    Foin Coupé is the scent of freshly mown hay. It is an incredibly diffusive sweet coumarinic base with orange blossom nuances loaded with natural oils, including pure and natural French hay absolute. Use it as a modifier for coumarin or herbal notes, or as a radiant and earthy nuancer for a gentlemen's fragrance.

    Featured in Patou Pour Homme Privé, one of the most highly regarded scents for men gaining a near-mythical status, this fresh cut hay base is sublime.

    We also offer the original crystalline Foin Rigaud — an intensely powerful and penetrating base note product.

    Appearance: Deep yellow to olive liquid
    Longevity: Lasts > 400 hours on a smelling strip

    General Information

    Like most suppliers and makers of quality raw materials for fragrances, we do not filter many of our products. This ensures that no odiferous matter is lost prior to use but can result in the appearance of small particles or slight clouding.

    All alcoholic fragrances should be macerated for up to a month and then chilled in a moderate freezer overnight before being filtered fine. This will remove all cloudiness or detritus and is the industry norm.

    Permitted amounts in finished product:

    IFRA 51: 7.9%
    IFRA 49: 7.9%

    These are derived from calculated concentrations which do not replace chromatographic quantification on individual lots. Disclaimer...

    Diffusive, lovely, coumarinic

    This is a beautifully diffusive hay base with both green/fresh elements as well as the sweetness of coumarin. Works beautifully in the PPH Prive sample formula provided.

    Foin Coupé

    English Fern

    This is indeed a highly diffusive and quite powerful base. I was a bit puzzled at first, because I expected something more in the direction of real hay or flouve absolute. Foin Coupé reminds me strongly of some traditional English fougère fragrances like Geo F. Trumper's "Wild Fern" or Penhaligon's "English Fern". - To my nose, this base also contains a judiciously amount of salicylates (amyl salicylate, cis-3-hexenyl salicylate or alike) supporting diffusiveness.


    This is actually in contrast to what I imagined, having only coming across the hay absolute from France, and other green ac, Foin Coupe is a combination of linalool and facets of lavender-like materials, along with the grassy nuance. It's unfortunate i've never smelt freshly mown hay, only rice fieldsXD, this is a base that's suitable for those who enjoy outdoorsy, and natural scent with touches of manliness.
