown, which after 8 hours is still skinny, but extremely clear, like a second skin of animal lavender latex, holds out
I think he's sexy. The little nose by my side, however, örgs. Pity.

Out with the old, in with the new(ish?)
Parfums de Nicolai NY Intense is everything that most niche masculine perfumes should be: interesting but familiar, classical but modern, zingy and tart but with added depth. At first smell I am hit by a combination of citruses not unlike Chanel Pour Monsieur or Monsieur de Givenchy. The expectation is that they give way to the heavy base notes but on my skin they remain throughout the life of the fragrance. The other big players are the oakmoss, the lavender and the vanilla with just a dash of spice (a bit of clove and cinnamon). In the drydown there is an oriental feeling without being able to call the fragrance oriental: the base is simply supporting the fragrance, never taking away from top and heart notes, only supporting. Incredible fragrance to be launched in 2014, sits on the same shelf as Habit Rouge, Chanel pour Monsieur and Eau Sauvage.

Just Wow!!!
This fragrance is out of this world. Pay this rant no mind but this frag gets busy. On the opening it is strong as an ox. On the opening this fragrance smells simple and dated. I could compare it to Polo green or any generic scent like old spice or brut. That's when the magic happens. The lemon and bergamot bloom after the the alcohol smells dries down and it's amazing. Normally I would not break character and have to write about a fragrance from my collection but it's oh-so-worthy. This composition mixes the old with the new in my opinion without using anything synthetic. Pour monsieur and Edition Blanche by Chanel can all take seats. The king is here. To explain how this fragrance works I will say that it smells like a lemon tart from from a fancy restaurant. This balanced and I could smell most notes of this for at least two hours. It went from citrusy to masculine and brut. This frag much like Aventus make cross over into every style of fragrance since it drew notes from all across the spectrum. Don't miss out on this as I think it's my new all time favorite.

Good but it’s no Bois De Portugal. Slightly stringent citrus up top with a woody-incense dry down. Nice, but nothing to shout about.

A well blended citrusy fougére but not really unique. It resembles me the Lalique Lion roars and the whispers from the Bois du PortugalBois du Portugal.
