Mercedes Benz Intense Men EDT Spray, 120ml
About this deal
This ultra-visible star becomes the emblem of a highly exclusive club for whom success is a signature. I imagine that this is what a S550 fresh off the Benz dealer lot smells like (sophisticated, class-leader, and resinous). Best way for me to describe it is it smells very "seductive" and I picture a very mysterious guy like James bond wearing this fragrance.
It sticks to both skin and clothes admirably, and as I mentioned above, the wood and leather notes are not so heavy that you'll gas out passersby or give yourself a headache. The smell is heavy and woody whit powerful scent of oudwood, which has recently been very fashionable and has many fragrances in this space.Extreme" scales back the vanilla from Club Black and rounds it out with a healthy dose of patchouli (on the chocolatey side), some light woods and just a tease of leather. This is not "very similar" to Tuscan leather; people are only saying that because TL is the most prominent sweet/fruity-leather of today, and has popularized the leather note again. As a final remark: I can honestly say that I like this Mercedes a bit more than the other noses around me.
But hey you could also rock this with a suit, probably best for evenings most of the year but I would avoid any hot days.
This is much like Ombre Leather, in that you would wear these in the same situations, but this is a bit more mass-pleasing and versatile. It got to the point where I used it as a air freshener for my room, but I don't even do that anymore. The most important change from the opening to the dry-down is the change from a moderate to low projection, that until the amber enters the blend boosting projection back to moderate again but without adding its tone.
