Parfums Frapin, a perfumery extension of the famous Cognac brand, is launching a new men's perfume called L'Humaniste (The Humanist) as an homage paid to 16th century writer François Rabelais author of Pantagruel, Gargantua and more. The writer, physician and humanist also happens to be an ancestor of the Frapin family.
L'Humaniste is said to represent the essence of a modern-day humanist and to address itself to a man for whom non-material values are more important than banal consumption,...
who recognizes quality and for whom the core values of tolerance, independence, and freedom as found in the humanist values system of the 16th century are no foreign words.
L'Humaniste was created by fragrance company Robertet. The composition is said to be based on the contrast of fresh, airy notes and warm aromatic ones. It incorporates a fine alcohol accord like Frapin debut perfume 1270 started doing.
Perfume notes include: Gin, juniper, lemon, bergamot, thyme, tonka.
The Eau de Parfum will be available in the standard 100 ml Frapin bottle.
