    Default Dior La Collection Privee - Price Increase / Update

    Hey Guys,

    Went to my local Dior boutique today to pick up some ambre nuit and much to my surprise The cost of the fragrance has increased from $170 to $210 for the 4.25oz. According to the website just a few days ago it was still $170 but the SA told me it went up a few months ago and its likely to go up yet again soon.

    A $40 hike is fairly steep in my opinion but Im not really complaining because the amount of juice you get for the money is still great but Im never going to go through 4.25oz.

    Also I enquired about some of the discontinued fragrances like Mitzah and Vetiver. She informed me that most boutiques still have them but they wont be getting restocked. So once they sell through what they have they will be gone. So if youre looking to get your hands on one of the discontinued act fast.

    5.) Santa Maria Novella Muschio
    4.) Dior Homme Intense ( Vintage )
    3.) Dior La Collection Privee Ambre Nuit
    2.) Creed Aventus
    1.) Xerjoff Ibitira

    Gosh, I remember paying close to $210 for the 8oz+ size years ago.

    Not a good direction. Getting rid of Vetiver was an atrocity. None of the other exclusives that I've tried have really done anything for me. I guess that's a good thing with the price hike...

    Just a month ago the Vegas boutique said the price increase would be to $190. So if $210 is true it has gone from $155 to $210 in less than a year.

    Crap.

    however, for a "Prive" line fragrance, they aren't priced unreasonably. I suppose the adjustment - while extreme - simply puts it more in line with others. In fact, it's still a little below other exclusive fragrance lines.

    It's bad news indeed as I am still looking for a Dior Vetiver bottle. Are they trying to increase the Privee's price to be in line with other exclusives? A 3.4 oz Armani Prive Rose d' Arabie is $285 which is less juice and more expensive.

    Yeah not sure whats going on but I wonder what the next price hike will be. Im guessing another $40 to $250.

    Today my Ambre Nuit was 228 after tax.

    If youre looking for vetiver I know they have it. I think they may only have the 8.4 though. looked like they only had a couple left.

    That must have recently jumped $10.

    Dammit.

    $155>$170>$210. This is getting pretty bad. And there's still so many I want from the line. The prices are still better than other house exclusive lines but slowly are catching up.

    I'll have to snatch them up as soon as possible before prices once again increase.

    Website is still $170.00 for 4.25-oz. The only one that is higher is Gris Mantaigne at $190.00.

    Same thing happened with the last increase. The Boutiques were several months behind the Dior website.

    I knew this was coming. Thank God I bought the last Mitzah from Saks last week.

    I need to hurry up and get another BDA.

    At least it's still better to buy from the Dior site than from some eBayers:

    I just picked up the large bottle of Dior Vétiver (8.5oz) and it was indeed $295, the new price. It was $250 just a few months ago, before they officially discontinued it. But, I needed a backup badly and forked over my Amex, muttering the words "shut up and take my money!"

    I'm a little confused now, is the new price for the 4.25 oz $190 or $210?

    Even at the higher price, Rose d'Arabie is still worth it, isn't it? One of my all-time favorites. Love the whole line. Congrats on that pick up.

    For about a year now it seems as thought that line has had all kinds of different prices, like they can't agree on what the price should be. Just my impression, may not be correct.

    Dior's price increases are insane, Dior homme intense went from 73 dollars to 92, now im sure it will be 130 by the end of next year lol.
    I will buy a back up bottle of Oud Ispahan because I am not going to pay over 200, no way.

    It seems like the Dior boutiques increased price the soonest even before their own website reflected the change. I bought an 8.5 oz Ambre Nuit via Dior website this AM for $250 while at the same time paying $300 for an 8.5 oz Vetiver through the Beverly Dior Boutique.

    New prices April 6th will be $190 for the 4.25 oz and $275 for the 8.5oz. I just picked up Mitzah, Bois D'Argent, Ambre Nuit, & Oud Ispahan. The upcoming hike motivated me as those have been on my buy list forever.

    I went to Saks this afternoon to get a bottle of Bois d'Argent before the price increase. The sales associate supposedly wasn't aware of a price increase coming.

    They have a couple of the large Mitzah bottles (I bought the last 4.2 last week). And a couple bottles of Vetiver left.

    They also have the giveaway travel sizes again.
