    Cool The Bogart Joint: Officially Un-Official House of Jacques Bogart Thread

    Bogart is a very underrated house which has been creating fragrances for men since 1975, using the phrase "Je ne crée que pour l'homme" (I create only for men) as their slogan. Several of their creations get talked about here on Basenotes both new and old. Vintage guys always bring up Bogart Eau de Toilette Pour Homme/Signature (1975) or One Man Show (1980), with collectors of discontinued scents also often singing praise to items like De Viris (1982) or Furyo (1988), and even guys focused on more modern creations have a Bogart or two on mind, like Bogart Pour Homme (2004), or Silver Scent (2006).

    Yet, there are so many more Bogart scents that go under the radar, or just plain untried. This came to my attention when a fellow Basenoter asked me about Arabian Nights (2010) and Club 75 (2016) because of a recent review about One Man Show Oud Edition (2014), and I hadn't heard of either! This house has also been making its masculines at powerhouse strength like the 80's never ended, which I find fascinating and amusingly out-of-step almost to the point of feeling intentionally contrarian. I mean come on, Bogart feels like a house dedicated to the stereotypically ostentatious "cologne guy", popped collars and all.

    I admit, they are also on the value end of the scent spectrum so like Coty, Avon, Lomani, Claiborne, and others that on average stay under the $30 mark, the "stitching" can be a little more obvious on their wares, but I have yet to hear anyone deride the house as "cheap" (unlike some of the others), so I guess they're doing something right! Anyone have Bogart thoughts or experiences they want to share? Anything about their more-obscure creations that you feel merits attention (current or discontinued)?

    They've obviously had a huge influence on Balenciaga and Ted Lapidus (the latter of the two for whom they still make fragrances), as many of the past (and current for Lapidus) male-aimed creations from those houses also carry the potent "Bogart swagger". Also, any questions about Bogart fragrances for which answers can't be gleaned from the directory should be placed here. I just think having a tractable thread on this house is a good idea overall.

    CHEERS!

    I'll definitely check back into this thread when I have more time as I feel it might be my favorite in a while.

    My first Bogart was silver scent intense and it was so different than anything I've had before. The mixture of perceived to Grape, musk, and florals were a revelation. It was also the first scent I owned in my journey that I could consider beast mode. Just wore it yesterday, as a matter of fact. It rides very well under the shirt for a very long time. 8-10 hours.

    I dipped my toes in the water with Bogart Signature and loved it. Also thinking about OMS Oud Edition and Riviera Nights. Arabian Nights sounds good to.

    OMS Oud Edition is a synth oud bomb. It's not as sharp, dry, or medicinal than some because it has a "Tabaromy" leather similar to Signature in it, plus some DNA to the original OMS (which was a castoreum bomb). Just saying be careful, it is unapologetic about what it is (but definitely not the strongest synth oud note, Montale/Mancera keeps that trophy).

    As a teenager and growing up I had some typical eighties fragrances. Stuff like Drakkar, Pierre Cardin, Canoe and the like. I continue to use these exclusively until a couple years ago.

    As I stated earlier, my first Bogart was silver scent intense. While that was new and exciting to me, nothing could prepare me for my next purchase... One Man Show. Immediately upon spraying, I thought I had made a mistake. I've never been slapped in the face with such green soapiness, and admittedly, my first thought was of those little Grandma soaps.

    I resisted the urge to scrub it off and let it ride. After about an hour or two my near disgust turned to curiosity, and an hour after that I was glued to my wrist, sniffing for the remainder of the fragrances long duration.

    Not even Sung can compare with the green blast of One Man Show. However there is something spicy leathery and incense lurking beneath.

    One man show is a scent made for flannel shirts, crunching pine needles beneath your boots, and breathing in fresh, cold air.

    It's such a lovely herbal leather, and one of the quieter Bogarts (translation: normal)

    One Man Show is from 1980, so it fits in with your past loves.

    I like OMS Gold Edition and Bogart Pour Homme is nice, from a distance.

    I also have Silver Scent Deep, blindly bought. While its top end features the noted creamy sweet grape essence, its dry down goes something wretched. I've been too shy to try again; has anyone else experienced this in the dry down with Silver Scent (Deep or others)?

    I have a bottle of Jacques Bogart Pour Homme (2004): love the scent, love the performance, but hardly wear it. Can't help but think I have better patchouli frags. But I wouldn't mind having a sniff of their other frags.

    This house has also been making its masculines at powerhouse strength like the 80's never ended, which I find fascinating and amusingly out-of-step almost to the point of feeling intentionally contrarian.
    Do they have any that don't perform at powerhouse strength?

    I have. I blind bought it and despite the impressive opening, in the end I didn't really like it, because the general feel it gave me was something akin to a deodorant.

    I think the only one I have from Bogart is Eau Fresh. I think I got this around 2010. It was a cheapie off Amazon, and the reviews on BN indicated it was decent, so I figured why not?

    One thing with the name. Anyone expecting that this a light and refreshing frag will be disappointed. Fresh here definitely does not mean light.

    Starts off very green and soapy, but doesn't stay that way. Develops into a heavier than you might expect fougere, a la Xeryus in the middle (but not as heavy as say Lapidus PH) as it dries down with a prominent sandalwood base. Once it gets into the middle it's pretty dry, I don't think I detected a prominent violet leaf or galbanum in there to wetten it up, green-wise. (Though chances are they are in there, I haven't checked the note listing, just going on memory.) The green notes always linger. Good for almost any occasion but use a light trigger finger.

    Performance is excellent, I get all day out of this one. Not sure about silage.

    I rather like it.

    I've noticed that prices are jumping recently on Amazon for Bogart frags but that might just be a function of exploiting Christmas pricing.

    I might want to try the following from Bogart: the original Bogart, City Tower (I like incense and might put my toe in something with Oud - I only have my original M7 from "back in the day"), and Bogart PH.

    Furyo is one of those rare fragrances I'd consider giving a 5-star rating to. It's really that good.

    Owning quite a few from this house and having tested even more (while planning to expand the Bogart lineup with further purchases as well) so far had the best experiences with One Man Show, Furyo, Force Majeure, Riviera Nights, Bogart pour Homme, Bogart Signature, One Man Show Gold Edition, in no particular order while also being able to relate about the generally very good opinion about the fragrances by Lapidus and, if it is possible to add another fragrances house owned and retailed by the same parent company, also Chevignon - getting also very good performance from either of the ones mentioned

    Great (and long overdue) thread on the fantastic house of Bogart! Count me in as a big fan. I have One Man Show (vintage, recent, aftershave & deodorant), plus the Gold and Ruby Editions, Witness, Arabian Nights, Signature & Pour Homme along with samples of OMS Oud Edition and Silver Scent Original, Intense, Deep and Pure. I also had full bottles of Force Majeur and Furyo but never wore them so sold them on for some other lucky person to enjoy...!

    Would love to find OMS Emerald Edition - anyone got this (hednic sir?). Would also love a full bottle of Silver Scent Intense at some point as I LOVE the grape smell. Cheers Mr Crusader...!

    Someone on Fragrantica once described One Man Show: Oud Edition as the smell of a Church once the incense and candles have burned out.

    Got stuck with me and I have to agree. I have shamefully stretched out a t-shirt neck or two, sniffing under my shirt throughout the day.

    Awwww you really should remedy that. There are a lot of good Bogarts out there you should at least see about sampling.
