Fougère d’Argent is a bold reimagining of the classic fougère, a structure that traditionally revolves around lavender, oakmoss, and coumarin. With oakmoss no longer available, Tom Ford has re-worked the model in a provocative manner, substituting moss with Akigalawood, a Givaudan captive derived from patchouli that has a wonderfully spicy, woodsy bitterness. What emerges from Ford’s confident handling is a scent that smells truly masculine – earthy, herbaceous, and rich, with a radiantly spiced muskiness that billows around its wearer.
If there’s a scent that sums up everything that is great about old-school-meets-modern-cool masculine grooming, then it’s probably Fougère d’Argent. The aromatic topnotes of lavender, ginger, and citrus notes give off a formal Savile Row vibe, with the sort of soapy, minty freshness one expects to emanate from a gentleman wearing an impeccably-tailored suit. Akigalawood stands in most competently for the traditional oakmoss, its spicy, mossy sharpness softened by the buttery labdanum amber tucked away into a corner. What marks out this fougere as a particularly modern twist on an old format is its use of coumarin. Whereas in traditional fougeres, the coumarin adds a dry hay-like grassiness, here the coumarin is taken in a sultrier, more oriental direction, emphasizing the musky sweetness of the tonka bean from whence the coumarin was extracted. Fans of aromatic lavender-tonka fragrances ranging from Gris Clair to Tom Ford’s own Fucking Fabulous will likely love Fougère d’Argent for its bold updating of the fougere structure, but others appreciate it even more for its total lack of gourmandise. Dry, masculine, and admirably unsweet, Fougère d’Argent is for the man who effortlessly exudes confidence, no matter what he’s wearing or doing.

I love all of the Tom Ford fragrance's I've tried. However, Fougere d'Argent is my absolute favorite. I love the fact that many TF fragrances are unisex, because I am a woman who doesn't like all of the flowery & girly smells that the HIGH majority of women's perfume has. Fuogere d'Argent is so sexy & smooth. When I wear it I gets SO many compliments from men & women. Everyone always asks me what I'm wearing that smells so good. I wish I could afford to buy a full bottle but the 9ml glass travel spray lasts a long time. It's not overpowering, but the scent stays on my skin until the following morning. There are several layers to this fragrance that are very appealing & satisfying to the nose. There a notes of lavender & citrus mandarin which gives this scent a lighter freshness, but the ginger, & oil from the Tonca bean bring's in the smooth warm tones. When marinated together it provides an utterly sexy & provocative scent which makes a statement that's memorable & will leave you smelling fantastic. It tends to boost my confidence as well. I don't think anyone could go wrong by wearing Fougere d'Argent. And, mind you, it's very hard to find in travel sizes. So I definitely thank Scent Split for that!
Glad I bought this. I already own Beau De Jour which is good but a little intense(2 sprays max for me) FDA is definitely more mellow and very pleasant. My favorite part is the dry down which reminds me of incense. More of a cool weather scent for me.
I know I gave 4 stars only because I do love what your company is doing very authentic an wonderful company but shipping was extremely slow could be cause of COVID an Holidays so I cannot blame the company in other words I appreciate everyone working hard thank you so much! Fragrance Wise I know it will be good cause it’s Tom Ford!
A heavy fougere. Very green. If you want a lighter version try Fougere Platine.
Great barber shop scent
