About Les Exceptions : Fougère Furieuse

The quiet strength of the forest floor is thrown into harmonious turmoil in FOUGERE FURIEUSE. Sensual aromatic and woody notes of the fougère family, geranium, oak moss, coumarin and bergamot, are provoked by orange, neroli and amber to create a furiously playful and exhilarating sensorial experience. Sexy. Exhilarating. Daring.

Reviews of Les Exceptions : Fougère Furieuse

Continuing on my exploration of the "Les Exceptions" series from Thierry Mugler, I now examine Fougere Furieuse....

The start is a strong mossy and woody mix. It seems to swirl in a vortex of natural notes from deep in a forest: Pine, oakmoss, cedar, juniper, injected with a lemony-fresh dose from the neroli and bergamot. A slight emergence of amber warms things up a bit, but the scent remains in an aromatic motion that is remarkable!

This one operates in a similar way as the original A*Men, not so much in the perceived notes, but in the whirlwind of potent ingredients that seems to "move"! Nay, this one is its own experience and identity, a restless yet tastefully crafted EdP that tilts a hat to the powerhouse fougeres of times past and present.

I would recommend this for men and for more formal occasions. Could a lady wear it? Only if she is adventurous and ready to put on this "active" natural experience, willing to suspend potential perceptions of a masculine scent. YOU be the judge. :-)

A little sweet, mostly soapy and kinda green. Reminds me of a spa or expensive soap/spa products. A very pleasant and refined daytime scent that feels a little more dressed up than casual but should be versatile enough for most situations.

I get very good projection and longevity that lasts all day. Excellent performance overall.

A mild thumbs-up for this one. As has been noted, it is understated (surprising from this house). Classic fougere ingredients, conveying a soapy, mossy green chord. The amber here has a slight leathery tang -- I don't entirely care for it but it is a good note and many would like it. Fougere fans should check this out.

Good stuff.

Fougere Furieuse is not at all furious, but rather discreet and elegant. It's sort of a modern take on a fougere style, a 'nu-gere' without lavender. The aromatic aspect is subdued, with the emphasis on a clean, crisp accord of geranium and citrus. Mint is absent, unlike Geranium pour Monsieur. There's a subtle hint of orange in the mid-phase. The dry down is a touch of amber and tonka, with the barest hint of moss, with the perfect calibration of restrained sweetness. On me I find the sillage to be discreet but consistent with occasional wafts, and duration is about six hours.

Fougere Furieuse is nothing bold, outrageous, eccentric or perhaps innovative. However, it is exquisitely crafted and clearly among the best specimens of its genre. It's contemporary, substantive, fresh and completely under the radar. Maybe it's not shape shifting, but it's definitely mood lifting. Thumbs up!
