What Is the Meaning Fougère Perfume?
Before explaining the meaning of "fougère", it is important to know the origin of this olfactory accord. The fougère accord was born in 1882, with the perfume Fougère Royale by Houbigant, which quickly made this olfactory family super popular and widely used, especially in men's perfumes. But, specifically, what does the word “fougère” mean? The term, taken from French, means “fern”, even though no fern note is present within fougère perfumes. The fougère accord, to be considered as such, must be composed of Lavender, Geranium, Oak Moss, Vetiver and Tonka Bean. With fougère perfumes, we have a very versatile olfactory family that lends itself to reinterpretation of the perfumer's taste, as long as the basic pattern is followed. The fougère notes create a refined, classic and reassuring scent, and can perfectly balance fresh and clean notes (Lavender, Geranium, Oakmoss) with warmer and soft ones (Vetiver, Tonka Bean). If from this description you still can't imagine what a fougère perfume smells like, let's do this: try closing your eyes, and think of a classic vintage London barbershop, where the fresh, clean scent of shaving tonics and shaving soaps fill the room. Alternatively, you can always buy a sample of one of our niche fougère scents ;)

We always want to reiterate that scents have no gender: although fougère perfumes are traditionally classified as “men's perfumes”, nothing prohibits anyone from wearing a fougère fragrance, regardless of whether it is women's or men's!
