    Default What to buy for $20 on amazon...F Black or Bogart PH

    Like title says, i got a 20$ amazon car for christmas and looking through there, they have good deals on either F Black and Bogart Pour homme. I've seen several videos on youtube hyping both. JeremyFragrance loves loves F black and my personal favorite reviewer, MrSmelly loves Bogart. I'm 25, have others like DHI, Lanvin Avant Garde, Hanae Mori HM and some older Giorgio BH 80s scents that I oddly enjoy. I know these two are not even similar, but is there a better one for my age range and fact I work at a BMW dealer?

    Thank you!

    I own both and prefer F Black by a large margin. It is also my wife's favorite.

    I'm not a huge fan of F Black, but I like Bogart PH pretty well.
    To oversimplify, F Black is a mall scent tonka bomb with lavender/pepper aromatics on top for a more annoying sillage. Bogart Pour Homme is synthetic sweet cherry pipe tobacco. Go sniff a pack of Captain Black's cherry at the corner store and you're roughly in the ballpark of Bogart PH.
    Both are pretty solid performers. F Black is slightly lighter and probably projects a bit more whereas Bogart PH seems to wear a little more closely and densely on me.
    If I was a customer at your car dealership, I might not want to be trapped in a car on a test drive if the salesman was wearing very much of either one, to be honest. If you're a mechanic or a detailer or otherwise not confined with customers in small spaces then it probably doesn't matter as much.

    IMO fragrances with a nice leather note pair well with nice cars, so maybe look in that direction if you want some synergy for the workplace.
    To that end, I like another Bogart better- Bogart in the signature bottle. Also cheap on Amazon. It's not particularly a young guy's fragrance (I'm 40 FWIW) but I don't think that would be a problem given your other picks.
    Another really good one is Montana Parfum d'Homme in the red box. It's expensive on amazon but cheaper on ebay. Shit, just looked at ebay and the stuff is $50 a bottle now! It was $25 a couple of years ago. So nevermind on that one, I guess. I should have backed that up while it was cheap.

    I received a 2012 bottle of Bogart Pour Homme from fragrance.net . I’m assuming that’s a good score! Bogart makes great fragrances worth twice or more what their being sold for Bogart PH would be my choice.

    F Black is the easier one to like but I personally think Bogart PH is the more interesting, unique scent and also prefer it more.

    Personally, I'd choose Bogart Pour Homme by a long margin. I bought F Black after hearing it was like La Nuit de L'Homme but it certainly isn't the clone I was led to believe it was! More like a cross between La Nuit, Perry Ellis M and various Chanel fragrances Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme with orange.. I'd prefer to wear each of those fragrances on their own opposed to having one fragrance with a combination of all them.

    Even though from memory, the notes and description say something entirely different, to me Bogart Pour Homme is a nice cherry tobacco. Notes reminiscent of Pure Havane, Tonka Imperiale (don't get me wrong, it isn't a clone of them.. it just shares certain elements IMO). It's been a while since I wore it though so I may be somewhat hazy.. but yes, Bogart do some of the best inexpensive fragrances on the market IMHO, I'd choose the Bogart for sure.

    Bogart pour Homme, obviously.

    I don't mind wearing these cheap, synthetic fragrances but F is a bit too much for me.

    I've never tried the Bogart, but I have smelled the Ferragamo. Emphatically, I'd say get anything besides F Black, therefore, Bogart between the two.

    Overall, my advice is to find another $10 in your couch cushions (or the pockets of people shopping for BMWs) and expand your options.

    Fun Fact: as of 2012 (I think) BMW was the car brand of choice of men who cheat on their wives. I think the deterministic input was questionable, though.

    I've seen this too. Looks intriguing but it's an old scent. It's not too old man smelling? No offense to the older crowd haha. If it's powerhouse like antaeus, I'm down because I love that

    Depends on which old man are are you talking about. I guess same old man who wears Z-14 and Grey Flannel.

    I'm my opinion neither would be very good riding in a vehicle with a passenger like a test drive. They are both super strong. The Bogart, even with a tiny quarter spray on both sides of my neck it damn near stings my eyes and still goes 8 hours later. I work in a vehicle by myself, outdoors, or in larger in closed spaces so I frequently wear Bogart and love it. If I were you I'd look at some lighter, or at least more non-offensive colognes. From what you seem to like, may i suggest Sung Pour Homme (a few sprays under the shirt to keep it in check cause it's strong also), or Issey Miyake Bleue D'issey (strong and long lasting, but very unique and professional). Both would be around 20 dollars. Good luck.
