Solo Loewe Eau de Cologne Intense Loewe for men Pictures

Solo Loewe Eau de Cologne Intense is a perfume dedicated to the new age, to a man that leads a dynamic life and searches for a perfect balance between tradition and modern happenings. The fragrance opens with notes of thyme, guava and lavender, followed by cashmere, patchouli and Costus, and then they are replaced by melon, lemon and mandarin, leading to the base of green pepper, cinnamon and cumin. This is a special perfume and its composition is not the classic olfactive pyramid (that is the case with the Solo Loewe first perfume also). It is based on the originality concept; it leaves a mark of tough personality mixed with freshness that leads to the harmony of contrasts. The bottle is formed as a see-through prism, with a metal silver stopper, cool and blue. This design associates with the Spanish “key” – it represents a balance of modernity and tranquility. Solo Loewe Eau de Cologne Intense was launched in 2008.

Perfume rating: 3.78 out of 5 with 95 votes.

Solo Loewe Eau de Cologne Intense Fragrance Reviews

Jose Marcos

There is a reason I stayed away from the Solo family for so long: the smell of guava. In Brazil we say that if you leave one guava in the fridge you will have to change it next day, the fridge, I mean. The smell won't desappeare, never. But I was looking for scents with lavender and came across these Loewe fragrances.

Yes, there is the guava, but it is the leaves and not the fruit. It is strong but fresh and gree and a bit arid/earthy. The citrus note is very suave, faint. The lavender is a marvellous smell from start to finish. Ant there is also an amber-ish/woody base. all these factors make Solo Eau de cologne Concentree a very masculine smell. And it lasts, and it lasts ... just like an EDT would.

Solo Absoluto is more robust, thickier, sweeter, but shares the DNA fo Solo Eau de Cologne. Iwill get the Solo original by next week and I am hoping for a much full body version of the EDCC. Fingers crossed.

It's very easy to say that this EDCC is an atempt to create a very modern eau de cologne, almost as Gucci did early 2000 launching a barbershop scent encarnated in River Gauche. Here we have an eau de cologne as close to the original as possible: citrus-aromatic-lightwood. The guava leaf doesn't add much change in the formula. What's new is this EDC duration, projection, stay power. I cannot image a situation in which Solo EDCC wouldn't be appropriated. Perhaps not too formal for evening big events. Maybe. For all these reason i can see why Solo family is not that popular, it does't trail the same path the modern metrossexual fragrances for men do these days. But on the other hand, fans of male classic scents will love this, specially because it doesn't smell dated, at all.

It lastS well over 12 hours on a hot and dry climate like mine.

One last thing: the opening is really chaotic, strange, almost bezarre. But wait about 30 min ...

After the great success obtained with Solo Loewe, the brand decided to create something fresher, a version for daytime and daily use, trying to keep the DNA and the note of guava, loved by some and unnoticed by others. Then, in 2008 (four years after the release of the original version), arose this blue version with gist of black sheep of the family.

This is a cologne with Eau de Cologne Intense concentration, i.e. they used the highest level of essence allowed for an EDC, in a composition full of high quality ingredients, and the result is a fragrance that behaves like an EDT (Eau de Toilette), in terms of projection and longevity.

It has notes of thyme, lavender and guava, on top; Cashmere wood, patchouli, Costus (known in Brazil as cana-do-brejo or periná), melon, lemon and Mandarin, in the heart; Green pepper, cinnamon and cumin (not caraway), in the base.
The company employed high quality materials in this Solo line and the result is a scent that had everything to be generic, fresh-fruity and aromatic type, but, on the other hand, is usually surprising.

The output is, in my opinion, the best part and the closest to the original fragrance. I love the way the guava blends to the herbal aspect of thyme. The most common stage of evolution is when the melon note appears, making the aroma similar to that of so many other creations that have the same note (like Polo Blue, for example). So, what could have been a fresher version of Solo Loewe, turns into a typical "blue" fragrance. What saves it is the base, spicy and warm, which gives a more aromatic tone.

Personally, I didn't understand the concept. I think it would have been easier if it had been made in EDT concentration and had been called Solo Loewe Fresh (or Aqua). The name would be smaller and would avoid confusion, since many do not point to the fact that it is an EDC and it ends up generating some disappointments. But what matters is that pleases who knows it and is an excellent choice for everyday use. In this respect, does not disappoint.

I think that all Loewe fragrances are overpriced, but not overrated. This seems harsh and musty when first sprayed on, most Loewe scents give me that initial impression, but then it dries down to a lovely fruit and fresh bouquet on a luxurious base. It does not project well, nor does it last long, so that would make it ideal for a situation or occasion where subtlety is the objective. A very nice and refined creation.

a good summer fragrance.... probably my next purchase... hehehe...
the reason why they tag the name INTENSE here is the frag is an eau de cologne that has lasting sillage and longevity... usually, colognes only last for about 4hr with low sillage.... hence, the word INTENSE attached to the name of this LOEWE frag... it was not meant to be a heavy scent than the original...

Well it is a kind of ordinary fresh masculine fragrance. i would categorize it as wood/aquatic. starts with lots of citruses and a bit of spicyness, then slowly evolves into aromatic/floral midtones. the drydown is quiet light, its like aromatic/aquatic with woodsy notes in th background, it stays close to the skin and i like the drydown to me it is smooth and calm, maybe romantic. overall not a bad fragrance. nothing's particular about the bottle. but one thing i want to tell though its Edc yet it has got good silage and longevity and projection is not that bad. it is a versatile fragrance u can wear it in any ocassion at any time.
I give it 7.5 out of 10.

This EDC has a slight resemblance to the original. It has notes of entry similar to the Solo by Loewe, its base notes are cooler and not so loaded with spices like the original, tending a little evocation of aquatic notes. Its base notes are less sweet than the original. It's like a mix of solo and Agua de Loewe Él.

This Intense EDC is so much like setting a EDT. Its atmosphere is suitable for warm weather, perfect for nights out. Like Solo, is not recommended for teens. No power for a romantic fragrance as Solo, but can draw attention.

Fresh and ozonic. This is what I'm after for loewe brand, apart from agua de loewe el. It will be next purchase. Haven't really tested yet but I guess this would be just fine for daily use, night or day.

WHY INTENSE?
It's a softer revision of the original "Solo" but this time it's more arid with the increment of lavender.
Long lasting is mediocre though!.
