Fougere Family

Fougere is one of the most classical fragrance families, emblematic of masculine perfumes.

While Fougère is the French word for fern, in perfumery, a fern has nothing to do with this family. Instead, this family is named after "Fougère Royale", a fragrance launched in 1882 by Houbigant.
A blend of lavender, bergamot, geranium, vetiver, oakmoss, tonka bean, and woods, this accord was so unique that it inspired many creations that played, more or less, with the same raw materials. The result was the creation of the Fougère family.
Fougere Bergamot (inspired Versace’s Dylan Blue) and Gourgere Lavender (inspired by Prada’s Luna Rossa Carbon) are good examples for contemporary Fougère.
