Bracken Man fragrance notes

Reviews of Bracken Man

A perfectly respectable, well made Fougere.
I prefer the drier, nuanced, soapier, Dusita Issara approach.

Bracken just keeps getting better every time I wear it! It’s like your freshly mowed grass just got sprayed down, but the hose was filled with a fresh soapy, cinnamon clove mixture! Clean, spicy, grass....yuuuuummm!!

The opening smells like a soapy, winter holiday memory, maybe even a little medicinal. Cool green (cypress) notes mixed with the cloves and nutmeg give it the North American "holidays" feel. Wife said I smelled like pine cones, but not in a bad way, ha!

Not a favorite of mine but it is nice, clean and pleasing. Feels more dressed up than casual but otherwise, should be versatile any different temperatures because of the cool, cleanness. Also, seems pretty linear on me after the brighter top notes fade off.

I get good projection during the first 4-5 hours. The skin scent lasts all workday.

Genre: Fougère

What I smell when I wear Bracken Man is a rather traditionally-styled fougère, complete with lavender, coumarin, and bergamot. When it first came out, it occurred to me that along with Chanel’s Boy, MDCI’s Le Barbier de Tangier, and Dusita’s Issara, Bracken represented a tentative rekindling of commercial interest in the traditional fougère genre. Following the apparently favorable reception of the more recent Erawan, I remain cautiously hopeful. After thirty-some-odd years during which the vast majority of new fougères have seemed compelled to quote some facet of Cool Water, a return to form of sorts might be welcome.

That said, Bracken Man is perhaps my least favorite of these revivalist fougères so far. I enjoy it well enough in isolation, but when I compare it with some of its brethren, most notably the MDCI and the Chanel, it feels comparatively loud and harsh. A welcome addition, then, but to my mind not necessarily the most compelling example of its emerging sub-genre.

For the first half hour it is indistinguishable (to my nose, at least) from Houbigant Fougere Royale. It then takes a nosedive into skin scent intensity on me, thus my low rating for sillage/projection. Drydown is linear and more powdery than HFR, but there is a modernizing ozone/aquatic note in the early drydown about 90 minutes in, which then fades into the powder. Blind buy based on friend's recommendation but I think HFR is the better value if you like this kind of thing.

So I received Bracken Man from a swap and this is what I think:

Bracken is just that....fern, green, fern, and more green! I think someone else might have mentioned this already, this is Sunshine Man minus the sweetness and vanilla.

I'm a fan of Sunshine Man, in fact I think it is a lovely wonderful fragrance however, I'm not sure what Amouage was aiming for here.
Maybe to bring back the mature style of fragrance with a twist, don't know! But what I get is a dry soapy woodsy but lemony, citrusy fragrance that is lite yet pungent (and that's with one spray...image more). As the fragrance dries down, it remains linear and somewhat sharp.

In the dry down, it remains a green scent with a barbershop feel in the end. I am more into oriental fragrances with a hint of sweetness, therefore this is not really my cup of tea. (This is not like the green in Original Vetiver, however more along the lines of Creed's Bois du Portugal even Polo [green 90's ] bottle...a toned down Polo-and more modern Creed's Bois du Portugal.) If you like those, you will be a fan of this!

The wife's first thought, "smells like something my grandmother use to wear." Not sure if Amouage was going for that, however maybe this is hinting at the mature essence of the scent. As the fragrance continues to macerate, she gives it another smell and says, "its meh." Well, there you have it!

Overall, a nice fragrance for what it is; artistic, linear and green. Not something I think I will keep, however for the right person who is into green fragrances, this will be a gem!
