Fougère Royale

Fougère Royale

Reengineered from its 1882 regal compound to compliment modern rigors and landscapes, Fougère Royale retains its discriminating, elegant, noble, refined pulse and its pleasant, pastoral beauty.

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..
