    I have the Bois d'Argent. It is a classy fragrance which my lady also enjoys.

    I tested the range pretty extensively on a recent trip to HK, and besides Leather Oud (I bought that one), I think Bois d'Argent and Oud Ispahan are the best.

    Oud Ispahan is too similar to other rose/aoud combos, so if you own Black Aoud, NdN etc you can skip it, but it's still a lovely frag.

    If you like patchouli, also check out that one - I'm not really a patch fan but Dior's one rather surprised me. Pretty damn good.

    I own Eau Noire, great if you like immortelle. I also like Mitzah a lot (amber, patch, warm). And as others have said, Oud ispahan is a classic rose oud combo.

    Ambre Nuit and Vetiver are definitely worth trying. Oud Ispahan is ok, well done for sure, but somewhat unnecessary given others that do the rose oud better.

    So far, Leather Oud for me, though I enjoy Ambre Nuit and Eau Noir.

    Personal favorite: Granville.

    Also like: Leather Oud, Oud Ispahan, Vetiver - it's a good solid line overall IMO.

    where did you order it from? You should have called the Dior Store in LV and they would have sent you samples of the entire line.

    Vétiver is my favorite, followed by Patchouli Imperial and Ambre Nuit. Also liked Granville and New Look 1947.

    I've only sampled a few, but Oud Ispahan is my favourite of them so far, with Leather Oud a very close second.

    The only ones that i tried is the ones that I own a large decant, Leather Oud and Oud Ispahan.

    I like them both.

    Tried both Cologne Royale and Granville. Both really spoke to me, though I tested neither on my skin, only on paper. Judging from that, both had excellent longevity and smelt great. Pondering pulling the triggers on both when visiting London in January.

    At least try those out. Leather Oud and Oud Ispahan are also recommended from several basenoters. In addition, check out Alfaroms blog where he perfectly and masterfully describes and reviews the Dior priv range. It's great reading.

    I really like this line. I have tried them all and think there are some gems here. I have Leather Oud. The other three that impressed me the most were Vetiver..Ambre Nuit...and Patchouli Imperial.

    Very nice collection.

    I like
    Oud Ispahan (a blend of oud oil and oud wood)
    Vetiver - a classic
    Mitzah - spices and amber
    Leather Oud - Animalic Oud wood
    Patchouli Imperial - very wearable patchouli
    for swap/sale:

    My favorites from the line are Ambre Nuit, Oud Ispahan, and Eau Noire. (The Eau Noire is very heavy on the immortelle, though; if you're not a fan of that note, you almost certainly will not like Eau Noire.) Cologne Royal is pretty good too, but not FBW.
    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

    No! But you can call an order from the Dior boutique in Las Vegas. It's located in Crystal's mall or you can order it online from dior's site.

    I don't know if they'll ship to Canada And if they do, they won't be at fault if the bottle is taken by customs or is lost.
