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.
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.
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.
