Robert Piguet Parfums

Bandit

$5.00

Described as a “beautiful but brutal” by perfumer Guy Robert. Bandit sits in the galaxy of great leather chypre fragrances such as Chanel Cuir de Russie, Knize Ten, Caron Tabac Blond, and according to Luca Turin even the new version is still the brightest star of them all: “The magic is all there: bitter, dark yet fresh, beguiling without any softness, and still several unlit streets ahead of every other chypre around”.  Perfume the A-Z Guide, p 124

Visa

$5.00

The original 1947 version of Robert Piguet Visa was created by Jean Carles of Tabu fame, and was an extremely seductive animalic chypre, meant for mavens, not maidens.  The advertising copy described Visa as a scent for  “a sophisticated woman [who] travels the world but never gets lost in the crowd”. The re-issue in 2007 was formulated by Aurelian Guichard, creator of Bond No.

Fracas

$4.00

Fracas, the iconic white floral frag from Robert Piguet, is the diva of the tuberose frags

Tuberose isn’t a rose at all, but a night blooming plant with clusters of fragrant white waxy flowers that belongs to the lily family. Its odour profile is floral and creamy with mentholated and rotten-meat facets. It smells opulent, rich, deep, fleshy and wanton. It’s a pass/fail scent and I think those who pass on it, fail to develop an appreciation for it.
