    Default Re: Dior La Collection Privee - Price Increase / Update

    I called into the Dior Boutique in Sydney today, determined to try Bois d'Argent and Granville. I also wanted to check on the numbers of Dior Vetiver they had in stock as I knew it was becoming very scarce. (I have tried it a few times but I don't love it) Unfortunately the SA was only interested in allowing me to look at the six fragrances he had on display. He could not be drawn on how much Dior Vetiver they had in stock as he would need to go downstairs and check the reserve. They had some but it was obvious that he wasn't about to check for me. The other thing I learnt was "Granville is a woman's fragrance and we don't have it down here". I ended up agreeing with his suggestion and tried Cologne Royale on my right and and Eau Noire on my left forearm. I might go back early one morning and find a friendly female SA and try once more to sample Bois d'Argent.

    Don't worry about your US price rising, from memory the Australian price for 250Ml/8.5oz bottles is around AUD$450. I like LIDG, Platinum Egoiste, D&G Pour Homme and CK Truth. Any suggestions for other fragrances to try in the Dior La Collection range? What else has been discontinued and will soon disappear from shelves?

    They'll know when they ring it into the register and the customer says it was $250.00 last week?

    Is it illegal for a particular boutique to increase the price prior to the effective date April 6th? It seems the Beverly boutique might be the only one with the new price. As Cazaubon mentioned, I also just got off the phone with NM SF and it's $250 for an 8.5oz.

    edit - or maybe the Beverly boutique had a different date for price increase?

    Sorry to try and highjack the thread. But I'm thinking about pulling the trigger on mitzah, based on my wardrobe; would you suggest it?

    Anyway, buying straight from dior.com is still (mostly) 170 for 4.25 and 250 for the larger.

    I don't think you can get Mitzah directly from Dior's website.

    Mitzah is kinda soft version of Ambre Sultan.

    ...when I first bought Eau Noire it cost €160 for the 500ml flacon. Now it costs €425. This is within a space of six years. I find this outrageous.
    I seem to be at odds with many basenoters who accept the ridiculously high price levels of niche perfumery, yet complain like hell when a precious rare discontinued gem fetches more than $100 on ebay !! ???

    Triple the price in 6 years is indeed outragous.

    I just took part in a split with heperd, otherwise, I'd pick up a bottle of Vetiver if I could.. Great stuff. Hopefully, I don't run out anytime soon.

    I just checked the Australian prices for Dior La Collection privee fragrances - 125ml is $335 and 250ml is $480. Using the current exchange rate they are 4.25oz US$300 and 8.5oz US$430. The 50% markup for Australian prices is consistent across most fragrances.

    Do the atomizers of these bottles screw off for easy decanting?

    I want to get some Vetiver, but all I can get my hands on is a 250ML. I'll never use that much, so I want to split it with my brother.

    No the atomizers don't screw off, if you have a 10ml syringe and a blunted needle, you're all set to go.

    When Dior released the very first ones in the Prive line years ago, I had bought 4 or 5 of the 125ml bottles among which were Cologne Blanche (no longer available) from the 57th street NYC boutique and they were sold as splash bottles. The manager gave me at no extra charge screw on atomizers to convert them to sprays, but then the cap would no longer fit on them and they didn't look esthetically pleasing. I think that might have been the same back then for the 8.5 oz bottles. That would have been perfect for you needs. I guess a lot of people had complained and Dior then changed all the bottles of both sizes to be sold with fixed atomizers, which I would have personally preferred at that time.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    I like Mitzah, but in my opinion it is redundant to own it if you own Ambre Sultan, which is a stronger, more solid composition.

    I bought a large bottle....only size I could find... on Monday. It arrived today. That is quite a bit of vetiver. Price was $250 and free shipping. I was helped by a very nice SA who did all the legwork.

    I was sent an email from the Vegas boutique that this Saturday will be the last day to place an order before the price increase.
