In 1882 werd deze geur gecreëerd door het legendarische parfumhuis Houbigant, door parfumeur Paul Parquet. Nu in de 21ste eeuw heeft deze klassieke compositie nog steeds zijn bestaansrecht als verfijnde herengeur.
Het is de naamgever van een totale geurfamilie Fougère. Een aromatische gesoigneerde geur op basis van bergamot, lavendel, geranium, kaneel, roos, amber, patchouli en eikenmos.
"If God gave ferns a scent, they would smell like Fougère Royal" - parfumeur Paul Parquet (1882).
Paul Parquet's originele formulering werd met zorg, kennis en kunde aangepast aan de huidige wetgeving en beschikbaarheid van grondstoffen door parfumeur Rodrigo Flores-Roux.
Quote Geurengoeroe: "De wedergeboorte van de mannengeur, die de parfumwereld voorgoed veranderde."
Houbigant is one of the oldest French fragrance houses, which is still fully in business and as ever run by the family! The reason that this company is and has been successful for so long already is due to the 200 year old tradition of French elegance combined with the desire to innovate.
In 1775, the royals and nobles in Paris were already charmed by the fragrances created by perfumer Jean-Francois Houbigant, among which was Marie-Antoinette, queen of France and wife of Louis XVI.
Following that, Houbigant was appointed in 1829 to be the perfumer of Her Royal Highness Princess Adelaide d'Orleans and mother of King Louis-Philippe. In 1838, the French fragrance house even acquired the license of Perfumer for Her Majesty, Queen Victoria of England, and in 1890 Csaar Alexander III appointed Houbigant as perfumer for the imperial Russian court.
Nowadays, Houbigant is situated in Paris and their perfumes are composed in Grasse in Southern France, thé fragrance garden of the world. Houbigant created his first works there 200 years ago. Piece by piece iconic classics: (re)discover, for example, the elegant Fougere Royale or the romantic Quelques Fleurs.
