Fracas Perfume by Robert Piguet, Fracas for Women was originally introduced to the public in 1948 under the Robert Piguet label. Today it remains one of the most notable tuberose-based fragrances on the market. Germaine Cellier developed this lush fragrance and it continues to be popular with women such as Kim Basinger and Madonna.
The opening notes include mandarin orange, peach, hyacinth and orange blossoms for a citrusy beginning touched with peach and white flowers. The main event is definitely the tuberose you’ll find in the heart of the fragrance. The tuberose is backed by a creamy bouquet of jasmine, lily of the valley and narcissus. Spice notes of coriander and the sharp scent of carnation add some zest to the scent, followed by a finish of oakmoss, amber, musk and cedar. There’s very little green in Fracas, but a wealth of florals that make this an intoxicating women’s fragrance to be worn year-round.
The Robert Piguet name has passed through several hands since the 1940’s and is owned today by Fashion Fragrances and Cosmetics. Many of the classic fragrances from an earlier era have been reformulated with modern ingredients that appeal to today’s consumer.
