Reviews of Furyo by Jacques Bogart

There are 28 reviews of Furyo by Jacques Bogart.

I perceive an equal balance of animalic qualities and woody notes in this fragrance. Personally, I do not find the civet or castoreum notes to be too overwhelming. The overall effect is a musky scent with subtle hints of animalic qualities and a slight touch of sweetness from the amber. While the fragrance is decent, I do not find it particularly groundbreaking.

I tried to love Furyo, but it let me down. Upon first spray, I loved it. A few minutes laters I noticed that it already began to fade away. I kept smelling my wrist trying to figure out what other fragrance it reminded me of. It reminded me of Jungle for Men by Kenzo. Jungle is much stronger and longer lasting than Furyo, but also costs a little more. It's true, you get what you pay for. Too bad Furyo wasn't a fragrance powerhouse like all the other Jacques Bogart fragrances (except for City Tower, which didn't last at all on me). I suppose I'll stick to Jungle, that is, when they get it back in stock at FragranceNet.com. I also love Declaration by Cartier, which also has the cumin note. Perhaps I just got the reformulated version and the "vintage" version of Furyo performs better with better sillage. The lot number on my bottle is 8D1581574. Are there any other fragrances out there that smell 99.9% like Furyo that are longer lasting and that are a so-called powerhouse? If I can find a "double" of Furyo that projects like a monster, then I will definitely purchase that creation. Please advise.

Urinal....urinal cake. A busy toilet that's well taken care of by an affectionate, dutiful janitor. That's all I can think of. A nice version of that scent for sure! But that's what came to mind from start to finish.

This is popular with enthusiasts but if you wear it in public people might mistake you for the custodial staff.

I blind bought this based on reviews here and on that other site that starts with an "F," and I am very happy with my purchase! Furyo is a "funky" fragrance that's right up my alley; for reference, I also like Yatagan, Chypre-Siam, Quorum, and Kouros which Furyo immediately reminded me of. I see "powdery" in its note tree which would normally make me hesitate, but this is more "dusty" and I like it. Performance is really very impressive as is it's price point on Amazon. Recommend.

The other day at the Osmothèque, Jean Jacques made an interesting comment. (He's the perfumer at Caron). He said perfumers tend to work with a limited number of materials, often around 200; which explains why their output may have a particular style.

It isn't just the fact they might be reworking the same idea in another perfume (the variations on Feminité du Bois are an example of this) there is also the limited palette to take into account.
So for example, if you had two paintings of similar subjects, and they were both done in maroon and dark grey, there would clearly be a resemblance.

And this is the case with Furyo and Salvador Dali pour Homme; both composed by Thierry Wasser in his early days.
To put it in a nutshell: Furyo (1988) is the polite version of Dali pour Homme (1987). Furyo goes light on the stinky aromatics in Dali and brings the fruity - powdery - woody side to the fore.

If you ever tried Dali pour Homme and found it too much, Furyo is the answer.
It's also better. The drydown is superb.

I truly believe that my 30ml in its alluring ruby red bottle is all I will need for the REST OF MY LIFE. One spray, that's it, under the shirt, and I smell like utter depravity—I love it. This is a take no prisoners RAUNCH MONSTER.

The smell of joss sticks, nether and hind quarters, amyl nitrate, dark bedrooms, seedy bar bathrooms.

Needless to say, Furyo isn't recommended as an office scent. I suppose it depends though on what type of 'office' to which you report...

And it gets compliments. Go figure.
