Frapin Orchid Man draws its inspiration from the surprising personality of boxer Georges Carpentier, nicknamed in America as "the Orchid Man". Built around an animal leather accord that gives the scent its signature; power, elegance and the iconic aspect of boxing gloves. Patchouli brings hot and humid tones that conjure up the atmosphere in a boxing gym. Sparkling and energising Calabrian bergamot and Madagascan black pepper are a reminder of all the energy used up during a fight.

EDITOR'S NOTES

02

An absolute knockout! Capturing the vivacious atmosphere of a Parisian cocktail bar and a well blended cocktail, The Orchid Man is a careful balance of sweet and sour. Crisp aromatics are met with the sizzling energy of black pepper and citrus fruits, enlivened with the intoxicating note of patchouli. In typical Frapin style, this has a long woody dryness at its core tilted with fruitiness. Magnetism on skin.

THINGS TO KNOW

04

An all-rounder, Georges Carpentier was an elegant, resourceful man who skilfully knew how to reinvent himself at each period of his life. A boxer, brave man and proud citizen, the turn of the 1930s saw this momentous man reveal his other talents. After the boxing ring, he took to the stage; Carpentier the showman went from Paris to Hollywood, before returning to open one of the first cocktail bars in Paris. A modern man who was always ready for new adventures.
