Parfums Frapin’s latest creation marks a break from the brand’s scent profile. Paradis Perdu celebrates the Frapin estate’s heritage with Art Nouveau. 1889… Time stood still in the temporary glass palaces of the Paris World Fair. The pavilions, showing their iron lacework undersides, celebrated booming industry and Art nouveau. It is against this thrilling backdrop that Frapin cognacs were rewarded for their excellence. Pierre Frapin received the gold medal from Gustave Eiffel himself. History goes not tell us what was said between the man of the soil and the man of iron. The estate in Charente, however, bears witness to what was done. Mr Eiffel used his genius to create indestructible store houses for Mr Frapin.
