... hmm i don't know..
A classic Fougère, no doubt.
Everything has been said about Houbigant, a traditional house that doesn't have to prove itself - the range of some beautiful fragrances is too wide, Paul Parquet wasn't the first perfumer to create a Fougère fragrance.
But even if he was the creators of Fougères, and so was the House of Houbigant - so to speak the pioneers, this one is not mine
Coumarin is now most present or better said the scaffold in Fougère fragrances.
How about this candidate here?
To be honest, it makes me a little desperate, not quite desperate, but we're not talking about a rating in the upper range here either, but rather the question of whether it moves in the midfield or rather under it.
From Fougèredüften this one is really not my first choice here.
Quite nice, quite ok, and if there was a sample lying around, I'd use that sample before I didn't wear anything.
But it's not a scent I'd buy. It's not bad, but it doesn't suit my taste.
The fragrance starts clearly with lemon and bergamot. These two substances can always be smelled throughout the entire process, as bergamot is also one of Fougères' constituents. The bergamot seems slightly oily to me, almost beautifully vinegary, which gives the whole to me exactly what does not make it a great fragrance for me - well noticed, for me.
In addition to the coumarin or maybe it's what I don't like-what this light hay note gives is also not mine in the connection to all the other fabrics.
Cumin underlines the whole thing with oak moss.
Only most Fougères smell like classic aftershave, which leads to the clearly masculine tendency/ astringency.
Aftershave for those who can't really imagine what Fougères is like.
After 8 hours the fragrance still has a nice drydown.
That's why it gets a reasonable score for sillage and durability.
Often a comparison to Drakkar Noir is drawn... hm... I don't think so because I don't have Drakkar Noir in my nose anymore.
It's a solid fragrance that you CAN wear but don't have to wear.
Here there are often only two camps, those who love him and those who hate him.
I'm so in the middle.
In fact, on my skin more than 10 hrs.
Sillage: quiet but perceptible.
Unfortunately not my thing at all.
