Karl Lagerfeld has launched Private Klub, a new intense fragrance celebrating youth, life, confidence and a VIP guest list. Private Klub is a fragrance for women, inspired by the fleeting nightlife of a sexy woman who goes from club to club and a trail of scent left behind there.

Private Klub bottles are coated with a gold ombré lacquer for the women’s version and silver for the men’s and feature clean lines that evoke Karl Lagerfeld’s ready-to-wear collections. The box and the bottles have identical designs to the first fragrance (Karl Lagerfeld) just the colour scheme is different. Really love the shape of these bottles with the buffed corners they ooze elegance and sophistication. The vial could have been very nice but the gold overspray gives it a cheap look.

Fragrance notes are as follows:
Top notes: Bergamot, Citrus, Peppercorns
Middle notes: Magnolia, Rose, Violet
Base notes: Almond, Musk, Cashmeran *
* Is a synthetic fragrance (not obtained from nature), but is based on musk / amber -> the sense of cashmere .. which can be found as a signature note in the Thierry Mugler fragrances.
This is classified in the floriental (floral oriental) family.

Even thought note wise some of the notes are the same as the original it smells really different in comparison, the original which I prefer is more light and floral very suitable for day time and private club is more warm and strong smelling more of an evening scent. The fragrance releases an ultra-feminine signature full of vitality, modernity and contemporary glamour. It’s a very unique perfume. It lingers very long. Peppercorns as a top note is something you smell immediately which is what makes it a very alluring perfume. This scent is sweet and very similar to Dolce & Gabbana the one desire.
Retail price: R995 (85ml) | R695 (45ml) | R495 (25ml)

Karl Lagerfeld fragrance unveiling

Karl announced back in October 2012 that he was cutting ties with Coty and embarking on a new fragrance venture with Inter Parfums SA.

“When lavender is too basic, I don’t like it, Especially in the modern world, there has to be a kind of sophistication and not too much of a down-to-earth garden, flowery hot-house mood. That’s from the past. There has to be a sophisticated twist in the perfume; if not, the old ones are better. The important thing with a perfume is to be new when it comes out and [then] turn into a classic in your bathroom.” Lagerfeld

The new scents for men and women are based on Lagerfeld’s desire to create fragrances that echo his edgy style, while still feeling classic as can be seen by the design of the bottle. The women’s version uses notes of lemon, peach, roses, magnolias, plumeria, and ambery woody notes, while the men’s scent is centered around an aromatic fern with lavender, mandarin zest, apple, violet leaves, sandalwood, and an amber blend.

KARL LAGERFELD FOR HER is a vibrant floral green fragrance with a fresh, metallic rose,electrified by lime and magnolia, illuminated by frangipani flower and softened by velvety peach, in a fabric of sensual musks oversewed by black ambery.
