Launched in 1948 by Robert Piguet, created by Germaine Cellier, Fracas is hailed as “… indisputably the queen of all tuberose fragrances,” and it is the reference carnal fragrance… according to those in the know.
I say, “those in the know,” because to me, it smells like pink candy in the mouth of an innocent. As far as I’m concerned, it is the least carnal, least sensual, childishly girlish perfume I’ve smelled since the original Love’s Baby Soft. It’s as if the troublesome elements of every feminine perfume I’ve ever met were dumped into a steaming vat with unicorns, kittens, pink, purple, and sparkles. Think Lisa Frank.
FYI, I love She-Ra.
