In his work, poet Edgar Allan Poe, proclaims with a heavy heart his distress when faced with losses, answering each happy memory with: “Nevermore”. “Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December, and each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor. Eagerly I wished the morrow ; vainly I had sought to borrow from my books surcease of sorrow, sorrow for the lost Lenore, for the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels name Lenore Nameless here for nevermore.”
Calligraphed with a raven quill from the recesses of “Night’s Plutonian Shore”, his poem The Raven makes the concept of “now and forever” blossom, a true story steeped in legend. On the poet’s birthday, 19 January, a mysterious visitor leaves three red roses and a flask of Cognac on Edgar Allan Poe’s tomb. An enigmatic gesture, beautiful in its gratuitousness, a dark, baroque universe, purple roses and amber liquid…
“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.
