P. Frapin & Cie

The quintessence of land and time. Of sensuality and emotion. Of French know-how and art de vivre... Since 1270, the artisanal, family-owned Frapin has been refining its methods of producing cognac, controlling each step of the process. It is extend to approach and underline the relationship between two exceptional crafts, the House of Frapin have decided to offer scents inspired by their cognacs, history and their land.
Like the production of Frapin cognacs, the composition of the fragrances is about giving time to time. Time for developing finely-honed skills over the centuries. Time for sourcing and selecting the most beautiful raw materials. Time for showcasing their richness in the most sophisticated compositions.

1270 - Eau de Parfum

$ 4.00

The first perfume in the Frapin collection was conceived as a tribute to the origins of the Frapin family, who settled in the Charente in 1270, and inspired by the grape variety from which cognac was once distilled, now replaced with Ugni Blanc: the Folle Blanche. 

‘Folle’ means ‘mad’, and with its cornucopia of gourmand aromas, 1270 is indeed so madly delicious you won’t know whether to drink it or spray it on your skin. As for ‘blanche’, it’s French for ‘white’, though 1270 is anything but: its warm-hued palette runs from golden pineapple to candied orange, ambery raisins, purple prunes and russet hazelnuts to the roasted duskiness of cocoa and coffee. 

The mouth-watering fruit, nut, spice and vanilla accords of 1270 conjure the complex aroma known as the rancio, which is developed by the oldest cognacs. The chocolate and coffee notes, underlined with a whiff of Havana tobacco, hint at the flavours that best complement the Frapin elixirs. The light scent of the vine flower and the honeyed fragrance of the lime blossom melting into a white honey accord blow a gentle spring breeze on this fall-tinged fragrance; the smoky vanilla facets of gaiac wood conjure a crackling blaze of vine shoots in the chimney… A distillation of gourmand pleasures that will turn your skin into a sensuous feast, re-orchestrated by perfumer Sidonie Lancesseur.

 

  • Top Notes: Candied orange, nuts, dried grapes, prunes, cocoa, tonka bean and coffee
  • Middle Notes: Vine flowers, linden, pepper, spices, everlasting flowers
  • Base Notes: Precious woods, guaiac wood, vanilla and white honey

"At Frapin, we work and live far from the major cities. Our personal and professional lives follow the circadian rhythm of days and nights, the changing of the seasons, the wind blowing in the trees.

This closeness to nature sustains us more than one might think. We model nature and are modelled by it, surrounded as we are by meadows, vines, rivers and woods.

This proximity is the hallmark of our style, our essence, our elegance. We admire wood, work it, drink it and smell it. This wood is our age-old wisdom. We listen to its lessons and secrets. Its verticality shows us the only way forward, that of ascending. It is at times hot, enveloping, aromatic or deep. It strongly underscores our style; that of Bois Blanc." ...  P. Frapin

Isle of Man - Eau de Parfum

$ 4.00

“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. 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.

  • Top Notes: Grapefruit, bitter orange and basil
  • Heart Notes: Salt accord, freesia and violet
  • Base Notes: Essence of guaiac wood, Haitian vetiver and musk

L'Humaniste - Eau de Parfum

$ 4.00

It is in the Renaissance that perfume, a princely past-time in Italian courts, became an art in France. And when François Rabelais imagined the Abbey of Thelema as a utopian centre of humanist culture, he included the use of the most delicate fragrances – rose water, orange blossom water and ‘angel water’ – among the refined pleasures of his ‘handsome, well-built and well-natured’ monks and nuns. 

It is to François Rabelais, the most illustrious member of the dynasty, that the house of Frapin has dedicated L’Humaniste, a fragrance as bracing and limpid as the curious, open minds of Renaissance men. 

The scent opens with a soaring burst of citrus vibrant with spices: zesty green cardamom, burning woody black pepper, pink peppercorn, sweet nutmeg… Its playful ‘gin’ accord is a wink to Rabelaisian humor and to the oracle of the Divine Bottle consulted by Pantagruel.

Bolstered by aromatic juniper and thyme, it tilts L’Humanist towards a distinctly masculine register, softened by a green, rosy peony in the heart notes, and by the almond, tobacco and hay facets of tonka bean of the base notes. A fresh, bright fougère fragrance composed by perfumer Sidonie Lancesseu.

  • Top Notes: Lemon, bergamot, cardamom, pink berries and black pepper
  • Heart Notes: Juniper berries, nutmeg, thyme and peony
  • Base Notes: Gin, oak moss and tonka bean

    Henri Frapin likes to relax on these springtime Sundays in the garden opposite the property, built in 1702 and located above the production site. He contemplates this region made up of woodland, rivers and pastures where he was born and which is in his blood. He considers the manna provided by this nectar that the family has produced since 1889. His favourite time is when his son joins him at around 11am when the sun’s rays warm up this headland of forest above Segonzac.

    The chessboard stands ready. His son sits and wordlessly resumes this metaphorical battle, the togetherness with his father in the pleasures of the game.The spring breeze brings with it the refreshing fragrances of the surrounding groves. The sun warms the citrus fruits which ripen in the terracotta pot on the table while the iris and heliotropes which line the path leading to the perron discard their coverings of dew and open up to fill the air with their scents.

    Henri serves his son his traditional cardamom tea, a spice which shares its origins with this age-old game. Both players strive to checkmate the other while at the same time putting off the moment with a view to prolonging these special moments, this bridge between two generations, this connection of fatherly love which will bond them together forever.

    • Top Notes: Bergamot essence from Italy, lemon essence from Italy, cardamom essence from India
    • Heart Notes: Green leather, heliotrope flower, iris
    • Base Notes: Suede, essence of Virginian cedarwood, cashmere wood

This lesson that needs to be repeated every day in order to become what we are" David Frossard, artistic director of Parfums Frapin.
