“My footprint in sand erased by a wave… my eyes get lost in the dark blue sea... barefeet in the warm wind, under the burning sun… I await you… come… find me”
Escentric 01 focuses on Iso E Super at 65% of the fragrance compound in an abbreviated formula designed to maximise the molecule’s efflorescence. It contains lime peel, hedione (green jasmine bud), orris, balsamic notes, and fresh musk.
Escentric 02 contains 13.5% Ambroxan* in a formula designed to amplify its mineral note with hedione (green jasmine bud), a ‘gin and tonic’ accord, “and a hint of the Austrian lemonade called almdudler”. Schoen describes the final effect as ‘super-longlasting freshness into the drydown, together with a subtle sensuality.’

Against this backdrop, some of the most characteristic aromas of cognac conjure an evocative setting. The warm Christmas smell of tangerine spiked with cloves. The burning spices in a glass of rum. The smoothness of a leather armchair or of a jacket worn soft by years of love. A whiff of night-time forest through an open window…
It is against this thrilling backdrop that Frapin cognacs were rewarded for their excellence. Pierre Frapin received the gold medal from Gustave Eiffel himself. Mr Eiffel used his genius to create indestructible store houses for Mr Frapin
Re-orchestrated by Sidonie Lancesseur, its warm-hued palette runs from golden pineapple to candied orange, ambery raisins, purple prunes and russet hazelnuts to the roasted duskiness of cocoa and coffee. Facets of vanilla and smoky guaiac wood evoke an outbreak of vine branches in the fireplace...
