1889 ...
 time
 stood 
still 
in 
the 
temporary 
glass palaces
 of
 the
 Paris
 World
 Fair.
 The
 pavilions
 showing
 their
 iron
 lacework
 undersides,
 celebrated
 booming
 industry
 and
 Art
 nouveau.

It
 is
 against
 this
 thrilling
 backdrop
 that
 Frapin
 cognacs
 were
 rewarded
 for
 their
 excellence.
 Pierre
 Frapin
 received
 the
 gold
 medal
 from
 Gustave
 Eiffel
 himself.
 History
 does
 not 
tell 
us 
what 
was
 said 
between 
the
 man
 of
 the
 soil
 and
 the
 man
 of
 iron.
 The
 estate
 in
 Charente,
 however,
 bears
 witness
 to
 what
 was
 done.
 Mr
 Eiffel
 used
 his
 genius 
to
 create 
indestructible 
store
 houses 
for
 Mr
 Frapin.

Created
 with
 the
 vitality
 of
 Art
 nouveau,
 Paradis
 Perdu
 is
 an
 ode
 to
 the
 vineyards
 around
 the
 property.
 The
 perfumer,
 Amélie
 Bourgeois,
 drew
 her
 inspiration
 from
 the
 expanses
 of
 land,
 conjuring
 effervescence
 with
 curved
 lines,
 somewhere
 between
 gushing
 and
 encircling.

A
 hint
 of
 sap
 is
 first
 to
 be
 noted,
 the
 new
 Eve
 in
 this
 Garden
 of
 Eden.
 It
 rises
 from
 the
 soil
 in
 a
 rustling
 of
 vetiver
 roots.
 Intertwined
 up
 the
 vine
 shoots,
 a
 sign
 of
 lasting
 freshness,
 the
 sap
 changes
 from
 crisp
 green
 to
 dark
green.

Basil,
 with
 its
 insolence
 as
 a
 new
 shoot,
 muddles
 the
 severe 
green
 of 
the
 large 
vine
leaves.
 The 
bitter 
green
 of
 spinach
 leaves
 heralds
 the
 quirky
 elegance
 of
 this
 organic 
harmony.

As
 in
 Art
 nouveau,
 Amélie
 has
 distilled
 nature
 and
 guided
 it
 to
 abstraction.
 In
 line
 with
 this
 joyful
 art,
 she
 has
 skilfully
 played
 with
 exotic
 green
 notes,
 changing
 Paradisamide
 into
 Paradise.
