The Fougère is considered to be one of freshest and most aromatic to exist within perfumery.
The Fougère family is a style not dissimilar to the Chypré, but is usually far more aromatic. It gave rise to both the Chypré and Oriental styles. It is so closely related to the Chypré that some people refer to it as an extension of that accord, however, its pronounced lavender and geranium facets give it quite a different olfactory feel.
The classical Fougère structure is based upon lavender, oakmoss and coumarin with bergamot, geranium and vetiver.
