This year for Christmas I think I put together a pretty thorough short list of all the critical items I’ve wanted to get for a while. I put my usual items on there but one item in particular is a bottle of perfume. My nose is so sensitive and I’m such a sucker for a sweet smelling scent that I really want to get back to building my collection of alluring scents. Coco Chanel said it best when she said that perfume is a woman’s most important accessory and I think its totally true. I
When I think back on my most fondest memories two things always stand out for me, taste number one, because as you know I’m a super foodie, and smell. And when it comes to food, if it doesn’t smell good take it back! So naturally I was delighted when a representative at Krigler New York City offered me the opportunity to get a whiff of their latest line of up scents. They sent me two vials of perfume; #10 Subtle Orchid and #14 Lieber Gustav.
Krigler is a handcrafted perfumery that was established in 1904, since then they’e reopened in the Plaza Hotel in New York City, where they cater to celebrities and clients through custom consultations. You can actually create a custom scent thats all your own or create a fragrant candle using fine ingredients collected from around the world.
I tried on both scent I received but only fell for one. Subtle Orchid smells light and sweet, very womanly. I loved it. Wore it to school a few times and didn’t feel at all like I was overly sweet. Lieber Gustav I feel like is probably better suited for a man. The name seems to come across that way, and so does the smell. It’s quite strong a tiny drop goes a long way. Unfortunately the Leather notes, Black tea and Lavender from this one left me feeling nauseous and prompted me to wash it off stat. Like I said my nose it really sensitive so that might not be the effect it has on everyone, but I know it’s definitely not for me. A bottle of either scent in a 1.7 oz bottle cost about $175, they aren’t cheap, but these are some very potent scent, the little vials I received will probably take my through till New Years.
Ever think of making a custom scent? If you could choose a smell or existing perfume to embody your essence what would it be?
