FRASSAI

MARK BEHNKE AT COLOGNOISSEUR REVIEWS THE NEW FRASSAÏ FRAGRANCES: A FUEGO LENTO AND TEISENDDU.

“These two latest releases along with the three from earlier in this year makes Frassai the best debut perfume line of 2018.”

Frassai perfume review by Colognoisseur - Natalia Outeda

For Teisenddu … [NATALIA} turned to the perfumer who did some of her candlesRoxanne Kirkpatrick.

… Outeda knows when she has found a precious gem; Ms. Kirkpatrick seems to be the perfume version of that.

A FUEGO LENTO

TEISENDDU

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.

#andthewinner is TEISENDDU

FRASSAI

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 🙌🏽

Cerrá los ojos. Encendé Marlene en tu mente. Scents Hunter Review

FRASSAI

scents__hunter #andthewinneris #marlene #velasfrassai #frassai 

Crema de vainilla. Cuero. Narciso. Whisky añejado. Roble. Tabaco

Cerrá los ojos. Encendé Marlene en tu mente. 
El espacio entre los pensamientos, esa marea que moja la costa de las ideas. 
Lo ves? 
Me entendés? 
Libre. 
Es libre y danza sin ataduras. 
Hace lo que quiere. Ama y “desama”. Marlene es pasión, la pasión del cuero, la contradicción del tabaco, el desenfado del whisky y la libertad inocente de la crema de vainilla. Alma de niña, cuerpo de gigante. 
Divina. Muy!
Llena de perfume sensual mi hogar. Entre la inocencia y la nocturna sabiduría de la vida. 
Me encanta. 
Gracias @frassai

New Review from The Scented Hound

FRASSAI

Blondine by Frassaï

SMELLS LIKE: Hammock dreaming in a sun kissed jungle.
— THE SCENTED HOUND
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.

FRASSAÏ receives a solid 4 stars and "stellar" review in the new Perfumes the Guide 2018 by Luca Turin and Tania Sanchez

FRASSAI

The Perfumes Guide 2018 by Luca Turin and Tania Sanchez is now avialable on Amazon.com. We are truly honored at FRASSAÏ to have our three fragrances: Blondine, Tian Di and Verano Porteño not only included in this exhaustive guide, with wonderful reviews on all three scents. We are also humbled to read the graceful words about the art direction of our founder, Natalia Outeda, and proud to recive the rarely given 4-star rating on all perfumes ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.

This perfume guide has been released ten years after Luca & Tania released the A-Z Guide. It is the result of an exhaustive and passionate (not always fabulous) review of 1,200 fragrances that were launched in the global fragrance market during the last decade, 2008-2018. As a novelty, it incorporates a much needed coverage of the niche perfume market, that includes us! Although we didn't get around to tally up the star ratings, the authors claim that half of the 1,200 fragrances reviewed, only received one to two star ratings - only 20 out of these got 5.

We are immensely proud to have a solid 4-stars on all three of our scents. Below is a snippet of what Luca Turin thinks about FRASSAÏ and the eaux de parfum in the collection. However, if you are interested in perfume, we highly recommend that you get your copy, sit down in a comfy chair with beverage (and perfume) of choice in hand, and take a leisurely afternoon to enjoy this wonderfully written book. Only available on Kindle for now (although it's readable on your browser and iPhone) - paperback and hardcover coming soon. 


"(Natalia) must have been a paragon evaluator and art director, because every one of her fragrances is evidence of someone with a goal, a steady hand at the helm, and a deep understanding of the strengths of her chosen perfumers. For a start, the perfumes smell good all the way, from a sumptuous, heady top note via a solid, beautifully worked out, Lauder-level heart (when will the snobs finally realize Lauder under art director Karyn Khoury was the American Guerlain?), to that rarest of things these days, a really good drydown... all are of stellar quality."

BLONDINE**** "...slowly develops into one of the most interesting orientals in a long time, smooth, rich, devoid of clichés" 

TIAN DI**** "what is remarkable about Tian Di, and strongly suggests an ingenious assemblage, is the solidity of the accord (easily twenty-four hours on strip) not budging away from a glorious, slanting-sunlight glow. Great stuff.


VERANO PORTEÑO**** "It turns out a smile can be smelled. I cannot find another way to describe the floral start... this one has a twist that goes beyond those stately creatures (Beyond Paradise, Oscar) ... which gives the top note a flirty lift that first promises to turn heads, then to break hearts. 

Enveloped by the sweet smell of honeyed mimosa

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?)

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. •"

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.
