Robert Piguet is reissuing Baghari, a soft floral melody originally created in 1950, just a year before the renowned fashion designer had to close the house due to his failing health. The original perfumer behind Baghari was Francis Fabron, the perfumer who created Balenciaga Le Dix, Givenchy L’Interdit, and Nina Ricci L’Air du Temps.
The new version is going to be reorchestrated by Aurélien Guichard, the creator of Bond No. 9 Chinatown and Nina Ricci Love in Paris. The composition will include notes of bergamot, aldehydes, violet, neroli, jasmine, Bulgarian rose, rose centifolia, iris, vetiver, amber, vanilla, musk. Baghari will be available in the fall of 2006. I have the original version, and I am looking forward to comparing it to the reochestrated one. Via Robert Piguet.
