An aromatic note often likened to the oh-so-sweet scent of rose. However, distinct facets of bright lemon and undertones of sharp green give the geranium its distinctly unique profile. Geranium is popularly used in fougère and rose accords, adding a characteristically sharp, vibrant tang to a range of fragrances.
Paul Parquet first used coumarin in 1882 in his creation: Fougère Royale. The success was immense and he thus invented a new olfactory family: Fougère, by combining coumarin with lavender, geranium, oakmoss and bergamot.
