The Orchid Man
Eau de Parfum
By P Frapin & Cie
The Orchid Man is Frapin’s tenth fragrance. It draws part of its inspiration from the surprising personality of boxer Georges Carpentier, nicknamed in America as “the Orchid Man”. Boxing, like perfume, is about facing yourself. An encounter of rituals and studied gestures. It is also a moment of violence that must be elegant. Governed by precise rules and respect for the opponent, boxing became a gentleman’s sport at the end of the 19th century. The Orchid Man is a powerful and virile perfume.
Top notes of Bergamot, Lemon, Cayenne Pepper.
Heart notes of Bamboo, Leather, Incense.

Perfumer Jerome Epinette
