Frapin 1697 Review

Frapin 1697_100ml_EdP

My first olfactory contact with Frapin was by way of L’Humaniste, which, sadly, turned out to be unsatisfactory (at least from my point of view!). Then, to my surprise I discovered Speakeasy and things began to look nicer. Moving on to this chapter, my most recent revelation is 1697, a masculine oriental spicy launched in […]

But, let’s not forget that Lubin is a classic French niche line (established in Paris in 1798!), therefore any new release that bears this […]
