Magic
Once upon a time, bees gathered the nectar of delicate blossoms in the glades of Brittany's forests and made them into golden honey.
The elves harvested it and infused it with milk and morning dew and magic.
Boadicea filled it into flasks to give the wearer the power to bewitch.
But to succumb to honey and intoxication itself is the wearer's greatest danger. To which he willingly exposes himself...

Thank you very much!
It was you who showed me what there is to discover in the world of perfume. And it was you, too, who led me on the trail of this grandiose scent.
You described him so wonderfully, brought his honey-sweet soul closer to me so that I almost had the feeling that I could almost taste his aroma.
Because of you I just had to test him and fell in love immediately!

"Intense is so much more than just dark forest honey. The citrus note at the beginning is fresh like morning dew, only a hint, the lily is soft and light and creamy. Yes, the honey dominates "Intense", is there from beginning to end and yes, it is full-bodied, dark and spicy without being sticky. But there's more. I perceive an appeal of beeswax.
The fragrance has depth and I blame the combination of jasmine, rose and patchouli for this, even though it is almost impossible to smell them individually. But if one would take a bouquet of these 3 splendid flowers and inhale their common opulent bouquet, then this symphony could be found again in "Intense", even if only subliminally.
The vanilla, however, I take only as a framework, it carries the whole work, lends it its unusual presence and endurance. She makes the honey shine in its dark gold

To me, this Celtic potion is more than just a perfume. It is aromatherapy for body & soul, quasi antidepressant in the atomizer. A fragrance for queen bees, forest treetops, druids and mythical creatures. An olfactory dreamcatcher.
I am very grateful to you that I was able to get to know and experience him through you in so many different ways and that I am now connected with him.
Thank you, Parfumo!

Honeyed intenseness
Intense by Boadicea opens with a blast of vanillin and tonka on a dry woody accord, slightly salty too, with earthy and rooty nuances. At the heart of the scent, a nice pollen-caramel "roasted" accord of dry, resinous honey sweetened by a silky floral breeze and light fruity hints. I must admit this honey accord is quite well played, it is thick and compact, dry and crunchy, quite compelling too, and it beautifully and effortlessly blends with the earthy-woody side of patchouli, and with the flowers. It is not sweetish and not cloying like it often happens with this type of scents, despite being quite bold and strong it's still pleasant. After a hour or so, the pollen-resin-honey notes move a bit aside leaving the main stage to patchouli and dry flowers, in a way that it does not really "change", just feels like the harmony makes a 180° twist – now the center is patchouli and flowers, and they are sweetened by honey and resins. So in short, a nicely executed honey-floral gourmand scent, a bit affected, far better than the average gourmand scents, still with a couple of defects in my opinion – mostly due to the fact it is quite bold, so you better try it carefully before wearing it. For "aficionados".

Classical music
INTENSE is so refreshing and it soothes so much the soul, as the classical music.

Its bottle could be called "chest of flowers", billion of flowers, that are long-range, intensive, lovely ones, giving true impression of the nature. Mimosa is the nearest association here.

Later on a fruitty proliferation begins upon the flowers, covered by honey. You can almost taste the fruit juice, it is exuberantly sweet, but still keeps the refreshing aroma of the best tartish fruits. Natural all along, very fine.

My sister told: this is a fruitty honeyed cake. Please confirm with sample, do not blind-buy, since the perceptions can be a bit different of course.

So after a bush grew from my wrist, it is hard to keep writing on the keyboard, therefore I express the rest of my opinon shortly:
Endurance: 100%
Sillage: 100%
Gender: female.
