Quote from review on 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. The composition is ornamented by woods and oakmoss, which provide a dark counterpoint to the lush floral orchestration."
French couturier Robert Piquet wanted to create a fragrance that represented Paris' freedom and femininity. He commissioned perfumer Germaine Cellier to create this intoxicating scent. "When a woman wears it, the tuberose mingles with the skin, so it's impossible to tell where her natural scent ends and the perfume begins - that is the definition of a sexy fragrance" aldus Frédéric Malle.
Robert Piguet was a talented fashion designer, who at the top of Parisian fashion in the 30s and 40s, captured the imagination of many, with his elegant and alluring designs. His haute couture collection was very popular in French aristocratic circles. Robert Piguet was the confidant and mentor of Christian Dior. In 1944, the couturier launched his first perfume. In 1948, Bandit and Fracas followed. Both fragrances are still, until this very day iconic, cult fragrances and the favorite fragrances of many memorable woman.
