I was thinking about this last night. I first noticed this construction in Everlast Original 1910. There is the lavender and tonka, as well as some geranium and a touch of spice. However, the fougere element is barely perceptible. Instead, the grapefruit is very strong, with leather and tonka predominating in the base. The geranium is not weak, but like the tonka, doesn't seem bound to the lavender, as is the case with "classic" fougeres. Was there an earlier example of this idea?
