Colin Farrell For Dolce & Gabbana Intenso Fragrance Campaign

After much anticipation here is the new campaign for Dolce & Gabbana’s new fragrance Intenso with Colin Farrell.


“Sincerity is the key of the Dolce&Gabbana man’s elegance. He’s strong, yet he is also able to reveal his frailties. He is handsome, modern and full of life, just like Intenso, the fragrance that we dedicate to him.” Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana

Intenso is elegant and pure. It is the iconic signature of contemporary man. Intenso is a woody aromatic fragrance that opens with luminous Aquatic notes and green accents of Basil and Lavender. Its profound appeal is defined by a brand new discovery in the olfactory world: the Moepel accord, which has been re-created from the flowers and leaves of the Milkwood tree using Headspace technology.


Used for the very first time in perfumery, the Moepel accord is the key signature of Intenso. The Moepel or Milkwood is a tree which grows in South Africa whose odour is totally unique, extremely sensual and incredibly rich. The name derives from the latex the tree contains.

The accord has been obtained using the Headspace technology, which captures and recreates the combination of both the flowers and the leaves of this incredibly majestic tree. It is a new sensual, almost animalic note with floral, balsamic and rich honey accents which drive a uniquely modern interpretation of the classic tobacco

Head notes: Basil, Aquatic notes, Marigold, Geranium

Heart notes: Lavender, Absolutes of Bran and Hay, Clary Sage, Cypress

Base notes: Sandalwood, Musky notes, Ambery notes, Moepel accord, Labdanum

Intenso marks and celebrates its ties with Pour Homme by mirroring the iconic lines of its packaging., with its curved silhouette and cylindrical copper cap, is refreshed in a dark tobacco brown lacquered glass, embossed with the Dolce&Gabbana logo in an elegant copper shade.

Irish actor Colin Farrell portrays the character of Intenso in his first collaboration with Dolce&Gabbana Fragrances.

“Colin epitomises all aspects of the Intenso man. His physicality is commanding and his eyes have depth and are full of life. As an actor and man, he perfectly represents strength, tenderness and allure, the qualities that we envisioned for the male of our new fragrance.” Domenico Dolce Intenso’s print campaign is set in front of dark, imposing volcanic rocks. Colin gazes straight ahead, his eyes fierce yet gentle.

He is dressed in a simple white T-shirt, rugged at the seams. This is the story of the Intenso man in a harmonious environment, amongst warm, natural shades of black and brown. Behind the lens is the American photographer Mark Seliger, known for his elegant, intimate yet stunning portraits of film and music stars.
