 Petit Fracas

Play the game of love with Petit Fracas by Robert Piguet. The scent has an audacious air, inspired by the iconic fragrance Fracas. Petit is fresh, youthful and feminine, with a playful innocence. Flirtatious and charming, Petit Fracas opens with notes of fresh citrus and pear. At the heart of the scent is a floral with a vintage edge: tuberose and white flowers. Sophisticated, with a touch of whimsy, the base is underscored by the elegance of musk and sandalwood sprinkled with a touch of chocolate.

Elegant and enchanting, but not too serious, Petit Fracas is a chic floral bouquet, perfect for flirty fashionistas or fashionistas at heart.

Robert Piguet
"The Prince of Fashion"

Born in 1898 to a prominent banking family in Yverdon, Switzerland, Robert Piguet’s passion for fashion design demonstrated itself early on. At 17, in the face of heavy opposition from family, he left Yverdon for Paris where he studied under the legendary houses of Redfern and Poiret.

In 1933, after completing his training, Piguet opened his own atelier on Paris’ Rue du Cirque. There he became known for the delicacy and reserve of his morning and afternoon dresses, a certain flamboyance of color in clothes for evening, and for the perfect cut of his thin grey flannel suit. Every collection was a reflection of his infallible eye, refined simplicity, and the quality that most defined Piguet—elegance—in style, character, and inspiration.

Charming and aristocratic, a connoisseur of literature, painting, and the decorative arts, Piguet’s success and reputation in Paris continued to flourish. He surrounded himself with Paris’ fashion elite as well as a host of the most notable artists of the time including Jean Cocteau, Colette, and Jean Marais. In 1938, to the delight of all of Paris, Piguet unveiled his crowning glory—The House of Robert Piguet—at the Rond-Point des Champs-Elysee, one of the city’s most prestigious addresses.

It was during the years at Rond-Point that the most enduring aspects of Piguet’s legacy took shape; first, as the master who trained the eyes of couture’s most recognized names, and second, as the man that forever changed the world of fragrance.

“Robert Piguet taught me the virtues of simplicity through which true elegance must come,” wrote Christian Dior who years earlier, was a penniless artist who would eventually become one of Piguet’s most celebrated “stagiares”. Other names that trained at The House of Piguet read like a who’s who of haute couture including Hubert de Givenchy, Marc Bohan, Pierre Balmain, and James Galanos.

But while Piguet’s impact on fashion is indisputable, it is his fragrance legacy that has made him legendary. Working with perfumer Germaine Cellier in the late ‘40s, it was Piguet’s Bandit and Fracas that acted as the watershed to a new era in perfumery. These were said to “have a particular feel very characteristic of his trademarks: strict adherence to good taste, true luxury, a horror of the commonplace and an innate sense of seduction.”
