    Default Jacques Bogart Story Blue and Story Red.

    Hi everybody,
    This is my first post .....

    I own some Jacques Bogart scents that I love (Bogart, Witness) and tried some that I hate (City Tower, One Man Show) and have just seen 2 new fragrances from this house proposed by an on-line vendor : Story Red and Story Blue.

    Is anybody already familiar with these 2 scents? If yes, can you provide some information ?

    Thanks.

    Hi Avecesar - welcome to Basenotes!

    I'm intrigued by your post - I though I was familiar with all Jacques Bogart's offerings but here we are looking at 2 mystery fragrances!



    I too wonder if anyone has any information on these?

    (By the way Avecesar - I know you're not a fan of One Man Show but have you tried One Man Show Gold Edition - I'm wearing it now - it's nothing like the original OMS. If you like the spicyness of Witness you might like this...!)

    With the help of Google Translate and some elementary French I can see that BLUE is an Aquatic Fougere with Citrus, Lemon & Grapefruit notes whilst RED is a Spicy Oriental with notes of Cardamom, Lavender, Mint, Cedar, Orange Blossom, Labdanum & Amber. I know which I'm most interested in trying....!

    Bogart used to spend all its money on perfumers, almost none on ingredients or marketing, etc. Recently they've begun spending a bit on packaging. But certainly nothing on product launches etc.

    Your translation is correct, Derbyman.
    (Thank you for your suggestion about OMS Gold Edition ).

    Does anyone know by the smells if the Bogart group simply repackaged Jacomo Rouge and Jacpomo Deep Blue
    ?

    Interesting, i was searching some Bogarts at CheapSmells (they always have a lot of the hard to find bogarts) and i found this 2 new ones.

    I hope its new creations and not just some renamed Jacomos.

    Intested too. Would love to see those two little gems (Jacomo Red and Deep BLue) with the known potency of Bogarts offerings...

    I have the red version and it is noting like Jacomo Red. Bogart Red start with a blast of lavender which quickly settles into the sweetness of orange blossoms then a cardamom note comes though and sticks around. To me it is like Xeryus Rouge mixed with Drakkar Noir.

    Not the best from Bogart but nice bottle.

    Care to put up a quick review on both? Whats the longevity and sillage like?

    The ingredients seem nice but I'm loathe to purchase without testing and cheapsmells seems to be the only place to get em.

    I tend to like stuff from the Bogart house. Am anxious to hear about these, and whether or not they are powerhouse status.
    I have 3 Bogarts and like all of 'em... especially their Bogart PH.

    Just found this thread... http://www.basenotes.net/threads/312...al-impressions

    I've tried both of these briefly. I liked the red better than the blue, but didn't care enough for either of them to buy one. They're not expensive but I'd rather spend my money on other products.

    Agree not the best releases from Bogart but there are many others a lot worse than this pair. Definitely not on par with some of the very early releases from this house.
