Fougère confuse
A sober suited fougère; dark, rich and well made; it’s like Tsar after hours with a glass of Burgundy.
Now, to my mind this would have been fine as it is. But formality is not the Mugler way, and along with the peppery-wood and dry coumarin a slug of amber creeps in, softening and sweetening and throwing it into confusion.
Is this a formal fougère or a sickly Aromatic Amber?
I think it’s trying to be both ... but one thing I am sure of, it’s not for me.
I prefer my formal to be formal and my Amber to be fuzzy, not my boundaries.

Welcome to the Design Forest 3.0
Well, we know: more or less everything we smell in perfumes is chemistry, molecules copied from nature that fool our brains. Most of the time, fragrance artists strive to be so good at recreating nature that the illusion is perfect. In Fougère Furieuse, it is not the illusion of nature that is perfect, but nature exaggerated to perfection. Jean-Christophe Hérault, Créateur of several Les Exceptions fragrances, has truly created here the perfect DESIGNWALD!

Upon entering this 3-D animation of forest, a mélange of bergamot and rose geranium, green spicy with a slight floral stem note surrounds me. This disappears in favor of a more clearly empo swinging bergamot. I penetrate deeper into the forest, its aura sweetening, gumming up and souring at the same time, marvelling at lush "artificial flowers and neon moss "*. Over hours, the sharpness of the olfactory impression slowly fades, it becomes softer, more delicate, more ethereal.... Most beautiful is this fragrance after 18 hours, my skin feels as if dusted with delicate green powder...

Everything about Fougère Furieuse is waftingly artificially overdosed, a synthetic fragrance at its best, perfectly suited for an olfactorically enhanced 3-D animated cinema screening of "Alice in Wonderland"! Kind of fascinating - though not my world.

Christmas run
Today I was thinking about my former running group. Our trainings were always very hard, but I always enjoyed them very much. Our annual highlight: the Christmas run. On Christmas Day we went up into the morning to one of the highest mountains our region has to offer. We always covered about 20 kilometres at a fast pace. And the route was beautiful. There was a section where we had to go downhill on a still wet meadow that was due to the early morning. Below we crossed a small wooden bridge and after a few meters we arrived in the forest. Over a Trail we came on a firm forest way. Before the mountain waited for us, we went through a residential area and then only uphill. The higher we were, the denser the forest became. What started as a mixed forest below, ended in a dark fir forest. At the top we quickly took a group photo and down again. But that was not all: To celebrate the day, we always stopped at friends in the surrounding communities, praised the Christmas tree and were rewarded with a fine glass of schnapps. From the orchard meadow, of course
I find all of this in this Mugler fragrance, which I like, similar to Over the Musk. I smell the moss, the dewy meadow, the forest and also a little bit of fruit brandy arrives in my nostrils. Later the scent gets a bit warmer and invites to a cosy cuddle in front of the Christmas tree. Whether with or without a schnapps, the reader can decide for himself. A somewhat synthetic note, which unfortunately increases in intensity in the base, makes the fragrance a bit maggoty at the back. My guess is Ambroxan again. Here, however, it's not built in so strongly that it would annoy me. The scent gets a solid 8th from me.

I see him superficially on the masculine side. If you like fragrances like Gentle Fluidity Silver or Green Irish Tweed, you might also like this exclusive Mugler, which is a bit more reserved overall. By the way, the fragrance is not only suitable for the cold season.

Many thanks to Floyd, who probably had the right instinct that this is another one who will start my natural head cinema
