In what is turning out to be a very good year for reissues (are you listening, Dior? get with the program!), Robert Piguet is planning to reintroduce two fragrances from their back catalog this fall, Visa for women and Cravache for men.
Visa was originally developed by perfumer Germaine Cellier, and launched in 1945 (after Bandit but before Fracas). The new version of the "classic oriental" was created by perfumer Aurelien Guichard, who also developed last year's reissue of Baghari.
A blend of spices, flowers and fruits from different areas of the globe, Visa de Robert Piguet is its wearer's passport to an exotic encounter. Visa opens with lush notes of white vineyard peach, pear, violet leaves and Italian bergamot and yellow mandarin essences. Heart notes include rich ylang essence mingled with rose, immortelle and orange flower absolutes. Essence of Indonesian Patchouli and sandalwood, vetiver, moss, vanilla beans, benzoin and a gourmand leathery accord compose the drydown.
Robert Piguet Visa will be available in 30 ml Parfum; 50 or 100 ml Eau de Parfum.
Cravache was originally introduced in 1963:
Now, the formula has been rebalanced to blend tradition and modernity. New, exciting and distinct, this warm elixir combines mandarin, lemon and petit grain mingled with clary sage, lavender, nutmeg, patchouli and vetiver.
Robert Piguet Cravache will be available in 50 and 100 ml Eau de Toilette and in matching grooming products. (via Fashion Fragrances and Cosmetics)
