FOUGÈRE ROYALE, PARFUM - BERGAMOT, LAVENDER & GERANIUM
The perfectly-blended perfume is redolent of green, fragrant sedge, hardy foliage, and delicately-curled fronds of shaded, dense, moist woodlands. Sweet vernal grasses suggest the freshly-released essences of trampled, crushed, trodden, dewy verdure, with an intense hint of newly-mown hay.
With a well-tuned nose and an impeccable vision, House of Houbigant French perfumer, Paul Parquet, laid the foundation of modern perfumery in 1882 with the in-house creation of Fougère Royale. The meticulous, genius, courtly construction evocative of cool, lush, green, fern-like woodland foliage was a genre-defining fougère, and has since become the ubiquitous standard behind the world's most enduring men's fragrance classics.
Fougère Royale’s nuanced scent composition opens with a vibrant, sparkling cocktail Bergamot, lavander and Mediterranean Herbs.
A redolent heart follows, where the floral-spicy "Rondeletia" accord is revealed through rich geranium nuances and warm spices. A floral intermezzo showcases rare rose essences and absolutes, spiked by pepper, cinnamon and carnation.
Finally, a grand finale of earthy, ambery and woody harmonies, where moss notes join a sensual patchouli theme enriched by warm coumarinic undertones of tonka beans and clary sage absolute..
