    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!"

    Especially since the article was posted in 2007... I haven't spotted this at Oger here in Amsterdam; 200 bottles would have sold out long ago.

    You're welcome. So bad I missed it.. if only I would have known. But didn't even know the name of Creed back then.

    Oh, btw, my definition of a perfect WR is: Everything you like, nothing you dislike, and too much you don't have

    This is the ultimate bait for the Creed collector! At the very least, it needs to go into the directory, even if we have to wait years for a review....

    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.

    My question is this: wouldn't a Dutch retailer have labels in Dutch if it were made especially for them?

    Maybe Oger Lusink is an anglophile ?

    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...)

    Perfume labels in Dutch wouldn't look "sophisticated" enough.

    They'd be sophisticated enough, it's the "hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh" sound that would be difficult for others to pronounce

    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).

    I must've not registered it, or it wasn't in plain sight when I last checked... Guess it's time for a walk over to Oger soon!

    So it is still available? Hmm, surprising! Maybe someone should host a split.

    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.

    Yeah, if I want a salty feminine, I'll just buy actual Annick Goutal and be done with it.

    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.
