Niche line Frapin will launch two new fragrances, Laskarina and The Isle Of Man, later this month.
Laskarina ~ "Laskarina is a fruity aromatic fragrance that features a peppery citrus and pear opening over a romantic heart of rose and orange. The citrus fruits and rose accords are radiant, bright, and almost salty due to ambroxan in the base, which mirrors the effect of ambergris. Sweet puffs of incense smoke and oily black pepper swirl upwards through the perfume, giving it a dark, mysterious edge. The contrast between the fresh and bitter aromatics up front and the darker, smokier resins beneath is fascinating on a man or a woman."
Isle of Man ~ "Isle of Man is a fresh, salty marine fragrance that mirrors the tough, stony landscape of the beaches that surround the Isle of Man. A tart, aromatic opening of grapefruit and butter orange flanked by the leafy mintiness of fresh basil is like a breath of fresh air taken at the seaside after a long day cooped up inside. This is followed by a heart of peppery, almost rubbery freesia and sweet, dewy violets that have been doused in a heavy shaking of sea salt, turning everything aromatic, saline, and fresh. A strongly musky, grassy base of vetiver and ironwood represents the dry, green smell of salt grass and reeds to perfection. Wonderfully fresh, without being overly bitter or aquatic, Isle of Man is a very easy to like marine masculine for the modern man."
Frapin Laskarina and The Isle Of Man can be pre-ordered now at Essenza Nobile in Germany, €125 each for 100 ml Eau de Parfum.
