Fougere means fern…

…which makes it a fantasy category because ferns don't really have a fragrance. Fougere's are meant to smell like the forest floor and must have three ingredients: lavender, oakmoss and a coumarin note (found in tonka bean, hay, sweet clover, etc.). Often herbs like geranium, linalool rich rosewood and more assertive notes like patchouli are added but it's the careful consideration of the other ingredients that makes the fougere your own.


Fougere Royale

We'll sample many perfumes including the original Fougere Royale and Jicky - the vanguards of the classification - along with samples from some of the best natural perfumers working today. You'll be choosing from materials like tonka bean, sweet clover, concretes of lavender, geranium and clary sage, several lavender absolutes and essential oils, cedarmoss, cassia and ho wood. You'll have the opportunity to create two perfumes.
