Niche line Frapin has launched Speakasy, a new woody oriental fragrance:
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 amber deepens this tawny palette. As tough as Bogart and as sensuous as Bacall in a black satin sheath.
Speakeasy was developed by perfumer Marc-Antoine Corticchiato (of Parfum d'Empire); additional notes include davana, orange, geranium, cedar, cistus, white musk and styrax.
Frapin Speakeasy is available now at Nose in France, in 100 ml Eau de Parfum, €96.
