Tiffany & Co. Intense is a new take on the original signature scent from the world-famous jewellery brand.

Intense echoes the original with a richer concentration of iris butter wrapped in cosy, sensual notes of amber and warm vanilla. The increase in the iris note gives the fragrance depth, but for a winter scent it’s cocooning and soothing.

The EDP is housed in glass a deeper shade of the trademark Tiffany blue and shaped with their iconic diamond cuts.
