Reviews of Fougère Nobile by Nobile 1942

In my ongoing quest for a Rive Gauche replacement, another contender.

Very nice fougere, but wears a bit close for me.

Adds a tobacco note, but really sniffing hard to find it. The tonka is quite nice and sort takes over for the lavender.

It's a decent respectable barbershop scent and nice wear though light.

Falls into my "ok to wear to the dentist" category. Wish it was a bit bolder and the tobacco or the musk more prominent. The basics are all there.

Funwithfrags sums it up nicely: sort of like RIVE GAUCHE meets 1725.

Lockdown is bringing a hot streak. A few days after testing Fougere l'Aube, this is another great example of the genre. Sweeter, creamier than Rive Gauche, but still retaining that barbershop DNA. And, strangely, excellent value compared to its recently-reviewed-by-me stablemate, 1001.

In a sentence: taut Rive Gauche masculine assertiveness with a dash of Histoires-style dandyish decadence.

Another excellent offering from Nobile 1942.

An absolute gem. Quite stunning. Think Rive Gauche with a touch of leather, tobacco and tonka. That's Fougere Nobile. Which one is better is surely in the eye of the beholder/wearer. Rive Gauche is more classic while Fougere Nobile is slightly more modern and wears a tad lighter.

Quality ingredients and a totally sophisticated fragrance that sparkles on the skin.

Since I discovered Nobile 1942 I have been very satisfied with their fragrances. Fougere Nobile is no exeption, it smells delightful. The relaxing lavender with the tobacco and tonka bean. I can also smell the geranium. It is a quality fragrance, elegant and sophisticated.

As Marais has pointed out, this definitely falls in the Rive Gauche camp of fougeres, rather than the Sartorial camp.

But, I do like it's subtlety compared to RG -- it's a trumpet rather than a trombone and the drydown is long and satisfying.

A decent scent. Would get a thumbs up, were it not for the fact that Rive Gauche pour Homme already exists (and at a lower price). Hoping for something new to intrigue my inquisitive snozzle, I found a near-simulacrum and interest rapidly waned.
