IF BY R.K.
It was by crossing India from north to south during a charity race that David Frossard, artistic director of the the House Frapin, found the inspiration for this new fragrance. IF, pays tribute to India with its precious wood, sandalwood from Mysore and the native poet of Bombay, Rudyard Kipling and his famous poem “If”.
I was lucky enough to travel from the north to the south of India during a charity race this year and on passing through Mysore, the verses of “If” came to me. It was my grandfather, a great traveller if ever there was one, who introduced me to this poem when I was a child. This lesson that needs to be repeated every day in order to become what we are”: David Frossard, artistic director of Parfums Frapin.
