FRANKIE the untold story.
Frankie "the little Frenchman"
We are at times blessed to have those people in our lives that just make our soul smile, to me that is Frankie.
Frankie and I were discussing what would be his ultimate fragrance? and with a touch of instinct and inspiration we hit the sweet spot in theory on spray cards, needless to say to get the actual formula right was another story, day after night of mixing ratios and different strengths until finally what I could smell on that day was captured within a bottle.
Whats in the name?
Frankie, born Francis translating to "the little Frenchman"
Frankie requested something refreshing and uplifting that was citrus based, yet with a heart of warmth and woods... this personally actually reminds me of him in his essence, an uplifting character with a heart of warmth and solidity.
I depict Frankie on the high st of Paris, a bright intelligent young Man with a knowledge beyond His years, out wandering on a fresh day with a spring in his step, brushing past foliage with his hands and haunting bookshops where the scent of antiquity and warmth is abound.
So what does it smell like?
FRANKIE opens with top notes of Mandarin, Petitgrain, Bergamot & Eucalyptus
Middle notes of Lemon Verbena, Black Pepper, Rosewood & Ginger
Base notes of Frankincense, Himalayan Cedarwood & Peru Balsam.
So how does that translate into a perfume, a burst of refreshing citrus with uplifting lemon verbena, a hint of spice from the black pepper as it works its magic and leads you gently into a base of warmth, comfort and antiquity, some notes been imperceptible yet playing their role in the background, such as Eucalyptus and Ginger, they are there yet as an A flat to peak interest.
Frankie will be launched at the Big Vegan Market 2019
