The story behind this fragrance:

Henri Frapin likes to relax on these springtime Sundays in the garden opposite the property, built in 1702 and located above the production site.
He contemplates this region made up of woodland, rivers and pastures where he was born and which is in his blood.
He considers the manna provided by this nectar that the family has produced since 1889. His favourite time is when his son joins him at around 11am when the sun’s rays warm
up this headland of forest above Segonzac.
The chessboard stands ready. His son sits and wordlessly resumes this metaphorical battle, the togetherness with his father in the pleasures of the game.

The spring breeze brings with it the refreshing fragrances of the surrounding groves. The sun warms the citrus fruits which ripen in the terracotta pot on the table while the iris and heliotropes which line the path leading to the perron discard their coverings of dew and open up to fill the air with their scents.
Henri serves his son his traditional cardamom tea, a spice which shares its origins with this age-old game.
Both players strive to checkmate the other while at the same time putting off the moment with a view to prolonging these special moments, this bridge between two generations, this
connection of fatherly love which will bond them together forever.

About

Frapin

Timeless, made from only the best materials, tradition, and love for the beautiful and the good.” That’s the tag-line of the Frapin family.

They are mostly known for their cognac, but use their knowledge and tradition to also develop perfumes. It is easy to see that brandy is their inspiration, just look at their manufacturing process, fragrances, and overall look of the perfumes.

The perfume bottles are based upon a bottle of brandy, and the cap is made from beech, which is a reference to the barrels where the brandy matures.

Whether we talk about their cognac or perfumes, they must always be the embodiment of French culture and refinement.

1270, l’Humaniste, The Orchid Man, Bois Blanc, If by RK, Isle of Man, and 1270 Extreme are just a few of the perfumes which are part of the Frapin gamma.

“It would take me more than a lifetime to explore the complexity of women. 

Juliette reflects this irresistible quest to decipher the mystery of Femininity. 

Since the beginning, I have attempted to unravel, layer by layer, the facets of women with a capital W. 

With this latest opus, I wanted to unite them all. 

Sometimes Femme Fatale, sometimes Romantic, sometimes Boyish, «Ego Stratis» embraces all those contradictions while blurring the lines. 

This accord, with its predominantly citrus and aquatic tones, is an ode to gender fluidity. 

A modern interpretation of Cologne, an invitation to play with the multiple facets of one’s ego.” - Romano Ricci

Cecile Zarokian, a wonderful & great independent perfumer, created no less than 2 perfumes for the current newly reshaped Library Collection. 
The first one, Silver Oud, is a manifestation of the tension between idealism and realism, the contradiction between thinking and feeling, and the power of mimetic desire.
The gold is a tribute to the Australian Gold Rush of the 19th century. 
Goldfield & Banks celebrates this natural wealth, as well as the abundance of botanicals which grow out of this soil.
Silky Woods and Purple Suede are the first two perfumes composing Goldfield & Banks luxurious Botanical Series.​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
Encased in molten gold, these perfumes celebrate the richness of the botanicals grown in Australia and the surrounding islands.​​​​​​​​
