A bold new modern-day interpretation of unforgettable ONE MAN SHOW.this one is a spark in the eyes,an intrepid smile that knows no fear and fears no one,an amused silence.this fragrance blends tradition and modernity.the nice balance and harmony of notes is both delicious and divine.it is fresher and less mature than the original. Powerfully Masculine, Intensely Charming, Interestingly Unpretentious and Incredibly Long Lasting.
This is a fresh aromatic/fougere blend with central lavender and clove shaped by notes of sharp apple, powdery violet,spices like cinnamon with a hint of anise along with obvious dominancy aromas of musk heated ambers whisper at the soul of the fragrance. this might be the perfect scent for a cold winter evening however i am not impressed with the scent.the fragrance has great price just like another's BOGART fragrances.
Longevity?Surprisingly Fantastic for a inexpensive fragrance.
Wearing this reminds me of the time I visited Louis Tussaud's Waxwork Museum in Copenhagen. In the Chamber of Horrors, there's an exhibit of a man in an electric chair. You get to throw the switch and watch the agonised contortions, accompanied by blood-curdling screams. Despite the horror, you find yourself throwing that switch over and over again. I have to be in the right mood to wear OMSG; a sort of 'Here's Johnny!' mood, minus the axe. There's certainly no hiding from this monster floral fruitchouli, even with a half-spritz. Magnificently awful.
This has to be one of the most potent fragrances I have ever encountered - even more than Amouage Gold which is a real nostril shredder at first.
OMS Gold Edition does warn you on the packaging that it is concentrated, they're not lying.
It is very floral at first and very sweet, which thankfully dies down.
What mystifies me is how the note pyramid lists nowhere the one accord that screams loudest in this which is patchouli. If I smelled this blind I would swear it was a patchouli bomb of the first order. I have no issue with this since I like patchouli, so it must be a conflation of cloves, amber and other notes conspiring to make me think patchouli.
Where this fragrance warrants a thumbs up however is the drydown which is lovely. A warm, woodsy (yes and patchouli feeling) base which reminds me very much of Lagerfeld Classic or Red for Men.
It lasts forever too.
Get through the opening and enjoy what is a very pleasant fragrance indeed.
After reading Journeyfan's review I can understand the horror of this fragrance. It is like a bad crash you don't want too look but something makes.
WOW! Arguably the most potent of all men's scents. Best to smell at a distance rather than close up. That said, this is a lovely frag - similar to Ted Lapidus Homme. It says "highly concentrated" on the box and they aren't joking!! Handle with care!!
I picked this up today from the local Sorting office and was with two work colleagues at the time. Both were intrigued when i pulled out this Fragrance and each requested a spray.
Bearing in mind this was a blind buy i told them i didn`t know what they could expect but being from Bogart it wouldmost likely be a strong powerful scent.
Well , i sprayed and i didnt get quite the reaction i hoped for. Two full Grown burly workers recoiled in Horror , coughing and spluttering and screaming expletives to the tune of What the XXXX is that ?? and imust admit i was saying the same thing.
It is the most overpowering .cloying opening i have ever experienced and i am afraid i don`t get the Fruity opening but a Strong Floral , the likes of which you expect from an elderly ladys scent and i would definitely say the opening is Feminine more than masculine.
I was very disappointed but as i told my colleagues there are different stages to a fragrance and they may be plesently surprised in a few hours when the other notes come through.
I sprayed once on the back of my hand and it was projecting like i have never known before which for the first hour or two is no good thing but i am pleased to say that as i write this it as been 3 Hours since spraying and it is a totally different Beast.
It is still very strong but the Floral as given way to a Woodsy , Spicey and definitely Masculine Scent and is very agreeable compared to the Harsh mess of an opening.
I have read a review on the net from someone who said this could still be smelt 50 hours after application and i have no doubt this is probably true because this is a nuclear experience from the start and throughout.
My summary would be that this is a fantastic long lasting powerful fragrance that you need to get the first couple of hours out of the way to experience it at its best.
One spray is enough , Two if your brave and more than that if you want to clear a room.
Another unbelievable affordable fragrance from Bogart.
