I ordered Bentley For Men Intense blind, based on a bunch of super positive reviews. The boys at Basenotes went wowie over this, saying it smelled so niche for a designer scent. What they hell were they thinking???
It smells so designer. The smell of the shopping mall. The smell of numerous pullouts in fashion magazines. Maybe a little added pepper. It wasn't so ridiculously priced, at least, on Amazon.
It does smell much better hours later on the drydown. But at the beginning and for several hours it has that horrible generic ambery-woody smell.
