In 1944, Robert Piguet created a daring couture collection, which was based on a “Bad Boy” concept. Just at the end of the second World War, Piguet’s shows featured models sporting villain masks and brandishing toy revolvers and swords. The scent accompanying this air of avant-garde mischief was Bandit, a composition created by perfume icon, Germaine Cellier, renowned for her bold and distinctive creations.
Bandit is a renowned classic. Cellier used dark notes of leather, the greenness of moss and smoky woods, to give the scent its rich and unforgettable character. Accented with verdant galbanum and hints of orange-blossom, Bandit is certainly the “enfant terrible” of the Piguet fragrance collection. Jasmine and patchouli lend an exotic twist while leather and oak moss provide a thorny crown.
Bandit is a fragrance composition light years ahead of its time — a perfumer’s perfume.
