Frapin honours Laskarina’s memory with a perfume of character. After all, she is a truly multi-faceted muse: part wife, mother, businesswoman and adventurer. She was unfettered, fearless, and her own woman – all qualities shared by the great heroines of history and the early feminists. More than just a perfume, Laskarina is a tribute to Womankind. It applauds those heroins of yesterday who blazed the trail for strong women today, and salutes those who are still fighting against injustice.
Amélie Bourgeois rose to the challenge of finding the notes for such a strong-willed perfume. She built a floral, spicy juice, gentle yet feisty, reflecting the paradox of Laskarina. You could say it embodies the iron fist in a velvet glove. Starting off on fresh, sweet notes, it ends on unyielding accords of pepper and amber.
“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.
