Under the artistic leadership of David Frossard, Frapin creates exceptional perfumes that draw inspiration from their history of cognac-making.
Since 1270, their distillery has produced fine, small-batch volumes of the spirit and, in 2006, turned their attention to producing another exquisite form of liquid. 1270, their first fragrance, is an ode to their cognac past. Akin to a great cognac, it reveals a perfect balance between the richness of precious woods, the sensuality of white honey and the exotism of sweet vanilla.
This complex and tasty creation also pays tribute to a particular variety of wine: La Folle Blanche. A perfume for hedonists.
Risk-takers be warned: Danger announces itself with a princely aromatic punch of lavender and tarragon, alongside a pinch of spicy clove and cumin.
Roja Dove’s addictive scent is as refined as it is daring, entering into a seduction of creamy jasmine, before melting into velvety vanilla and tonka bean. Confident, strong and esoteric, Danger is a temptation too good to resist.
Clive Christian creates fragrances that are both complex and visionary.
The Crown Perfume Company, the brand’s predecessor, was the only house granted to use the image of Queen Victoria's crown, a permission that remains today with each crown-capped bottle — an enduring symbol of splendour and prestige. No.1 extends the regal feel of its gleaming gold exterior with an exquisite composition, one that is understated yet distinctive. Known for using the finest, most precious materials, No.1 Masculine is no exception. Spicy citrus top notes fall into powdery musks and vetiver, revealing themselves with rich warmth, resting atop a 50-year-old Indian sandalwood base.
Considered the oldest apothecary in the world, the Florence-based pharmacy has been producing traditional preparations — cosmetic and personal care items — such as balms, ointments, soaps and perfumes, since 1221.
The newest iteration of the fragrance retains the essence of tuscan tobacco leaves and softens with a vanilla and musk base.
Parfums de Marly emulates eighteenth century French elegance. Aiming to create a masculine fragrance full of contrasts, here they deliver an original scent bursting with vitality.
A journey of light and shadow, Haltane is a balance of sophistication and freshness, a venture of tradition and innovation fit for all occasions — a bold woody fragrance for gentlemen of the generations.
Working with natural saffron sourced from Greece, Guichard produces an addictive, vibrant, vividly textural fragrance, accentuated by Somalian incense oil and ambroxan — a dry woods of truly universal appeal.
