Description

Robert Piguet Visa was originally created and released in 1945 - some people say it was Germain Cellier, others sources say it was not. This is a re-issue of the 1945 classic, Visa, launched in 2007, created by Aurelien Guichard.  It is an oriental that blends spices, fruits, and flowers from around the globe.  Fragrance notes include violet leaves, bergamot, mandarin, ylang-ylang, rose, immortelle, orange flower absolute, peach, pear, patchouli, sandalwood, vetiver, moss, vanilla beans, benzoin, and leather accord.

Reviews of Robert Piguet Visa

From Basenotes - "This is a beautiful floral oriental with an abundance of wonderful fruit notes. I love opulent perfumes that carry me back in memory to the pre-IFRA days, and Visa - while it has been reformulated, like every other fragrance - fills that bill. It's warm, gracious, enveloping and inviting, sweet but not smarmy. I think it's lovely."

From Basenotes - "Visa opens with a ripe peach and plum duo which I recall from many scents from the early 90's. They are couched comfortably in the lactonic folds of vanilla and sandalwood, laced with a dry, green moss. Once the moss has established itself I am reminded immediately of Mitsuoko EDP, only this is at once simpler and plusher. Hints of citrus and white florals insinuate themselves, as a quiet, leathery scent hides in the powder, keeping the composition from spilling into edible territory."

    It opens with sweet ripe peach and some other sweet fruits. It then becomes a sweet, vanillic powdery affair. It leans too sweet for my taste and feels like it's missing something to give it more dimension and to balance out the sweet notes. Like maybe something more tangy or even boozy. I don't get much woods or anything earthy really. It seems well made and well blended but is just too one dimensional for my taste. I would be curious to compare it to the vintage fomulation.

    This is a nice perfume. I guess I would describe it as a fruity oriental. The scent is sweet and very pleasant. I would describe it as stewed fruits with soft spices. Moderate silage and longevity. Appropriate for an office environment

    Vintage revived in Visa

    The category 'oriental woody' is quite right, but I must emphasise the role of fruit here.
    The peach has a leading presence; what is more, we have immortelle and a subtle leather to give this peach a solid darkening.
    The pear is not just a bit-player; luscious yet restrained, it upholds its modest position next to the glorious benzoin, which features as a second dignitary.

    As Visa was reformulated in 2007, I wonder what the original must have been like, as this really has a beautiful vintage character: smooth, complicated and extremely well mannered.

    Intoxicating.


    (For fans of the discontinued Asja, help yourself to a sample of Visa soon, I urge you!)
