The Buddel Rum in test
Me and my cowl friends from our rocker club Wolle's Eleven were once again on the hunt. After the next luscious leathery scent for us. Just had to be cheap, so the price. Everything for the bikes was on it. So we looked for the next snapper after the Cerutti and the Dark Rebel. The latter was known to be too soft alcoholic, either the girls washed it down or we used it for disinfection. Actually it was only our Holden who threw it down

Now you hear and read about the Bentley so often. It is not my motorcycle brand due to lack of motorcycles but the little fragrance sounded quite good. Should be a pithy leather scent. So the eight of us go into perfumery. Oh, I must explain. We used to be 11, but then three of us got out because of a motorcycle and dolly incident. Remember, it's better to carry boxes and tape won't hold the car to the motorcycle.
The cashier's hands in the air. A customer dropped an Aventus bottle in fright. Afterwards he told me that it wasn't out of fright before us but because of the batch and because of our appearance he saw the chance to eliminate the bottle from this batch.
"Put your hands back down, young lady! This is not a robbery! We just wanted to test some scents."
The situation relaxed noticeably although we were observed. Colleague Kalle inquired about a scent and was offered the corresponding shower gel. So I had to intervene: "Take it, Kalle! You are in dire need of it! My wet dog smells better than you!" Case solved.
So off to the shelf where the Bentley Intense is. "Hecki, what does Parfumo say?"
"It's a fragrance bomb, open up that bottle." So I opened up and sprayed. What can I say? Intense rum, you can tell the cinnamon is there, because honestly, it's not good for the rum. The Bentley Intense has a rather plain smell. But unfortunately so intensive that our Udo had to be held back. He is not allowed to drink any more and wanted to buy several bottles directly. We had to intervene.
Here on Parfumo there was something about pepper and we all agreed, it was noticeable. Rather like the laurel in the background, which added a certain bitterness. In the center first the rum and then soon the leather. It smelled as if the alcohol would open the dirty pores of the leather and this melange now breaks its olfactory path.
Now Kalle nodded approvingly after he had read through all the ingredients. "Yes, yes, the African rose geranium stands out clearly." "Boy, what about you? Too much inhaled of the stuff? You don't know what a geranium looks like!" "Sure I do. We have it in the garden. It's just a flower." No one else smelled something from Kalle's garden in that perfume. But everyone only knew the beer tent set and the table from downstairs from Kalle's garden

Well, let's get some fresh air and let the scent work. So off to the pub! Not around here. So we went to a café, waitress came, pot of course. Except for Rudi, who ordered a Vanilla Macchiato Espresso Doppio. I rather sat down for a while "So, wool, now tell me, what do you think about this thing here?" I'm taking a long look around. I couldn't think of anything at first. Then I took a sip of coffee. "What can I tell you? First he hits you out for alcohol-soaked leather and then he refines it, but I found it to be simple knitting and more a deception about the weaknesses."
"Where you say it, exactly. Not much happens there and the leather smells more like the cover of the garden furniture, not fine leather like for my motorcycle."
Now Udo answered: "You know, I have already consumed a lot of alcohol in my life Everyone nodded. "But this, the rum, it doesn't smell that good. Rather a mass rum, matching the mass scent "I also mind the course, men. It gets paler and paler and towards the end somehow smoother, warmer and woodier. But only subtly warm and woody. Sandalwood and cedar, yes, but I don't recognize incense. That's too little for me "Where you say it's true. At eye level with the Dark Rebel safe, 1881 Signature is a little better and leatherier than those two if you ask me. They only differ in that one mixes high-gloss leather and rum, the Bentley is dirtier."
"All right, men! Then we're through. Yes, Udo?"
"You go ahead, I might take one of those rum things, I'll take my perfume."

Bentley Intense has a strong focus on rum; both leather and rum do not smell high quality and their blend is nothing you don't know. I know the scent has many friends that I don't want to get too close to. For someone looking for leather scents, this is not a good choice. For me it hits a notch with the mentioned scents, all of them are different from each other, but in the end they are similar in spirit. The Cerutti perhaps the least. Bentley Intense is quite linear, swells up like Pandora's Box, gets gradually quieter and in the end even cosy, the scent has something of warm alcohol.

Too good to be true!
WOW, ... and again WOW! That's it, that's the scent! Right at the beginning this incredible explosion: bergamot, leather, cinnamon ... Waaahnsinn! And then the revelation: the rum, a class of its own! Truly of the finest, simply paradisiacal, heavenly, divine ... An unprecedented scent experience permeates me, so noble and valuable comes this Markanz - like the Bentleys themselves.

Yeah, that Nathalie Lorson just did it and set herself a monument with that hammer fragrance. I have never encountered such a charismatically balanced rum elixir with a finely spiced oriental flavor and smoke addition before. Unique! For the price of a discounter, a niche is offered here - also in a mega-stylish bottle, and ...

...suddenly a cold shiver ran through me! ...what ... what ... is going on? ... what ... (still dizzy), ... me, ... I'm ... soo tired ...

"Fresh! ... Fresh!" ... Hmm? ... "Hey, Fresh, come on, wake up, man!" Suddenly I felt a violent plucking, ... on top of my head, as if suction cups were pulled off me ... and then this light ... glaring! ...still so tired ...

"Fresh, now stop it! ...do you hear me? ...and take that thing off!" I drove up and rubbed my eyes first. I just hissed a little clearer: do you have to open all the windows? ...it's cold here! "You're the only way to wake up ... and have you been on another trip like this? You know that's unhealthy with these replicas... without shielding, in plug-to-mind-mode!"

Yes, yes... and?

"Man, where have you been?"

...at Parfumo.

"Waaas? ...and for that you take half a day of con?"

... Yes, yes.

"But why?"

... just once, ... just once I wanted to experience how fantastic I like Bentley for men Intense.

Only once ...
in the matrix !

.

P.S. How I really find this fragrance, remains better my secret, because the above rating is indeed too good to be true ;-)

A must!
Bentley for Men intense is ridicolously good. Breathtakingly good, the kind of good which makes you feel there’s still hope for perfumery – both niche and designer, as Intense easily stands above most of both – and it is somehow rooted into both. As other reviewers noted in fact, it brilliantly takes its inspiration from Idole de Lubin for all the exotic boozy-woody stuff, a couple of Tauer perfumes (I strongly agree with L’air du Désert Marocain reference in particular, I clearly smell almost the exact same base of tasty spicy ambroxan for a while), and Amouage’s Jubilation XXV. I would also add Gucci pour Homme I, not because of the notes (even if I get some subtle similarities) but because of a sort of common ground of dark, breezy and understated woody-incense elegance which so far, basically only Gucci pour Homme I itself was able to express at its best – and now, Bentley does it too. Intense is decidedly darker, though: it’s boozy, peppery and leathery with a genius aromatic breeze of greenish, fougère-like notes of bay leaves and a hint of cocoa-like patchouli (think Lutens’ Borneo 1834), but as for many fragrances by Nathalie Lorson, showing an irresistible sort of dusty, weightless resinous-talc texture making it smell discreet, warm, slightly sweet and extremely sophisticated. Also slightly fruity too.

And for once, the “concept” and the skills of the nose are supported by a decent budget, as this smells clearly a great quality fragrance also from the point of view of the materials. It is rich (despite being unobtrusively “thin”), deep, vibrant, it has a brilliant evolution from the sharp boozy-leathery-patchouli opening (the leather in particular is really good here for me – Amouage-like, again) to a fantastic amber-incense drydown with sweet echoes of benzoin, leather and talc. It is really mannered and refined, at the same time totally safe and versatile, almost close to skin as a proper classy scent should wear, but long lasting. My expectations were quite high given the praise by a couple of “key” reviewers for me, but it easily surpassed them, and I think Bentley and Firmenich couldn’t really do better than this. Well to cut it short I can’t say better what other reviewers already said – this is easily one of the very best fragrances of the last decade, period. Apparently the prices dropped as I paid 40 eur/100 ml on a French website, and that’s a steal for such a great fragrance.

You're kidding, right?
This can only be a social project, or a drunk product manager with the wrong price calculation Excel, because this fragrance is simply away the hammer! I really can not understand why he is so cheap. I would buy him even for triple.

For me, the opening is very woody, but also not too strong. After a few minutes, the wood becomes less and less, a shot of whiskey makes itself felt and immediately afterwards cinnamon, which makes the fragrance extremely elegant. Elegant and slightly somber, that's exactly what the scent is for me. Perfect with a leather jacket or a chic black coat.

I am really excited and look forward to wearing it this year in the fall

Pity
After I saw and read the good reviews and the price was very affordable, I decided to buy it blind ... often a mistake.
It is an olfactory bomb with a huge projection and duration, but I really can't handle it, it even stuns me: too much like liqueur.
It's not meant for compliments, but it is supposed to attract attention from a distance.
The output is very strong with 2 sprays filling a room.

So for people who like alcoholic notes I can only recommend the Bentley Men intense.

Manly stuff. I wear this often and when I want. It’s basically making a statement to me: I don’t care what you think.

I find it very sweet. It's a strong RUM scent with resinous notes, some woody notes and leather in the background, and slightly spicy.
