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
