Fougère Classique Shaving Soap
Based on the original formula for the legendary Fougère Royale, Fougère Classique began life as one of our very first aftershave splashes, but, despite repeated requests from its fans, it never received the full shaving soap treatment that many felt was its due. That is, until now.
Fougère Classique is a richly floral, stunningly opulent assemblage of lavender, oakmoss, coumarin, bergamot, geranium, jasmine, ylang ylang, benzoin, labdanum, patchouli, heliotrope, musk, and vanilla. Radiantly retro and timelessly sophisticated, this is a fragrance crafted for royals and nobles, a design that can be best characterized by its original creator, perfumer Paul Parquet:
If God had given ferns a scent, they would smell like Fougère Royale.
Net wt. 4 oz, Made in the USA
Directions for UseWet your shaving brush well, then swirl it around the jar for roughly thirty seconds or until a rich, creamy lather is formed. Continue building the lather by adding water (lots and lots of it) and swirling your brush either on your face or in a lathering bowl. Shave, rinse, and spend your day feeling great.

I really enjoyed this scent and I can only describe as floral heaven. I purchased the whole set and I like how the aftershave balm pairs well with the aftershave splash to sooth my dry skin.
Excellent scent and performance
I really like Fougere Classique. The scent notes I smell the most are lavender and patchouli, but your nose may be different. The lather is typical B-M goodness as well.
Inspired by Houbigant "Fougere Royale", B&M's "Fougere Classique" is a beautiful aromatic fougere with a lovely rich, green scent and a touch of talc (to my nose anyway) which pushes it ever so slightly into barbershop territory. Wonderful! I've never tried the frag so I can't speak to its accuracy, but, I foresee a bottle of this in my future. A decadently thick, slick lather which provided a lot of cushion and the post-shave face feel was wonderful.
One of the best!
Starts out with lots of florals with lavender and something reminding me of hyacinth. Then dries down to the more classic fougere with lavender on a warm base of vanilla with nice powdery soap. To me this is one of the best in Will's great catalogue of outstanding scents. The soap is second to none with a creamy and velvety feel and excellent glide. I will get another soap and add the AS when available in Europe.
