    Granville
    Patchouli Imperial
    Oud Ispahan
    Vetiver
    Ambre Nuit

    I respect Eau Noire and Leather Oud for what they do but I don't find them easily wearable.

    Of the few I've tried I like these the best although I'm not sure how wearable Mitzah is, it is special.

    Ambre Nuit is quite nice and is recommended.

    The others in the line did not really click with my tastes, save in part, Granville, that smelled incredible on paper and at first on skin, but then it turned into something completely different in the heart notes after the top notes quickly dissipated; and what it turned into was an astonishing disappointment. Too bad on that one in particular, because the top notes were some of the best I have ever smelled.
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage/V.I.P. for Men (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4)
    Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6)
    Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)
    9) Javanese Patchouli (Zegna) - tie
    9) Monsieur de Givenchy vintage (Givenchy) - tie
    9) Coeur de Vetiver Sacré (L'Artisan) - tie
    9) X for Men (Clive Christian) - tie
    9) Patou pour Homme Privé (Jean Patou) - tie
    9) Oud Shamash (The Different Company) - tie

    Its difficult to answer that question; there are real GEMS in this line like already stated here .
    So Ihave 4 of them, but still not satisfied which is one of my nasty features.

    When I was in the Dior Boutique in Brussels every scent was gorgeous, I mean ,the surroundings were perfect,a French model ,she was helping me all the way out;

    The so much sought after fragrance Cologne Blanche is re- modeled or whatever and now features as Cologne Royale in this line;only the mysticity around this long lost fragrance is worth visiting the Boutique!

    Then: their latest, Grand Bal , I mean , who would NOT take the Lady Model in their arms and dance away iund the chandeliers in the Dior Boutique?
    Even I ,who at the time wore my Magnum boots under my worn jeans ,could hardly resist.
    But there was this James or who-ever in the boutique , a Maitre D whose sharp eye-control kept everything under the watch,so ,even a faint whimsical moment of " may i have this dance" would 've been knocked down by your own feeling of guilt.....;
    let me move on.

    I have Ambre Nuit & Mitzah , my first conquerings, bought at Harrod's ; if in London,Go There!!
    And take your purse .
    I have Leather Oud ,my fav, and Eau Noire, which is rather brill.
    Missing are: Oud Ispahan & Vetiver.

    Sorry to read in this thread that the midnotes of Granville are so disappointing because the top is fabulous!

    To conclude: i think Privee a fantastic line,and anxiously waiting for the net one!

    Have a nice day,

    Does anything in this collection resemble Dior Homme (like Chanel's les Exclusifs Bois des Iles is to Egoiste)?

    I have Leather Oud and Granville. Vetiver is next.

    I bought Eau Noir when it launched in London. Rather challenging, IMO, but i enjoyed it to the last drop, nevertheless.

    there's nothing I can think of that's close to DH. Eau Noire is also played on the contrast between a sweet, gourmand note and a fresh, inedible one, but in this case it's immortelle rather than choco-coffee and lavender rather than iris, and the final effect is quite different, Eau Noire being both fresher in the top and thicker and sweeter in the drydown.

    Thanks for the info. Eau Noire sounds interesting. I just added it on my sample list.

    No

    I'm assuming you've smelled other scents closely linked to DH, like Shalimar Parfum Initial by Guerlain & Power by Kenzo.

    Eau Noire is the sh*t. Wonderful stuff.

    Quick question for you guys - does the 200 ml also come with a sprayer, or are those splash bottles only? I'm pondering the 125's for myself, but my girlfriends brother is starting to get into fragrances, and I'm wondering if I should ask him if he wants to get in on some split action. He's not really interested in original bottles while I am, so this could be a good deal for both of us.

    The leather oud 250ml bottle I have comes with a sprayer.

    What's the price on each bottle size of the Privee line? Also, does each purchase come with samples (ex 5ml bottle samples) at say the Dior NYC shop and/or the Bergdorf Goodman in NYC?

    @canuck21 : I paid 230 euro for a 250 ml bottle, Dior Boutique in Brussels.
    American prices I dont know;
    and yes, 5 ml bottle samples included.
