First well and then OHYES! LOVE! Simply LOVE!
I went through a little rollercoaster of emotions with the Bogner Woman. At first, the name makes you think that there are similarities to my beloved Woman No. 1. But that is not the case. However, there seems to be some confusion on Parfumo, as Woman No. 1 can sometimes be seen in the pictures of Bogner Woman. I once put a photo of my 6 miniatures in my photo album, because the miniature and bottle looked exactly the same as in my picture.

Some of you are probably wondering why I own 6 miniatures: Quite simply, at the beginning, when I was desperately looking for the Woman No. 1, I was still unsure which one was the "right one". That's why I can now tell these two fragrances apart very well. Admittedly, I was a little disappointed at first because the top note didn't smell like Woman No. 1 at all. But the fragrance DNA of Bogner Woman has developed so well that I now want to keep all the miniatures. The base note is simply wonderful! The sillage may not be effervescent, but the longevity is perfectly fine. Although the whole thing smells relatively close to the skin after 4-6 hours, I could still easily detect some miniatures on my skin even after 12 hours.

The top note starts off somewhat effervescent with a slightly sour but pronounced citrus aroma. Here I recognize bergamot, lemons and a hint of mandarin oranges. The heart note is very floral but also woody, balsamic, sweet and subtly earthy. There are hints of rosewood, patchouli, garden carnations, iris, jasmine blossom, cedarwood and rose water. I also have to think a little of a gentle soapiness here. The base smells really great to me, creamy, powdery, sweet and vanilla-like. I can smell tonka beans, bourbon vanilla, slightly tobacco-like ambergris, animalic, leathery civet with musk and a lovely hint of benzoin. Oh, and I think I can also catch a hint of cinnamon and cloves. Simply melting away!

As a guy, what am I going to do with my miniatures now? Well, if one day I can give up my lonely "single existence", I would have a fragrance for my sweetheart. What I'm already thinking about today...I know...I'm far too cerebral...

Warm, spicy summer floral
This one came out in 1990, and smells exactly like it. A heavy, sweet and intoxicating blend of fruit and summery floral notes, warmed by sandalwood, amber and vanilla. I am sure I have seen somewhere the notes linden blossom and heliotrope for this perfume, and I am pretty certain I smell both - linden blossom as a sort of golden drizzle on top, while heliotrope is more of a powdery base. I believe I also smell a good dose of musk. Benzoin is clearly present. Also just a little bit of green freshness, particularly in the opening.

It seems that most other voters prefer this in the colder seasons, but to me, everything in it points towards summer. Maybe not for 30C, it would probably be too cloying, but for 18-20C it is perfect - the early stages of summer, when everything green and floral is still developing, and the air is sweet and full of expectations.

As it dries down, I can feel the sweet, powdery combination of benzoin, heliotrope and vanilla more clearly. I recognize it from the sister Bogner Now, which came out a year later. In fact, I get the feeling that Bogner Now took the formula for Bogner Woman, removed the fresh florals, then multiplied the ingredients in the base before heating it all in the oven... and out came a super-powdery benzoin-heliotrope-vanilla pudding. Lovely in its own way, but too sweet for me. However, a small portion of this base is exactly what gives the warmth that I love so much in Bogner Woman. Floral perfumes usually do not agree with me too well, but when it is full of warm supportive notes like here, I find it just perfect.

Sadly this beauty is now rare, and the bottle I got a few years ago was very expensive. On the other hand, sillage and longevity are great, so it will last me for many May and June days, for years to come.
