    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.

    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 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!"

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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?

    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 !! ???

    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.

    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.

    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.
