Reviews of This Grand Affair

There is one review of This Grand Affair.
A nice one. This Grand Affair is a classically inspired floral leather perfume. It's got a lot of the dna of a classic cuir de russie, being built on an impossibly complex, Chanel-esque creamy base of ionone suede, sandalwood, musks, and sweet vanilla iris. The top is a bit of a coumarin bomb, papery and thick with tobacco, while lightly powdery violets and florals add depth. Meanwhile, there's also that animalic petrol note made famous by Knize Ten, fused together with a surprising mint note that adds some interesting sharp edges to a composition that's otherwise quite smooth.

So, realistically, I think This Grand Affair is best described as a halfway point between Knize Ten and Chanel's Cuir de Russie, though less floral than either and with that tobacco instead, likely to appeal to fans of Cuiron and the like. My only minor nitpick is that a higher concentration could have really upped the luxury factor, but I always appreciate a perfume that's clearly designed by and for serious perfume fans with a knowledge of the classics. A great (re)entry to the market from Blocki - thumbs up!
