My first perfume purchase ever, many years ago. I bought it for the name (which means something like wild but shy; I was neither, but that didn't stop me), but loved the fragrance, too. It started me down the road of chypre madness that I still follow today. Here's the description from Jan Moran:
Farouche by Nina Ricci for Women
Year Introduced: 1974

Top Notes: Bergamot, mandarin, galbanum, aldehydes, peach

"Farouche is an aldehydic floral bouquet from Nina Ricci. Citrus fruit top notes combine with the greenness of galbanum for a crisp opening sequence of aromas, dissolving into an ethereal floral heart. Soft sandalwood and soothing oakmoss lend a woody backdrop, like an autumn walk through the Black Forest.
Softly tenacious, Farouche is a feminine fragrance that is easy to wear from day to evening for a variety of occasions."
