Frapin Checkmate Eau de Parfum
Sundays on the Frapin estate in Segonzac are for relaxing in the expansive garden, overlooking a beautiful tableau of green woodland and rolling river. Steps away from where some of France’s most beloved cognac is lovingly and carefully aged, Frapin père et fils engage in a spirited battle on the chessboard while sipping on traditional cardamom tea, enjoying their togetherness, neither trying too hard for the checkmate that might bring this perfect moment to an end.
Checkmate is the scent of that idyllic Sunday in the garden, a spring breeze that carries the refreshing fragrance of surrounding groves and ripening citrus and intertwines with the sweetly invigorating cardamom. Smooth, floral leather softens and enhances a refined collection of woods, evoking the straightforward elegance of hand-carved chessmen and lacquered chessboard, soothing and timeless, a bridge between generations. Like their game that neither wants to end, it too will linger for hours, inviting you to experience the unique joy of connection.
