The opening lime and rum accord is soothing and very masculine while being fresh and eye opening. From here though the lime burns out in the first hour and the tobacco blend becomes more and more prominent. This is a very finely blended tobacco fragrance that settles into a softer and softer comfort blend as you wear it. Very subtle after three hours, but still nice to smell. It whispers soft tobacco plus a hint of leather, an idea of incense, plus a memory of lime zest in the background. SPEAKEASY is blended by perfumer Marc-Antoine Corticciato who brought his magic from the Parfums d' Empire creations (Wazamba, Azemour, Ambre Russe, Cuir Ottomans etc) to the Frapin perfume lineup. Like all Frapin fragrances, along with their world class cognac brandy's, the blending here is seamless and the results are extraordinarily fine.
