Reviews of Passion Boisée

Frapin Passion Boisee opens with some bite, a citrus burst anchored by spices and woods. It feels somewhat classic, masculine, and reasonably formal. After the initial citrus/mint/menthol burst fades, the connection becomes clear: it reminds me of Creed Spice and Wood, is a more provocative version to the relatively smooth and easy-to-wear Spice and Wood.

There's some vague spiciness via the nutmeg and clove, and it's spicier than Spice and Wood throughout its life. It mainly has the citrus/woody pairing, though, of tangerine and cedar, that make it a semi-fresh, year-round friendly option that's not likely not overwhelm even in hotter months.

Even though it immediately strikes me as a work scent--not so casual but still not so daring or sensual--Passion Boisee is reasonably versatile as far as situation and certainly season, as it's not a superlative performer, nor is it particular loud after its brief opening (less than a half hour). For most of its lifetime, it's unobtrusive enough to be "office-safe," as some say.

This is a stealth tangerine rum woodsie fragrance in that order. Perhaps that's the point of it. Restrained subtle masculinity. Except I would like to decide that with the number of sprays I use. This is not unisex.
Projection is poor from the beginning almost a skin scent but I like it. Maybe not fresh enough for hot humid days when it can exacerbate a sense of dampness otherwise a year round fragrance. Masculine, classy, unique.
Double thumbs up if it projected.

Fragrance: 8/10
Projection: 4/10
Longevity: 7/10

I will report back on this one after a few more tests. Important not to be too subtle.

My first bottle of Frapin and... well... it's nothing new IMO. It's almost identical to LaCoste Essential. I mean 90%+ LaCoste. That being said I feel it is much better than LaCoste Essential so it earns a neutral IMO. Glad I didn't pay full price for this.

After some additional wearings of the fragrance I find this to be a well done spring summer juice that lasts well past the 6 hour mark even in the heat. For the price I would say get a sample before buying...otherwise Enjoy!

The opening is a mix of a mandarin-citrus blast that has a slightly boozy character and is paired with a clove-based spiciness. The citrus is fresh and quite bright, but this is not a refreshing blast, more a glowing freshness. The boozy tone and the spiciness add a bit of darkish texture to the citrus, but this spice is not very harsh and has a certain creamy softness to it. It is less spicy in its merger with the citrus than, for instance Creed's Orange Spice. Quite nice.

The next stage of this creation's development sees the initial notes gradually being replaced by a soft, smooth leather impression that remains a tad generic and unexciting on my skin. Woodsy undertones and a light and soft patchouli are additional accompaniments in the base, with the booziness as well as the spiciness nigh vanished by now.

I get moderate sillage, adequate projection and eight hours of longevity.

A pleasant summer composition made of decent-quality ingredients, not too synthetic and well blended, albeit a bit less vibrant and complex towards the end. Still, warranting a - just - positive score on account of the interesting first part and the decent performance. 3/5

Wow, I really had this wrong the first time around. Passion Boisee is great. It opens with a flash of turpentine which quickly morphs into a bright, sparkling tangerine note, the orange of Terre d'Hermes minus the dirt, but juicier, more realistic and bright. As it develops an excellent creamy oak note emerges, very tastefully spiced as to lend character and some sweet aromatics while remaining clean, sturdy and composed. Along with it, a spicy vanillic rum, never too heavy on the booze, doled out with great attention to balance. The nutmeg and cloves are key players here, as they seem to spice everything in a complementary way, never clashing or seeming out of place. Sometimes clove is way overdone, heavy and thick and dominating everything else, but not here. It's handled perfectly. The suede-like leather in the base fits right in as part of the foundation, well-blended with the other notes in the sense that it's there but subtle, lending a masculine presence to the whole. Everything a about this is elegant, refined and tasteful. It's rich without being loud, complex without falling into a cacophony, and never too obvious. I get a mature, masculine impression from Passion Boisee.

Originally I must have had a stuffy nose or cold when I first wore this, as I could barely smell it. I definitely couldn't pick up on all the little details that make this so good. It's a very nice fragrance, a bit on the reserved side. Do I wish the projection was just a little stronger? Sure. But it still does the job, and I just apply a little more than usual. Overall, Passion Boisee seems suited for low-key days at work and relaxed moments of leisure at home or a favorite hangout. Thumbs up for this winner from Frapin, a subtly complex and elegant scent that is comfortable and easy to wear.

I don't mind this one, Frapin Passion Boisee: sweetness, booze, spice and orange, but it doesn't grab me. This is more like the earthy orange in Terre d'Hemes than the orange from Fahrenheit.
