Beauty News: Dolce&Gabbana INTENSO, a modern reinterpretation of the elegant and vibrant man, accentuating his character and depth

Twenty years have passed since the launch of Pour Homme, Dolce&Gabbana’s first male fragrance and the personification of the Dolce&Gabbana man through scent. Elegant and vibrant.

Today Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana present a modern reinterpretation of this man, accentuating his character and depth with the new fragrance Intenso.

Dolce&Gabbana Colin Farrell INTENSO Ad Campaign
Intenso is pure instinct, the power of an emotion that is freely expressed. It is the force of a determined man, with a heart that is rooted in tradition,yet revels in the modern world. Intenso ideally represents the new generation of Dolce&Gabbana men, who live in the present and express their emotions with abandon and intensity.

The Fragrance

Intenso is a woody aromatic fragrance that opens with luminous Aquatic notes and green accents of Basiland Lavender. Its profound appeal is defined by a brand new discovery in the olfactory world: the Moepel accord, which has been re-created from the flowers and leaves of the Milkwood tree using head-space technology. The Moepel accord gives the signature and character to the heart and base, enveloping it with luxurious floral, balsamic, and honey accents. The tobacco masculinity is further defined with soft dry notes from Absolutes of Hay and Bran.

Intensity and strength come from the profound combination Labdanum, Sandalwood and Cypress. A contrast of fresh, warm and rich, that completes the composition of the fragrance and emphasizes its woody charm. Intenso is elegant and pure. It is the iconic signature of contemporary man.

Head notes: Basil, Aquatic notes, Marigold, Geranium.
Heart notes: Lavender, Absolutes of Bran and Hay, Clary Sage, Cypress.
Base notes: Sandalwood, Musky notes, Ambery notes, Moepel accord, Labdanum.

COLIN FARELL the face for Dolce&Gabbana INTENSO

The testimonial: Colin Farrell

Irish actor Colin Farrell portrays the character of Intenso in his first collaboration with Dolce&Gabbana Fragrances.

“Colin epitomises all aspects of the Intenso man. His physicality is commanding and his eyes have depth and are full of life. As an actor and man, he perfectly represents strength, tenderness and allure, the qualities that we envisioned for the male of our new fragrance.”
