IN THE KINGDOM OF THE ABSOLUTE P.Frapin & Cie introduces 1697. 1697, the year in which Louis XIV granted the Frapin family nobility. A coat of arms that embodies the sophistication of the Grand Siècle. The reign of the Sun King was marked by splendor. The monarch was passionate about beauty, women, love... Rapturous festivities, enchanting balls and evening receptions, voluptuous colors and scents. Moments to succumb to, memories of desires, delights. P. Frapin & Cie called on Bertrand Duchaufour to create a fragrance which conveys this touching sensuality.

Head: Cabreuva, Davana, Jamaican Rum, Cistus, Pink Peppercorn.
Heart: Jasmine Sambac, Hawthorn, Ylang Ylang, Clove, Ceylon Cinnamon, Dried Fruits, Rose Essence.
Base: Ambergris, Tonka Bean, Patchouli, Cedarwood, Cistus, White Musks, Vanilla.

The famous perfumer has come up with spiced sweet notes for a sophisticated, rich fragrance appealing to both masculine and feminine virtues, in which the world of glamour rules supreme.

The fragrance is made up of the most precious ingredients. Absolutes of rum, cassie flower, Tonka bean, cistus, and rose … The first wafts of rum are heightened by the davana oil, then fill out and become more pronounced, perfectly conveying the leather notes of cognac.

Spiced floral middle notes with hawthorn and jasmine melting into cinnamon, dried fruits and rose.

The base notes linger, combining an amber-based theme with musk and wood essences softened by vanilla. A smooth, almost bewitching scent.


Luxury, rarity, precious refinement. A victory for the senses, swirls of amber fragrances in a shimmering and colourful liquid.

A feast for the eyes and the nose. A modern bottle, transparent with amber hues, a square design with sleek lines. A grand glass stopper adorned with a silver ring. Iridescent brown packaging, hot stamped with red seal, the brand’s signature.

1697 Absolu de parfum. An elixir of sensuality.

Frapin is a Cognac producer based in the town of Segonzac, in the heart of the Grande Champagne region of France. The Frapin family has been established in the South West of France since 1270, initially as a family of wine-growers. They then became distillers and have continued in this tradition for 20 generations. The Grande Champagne region was where the family eventually settled, establishing their headquarters in the Fontpinot Castle at Segonzac. Today the Frapin estate covers 300 hectares entirely in Grande Champagne, officially listed as Premier Grand Cru du Cognac, of which 200 hectares are planted with the 'Ugni Blanc' grape variety.
