Noggs, I remember having a sample of Fracas parfum and it was the most gorgeous thing ever: full, creamy and somehow fresh at the same time. The EDP has a powdery quality in my opinion and it smells more dated. It is not a bad fragrance, but the parfum is out of this world.
Bandit smells completely different in parfum (much less harsh) than the EDP. I recall the newer reissues (Visa, etc.) smelling similar in both concentrations. As mentioned, Fracas is stunning in parfum...hard to explain how...rich I guess? Emphasis on different notes?
I only have EDP and pure perfume versions of Bandit. Both modern releases. To my nose scent-wise they are almost identical, perfume being only slightly deeper and softer. Also longevity is about the same, but speaking of projection there's a big difference. EDP stays quite close to the skin, while perfume projects much better and its heart and base notes are more noticeable right from the start.
