I find the original much more beautiful
Red Tobacco is a wonderful, lovely fragrance that comes just behind Carlisle for me. The new Intense will certainly find its target group among men, unfortunately it is clearly too harsh and too harsh for me. As has already been written here several times, it is more of a men's fragrance than an Intense fragrance. The herbal note on top is simply far too predominant for me and the actual beautiful scent of the original is lost too much. The fragrance will certainly find its fans, I just love sweet fragrances and for those who do the same, I can only advise against Intense. It's certainly a high-quality fragrance, but it's not mine. Stick with the original is my recommendation if you like it sweet. I had somehow hoped for more...

Fire in a retirement home
This is how you can imagine the fragrance. Smoke wherever possible, and the little bit that lingers at the end smells musty, old, badly placed oud... Mothballed lamb notes in a 100-year-old wooden cupboard. Patchouli drone does its job.
How "sweet" comes in at number 3 in the list of associations is a complete mystery to me.

Head/heart/base is also a bit of a mishmash at this point. Don't get me wrong, I've smelled worse, but beautiful is different. The only thing you have to say is that the durability is quite good, I've rubbed water, soap and disinfectant over it 3 times, but the mock holds. I just sprayed something else on the back of my hand to soften it a bit. Oh dear ...

A decent flanker with leather and a hint of oud
I have not tried the OG but I own Carlisle which it is often compared to. Compared to Carlisle, this is drier and more "amberwoody". More focus on tobacco and wood while I think Carlisle focuses more on vanilla, apple and cinnamon.

IRT also has a synthetic oud that pulls a little in the leathery direction, maybe even approaching barnyard territory before settling down. The leather lasts quite well and would probably be what stands out through the perfume's lifetime. Performance is great and I easily get 12+ hours with decent projection throughout its duration. Your shirt will smell until you wash it.

On a side note, I think this type of fragrance falls into the "pseudoniche" category. Such fragrances that are marketed as complex olfactory works of art but are actually quite simple. I like it though. It is sexy and easy to wear.

A solid 8.5/10

My girlfriends comment was "Very good. Strong without being obnoxious.". Which I would say is a good grade considering she is 30 weeks pregnant!

As if ”Red Tobacco” wasn’t intense
Did Pierre Montale really think ”Red Tobacco needs more power!!!!”? My god. The OG is well known to be nuclear and this is no different. Red Tobacco Intense is less synthetic/medicinal in the opening. Even darker than before with more focus on oud/leather.
Be careful with the trigger on this one, or the fragrance will end up wearing you.

It's not the journey, but the destination.
I honestly wasn't sure what to expect. I purchased this blind as I own the original Red Tobacco EDP (screw cap), which in my opinion always felt like an Extrait. While I cannot compare to the reformulation of the EDP with the magnetic cap, I almost couldn't tell the difference between the Intense and vintage EDP. Dare I say, the performance of Red Tobacco EDP (2017) seems to be noticeably superior to Red Tobacco Intense. I also find that the patchouli was more prominent in the old formula. This was one of my favorite facets about Red Tobacco. Has the quality been reduced and slyly reintroduced as an "Intense" or simply redefined? This version starts out just as abrasive and noisy as the classic, however I find that 3 hours after application it attempts to take on a new identity. As it dries down, the patchouli note bows out gracefully and leather takes the stage. Here, we have a case where it is redundant to own both fragrances. However, considering the dry down differs with both formulas you may find yourself preferring one over the other. With Red Tobacco it's not the journey, but the destination.

More oud/leather driven, mildly chocolatey. The spices & fruitiness of the OG don't pop as much, blend isn't as synthetic. Still pointless.
