    Default Bogart One Man Show vs One Man Show Gold vs Riviera Nights

    I'm considering blind buying one of these three for my father for Christmas. I own Arabian Nights, and he likes that quite a bit, and says it smells sophisticated. I've read a lot of good things about the Bogart line from other basenoters, and it seems the brand has quite the following on here. One Man Show, I've seen a lot of good press about, and I tried it once, briefly, and remembered liking it. But it was far too brief a sniff to have a really good impression of it.

    When the Gold edition was announced, there was a lot of talk about that one too, so I always kept that one in mind for my sample list. And the notes seemed to promising.
    (see thread: http://www.basenotes.net/threads/279...w-Gold-Edition)

    Also, when Riviera Nights came out, I saw some good reviews on this as well. (see thread: http://www.basenotes.net/threads/268...RA-NIGHTS-2010) The notes of this one seem to make this sound like a more contemporary smelling fragrance than OMS.

    My dad currently owns and likes Dolce & Gabbana PH, Cool Water, Body Kouros (which I bought him), and Chrome. Going off this, which one would you recommend for me to blind buy him?

    Have all three and like all three. Gold Edition is quite powerful and lasts a long time. My preference is Riviera Nights.

    Riviera nights is very different from Arabian Nights. They have nothing in common.

    I like Riviera the most (dried fruits) but it dont project that much for a bogart fragrance

    One Man Show.

    Have you tried Bogart Pour Homme????? Wonderful fresh Cherry Tobacco Scent you might want to consider. It's a gem.

    One Man Show Golden is the ultra strong version of Lapidus for Men. I would not recommend buying it blind... at all. I cannot say anything about Rivera Nights.

    are they so similar so that I don't need to get lapidus if I have one man show gold?

    Unless you want it stronger than the original Lapidus... It is, by far, the strongest scent in my wardrobe (up to 200 bottles). Do some search in the threads written about it and you will find out that many agree on it being too similar to Lapidus for Men.

    Thumbs down on the One Man Show. Too much herbs. Dont know the other two. OMS is so completely opposite of everything else he has. What about some nice LInstant pour Homme?

    Actually, I didn't get him anything, lol. But I still want to sample both of these. SOMEBODY PM me if you can give me a sample of either of the three. Maybe I can swap some samples I have, or make a sample of fragrances I own...

    It seems like most Bogart fragrances are limited edition (aside from OMS and Pour Homme, as you can easily find them). Is this true?
