    Default Your top three from Dior's La Collection Privee

    Whats your top three (or two or four) from Dior's La Collection Privee?

    For me the jury is still out, but I'm curious to see opinions from y'all who've already decided.

    Leather Oud then Ambre Nuit then Patch Imperial.
    We'll see where this new Oud Ispahan ranks when it gets here.

    1. Ambre Nuit
    2. Leather Oud
    3. Eau Noire

    I haven't tried the new Oud Ispahan yet, but based on the descriptions I've read, it looks very promising.
    Current Top Five:
    1. Bois des Iles--Chanel
    2. George Sand--Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier
    3. L'Ame Soeur--Divine
    4. Violet Blonde--Tom Ford
    5. Santal Blush--Tom Ford

    1. Leather Oud, 2. Eau Noire, 3. (distant) Mitzah.

    Must acquaint myself with the vetiver more (perhaps number 4?)

    1. Granville has become a staple for me - effortless, upbeat, enervating with great garrigue / pine feel blowing through it.
    2. Also bought the Vetiver, it has a lightness of touch I like - leans more towards the Vetiver Pour Elle approach.
    3. Leather Oud. May get one, not sure, but I like it. It has a crisp, no-nonsense 'fortitude' that I like.

    Patchouli Imperiale is also quite enjoyable and I'm looking forward to trying the new Oud Ispahan. I think this is a good series.

    1 - Leather Oud
    2 - Ambre Nuit
    3 - Bois d'Argent (wish this was more concentrated though)

    Honorable mentions Granville and Mitzah... I've been wanting to try Eau Noire for awhile, but I haven't had good experiences with immortelle in the past.

    Patchouli Imperial and Vetiver were very pedestrian to me, but otherwise, this is a great range of offerings. I'm in blind on Heperd's split of the new Oud Ispahan, and am looking forward to seeing how that stacks up.

    I have samples of Ambre Nuit and Bois D'Argent, and they are very nice, but to me Leather Oud is a towering masterpiece.

    Looks like Leather Oud is the star. I have Leather Oud and Bois d'Argent in my arsenal. I like the LO lots, but my enthusiasm for Bd'A is on the wane. Since a lot of you seem to enjoy Amber Nuit, I'm gonna have to give it a try. I want to like Eau Noire because it's so different from everything else, but I can't decide if I like it or the idea of it, if ya' know what I'm saying. Patchouli seems nice but it's hard to imagine a patchouli dominant frag would get a lot of play during the summer where it routinely stays over 100. I like the Vetiver, but can't decide if I like it enough to splurge. The new Oud frag is on my radar as well.

    A rather off-topic question, but with some connection to the main topic of this thread:

    Unfortunately I know none of the scents in this line, so which ones of this series would be good place to start?
    My favorite scent notes include chypre, citrus, leather, moderate gourmands, spice and herbs, powerhouses, not too sweet florals, vetiver, wood, soapy and classic notes, while I do not like aquatics, airy scents, too sickly sweet and cloying gourmands and florals, too smoky and powdery, too "dirty" smelling scents ("dirty" not in terms of sensual, alluring and energetic, but far more like sweaty, overly musky, musty, dusty or fleshy). There must be at least one scent or some scents in this line which might suit my tastes.


    Thanks to the Basenotes experts!

    Mmmmm I think you'd like a lot of them. But to be on the safe side,I'd suggest Bois d'Argent only because it's the most sterile of the bunch. But good nonetheless.

    If you like vetiver, you'll love Vetiver. Same goes for Ambre Nuit.
    Even the patchouli is very nice. Very regal and distinguished.
    Obviously Leather Oud is the most unique, boldest and stunner of the lot.
