West Coast Shaving Eau de Parfum, Fougere
AN HERBACEOUS FOREST SCENT
Our new soaps and splashes are top shelf. When we set out to create our next generation shaving soaps and creams, we wanted phenomenal performance & value coupled with fantastic scents. With the help of some amazing artisans, we’ve nailed it. In fact, we loved our scents so much we wanted to offer them in a stronger profile to complete your groom. Introducing our eau de Parfums.
The scents of these grooming requisites are inspired by the “scent wheel” (developed by Michael Edwards over 30 years ago). We have crafted four of the most popular fragrance categories: Fougere, Cologne, Chypre, and Oriental fragrance, along with a fifth aroma that plays on the traditional barbershop. Check out our take on these classic perfume categories. A parfum is stronger in longevity because of a higher concentration of oils so you can expect it to go with you into your day.
A fougere (fern in French) fragrance is a perfume category created by Paul Parquet, owner of Houbigant Parfume, in 1882. His Fougère Royale launched the entire category of this “fantasy scent” (ferns are essentially scentless) which allows the imagination of the perfumer to create their own representation of a what-scent-fern-would-have-if-fern-had-a-scent aroma. Traditionally, it boasts sweet top notes (usually lavender and geranium) with a deeper base of oakmoss and coumarin. The result is an aroma that is woody, mossy, with strong green notes. We’ve respected the classic notes of lavender, geranium, and coumarin in our West Coast Shaving Fougere, but we’ve created an “aromatic fougere” with the added complexity of juniper, cypress, rosemary, galbanum, & woody, earthy notes of cedarwood and patchouli. Imagine brushing up against a bush as you enter a forest, the bright, herbaceous green hits your nose, but it is quickly replaced by the darker scents of the forest as you move deeper into the trees.
