Fragrance description Robert Piguet FracasIngredients
The classic aroma of Robert Piguet Fracas Eau de Parfum reveals an opulent bouquet of white flowers.
- elegant and uncompromising fragrance
- a true classic from 1948
- full aroma of tuberose and jasmine
Composition of the fragrance
Fracas masterfully underscores the complex character of tuberose with the purity of jasmine and violet and the intoxicating fullness of gardenia and hyacinth. The delicate orange blossom and lily of the valley symbolise the fragility of their petals, and the drydown of musk, vetiver, and sandalwood introduces an animalistic aroma which perfectly blends in with the natural scent of its wearer.
Story of the fragrance
Fracas is a famous creation of Germaine Cellier, a talented perfumer and one of the first women employed as the “nose” of a perfume house. Since 1948 when it was first introduced, the perfume has become popular with many famous women who identified with its intense character. Some of its most prominent admirers are Madonna, Martha Stewart, Courtney Love, or Kim Basinger.
