I read many review stating it is a good scent in a more classic, manly way. Some say it would have a not so good top notes but overall a good one. What do you think about it?

If your talking about the "Bogart by Jacques Bogart",
I feel its a nice blend of iris and rose which dries down
to a nice spice and leather, dry but really nice, I would
call it a leathery aromatic fougere.
as pictured above !!
I have both A/S & EDT & when that time of the year comes around , im one very happy chappy
Although unspectacular at first glance, in my opinion the vintage version is actually a masterpiece (and although they are completely different from each other, in that regard it reminds me of Invasion Barbare)!
It's almost perfect for everyday wear: very classic masculine, sparkling clean, natural and refreshing without losing it's edge. Good longevity and perfect projection (not too weak but not suffocatingly strong either). Absolutely timeless.
Vintage Bogart (not as pictured, should be a clear bottle with yellow juice, the edt was 85% instead of 90%) is one of my great loves and indeed "signature" worthy! The reformulation did disappoint me.
Yeah, the top notes are very screechy and harsh but the leathery drydown is wonderful - imagine One Man Show crossed with Worth Pour Homme - pretty close I would say.
The topnotes of the vintage aren't screechy (as opposed to the reformulation), they are bracingly herbal and natural - think of classic Speick soap.
This appears to be the original / vintage version.
