It has been said that sometimes the best accessory is the perfect perfume. I will go a step further and say you aren't fully dressed until you've applied the perfect fragrance.
And by perfect I mean the scent that is uplifting, in that moment, to you and everyone that gets close to you. Close is the operative word here - it's far more alluring to be subtle with this accessory.
If you agree, chances are you will want more than one go-to scent in your fragrance wardrobe and it's a good idea to have a list of brands to sample on that next shopping spree.
This one caught my attention. Krigler, an old world Russian perfumer creating luxurious, limited-addition concoctions for both men and women since 1905, is making a comeback in the United States.
Worn by royalty and celebrities across the globe, including Coco Chanel, Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn and John F. Kennedy - their scents are classic and timeless.
While exclusively available state side in the Krigler boutique in the Plaza Hotel NYC, you can shop the entire collection online.
I plan to try Pleasure Gardenia - described as voluptuous, elegant and feminine and Chateau Krigler - a forever fragrance with notes of Lily of the Valley, white musk, and rose and a signature scent for Grace Kelly.
Even though they are available in sample size for a mere $7.50, something tells me I'm signing myself up for another very expensive favorite thing.
But hey, as boldly stated by Coco herself - "A woman who doesn't wear perfume has no future."
