I've always been a fan of Victoria's Secret and PINK fragrances and lotions; my favorites are sweet smelling, and come in an array of small bottles that I can tuck into my bag and take anywhere with me. They're usually pretty affordable when you the smaller sizes, which lets you try a bunch of different scents and mix it up. This one was a splurge, being a large glass bottle of perfume and the lotion to match. According to Victoria's Secret, Intense is a warm fragrance with notes of salted praline coconut, sueded musks and plum noir. In english, I would compare this to the Pure Seduction scent, but with less fruity notes. I find it really wearable with some good staying power, but also not overpowering and super strong, despite the name. The packaging for the perfume is killer, with a pretty tassel and fluted bottle. The packaging on the lotion is a little less great, with an ombré bottle and gold lettering. While I'm sure that you aren't buying this product purely for the packaging, I'm a little obsessed with these small details. I leave them on my desk all the time, so they have to be pretty.
The fragrance lotion leaves something to be desired for me, its a bit thin and doesn't match the scent of the perfume exactly. Its given me a headache on more than one occasion, so it doesn't get as much wear as the perfume for obvious reasons.
Overall, I would suggest the perfume, but might caution on the purchase of the lotion for those searching for a new scent.
