Well with Blush being in my top picks of 2005, and one of my favorite perfumes, I was really anxious for this release. I snagged the first bottle I saw on eBay, as far as I know it has not been released in the USA yet. When the package came, I anxiously tore open the box. The bottle is the same but the cap is black and as you can see in the picture it says "intense" in black writing on the bottle. So I sprayed it on. Hummm nice, but different? I sprayed my other arm with unleaded Blush. Hummm. Ok, no real difference, but maybe this one lasts longer or is different in the drydown. Ummmm. No. Ok, so I thought, I have been sick, I need to test again. So here I am this morning. And I have to tell you, not much difference to my nose. No bergamot in the opening and ever so slightly richer and less airy. So the bottom line is - It's too slight of a difference, and it is not by any definition "intense", just slightly modified. Actually I prefer the original. I love bergamot and the slightly more airy feel of it.
Below I have listed notes for comparison from Osmoz. I would like to add that I don't see as many "accord" notes listed in the original Blush as I remember reading from Sephora. (Blush is not listed there now) I remember Jasmine Breeze Accord & Fresh Air Accord.
