At the height of the Paris fashion movement of the 1930s and 1940s, Robert Piguet's eloquent designs personified sophistication and seduction. A darling of France's demimonde, he is revered for his haute couture fashions. Deemed a visionary by his peers, Piguet became confidant and mentor to Christian Dior. In 1944, the couturier debuted his first fragrance, Bandit. Fracas, a successful follow-up, remains a classic and is the preferred scent of many of the world's most memorable women.
