Charmingly Complex
BEST USED IN SMALL QUANTITIES!!! It's very strong, but so beautiful when you get the right amount. it's got a slight Christmas-y quality to it, but smells a little different every time you catch a waft of it. Lots of different aspects to it but somehow they all work well together!

Softly unisex
Interesting mix of notes grabbed my attention; I wondered if this would turn out to be a mundane tropical floral but it is just gorgeous! The cool leathery note of the grey amber contraposes the other soft, warm notes, lending a very unisex tone to the fragrance. I've worn this a few times already and it is also going on my full-size to-buy list!

Smell is so bad . Not right that I had to pay for this one when I didn’t even pick this one to add in my que. Scentbird just decided to pick this one and add it into my que . Awful awful awful awful for Scentbird to do that to me and I am paying for this. I didn’t even have to spray the fragrance on as soon as I took it out of the case and The scent is so terribly pungent I instantly got a headache and couldn’t get the smell from my olfactory. I immediately when to my coffee beans to take the scent away just to keep me from vomiting and that is how bad scent is

Not good!
I was automatically sent this fragrance and what a disappointment! I read somewhere that it's supposed to be unisex but neither my husband or I will wear it. The scent is intense, woodsy, musky (in a bad way) and for lack of a better word...old. After a few minutes on it does cross over to a more androgenous scent that could be either your grandma's worst perfume, or your grandpa's worst cologne, I'm not sure exactly which.

Gorgeous amber!
Costume National Scent Intense leans masculine to my nose, but that never bothers me! Sometimes I'm looking for something a bit richer and edgy. Scent Intense fits the bill. The tea and hibiscus note are lovely, but it's the rich amber and sandalwood that really draw me in. Perfect sillage and it wears well throughout the day. Highly recommended if you love a good amber perfume!

Strong Unisex
This scent is perfect for both men and women in my opinion. very seductive and deep on a woman, but very classic and formal on a man. The amber and sandalwood are dominant in this fragrance, and while I don't distinctly smell any floral notes I do get a hint of sweetness in the dry down. Longevity is phenomenal, about 8 hours on my skin and silage can be beastly so use a light hand.

Combination
Soft, Creamy, Wood Scent
Those that like scents traditionally labeled "for men" or "masculine" may find that this particular scent lacks the oomph - the assertive woodiness - that they're used to. It also has very detectable floral notes, which some may associate with feminine fragrances. But, in my opinion, this is definitely a unisex scent. I wouldn't describe this scent as sweet, it is more like an "off-dry" scent. So, the presence of amber and the fruity notes give you a modicum of sweetness, but nothing that is too much. This scent is definitely smooth and polished in its presentation. The woods are dominant, but the florals are present - almost like you would encounter them walking through a garden. It's clean, warm and powdery . . . . Yes, that's an odd combination. You probably don't have anything exactly like this in your wardrobe. It's well-blended and very easy to wear. I would say that this is an office safe scent with a few curveballs to keep things interesting.
