    Default New Fragrance: Christian Dior - La Collection Privée Grand Bal

    From boisdejasmin.com:

    Christian Dior is launching a new fragrance in La Collection Privée, Grand Bal. “Grand Bal is an echo of Christian Dior’s great ball gowns, whose full skirts and beauty evoked the petals of a flower in full bloom,” François Demachy, Dior in-house perfumer. It is a classical jasmine blend that includes notes of bergamot, jasmine, Tunisian orange blossom, ylang ylang, New Caledonia sandalwood, and musk. Available from Dior boutiques.

    Sounds cool. I've only smelled about 4 of their private fragrances, and so far I can't say I'm too attached to any of them. Very intriguing concept though. I like the idea of clothing inspired fragrances- Armani Code, Green Irish Tweed (I'm assuming) and now this.

    I'm always puzzled at these jasmines that come out post-IFRA restrictions. But we shall smell...

    What a beautiful concept. God I love this hobby. I need to just start getting decants of more artistic perfumes rather than full bottles of stuff that just smell damn good

    Your first assignment - obtain a sample or decant of M/Mink by Byredo.

    I must admit this doesn't sound like something I'd be interested in, but I will most likely give it a try if I see it.

    Could you elaborate please? I'm ignorant to these restrictions. To the OP, I'll definitely want to try this one out... I enjoy Leather Oud and Ambre Nuit quite a bit.

    I have a lot of faith in the Dior La Collection Privee and despite my dislike for Jasmine I will still try this.

    Everytime I see the title of this thread I see 'Grand Bal' as 'Grand Mal'...as in seizures. Am I alone in this?

    Just arrived at the Dior boutique at the Palazzo in Las Vegas and just bought myself a bottle which was shipped out today. Was also informed by SA that they just got a shipment in of Dior Homme Intense from France if anyone is interested.

    I wanna go to a Dior boutique. Yes, curious on your thoughts about this one, hednic? And how much is a bottle if you don't mind me asking? I really wanna try this though! All those notes I really enjoy! Lol, I have no desire to go to Vegas ever except to smell around at shops, lol.

    The SA there tells me it is "very feminine". 250ml bottles are $230.

    The 125ml was $155. Not bad considering that before the125ml bottles were made available with the built in atomizer I had purchased every other one in the line in 250ml bottles just so that I could get the built in atomizer.

    I dislike the house of Dior, but these note sound very good to me. (Though I don't know what New Caledonian sandalwood is like.)

    Granville is fantastic for the summer, extremely masculine in a good way.

    Hello guys.
    Do you know a site that sells this collection? And ships to Portugal?
    Or can only get this perfumes from a Dior boutique?
    Thanks :-)
