Thread: Scent of Oger by Creed
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."
I think I would like this better than Aventus.
creed said they were doing an eau de cologne in the spring, perhaps this is the one.
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 ?
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.
Hmmm now how am I going to get a bottle of this short of flying to Europe...

Full review coming soon!
Grant, is this in the directory yet?
I;m going to give it a few more wearings before i write up a review:
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 !!!)
Very nice! Did you get these from Oger directly?
i heard it is similar to bois de cedrat. it was ok but it faded so fast on me, oh well. i wish i could sample this.
Hit me up on crystal flacon if you want a sample, David.
So Dullah, you went in BIG on a blind buy for this, didn't you? And it took less than a week (weekend included) to arrive? That's amazing.

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?
I have tried Eau de Guerlain and liked it quite a bit, I have not tried the others although I have been trying to make a point of Selection Verte as it sounds like something right up my alley
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. Check your PM's Philmcphe
