Borsalino

This was released in 1984 and accurately categorized as a fresh fougere. It has some chypre attributes as well, but a good fougere is what it is.

Spicy citric opening with a hint of woody floral from petitgrain and mace as well. There's a green overshadowing this from the heart and adds a very nice slant and in keeping with the fougere theme. The heartnotes are a laid back conglomeration of florals (eg.,carnation, geranium and jasmin) with fern in the dominant role.

The drydown is a subtle cedary-amber with a hint of anamilics and earthiness, but just a hint. This fragrance is at the correct volume and a gentleman. "Green" fans should like this very much. I like it alot and I am more inclined to orientals as a personal preference. Good to go Fougere from Borsalino !
