Summary: The start is sharp, bracing & bitter. The galbanum opening in this one is reminiscent of Vent vert by balmain. The sharp note is cold, sharp like the crack of a whip. I loved it! This is green to the max! As it dries down, I start to smell some jasmine & a beautiful honeysuckle. It's also slightly peppery because of the coriander, I think. The base is creamy sandalwood goodness. This is classy, feminine just beautiful! This reminds me somewhat of Chanel 19.
Summary: PINE. Not the bottle in the picture above, but an older vintage frosted glass with plastic stopper (I have a mini). Beautiful unsweetened, but not bitter, natural pine fragrance that is a floral chypre whose rose patchouli accords are evident in the dry down. Wonderful, easy to wear compared to vintage azuree or aliage; NOT musty or bitter mossy like some vintage chypres. Although it has honeysuckle in its top notes, this is not like a modern sweet honeysuckle scent.
Summary: Ive been wearing Estee Super Cologne for over 25 years,am a nurse in the ER, and there is not a night that goes by that iam not complimented on how nice I smell...by both men and women. Ive written down hundreds of times for men the name of this cologne so that they could buy it for theirs wives!!!
Summary: Private Collection was my signature scent throughout the 1980s. I got away from scent, if one may say it this way, for about twenty-five years, but recently, I have experienced a Renaissance in my love for scent, and one of the first I ordered from Amazon Prime was Private Collection. Private Collection is one of the most delicious, enticing, voluptuous, sexy, and strong (think character not smell) scents that I have ever smelt.
Summary: I came across this fragance after being a big fan of White LInen, since then I have never strayed. That was 20 yrs ago. I am consistently told I smell good by both men and women, and am asked all the time for the name of my perfume .... wish it came in a bigger bottle!
