If, like a query that resonates when questioning oneself alone in front of the mirror. IF, the English title of Rudyard Kipling’s famous poem, less well rendered in French by “Tu seras un homme mon fils” [You’ll be a man, my son]. An imperfect translation because in order to become this ideal man, first this litany of ‘Ifs’ must be answered. Indeed, much more than a definition, Kipling invites us to a path, to an asceticism and it is ‘if’ and only ‘if’ that then can we claim to become this essence of the man as defined by the poet.
“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.
