    Default New Fragrance by Frapin: Nevermore




    (from Fragrantica)

    The enduring legends surrounding the author (Poe) and his most famous work have inspired a new olfactive story. French cognac and perfume-maker Frapin pays tribute to the beautiful dark universe of Poe with their new fragrance, Nevermore.

    A woody fragrance that highlights rose, cedar and black pepper, complemented by floral notes, aldehydes and spices on an amber base, Nevermore is an Eau de Parfum available in a 100 ml traditional Frapin flacon with a wooden cap. The fragrance is currently for sale in France at Jovoy and in the UK at Bloom.



    A dark release by Frapin based on the life and work of Edgar Allen Poe?


    Sounds interesting.

    This sounds interesting. I hope this one is as dark as a raven.

    Doesn't sound very dark. Cedar, black pepper, amber and aldehydes?? All light-ish.

    3. Dior - Vetiver
    4. by Kilian - Incense Oud

    7. Armani Privé - Oud Royal
    8. Brückner - Aoud 1
    9. Creed - Royal English Leather

    So far the only Frapin I have truly liked is L'Humaniste. However, being a fan of Poe and the macabre I would like to sample this. For those of you who try or buy this immediately please let us know your opinion.

    Interesting but I hope they have made it with longevity in mind.

    I have a feeling that this one probably looks better on paper than it actually is. But, as a Poe fan, I'm hoping for the best...

    ...Frapin makes some fine cognacs; they should leave it by that...!

    First impression is that it is spicier than I figured with the nutmeg and saffron mix but a spicy woody scent nevertheless with a nice cedar accord. Have only smelled it briefly since I just got it. Will soon give it a full day's wearing. As I don't distinguish between seasons or time of day when wearing fragrances, can't really answer your last question. Sorry.

    Thanks hednic! This sounds quite exotic. If performance is good, I might be putting this one at the top of my list!
