    Default Scent of Oger by Creed

    Anyone ever smelled this rare one? I'll translate it from Dutch:

    "Geef hem eens ongelijk. Nederlands topretailer voor het exclusieve mannenpak presenteert volgende week maandag zijn eerste eigen geur 'Scent of Oger'. Oger Lusink heeft hem door niets minder dat het prachtige Engelse parfumhuis Creed heeft laten ontwikkelen. Twee jaar is er aan gewerkt en het resultaat is een warme, frisse geur met citrus en de bekende Oger-potpourri. De naam is een verwijzing naar de film 'Scent of a woman' met Al Pacino. Voor Oger op en top Italie. De geur zal in een oplage van 200 stuks in zijn winkels te koop zijn voor 260 euro. Maar van dat bedrag zal de gemiddelde Oger-klant zeker niet wakker liggen. Ik meld me weer als ik hem volgende week geroken heb!"

    "Tell him he's dissimilar. Next Monday Dutch top retailer for the exclusive men's suit will present it's first fragrance called "scent of Oger". Oger Lusink had it developed specifically by the beautifull English perfume house Creed. It took two years to develop the warm, fresh scent with citrus and "oger-potpourri". The refers to the movie 'scent of a woman' with Al Pacino. This scene, for Oger, rescembles the paragon of Italy. The scent will come in a limited amount of 200 bottles only available at his shop, at the cost of 260 euros (295 $). But thats not an amount of money to keep the average Oger costumer awake at night. I'll report back when I've smelled it next week!"

    You could go to the shop if it's nearby & inquire. You never know, they still might have a bottle considering it's not relatively known.

    To be honest, sounds like a fake. Has Creed ever mentioned this? I probably could Photoshop the bottle label myself. Someone should email this to Creeds Press Rep and ask.

    I think a lot of Creed's charm is that to the French, they seem English, and to the English they seem a bit French. Dutch would merely confuse the issue. (or, more likely, seem like a deviation from Creed tradition...)

    No, I'm serious. The use of English vs. Dutch in advertising slogans (and a perfume label is a kind of advertising slogan) is actually quite interesting. Any longer advertising content that is meant to be informational is usually Dutch. However, the slogan is often English, so you get English heading/slogan + Dutch text.

    I think it works something like this: English slogan implies "sophisticated/international/with-the-times". Dutch slogan implies "trustworthy neighbour". So it depends on the kind of product or service that you are advertising which language you will choose for your slogan. And a perfume label, especially from a company like Creed, falls squarely in the "sophisticated/international" spectrum.

    It's real. Oger carries part of the Creed collection in their store. They had Creed develop an exclusive fragrance to celebrate the owner's 60th birthday, I believe. I don't think the fragrance was ever announced by Creed, as it was sold exclusively by Oger, with very limited availability. Alas, I have never smelled the actual scent.

    However, it's interesting to note that this is 'The first edition', which might hint at more editions being released somewhere in the future.

    Another article (in Dutch), found here, speculates that Scent of Oger resembles Annick Goutal's Eau de Monsieur, describing it as a crispy citrus scent with warm undertones.

    I can attest that it is real. I was in the Oger shop (P.C. Hooftstraat, Amsterdam) today and it was for sale there. The sales guy barely acknowledged my existence and was clearly not interested in dealing with me (not unexpectedly, as I was dressed in t-shirt and jeans) but I did learn from him that it costs €250 for 200 ml. They even had a bottle open for testing. I didn't try it, I'm not interested in this scent, but for those who are, you know where to go:

    Oger (Google Streetview link).

    If this stuff is even halfway good, do snag a sniff, if not a bottle. Even if I never smell the stuff, I'd love to read a good review. I've already submitted it to the missing fragrances list.

    I swung by Oger on the way home from work and sniffed the Scent of Oger. I got a light, citrusy/lemony eau de cologne. Very nice and refreshing with a bit of crisp greenery. There must be some florals too, but I can't pick anything out. It's definitely fleeting, like you'd expect from an edc, and seems very fitting to Oger's Italocentric style.

    I've only sniffed Millesime Imperiale quickly, but I'll make a point of comparing the two tomorrow...

    I think it's a really nice edc, but I would hesitate to spend a lot of money on such a fleeting fragrance.

    OTOH, if it's anything like Santal Imperial, the fleeting EDC-ish top could hide a restrained but beautiful base, that many would find quite worthy. It will be important to see how it dries down. For me, Santal Imperial is best in the first 15 minutes, and then again at about 6-8 hours.

    Good luck with your comparison!

    For information, one of the comments at the link reports:

    "De geur is inderdaad aan de zware citrus kant maar wordt enkele minuten later nadat de alcohol weggetrokken is warmer en dan komt de Oger potpouri geur naarboven."

    "The scent is indeed on the heavy citrus side, but after a few minutes, when the alcohol is gone, becomes warmer and then the Oger potpourri comes to the front."

    Yeah, this was the first thing that came to mind when I was clicking the title, thinking it was a hoax thread.

    And until today, I had no idea how to even pronounce "Oger", i was saying it like the Belch contestant. When I called Oger Amsterdam today, I wasn't sure how to say it still, but right on their intro, the automated voice thankfully said it:

    "Oh-shjay" (please JaimeB come save/fix my Umlaut and Schwa!)

    And the gentleman that assisted me told me a little of the details and history of it, and stated it is indeed declared a millesime concentration, which is a sort of mid-ground between eau de toilette and eau de parfum (as we all know).

    I'm very interested in this scent, but really don't want to get my hopes up just yet, as I know Creed has excellent italian citruses, but I've never smelled Oger's "warm/hot" Potpourri, that this scent was originally based entirely off of. Apparently, the Italian Citruses were an add-on due to the Lusink father and son feeling it needed something more. It originally had slim/none citrus when Olivier and Erwin presented it to the Lusinks.

    Has anyone here smelled the Oger Potpourri ?
    It must be extrmely classy, given what I've seen of Oger's clothing and level of refined taste. but in translating some Dutch forums, some complained Oger Potpourri sometimes scents the whole block, weather depending. Is Oger's somehow majorly different from what we normally think of as Potpourri ?

    My main impression of Millésime Impérial is that it starts with sharp citrus, then comes melon and that "fuzzy" aquatic, slightly woody feeling so common in many men's fragrances during the past 15-20 years. It's a modern fragrance for men, and it's not bad if you happen to like this style. I don't.

    Scent of Oger feels much more natural. It has a softer and juicier citrus and almost life-like greenery. I would pick this one over MI with no hesitation.

    But here is what i detect so far:

    Italian Citruses: (Lemon, Orange, Bergamot), Artemesia, Cracked Red Pepper, Jasmine, Rose, Lavender, Immortelle, Juniper, Marjoram, Fennel Seed, Allspice/clove, Cypress, Cedar, Ambergris

    Lovers of Bois De Cedrat, Selection Verte and Bois Du Portugal I think will love Scent of Oger, as it prominently shares elements of all 3......as well as people who love immortelle and spices (it's literally HOT !!!)

    Yeah, Bois De Cedrat has terrible longevity, but a beautifully traditional citrus note. This has a stronger dose of what seems to the citrus of these 3: Bois De Cedrat/Selection Verte/Eau De Guerlain. And the heart and base are HOT!, floral/herbal, and woody.

    Hit me up on crystal flacon if you want a sample, David.

    I heard Citrus and crisp Greenery, as well as potpourri, and couldn't resist. It has now pushed a few of my other Citrus/green/SPICE/wood fragrances out of the rotation for the rest of autumn and early fall. Probably too light for Winter, but we'll see, the greens/spices/immortelle/woods may hold up better than I think in cold weather.

    Some of my favorite green fragrances are Vetiver Extraordinaire, GIT, and Vetyverio among others, some of my favorite wood/spice ones are BdP, Bois d'Orage, and Straight to Heaven. I feel it's worth mentioning these are by far my two favorite categories in fragrance too.

    Since you like Bois Du Portugal, you'll almost certainly like Scent of Oger's Drydown, which seems to contain a light helping of the Cedar/Lavender/Spice/Ambergris directly out of BdP, and thankfully none of it's powder. the remainder of the drydown is Immortelle/floral, and HOT spice, like Red pepper and Allspice.

    have you tried Bois De Cedrat, Eau De Guerlain, Imperiale Extra Dry, or Selection Verte?

    If you liked Eau De Guerlain's Lemon/Herbs, Scent of Oger's citrus/herbs are a much better version of that, qualitatively as good or better than the citrus notes in Bois De Cedrat and Selection Verte, but with a hot/spicy edge to it. it's extremely natural and green up top.
