French Cognac house Frapin has launched a quartet of new fragrances:
Terre de Sarment (shown) ~ "Terre de Sarment opens with a clean, innocent, soapy note and gets more complicated and sensuous with every passing moment. Exuberant orange blossom intertwines with tendrils of incense and spice over the deep purr of vanilla, benzoin and tobacco." Additional notes include grapefruit, neroli, cumin, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Esprit de Fleurs ~ "A subtle and elegant floral that is as dry as brut champagne -- airy and crystalline and not the least bit sugary." Featuring bergamot, tangerine, grapefruit, basil, pepper, pink berries, orris, jasmine, rose, vanilla, cedar and vetiver.
Caravelle Epicée ~ "Caravelle Epicée takes its name from the spice ships of long ago, but there is nothing remotely aquatic or damp here. This is heat and spice -- the dry interplay of pepper and coriander, nutmeg and tobacco, patchouli and precious sandalwood." Additional notes include thyme, gaiac wood and amber.
Passion Boisée ~ "Clean and elegant and dry, this is a fragrance suitable for hobnobbing in distinguished company; sinking into a leather club chair in front of a crackling fire and sipping a fine cognac while holding forth confidently on the matters of the day." The notes are tangerine, nutmeg, rum, oak moss, clove, leather, patchouli and cedarwood.
Frapin Terre de Sarment, Esprit de Fleurs, Caravelle Epicée and Passion Boisée are $140 each for 100 ml Eau de Parfum at Luckyscent.
