Fracas Parfum Purser Set, Robert Piguet
Introduced in 1948 by Robert Piguet and long known as the perfume that is "the fragrance of commotion, an elegant chaos of the heart", this classic tuberose fragrance (with hints of orange blossom and pink geranium) has retained and even expanded upon its appeal - quite the feat for a 60-year-old. It's a highly evocative scent of unparalleled sensuality - and quite often mistakenly referred to as "the best gardenia around" (though that flower is not to be found in the formulation).
Presented here in just about the most fabulous gift set we have EVER encountered, the highly coveted and quite sensible purser set that we've agreed must make the short list for the luxe thing of the century. And if you can fathom it, this is a luxe thing that's also quite a bargain, when you get right down to it.
You'll receive the lovely and iconic black enameled flacon with heavy crystal stopper. This Flacon contains **2 ounces/60 ml**of PARFUM and is accompanied by TWO parfum refill sprays (.25 oz/7.5ml) - so you can see that, ounce for ounce, this is quite the deal. The Parfum rests in a bed of Piguet's beautiful pink satin, while the 2 purse sprays appear in a clever little pull-out drawer underneath. This is a gift that is the quintessence of elegance and luxury and pampered indulgence. (And you are most decidedly worth it.)
Top notes: bergamot, orange blossom, leafy green essence, peach blossom, pink geranium

Cherished back in the day by Marlene Dietrich and Marilyn Monroe; cherished today by Madonna and Kim Basinger (and the entire LUSCIOUS CARGO staff). This one is glorious, stunning, stellar! It's also inarguably one of the most memorable fragrances ever created---an attention-grabber, a heart-stopper, a traffic-stopper.
2 oz/60ml **PARFUM** and two refills of .25 oz/7.5ml
