I LOVED the 2002 version, but this 2010 re-issue is a bit of a let down. Smells quite watered down, and the performance is lacking. If anyone knows of something that smells similar to the original version, please share!

A forgettable scent. If it smelled on me like some of the other reviewers describe, I would surely be happy. But on me there is not that much fruit, certainly nothing delicious. It is unobjectionable but not exciting. If you want an exciting scent that is spicy, my go-to is 1899 by Histoires... or try Shihan. This doesn't hold a candle to either of those...

1270 reminds me of Christmas markets and holiday spirits: boozy mocha, heavily candied fruits much like on a traditional brandied fruitcake, so syrupy! Worn leather gloves holding spiced glugwine. Honey coated hazelnuts. So very gourmand, but a grown-up gourmand, so much like a festive party. 1270 does not do well in hot sweaty weather though, best for when fall/winter and brisk air hits.

A fruity lover's dream fragrance. A sophisticated, complex dessert-y gourmand, featuring juicy stone fruits mingled with sophisticated white cake-y qualities, vanilla and cocoa. Luscious and nigh-edible, blended with a smooth, transparent musk. Almost like an ultra-sophisticated, glam take on Mugler ANGEL or Molinard NIRMALA. An airy suggestion of perfuminess makes it lean femme; in far drydown leaves a soft delicately sweet pillow of gourmandise tinted with honeysuckle and refined leather. Delectable, classy and memorable. A bride's wedding party delight.

This is a wonderful scent that makes me feel relaxed and happy at the end of a long day. In fact, I often wear this scent to bed. It is the rich sweet aroma of cognac and there is nothing harsh or edgy about it. I have a full bottle and will definitely purchase another when this one is gone. Lovely.

Frapin 1270 is my go-to fragrance for boozy/spicy accords. This gorgeous beast thrills me and when I'm wearing it, I can be seen sniffing my wrist all day. Stunning, rich fragrance.

Love love love 1270! Extremely delicious.. warm and satisfying.. absolutely divine. A masterpiece. The bottle is gorgeous, too!

I fully expected this to be my favorite fragrance given the ingredients and some of the reviews.The drydown left me with a hefty dose of cocoa and coffee, which isn't a bad thing...if I'm going on a coffee date or something, I guess. Thing is, I don't have too many of those.

One of my favorite perfumes of all time. Very warm, slightly sweet, dark, and rich. Opulent, even. It smells expensive. It's unisex, but the sweetness would make it unusual and therefore incredibly intriguing and sexy on a man. There's something to it that reminds me of church -- maybe the vanilla and the woods combine to form something that's making me think of incense, although it's not smoky or cloying like incense -- and I can imagine some powerful Cardinal in Renaissance Italy wearing this and inspiring impure thoughts in any woman he walks by.

I loved his scent! I had boght like 3 bottles of the "original" scent (the round flask like bottle) glorious scent! Longevity forever! To die for! Anyways! A few months back decided to buy a new bottle (the universal style bottle Frapin has now with the wooden top) - well upon opening it and spraying some on, I was majorly disappointed, somehow this scent has become "watered down" somehow really messed up! This was a special classic scent and now it has nothing to it, if you had smelled the original one - trust me yo would be fighting mad to smell this one! Truly very disappointing! Bring back the oringial formula otherise I woud not consider ever getting this again!

Well, I have the older version in the older bottle and haven't used it in a long while. I decided to wear it to bed last night and when I woke up this morning I could still smell it! I still love it! It smells slightly woody and spicy and slightly sweet, slightly boozy. Still a lovely scent for fall.

Pinapple, all over! I can barely stand it, to me this smells like pineapplepie drenched in honey, it's so sweet i cannot imagine how this one ended up labelled as unisex. To me, this just smells like a ten year olds first perfume. I should have guessed by the reviews that this scent is not for everyone. If you like candy-shop-perfumes this might do it for you, but then there is plenty more out there, -with better price and staying power as well.

Heartbreakingly beautiful scent, and yet so heartbreakingly fleeting. The scent just does not last long on me. Recommend trying first before buying. i would buy this immediately if it had more staying power on me.

Every time I wear this I get a question and a compliment. I'm not that enamoured though - it's nice and fresh but a bit too manly for me. I think I prefer the more floral fragrances

I can't decide about this one. I bought a few samples and I've been trying it but one minute i LOVE it then the next i'm like hmmm, maybe not for me. It's definitely like a chameleon.

A sister (or brother) to Micallef's Note Vanille. A little more airy, a little more masculine, a little more suitable to a formal occasion (I love Note Vanille but cannot imagine wearing it to any other place but a night club). A smoky, boozy, soapy vanilla scent. Complex and interesting. Too masculine for my taste, though.

I like this, but don't love it. It's a very pretty scent. It's very sweet (not cloying, but sweet), like a very vanilla-y butterscotch. Would make a great winter scent. Not complex enough for me; wish it had a little bit of spice or something to make it a tad more interesting.

This is the ONLY fragrance I own (in a collection of too many to count) where every time I wear it, without fail, at least one person stops me to ask WHAT am I wearing and where can they get some. A stunning fragrance. Warm, comforting, sensual and refined.

Oh my, what a beautiful amazing scent! It smells like fresh ripe pineapple to me with a hint of tobacco and caramelled coffee, just gorgeous! Very close to the skin and naturally smelling to me, nothing like the modern "molecule"scents to me.. just love

Hmmm, this was a nice scent but it was just that, "nice." I was not impressed wearing it as I was reading the composition. The sillage is soft, it wears close to the skin. Frapin 1270 smells more of butterscotch or butter-rum candy than it does anything masculine or urbane; it isn't really cloying [even though I do tend to like some cloying scents] it is just very "candied." All through the scent's development and longevity, it is sweet all the way. I don't like boozy smelling colognes and I thought this one would be more club-room masculine than boozy, and this one is DEFINITELY NOT boozy. To my nose, it fits into the "Gourmand" category. It's nice if you want a sweet scent, but if you are looking for masculine, urbane, classy, stick to their liquors.
