For the first time, select Robert Piguet fragrances are now available in handy 8ml refillable travel sprays!
Originally named VISA and now V. Originally created in 1945 by Germaine Cellier as a celebration of travel and exploration punctuated by the end of World War 2. V was re-introduced in 2007 and has quickly regained its classic followers, a fragrance for the bold travellers who explored new, adventurous places. Like you would take your visa, so should you take your scent as an independant, modern jet-set traveller.
Leaving a trail in your wake, faithful to Robert Piguet’s original concept, but with a few new charms of its own, V by Robert Piguet is exciting and seductive like an unexpected romantic journey. An iconic fragrance that fuses modern with vintage glamour, a beautifully daring scent that is sexy and animalic.
V opens with an initial sticky sweetness of Ylang Ylang that embraces luscious Bergamot and Pear. Sumptuous layers of Rose, White Peach and Cinnamon unfold in the warm heart, hinting at the scent’s sultry demeanor. In an unforgettable finale, the juxtaposition of milky Sandalwood and gourmand Leather evokes a tempting delicacy.

HOW IT WEARS
Loud at first spritz, V settles down into a soft, smooth and quite frankly, delicious scent that will exude luxury for around 8 hours. It is slightly animalic, alluring and rich in sophistication. The Peach note stands out, giving a gorgeous gourmand warmth. The freshness of Pear then the creaminess of Vanilla and the White Florals round out this iconic scent.
Wearing this scent, it is not hard to imagine why it was such an iconic fragrance. The Peach and Pear have a touch of sweetness as Ylang-Ylang and Rose bloom tastefully and the Leather adds a twist. Like flowers on velvet it feels timeless, elegant and ravenously alluring.
