Fracas Eau de Parfum, Robert Piguet
Fracas Eau de Parfum, launched in 1948 by couturier Robert Piguet and arguably his masterpiece, Fracas is a consummate tuberose fragrance (with hints of orange blossom and pink geranium) that has retained and even expanded upon its appeal through the years---quite the feat for a 60-year-old. It's a highly evocative scent of unparalleled sensuality and provocative sweetness - and quite often mistakenly referred to as "the best gardenia around" (though whether or not that flower is to be found in the formulation is open to debate).
Presented here in the ridiculously sumptuous Eau de Parfum, in 2 sizes (simply select from the drop-down box).

Cherished in the 40's by Marlene Dietrich; cherished today by Madonna and Kim Basinger (and the entire LUSCIOUS CARGO staff). This one is glorious, stunning, stellar - arguably one of the most memorable fragrances ever created---an attention-grabber, a heart-stopper, a traffic-stopper.
