Another gem !! i treat this like a hard to get 80's classic as its that well made . Get some because its cheap & before its reformulated or d/c .

Quite franky, a revelation!

I bought this on the promise of similarity to Sergio Tacchini by Sergio Tacchini but found it much better.

Considering I got this on Ebay for < £20 (GBP), I wasn't really expecting anything special but on my skin, it simply exploded with initial floral notes and massive projection.

The dry down to woody/herbal/tobacco notes was very linear but the longevity on my skin was astonishing.

I spritzed this on at 7:00 in the morning but could easily still smell it on my skin at 10:00p.m.

Under normal circumstances, I would expect to pay £75+ for a fragrance with this sillage and longevity.

A definite keeper!

وقتی وارد بازار ایران شد میخش رو محکم کوبید که تا چندین سال هیچ عطری نتونست جاش رو بین عام تصاحب کنه.
تا اینکه سر و کله لالیک سیاه پیدا شد
لالیک سیاه جانشین خوبی بود و صد البته حرفه ای تر و بهتر و حالا باید منتظر موند که این بوی خشن و نامهربان کی از بین

امروز که ازش زدم ، البته الان دیگه میشه دیروز ، کلی کیف کردم . گرم ، پخش بو عالی ، ماندگاری خیلی خوب ، بسیار مناسب برای هوای سرد . بوی مردانه و اصیل . جنس بوی اوپن از جنس بوی باربری بریت و زیر آیکونه . اولش زنجبیلی یا ادویه ای و گرم و کمی صابونی با یه کم ته بوی شیرین بعد شیرینیش میره و بیشتر تلخ میشه و تا یه مدتی خطیه در ادامه باز تغییر میکنه و هر چه بیشتر تلخ و تلخ تر میشه و دیگه تغییر نمیکنه . وقتی تثبیت شد دودی میشه . خیلی خوبه . از قیمتش فراتره . بوش مدرن نیست ، کلاسیک و یه کم قدیمیه . اما در عین حال هیچ وقت به نظرم قدیمی نمیشه . دوست داشتنی و خاطرانگیزه . ا

Finally....Just got another bottle after many years. This is gorgeous! A very potent "old school" floral, soapy tobacco fragrance. Lasts and projects excellently.

The sillage is really lovely. As someone said, it IS a little like Sung Homme, except Open has that lovely tobacco note and mellow spices.

Delightful product from the great Roger & Gallet and definitely in my top ten!

بعد از سال ها دوباره بوی اوپن . تازه گرفتمش ، هنوز مثل چند سال قبل خوبه . واقعاً خوبه . خیلی دوسش دارم . یادش بخیر بابا میزد و منم که اونموقع بچه بودم خوشم میومد و میزدم . یادمه بابام چند بار داشتش هم پنجاه میلشو داشت هم صد میلشو . فک کنم یه بارم خودم پنجاه میلشو برا خودم خریدم . گرم و متین و باوقار . ساده و دوست داشتنی . واسه من از هر نظر خوبه . همه جوره باهاش حال می کنم . به نظرم هیچ وقت قدیمی نمیشه . یه چیز جالب در موردش اینه که اگه تو همین سایت سرچ کنید " اوپن " فقط همین یه عطرو به این اسم میشناسه . تکه . ا

Polarizing scent of the times when the dry / spicy combo was in fashion - Yatagan comes to mind as a closely related one, as well as Jacomo de Jacomo in its persona. I have the impression that perfumistas will praise it while non-perfumistas will bash it (nothing wrong with that, please, don't misunderstand me) - well, not necesarily, I know of one, now a niche-scent blogger, that found it horrible - which, BTW, I cannot blame as having a bad taste when it comes to fragrances.

The reason behind this is quite simple: it feels like an aromatic fougere of the classic kind, this meaning it will be felt as bold due to the top notes, fooling the wearer because the mid and base notes are much mellower, of the kind of soapy-powdery kind, which is the best part of the blend.

You guess right: for the ones cherishing classic ones or for the young ones looking for originality among modern-day templates.

For the rest, the smell of old people.

Another old school perfume with a slightly bitter lavender citrus opening and a soapy tobacco woody dry down. it is very linear after the initial notes and that is a good thing because the wonderful dry down goes on forever. from the same family tree as quorum, Polo Green, Paco Rabanne PH, Boss No.1,etc so if you like any of those, you will appreciate this as well. This is a simple, understated masculine fragrance and I like it a lot.

8/10

vintage scents, plastic part on top of the bottle and cap make OPEN look very cheap, citrus opened gone in 5 minutes and soapy smell call the back old days . Another nice scents for 30+ male.

what a composition is this!
soapy, lavender, sage , citrussy feel at the opening.
very lovely woody dry base, almost burned woody with lavender soap.
very refined
longevity is very good 8-10 hours
silage a good 6-8 hours

van gils classic, has the same smell, but is younger and more wearable

What I get here are flash backs of Antaues, Kiton and Havana. A great scent. It's like when I prepared French dinners and could smell the freshly cut sage and thyme on my hands for hours afterwards. Open is that burst of herbs. Very genuinly done. Amazing you can get 100 ml of it for 40 euro.

THIS is Different from the other usual scents out there, I don't see the comparisons to Quorum and such.

It definitely comes across as a more mature gentleman's cologne. To me it starts off as rather acrid but if given time it mellows out......a little.

Why a "little"?.........well it is still a rather DRY and herbal scent with some citrus thrown in.

It does have good longevity and you should not have to worry about wearing something that other gents at the party might be wearing.

If you're interested in trying this, get ready for a super DRY scent! Look at the notes: sage, thyme, vetiver, lemon, lavender. Wearing this could dehydrate you.

Although it's got great sillage and longevity (12+ hours), I don't find Open very powerful. It's light, herbal and very transparent, not rich or heavy at all. It smells like a soap scented with sage and cloves, and it has a great tart, woody drydown with the vetiver and tobacco in the base.

If you're a fan of stuff like Equipage or Jacomo de Jacomo, you'll probably really like Open. I love it.

MY RATING: 8.5/10

This is a master of woody scents. I bought this blind on first spray I wasn’t sure if this is for me. But I was wrong the woody and spicy notes started kicking in and I was happy that I got this EDT. It’s really for a man, very masculine, I don’t think this is retro this is all time fragrance. I still smell this after 10 hours.

My ratings out of 10-:

Longevity – 9.5
Scent -9.5
Silage 9

This is a great woody aromatic fragrance. The spices are really nice. This fragrance is not for everyone it’s kind of love or hate fragrance. I suggest try before you buy. The longevity is excellent, projection and silage is very good. Drydown is very nice. I am not sure if any one below 25 yrs will use it. But yes my score is 8.5/10

A retro soapy monster that definitely seems to get its inspiration from the 1970s. Very similar in my opinion to Sung Homme and Quorum in its unashamedly masculine dry down, and just as inexpensive to buy as either. I love it!!

This is a very good EDT.
One of those you want to smell and smell and smell...
Roger & Gallet is an old house coming from 19 century. If someone knows something about perfumes, were them.
In our days is dificult to find because L'Oreal bought the company in 2008.
Sometimes it happens - a bunch of idiots comeout and buy a good company just because. They can do it, they do it.
They do it not to promote and continue the work but to kill all the work.
And everything ends just because...
I miss this very much.
It is possible to find but not like some years ago when it could be found anywhere.

I have "open" in my collection, It's a good scent .. but I don't want it to be attached to my character.
I didn't find it a long-lasting scent.

Once again, a blind purchase that gave me a huge satisfaction.

This scent is made for active and dominant men. I can go further: Open was idealized for men who have "open mind" to the world and its passions.

Its fragrance is very powerful, refined and virile. It remains on the skin for more than 6 hours with the same intensity. Its freshness - resulting of Amalfi Lemon and sage notes - along with the dry notes of vetiver and tobacco make this cologne a true champion in the compliments category.

When I wear this one, I have the absolute certainty that I become the most confident and elegant man in the world.
And, of course, the best for the last: just a few people know it, which makes it a little bit more exclusive!

Filling the opening is Spices, Green, and Resinous woods, with a zesty Citrus background. When I first tried Open it was surprisingly potent to me, I was expecting it to be an Eau de Cologne strength. It is a full-bodied, sharp and rich EDT, with excellent sillage.

Moss, Vetiver, Sandalwood, and Amber contribute to the scent's masculine soapy overtone that lingers throughout the heart and base notes. The soapiness is even present during the opening. There is a very light peppery sharpness in the background that lasts for the life of the scent.

This was my first Roger & Gallet fragrance and I was impressed. I find I am reaching for Open more and more as a regular daily spritz. Energizing. Very well done and long lasting.
