"If God gave ferns a scent, they would smell like Fougere Royal"
- Paul Parquet, perfumer, 1882.
Fougere Royale is elegant, noble, and refined, and a truly iconic fragrance.
This iconic perfume was first introduced in 1882. Created by the legendary French house of Houbigant, Fougère Royal has completely revolutionized the world of perfumes.
The fragrance was the first-ever “fougère” perfume created, and it established a completely new fragrance family, which rightfully remains the most popular one in men's fragrances.
Fougère Royale opens sparkling and uplifting. Aromatic Mediterranean herbs, lavender, and citruses lead you to the green, warm, spicy, and floral heart. And the symphony doesn't end there! Fougere Royal closes with warm trails of patchouly, ambery notes, and tonka beans.
Reengineered after centuries, and perfectly blended; Fougere Royal still maintains its finest qualities.

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.
