    Default New Fragrances: Robert Piguet The Nouvelle Collection

    From cafleurebon.com:

    Robert Piguet is introducing five new perfumes, all have no previous history and will debut in June 2012. Douglas Hannant de Piguet was a harbinger of a new direction for the renowned House that has spent the past several years reformulating its classic fragrances with a great degree of success. Douglas Hannant is a blend of the classic with the contemporary and was the last fragrance in what is now known as the Classic Collection.

    The Nouvelle Collection's five new scents were created by Master Perfumer Aurelien Guichard of Givaudaun (who is also responsible for Douglas Hannant, Visa, Calypso, Futur and Baghari).

    Bois Noir: The blend opens with facets of gaiac and cedar wood. Heart notes include warm sandalwood and patchouli. The drydown features the richness of balsam.

    Casbah: Top notes include the warmth of angelica root, black pepper and nutmeg. Mid notes feature smokey incense, orris and tobacco facets. Base notes include rich cedar wood and vetiver.

    Mademoiselle de Piguet: Composed of orange flower complimented by almond and apricot, Mademoiselle de Piguet also features notes of bergamot and tonka bean.

    Notes de Piguet: Notes opens with bergamot and clary sage. Mid notes include geranium and orange flower. The drydown is warmed by oakmoss, vetiver and tonka bean.

    Oud de Piguet:Saffron is the opening of Robert Piguet’s take on the very contemporary trend on one of the oldest notes in perfumery- oud. Fir balsam, styrax and myrrh are at the heart with gaiac wood, patchouli and oud at the base.

    At press time, there is no pricing or store information; however through a chance encounter with Robert Piguet's CEO Joe Garces of Fashion Fragrances & Cosmetics Ltd at the Elements Showcase I learned that each fragrance will have one retail partner.

    Mmmmm very nice.

    I see Piguet has gone the ultra royal route by blending oud with saffron.

    I think I will be fond of Notes de Piguet.

    Each scent will have one retail partner???? That's inconvenient and an interesting sales strategy...but they all sound great! Guichard is a great nose IMO

    Thanks JC! These sound quite good. Though I wonder how I will try them if they're scattered all about.

    And no new fragrance collection would be complete without an oud creation....

    My thoughts exactly...such a cliche at this point.
    "The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the "thinker." The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind.

    You begin to awaken"

    i declare a moratorium on oud as a fragrance theme until 2022.

    however oud can still be used as an ingredient in whatever concentration the perfumer deems appropriate as long as it does not appear in the name

    I'm ansious to try them, hope that the brand sell them all at least on their website. I'm curious even for their oud fragrance, which seems to be not the usual oud-rose-saffron combination.

    Any idea of how Piguet intends to market these? Obviously something called "Mademoiselle" is targeted to women, but the others aren't clearly masculine or feminine. I wear whatever I want, so I'm not asking for that reason. But I often find that fragrances marketed to women are generally better in quality than those marketed to men.

    ...tension sizzles...!
    Hopefully 2012 will bring us some more potential masterpieces than 2011!
