From P. Frapin:

"If, like a query that resonates when questioning oneself alone in front of the mirror. IF, the English title of Rudyard Kipling’s famous poem, less well rendered in French by “Tu seras un homme mon fils” [You’ll be a man, my son]. An imperfect translation because in order to become this ideal man, first this litany of ‘Ifs’ must be answered. Indeed, much more than a definition, Kipling invites us to a path, to an asceticism and it is ‘if’ and only ‘if’ that then can we claim to become this essence of the man as defined by the poet.
The fragrances by the House of Frapin offer a masculine perfumery inherited from the 19th century. A century of poets, merchants, travellers and adventurers, perfumers and distillers of alcohol and of emotions.

The quintessence of land and time. Of sensuality and emotion. Of French know-how and art de vivre... Since 1270, the artisanal, family-owned Frapin has been refining its methods of producing cognac, controlling each step of the process. It is extend to approach and underline the relationship between two exceptional crafts, Frapin have decided to offer scents inspired by our cognacs, our history and our land."
