Fragrance Review For Good Fir 11
Hard to believe this fragrance dates from 1911.
This is exquisite. Smells of a warm wintery unisex cologne, and in fact, it can turn masculine on women because of the heavy fir and pine and the big green vetiver. It’s definitely a Christmas fragrance because it does smell of Christmas tree. It smells of those sites you go to buy Christmas tree where a lot of Christmas trees are put together in the same place. The scent of fir fills the air, pine needles and green notes. The vetiver is dominant in the dry down which is not long to get to as this scent is linear and very easy to wear. This is an outdoorsy pine forest aroma and it gradually turns warmer and smokier, balsamic, resinous, and smoky with incense.
Good Fir is true to it’s name. It’s a fir fragrance which marries green notes with musk and myrrh. The scent evolves quickly. As it opens in the first spritz one can pick out the notes that make up the scent and within a few minutes it’s a beautiful Christmas pine tree forest. The vetiver is quite nice and gives it that realistic forest scent with green notes of grass and pine needles fir and bark. There’s no florals or fruit so the scent does not come off as being fresh. It’s dry and dark, deep, warm, wintery. The aromatic greenery of pine is one of the loveliest I’ve experienced.
Finally the scent is also as much about the incense and frankincense as it is the fir and pine tree. This is a warm and rather airy incense, like puffs of incense that waft through the air and fall gracefully onto your nostrils like censers or Christmas Mass cathedral incense. The scent is not as religious as incense would itself imply. Instead it’s mostly green and woodsy a pine and fir scent of natural beauty. This is linear but for whatever reason it lasts a good long time and has good projection/sillage. This is wearable in the winter months and makes a good unisex fragrance to wear with coats boots and winter clothing in layers. This is unisex and men can rock this cologne as well as women. It is for a mature crowd who can easily wear the Krigler line perfumes which do come off as being sophisticated and mature.
A beautiful Christmas fir tree

Good Fir 11 is for those who love the smell of fir/pine trees. I absolutely love fir and pine, so the discovery of this wonderful gem was such a treasured moment for me. It honestly took me two wears to appreciate this fragrance fully, but it is now cemented as one of my all time favorite fragrances. The coniferous aspect of Good Fir 11 is clear, fresh, and sweet. In fact, Good Fir 11 becomes sweeter over the course of the wear. This fragrance also has excellent longevity and sillage. It is an EDP that lives up to the EDP billing. One of the things I love is when I pull my coat out of the closet a month after I’ve worn GF 11, and find the sweet, fir smell still on my coat. It always brings a smile to my face. This wonderful fragrance is at the top of my personal list for fresh, pine/fir fragrances…there’s nothing else like it!

I had a sample of this that I coveted for some time. It’s the finest pine based fragrance I’ve encountered. The pine scent is clear and up front without being harsh or astringent. It comes off as a soft, slightly sweet pine thats incredibly pleasant to wear.

Very very well balanced fragrance with strong soul. It starts with pine (fir) notes but simultaneously enhanced by oily olibanum. However not listed but for sure there is plenty of vanilla present but not gourmand rather the dry and spicy one that together with vetiver and musk create woody smell. Good Fir develops very slowly however consequently it’s face to sweeter fragrance but than, after 1-2 hours it jumps to the opposite site – starts to be extremely dry, like sand burned by sun. I like this moments of changing because they are so prominent and unusual, completely different than everything what I know from the perfumery world. I can easily recommend the GF to every incense lovers who is a little bit directed to the sweeter fragrances. GF is very expensive but believe me it is worth every penny to spend for such amazing perfume. It lasts long time on your skin but it’s projection and silage is not extremely big. Nevertheless it is something big and it’s name should be described using bold fonts in the perfume history because GF was created in 1911 it means that every fir, resinous fragrances both good one or bad one are reinterpretations of the Good Fir only.

I’ve got a little quantity from a friend to try it.
First of all,let me speak about efficiency:stayng power is a good 8 hours on me,sillage moderate,little trail.
The fragrance has a very piney eucalyptus character with a near candy sweetness,but in a good way.
I have some “piney” scent,but they are very differents,from the sour Eau de 4 Voleurs to the ultra incensed Dubrana’s (Attar Salaam) Aalacho 2.
Good Fir is not sour or not over incensed,but is very fresh,resinous and sweet.
If you know BPAL it could be something like a Black Forest-Dracul mix.
A simple fragrance,but addictive with an outstanding performance.(For a niche Parfume)

I agree this is wonderful stuff. Coniferous and piney without getting pine-sol like with a delicious, cozy, woody warmth at its heart. It’s very difficult to imagine this was released in 1911. I imagine the original was quite different as it wears like the most modern of niche creations. A real beauty.

Again, I’d say it is a unisex fragrance. It will bring you into mysterious pine forest – it’s late summer or early autumn, sun is shining throught the dark pine needles, you can hear the voices of a tribe singing ritual songs and smell burning incences in the air, and suddenly you become a part of it with every single cell. This fragrance has something transparent in it, something very positive and cosy. Absolutely love it!
