Fougère Aromatique

“If God had given ferns a scent, they would smell like Fougère Royale.” -Paul Parquet, 1884

Fougère Royale, launched in 1884 by French perfume house Houbigant, heralded a revolution in perfumery. The first fragrance to incorporate a synthetic ingredient, it was also the first to strive above and beyond the mere recreation of natural scents and create something that had never been smelled before: the scent of ferns. The plants have no natural scent of their own, so Fougère Royale was built around the combination of oakmoss, lavender, and the smell of freshly cut grass, chiefly characteristic of the chemical coumarin. Originally refined from turpentine, coumarin is also found in clover, hay, and tonka beans (from which it is now mass-produced), which makes it possible to produce all-natural fougères.

To that end, we at Barrister and Mann took on the challenge to build just such a scent: an all-natural fougère made with oakmoss, tonka bean, and hay absolute, a smell akin to liquid sunshine. We combined these rich materials with the finest French lavender, then rounded out the base with fruity, earthy patchouli and musty, chocolate-y mushroom. From there, we continued to refined our work, eventually producing two distinctly different fragrances.

Fougère Aromatique is, as its name suggests, the aromatic version. We blended the fragrance with touches of lime, cardamom, and thyme as an homage to Invasion Barbare, Stephanie Bakouche’s remarkable aromatic masterpiece. The rest of the skeleton is constructed around geranium, clary sage absolute, violet leaf, and various other natural oils to produce a full-power, teeth-out scent completely divested of any resemblance to the prim little English fripperies that followed the original. Rich, gleamingly spicy, and utterly without pretense, Fougère Aromatique is a reminder of what it means to carry yourself with style

    It smells great, the scent lasts a good long while (even through and after a workout), and it only takes a single spray meaning the 50ml bottle will last a long time.
