Rated 5 out of 5Â by Sandygale Private Collection
I am biased as this is my favourite perfume. Unfortunately, this is the only product produced in this fragrance. A smaller version would be appreciated - handbag size - as this is the large and only size produced.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer A classic destroyed.
The ingredients listed for Private Collection include:
Honeysuckle, Jasmine, Ylang-Ylang, Coriander, Sandalwood and Patchouli. Who are they kidding?
This used to be a Grand Dame of a perfume, with a big personality that was either love or hate. It has lost that now, with this new re-formulation. No longer do I get the lovely opening burst of Honeysuckle, and all the great mixture of smells in the middle, before the gorgeous ending of Sandalwood and Patchouli. All I smell now is something akin to Dandelion and cheap soap. My beautiful classic Private Collection is no more. It seems it has kept the name but little else, smelling now only of something synthetic and watery. If I'd known Estee Lauder were going to do this, I'd have stocked up on a few bottles of the pre-reformulated stuff. All the classic Lauder perfumes I love to wear have been changed. Estee is now unrecognisable too, and doesn't last ten minutes on my skin. I have worn both these fragrances for years, as well as Cinnabar, and now wouldn't waste my money on them. I will have to stick with 'new' perfumes rather than be disappointed with unrecognisable, changed classics.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Buttercream Debenhams great, product disappointing
Had read so much about this perfume being an absolute classic jealously guarded by EL herself, but I found it terribly disappointing - pungent, powdery, slightly bitter, like an old bottle of perfume from the 50's. NOT a modern perfume. Many say they are asked what perfume they are wearing - I 'm not sure I would regard that as a compliment in the circumstances! Having said that, it's all down to preference so it may well just be me! Debenhams delivery excellent as usual.
