Pleasures Intense Fragrance Reviews

I had this a Christmas Gift Set years ago.... it is delightful, beautiful, fresh and feminine. I much prefer it to the original Pleasures. Layering it with the body products just made me feel wonderfully fragrant all over. Love it.

*swooooooooon* I just received this today. Just taking it out of the box it was mailed in I could smell the fragrance. How devine it smells! I am praying it works with my chemistry. Regular Pleasures does so I am hope-hope-hoping :o)

This is the most natual-smelling floral I know. On my skin, it stays like that, which means I smell like flowers, not like a woman wearing a perfume that smells like flowers. It has this bitter-sweet very natural smell of peony and lily. I like it, but it makes me feel uncomfortable beacause it doesn't blend with my skin and remains somehow disconnected. As others have said, longevity and sillage are great.

I once made the mistake of buying this fragrance, as I loved Pleasures and I thought "wow, this is Pleasures Intense, so it has to be even better!".
I was so wrong.
It could be called a twin to "Beyond Paradise". Sweet, sickening, cloying, it clings to your skin and it never goes away, like the "sticky" feeling on a hot and humid day.
Beware: white flowers and indolic notes ahead!

It's an intense blooming bouquet of white flowers and greens. I smell strong presence of jasmine and it's very prominent that a little spritz can last a long long long day (yes, I meant the 3x "long"). Too strong to my taste. Maybe it suits more mature woman. Reminds me of my mum's and grandma's preference of perfume because they like strong smelling perfumes.

I absolutely love Pleasures Intense! It's a bold scent that lasts all day! It smells like a whole bouquet of flowers and woods at the same time…mmmmmm! This is a pretty strong scent; only need a couple sprays to get great sillage so the bottle lasts a long time.

Fresh, uplifting and beautiful, for some reason it smells like sweet peas on me. I cannot win with the Pleasures line however, the original makes me sneeze like nothing else and irritates me to no end, and this version smells amazing to my nose but makes all those around me sneeze like mad. Not for me unfortunately though I loved the scent personally.

LUXURIOUS. It's a bomb of fresh, crisp, peppery peony. The lily is quite loud as well, but it's the copilot for the massively strong peony note. To prevent floral overload, the maple really does a good job of sweetening things up.

I've been searching for this for quite a while, and I happened to find a bottle tucked away at the Lancome corner in my local Macy's....the sales associate said she purposefully hides it because she wanted it to go to someone who would really value it. So I definitely had to snag it.

I wear the original Pleasures all the time, and I even ventured into the realm of Pleasures Exotic....this one is quite similar to Pleasures, yet not as pleasant and snowy.

Intense has a much more spicy accord, which I can attribute to the styrax note and the combination of jasmine and lily that ends up becoming indolic in a beautiful way.

It's basically like Pleasures, dress-to-kill....think "Pleasures: Burlesque edition." It's quite lovely.

Oh, this is lovely. Wait... In Very Small Doses.
I don't think I have ever been so enchanted with a floral 'fume as I am with this one. It's very tempting to lash it onto the skin, but please don't. Another "less is more" juice for the list. Example - I was decanting a little into a vial for a very good friend. A tiny bit from the neck of the bottle got onto my fingers. Two days and much washing up later, it was still there, fading, but there. Now that is a bargain. You can get some good mileage out of this. I prefer to use the body lotion to be honest, it's still beautiful but not "in your face". It's a lovely, youthful roll in the flower bed. I'm a bugger for getting headaches over those heavy lily notes, and this does hold the risk of feeling like you have been forcefully beaten about the head and neck with a very ripe bunch of lilies. But hell, I own a bottle, and a bottle of the body lotion, so it's a winner for me.

I used to own this perfume and wish I still had it. Pleasures Intense, smells like you are walking through a garden of lilacs. Those purple and white flowers that grown in bushes. A lovely fragrance if you are into floral perfumes. I also do get the whiff of maple and vanilla as it starts to wear off throughout the day. Very long lasting too. Well worth the money.

I got a bottle after smelling this on a work mate. Every lunch hour I would absent mindedly ask her - what's that perfume- after a week we would smile coz - here it comes- Pleasures intense-
I love the floral note of course but the exotic original unusal cheery note that comes with it was so uplifting.

Most authentic floral scent I have ever tried. It almost creates the effect of seasonal allergies- spring and summer scent for sure. It can take a leafy route on the skin. Sentimental value is attached to this one and I will never throw it away.

When I smell this perfume, I feel I'm in the garden of lilies. It's very beautiful fragrance, but I don't think it's sensual enough. Well, honestly, i guess it is not the perfume for hot dates. I said this because it won't really make the men take in deep breath of this fragrance in the lift like when I wear YSL.

I found a small travel size bottle of this while I was cleaning out my bathroom. I put two spritzes on my wrist. At first it was just a burst of straight alcohol. I thought to myself, "oh, it's too old." Went about my business, and sometime later this beautiful feminine smell developed. I could not help but smelling my wrists thinking this is why I had liked the fragrance in the first place. It is very floral, but to my nose theres a sophistication there. I did take it out of my rotation because unfortunately it gave me headaches. I might give it a go again or try Pleasures. Would be a shame to eliminate something so pleasant.

I simply love this perfume. It smells fresh and clean and "alive". It is not over powering and is not offensive to others. I get compliments on this one all the time. It is potent so a little spray will do you. It is my fall back perfume because I have a lot of them and when I want to be just me....I wear this one. Good for day or night, winter,fall,spring and summer. It's a keeper.

The reviews here are so flippy ...according to tastes, naturally....But Also...this is really a Winter Fragrance. To me I can not bare it when the temperature rises...but I love it when it is quite cold outside. I looked at my bottle today reminancing when I bought it. It was Winter, and I was rediscovering perfumes again...
I am more of a spicey, animalic, dark Rose...or Vintage Violet type of doll...I loke Florals...but need them to have UMPH! This is a very "Pretty" Floral...and maybe I chose the Intense...because I need it to be. It is not Animalic like Pure Poison....But Ravishingly Pristine and Propper...with a Naughty side that leaves Curiosity to the imagination.
***** My favorite places to spray this? Not on my neck! Do not want to pass out from the intensity...but on the back of my neck or betwixt my breasts...

When i first spraayed on my wrist, it was like "arrgh! to strong and heady", but after sometime (say like 10mins) i passed my wrist infront of me and got this deliciously sweet n spicy fragrance. its a keeper, for those special occasions, but to b sprayed lightly though. Can b used for d office too; one of my favorites. And please its in No way like CD J'dore...at all!!

I like florals, I like Pleasures (original), but I did not like this at all.

The fruit sugar and intensity of sweet sickly flowers and blackcurrants just didn't give up. Very sickly and way too "intense". I didn't feel it was related to Pleasures at all and washed it off. Dreadfully sickly and stayed with me for hours, even though I didn't want it to!

Being such a fan of Pleasures and Pleasures Delight I decided to give this one a try. As soon as I sparyed it on I thought, all I need now is pancakes. Too much of the maple, woodsey scent on my skin. I gave it to a friend whom it smelled totally different on, glad it worked for her. As for myself, I don't want to smell like maple syrup all day.

A very generic mid-mature floral which is very commonplace and for day to day use..

I applied 6 heavy sprays

0 - 2 hours. 1.5 foot projection. Strong floral which is very common place and perhaps as generic as it gets. There is nothing that stands out, very safe bet. I would personally get very boored of this very quickly. Ages 43-58

2 hours - 4 hours - 10 inch projection. Strong, linear

4-5 hours - 4 inch projection

4 hours - 6 hours. 1-2 inch projection. Occasional wafts up to 5 inches

6-9 hours. Close to skin

Its as if you want to say to this frag, "take a risk, gamble, live life in the fast lane"! Instead this is safe and should have been called "Estee Lauder Sensiblle Intense"

Oh wow, this is special. Peony is usually the goody-two-shoes kind of flower, very innocent and pink and lovely. This is a cute little pink peony, but with a lot of peppery sexiness! I could have sworn there were pink peppercorns in this one...it the perfect crossroad between lovely and sweet, yet deep, intense and sexy. Hot damn, Estee Lauder, never stop making this one!

Charming, rather light, but intensive very floral fragrance on the woody base!

Most of all this fragrance smells peonies and lilies (also green lilies). These floral notes are very intensive. Mixed with the cassia note this floral bouquet smells fascinating. But there is also a very noticeable maple wood base in this fragrance. And I don't like it. As for me, I think that this maple wood note spoils the floral beauty of this fragrance. Maybe at the same time this note makes this fragrance more serious, but I wish it was maybe just less noticeable.

Anyway, I like this fragrance because of its bright floral bouquet, and especially because of the lilies notes.

Lilacs, pinks, lilies. This perfume lasts forever on me and I get some very poetic compliments on it. :) Two women actually followed me through a flower nursery trying to figure out which flower gave off such a "beautiful soft scent". One girl said I smelled like a summer morning. It is perfect for spring but when I need a burst of sunshine I spritz it on in the dead of winter.

Spraying this on, I get a heavenly blast of dewy, fresh, crisp flowers. Velvety fragrant petals, delicate leaves, and firm green stems. Pleasures Intense is the most intensive, realistic “bouquet of flowers” scent I have smelled yet. It is lush, green, moist, sweet, and all-around luscious. You get the natural sweetness of fresh flowers, but nothing cloying. Peonies and green lilies are the strongest notes by far. This perfume reminds me of being in a greenhouse full of fresh plants and flowers. It has that wonderful “humid” scent that a greenhouse has. It’s like putting your face right into a patch of spring flowers, while the morning dew is still hanging off the petals. All of this is a great experience.

The only thing that keeps me from classifying this as a “love” is the drydown. After Pleasures Intense has been on for a couple of hours, the florals disappear completely and the scent morphs into a soft, clean, fresh laundry scent. Certainly not a bad thing, but not something I enjoy. Although I get a hint of smooth sweetness from the vanilla, I don’t pick up on the styrax or maple at all. If only those gorgeous flowers stayed around! As it is, the drydown is just too bland to me.

All in all, this is a lovely fragrance. I would highly recommend trying it out, especially if you enjoy or don’t mind that “clean laundry musk” type of drydown.

I think this fragrance is gorgeous and I don't find it too intense or heavy at all. Creamy, lovely, elegant floral. ( and i'm not a floral lover)
It is similar to the big sister Pleasures, only deeper and more caracteristic.
I don't really know how maple should smell but the drydown is my favourite part, so sexy and womanly.
I recommend it under 25 °C.

Judging by the reviews, this must be another like it or hate it--and I hate it.

Just thinking about it is repulsive. It is strong, cloying, shriekish, and a one-dimentional disaster that doesn't quit.

It really reminds me of having a nice breakfast bridal shower--a bunch of women exuding (cheap) floral perfume while eating french toast and sausage dripping in syrup. **Shudder**

I had a bottle of this and tried it several times. It's intense all right...

This is so beautiful! I have an animal friendly roll-on oil from a lovely seller online,she makes gorgeous designer replicas.

This is very sweet,and I love it so much. It is very floral as one would guess. I am getting a strong heady lilac,even though no one here has listed it as a note. I also sense slightly,roses and peony.

I am thinking that the maple is what amps up the flowers,and makes them "intense". This is very strong,very potent to my senses. I have not found the resins yet,but they could very well be blended in such a flawless way,as to further sing out the flower notes.

I find this somehow powerful and delicate at the same time. I find it very unique,and utterly gorgeous. It is very sweet,and I feel like I happily fell asleep in a thick, dewy flower garden.

I really liked this scent the first time I smelt it. Pleasures Intense is one funky perfume (must be the maple) -- but I really like it. When I spray it on in the morning and come back later, the whole room smells heavenly. I can only hope that I smell as good when wearing it.

I don't own this and unless someone gets it for me as a very nice gift :) I probably won't be buying it. That isn't because it isn't lovely but rather because I have a super long WANT list and to be honest I tend to tire of florals easily. Still I wanted to add a review because in the last few months I have complimented three ladies on their perfume and turns out this was it! One person had actually mixed this with regular pleasures and although it was strong with alot of sillage...it was really nice. Worth stopping a stranger and asking what perfume she had on. Years ago the original pleasures was my Mom and Sister's favorite perfume but I wasn't "in love" with it. Still, out of curiosity, I went to the store recently to sniff Pleasures and Pleasures Intense and found that they are nice smelling. I liked Intense more though.

I do adore the Pleasures range, Exotic being my best loved choice of them, as it provides a good set of delightful and fresh florals. Intense lives up to its title since it is quite bold and loud to be "just" a floral fragrance. A woman who wears it certainly won't be ignored because of Intense's exquisite notes of peony and other flowers. Extra kudos for the simple yet elegant bottle that pleases my sense and appreciation of graceful designs. They're both kinda timeless, the bottle and its contents.

I smelled this tonight on implulse as I walked by the EL counter. I am a real fan of the original Pleasures, so clean and fresh smelling. Well, I was hooked from the first spray. I think it was the Lily-of-the-Valley that got me...but then there is rose and vanilla and something oriental and sexy to it. My male friend who was with me said it was gorgeous and really "sweet" in a good way...Needless to say I bought a bottle home with me and can't wait to wear it now in the heart of summer. So feminine and floral.

I bought this one a while ago and as much as I liked it at the store, I hated it at home. It was so strong, and gave me terrible headaches. I felt like I got a bugspray poisoning.
Luckily, the kind saleswoman replaced it for me even though I opened it.
Lesson learned - allways try for 24 h before you buy.

note: Strangely, it doesn't smell bad on other people.

strangely enough, this smells to me like sweet pea, more sweet pea, and sweet pea only.. which I cannot find on the list of notes at all.. my body chemistry must be playing tricks on me there :)) but I love the fragrant beauty of sweet pea, so I certainly don't mind having it bottled ..
it's worth mentioning that this is the only member of the Pleasures family that I like - all the others are either too bland or too fruity to my nose..

There is something about Estee Lauder fragrances that don't quite agree with my chemistry.

Pleasures Intense is fresh, flowery and certainly pleasant, but it is one of those scents that I'd imagine one to tire of quickly.

The opening turned rather bitter on my skin and was actually quite heavy and sticky. I disliked being shrouded in a cloud of this when I had only applied a small squirt to my wrist.

The heart of Pleasures Intense was a warmer yet smoother blend of florals, with the lily and jasmine creating that all too familiar 'bouquet of flowers' type of smell.

This isn't the type of fragrance that you would wear if you were to impress someone, especially the opposite sex. Pleasures Intense is more like the scent you would wear on a Summer's day while out walking the dog, sitting drinking cups of tea or digging around in the garden.

My advice, if you don't like heavy florals, stay away from this one.

On my skin turns to heavy oriental; intriguing blend of vanilla, maple and peony.
Tender and a bit difficult at the same time. I was rarely in the mood for this fragrance but I still think it's unusual and beautiful interpretation of peony, actually can not remember similar perfume. Unique, intense as the name says, retained on my skin for about 8 hours. I still prefer Pleasures, so fresh and inspiring throughout the day.
edit/ still missing that maple syrup aroma in dry down with velvet peony, lovely, unforgettable!

A strong floral, my first impression wasn't good, something like bugspray, but after a minute unveils a rich floral environment. Lasting power persistent, caracteristic of almost all Lauder fragrances. Don't get disappointed from the first sniff. It's a beautiful peony fragrance with a shy, playful, semi-hidden oriental aspect. Could be your "can't be without" perfume without noticing it. 13-10-09

Luckily in this one there aren't much blackcurrants. I mostly feel lily and ylang ylang and peonies. There's also something woody that reminds me maple 'flowers' or whatever.. This one is very floral and quite light to be worn at summer. For me it's quite special because of unusual for me maple smell in it. The maple on me smells very leaf like and reminds me the smell of autumn especially after 2 hours. Sillage is best first hour then in kinda settles down, but not completely shy close to skin. Lasting power is average. While middle note phase I was walking home and thinking what exactly I have there I thought- it smells like exotic flowers. While flowers aren't so exotic if look at the notes, but that's anyway interesting. Bottle is nice (I like the color), but I think it should be colored reflecting maple leaf color in fall season, since it smells like it so much. Also I agree that it's not that intense as name states

when my mom got this, i was about 16. Somehow it made its way onto my dresser...and i doused myself in it daily. At the time, i just wanted A scent to call my own. Today, i consider it to be way too floral and fresh for my taste.

Juicy, bursting with sweet blackcurrants. Their intensity drowns out the floral notes (apropos the previous review, I personally can't smell any lily-of-the-valley at all!). The fruit note is so realistic that I can almost taste it, and kudos to Estee for that -- but the fragrance is too flat. If it had a melody, it would be moody and monotonous, in a minor key. Glum plum.

For me, this is the ultimate lily of the valley-fragrance. This is one my skin a juicy-fresh-tart sigle note of this flower, which lasts and lasts.
This is not a man-magnet on my skin, it rather brings me comlpiments from women, so I think it is a perfect fragrance when I want to earn sympathy, or for go shopping with friends. Not a scent for seduction, for me, even if I originally tought, that it will be something seductive. It whispers purity, freshness, nice-ness, a groomed feminity bottled. I think I should wear french manicure with swarovsky crystals and a peach-colured kashmere top, and so on, with this scent. Even if it doesn't attract men ( in my case), I like it. My best friends and my mom loves this scent on me, so I use it for them and for myself.

It is such an alluring scent. Smells like grapefruit and a touch of pepper in the beginning to me but not surprisingly there is none of these ingredients in the pyramid. The peony and lilly give the real cool elegancy of the scent, it's kind of bold and sexy elegance. The floral notes touch my nose so so delicately that I really feel like drinking a fresh juice !!! I am wearing it in winter and it makes me feel quite comfortable, optimistic and open-hearted.

It's quite strange, not necessarily in a bad way.

On my skin it smelled mostly like candied strawberries and flowers, which is not really my taste.

I tested this one and I like Pleasures Delight better. With that said, this one is ok but nothing special. Definitely better than beyond paradise, of course anything's better than b. paradise (yuk). I think that's the worst floral perfume I've ever smelled and the worst from Estee Lauder so far that I've tested.

Smells like peonies, like the original Pleasures, but there's something else in it that makes it smell. . . cooler? Is it the styrax?

I like it on the initial spray, and for about 2 hours afterwards, and then. . . had to wash it off. Too floral. And I'm just not a floral gal.

This is gorgeous. It's not as intense as its title. Infact, it's quite lovely and romantic. Remind me of J'adore of Dior, but not exactly the same. It doesn't smell like original pleasure at all. They should give another name for it. I'm getting bore with the bottle.
