    Default New Fragrance: Frapin Speakeasy

    From fragrantica.com:

    The house of Frapin, known for their fine cognacs as well as their remarkable fragrance collection, debuted their newest fragrance, Speakeasy, at the Elements Showcase in New York. Speakeasy was inspired by the illicit nightclubs of Prohibition-era America, known for their decadence and joyful excess. This unisex fagrance also recalls classic men's fragrances with traditional notes of leather and tobacco. Supporting the mix are mint, musk, bergamot and styrax.

    The fragrance will be on the market from September 2012, in the characteristic 3.3 oz. Frapin flacon.

    Going by past offerings, I'm sure Frapin will do this well.

    Does anyone know when Frapin started writing "Eau de Parfum" under the title, on their bottles, instead of "Frapin & Co."?

    Have tried all the previous Frapins but never purchased one -- not sure why. This sounds as though it will have a boozy element to it also. I'm sure they drop some cognac in each bottle.

    Thanks for sharing, since, if it does have one or more boozy notes in it, I am likely to happily try this one.

    I already want to own this! I hope the longevity is fair as Frapin's have such poor longevity and sillage on my skin.

    Excited to try this.
    I never say no to styrax.

    tried it yesterday in Paris, I wanna took Speakeasy home right away but unluckily, it will be release in the end of October. Speakeasy is quite strong and boozy in traditional Frapin style at first, then it gets lighter, drier with leather and tobacco. Not a very complicated scent, Speakeasy is quite manly and playful. It smells like rum and cigar. Longervity and sillage are quite enjoyable, more than 7hours on my skin.

    Thanks for your thoughs, Chocolateguy. Those notes makes me think that this fragrance can be enjoyable for me.

    Sounds like Ambre Ruse. Nah, it could never be as good as that.

    I haven't seen it yet. First in Fragrance is now showing it in-stock.

    About a week ago, when speaking with Alejandro at MiN, he was not sure when it was due to arrive.

    Lucasai, thanks for that link. Makes me want to try the frapin and the Heliotrope. For comparison's sake, the 1270 and Caravelle Epicee are medium projection and medium longevity to me. How would Heliotrop and Speakeasy compare to these two on longevity and projection. From the sound of it, the Heliotrope would last longer and be as projecting if not more.

    Never have had a mojito but the opening of the other Frapins is lotsa booze note, but it dissipates after a 30 minute. Guess the Speakeasy is the same?

    Leather and tobacco? So far no releases in the U.S.

    This scent was done by the owner/perfumer of the Parfums d'Empire line, Marc-Antoine Corticchiato)...interesting.

    Hopefully the mint note doesn't manifest toothpaste. That's a deal-breaker for me.

    It's totally not similar to toothpase! Mint is crisp and lightly herbal, just like in mojito.

    Sounds very nice. Is this any longer-lasting than other Frapins? I found all except Passion Boisee short-lived.

    On me it lasted around 5 hours when I applies lightly.

    Just to update thread, this one didn't work out for me; too faint and short-lived despite generous dosing. A decent smell while it lasted though.
