Frapin The Orchid Man EDP is named for Georges Carpentier, an early 20th century French boxer whose elegant style and myriad accomplishments in and out of the ring made him a Parisian icon. Built around the intriguing duality of boxing, a sport with both intensely cerebral and shockingly violent demands, The Orchid Man opens with action, a rough-and-tumble black pepper stinging like a well-placed jab, while airy bergamot lends a zesty, fruit-like feel. The heart is a jasmine and leather accord both unapologetically masculine and also proudly floral, like the orchid boutonniere that Carpentier was famed for wearing about town. A mossy, delicately earthy base wears casual but dignified, lending The Orchid Man the type of adaptable versatility that boxers train their entire lives for. Sophisticated yet instantly likable, stout yet proudly delicate, The Orchid Man is a fragrance for the renaissance man in us all.
