Bogart pour Homme.
Another of the truly great values from this House and another gem from Maurice Roucel (Musc Ravaguer, etc.).
A tonka overload for sure but along with the other pyramid notes it all comes out to a fruity cherry pipe tobacco blend. Why overthink it, I say.
Bogart does not make weak fragrances and this one is no different. Watch the sprays.
I would not wear it in a serious business environment. Good for evenings, the weekend, and informal settings, especially in Autumn.

My Initial thoughts on this fragrance were a bit wrong, this is rather a powerful fragrance with high silage and great longevity.
What I smell mostly is loads of Tonka Bean and Tobacco with a rose note in the background.
The only thing I don't like about this fragrance is the Rose note, I find it makes it cloying and nauseating at times.
A nice fragrance that reminds me of "The Dreamer" minus the iris note.
What I mostly pickup from the silage of this is Vanilla and Tobacco with a little floral at the background.
I found that the longevity and silage of this to the overhyped by others, this is no where near in the same power class as Le Male,Amen,Antaeus...ect. On me skin it lasted 6 hours with average silage.

A masculine woody tobacco scent with an evocatively warm presence.
The beginning is a pretty sharp bergamot rush that fades behind a warm curtain of tonka and lavender and a dash of florals humming in the background. The first hour of the drydown is to die for as the aroma fades into a bitter and fresh tobacco accord that plays around with the fading middle notes.
The only letdown for me is the stage before fading (6 hours in) that is kind of a generic vanilla/tonka bean skin scent. But the ride getting there is great. Currently my cold weather signature scent.
This kinda reminds me of Rochas Man but without the sweetness. If Rochas Man is about finding romance in naivety, Bogart pour homme is about finding the naivety in romance. (Lol) The final stage drydowns on both are kind of similar to my nose.
Longevity: 5-8 hours on my skin

Bogart pour Homme is an interesting fragrance. Upon deployment I get fresh cherry pipe tobacco in a leather pouch balanced with a medicinal note akin to surgical spirit. Root beer in the background with an artificial trace similar to fresh plasticine. I like it alot! Pricewise very good indeed, robust in longevity, projection and sillage, nice bottle design, reliable sprayer, a bold opening that calms to a prodigious drydown. I believe this Jacques Bogart product is one of the best value for money fragrances I've ever encountered.
A charismatic scent with a touch of vanity for the mature man that enjoys luxury.a fragrance of intense sensations.it has a great balance of warm spice and wood notes.at this price,it is so tempting Sweet, Woody,Versatile,Masculine,Charming and Elegant.
The first note is a rush of freshness from bergamot, shifting up a gear with dashes of Lavender and rose.The sumptuous warmth of sheer toonka bean and skin musk blended with blonde woods exudes to evoke the ardent vitality of a brave Perfume that brims with absolute masculinity.
Longevity?+8 hours on my skin.
