.
Blondine is a sweet, musky, floral fragrance for men and women; which is said to be a seductive and playful fragrance, crafted to intrigue the senses — inspired by the 1920’s French fairy tale. This fascinating fragrance is both spirited and tantalizing; which personally, I find absolutely gorgeous! It smells delightful, sensual and totally irresistible! Blondine performs very well, it’s incredibly well-blended; although this is the type of fragrance that might be challenging for most men to wear, due to its pronounced floral presence, I am undoubtedly enamored by its scent. This fragrance could be worn casually, but I prefer to save this one for special occasions. Day or night, this decadent and provocative fragrance will delight your senses with its soft, alluring and ethereal beauty.

Teisenddu Review by Prasida Perfume

FRASSAI

"(a) warm burst of chocolate cake and spices"

Teisenddu Eau de Parfum, FRASSAÏ. Ph: Prasida Perfume

Teisenddu Eau de Parfum, FRASSAÏ. Ph: Prasida Perfume

Teisenddu embodies the spirit of the people who go to the wilderness and make a life for themselves, coaxing a dry and arid climate into something hospitable and inviting. The warm burst of chocolate cake and spices melt into a heart of dried fruit and leather.
It finishes on a whispered floral, like a memory of the journey from Wales on a ship called The Mimosa. This is a powdery soft floral accord, like a vision of the civilization left behind, but lingering on in the warm slices of chocolate fruit cake shared with grandchildren.
Note: This is not a sweet gourmand. It’s warm and cozy, but also aromatic, like baking with chocolate and spices. Also, the leather note reminds me of vetiver.

FRASSAÏ Blondine, Tian Di & Verano Porteño Review by Perfumart

FRASSAI

FRASSAÏ BLONDINE, TIAN DI AND VERANO PORTEÑO REVIEWED BY CASSIANO SILVA OF PERFUMART BRAZIL.

Perfumart

Perfumart

o sândalo confere o teor lenhoso e macio, enquanto o almíscar traz uma sensualidade latente, que reforça, ainda mais, a durabilidade do perfume sobre a pele.
Frassai Blondine fragrance review by Perfumart Brazil
Com o passar do tempo a fragrância se transforma, como se mostrasse uma princesa frágil que precisa se defender das ameaças da floresta, conforme o dia vira noite. Então, a delicadeza floral dá lugar a cristais de caramelo salgado, que antecipam a chegada de uma faceta mais gourmand. Por fim, um cheiro de camurça macia surge e mostra um lado menos feminino da fragrância, que irá permanecer até o final.
Frassai Verano Porteño Perfume review by Perfumart
É o tipo de perfume que transmite alegria e que tem cor, como andar por um jardim de flores amarelas e laranjas sobre uma relva bem verdinha. É um floral leve, refrescante e que combina com as manhãs de sol da América do Sul.

Old-world elegance and restraint with modern, unashamed sexiness

FRASSAI

Lauryn Beer, senior editor at Cafleurebon walks us through her experience as she samples A Fuego Lento eau de parfum.


“While the bright lushness of its early stages recedes, A Fuego Lento lingers for many hours. The orange blossom-coumarin meld into a dreamy sensuality and the animal notes purr quietly like the fading strains of the guitar. A fragrance that pulls you where lights are low and couples disappear into the darkest corners of the dance floor. Notes: Blackcurrant buds, orange flowerjasmine sambaccivetsuede, flouve odorante, tolu balsam.”

A story so riveting that it inspires a perfume. Teisenddu Fragrance Review by Cafleurebon

FRASSAI

What happens when a true historical and family story is so riveting that it inspires a #perfume? And the #fragrance is every good as the tale? @frassai #teisenddu composed by #roxannekirkpatrick a young #Givaudan perfumer who studied with #oliviergillotin met #nataliaouteda in NY and two powerful women cocreated an equally powerful #fragrance. Based on a tale of the clipper ship Mimosa that brought 153 #welsh people to #patagoniaargentina in 1865, the scent is named for the #tortanegra of Natalia's youth. This darkly gourmand perfume is more than a sweet treat, complex with mossy, leathery and a nod to #mimosa. As summer wanes and we crave cozy scents this is one you will want in your collection.

Gracias @scents__hunter! Thank you for the lovely review 🧡

#andthewinneris #frassai #teisenddu“Teisenddu” de @frassai 
Cuando un sentimiento atraviesa a un creador/a de fragancias y se transforma en acordes de un perfume, tiene grandes posibilidades de tocarte el alma y es por eso que me conmueve tanto la perfumeria independiente. 
Otra vez Frassaï deleitándonos. Haciendo su magia alquimista. Convirtiendo imágenes de un pasado Galés en un tremendo Gourmand abrazador. Su creadora, Naty Outeda, elegante y detallista, relata olfativamente la llegada y el recorrido de sus ancestros en las tierras del sur de Argentina. 
Una abuela, un viaje en barco desde tierras lejanas, una torta galesa, especias, enebro, frutas secas, mimosa, cristales de azúcar negra, cuero, etc. 
Llevo días probándolo. Siento que es una belleza (en el sentido pleno de la palabra), una belleza que muta, que no es siempre igual en mi piel. Me abraza, me susurra, me acaricia. No para de sorprenderme. A veces mas nuez. A veces cuero. A veces el aroma de una cálida taza de té humeante. O simplemente la torta galesa, dándome una clase acerca del perfecto ensamblado de aromas y virtudes ancestrales en una receta. 
Su fragancia es cálida, amable y de mucha personalidad. Redonda. Adorable. He aquí un hermano a la altura de Blondine, Verano Porteño y Tiandi. La familia de Frassai esta mas grande y se enriquece con este nuevo lujo líquido que permite que recuerdos de otro te hagan sonreir por bienestar e iluminen tu interior con amor familiar. 
Teisenddu cuenta todo eso y además tiene otro secreto: vino para atender el alma, posee sabidurías antiguas, la del viento, la del mar y la que se aprende con mucho caminar. 
Si te gusta lo bueno: No te pierdas Teisenddu 🙌🏽

New Review from The Scented Hound

Blondine by Frassaï

SMELLS LIKE: Hammock dreaming in a sun kissed jungle.

Gustave Courbet - The Scented Hound reviews Blondine perfume by Frassaï

Rating:  5 out of possible 5 bones

Blondine graces the skin with a smooth buttery cream that’s deep without being heavy. 

There’s a dreamy quality that embodies the perfume and it seems to hover over you as if it’s part of your natural aura.

Inside the envelope the letter says: with love, n... Blondine

FRASSAI

Frassaï • Blondine __ 1981 год. Весна. Сотрудник почты нашёл завалявшийся конверт. Ему уже полгода. Он так и остался неотправленным.


Внутри конверта письмо, на котором написано: С любовью, N... и аромат, нанесённый на бумагу. Нежный и спокойный. Легкий и пронзительный... Blondine пахнет любовным посланием. Небольшим трепетом при чтении и эмоциями. Ноты тигровой лилии и листа груши дают аромату нежное начало. Ашока, какао и карамель в самом сердце. И база из белого мускуса и замши. _ Какой аромат сегодня носите вы? Which one is your #sotd?)

Frassaï • Blondine
__
1981 Spring. A postal officer found an envelope. It's been six months. Inside the envelope the letter says: with love, n... and the scent on paper. Gentle and calm. Light and shrill... _smells like a love message. A little awe of reading and emotion. _notes of tiger lilies and pear leaf give the scent a gentle beginning. Ashoka, cocoa and caramel in the heart. And the base of white musk and suede.

"Skinlove #tiandi @frassai new fox favourite from sensual jewellery & perfume house founded by Argentine @natalia_ou Fine jewellery must configure a unique relationship with skin in order to succeed, something many jewellers neglect, this connection to flesh, heat and reflection, the mutability of pieces. • • Natalia was born in Buenos Aries, relocating to NYC when she was young before returning to Argentina in 2012. A background in fine fragrance creation and floristry led to the creation of Frassaï and now a trio of fine perfumes launching last year. These are graceful compositions with a sense of luxe architecture to them. Lush trembling #veranoporteño by Rodrigo Flores-Roux is sublime and there is creamy gourmand #blondine by Yann Vasnier who always imparts a flare of 80’s Polaroid to his compositions. • • My favourite is Tian Di, by Olivier Gillotin who made 10 Corso Como, Balenciaga’s Cristobal and Tom Ford’s Tobacco Vanille. Wow…!!...the dirty smoked peach tea rush at the star is glorious. If it were music I’d loop it endlessly. Underlying this peachiness is a mordancy of chrysanthemums; petals finger-crushed. • • One of my favourite parts of Tian Di is a whisper of vintage cigarettes dipped in peach liquor; this ghost-tobacco perhaps the flow of Tonkin musk through smoke. Whatever it is, before it leaves, it is heavenly. Then a sudden muting, a sense of dust and cracked sandalwood. Delicate peach tea gently brewed with Chinese spices and fumed with incense. Galbanum and orris add mulch and powder to a scent that reaches quietly from earth to heaven. Tian Di lasts for hours on the skin, soft and tremulous, but it is there, almost beyond reach and then you catch it, like a sudden unexpected memory. •"

@dirtyboysgetclean's Favorite Scented Candle

FRASSAI

img_6268.jpg

ADA Candle by FRASSAI (8.5 oz $60) This candle is so gorgeous; gardenia, jasmine, freesia, white violets, and dewy green leaves. It smells like a lush green floral garden of everything delicate in the world. I love that it does not smell synthetic at all. The founder is also a true joy, you can tell she puts a lot of passion into her brand and products.

Tian Di, just like the fruit of original sin

FRASSAI

Semiacid and sweet fruit of light and desire, brightened with ginger, revived by the greenness of the galbanum, embraced to the aromatic quality of the frankincense, Tian Di starts its sensory journey with earthy iris spread with carrot seeds and creamy woods that merge into the warm skin knitting together a cold blanket covering the ripeness of a succulent peach.
Tian Di, just like the fruit of original sin, opens a new world in front of my eyes talking to me in a language i was already fluent.
— Ana y El Perfume

The lovely Ana @anayelperfume shares her poetic impressions of Tian Di 🌸 #scentedjourney

 

Founded as a jewel house, in Buenos Aires by Natalia Outeda, frassaï extended its activity by adding a line of candles and, in 2017, three perfumes created in collaboration with perfumers Yann Vasnier, Rodrigo Flores Roux and Olivier Gillotin. 
After an intensive testing of their perfume line, which at the moment include Tian Di, Blondine and Verano Porteño, i must say that Tian Di is my very favorite.
"In a garden hidden by clouds, on the mythical Mount Kunlun, Xiwangmu’s peach tree is a cosmic ladder that connects heaven and earth. Once every 3000 years the peaches ripen, and a lavish banquet is held. Offered to deities and royalty alike, it is said that the mere scent of this divine fruit grants immortality. With simple elegance and subdued beauty, Tian Di invites this mystical communion with a ritual in fragrance. Earthy incense, rich green flowers, peach elixir and calming woods culminate to open the mind, purify the body and awaken the spirit."

FRASSAI He Says, She Says Review by Persefume

BLONDINE She – flowers of spring bloom in this perfume, unexpectedly lavish and oriental. There’s definitely a pear present here, but above all – the most unusual collaboration between white flowers and cocoa, only possible in dreams, or a myth, as they would never grow together in reality. Wonderful and multi-faceted perfume, with ever-changing face.

TIAN DI She – Wonderfun (:D), earthy iris in the opening – carrot and hibiscus seeds anyone? Fresh ginger and galbanum add a vibrant green feel to it, beautifully prolonged by citrusy aspects of olibanum. The peach is so abstract here at first that I find it almost unrecognizable, as if she were wearing a mask – but then in incorporates, gains weight and buttery, celestial texture. Festive and meditative at once, this perfume is my favourite of the three.

VERANO PORTEÑO He – So green! It combines classic green, crispy citrus and woody elements with dash of subtle flowers and aromatic spices. Result is nostalgic, yet somehow full of energy and joy of life – I imagine it really evokes its brief story.

The Scented Gent samples Verano Porteño

FRASSAI

@thescentedgent: Today I'm sampling Verano Porteno by @frassai With dominant notes of citron, calabrian bergamot, jasmine, clementine and magnolia. I was kindly sent the new line of fragrances from Frassai some time ago, for which I apologise for taking my time with a sample post. So here's to a new chapter of exploring fragrances worn by the women in my life. Of course fragrances have no gender, it all comes down to wearing what you enjoy. Verano Porteno opens with the refreshing notes of citron, bergamot and tangerine. Its sweet and effervescent, which a touch of tartness from the citron to keep it grounded. Close behind the citruses, and the beautiful white florals of jasmine and magnolia, smooth, inviting and enveloping. It really does evoke a summers day in my mind, as the warm winds blow in a beautiful floral aroma. Vetiver adds a touch of green sharpness, that works well with the tartness of the citron. Cardamom sits deeply within the blend, but offers a hint of sweet spice, a note that is always welcome in my book. Finally ambrette seeds round off the scent with a musk like note. In terms of performance I got projection of 2-3 hours and longevity of 8+ hours, it certainly performed well on both mine and my girlfriends skin. Of the three fragrances in the line from Frassai, I selected Verano Porteno to discuss first as it could certainly be a unisex fragrance. Verano Porteno is truly a beautiful scent, and provides a reminder of summer whatever the weather. I'd certainly love my girlfriend to wear this, but I think she's going to have to share.
