Piguet - Bandit Suprême
Bandit Suprême is the perfectly formed resurrection of Piguet's once scandalously staged perfume icon. At his unforgettable 1944 fashion show, Robert Piguet's masked models shattered perfume bottles - a chypre fragrance spread through the hall, and the unbridled explosive power of its presentation made it a success: Bandit! The formula of the original fragrance, created by perfume legend Germaine Cellier, underwent several, no longer comprehensible, transformations over the decades. Finally, Aurelien Guichard, in-house perfumer of Piguet Parfums dedicated himself to researching Cellier's original formula. Reviving Bandit became a long-term project, and finding a formula as close as possible to the original fragrance became a mission of the heart. As a stunning result of this devoted work, Piguet Parfums presents Bandit Suprême - the brilliant closest possible approximation and olfactory renaissance of the iconic Bandit perfume.
Original and intense, Bandit Suprême shines, infused with leathery green bitter notes of galbanum on which citric tones shine like dancing sunspots in a wild green leafy bouquet. Ambroxan and jasmine, seductively soft and of a dreamy sweetness, steer in, taming Bandit Suprême and giving way to a deep animalic base, marked by musk and patchouli, but finally captured and rounded by oakmoss. Bandit Suprême de Robert Piguet is a great fragrance experience, a cult perfume whose revolutionary chypre character shines unbroken today as it did then.
