    Default New: Baghari by Robert Piguet.

    I just receved a sample of this upcoming Robert Piguet fragrance.

    Name: Baghari
    Brand: Robert Piguet (Fashion Fragrances &Cosmetics LTD)
    Nose: Francis Fabron, reformulated by Aurélien Guichard.

    Notes as described on the sample card.
    top: citrus
    heart: rose, jasmine and orange blossom
    base: iris, amber and vanilla

    Like Fracas and Bandit, Baghari is a reintroduction of a vintage fragrance. Very elegant, this aldehydic is in style of Chanel N°5, but because of the warm amber and creamy vanilla it reminds me even more of Guerlain's Liu.

    But why reformulate? Always with the reformulations...

    ETA: Reading the website, I think I can already tell what's been done. Original Baghari = powdery. "Rebalance[d]" Baghari made "to respond to today's sensibilities" = not powdery, or at least less powdery. Am I right? Remember, for many modern women, powder = old lady, and that's a contemporary perfume's deathknell.

    Thanks for posting that Cedric. I just wish that Piguet would re-release Futur.

    I recall dear Mark from Cincinnati having a men's version of this: "Baghari Homme" I believe, although I have never heard of it since. I also have a bottle of the odd "Fracas for Men" and wonder what is the status of these odd variations. This new/old one will certainly garner some attention, but it sounds scarcely earth-shaking.

    I love Piguet! But sometimes I think I'm the only one who wears their Musc Blanc...looking forward to Baghari

    Whoa! Back it up! Tell us about this Musc Blanc! What's it like? When did it come out? Where did you find it?

    They had Baghari in stock at Harvey Nicks in Leeds today, so I couldn't resist having a sniff.

    To my nose, it doesn't smell modern, it has a very 40s feel to it. It started off quite powdery with flowers lurking in the background. As it warmed to my skin, the deeper notes mingled with the aldehydes but not with poweful effect of Chanel No5. Now that it's been on for 2 hours, it smells almost incensy on my skin. I like it!
