Frapin Isle of Man is a nod to family member and motorsport enthusiast Albert, drawing inspiration from motorcycle racing, the Tourist Trophy (TT) in particular. It is resolutely masculine and is a fresh, salty marine fragrance that mirrors the tough, stony landscape of the beaches that surround the Isle of Man. A tart, aromatic opening of grapefruit and bitter orange flanked by the leafy mintiness of fresh basil is like a breath of fresh air taken at the seaside after a long day cooped up inside. Made in France.
Editor's Notes: The boozy theme is not lost in Isle of Man, with Frapin currently favouring fresh and vibrant fragrances. Not so far away from The Orchid Man, Isle of Man harnesses the animated freshness of bitter-sour grapefruit, harmonised with the crisp green bite of basil. A mimosa cocktail perhaps? Also look out for a salty accord, achieved through sea salt, freesia, and bitter orange.
