Horror that turned later into love
With my chemistry this is horror, it doesn't work with me at all, I have asked the opinion of two males and they didn't like it at all on my skin....pfft i can't stand the smell on me, maybe it is just "my chemistry" and it is good for others, lucky I only could find a decant of 5 A... Read more

Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't
The first year I planted tuberose it flowered albeit very late in the year however in subsequent years the conditions have been too cool to bring the plants out of dormancy at the right time. I had only a few flower heads per plant but they were enough to fill the leanto with a heavey sweet... Read more

Tuberose Stink Bomb
If you adore tuberose, you'll go bananas for FRACAS. But if, like me, you find it vulgar and repellent, run the other way!

Behold: The Blonde Diva
Fracas was created in 1948 by Germaine Cellier, one of the few female noses working in the male-dominated field of post WWII perfumery. To my mind, Cellier was a legitimate niche perfumer long before the term was even coined, in the sense that her best work (Bandit, Fracas, Vent Vert) appeals to a... Read more

despite appearances, it's often the femme who calls the shots
I don’t believe in soliflors. Of all the floral notes in perfumery, tuberose is the one that to my nose smells the least like its eponym. Soliflor perfumes don’t convincingly imitate flowers. The art of perfumery relies on chemistry to deliver an olfactory product. Plants, through... Read more

Creamy tuberose
When I first encountered Fracas, I was surprised, becaused I excepted I won't like it at all because of the tuberose (when it happened, I didn't like tuberose, because of Do Son, I thought every tuberose smell like that :)). Much to my astonishment - I liked it. It was so amazing, creamy and... Read more

An Angel with an Icepick;
Fracas is an Angel with a Icepick, never read a Book by it's cover no matter what note nor how Angelic A face might be, Everything has an Dual side to them. Fracas opens with Pure White Tuberose gives an Air of Insular Ambiguity and Clinical Elegance like a Cool Hitchcockian Blonde Innocent... Read more

Classic, buttery tuberose
This is most likely the most popular niche fragrance in the world. Prior to testing Fracas, I had read so many rave reviews so my expectations were high, very high. I'm certainly not disappointed. Fracas is every floral lover's dream. Rich, heady white florals on a creamy and woodsy base.... Read more

soapy sophistication
Fracas is a very well-made white floral, in which tuberose, carnation, and orange blossom dominate. I get a hint of spearmint and sweet bubblegum too, interestingly. Although it has the reputation of being a classic femme fatale scent, I get a totally different vibe from it. To me, it is a... Read more

Mother loves!
Too much Tuberose! I also get a lot of peach with a heavy Musk base! It is a skin scent on me, but does not last long enough!

Interesting winter floral.. hmm

Nice, but not for me!

Tap into your Inner Diva!
FRACAS is, to me, the queen of the diva-worthy perfumes. Unapologetic and insistent, even haughty, but with every right in the world, for she is a beauty indeed. This lush, seductive tuberose composition has extraordinary longevity and diva-worthy sillage. Nothing really compares to FRACAS. Well,... Read more
