Part of the Emma Collection. A stunning, classically structured oriental with a modern grapefruit top note, This Grand Affair pays homage to the grand perfumes of bygone times. We find it shares traits with Chanel No. 5 and Shalimar, for reference, and might even be their love-child. Tangy head notes sit atop rich vanilla and sultry animalic musk. If you find yourself saying, “What ever happened to perfume?” this one’s for you. Gorgeous for a special occasion, but be forewarned--wear only if you want to smell absolutely devastating!
