Amber Pour Homme Intense Review
The only Prada I have managed to review thus far. This one was a blind buy from a couple of years ago based on it's good price, critical reviews, and note descriptions that appealed to me. Successful? Hope you enjoy the review and thank you for watching.

The devil wears Prada...
OK, I'm gonna keep this short : PAPHI is a rich, dark and warm balsamic scent, especially good for colder weather.
Two things make it less appealing to me though : First of all, even though as an EdP the longevity is great (8-12 hours easily), the sillage is rather low and after wearing it maybe 15 times, no one has ever complimented on it. Secondly it seems very linear to me, not much change from the opening to the drydown. So I would wear it only to please myself.
That being said, it's a classy fragrance - the vibe it gives does actually somehow remind me of Gucci Envy for Men, this may be due to the myrrh perhaps?
Like it, but no love.

For a classic man
First, there is a hit of sweetness for just a short period of time. Then depending on weather, you can feel what I like to call wet patchouli notes, so sweetness goes away and you are left with a wet basement, wet soil, definitely on a darker side. It is the first ride.

But there is more after some time patchouli disappears and we have nice soapy scent with hints of amber and bergamot.
It is a classy one and would be a perfect match for a bit older man, wearing elegant clothes and a tie. At least this is how I can imagine a perfect match for these perfumes. But seems it is not only my opinion as you can be complemented that way as well.

The projection and longevity is mediocre, making good companion for an office environment.

on him, on her, either way
I'm not one to seek out fragrances designed specifically for men, because in my experience they're usually too masculine for my taste, often at the hand of some domineering bergamot. So, had I read the list of notes beforehand, I would've probably declined an offer to sample this one out of hand.

As luck would have it, I discovered a sample vial this morning in a pile of stuff while doing some household organizing and I sprayed my wrists impulsively, since I'd be showering soon anyway.

To my pleasant surprise, after a masculine burst of bergamot in the top notes burned off after an hour or less, what I've been enjoying all day is a lovely, understated oriental that is equal parts dry, sweet, earthy and refined, with just an extremely subtle layer of cool bergamot hanging around.

Based on my experience with Prada for women, I was expecting/hoping it would be an enveloping patchouli assault (I love patchouli), but it's not. (Though, it's quite possible I am quasi anosmic to patchouli, as many a well known patchouli bomb are not bombs to me at all. Coromandel, for example.)

On the strength of one quick spray, it's been projecting tastefully for several hours now, with no signs of fading. Which, of course, makes the price more forgivable.

Wonderful!
Darker and heavier than Prada Amber, this intense version smells wonderful. One of the best designer's release in my opinion.

It's a bit linear, with lots of patchouli and a bit resinous due to the myrrh.

It's sweet in the right amount. Actually there's a bit more of amber added here, but still not a true amber based scent.

Sillage, lasting power and projection are medium-high. Thumbs up!

Definition of luxury
Prada Amber Pour Homme Intense takes a different angle on it's older brother, Prada Amber Pour Homme. It's sophisticated, elegant and seducting scent blended with the highest quality ingredients. It was born from Daniela Andrier passion, closed in the sleek black bottle with shining golden Prada logo.
Original Amber Pour Homme is a really clean eau de toilette that brings wearer a feeling of just taking a shower. It's very classy and definitely not for everyone.
Prada Amber Pour Homme is a little bit different story. All begins with a bergamot note that goes deep inside your nose. Just a minute later this perfume begins to effuse it's true identity, the mysterious, dark, yet alluring aura. Amber, Myrrh and Patchouli that are very prominent describe the men that knows what he wants and knows how to get it. When I close my eyes and smell Prada Amber Pour Homme I imagine a man with a nice tailored suit. This fragrance is a definition of luxury and good taste.
This Prada is an eau de parfum which is not so common in male perfumery. It lasts all day on my skin, the vanilla accord accompanies me to the very end of the day. On the other hand this eau de parfum is strong and subtle at the same time, as it stays rather close to the skin.
If you're looking for perfume that definitely gets some attention and smells like "wow" Prada Amber Pour Homme Intense is definitely for you.
It's uncomparable to anything else on the market at this moment.
Truly beautifull and unique creation!

Amber Pour Homme was a mess. This is how it should have smelled. One of those instances where the flanker is much better than the original.+1

To me, this is myrrh heaven. But judging from the diversity of reviews, it must have some sort of hidden complexity.+2
