`If I had to give a picture of the American life, I would compare it with the situation at the resort. The entire activity, even the sentiment of the people, acquires an American character. It was King Fr. W`s birthday on August 3 while we stayed there at that time. It was a festival for 8 days, celebrated by water rides, illuminations, fireworks, etc. I sometimes still think about this grand affair.` -Memoir of Emma Blocki (1872)
Blocki Perfumes gracefully blend a timeless classic structure, exceptional naturals, and vibrant modern notes: This Grand Affair is a festive oriental illuminated by a modern citrus twist.
Grapefruit and neroli are bright sparks on the horizon, at the dawn of This Grand Affair. Still, neither of these citric characters dominate our initial impression of this fragrance, as they are couched in the rich, woodsy dulcet tones of davana.
Bulgarian lavender heightens our sense of this scent as a multi-layered, aromatic floral, and is a cool predecessor to Rose D’Orient. This rose is rich, yet remarkably buoyant in flavor, as fruity as it is indulgent.
Petitgrain refreshes after the lush texture of rose, while vanilla integrates the sharp and soft aspects of this fragrance into one cohesive body. Musk affords This Grand Affair an invisible heft that ensures it lands on skin with panache. Tonka bean and patchouli add a new dimension in the base, that’s sparkling, slightly smoky and tangy.
This Grand Affair is an invigorating, romantic, vivacious fragrance that promises to make the banal beautiful.
Packaged in a classic glass bottle topped with a gorgeous etched cap, and presented in an elegant box featuring the quote from Emma Blocki that inspired the fragrance.
