FRASSAI

A FUEGO LENTO: Best of Scent 2018 by Carlos Powell / Brooklyn Fragrance Lover.

A Fuego Lento
150.00

A cabaña nestled in the shadow of the Andes Mountains glows beneath a cascade of mysterious stars. Inside, a fire burns as two souls surrender themselves to the night.

Orange flower and black currant entice the senses, while a pulse of nocturnal jasmine intoxicates and envelopes, culminating in a sensuous bed of balsam and suede. A Fuego Lento imparts an addictive, heady, sweet and sultry trail…

Notes: Blackcurrant buds,  Orange Flower, Jasmine Sambac, Civet, Suede, Flouve Odorante, Tolu Balsam

Sultry Floral

CREATED WITH RODRIGO FLORES-ROUX

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.

A Reflection on Christmas, Light and Incense

FRASSAI

On smoke, light and perfume | De humo, luz y perfume

On smoke, light and perfume

In ancient times, incense was of capital importance during religious rituals. The smoke produced by the combustion of fragrant substances -mainly resins- was supposed to elevate prayers away from the people and reach the corresponding deities in high heavens. The origin of perfume is intrinsically related to smoke, even by ethymology: the word “perfume” derives from the Latin “per-fumum” which means, precisely, “through smoke”. Frankincense, copal, guaiac and myrrh are still used all over the world, their smoke considered to have purifying properties.

Candles, instead, are not about smoke but about light. In fact, they shouldn't produce smoke or soot. Although candles might also be used ritualistically they, somehow, convey less solemnity and austerity than incense. Maybe what we find fascinating is the warm glow of the flame, imparting its serenity to everyone around. This feeling is heightened in the case of scented candles, fragrance adding its powers to light. Perhaps there's something atavistic in the fire itself, like a minimalistic version of a bonfire. It is as common to make a wish when lighting a candle as it is to do so when blowing out the candles of a birthday cake.

You can learn more about candles and how to light them properly by visiting the FAQs and Precautions section on our webpage.

De humo, luz y perfume

En la antigüedad, el incienso era de capital importancia durante los rituales religiosos. El humo producido por la combustión de sustancias fragantes -principalmente resinas- tenía por tarea elevar a los cielos las plegarias lejos de las personas y llegar a las deidades correspondientes. El origen del perfume está intrínsecamente relacionado con el humo, incluso por etimología: la palabra “perfume” deriva del Latín “per-fumum” que quiere decir, precisamente, “a través del humo”. Olíbano, copal, guayacán y mirra son, aún hoy, usados en el mundo entero, ya que se considera que su humo tiene propiedades purificadoras.

Las velas, en cambio, poco tienen que ver con el humo sino con la luz. De hecho, no deberían emitir humo ni hollín. Aunque las velas se emplean también de manera ritual, en cierto modo comunican menos solemnidad y austeridad que el incienso. Quizás lo que encontramos fascinante sea el cálido resplandor de la vela, que imparte su serenidad en derredor. Esta sensación se ve realzada en el caso de las velas perfumadas, ya que la fragancia suma sus poderes a la luz. Tal vez haya algo atávico en el fuego mismo, como si se tratara de la versión minimalista de una hoguera. Es tan corriente pedir un deseo al encender una vela como hacerlo cuando se apagan las velas de una torta de cumpleaños.

Podés aprender más sobre velas y cómo encenderlas correctamente visitando las secciones de FAQs y Precauciones de nuestra webpage.

"Quedé feliz de conocerte a vos y experimentar la belleza de tus perfumes llenos de energía ying-yang en equilibrio. Están "bien parados", saben quiénes son, saben que hay belleza en la experiencia completa, con los sentidos a pleno y una adentro, "al reparo" y libre. Y también saben de cambios, de estaciones, de soles y lunas, y están cómodos con eso, (muy tao, muy río que fluye ahí también). Hay películas, piezas de música, cuadros, poemas que te "mueven" (en los dos sentidos de mover/conmover), ¿viste?, agregan sentido desde un lugar cero racional. Yo anhelo los momentos en los que se da eso, relámpago de intuición, que es puro bliss. Tus creaciones tienen eso, como todo arte que viene del alma. Feliz, feliz, feliz de tener conmigo este perfume y todo eso que me provoca olerlos en mi piel." Paula

TEISENDDU!

Earlier this month, during the U.S. elections, we set out to cast our own vote. The candidates were our five eaux de parfum: Blondine, Tian Di, Verano Porteño, Teisenddu and A Fuego Lento.

It was a tight race and for a moment we thought we’d have a tie, but slowly a clear winner emerged. We were delighted to see that Teisenddu was the most voted for fragrance: A journey on the Mimosa from Wales to Patagonia.

The runner up: Verano Porteño!

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.

Friday Morning Interview with Carlos Powell from Brooklyn Fragrance Lover

FRASSAI

Meeting of Noses - Buenos Aires meets New York

FRASSAI

Last week I met with Rodrigo Flores-Roux, the nose behind

A FUEGO LENTO & VERANO PORTEÑO

two distinct takes on jasmine composed by the Master of white flowers. Each one creates a singular mood; one is bright and solar, a morning blooming jasmine with magnolia, citrus, vetiver and patchouli. The other, a simmering night-blooming jasmine with suede and the coumarin hay scent of flouveodorante. Both contain FRASSAÏ’s signature ingredient: maté absolute, lifting and supporting the floralcy with grace. 

We had a wonderful #smellsession and are already planning our next perfume, so keep an eye and your nose out!👃🏼
