    Wassup lahdat, Banzai!

    Fougeres to me either evokes old man, or sophisticated being, or just being overall blatant, in my experience. It's class in itself too.

    Wow, I didn't realize Cool Water, Eternity, Elements, Egoiste Platinum, Polo Sport, etc., etc., have been considered fougeres, since they've been renamed as fresh/aquatics, but in a sense they ARE fougeres! Like I said, great chart. THANKS!

    I have a weird pattern of falling out of love with fougeres. Grey Flannel, Herrera for Men and Xs are all scents that I was goo-goo-gaa-gaa Bonkers about for a time, then shortly later could not stand. Of course, as anyone with any kind of variety in their wardrobe knows, one goes through waves and phases, but with fougeres, the highs and lows seem to be particulalry intense.

    Grey Flannel is what I'm wearing today.....I think it's green, and fresh...reminds me of Green Peppers. But I note that Leffingwell chart classifies it as a chypre. Strange? Anyone else think it's more greeny than woodsy?

    Amazing these days, with the dexterity of notes and accords can a fragrance with properties of distinct phases of citrus, aromatic, then oriental for example, can be combined into one fragrance combination. The lines have blurred to create multifaceted compositions that are quite refreshing and somewhat entertaining!

    Chanel Allure is a great example of smooth transitions of fresh, aromatic, woodsy, and oriental in one scent.
