In 1950, Robert Piguet asked master perfumer Francis Fabron to create a scent for an unforgettable woman; the woman Piguet called simply “a dreamer”.
For her, Fabron created Baghari, the last fragrance Piguet presented before closing his atelier and retiring from fashion altogether. Uncovered some 56 years later, Baghari’s formula was updated and refined by Aurelien Guichard giving the beguiling classic a modern sensibility while never departing from Piguet’s commitment to his beloved “dreamer”.
This soft, floral aldehyde fragrance is gentle and powdery, incredibly feminine. Opening with sparkling, champagne-like Aldehydes, Baghari immediately exudes “head-in-the clouds” dreaminess with soft, seductive hints of Roses and Jasmine. These romantic florals are then accented by gently spiced Amber creating smooth powdery elegance. Finally, Vanilla and Musk coddle the wearer in a soft velvet robe of warmth, creating a scent that is sublimely refined in true Piguet style, enthralling and fantastical.

HOW IT WEARS
Baghari is an Eau De Parfum so should give anywhere from 6 – 8 hours of longevity on the skin. It’s fresh aldehyde, soft floral and citrus opening, balanced artfully with notes of musk and vanilla, create a powdery elegance that settles into a warmer musk dry down. This reinvention of the original formulation bestows a more obvious aldehyde effect than it’s earlier incarnation, and has been likened to the ever classic Chanel No. 5 or White Linen.
We love the way Baghari captures the scent of a woman of classic beauty, or bottle of vintage, afternoon, garden air. Sophisticated, mature and somewhat reserved, but always impeccable. Warm, clean, retro soap and flower power vibes are strong here. Classy and ladylike, alluring vintage luxury, without being dated.
