Niche line Frapin has launched Checkmate, a new fragrance.
Henri Frapin likes to relax on these springtime Sundays in the garden…His favourite time is when his son joins him at around 11am when the sun’s rays warm up this headland of forest above Segonzac.
The chessboard stands ready. His son sits and wordlessly resumes this metaphorical battle, the togetherness with his father in the pleasures of the game.The spring breeze brings with it the refreshing fragrances of the surrounding groves. The sun warms the citrus fruits which ripen in the terracotta pot on the table while the iris and heliotropes which line the path leading to the perron discard their coverings of dew and open up to fill the air with their scents.
Henri serves his son his traditional cardamom tea, a spice which shares its origins with this age-old game. Both players strive to checkmate the other while at the same time putting off the moment with a view to prolonging these special moments, this bridge between two generations, this connection of fatherly love which will bond them together forever.
The notes include bergamot, lemon, cardamom, green leather, heliotrope, iris, suede, Virginian cedar, cashmere woods and modern woods.
Frapin Checkmate is available in 100 ml Eau de Parfum.
