"Passion" or "Why it hasn't become Dior."
For more than a year I have had a strange relationship to all those iris scents that resemble Dior Homme. I had liked Dior Homme Intense the most until then and often I was about to buy it. Something always bothered me, though. What I didn't like was that the beginning was always somehow very scratchy and disturbed the overall feeling of the fragrance a little bit.

What feeling? It is a fragrance that is sweet yet masculine. Strong on the border, a scent of binary segregation questioned. The fragrance that suits a man who openly deals with feelings, who can talk until late into the night. Someone who likes to watch you in the morning fascinates how you lie there quietly and breathe.

It's a scent that goes with the evening. He's dark, mysterious, erotic. It's this breath you feel on your neck just before you kiss it. This unexpected and initially shy kiss that is long and intimate, that takes off clothes and throws them to the ground, the kiss that turns off lights behind it and looks for the way into the bedroom.
Now the above mentioned scratchiness of Dior Homme Intense was always a disturbing detail for me. Noses that collide, shoelaces that don't want to open, TV noises of the neighbours that break the silence. Valentino Uomo Intense, on the other hand, begins more elegantly. It is nevertheless a quite loud fragrance with a good shelf life and a good sillage. However, I would compare Dior Homme Intense and Valentino Uomo Intense in the following manner: The first one talks loudly and convicts, an orator who can captivate the crowd. But sometimes he gets so carried away that his voice breaks under the energy and sometimes jumps to a pitch that was not intended. Valentino Uomo Intense also talks like that, but preserves the version. He talks loudly, but calmly. Convincing and safe.

The different scents of a fragrance released in 2016 I don't think you need to comment on any more great. Iris gives it powderiness, tonka and vanilla give it sweetness and the leather touch offers dark depth. I am generally a lover of sweet fragrances and find that Valentino Uomo Intense is the best interpretation of the sweet iris fragrance. I was fascinated by Dior Homme Intense because it was the first time I had the chance to get to know this fragrance, but with Valentino Uomo Intense I discovered a facet of it that I did not question.

I'm sure it's good - but it's just not mine!
I got the one with no intentions at the drug market MÜ.... and was really disappointed.
He wasn't mine. Somehow already good - nevertheless too "simple".
But again and again he came in front of my visor.
Since I actually like sweet scents - and especially strong ones - I was always torn back and forth.
Again and again I read in this forum and then I got myself the smell nevertheless, since I was persuaded by the many positive comments here.
The Intense was said to be rounder and more balanced. One smells (oh, I love the German language with its conjugations) the leather and the vanilla.

Then came the test: hm, hardly any difference to the normal Uomo...
Where's the leather - where's the vanilla?
Okay: 2 to 3 hours later they came then, the two desired additives; but is that not abundant very late?

To make a long story short:
After spraying on it smells for me after very strong plastic in a completely freshly manufactured and possibly still stuck together cardboard box! Do you know the smell? I'd call him penetrating.
It stays that way for hours! As mentioned above you can see vanilla and leather later on. Whereby vanilla remains briefly on a coffee there, the leather however unfortunately immediately again must continue.
Otherwise: cardboardised plastic and nothing else! Although in a strength that you are recognized at 3 meters - but just as linear... - it just doesn't happen.
And only Iris is simply too boring for me and in this case much too penetrating!
The fragrance may be quite good, but it is absolutely nothing special for me. But: it is actually very special: very strong, very straightforward, very synthetic and especially (for me wrongly) hyped! Maybe even especially boring.
I give him five points because he can't help it if I don't like him. Because well done it is then again somehow...

Very helpful Review 25  
All Valentino's are not equal: a lesson in Italian.
Ladies and Gentlemen!

Welcome to a new old episode of "4ajbukoshka and the Italian". Today there is once again a flashback and it goes to the year 2020, when the world was still so all right that you at least thought 2021 everything would be better.
For those who already know the two Valentinos or are not interested in an anecdote: Essentials to "Uomo Intense" there is in the paragraph above next.

It's 2020 and Tshajbukoshka needs a new handbag, yes: actually needs it, because her (only) one is irreparably broken.
Actually, she wanted to buy a black bag, since black is known to go with everything, but since black, on the other hand, doesn't even make up a tenth of her wardrobe, Tshajbukoshka had thrown her resolutions overboard, even before she had a look at the red handbag with the fancy pattern and studs.
"Valentino? That cheap? That's weird, though. Well, probably has some kind of flaw, but whatever. I like it." - she told the same evening to the Italian, you know: THE Italian, Signor Il Herzensbrecher, who picked her up from work by car and who of course immediately noticed her new handbag and who likewise did not leave the choice of the rest of her outfit without comment. He remained, gentleman through and through, besides charming also highly witty and funny.

You are aware, however, that this bag is the work of the other Valentino?
- What other Valentino? Train station and suitcase stealers!
Signorina, turn up the seat heaters and sit back, because here you get exclusive insights into the fine art of handbags, perfected, how could it be otherwise, by US, US ITALIANS!
- Here we go again? (Only recently he tried to make me believe that the Italians invented coffee, hadn't he reckoned that his pseudo-baristage blather would be refuted with facts and years within seconds) Let's hear it - and feel free to let me know when you're done, Signor Trappatoni.
Well... Valentino Garavani and Mario Valentino share many things: they are Italian, have a knack for fashion, use the Valentino brand name, however.... they're not both happy about it.
Mario Valentino, died before our time (in 1991), you might call him the Banksy of the fashion industry, because he used the Valentino name to fool the ignorant, like the signorina here in my passenger seat, sto cazo, and he succeeded brilliantly.
Valentino Garavani took legal action against it, but lost, because otherwise a certain Mario Valentino, more comparable to a plumber of the same name than to one of the last of the greats, would have taken action. Don't get me wrong, signorina. Mario Valentino makes good bags for the middle class, but Valentino Garavani is una sensazione vivente! This man simply has class!

Class also has this Valentino here.
I let myself be taught: it is the CORRECT, the only true Valentino, Valentino Garavani.
The bottle reminds me personally of the studs of the "Rockstud" (bag), to which there are also the matching shoes, pumps with straps, a dream.
The color, leaning on that of leather, wrongly signals that something dirty, wicked is hiding here? Far from it.
The contents of the bottle are high-end, classy, sweetish, heavy, and as hard to top on a scale of attractiveness as the Italian treat that lands in the passenger seat of his own car later that evening.
He fills the room, not just the car but that (how do you open the windows here?), with his presence, he can't be missed, and you can't help but notice him (and secretly drool at his words).
This man is loud (sometimes he could like turn the volume down a bit, but that's what you get for surrounding yourself with an Italian, haha) and confident.
In the end, however, you just want to cuddle him when he lets himself be carried drunk as a skunk into his own car, where he then falls asleep with a cuddly toy in his arms.
"Valentino Uomo" in its Intense version fits perfectly into the times: a man who can also show his androgynous, soft, sweet and vulnerable side without even thinking of being robbed of his masculinity.
He is just at most at first glance a macho - and the second look is very often worthwhile

Amazing mischievous masculinity
At first you can perceive a fine fruity note, which brings a very discreet sweetness and is due to the tangerine.

At the same time, the tangerine is enveloped by a beautiful soft aromatic note, which also carries a good portion of dark herbaceousness and in my opinion is responsible for the fact that the tangerine does not appear ripe, but still slightly greenish and comes from the clary sage.

Already in the top note the theme of the perfume can be guessed.

This constellation is perceptible on my skin for 20 minutes before the heart note unfolds.

A very clear, bright and intense powdery note can now be perceived, which exudes a very fine flowery aura and lends the fragrance something very noble and stems from the iris.

At the same time, the iris is enveloped in a fine, slightly viscous, sweet, almond-like note of tonka bean, which lends the fragrance very fine, gourmand features.

If you take a look at the two notes of the heart note, we automatically get an approximate picture of the fragrance, which surprised me a little bit with Uomo Intense, because the fragrance looks surprisingly masculine and charming, which carries a mischievous smile within it
The heart note is noticeable on my skin for 5 hours before the base asserts itself.

In the base there is a fine, at the same time pleasantly angular note that appears incredibly smooth and is due to the black leather.

The leather is wrapped in a very fine, lovely creamy note, which unites with the leather to form a whole and ensures that the base is pleasantly supple and comes from the vanilla.

In total, the fragrance lasts 8.5 hours on my skin,

The Sillage is conceived from the outset in such a way that one is perceived very clearly at one arm's length and this is maintained also 4 hours in such a way, before it reduces itself in quiet steps, until the smell finally completely fades away
I would like to express my sincere thanks to our perfume "ErhanSaceros" for the sample.

Nut cake with vanilla cream
120 g butter
220 g sugar
4 eggs
150 g flour
130 g nuts (walnuts, hazelnuts or almonds finely ground)
60 ml milk or water
1 pck. baking powder
1 pinch of salt
100 g almonds slivers roasted
100 g whipped cream and a handful of iris flowers for decoration

For the cream:
1 pck. vanilla pudding
40 g sugar
200 g cream
1 pck. cream stiffener
400 ml. Milk
1 piece of vanilla bean

So, first the milk with the sugar...

Oh, oops! This is yes Parfumo and not Chefkoch.de! Since I have probably mistaken, how embarrassing...
Well, I do not need to wonder, because this fragrance makes me strong Christmas baking feelings arise. In my opinion, a gourmand through and through.

After the initial tangerine, the scent transforms into an impossibly powdery, creamy vanilla-iris blend that is later joined, barely perceptibly, by some leather. This combination is so delicious that my wrist developed an almost insurmountable attraction to my nose after spraying it on. Warning: Makes addicted to regular consumption, not cool Valentino!

Well, all kidding aside, for someone who likes sweet scents, Uomo Intense must be the non plus ultra. I was rather averse to this division of perfumes until recently, but this one has converted me. It doesn't seem at all sticky or penetrating like most other gourmands, and that's despite having above average longevity and sillage. Rather subtle, upscale and a little luxurious, which is probably thanks to the iris. Perfect for going out or in the leisure.

I have hereby found my winter scent and now enjoy my nut cake with vanilla cream. By the way, you can find the complete recipe for this at this address: http://www.monika-triebenbacher.de/2015/12/nuss-torte-mit-vanillecreme/
