« Isle of Man » is a resolutely masculine fragrance, a celebration of the fearless and intrepid for those who laugh in the face of death-defying odds. It salutes free spirits and adrenaline addicts who know that truly living means pushing boundaries. You’re never more alive than when life is on the line.
“Isle of Man” is not merely a perfume inspired by motor racing. It stands for an entire philosophy: living intensely, each second as if it were the last, even if that means coming dangerously close to the edge. Life should be anything but boring.
David Frossard, himself a motorcycle aficionado and lover of extreme sports, entrusted this interpretation to perfumer Aliénor Massenet. Her creation boasts a genuine olfactory signature. The citrusy attack followed by salty floral accords conjures up the heady adrenaline rush of ripping down an ocean-beaten coastline.
“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.
