Uomo Laura Biagiotti for men “Back to the Future”
My biggest areas of learning right now are fougeres and am admittedly a novice. I find fougeres available in modern form really miss on a lot of points than the ones I have been featuring. Nobody called me out on it, but I gave a 2019 fougere high marks. A couple weeks after that I was able to go through some old formulations and just stopped talking about fougeres all together. Six months later and fifteen new bottles in the collection I feel I can at least be a part of the conversation. I wish a couple of you guys had videos to talk about these and do them real justice, the two main guys I know of on YouTube I have absorbed there content and they really don’t update frequently. It kind of speaks to the types of person that where these. Busy, successful, professional. At least an observation from people who post about them.
Fougere I would say are really about projection and aromatics. A lot of us are always putting are wrists up to our nose to smell as close as possible, definitely me. But with these perfumes and especially the one featured we are not to smell close. I find it is about spraying as wide of mist as possible on pulse points and the next six – ten hours you are literally a scent bubble for the world and the two feet of space around you. Not just a scent bubble but one of the best structured scent pyramids known to scent. Aromatics of french herbs, rich florals, backed by dense greens. Way more complicated than that sentence, but I am glad I went back in time to learn what has been done. It only makes me want to continue in this time period.
This is one of the classiest wears out there that has light notes of incense and leather.
Compared to modern perfumes this would be loud and in your face, but compared to ones from it’s era I find it to wear very light and pleasing changing up notes at every whiff.
