Everything old can be made new again. Such is the case with an amazingly delicious fragrance call Champfleury 132 from the house of Krigler. Champfleury 132 was first launched by Albert Krigler in 1913. Vintage perfumes are exciting for those who love the history and drama of these fragrances, and Millennials find them ironic and collectible. Fortunately for everyone, Ben Krigler has revived the 1913 Champfleury 132 in the Krigler Eau De Parfum line. “It is a truly timeless fragrance that never loses its charm, so I’m thrilled to bring it back and recreate a piece of my great-great-grandfather’s legacy,” says Ben Krigler.
The fresh, energetic notes of Champfleury 123 Eau de Parfum are supposed to be an homage to Champagne, a place that creator, Albert Krigler, fell in love with throughout his travel in Europe. The round, gold hard-sided container of the outer packaging is certainly celebratory, and elegant and reminds us that Krigler produces luxury fragrances. The traditional Krigler spay bottle is clear with a faceted chunk of clear Lucite covering the gold spray diffuser and the little “bowtie of black, silk ribbon (with Krigler New York City sparkling in gold metallic on the ribbon) at the neck.
While the scent didn’t remind me of champagne, I think it’s the idea of what Albert Krigler must have envisioned when the thought of the region and wanted to craft a fragrance around his memories of it. there are citrus notes . It’s the kind of fragrance that will translate differently on different skin types. At first the fragrance appears energetic and a bit fruity, with Corsican Clementine, Lemon and Mint, but in a short period of time the heart and base notes work to make a softer, slightly woodsy and powdery finish that will stand up to cooler weather and last a long time on your skin. The heart is Cedar and Provencal Lavender and the key base notes are white Musk, Vetiver and Patchouli. The scent’s last impression is of the ceder and patchouli, and it appears quite unisex…once the drydown happens, it’s sensual and signfiicant. Men will want to share it!
I see Champfleury 124 by Krigler as a fragrance that transcends generations of women 30 and above and this audience will adore it for day or evening. When it comes to those younger women who want to try it but are used to celebrity fragrances/light fruity florals, it’s going to appeal mostly to this group if they are already confident in their style and taste, and for special occasions . Anyone can carry it off, but when you wear it you’ll really make a statement.
