    Default Fougère Marine

    Just discovered this lately. Really nice aromatic fougère but can someone tell me where the sea is in there?

    I yet have to find a mariner fragrance that makes justice to its name. The closest I found was Kenzo. I work in marine environment perhaps I am anal about that "right marine note". I have not tried Fougere Marine but it wont surprised me if you are still wondering where is the sea in there.

    I felt the sea was there, loud and clear, but NOT in the opening, rather later. The opening starts out very much an aromatic fougère, but a marine character come out later and prominently on my skin.

    Sometimes the sea smells like the way a foghorn sounds.

    go straight to the mids..take a left and then a right and go right ahead till you hit the beach

    honestly, i totally agree with you...the smell of being at sea is not really prominent..it;s more like having mineral water in a deserted island. lovely scent.

    the only ones that have captured the smell of sea (of what i have tested) are Erolfa, Beth Terry Mare and Bulgari Aqua...

    Bvlgari aqua was ruined by that pepper note, totally unnecessary
    The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.
