Review: Krigler Topaze Imperiale Fragrance
TOPAZE IMPERIALE ²13 fragrance: A powerful, charismatic scent inspired by a unique, exotic stone
Imagine yourself deep in the heart of Brazil, searching for the exquisite jewel Topaze Imperiale. The allure of the stone is that is it has the ability to revitalize the body and soul. The fragrance has the base notes of amber, galbanum, rose and mandarin, so seductive. The top notes of vetiver, musk and sandalwood intrigue the mind and the heart is addicted to the notes of vanilla, neroli and oud. Like the Topaz Imperiale stone, the fragrance promotes renewal and motivation. It is a symbol of vitality. The luxe scent invigorates the wearer both physically and mentally. This fragrance is powerful, charismatic and inspired.
When I sampled this fragrance it brought me back to another time. It reminded me of one of the fragrances my grandmother used to wear. A rich, deep one. Not for the faint of heart. This is the kind of fragrance that a strong woman wears. The notes of amber, musk and sandalwood are rich. Only the rose softens it. I normally get migraines from fragrances like this. However, this is akin to a Haute Parfum. It is made with the finest oils. It is indeed a powerful fragrance. This would make a great Valentine’s Day gift for the fragrance lover on your list!
