Fine fragrances impart a complexity and luxurious richness that’s unmatched by lesser creations, and Krigler is to fragrance as Van Gogh is to art and Valentino is to fashion. The latest Krigler offering is Ultra Chateau Krigler 212, which is a lovely rendition of their popular No. 12 fragrance, worn by Grace Kelly. Crafted to be more youthful and slightly woodsier than the beloved original, Krigler 212 offers fresh top notes of lily-of-the-valley, iris, magnolia, violet and rose, a floral heart infused with musk, cassis, Champaca flowers, jasmine, ylang-ylang, and lilac. The typically rich base is comprised of amber, cedar, African orchid, and Damascus plum.
The Krigler collection has been captivating the rich, famous, royal and privileged for more than a century now, and their perfumes are hand-blended in Monaco and at New York City’s Plaza Hotel. Ardent devotees have included Princess Grace Kelly, actress Audrey Hepburn, and fashion icon Coco Chanel (Audrey Hepburn’s was No. 19, English Promenade); Krigler can also customize their quality blends.
If you simply can’t get enough of Krigler’s extraordinary fragrances (which would be understandable), you can also revel in their line of scented candles, delicate soaps, skin care (Dazzling Oil, Sublime Star and Madison Secret moisturizer) and bath & body products, such as Aloa Divine, Rich Micro Scrub and True Paradise lotion.
Find Krigler fragrances and products at The Plaza Hotel’s Concourse Level at One West 58th Street, 212-371-1122, or browse-and-order online on http://www.krigler.com.
