Created by Germaine Cellier and inspired by Rita Heyworth's iconic performance in Gilda, Fracas is the quintessential tuberose perfume of its day: a burst of peach and orange blossom leads into a glorious rain of gardenia, jasmine and great profusions of tuberose. A linear perfume which remains fairly constant throughout its duration, Fracas is the acme of glamorous, sensual femininity.
Piguet set up his own fashion house in 1933. But by 1938 his success and reputation were so great he moved his salon to the prestigious address at Rond Point de Champs Elysee.
Charming and aristocratic, a connoisseur of literature, painting and the decorative arts, Robert Piguet's fragrances are often described as having 'a particular feel, very characteristic of his trademarks; adherence to good taste, true luxury and an innate sense of seduction.'
