1270 - Eau de Parfum
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.
