There are many who still wish to recreate the unbeatable poise, beauty, and fashion style that made Jackie O. one of the most recognized and loved former American first ladies. Not long ago, it seemed all we could learn about Jackie was her style and fearlessness. But how would you feel to learn what this iconic first lady smelled like?
Thanks to Jackie O’s surviving daughter, Caroline Kennedy, we now have concrete evidence on all the first lady’s most-loved fragrances, including her number one choice, Lovely Patchouli 55.
Of course, we will spill all the secrets of how Jackie fell in love with such an earthly and unexpected signature scent.
It was all thanks to Aristotle Onassis who proposed to Jackie with a diamond ring and a bottle of Krigler’s Lovely Patchouli 55. This particular fragrance was created to be special as it was the last fragrance made by Albert Krigler before his death. History has it that he personally sourced the highest quality materials to create this comforting and gender-neutral scent.Krigler’s Lovely Patchouli 55 was described as sensuous and provocative. If anything, this fragrance was a perfect match for Jackie’s unique style and strong personality. Other perfumes on Jackie’s favorites list were revealed to be;
The first lady had great taste and her choice of perfumes showed that even more. This Creed Fleurissimo is known for its spot in history as the original scent created for Grace Kelly to wear on her wedding day.

The fragrance is a floral blend of iris and violet, perfectly suited to elegant ladies.

Jean Patou 1000
This fragrance was already in Jackie’s heart before the Patchouli came along. It is a blend of coriander, osmanthus flower, and patchouli. It was a wilder and stronger scent worn by Jackie for most of the 1970s. A bottle of this perfume is a rare find in recent times.
Jil Sander No.4
Next, to the Patchouli fragrance, this is another big player on this list because of its great significance in Jackie’s life. Jil Sander No.4 was the perfume of her last years. It helped her through the most challenging times and became a part of the end of Jackie’s life story. Jil Sander No.4 was the last fragrance worn by Jackie.
