Inspired by a morning in Grand Champagne, waking up in the castle owned by the Frapin family. As the day wakes, and you step outside, the bright morning sun is warming the cold stone of the castle walls, the scent from the rolling hills and the vineyard wafts gently through the quiet morning air. The tangy flavour of the Grapes and the freshness of Neroli vibrate precious resins, with sweet and woody notes. A scent of sun and an ode to the earth. Beyond evoking Grande Champagne, Earth Sarmiento recalls its resins whose use is rooted in the distant past, Frapin have already planted vines in the morning of the world…

HOW IT WEARS
Terre de Sarment is a wonderful resinous, earthy fragrance with such elegance. The freshness of the ripe Grapes and Citrus fruits in the opening dries down to a warming and delicious Benzoin and Myrrh base. Just like the hot sun warms up throughout the day, so to does this fragrance on the skin. As an Eau de Parfum, Terre de Sarment lasts between 6 – 8 hours on the skin leaving a soft and resinous trail.
We love this celebration of the earth and how evocative it is – another time and another place, the smell of nature, wide open views, rolling hills, the hot summer sun beating down on all of the ripe vines about to be picked. The scent of the morning, when there are no distractions, no noise, just stillness and nature.
