    Red face My Latest Score

    I recently scored a full bottle of Patou pour Homme Prive. I'd been looking for this one for several months now. I hope to enjoy it for many years to come.

    I love the weird twist off on these bottles too. Never had it in any other bottle. Fun to wear and fun to open and close! No way to lose.
    That girl, that bottle, that mattress and me.

    I can just imagine how happy you are. Congrats. I can't imagine myself without my 3oz Patou Pour Homme.

    Right on Bokaba! It's always fun when you find a fragrance you've been looking for. Was it the last/ only one available?

    I like to think I had something to do with this purchase B, as I remember sending you my sample.

    Enjoy it in good health. I, personally, never got along with PPHP.

    Congrats. I got an identical bottle myself recently, fortunately without too much effort. I was quite lucky and spotted it in the BN marketplace before anyone else nabbed it. I have wondered since how difficult it is to get these days.

    Indeed. I am very grateful to Mike, JaimeB, and others for trading me for some samples of Prive. I truly believe it is one of the best lavender fougeres ever created. It's in my top five with d'Orsay's brilliant Arome 3. It is probably the most I've paid per ml after Vintage Tabarome, but I feel it is certainly worth it.

    I wore PPHP today, and I'm sure I picked up on a jasmine note. I looked at the BN reviews and none mention it. Is my nose deceiving me, or is that right?

    There may be some jasmine--the earlier Ma Liberte lists it. However, high quality natural oils often are very complex and add nuances of other notes.
