Thread: 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.
Yes. The question is:
Who of the basenoters smelled this costum made scent?
Edit: Tott, I see a wardrobe of a person who's values i presumably truly love. From the bottom of my heart: Perfect WR
Wow, thank you!
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
I would love to get my hands on that evidence.
In which way? Do you doubt it's existence?
Edit again: As a Creed whore :P
Yes. Looks like a remake of Armani Pour Homme. And Bois de Cedrat
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....
I thought this was going to be about how Mike Myers smells.
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?
I think I know what it smells like...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P3-9ztGxMXQ (NSFW)
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.
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).
So it is still available? Hmm, surprising! Maybe someone should host a split.
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.
