I’m very happy today to discuss one of my favorite summertime fragrances.
I first experienced L’Humaniste (2009) a year and a half ago during my stop to the famous Scent Bar while on a trip to Los Angeles. I was immediately impressed and a few months later I purchased a full bottle. It has been a warm weather mainstay for me since. As you can see above in the picture I took, I have already gone through almost half of it.
The pleasant mix of notes include: citrus, bergamot, cardamom, bay berry, black pepper, juniper, nutmeg, thyme, peony, gin, oakmoss, tonka bean.
Frapin L’Humaniste opens up like a freshly made gin and tonic. Sparkling citruses mixed with juniper. There is also aromatic pepper combined with other light spices that gives this fragrance definition. Underneath this blend you will find oakmoss and smooth tonka bean.
When I smell this fragrance I think of the color white. It’s casual and relaxed, but classic and refined. It makes me want to get outside and enjoy the summer. Going to various events and local gatherings. Enjoying afternoon cocktails in a backyard with a group of friends. L’Humaniste is social, friendly, self-confident and well-dresed.
Summer is the season to make lasting memories. Find yourself a good fragrance to accompany you and later when you spray it the good times will come flooding back.
