Frapin 1270 should get a lot more attention around here! WOW... okay so after spending some more time sampling this, I must say I'm struck. I just clicked "buy now". Full bottle worthy - absolutley!
Here's the notes list:
exotic woods, spice, raisin, vine flowers, pepper, candied orange, nut, hazelnut, prune, cocoa, coffee, leather, woods, white honey, vanilla
To address the sweetness. I'll say I'm not big on sweet fragrances. They feel to 'young', and I'm only 26 and I feel most of them are a bit childish. I've always steared away from them. This however, while somewhat sweet, inspires confidence, instead of feeling self concious like other fragrances (Rochas Man/Bond New Harlem to name a few for example, I felt too girly).
This is sweet, but in a reserved/refined/spicy kinda way. Its a MUCH more dignified, polished Angel Pure Malt. I honestly don't even want to compare this to Pure Malt I feel its in an enitrley diff league.
I feel this is a masculine fragrance instead of unisex. While sweet, the exotic woods, spice, pepper and leather keep it in the masculine range to me.
Excellent fragrance. Masterpiece? I could see why Luckyscent said so.
