Frapin - Speakeasy Eau de Parfum 100 ML
Speak easy: those were the words whispered to clients in illegal bars during the Prohibition…
Frapin’s fragrance conjures up the film noir allure of an age when danger lurked under the glamour; a tropical bar where Hemingway could have bumped into the characters of To Have and Have Not. Misted glasses, club chairs, smuggled Cuban cigars savoured by gentlemen bootleggers under wooden ceilings where fans slowly churn the damp air…
But since today tobacco is a more forbidden pleasure than alcohol, it is to this rare olfactive family that this composition belongs.
Refreshed by a Mojito accord (rum, mint and lime), this suave blond tobacco is enhanced with the liqueur‐like richness of immortelle and the hay/almond facets of liatrix and tonka bean. A smooth oriental leather rubbed with rich ambergris deepens this tawny palette. As tough as Bogart and as sensuous as Bacall in a black satin sheath.
For this whiff of clandestine pleasures, Frapin has called on Marc-Antoine Corticchiato, the founder of Parfum d’Empire, who is both a perfumer whose fragrances conjure intensely sensuous worlds and a scientist who has studied the secrets of scent production in aromatic plants. In this very first collaboration with another house, Marc-Antoine Corticchiato demonstrates the scope and versatility of his powerful style.
