Many claim that the fougere is the greatest genre of men's fragrances and is typically defined as having a top note of lavender and basenotes of oakmoss and coumarin (tonka/vanilla).
The aromatic fougere is a derivative of this genre including spice and woods notes to the above mentioned notes of the basic fougere.
I've been drawn to this genre lately and discovered many classic gems.
The first of this genre, is claimed to be Paco Rabanne's Pour Homme released in 1973 and aromatics and variations of the aromatic are still made today.
Which one is your favorite? I may have to give a slight edge to Azzaro, but I really like all of these quite a bit.
