This sampler will introduce you to Aromatic Fougere fragrances. According to Fragrantica: Fern is the anglification of the fragrance term fougère (fern in French), which is not exactly derived from nature (ferns have minimal scent themselves) but from an historical "accord" between lavender-oakmoss-coumarin which was devised to produce the mysterious note of a green, damp forest. The subcategory of aromatic fougères, adding spices and herbal notes to the classic structure, is perhaps the most populated masculine colognes category thanks to its pliability.
You will receive a 1/2ml sample (1ml sample vial filled half full) of each of the fragrances in this sampler. You also have the option of choosing a 1ml sampler.
