Flawless. - Cutting. - Tantalizing.
Yes: The above attributes describe the Fougere d'Argent in an almost perfect way.
What follows is a detailed declaration of my love to a newly discovered flame.

Zunächzt I had this fragrance absolutely not at all on the screen, however, I had still found a voucher from a Swiss Parfumerie, which would soon expire, so I came into the happy situation and of necessity "had" to buy another fragrance. Another back-up bottle of another fragrance I did not want, so I briefly read through a few reviews of Fougere d'Argent, which at that time just happened to be in action (Dt.: offer) and then struck at an unbeatable price.

My expectations? None. Beau de Jour with Spearmint note. Or something like that.

When I finally held the fragrance in my hands, came the big test and the even bigger amazement:

OPENING: Flawless.
Tangerine, ginger, lavender. But such a perfect match that I floated in the 7th fragrance heaven. The individual notes would actually be too "punchy" and too aggressive for me, in the Fougere d'Argent, however, these notes balance each other out in a beautiful, harmonious way, never try to drown each other out, but give each other an insanely elegant and neat character.
Also, at this point I already perceive a distinct spearmint note, which actually reminds me of an American chewing gum, however, this spearmint note only underlines the manderine, the ginger and the lavender and does not drown them out at any time.

Then between OPENING and HEART, something happens that I would describe as perfection:
Imagine a picnic on a mowed flower meadow - around you nothing but pure alpine air, the air is hot and dry and you take in all the herbs and the mown hay on this meadow. Dryness, flowery, soothing herbs and a hint of mint. The lavender still clearly present, the mandarin already withdrawn and the ginger only perceptible in the distant distance. Delightful.

In the HEART then the twist: Cutting.
To the above-mentioned fragrance notes joins after about two hours, a note that I suspected somewhere to know. I thought at first of Sauvage, but that would be too trivial. No, not Sauvage. But something is there, which makes me love the fragrance even more at this point.
Over and over again, a quite delightful note pushes through here. I can't help myself: I love you. It's all warm woods, perfectly matched, never too aggressive or uncouth, but classic, classy and accompanied by the floral lavender and cistus. Cutting. Cutting. Like the bespoke Tom Ford suit for a gentleman with perfectly styled hair and an even more perfect three-day beard.

A true gentleman, a rock in a tailored suit. Never loud, never aggressive, never too overpowering and certainly not a screamer. But an alpha male to the core.
Fougere d'Argent is a statement of elegance, of style and of aplomb.

The base: provocative.
In the BASIS, the fragrance remains beautifully linear, the dry herbal hay regains dominance, joined by woody notes and a delightful twist of cuddly lavender and fresh cistus.
Quite remotely, one could recognize parallels to the discontinued Beau de Jour from the Private Blend line, but this requires a lot of imagination.
Both last about the same length and both drive this beautiful barbershop program, which Tom Ford provides through these fragrances with a modern and contemporary twist, making it again a wearable trend for real gentlemen. However, they differ immensely in terms of sillage: the Beau de Jour is clearly more present, also a bit louder and perhaps also one to two levels stronger in terms of scent tail.
The Fougere d'Argent is quieter, less loud and after a shorter time already much closer to the skin, which makes it in my eyes the absolute favorite for the date and also in the office: At a distance, you feel only a hint of this beautiful fragrance, but this seducer knows how to make the audience want to come closer to you. And once below the 50 cm mark, it draws everyone under its spell. And with that, he has exactly what so many other fragrances fail at: he is provocative without having to push himself to the fore, a charmer who doesn't shout, no, who doesn't even say anything. But convinces with his sovereignty, his elegance and his charisma. He enters the room and everyone turns to look at him. But not because of his shouting. But simply because of his aura and his presence. At the same time he is provocative, radiates attraction and dominance - and that without even having to say a word.

Am I in love? - Yes.
Can I classify why this fragrance is also discontinued according to some English-speaking forums? - No, not even close.
Any last words? - I love you, baby.

Sincerely,
Your Carpintero.

Huge Love!
Fougère d’Argent was created by Olivier Gillotin and Linda Song. Top notes are Lavender, Ginger and Mandarin Orange; middle notes are Akigalawood and Labdanum; base note is Coumarin.

A slightly floral, warm and soft spicy amber fragrance with a classic 80s backbone accord with lavender. Sexy, sophisticated and modern... I love it!

A sweet dry vibe carried on a platform of cumin and lavender. It's like a toned-down LDDM but not as warm or complex. Quite good though.
