Welcome!

Please understand that this website is not affiliated with any of the perfume companies written about here in any way, it is only a reference page and repository of information for collectors and those who have enjoyed the classic fragrances of days gone by.

One of the goals of this website is to show the present owners of the various perfumes and cologne brands that are featured here how much we miss the discontinued classics and hopefully, if they see that there is enough interest and demand, they will bring back these fragrances!

Please leave a comment below (for example: of why you liked the fragrance, describe the scent, time period or age you wore it, who gave it to you or what occasion, any specific memories, what it reminded you of, maybe a relative wore it, or you remembered seeing the bottle on their vanity table), who knows, perhaps someone from the company brand might see it.

K de Krizia c1981

K de Krizia by Krizia: launched in 1981, created by Maurice Roucel.



K de Krizia was available in the following forms:
  • Parfum
  • Eau de Parfum
  • Eau de Toilette
  • Perfumed Body Creme

Fragrance Composition:


So what does it smell like? It is classified as an aldehydic floral fragrance for women. I think it smells a lot like vintage Opium by Yves Saint Laurent, very nice, deep and rich oriental. It starts off with an aldehydic top, followed by an elegant floral heart, resting on a sensual, powdery base.
  • Top notes: aldehydes, leafy green note, spices, angelica, peach, hyacinth, neroli and bergamot
  • Middle notes: tuberose, gardenia, ylang ylang, carnation, orange blossom, orchid, orris root, jasmine, lily-of-the-valley, rose and narcissus
  • Base notes: benzoin, cedar, leather, sandalwood, amber, musk, civet, oakmoss, vanilla, vetiver and styrax

The New York Times Magazine, 1981:
"Among those recently introduced, for example, and their approximate price per ounce, are Missoni, $150; K de Krizia, $125 (for three-quarters of an ounce); Magie Noire, $120; Metamorphose by Jean La- Porte, $150."



Bottle:


The bottle was designed by Pierre Dinand in 1982. It was manufactured by L. Bormoli with plastic components supplied by Landini.


Country Life, 1982:
"For women who like the special clothes we have been talking about, K de Krizia is a delicious, rich and sensuous scent. There are three strengths, for different times of day and night — eau de toilette, eau de parfum and parfum — and the frosted bottle, designed by Pierre Dinand."

Fate of the Fragrance:


K de Krizia has suffered from a reformulation in recent years and some of the rich, florals and other notes such as oakmoss have been removed due to IFRA restrictions and modern tastes.
  • Top notes: aldehydes, peach, hyacinth, neroli and bergamot
  • Middle notes: carnation, orange blossom, orchid, orris root, jasmine, lily-of-the-valley, rose and narcissus
  • Base notes: clove, leather, sandalwood, amber, musk, civet, oakmoss, vanilla, vetiver and styrax
