    "What would the Devil smell like if he walked among us?”

    Obviously he would smell not only of smoke and flame, but also of wealth and classic taste. A smoky fougère, then, one that would reflect the stain of Hell and the forbidden temptations that surround the Prince of Lies.

    I began with the core skeleton of all fougères, the classic combination of lavender, oakmoss, bergamot, geranium, and tonka bean. To this were added the ancient, primordial influences of balsam fir, vetiver, cedar, and mushroom, topped off with the richness of smooth musks, sandalwood, leather, and tuberose. Finally, and most distinctly, I blended in the essences of black ashes and smoldering flame to echo the fires of Hell, burning for all time.

    The result was an eerily smooth, smoky fougère with a distinctly “ashy” character and the dark cast of some ancient atrocity. Fougère Gothique is my magnum opus, and I’m very proud to bring it to you this Halloween.

    Hell is empty. And all the devils are here.
