Laskarina, Frapin’s latest perfume, is an ode to femininity – not the skin-deep feminine allure so often hailed by perfume, but rather a celebration of the strength and determination of women. Fittingly then, Frapin looked to Laskarina Bouboulina as muse. The heroine of the Greek War of Independence in 1821 paints the very picture of an independent, tenacious woman. When she was left a wealthy widow in 1811, she used that inheritance to invest in four warships and push back the Turkish invasion.

Frapin honours Laskarina’s memory with a perfume of character. After all, she is a truly multi-faceted muse: part wife, mother, businesswoman and adventurer. She was unfettered, fearless, and her own woman – all qualities shared by the great heroines of history and the early feminists. More than just a perfume, Laskarina is a tribute to Womankind. It applauds those heroines of yesteryear who blazed the trail for strong women today, and salutes those who are still fighting against injustice. Legends like the first woman to run the Boston Marathon fifty years ago, Kathrine Switzer, who was forcefully opposed by the organizer mid-race. Every right won is a victory, the prize of a fierce battle fought by women who always refused to give up.

Amélie Bourgeois rose to the challenge of finding the notes for such a strong-willed perfume. She built a floral, spicy jus, gentle yet feisty, reflecting the paradox of Laskarina. You could say it embodies the iron fist in a velvet glove. Starting off on fresh, sweet notes, it ends on unyielding accords of pepper and amber.

Top notes: Bergamot, Grapefruit, Pink Pepper, Pear
Heart notes: Orange Blossom, Bulgarian Rose
Base notes: Frankincense, Black Pepper, Iris, Ambroxan

Don’t blind buy this one!

After seeing a review and reading the description of the notes, Laskarina sounded like a fragrance that I would love. Since I couldn’t get a sample easily I decided to blind buy. Well, I won’t be doing that again!! Once it hits my skin I get bizarre notes of eraser and cola. It dries down to something more tolerable but not something that I can wear. I would not put this in the floral/citrus category. I have tried to gift this to my husband/daughter/son but they have all politely declined!
