2016 Holiday Gift Pick - Lovely Patchouli 55 Classic by Krigler

Lovely Patchouli 55 Classic by Krigler

Lovely Patchouli 55 Classic is one of the most expensive fragrances I've ever recommended on the blog, but I was so impressed by it, I had to include it in this year's Holiday Gift Guide for those who want to treat someone (or themselves!) to a unique luxury fragrance experience.

Lovely Patchouli 55 Classic Eau De Parfum by German fragrance house, Krigler, smells exactly like what it’s named after - lovely.   The fragrance launched in 1955, and it is still a top seller for Krigler.  The scent is rich, warm and spicy - yet completely soft, sexy and chic. While it has a large amount of the Patchouli note, it's created in such a a way that the scent brings to mind a sensual and sophisticated feel.  Lovely Patchouli 55 is perfect for every occasion, from the office to date night to a casual weekend out. 

I recently learned that none other than style Icon and former First Lady, Jacqueline Kennedy wore Lovely Patchouli 55, and after I experienced it, I understood why.

I personally love amber notes in my perfume, and it's very prevalent in Lovely Patchouli 55, along with bergamot, vanilla, red fruits, leather, and of course the titled patchouli.  The opening on my skin was spicy, but with a very smooth touch of vanilla.  The genius of the scent is how the bergamot is blended to work with the spicy/sweet notes so that the entire fragrance never becomes too sweet or heavy.  

Lovely Patchouli 55 Classic had incredible staying power on me.  After applying in the early morning it stayed softly on my skin over 8+ hours with no touch up.  By the afternoon I just could not help smelling my inner wrists - it's that beautiful.  The scent seemed to warm up a bit more by afternoon and then just continue for hours with a perfect blend of spiciness and freshness until the creamy, drier, spicy dry down at night I loved as well.  Lovely Patchouli 55 Classic is a perfect Fall/Winter scent, and would even work in summer on dry, breezy days or spritzed into a light body lotion.


As if the scent itself was not enough to win me over as a convert, the packaging is beautiful and old-world elegance at its best. 

Lovely Patchouli 55 Classic comes housed in a hard sized round golden tube. For the perfume, the round, thick, see-through glass bottle features a golden top and a shiny black and gold label along with the Krigler imprint on the black satin ribbon around it's neck.  

Lovely Patchouli 55 Classic will truly be appreciated by the fragrance lover in your life.
