Thread: Bogner help?

    Question Bogner help?

    Hey everybody.

    I've just purchased a bottle of Bogner Man Classic, and after a long search I can find little about it anywhere online. The Basenotes entry with the same bottle lists it as Bogner Man (version #2) and lists the notes as follows:

    Top: Bergamot, Neroli, Lemon, Tarragon
    Middle: Carnation, Cyclamen, Freesia, Jasmine
    Base: Cedarwood, Musk, Tonka, Amber.

    The Bogner website lists it as Man Classic and offers the following notes:

    Top: Lemon, Grapefruit, Blackcurrant
    Mid: Ylang-ylang, jasmine, rose, carnation
    Base: Oak moss, vetiver

    The pictures are the same on both, but I suspect this is a new product (bought on eBay) as it didn't look to me like a bottle from 1990, which is when the second version of Bogner Man was made.

    I'm cursing my untrained nose here; this opens up very dry and floral and reminds me somewhat of Cacharel pour l'homme but as it sits longer on my skin, it's getting juicier and more 'feminine'. It certainly smells wonderful but I can't work out what it is I'm smelling...

    I can't smell tarragon, which is always strong to my nose and usually reminds me of roast chicken, but I'm not getting lemon and blackcurrant either - this is getting sweeter but certainly not fruity to my nose. I can't work out which set of notes is right; maybe I'll have to wait for the drydown because even I can tell the difference between sweet tonka musk with cedar and amber and oakmoss/vetiver...

    Does anyone have any experience of this fragrance? Help me!

    That pic may not work, I've linked it from the listing so it may be too much bandwidth for them. It's definitely the same bottle as listed on their website:!/BOGNER/P...-CLASSIC/SCENT

    I've moved on from testing on my wrists to a full wearing for this afternoon, so I'm back at the top notes which really remind me of Cacharel but without the nutmeg, if that makes sense? This is certainly potent stuff though, which I am always appreciative of.
