Hunters and Collectors
We men are often said to be hunters and gatherers. I'd say that's probably true! The passion of hunting and gathering can take many forms. I guess it's in our blood, too. It can be watches, antiques, cars, wines, art or pictures. With us men here at Parfumo, it's perfume, among other things. Perfumes are art, too. They are also like a painting or an antique. Except we don't hang these paintings on the wall like we do with a picture. We wear the painting on our skin and under our shirts. KL Homme by Karl Lagerfeld is such a fragrance painting not least because its value has recently been constantly rising and continues to rise!
KL Homme is probably one of the most important works of art for the man Karl Lagerfeld had created. A citric prelude of dried orange peel and slightly tangy bergamot opens the top note. It is not yet clear where the journey will take us. But relatively quickly it goes in the spicy direction. Cinnamon is the first to be recognized and is supported by spicy floral tones of carnation and a light herbaceous note of geranium in the heart note. A light chord rose flashes from time to time. Never really there, but not really gone either. All fragrances become more and more creamy at a certain point in time, which is most likely due to the sandalwood, which gradually combines with an earthy soft patchouli. The perfume has a relatively rapid development in the head and heart note. They follow very fast one after the other. Until then, the fragrance can still be classified as spicy floral. But what turns quickly in the base. KL Homme develops into an extremely sensual and warm-hearted Oriental. Powdery tones of resinous amber and dry, dusty vanilla lie over the composition and are in turn refined by a waxy, soft and creamy-delicate benzoin. KL Homme gets a touch of gentle animalism from the addition of leathery, sour civet. This note breathes into the perfume the last nuance of passion that made it so unmistakable and makes it so distinctive.
KL Homme Is a work of art and meanwhile almost an antique and has cult status among connoisseurs. Very precious and very hard to come by. A perfume which is still highly sought after by many men all over the world and therefore very rare. I personally still got a relatively cheap bottle, if you can call 125ml for 250€ cheap! But I also saw the same size for 3.400€ in the universe of the internet. It may sound utopian, but even this one will one day be sold. I'm sure you are! With KL Homme Karl Lagerfeld has made one of the biggest litters with KL for Frau und Lagerfeld Cologne in his career. Unmistakable and unique! Just like Karl Lagerfeld and the bottle itself, which for me is one of the most beautiful of its time and with its design is strongly based on Art Deco. Wonderful!
So gentlemen,...the hunt is on!
Then do our reputation all honour and go hunting when you feel the need to own this fragrance and have it in your collection. Prices have risen continuously since the death of Mr. Lagerfeld. This also applies to all other fragrances of the first generation. And if they actually get that scented painting, they'll wear it on their skin. Although on the wall he also does very well!
They'll be envied, of course!
