    Default Les Exclusifs / Privee collection

    I'm planning on heading to Selfridges in London next week. Can you recommend 3 Chanel's I should sniff out from Les Exclusifs and 3 Dior's from the privee collection. I haven't smelt anything from either of these collections as yet.

    Chanel:
    Coromandel - the most beautiful patchouli fragrance I've ever smelt
    Cuir de Russie - a great leather, on the softer side
    For a third choice I'm not sure, maybe 31 Rue Cambon.

    Dior:
    Bois d'Argent
    Ambre Nuit

    So many things to smell. I'd say
    Chanel:
    Sycomore: fresh woody vetiver
    Bois des Isles: warm sandalwoody
    Cuir de Russie: smooth floral leather

    Dior
    Leather oud: woody smoky oud
    Eau Noire: licorice-immortelle fougere
    Oud ispahan: smooth rose oud

    These 4 Les Exlusifs are all jawdroppers: Coromandel / Sycomore / Bois des Iles / 31 Rue Cambon.

    Chanel's Eaud de Cologne is certainly a good starting point for traditional colognes.

    Default Re: Les Exclusifs / Privee collection

    Sycamore (beautiful, rich, clean, smoky vetiver)
    Coromandel (patchouli done well...almost gourmand...beautiful fragrance)
    Bois des Iles (rich, warm sandalwood, egoiste's rich counterpart)

    Agreed - from the thread title I was looking forward to discussing the Armani Prive line (Dior's high line is called the Couturier collection). The Prive frags get overlooked a lot here on BN.
    Also check out Cedre Olympe, it's a terrific and relatively unqiue fragrance. I also liked the feminine Cuir Amethyste when I tried it.

    As for the best Chanels and Diors, it absolutely has to be:

    Sycomore
    Coromandel
    Bois des Iles

    Oud Ispahan
    Leather Oud
    Ambre Nuit

    The lady at Selfridges Dior gave me 5ml samples of Eau Noire and Bois D'argent which was very generous (though I did ask for them). I love Eau Noire but I left europe so am making my 5ml bottle last. Bois D'argent does nothing for me, it's nice enough. I also like chanel sycomore
