If you have ever bemoaned the fact that old-school barbershop fougeres have gone the way of dinosaurs, then, ahem, may we introduce you to Le Barbier de Tanger? Soap, pine, lavender, moss….one can almost feel the scrape of the barber’s blade against our cheek and hear the snap as he pulls his leather strap taut.
Close your eyes and slip into the comfort of a genteel, all-male environment, evoking memories of your father and his morning grooming rituals. Wearing Le Barbier de Tanger is like stepping into the bathroom after him, smelling gorgeously of hot soapy water, clean leather, and aromatics so sharp that they slap you awake. The bone structure of a proper fougere is all there – oakmoss, coumarin, and lavender. But the story doesn’t stop there. A surprisingly touch of apple and pineapple adds a clean, sporty freshness, and ambroxan adds a haunting ambergris note complete with its silvery driftwood feel. Clean, spicy, mossy, and charmingly direct, we would be surprised if this fragrance wasn’t an immediate hit with wet shavers and lovers of retro masculines.
