Named for the year the Frapin family established itself in the Cognac region of France (and continues to make cognac to this day), 1270 was created by Beatrice Cointreau, great granddaughter of Pierre Frapin. The fragrance contains scents that surround the creation of cognac. It is a dry, rich and velvety smooth fragrance featuring the flowers of the once-proud Folle Blanche (a grape nearly extinct from the region), the vineyard grass, the wine warehouse, the rich smell of damp earth in the cellars, the wood of new casks, the loamy smell of humus where the ancestral cognacs are stored. Gorgeous is putting it mildly - a true masterpiece.
1270 features top notes of candied orange, nuts, raisins, plum, cocoa, tonka bean and coffee; middle notes of vine flowers, everlasting (immortelle) flower, linden blossom, pepper and spices; and base notes of woods, lignum vitae, honey and vanilla. It is an eau de parfum, edp.
