Fougere Royale by Houbigant

“An updated classic that is perfect for stylish, unapologetic, masculine guys.”

The name Houbigant may resonate for some, as legend has it that in 1793, as Marie-Antoinette approached the guillotine; she had 3 vials of the great perfumer’s fragrances tucked beneath her corset to give her strength. Fast forward to 2011, and Roja Dove and Rodrigo Flores-Roux have collaborated to recreate the revolutionary scent Fougere Royale.

Here at The Grooming Guide we particularly appreciate a good Fougere (woody, mossy and bittersweet) fragrance. From its opening notes of citrus oils and florals, through to a spicy floral heart, and finally to its earthy base notes, Fougere Royale is a resolutely modern take on Houbigants pioneering original.

Verdict: An updated classic, perfect for stylish, unapologetic, masculine guys.

Price: EDT- £105 100ml, Parfum- £375 100ml.
