Piguet – Baghari EdP
Robert Piguet chose Master Perfumer Francis Fabron to work on the creation of Baghari with him. Mr. Fabron was known for his aldehydics, like L’Interdit, which he created for Givenchy as Audrey Hepburn’s signature scent. His compositions are in the so-called French style, very polished and feminine, delicately powdered. He is best known for Nina Ricci’s L’Air du Temps and Balenciaga’s Le Dix. Robert Piguet with his unerring discernment, chose the perfect perfumer to work with him on Baghari, a quintessentially feminine and romantic soft floral fragrance, ideally suited to the woman who is young at heart.
We knew we needed just the right “nose” to rebalance this very special fragrance. We found him in Aurélien Guichard, a young master perfumer who is part of the Fine Fragrance Team of Givaudan in Paris. Aurélien was appropriately born in Grasse, the center of the great tradition of “Haute Parfumerie.” He discovered his passion for composing fragrances while working for Givaudan in New York City. He joined the Fragrance Team after three years’ study at the Givaudan Perfumery School. Since then he has created Love in Paris and Les Belles-Cherry Fantasy for Nina Ricci, as well as several other successful fragrances. Along with his obvious talent, we were drawn to Aurélian’s commitment to honoring Piguet’s original vision, his sensitivity to all the nuances and complexities of Baghari, and his familiarity with contemporary tastes.
Aurélian undertook the delicate process of adapting Baghari’s original formula to respond to today’s sensibilities. The result: a modern classic fragrance destined to last forever.
