About this deal

It is a scent that some say should never be worn out to dinner because your neighbors at the table may be too overwhelmed to be able to taste their food.

If those citrus dominated top notes could cut through the oily, teak wood note that floats over Fracas for Men's very cheap smelling base of musk and vanilla, it may have had some balance. You could also try possibly a sample set of Ormonde Jayne perfumes that they have on Surrender to Chance. Truth or Date is a greener, more modern take on Fracas and the wood notes in that are more detectable.

Writing in the first part of the 21st century, he noted that recent reformulations had brought the scent closer to Cellier's original, as compared with "threadbare" versions sold in the 1980s.

Clarification: this post and piece is about vintage Fracas, both the very original versions and late 1990s Fracas, not the horribly mangled, modern reformulations. The aromatic greenery is subdued leaving behind a fresher floral scent with oranges and apples, and a dry down of clean musk. I’m REALLY trying hard to get out of the masculine/feminine mindset, because I think it’s sort of garbage anyway, since it’s all arbitrary and completely socially constructed.

The side which sends people reeling with horror, the side which has been described as pure poison, redolent of “rotting fruit,” litter boxes, cat urine, and more. Cellier infamously dedicated Fracas ~a voluptuous tuberose scent conceived for ‘femmes’~ to the beautiful Edwige Feuillère, while she promised the butcher Bandit to the ‘dykes’. A big bouquet of flowers--I really get the peach and orange blossom at the opening before the tuberose comes in, balanced by lily of the valley to keep things fresh. Some will recommend Carnal Flower instead, however I found it leaned more into the green, aquatic qualities of the flower, making it a true unisex scent in my opinion.

The old bottle has softer notes -tuberose apart- and Violet, Bergamot and Jasmin appear almost smudged, "blurred", "overlapped", almost non recognizable each other. It smells so bad on me that I not only don't want to smell like this, I can't imagine anyone else wanting to smell like this. Note: The pros and cons listed on this page have been generated using the artificial intelligence system, which analyzes product reviews submitted by our members. It is so complex- it has light and green citrusy notes and at the same time it has heavy white creamy florals with animalic touch.My mother bought a bottle about 3 years ago which had very watery levels of florals but so much of the blasted clean, white musk (which I personally loathe as a perfume note) that I actually blinked.

French perfume house, Robert Piquet, wanted to create a fragrance that represented Paris’ freedom and femininity.

It is accompanied with matching body care product – Silkening Body Wash (250ml), Silkening Body Lotion (250ml) and Silkening Body Crème (200ml). I also had the same issue with Michael Kors signature fragrance, which is another big buttery floral I really wanted to love. Here, legendary perfumer, Germaine Cellier, sought to create a scent that would make its wearer feel like a bombshell; one that would leave an unsettling effect on everyone that encountered it. However , the yester years were all about heavy formulations , amber coloured , thick , syrupy white florals.
