Gentlemen Only Intense Review
It is a woody, oriental fragrance that provides a warm feeling and cozy. This balsamic cologne is a smokier and darker variation of the original with an additional note of leather. I have made a quick review.
It is packaged in a masculine and distinctive black and white ombré glass bottle. As a fragrances house, Givenchy was noted for its unique way of incorporating American Hollywood glamour and French-style into its products.
Also, the actress Audrey Hepburn has often been an inspiration for the brand. All this can be seen in the simple yet unique design of Gentlemen Only Intense. The bottle provides a dark and mysterious contrast to masculine fragrance. Consequently, this fragrance ends up being comfortable and wearable with a sophisticated touch.
The main ingredients consist of:
This balsamic cologne opens up with a powerful top note consisting of black pepper, pink pepper, green mandarin, birch leaf, mint, and lemon.
The middle note moves the scent of a spicy one to an earthier one. The middle note includes a combination of Texas cedar, patchouli, coriander, violet leaf, and leather.
Finally, the foundation of this fragrance is warm and cozy. The closing base note is made up of amber, incense, Tonka bean, vetiver, sandalwood, and vanilla.
So how does it smell?
At first, I thought it was going to be a strong and long-lasting smell as the cologne has the word “intense” on it. However, this all changed the moment I smelt it and used it. I am now convinced that “intense” referred to the emphasis on warmth and subtle richness that has been applied to this signature fragrance for gentlemen. Altogether, the top, heart and base notes create a plush scent that is sure to capture the attention of anyone you walk by

Summary of Amazon Customer Reviews
This product has a high rating of 4 stars on Amazon. However one only has to look at the positive reviews to know that this is among the best fragrances on the market. For instance, one user says that this product completely changed his dating life effectively turning him to a “chick magnet”.
How to Use it properly?
Gentlemen Only Intense has a moderate top note lifespan of about 3-4 hours. However, when this scent dies down it should not be reapplied as the heart and base notes will last you all day. You may not be able to smell it but those who come close to you will.
This cologne is a subtle, sensual and smooth fragrance that I would recommend saving for winter or fall. Otherwise, it is suitable for night time use.
Givenchy has really outdone themselves with this product. It offers a lot of value in a bottle and can completely change your love life.
