First wore this back in 1987. Thought I loved it until my friend politely informed me that I smelled like mildewed wet towels. OMFG! She was right! Never wore this again and from that day forward no matter who is wearing this regardless the event or their age all I discern is the smell of wet towels. Revisited this last year in the hope my nose had matured, it hadn't. I still loathe this as …Read more

Mais oui, mais oui! The first truly womanly fragrance I've ever owned that wears without being an unpleasant reminder of some ancient dowager draped in an expensive but musty Murano lace shroud.

Tuberose, yes. Gardenia, yes. But on my skin an underlying sense of something wise and intriguingly sinister. It makes me want to strut with an old-world feminine air... an air …

This is such a feminine, floral fragrance. None of the androgyny of the more modern stuff that crowds the counters. It lasts all day on me, and I love catching a whiff whenever I move.

I'm a lurker on the fragrance board, and Fracas is a fragrance that comes up repeatedly as a legendary perfume. I thought I wasn't a fan of white floral, but I'm starting to think differently after testing Fracas. I sent an email to the customer service at Robert Piguet asking if they sold samples,they asked me for my address, and sent me a free sample vial of Fracas and Bandit eau …Read more

Delicious! I love tuberose, and Fracas is the ne plus ultra of tuberose fragrances. I've read lots of reviews about how this is an ultrafeminine/diva fragrance for special nights out, but I wear it any time (in very tiny dabs: my tester vial has lasted almost a year). I feel like it warms up my somewhat androgynous wardrobe.

Oh, Fracas... Where have you been all my life??? This is a lovely tuberose/gardenia scent with just the smallest touch of cream for warmth. It reminds me of Le Meridien's lobby in Cancun where they keep fresh tropical flowers in vases... So fresh, so clean, so tropical, so me... :-)

Fracas has legendary status in the world of perfumes. And I so wanted to LOVE it because of that. I first found this in a corner drugstore back in the late 60's or early 70's (when there were still corner drugstores) that had a weirdly eclectic assortment of fragrances. I bought it with my babysitting money (that's how young I was). It was AWFUL on me. Years later, I found it …Read more

The EDP is a bit harsh to me. But the parfum . . . wow. It's a fragrance that, in parfum form, melds with the warmth of my skin and becomes part of my natural scent. I feel comfortable in this. This is a glorious tuberose, yet for me it's much more. My nose always picks up something different from it. There's something slightly edible about it---bread, a touch of salt, I'm …Read more

I know a lot of people say that Fracas is a outgoing, loud, sexy, in-your-face kind of perfume. Hell, even the name "Fracas" implies it. So maybe I'm completely off base but I find Fracas to be more warm, soft, gentle, and comforting than anything else. There is cleavage yes, but it's not sex symbol out in the club - it's curled up on the sofa nuzzling someone …Read more
