Amazing mischievous masculinity
At first you can perceive a fine fruity note, which brings a very discreet sweetness and is due to the tangerine.

At the same time, the tangerine is enveloped by a beautiful soft aromatic note, which also carries a good portion of dark herbaceousness and in my opinion is responsible for the fact that the tangerine does not appear ripe, but still slightly greenish and comes from the clary sage.

Already in the top note the theme of the perfume can be guessed.

This constellation is perceptible on my skin for 20 minutes before the heart note unfolds.

A very clear, bright and intense powdery note can now be perceived, which exudes a very fine flowery aura and lends the fragrance something very noble and stems from the iris.

At the same time, the iris is enveloped in a fine, slightly viscous, sweet, almond-like note of tonka bean, which lends the fragrance very fine, gourmand features.

If you take a look at the two notes of the heart note, we automatically get an approximate picture of the fragrance, which surprised me a little bit with Uomo Intense, because the fragrance looks surprisingly masculine and charming, which carries a mischievous smile within it
The heart note is noticeable on my skin for 5 hours before the base asserts itself.

In the base there is a fine, at the same time pleasantly angular note that appears incredibly smooth and is due to the black leather.

The leather is wrapped in a very fine, lovely creamy note, which unites with the leather to form a whole and ensures that the base is pleasantly supple and comes from the vanilla.

In total, the fragrance lasts 8.5 hours on my skin,

The Sillage is conceived from the outset in such a way that one is perceived very clearly at one arm's length and this is maintained also 4 hours in such a way, before it reduces itself in quiet steps, until the smell finally completely fades away
I would like to express my sincere thanks to our perfume "ErhanSaceros" for the sample.

Vocally different
Who smells and evaluates this scent, doesn't necessarily get around to comparing it with Dior Homme Intense, both are too similar and each has a different relationship to it.

Let's see.

Does anyone else know the group Van Halen?
Yeah? Yeah Then you can quickly know what I mean.
No? I guess you don't understand.

From 1978 to 1984 6 albums of this band appeared in original line-up with David Lee Roth as singer.
Then they separated from him and he was replaced by Sammy Hagar.

Even today, people are still discussing whether Van Halen was better with David Lee Roth or with Hagar. There are 2 camps, but it is a fact that the group was very successful with both. For me personally, there are real highlights with both, but the original remains the original cast with the bigger hits.

David Lee Roth was a showman, an acrobat on stage, a provocateur, the pure sex for some ladies.
Sammy Hagar was a pure musician who had been successful solo before or in other bands like Montrose.
It's like that with the two scents here.
The Dior is and remains unmatched, for me real love, it was the first perfume many years ago that really triggered something in me and every perfume after that must be measured against it, especially if it goes in the same direction. My first comment was dedicated to the Dior, a rather trivial one unlike many that followed, but that doesn't change the fact that this is my fragrance.

The Valentino has so much in common, the same rhythm, great solo, everything except the voice to come back to the Van Halen comparison.

The iris dominates, then it goes in a leathery vanilla direction without letting go of the iris. That's also nice and I like it well, but it doesn't reach the original, which is more multifaceted. Critics might say that Valentino will be unimaginative at some point because it's linear, but I think that's ok because the scent is great.

He is like the bottle dark and powdery with sweet leather in the background and holds out well, there's nothing to complain about.
I don't notice much of mandarin at the beginning, I'm immediately dominated by a spicy iris, it remains the lipstick which is then covered with a leather jacket at the end...imitation leather.

Conclusion: I like both, but the original remains unmatched!

Elegant and Classy Fragrance in Jazzy Environment (9.5/10)
Flowery musky and a bit sweet on the scent, gives the mood of elegant and classy. High class scent.

The hold of the scent is nice. It depends on the environment, weather/condition, activity involve, and season of the country.
For non 4-seasons countries, it is very suitable on evening/night and cold/rainy season. The longevity can hold longer (7-8 hours) rather than on day or summer season (5-6 hours).
For the 4-seasons countries, the longevity is better and longer especially on evening/night and fall/winter season (more than 12 hours).

The performance is not on the spot. It is continuously and gradually. The top notes, its similar to Dior Homme. However, when its go to the middle notes and base notes, the scent is getting stronger and hold better.

It depends on the environment and location. Cold and air-conditioned place give a better sillage performance rather than in the crowd and open places.

The Valentino Uomo intense is having its own uniqueness. Even it is quite similar to Dior Homme, but its has its own uniqueness which create its own identity and popularity.

Bottle Design
The design is nice. sort of crystal design and its shows the elegance and classy of fragrance.

Just, wow.
In comparing this to Dior Homme Intense, they both start off very similar (lots of iris), though VUI quickly becomes less powdery and more sweet than DHI. A slight zestiness from the mandarin orange and slight mintiness from the clary sage become present (a very slightly fresh orange scent), with the sweetness from the Tonka bean heart coming in quickly to sweeten the iris. After about an hour and a half, DHI is hardly noticeable as a skin scent on my hand (latest formulation), while VUI continues to project strongly. VUI ultimately becomes vanillicly (not a word, I know) sweet, still iris-y but not too much so, and the leather provides an elegantly dark and masculine undertone (very subtle). Ultimately, I love this fragrance. Very classy, strong, masculine, yet has a significant presence of sensitivity. For a well-dressed gentleman. 5 hours later, still a good presence (1 spray), still smells like smooth, sweet, slightly orangey iris. Dry down could function as a good close encounter scent, if not over-applied. 24+ hours later, dry down smells of leather and vanilla with a hint of iris. Pleasant.

Best Vanilla note in a perfume ever made.
I never buy designer perfumes but I'm seriously considering getting this one.

Yes, it's very similiar to Dior Homme, but the drydown is definetely better. Close to the end, almost all the notes dissapear to leave only a very clean and pure scent of vanilla. Almost organic vanilla, High quality vanilla. It's magic when this happens. I'm getting a bottle.
