Reflects broad-legged
Attempts to find classic scent signatures in connection with oud have so far failed for me: Synthetic oud and traditional compositions either didn't go well together (Colonia Oud) or the character of classical houses was distorted and the result seemed strangely half-hearted (Floris' Leather Oud). If I didn't want to spend a small fortune on - admittedly great - real oudlers like those from Ormonde Jayne, for example, all that was left for me to do was to put the formula "Old European Perfume School + Oud" with the remark "not satisfactorily dissolved" aside and turn to a more promising game. Fortunately, I don't only like the ancient obscurities of Anno Kautabak, as seen from the mainstream, but also fragrances from the time of the so-called Powerhouse Era. Their representatives from the core time between about 1975 and 1990 like to turn everything up to 10 when it comes to spices, soap and animalics and behave to many classics of the previous decades like "Bat out of Hell" to "All you need is Love". In the style of the Ratiopharm twins, one would like to ask: Is there also something with Oud?

There shouldn't be, should there? After all, the hype about the fragrance only started a good ten years ago, long after the end of the period mentioned above. But a review by the esteemed user MonsieurTest drew my attention (once again!) to a fragrance from Jacques Bogart's One Man Show series. While the original One Man Show from the 70s has a reputation of being one of the most archetypal hits from the powerhouse line-up, MonsieurTest's review of the "Gold Edition" flanker also read as if the basic substance (brand: Elegant Steam Pile) had remained largely untouched. A house, then, that has been flanking a classic for forty(!) years without betraying its basic character? That deserves applause. And then there should even be an oud version of this one? For far under 20€?! There is not petty rumgesoukt, there is bought.

After a first test shower (the spray head of our glass cleaner doses more sparingly) I came to an intermediate conclusion within a few minutes, which did not change even after several test runs: This is exactly how you have to handle synthetic oud! Don't step quietly, don't turn it down, but join a gang of similarly polarizing, dominant colleagues who confidently take the "newcomer" under their wings.
The meanwhile almost standardized, prickly-woody and slightly medicinal scent impression of the commonly known synthie oud is framed after a somehow crumbly-fruity alcoholic opening (professionally matured Obstler) mainly by strong green, bitter-adstringent galbanum - which strangely enough reminds me of Grey Flannel of all things - and a no less strong leather soap note. The vintage spice bouquet (I suspect cinnamon and basil in addition to thyme) almost takes a back seat, but, like the comparatively sparingly dosed patchouli, gives the fragrance its actual "perfumery". Jacques Bogart was told by a co-parfumo that perfumes were not composed with a pipette but with a measuring cup. I have the same impression, but they did compose there. And that's good!
The Oud Edition of One Man Show is as broad-legged and long-lasting as the great powerhouses of yesteryear (Kouros, Santos etc.), but has been carefully adapted to the present day with noticeable love for the fragrance signature of that era. Whoever wears it reflects his or her preference for that time, without wanting to ironize it clumsily: OMS - Oud Edition is, to put it in a formula, "0% Hipster". If you want a musical comparison, we would like to refer you to one of the best Retrowave projects, which transfer the melancholic synthiepop of the 80s into the here and now with equally tenderly updated interventions: Look on Youtube for FM-84 with the song "Running in the Night" - my personal soundtrack for this fragrance.

A real Bogart!
The previous speakers already wrote it, for the price we have of course the finest synthetic oud. I think that is excellent here, because what is not natural does not always have to be bad. For the price this would not be presentable either, because the oud edition is available for small money. I find it charming that Bogart doesn't even try to be natural, because as synthetic as it is, it fits much better to the fragrance.
Personally, I appreciate classics and classic perfumers, respectively, and therefore feel sympathy for Bogart, although I don't always find the 70s and sometimes 80s fragrances right for me personally. But that is not a judgement. In any case, the 2014 oud paint is one that really warms me up. You spray with the relatively clunky bottle and there it is! The fragrance cloud with ingredients where you can only nod and say: yes, this is definitely not unisex. One You start out cracking, slaying and temporarily aging, in my case by decades at 33. But I'd like to limit that: the fragrance is uncompromising and that expands the spectrum of its wearers to a much broader age group. Nevertheless, I associate with the fragrance either a certain age or a certain character, an uncompromising old-school man or a very direct appearance.
The good galbanum, there was no saving, the spices - whatever they may be - let the mix explode. Amazing what is fired here at the beginning! The whole thing is enmeshed by the synthie-ud and patchouli, I can't see anything more but nobody is itching here either! One Man Oud Edition is great if you can handle oldschool fireworks. The scent won't change, it just gets weaker with time. Six hours and maybe a bit more are in it, I'm satisfied with that

Headshop Happening
In the head shop of your confidence, led by Heinz, who draws attention to his assortment with a clear Saxon (Bavarian, Swabian, etc.) accent and with the obligatory "Nu" first intensively scratches with the knitting dolly of his wife Heiderose on the veritable Rasta head, you can find everything what gelegenheitskiffende department heads need for your excessive weekend: Rasta wigs, batik T-shirts, bongs, gongs and hand-picked watercress...
Who shies away from the visit of said establishment, because Maximiliane (who picks up her 2-year-old daughter Surprise just from the Mandarin language course) accidentally drinks your "(morning) Latte Macchiato" not far from the shop on the corner can optionally order the Bogart Oud Edition home and get the "Headshopambiente" in the home bungalow...
Jacques`Oud Edition here in the Souk very cheaply acquired (thanks to Testoboy) offers smoke, oud and soapy in one. The oud here is synthetic (whoever wants/can tell) accompanied by a dry sweetness that consequently doesn`t seem sticky at all. The "stunning, penetrating " appearance invoked here and in English-language forums does not reveal itself to one who is familiar with oldschool fragrances. In any case, you don't necessarily fall into a coma unless you use the scent as an asthma inhaler. The comparison with furniture polish is just stupid.... Basically, Oud Edition has an incense feel to it which is not a negative connotation at all. What remains in the drydown is incense and dancing patchouli...
JBOE is in any case fun and is more wearable in autumn / winter. The legendary durability is rather a fairy tale but quite above average (about 8 hours).
The fragrance is also similar to Tom Ford's Oud Wood or Dior Leather Oud - What more could you want for just under 16 euros? Who that's too little standing, which can yes with a cup of "Kopi Luwak" (cat coffee) with the Müllers talk about said alternatives and stretch in between the Soleus...

Big bang for the buck
Fantastic fragrance but of the LOVE IT or HATE IT kind.
Well above-average performance and a divine leather oud patchouly experience; It is a bit dark just the way I like it.
Clearly in my woody scents top 20.
It opens with a cloying blast of galbanum, spices, and oud. That lasts for 30 minutes or so (ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT); The first hour is not for sensible noses. It's a totally manly scent with more than a couple of synthetic notes.
The dry-down gives you a softer oud (softer but not "soft") with leather and patchouli. It's a divine dry down that seems to last forever.

Let's see the math for Bogart's Oud Edition:
- Scent: 9.5 (close to awsome - my judgment)
- Longevity: 10.0 (12 hours+ with 3 sprays)
- Sillage: 10.0 (fills a room for 5 hours with 3 sprays; projects noticeably for 5 hours); practical skin scent till the 14th~16th hour.
- Uniqueness: 10.0 (the closest scent I know is Bogart Ruby Edition but just a small similarity. Better than many oud niche perfumes)
- Wearability: 6.0 (Just for oud lovers)
- Versatility: 6.0 (Winter and Spring/Autumn cold nights).
- Quality: 7.0 (a bit synthetic but I like it; so so flask)
- Presentation: 7.5 (vulgar but efficient)
- Price: 10.0 (100 ml for 13,5 Euros + VAT)

Average: 8.46 / 10.00

In my top 20 woody scents? Yes
Will I buy it again? Yes for sure.
Is there a similar Oud fragrance I like as much as this one? Yes, Bogart's Oud edition (LOL).
Will I recommend it? a big YES due to the scent, and price

The finest synthetic oud
The very first spraying made it clear that this perfume was certainly not a quiet step. This was of course due to the perfume itself, as well as the very rustic spray mechanism. A fine dosage was hardly possible here. A huge surge of fragrance escaped the otherwise pretty vintage-style bottle as soon as it was gently pressed down. The nose was dominated by spicy bergamot and smoke in the form of galbanum. Seconds later, the thyme was added, which almost beat me to death. A comparison with "Back to the future III" came to my mind: Phase 1 had ignited ! (the green pellet - you know!)
For me, no other fragrance was perceptible at this time than smoky thyme, which flattened everything else. After an eternity that I felt, a program change: spices and more spices in the form of geranium, sage, saffron, coriander and nutmeg. It was clear to me: Phase 2 must have ignited (the yellow pellet ...) ! No prisoners here either - an incredibly intense smell of fine, synthetic oud paired with the already mentioned spices. After a few hours the last phase (the red pellet) ignited and the fragrance picked up speed again and after an incredible 12 hours ended with a warm patchouli leather note. I couldn't make out a papyrus note.
One Man Show Oud Edition is loud, unconventional, without relying on the usual rose chord found in many oud perfumes.
The projection as well as the durability are gigantic good. Use is recommended in late autumn and in winter at cooler temperatures.
My conclusion : I like the small, extremely masculine Kawalletti with his typical Bogart DNA

For the price, I just thought that it would be another Bogart for my collection. Instead, I received a precious Oud gem.

This perfume is wonderfully oriental, disgustingly synthetic, super artificial and very long lasting. It's hard to love it more than I do!

A rough and dirty spicy oud. I now love it after giving it a chance. OMS Oud has so much character.
