Editor's TipEditor's Tip

Know your scent hierarchy: The higher the percentage of essential oils, the longer a scent lasts on your skin. Eau de Colognes typically contain one to eight percent essential oils. Eau de Toilettes contain between five and 15 percent. Eau de Parfums can have up to 20 percent.

Nice Lasting Scent

The scent is nice and more importantly seems to last 4+ hours.

Classic/Professional Scent

This scent seems solid, classic, and professional - like something from "Mad Men." I love wearing this one to the office and will likely buy a full-size bottle.

Should be for a women

This product smelled like somthing an old lady would wear. I had many people smell me wearing it so it was effective, but the problem was they thought I was wearing perfume. My wife also requested I take a shower so I could remove the sent; as it was making her sick.

Floral Heaven

I'm a guy who prefers and sticks to clean colognes,but this stuff blew me away! It has a bunch of different floral oils working in unison,to create a rich depth and complexity in this scent. I was hesitant when I first smelled it,but then i sprayed myself with it and couldn't stop smelling my wrist! It's warm.romantic and intoxicating. I love this floral scent and that's an unheard of thing for me.

it was alright

It might not have smelled that good which is why i don't remember using it that much. I would have to think about it before buying the full size.

A Must Buy
SampledPurchased

If you ever make the decision to buy an adult cologne, make it this one. I may not be the foremost scholar in perfumery, but I can tell you that this stuff has an almost metaphysical quality to it. Aside from smelling amazing, it makes you feel young and alive. Quick caveat: Just a little will do! A single spray of this cologne will keep you lit all day.

good
Sampled

This perfume is utterly enchanting. It's elegant and dark but somehow approachable, like incredibly plush velvet, and manages to smell modern without being synthetic. My introduction to Scent Intense came through a man I'd gone home with; so bewitched was I by his perfume that I sniffed through his cologne collection while he was sleeping in order to determine just what scent it was that had captured me. It's now one of my staples, and fortunately wears just as well--in my opinion--on women as it does on men. What else can I say? It smells like nothing else I've encountered--or at least is so brilliantly blended that it's hard to pull out a single definable note. This gives it a wonderful mysteriousness, as it's not just an exotic scent, but a wholly new one. It's one of my all-time favorites.

This scent is a must have! Such standout fragrances take your scent profile to the next level. Never before have I felt so sophisticated with just a scent alone. If you are a young man in need of that extra little spice, INTENSE by CoSTUME NATIONAL is what you need!

Not for me
Sampled

This was an interesting scent, as it was very reminiscent of incense. I didn't like how it mixed and changed scent with my body chemistry when applied.
