    Talking Montale Black Aoud vs Bogart Pour Homme

    Hello all please help i have read that these 2 fragrances are potent but Black Aoud is expensive and Bogart is cheap. Is Black Aoud worth the extra money based on sillage and lasting power ? .

    Thanks

    They really have nothing to do with one another. Get Bogart if you like sweet tobacco, cherry frags like Pure Malt/Havane, Spicebomb, Animale Animale. It only cost $18 so why not.

    Completely different scents, but I prefer Bogart pour Homme of the two (and i like both kinds of scent catagories they fall into respectively). I guess it depends what you are looking for.

    If you are looking for a sillage and longevity monster, Bogart certainly gets the job done in the "cherry pipe tobacco" sweet scent category.

    Black Aoud is a rose, Oud and patchouli sillage monster. If I were looking for that category it is certainly worth consideration, but Portrait of a Lady also occupies that general territory and is the much better scent, IMO. Your taste/opinion may differ, of course... I would sample them both and decide for yourself...
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage/V.I.P. for Men (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4)
    Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6)
    Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)
    9) Javanese Patchouli (Zegna) - tie
    9) Monsieur de Givenchy vintage (Givenchy) - tie
    9) Coeur de Vetiver Sacré (L'Artisan) - tie
    9) X for Men (Clive Christian) - tie
    9) Patou pour Homme Privé (Jean Patou) - tie
    9) Oud Shamash (The Different Company) - tie

    Both different and both worth buying IMO.

    Completely different. Bogart Pour Homme is stronger.

    Since they are so different, I'd suggest you order a sample from ThePerfumedCourt.com or Luckyscent.com for Black Aoud, and Bogart Pour Homme is inexpensive enough to consider it as a blind-buy. Montales have a reputation for being very potent, though they're also a bit formulaic (given they have about 27 different Aouds), but that said I love Black Aoud.

    It's all a matter of whether a fragrance is worth the difference between aorund $20-30 versus around $150, or a strong EDT versus a full EDP.

    Yes different scents. My choise is Bogart Pour Homme. I don't like Black Aoud.
