Fracas Silkening Body Lotion by Robert Piguet


Post by Portia


Hi there Fragrance Fiends,

One of the ideas we grew up with in the 1980s was the idea of layering. I know it was a push by fragrance manufacturers to sell more product but that doesn’t lessen the fact that it really works. I know if I use a moisturiser that is infused with the fragrance I’m wearing that my fragrance will last longer and often have a richer texture. The added benefit is that my skin is soft and glamorous too, so touching it is an even more pleasurable experience.

I bought my bottle of Fracas Silkening Body Lotion a while ago online and I have about half left, it was around the $45 then and I have thought of it as a complete bargain. Sadly I can’t see it almost anywhere anymore except a couple of sets or pricey ones on eBay and the Robert Piguet USA site has them too. i think I’ll be stocking up next time I’m in the US.

For those that don’t know Fracas is a tuberose scent that takes all the super sweet, bubble gum bits of the flower and creates a fun and lighthearted blockbuster that will stop traffic.

So what’s so special about Fracas Silkening Body Lotion? Well it’s PINK! Light pink but pink none-the-less. It’s smooth and sinks into your skin in moments leaving it beautifully perfumed. You could wear the moisturiser alone if you wanted to be softly fragrant all day at work, only your really close intimates would really understand why you are particularly attractive today. It also gives Fracas EdT a much longer fragrant life cycle and boosts projection. Tonight at work I had a compliment on my fragrance after we’d been there over 2 hours, usually I find Fracas softens to a very muted scent by then. Clearly I was still pumping out the Fracas well into the second hour and that makes me happy. The photo below is how Fracas makes me feel: young, lithe, lovely and free.

  1. Hi Portia,
    I don’t use much body lotion but I would love to feel like the little girl in the photo, so perhaps it is time for a change! I layer scents, though…all the time. Yesterday it was Dame Perfumery’s New Musk Man in the morning, vintage Sung in the afternoon and Tauer’s Incense Flash in the evening. Just enough residual of each one to be really interesting;)

    • Ahhhh, I rarely do layer frags but will often wear a couple or a few through the day. My skin eats it so fast that there is rarely overlap.
      Sometimes when I’m testing though I’ll put a different frag in between my thumb and pointer to refresh my nose.
      That was a HUGE frag day BTW.

  2. I was wondering whether you could do this with any non-scented lotion. Have you ever tried that and did it make the fragrance last longer?


    • We have a brand called simple in Australia that I used for a while, it is very softly scented and has the least amount of scent I can detect in anything. It does extend the life of fragrance a bit, sometimes quite a lot.
      Val the Cookie queen swears by LUSH ultra balm.

  3. For some reason, I never care much for the way the lotions and creams that match my fragrances make my skin feel. Almost sticky. I do have Jubilation 25 in the two lotion/creams, and I like the added umph! (But not a huge fan of the feel of either)


    • Wow, interesting Tammmy,
      The Amouage Body Lotion sinks right into my skin so quickly, within 2 minutes I am soft and non sticky.
