The emotions of Spring. Descend the main staircase at the Château de Fontpinot, the property belonging to Frapin since the 13th century. Inhale the fragrances of the earth (tobacco, nutmeg, incense). Become intoxicated with the warmth (vanilla, benzoin, cinnamon) and the fruits (grapefruit, orange blossom), under the first rays of sunshine. As the vines become warm, Charente awakens.Wet grass (myrtle) smells sweet on a spring morning. From the ancestral tradition of enriching the earth with recently cut vines, comes the fragrance Terre de Sarment.The vine shoots (sarments in French) are recycled, crushed and reintegrated.

“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.
