Two Important Milestones:
Advicesisters.com has reviewed Robert Piguet Parfums in the past, but this year the fragrance house is reaching two important milestones. The first is the 75th Anniversary of V fragrance (formerly Visa). It is also the 10th Anniversary of the Modern Collection. The brand has expanded over the decades since the 1940s when fragrances Fracas and Bandit (named in homage to the designer’s favorite dogs) were introduced.

Fracas, the Belle of the Fragrance Ball:
The legendary perfumer, Germaine Cellier, sought to create a scent that would make its wearer feel like a bombshell. Fracas definitely can have that effect. So many people love the feminine Fracas floral fragrance. Brigitte Bardot, Madonna and Courtney Love chose Fracas for their signature scent along with many more. But while it is iconic, it’s not for everyone. That’s the thing about Robert Piguet fragrances. They are all different to suit different moods, personalities, and tastes.
How it Smells:
If you want to try Fracas, or gift a little hostess gift try the Fracas Little Pink Box ($99). Presented in a pink gift box with black satin ribbon, the Little Pink Box includes Fracas Eau de Parfum spray in a 30ml/1oz flacon as well as a 7.5ml/.25 oz Rollerball.
