Robert Piguet is one of the finest perfumery companies in the world. The iconic French brand has been and they are known for luxury perfumes of excellent quality.
I was lucky enough to be sent some of their perfumes for review and I will split them up into to posts.
Today I am showing you the Pacific Collection. These perfumes are brand new and lovely for spring. All Robert Piguet’s perfumes are designed to be unisex, but as always I do think some lean more towards the feminine or masculine side than others.
A bit about the brand….Robert’s family wanted him to become a banker and work in commerce however at 17 he went against their wishes and turned to a career in fashion. After two successful years working with one of the most well-known and respected designers, he set up his own fashion house. In the years that followed he was admired and help to train world famous designers such as Pierre Balmain, Marc Bohan and also Christian Dior. A few years after launching the fashion line he began creating perfumes. He passed away in 1953.
The three perfumes in the this collection are Blossom, Chai and Jeunesse – these were designed for the Asian market and that they are based on fragrances which symbolise Chinese plants.
This is a lovely scent, its delicate and naturally scented. The notes are green mandarin, white musk with top notes of orange and neroli. There are undertones of champagne. I think this is one scent that leans towards the feminine side and its certainly one for the spring and summer months and I would say its a daytime scent. Its delightful.
Another scent which is perfect for spring, this is less feminine than Blossom but equally as lovely. This is the most unisex of the three perfumes in this collection. The notes are Bergamot leaves, orange blossom and white tea leaves. There is also a hint of honey too. I find this combination is very light, refreshing and sophisticated meaning that’s why its perfect for spring. This is more of a daytime scent if you ask me.
Last but not least we have this is a feminine scent due to the fruitiness of the black currants, raspberry, pomegranate and musk. This scent is a little woody and a tiny bit spicy too, I think its the most intense of the three perfumes in this collection. Its probably my favourite of the three and I think its perfect for either day time or night.
I love the packaging of each of the perfumes, the bottles are understated and classic whilst appealing to both men and women. They are made from black sand!
The quality of all three perfumes is unquestionable. First thing to note is that they are all PARFUMs and secondly none of the notes are artificial. In some parfums and perfumes the notes are created using artificial chemicals, but this never happens with Robert Piguet products. Due to the high quality the wear of these is fantastic, they are extremely long wearing and so in the long run work out to be quite good value for money. Would I buy one of these myself? Yes, I would rather buy one of these than spend half of that money on a perfume of lower quality from a somewhere like Chloe or Dior.
Each of the perfumes retails for £130 for 100ml and they are available in Harrods, Selfridges and Harvey Nichols. You can check out their website here.
I think any one of these would be fantastic gifts for Valentines day – maybe drop your other half some *massive* hints (cough cough!) or they would also make wonderful Mothers Day gifts that your mum would just adore!?
What do you think? Would you be tempted to buy one of these? Have you ever tried Robert Piguet’s perfumes before?
Thanks for reading!
P.S – this post contains PR samples, however my reviews are always honest and my thoughts are my own You can trust me on that, but you cant trust me not to steal your blusher if I like it!
