(Update: I grew to love, love this. I now have a full bottle and it’s one of my favorites from my whole collection. It took me months of wearing it though…)
Although Krigler is a very luxurious, and respectable house I’m afraid Lovely Patchouli 55 (Krigler 1955) is not exactly…what I expected. It’s very sweet, and there’s something almost abrasive about the way it plays with my chemistry. It’s also tart.
The notes mix together to form a particularly loud patchouli and then collectively punch one in the nose. I would not say it is pretty…or handsome. And, while the drydown improves it, it doesn’t alter it entirely.
Notes: bergamot, leather, amber and patchouli.
