    Default RIP Béatrice Piquet, creator of L'Instant PH

    From Perfumeshrine comes the sad news that Béatrice Piquet, the nose behind Guerlain's L'Instant PH, Burberry's The Beat, and Trussardi Uomo (among many other fragrances) has passed away following a long illness.

    I am saddened to hear this. Thank you, Phinclio, for sharing.

    I adore Rose Essentielle.

    What sad news-- she looked like such a lively, fun lady. Tomorrow I'm going to wear my L'Instant PH EDT.

    Does anyone know if she also did the EDP version?

    I will wear L Instant today, RIP :-(

    Sadness; there's one less great nose in the fragrance community now. Thanks for sharing this important news PhinClio.

    Time for me to dig around for my bottle of Trussardi Uomo.

    Sadly I didn't know Beatrice Piquet's name until now. She sure made some hits and had a part in how the world smells in her era.
    That girl, that bottle, that mattress and me.

    Thank you for sharing the news. She was far too young.
    I was a fan of L'Instant PH from my first sniff. I will always have it in my wardrobe.

    Oh wow, I just saw this while trying to find out what other scents Piquet made besides L'Instant. I've completely fallen in love with this fragrance and it's very crappy to hear that its composer has died. Man, that stinks. I've only smelled this one out of her works and I am extremely impressed. R.I.P.

    Sad news. Thanks for sharing this - I'll remember her whenever I wear LIPH (I have almost the entire range - it's a big favorite of mine).

    I have to put in a good word for her Burberry The Beat (women's) - a collaboration with Ropion and O. Polge. I think that one is really great, and quite wearable by guys. It's quiet but stands out, IMO.
