Self-deprecating workhorse
I have been convinced for quite some time that the people at Bogart in Paris are discreetly self-ironic. I mean, to create a perfume that is kitsch-associatively called "Riviera Nights", packed in an unadorned 90s flacon without any conspicuousness - you have to have that much minimal taste first. But less is often more and we all know that Bogart's products always stand for handwriting and certain idiosyncrasies. They haven't really thrown out real flops on the market, according to my perceived truth. But I dare to doubt that "Riviera Nights" must have been a huge success - the company from Paris certainly has quite different market hits in its portfolio than this one. Reason enough to take a close look at it (for this very reason).
To be honest, I wouldn't want to miss it anymore. "Riviera Nights" is a quiet, office fragrance, a light summery perfume without frills. The name does all the associative work. It's a workhorse. But it is anything but a synthetic or even aquatic, because the Riviera Nights has nothing of that. Bogart's typical strong individual scents, all stuck in their place, are well composed, and with an astonishing sense of style that says: don't attract attention - just to attract attention! Dark citrus notes, dried fruit. The spiciness comes from grated nutmeg, and in the drydown a strangely rough earthiness like freshly mixed plaster. I also like his Sillage better than his opening. Only - in contrast to other Bogart traditions - it doesn't last very long on the skin. That may be okay. His field of application should not be.

Scenario for this: Saint-Tropez. Holiday bungalow. Midsummer. He's just coming off the beach in a sweat. She, his secret lover of 25 years, sends him to the nearest Intermarché. Shopping for dinner. Shortly before closing time, he no longer feels like taking a quick shower. Sprays "Rivera Nights" on his white half wet shirt. He smells quite good now. She thinks so. He's leaving. So he can be seen and smelled in the Intermarché. That's what she said to him. Give him a quick one. She's got it all figured out. He thinks so. Riviera Nights.

Smells exotic; love the spiciness!
While this is a bit harsh on first spray, the alcohol dries away in a few seconds, and then the fragrance reveals the dried fruits, spiciness and tonka. While this is somewhat of a linear scent, this fragrance does have some depth, and when I keep smelling this over and over again on my skin (over a 15 minute period); this fragrance changes slightly and smells exotic to me, like walking into a store selling wares from Morocco, India, Mexico, and tiny Asian villages from all over the world. There's the dried fruits on top, and then the tonka, spices and vetiver in the middle and then there's a foundation of wood and neroli. I don't smell the grapefruit or the bergamot, which I think is a good thing. I'm not sure why there is some hate for this fragrance, for the price you can't beat this one. Does it last more than 4 or 5 hours on my skin...? Nope! But it isn't a skin scent either, and I give this one a 8 / 10. Good fall, winter, day and evening. Could be a signature scent. Highly recommend.

My 1st blind purchase in 2020 and directly the goal of the month
The really well-balanced mixture of spice and fruit makes this fragrance so interesting, and with a price of under 12, - € you can start a blind purchase. After the first application, the fruity part predominates at first, but after a longer period of time the spicy-classical scent comes to the fore and becomes more and more interesting: Strong but not pushy, classic but not old-fashioned either. To sum up: For me, it was like a hit outside the 16-meter room, volleyed and straight into the corner: Toooooooor!

Potent stuff
That's a synthetic fruity smell that did not work for me.

There's also a huge cardamon smell that actually does not smell good.

Sillage, projection and lasting power are great (around 10 hours).

A grower over time. Woody, fruity, spicy and unique. I can't help liking this a lot.
