Exquisite Affair is a 2024 release from luxury niche perfumer Francesca Bianchi and designe house Hedonik. Bianchi treats perfumery as "an intellectual process," inspired by "the power of what it means to be human, by the wish to connect with people’s inner life, the desire to spark an emotion in them and make them feel at home in their own bodies, offer solace, or just a quick fix for a bad day." 

Hedonik, an Italian brand, seeks to blend Italian artisan tradition and craftsmanship with "objects of pleasure" that one can wear "to enter your office or your bedroom. Enjoy them under a tuxedo, over a blouse, or on bare skin." Exquisite Affair, a Leather fragrance to match Hedonik's leather creations, has a scent profile of fruity, caramel, soft spicy, sweet, cinnamon, leather, aromatic, green, citrus, and floral accored

From Hedonik & perfumer Francesca Bianchi:


Exquisite Affair: Sweet and sexy, the liaison between Peach and Leather is unexpected, therefore surprising. A secret relationship between two contrasting yet complementary characters: innocence and seduction. This liaison is symbolically portrayed through the harmony of Peach and Leather. The "exquisite" juxtaposition creates a non-trivial, playful, and unconventional fragrance.

The Innocence: I worked on a sweet-fruity vertical accord centered around peach and the values associated with it: youth, carefreeness, the age of innocence. It opens with the freshness of bergamot and green mandarin, reminiscent of freshly picked fruit; the peach is then enriched by osmanthus and blackcurrant, and amplified by a note of caramel - cotton candy in the base.

The Seduction: Leather, in its myriad variations, is one of my favorite accords for its deep and intense character that resonates with carnality and sensuality. In this composition, I worked on a whispered yet well-defined leather, animalic and dirty, which irresistibly blends with the sweetness of caramel. It is the intense and sweet scent of a horse saddle. Sandalwood is added to amplify the creaminess of the lactonic heart notes, and the seduction of fractionated, velvety, and intense Patchouli
