Fragrant Friday - Tiffany & Co. Intense

Tiffany & Co. introduces a richer and deeper version of their signature fragrance:

Tiffany & Co. Intense - 30ml EDP - $90, 50ml EDP - $130, 75ml EDP - $160 -  a musky floral fragrance that echoes facets of the original composition with top notes of verte de mandarine and pink peppercorn; a heart of noble iris; and
base notes of amber and vanilla-like benzoin.

Compared to the original it's similar yet very different, I love the citrusy top note and it dries down to smell warm and a little sweet - a beautiful winter fragrance and of course the bottle is beautiful!

Available now at Hudson's Bay stores (including the fῡme scent lounge at Yorkdale) and Shoppers Drug Mart Beauty Boutiques across Canada.
