    Question Fougere Bengale - Parfum d'Empire - Your Thoughts ?

    Has anyone tried this ?
    The notes are quite similar to those of Eau Noire. Any similarities ?
    Is this hard to find ?....I had never heard of this house.
    Thanks for your help.

    I own a large bottle David and I love it. In fact I have the entire line. Well made fragrances IMO. The limited edition Musc Tonkin is to die for.

    I like many of the PdE scents. Good quality for the price with longevity and sillage.

    I adore Cuir Ottoman and Ambre Russe.

    Sadly, Fougere Bengale did not work for me. The curry spice scent is what ruined it for me.

    If you like Dior Eau Noire or HdP 1740 you'll like Fougere Bengale. The immortelle note is out and center on Fougere Bengale. To me its bottle worthy just haven't bought it yet.

    Cuir Ottoman is a very nice one from this house. Very smooth leather.

    Musc Tonkin was only limited to 1000 bottles worldwide. I had a bottle and sold it.

    Immortelle is a tricky note on my skin (although I love Goodsir's Cuir velours, so go figure). It can turn into maple syrup, and basically, Fougere bengale is like a fenugreek-curry-maple syrup bomb on my skin... I thought I loved it at first, but the immortelle note just killed it for me, since it became overly sweet. Nevertheless it is a well constructed scent, and I admire it, but it just didn't work on my skin. My wife loves it, for example.

    Liked it a lot but it is too close to Annick Goutal Sables for me to have both.

    Equistrius is a great iris scent, and Cuir Ottoman is probably my favourite leather/amber perfume. YMMV

    You must like immortelle in order to like FB. I bought Eau Noir when it launched in London, and loved it. The first impression i had with FB was, yes, Eau Noir, with tobacco thrown into the mix.

    The only one I own is Ambre Russe. Great scent. I sampled Cuir Ottoman and thought it was pretty good. I am curious about Fougere Bengale as well. All thoughts would be appreciated.
