    Default CHRISTIAN Dior Privee Recommendation (Private Collection)

    Guys - which 1 bottle is worth splashing your hard earned cash on.
    I detest Christian Dior' Dune,Bvlgari Black and Chrome Azzaro.

    Hope no scent falls within this 3 olfactory disasters according to my taste.

    I thank you sincerely for your contribution.

    Leather Oud, followed by Ambre Nuit, possibly Bois d'Argent.

    *edit - missed the one-bottle limit. I actually just went for decants of these three after sampling most of the range.

    I love leather oud, but your mentioning Black as a disaster means that you may not like it either (Black has rubber, Leather oud has leather, they're different, but they both have some automotive theme).

    I also like Mitzah, amber patchouli, smoother.

    Thanks guys - i am narrowing it down to Leather Oud and Amber Nuit, though leaning on the later.
    Leather Oud - going by the name alone, does not look well in humid climate, lets see.

    My favourite is Eau Noire, which is kind of a weird smell. Reminds me of a variety of fresh lavender i sometimes smell, but I don't think its a "lavender" scent. I also have Bois D'argent, but i decided I don't like it. You should ask for a sample before committing to one. The bottles are big, it's quite a commitment)

    I'd like to purchase a sample of Leather Oud and Ambre Nuit to get a full wearing.

    The PERFUMED COURT has these but they are labeled under something different than the PRIVEE collection. Were these originally from another line before the PRIVEE collection came out ?

    Thanks for the info.

    I've only tried the original 3 and of those, Eau Noire was the immediate stand out. Really great stuff.
