Prada Intense, also known as Amber Intense, also known as pure awesomeness!
|Prada Intense or Amber Intense|
Notes according to Fragrantica:
Citrusy top notes
Heart: Patchouli, Balsam, Rose, Mimosa
Base: Musk, Labdanum, Tonka, Sandalwood, Vanilla
Being a huge fan of Amber and huger fan of Labdanum, this is one of the fragrances that brings to mind the Amber Accord heavily based on Balsamic notes and Vanilla. Labdanum jumps out first in its full glory, soft, full and warm. The whole thing is smoothed by Vanilla and creaminess of Tonka Bean, without being too sweet but just enough to make the concoction dreamy and delightful!
The Amber is accompanied by a beautiful, earthy and mild yet conspicuous Patchouli note that just blends into the skin. Patchouli merges very well with Amber Accord, making the whole thing sexier and much more seductive!
Prada Intense, to my nose, is a happy marriage between Amber Accord and Patchouli. Both manifest equally, don't overpower each other, they not only co exist but also enhance each other's beauty! The combination is sexy, irresistible and voluptuous! It is intense, in the nicest, softest and the most sensual way!
The Italian fashion house has a long list of perfumes to its credit. Prada original 2004 preceded Prada Intense launched in 2005, followed by Prada Tendre 2006 and Infusion d'Iris 2007, which are in my set of minis. The latest Amber version is L'eau Ambree 2009 and one for men, Amber Pour Homme Intense 2011, both of which I would love to try!
