Speak easy: those were the words whispered to clients in illegal bars during the Prohibition… Frapin’s fragrance conjures the film noir allure of an age when danger lurked under the glamour; a tropical bar where Hemingway could have bumped into the characters of To Have and Have Not. Misted glasses, club chairs, smuggled Cuban cigars savored by gentlemen bootleggers under wood ceiling fast churning the damp air… But since today tobacco is a more forbidden pleasure than alcohol, it is this rare olfactive family that the composition belongs.
Refreshed by a mojito accord (rum, mint and lime), this suave blond tobacco is enhanced with the liqueur like richness of immortelle and the hay/almond facets of liatrix and tonka bean. A smooth oriental leather rubbed with rich amber deepens this tawny palette. As tough as Bogart and as sensuous as Bacall in a black satin sheath.
“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.
