    Default Something on par with Bogart Pour Homme?

    I've heard that it's been compared an equal in strength of sillage with Joop! Homme. I own Joop! Homme but I've never even smelt or seen bogart pour homme, this thing's so hard to find. I agree that joop homme does last a long time, projects up to 2 feet even after 8 hours, sillage lasts about 8 to 10 seconds after I leave (after 8 hours). Is there anything that's even stronger in sillage? I've heard about angel men, well I bought one and Joop! Homme actually reigned superior maybe because that angel men is chocolate and smells dark, that it's harder to notice than joop's vanillic floral spicy 'bright' smell. Angel men's smell doesn't really linger around, not much of a sillage after 8 hours, it just projects and that's it (to me, i bought the late 2013 batch). What do you think? toss projection aside and leave sillage and sillage's longevity, which one do you think is better than Bogart Pour Homme & Joop! Homme ? or maybe even better?

    I own both Joop! Homme (vintage version) and Bogart pour homme. Bogart is definitely one of my favs!
    Sweet cherry pipe tobacco with lots of tonka bean and some vanilla. To me the cherry is not that noticable and the sweetness is just right! Utterly masculine fragrance as well! Joop! Homme is very sweet and loud and has therefor to be applied very carefully when you want it 'to work' in the drydown!
    Bogart is pretty loud first 1-2 hrs (depending on amount of application) but then settles nicely and has average projection for 6 more hrs or so before becoming a skin scent. Bogart would be a no brainer for me out of these two! It is also very cheap so you can't 'go wrong'.
    (I also own Amen vintage and that one eats both of these fragrances regarding longevity and sillage!)
    My Top 10 : (In no particular order)

    - Dolce & Gabbana: Pour Homme (vintage)
    - Paco Rabanne: Pour Homme (vintage)
    - Loewe: Solo (Absoluto)
    - Chanel: Antaeus
    - Chanel: Egoïste
    - MPG: Santal Noble
    - Guerlain: Vetiver
    - Amouage: Jubilation XXV
    - Dior: Homme Intense
    - YSL: Kouros (Fraicheur)

    Gaultier 2, if you are comfortable with its grapey sweetness. I, for one, love it.

    Opium pour Homme EdP would probably appeal, it has similar longevity and projection to Bogart pH and I find some similarities in their drydowns.

    Of these two, I'd say Bogart.

    vintage ones are almost impossible to find here you mentioned opium, which one out of the ysl house has the best men's fragrance when it comes to sillage? how about La Nuit De L'Homme or rive gauche?

    I meant a fragrance that's even got better sillage than bogart and joop :/ and the sillage that needs to actually last a long time

    and I couldn't find gaultier 2 I tried to for 2 whole weeks last month.

    Then Gaultier 2 for sure. Every now and then it pops up on Ebay. Just be patient. (1809)

    for something (where I live, which is indonesia) with the weight of a 100ml fragrance+box would actually cost me over 40$ for shipping lol, that's almost the exact same price of the fragrance itself. I'm just looking for one sold locally.

    Assuming you are after more recent releases rather than 20 or 30 year old powerhouses, one that comes to mind in my collection that is on par with Bogart PH is The Gap: The Original.
    Basically it is sweet plum and leather which projects strongly and lasts a very long time, and i got it very inexpensively.

    Another contender may be the discontinued but still around in some shops Arpege Pour Homme.

    And I've been quite taken with the projection and endurance of A*men Pure Malt.

    what do you guys think of fleur du male? I'm trying to find cheaper ones that are strong like altamir by lapidus because I've bought a couple of expensive ones lately. So is fleur du male worth it? considering the sillage power and sillage longevity, or is it just about the same as Joop! post - year 2000?

    Only speaking for myself, I own it and do like it and if you can get it at a good price, is worth it IMO.On my skin it has good sillage and longevity.

    It's very floral without anything much masculine in it. Regardless, I quite liked it in the shop, but my wife put her foot down and said she didn't want me wearing such a girlie scent around her.

    Certainly has sillage and staying power. You must like orange blossom and vanilla to enjoy it but if you like Altamir you should be fine.

    I owned it for a second and quickly got rid of it. It was soooo cloying, oh my God! I just couldn't do it. I gave it to my friend. He then told me that he got a compliment from his girlfriend on it. Hey, good for him. Joop is some strong stuff too, but I like Joop. Totally wearable for me. Which one has more sillage/projection? I dunno. They're probably about neck and neck.

    Bogart is good stuff! Its one of a handful that I and many others find; its quality far exceeds the very low price.
