    Default Unleash the Fury of Furyo

    Bought this one blind and boy, does it ever pack a punch. The reviews don't do it justice. Further, it's the closest to Nag Champa incense I've ever smelled. Yes, this is an incense frag if there ever was one. Forget your Lutens and CdG incense. This is animalic incense to be precise. The temple that houses a brothel if you will. Unlike anything else on the market. While I find most Bogart frags to be unique and of great quality, Furyo is perhaps their best. And it has plenty of the banned stuff - castoreum & civet.

    Tabu is a civet masterpiece. I like it a lot more than Ungaro II, and it can be had on ebay for a reasonable price if you are patient. I suggest getting this kind of bottle:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/TABU-PERFUME-COL...item5642c21f23

    I have a few small bottles that are really old, but the fragrance in this bottle is the best, in terms of being complex and with no "roughness," but plenty of civet. Definitely unisex by today's niche standards too.

    This one is a monster.
    I can easily grab Bijan, Kouros or any other loud POWERhouse, and wear it liberally without shame or feeling uncomfortable.

    But this thing is frightening. It eclipses anything I have smelled in terms of sillage. Completely destroys them.

    It's the only thing that causes me to second guess myself if im in company.

    IS there a different bottle/box for the 'vintage version'?

    What is needed is a pic of the bottle and/or box in an ad dated in 1988 or thereabouts.

    I was going to dismiss this thread but decided I had better look at my bottles before replying.

    I have been under the impression that Furyo was never reformulated. I thought it had been discontinued quite a few years ago, and that it just wasn't around long enough to warrant reformulation.

    But the photo provided by pk116 is rather disturbing. That type of detailed ingredient list is something you generally see on recent frags, not on vintage bottles. For example, my two bottles of Furyo state simply that the ingredients are SD alcohol, fragrance and water.

    Both my bottles are parts of sets containing the EDT, after-shave, deodorant, and soap. The ingredients for all the products are listed separately on the box containing the set. There are no individual boxes for each of the products.

    It appears that my bottle is the vintage. It has 85% Vol between the 3.33 fl oz and the 100ml. I guess that's the way to tell them apart.

    pk116 was kind enough to send me samples of original and reformulated Furyo. The original juice is darker in color and ( as cliched as this sounds) is richer and deeper in aroma. I don't think the reformulated version is terrible, but standing toe to toe with the original, it comes in a distant 2nd.

    With that said, I can't help but notice a strong resemblance to Arabian nights.

    My bottle makes a great air freshener. I find sweet incense like that hard to wear tho. It's the only truly "one spray" frag I own. And it has to be to the back of my head or walking through the spray -- one spray to the chest and I'm choking on musky nag champa for the next 15 hours.

    I have a mini up for swap too, feel free to PM me synthetic.

    Nag Champa in a bottle. But it opens up and the other notes come through. I get a ton of Rose and Patchouli out of this once the opening calms down.

    I wanted to contribute in respect to this thread. Manicboy mentions a key aspect to distinguishing Vintage from the reformulation - "85% Vol" is on both box and bottle, in between "3.33 FL OZ" and "100 ML". On the back of the Vintage box, the listed ingredients are "ALCOHOL PARFUM EAU" in French and underneath in English, "SD ALCOHOL 39 C - FRAGRANCE - WATER".

    I have a tremendous amount of respect for this wonderful creation from a bygone era. The civet is wonderfully integrated and the Nag Champa incense note is surreal.

    The scent pyramid on Basenotes, I believe, is very close to correct:

    Top Notes
    Lavender, Artemisia, Coriander, Bergamot

    Middle Notes
    Jasmine, Geranium, Rose, Cinnamon

    Base Notes
    Civet, Amber, Vetiver, Patchouli

    I find the notes of Nag Champa incense to be a complete accord from the composition. Therefore, I don't think it would be apropos to list "Incense" or Nag Champa as a true 'note'...it is how the harmony comes together and it forms an incredibly rich aroma that is sublime and very, very close to Nag Champa. This is not meant to be a review - only an addition to a thread, and a helpful one.

    I will not pursue reformulated Furyo as I have been truly Blessed to find Vintage juice, in perfect shape! While in a full wearing of Vintage Zino Davidoff, I put one small spray of Furyo on my forearm - and it is mind-blowing. While Zino has its signature dirty rose and patchouli with incense plumes swirling through its composition, Furyo is incredible! I am looking for smoke as it radiates up to my nose. My scent of the day (rich Original Zino) is a near masterpiece. So...where does that leave Furyo?

    In another dimension, perhaps.

    Cheers.

    I really, really like Zino and consider it an absolute classic. Furyo has far less of those aromatic ingredients you see in the pyramid. There is a slight development as the top notes burn off after 15 minutes, but it's basically linear after that for the next 12+ hours: an accord of very sweet incense, civet, honey, and musk that just goes and goes. Much sweeter and way more incensey than Zino. I don't really get "incense" from Zino, more the classic perfumery ingredients in its pyramid.

    I never really noticed much relation between the two.

    Hi MonkeyBars -

    I like some of what you said here, but I wasn't comparing the two scents. It was just the pure shock (and admiration) of how powerful Furyo is while wearing Original Zino. Sure, they share some notes - but I don't even put them in the same realm of scent.

    Zino is a classic and Original formulation is a near masterpiece. The incense vibe I get in Original Zino comes in the dry down with the vanilla offering a bit of a powdery vibe and blending with the sandalwood and smoky patchouli. It is rather wonderful - truly an accord I get, as there is no incense as a note. Many get it...both trained and untrained noses. The dirty rose in the heart creates the mystery and adds even more dimension to the classic it is.

    Furyo is not as "sweet" to my nose. It has a wealth of patchouli, amber, civet and vetiver in the base that is incredible with the rose, cinnamon and other florals in the heart. I agree that there is not a lot of movement in the scent after the first hour or so...but, it is how the top notes fade and also blend. It is incredibly rich and that is what I compared - sheer power - to Original Zino. As I said, some notes are similar, but I don't even believe in comparing scents unless they are different formulations of the same fragrance or flankers that share notes and you can understand what the perfumer tried to differentiate and articulate in a bottle next to the flagship...

    This is a whole different world.

    Great contributions here - Furyo is truly, to me, an incredible scent. I put aside comparisons of it to anything, including Kouros. It is unto itself a work of art in Vintage formulation.

    Cheers,

    ericrico

    Another great animalic incense scent is vintage Rumba (make sure it says Balenciaga and not Lapidus on the bottle). This one can still be had for $30 or so on ebay if you are patient, but some sellers are selling the Lapidus with a pic of the Balenciaga so be careful. Totally unisex if you like florals and wait for the top notes to subside.
