About Grand Soir

The company say:

Dress in your finest attire and polish your look. Wander in a never-ending night and enjoy the daring radiance of a magnificent Parisian evening, over and over again. Bridges and monuments shine like a thousand stars, standing majestic in a twilit sky carried away by the soft vanilla warmth of benzoin from Siam and a tonka bean from Brazil that has been jostled by the deep darkness of cistus labdanum from Spain.

Grand Soir fragrance notes

Reviews of Grand Soir

WOW.....This stuff is just amazing!!

Lots of amber & vanilla with a few spices thrown in for good measure. Reminds me of a cross between Musc Ravageur & the original CK Obsession for men. Powerful with great sillage. Smells expensive.

Sweet amber. Loud enough to attract amber lovers, well made enough to attract others who like a sweet gourmand accord. I'm not a lover of amber frags, but I'm working my way through the MFK line and want to try them all, so I wore this one today. There is an underlying woodiness that smells of Gaiac to me even though it's not in the listed notes. I don't mind this fragrance, as it's such a well made one, its just not my personal style.

Grand Soir during development on my skin reminded me on three others fragrances. Top and middle notes are like a mixture of two Frederic Malle fragrances; Monsieur. and Musc Ravageur. This is kind of strange, because patchouli is not part of ingredients list. Base brings back memories on Coromandel by Chanel.

So much association with other fragrances is a clear sign that this is not something revolutionary; however, this is perfectly executed perfume.

I'm not much fan of gourmands, but this one is really god. Great for winter days.

Sweet, sugary amber with chocolate and coffee. A heavier fragrance that is great in cold weather. Has that baked cookie vibe.

Projects like crazy and lasts all day.

This is a rebellious Amber fragrance, with a ham-fisted approach to notes and elements that should be handled with care - Tonka, benzoin, synthetic woods, sweetness. They are all there with abundance. The sweetness in this case has a particularly piercing nature, like that of stewed fruits.

Those wanting a simple, rich, syrupy amber must accept that MFK will never produce one that doesn't have a challenging twist. Like APLS used animalics for that twist, Grand Soir uses Tonka and benzoin in high doses and piercing sweetness to make the wearer jump hurdles to smell the amber.

Performance is excellent.

A basic, soft, warm, sweet fragrance; likable, wearable. I'm grateful they kept it simple. It could be worth paying a premium to have a fragrance not trying too hard. The listed notes sound right, mostly benzoin, a nice, simple clean one, typically sweet.

The contrast in my experience with this compared to my typical impressions of this house, niche in general, and ClaireV's experience are striking - I really liked this, as in enough to consider buying a bottle and wearing it often, a rarity for me for any non-vintage fragrance.

The rough synth edge Claire mentions affects me in most modern fragrances, yet I didn't get it from Grand Soir. I got a surprisingly light dose of synthetic woods, a playful splash of the stuff that was undetectable without really sniffing it out on skin, and that was overwhelmed by an unrelenting agreeableness and lightly sweet roundness in beige tones.
