Description

Robert Piguet Fracas was created by Germain Cellier in 1948, then relaunched in 1996.  Fracas is the ultimate in big white florals, this is a tuberose bomb.  We mean that in a good way, of course!  It's not for everyone, but it is a classic referenced in almost all historical perfume books. It was inducted into the FiFi Hall of Fame.

As Frederic Malle said "Every single person making a tuberose fragrance is trying to knock off the classic, which is Fracas"

It is the ultimate in femininity and is a favorite of many celebrities - Madonna, Kim Basinger, and more.

Fracas has notes of bergamot, orange blossom, greens, peach, tuberose, jasmine, violet, iris, lily of the valley, carnation, sandalwood, musk, oakmoss, and cedar.  This is the eau de parfum, EDP, of Fracas from Robert Piguet.  

The Hundred Classics Pick (Luca Turin & Tania Sanchez)

Reviews of Robert Piguet Fracas

From Bois de Jasmin - "After the initial overture by citrus and orange blossom—an olfactory calm before the storm, the darkness begins to gather forces. Tuberose undulates slowly and sensually, emerging under the veil of sweet delicate notes. It overshadows the radiance of orange blossom, which nevertheless remains in the background, glowing like traveling lights in the marshes. The sweet creamy note of tuberose is ornamented beautifully by jasmine, violet and iris, which lend a somber introspective quality to the composition. Lily of the valley is a surprising touch of spring-like freshness, teasing and evanescent as if carried by the wind–one moment it is distinct, the next it has vanished."

From Kafkaesque - "For all its glory, I would be the very first to say that you should never buy Fracas blind unless you are sure from ahead of time that you love powerful, heady white floral or tuberose scents. Never. One reason is the powerful projection and longevity of Fracas, which really cannot be emphasized enough."

From Makeup Alley - "I have worn this for a decade, cannot replace it for the world. Very distinct, powerful, chic. People literally stop you on the street to ask about it. Nothing comes close. The queen of fragrances."

    Smell Like '90s Madonna

    Apparently Madonna wears this, which of course is a huge selling point for me. A spray is bubbly like champagne, though I have no idea what to attribute this to. It's an aura, not a traditional floral at all. The Turin Guide describes this as a loud fragrance, but I was actually afraid I was wasting too much because it seemed subtle. Not sure if this is a flaw in my nose, but there does seem to be a difference in resonance for some of the notes. I bought a bottle. Signing up to be a Fracas girl.

    Love this fragrance. Much like Jungle Gardenia by Tuvache

    Like to buy small amounts of fragrance before committing to a full bottle

    Love at first whiff!

    Very distinctive, and lighter than I expected but still long lasting. I fell in love with Bandit first, and now I love Fracas too!

    Must I really try all the classics....even the florals?

    I always feel somewhat duplicitous giving a review on a floral fragrance, especially an icon, since I now prefer fragrances that are not straight up florals. That said, I too, once came from the land of Babe and Giorgio many moons ago so I know a little something about florals or maybe that is why I got out of floral land, who knows. I digress, I am sure this is a stunning fragrance for tuberose lovers. And I too wanted to love it but just could not get past the migraine. But, definitely recommend as a must try for all who can wear tuberose and would stay away if you do not....try some other classics instead.

    My Passionate affair with Tuberose

    This fragrance feels like the ultimate physical encounter with consuming passion. It fills every crevice of my being and satisfies all my senses. I cannot get enough. Thank goodness it is not a man.

    What a load of fracas!

    I'd been wanting to try Fracas for the longest time as i had always read how sexy and alluring and decadent it was and as i tend to go for patchouli or ambery musky tuberosey scents i thought i'd adore it... However i was a little disappointed to learn i didn't. I felt like it was too old for me. It's a powerful scent which packs a real punch. I found it to be too cloying and heavy at first spray and after it settled down i found it disappeared and i couldn't smell it on me at all, as it's a heavy fragrance to begin with it's not the type to spray more of as i was wary i would reek of it before too long. It's a unique fragrance no doubt. It smells rich and heady and mysterious. I simply found it wasn't for me at this time of my life. I think i rather fell for the idea of Fracas the scent rather than the actual scent itself so A+ for whoever was behind the marketing!!

    Fracas forever

    I've been wearing Fracas for many, many years. I love it and nothing I've never found any other scent that I'll leave it for... until I found Bandit, another Piguet fragrance. Now I alternated Fracas and Bandit.
