From the brand - "Prada launches Paradoxe Intense, a new flanker of the 2022 pillar, Paradoxe. The new edition is described as an extraordinary floral bouquet with the freshness of the neroli bud and jasmine superinfusion with ambrofix and serenolide. Prada Paradoxe Intense embodies an exuberant celebration of the unexpected, harmoniously balancing of strength with graceful delicacy."
Fragrantica - "once it sets on your skin (about 30-40 minutes in), OH MY GOD, this perfume is DIVINE! Long lasting, (I sprayed it at around 16 of the day before, and at 10 am the day after I still Smelled it strongly on my wrist, this Perfume is extremely long lasting, and 1 spray on my wrist was enough for me to smell it over the course of the entire day of yesterday. It moves with you, it leaves a trail, and it's gorgeous. It still has the normal paradoxe (of which I'm a fan of) DNA, but it's way sweeter and deep. Paradoxe 2022 is definitely my signature still, can be worn throughout all seasons and times of day, it's fresh and nice, Paradoxe Intense is a deeper, Nightly scent that would do amazing in colder climates."
Fragrantica - "This is gorgeous originally I thought I liked the OG better but after wearing it the intense is much more longer wearing still has that fresh fruity and enough sweetness but not sugary, the amber and vanilla give just enough and I love the neroli and earthy notes in the dry down I imagine this must be the moss note. It’s beautiful and I will be picking up a 50ml addictive dry down and juicy tart opening with lovely floral notes, will be my new signature."
Fragrantica - "I am utterly smitten by this perfume. I normally steer clear from sweet florals, I just don’t think they play well with the image I want to convey of myself to the world (and I, as many others here, trust perfume to do that). I want to transmit a strong feminine energy, don’t-f-with-me, smell me and think about that scent the rest of the day kind of deal. This is everything I wasn’t supposed to like. But I love it. It’s all of the above. It’s strong yet sweet, floral yet amber-y, not offensive yet incredible sillage. The OG blend smells completely bland to me, but this verges on what I’d smell from a niche perfume house. If you don’t like it, but don’t hate it either, give it a shot. It develops really interestingly. If it’s something that appeals to you, men have stopped me several times on the street and asked what perfume I was wearing. One even described it as “bewitching” and I think it sums this up perfectly. 10/10."
