Robert Piguet is a French perfume house founded by couturier Robert Piguet. Born in Switzerland and destined for a career in finance, Piguet chose to depart for Paris at age 17, against his family's wishes, to pursue a career in fashion. Piguet found employment at Redfern, and then with influential early 20th century fashion designer Paul Poiret. Piguet met famed perfumer Germaine Cellier in the 1940s and worked with her to create perfumes that suited his elegant and modern post-war fashions. The first scent, Bandit, a leathery chypre launched in 1944, was introduced in conjunction with Piguet's runway collection that featured women in masks, with toy guns and knives, evoking a "bad boy" image.
