    Can't shower for a week or so to justify the cost lol.

    I'm excited to smell these (provided they are ever in a store I frequent).

    This is what I'm trying to say. 3 ml. of an attar or an oud oil is around the same price, and will last you forever. I don't think it's that crazy a price if they wear the same way.

    Exactly. They are priced in accordance with 3ml/1/4 tola of pure oud oil. One swipe layered underneath your Dior Privee of choice (should) work just perfectly creating a lasting accord. This should make the 3ml last for years, especially if one picks up multiples to use with different Privee fragrances.

    Now, priced in accordance with pure oud oil yes but, do they really contain costly ingredients and/or pure oud oil or are we looking at perceived luxury?

    They should make these scents in edp strength. Otherwise, I'm not interested

    I'm hoping this is what we're actually looking at. 3 ml lasting a long time because you get some sort of tool to just touch your pulse points that alters the fragrance applied afterwards. I can't imagine you having to use a whole drop (did I just say that) to get the effect, rather 1/10th or 1/100th of a drop. That would justify the price.

    If - on the other hand - we're talking 9-10 wearings for 330 usd, I'm not sure I'll go for that. Plenty of other less absurdly priced fragrances I want.

    Wonder if the Dior boutiques will have testers?

    I would imagine you would use about 1/10 of a drop for a full wearing.
