The Winter '24 Privèe fragrance selection is inspired by our founder's all-time favourite niche fragrances. Available until end September:

GYPSY WATER (Feminine)

Why I love this scent:

I first discovered Gypsy Water in a small design boutique in Copenhagen. It immediately became my signature scent, which I wore for years. I love how unusual it is. There's a warm depth and sweetness with a citrus open. It's slightly spicy and fresh, warm and sweet with a real depth. It's unusual, unique,  but oh-so-lovable. 

TOP NOTES: Bergamot, Juniper, Pepper

MID NOTES: Pine Needles, Incense, Orris Root 

BASE NOTES: Vanilla, Sandalwood, Amber


SANTAL 33 (Unisex)

Why I love this scent:

A stalwart of the niche fragrance genre, this iconic niche fragrance is captivating. So captivating in fact, the first time I got a whiff was at a coffee shop. It kept wafting across the table, and eventually I gave up and asked the stranger to my right, "what are you wearing?". It was Santal 33. That was over 10 year ago, and I still love this iconic scent for all its spicy, sandalwoody wonder.  

TOP NOTES: Violet, Cardamom Seed

MID NOTES: Cedarwood, Sandalwood, Iris

BASE NOTES: White Musk, Leather, Amber


ERNESTO (Masculine)

Why I love this scent:

One of the most recognised scents from the famed French Maison. I discovered Ernesto in a candle in Vienna. It was sitting on a console in the entrance of a friend's apartment. The candle was unlit, but the scent was unmistakable. It was love at first sniff. Fiercely masculine with an exceptional scent throw, this scent fills spaces with rich Havana-inspired notes of leather, tobacco and dark rum.

TOP NOTES: Bergamot, Grapefruit, Rum

MID NOTES: Oakwood, Clove Labdanum, Patchouli

BASE NOTES: Tobacco, Amber, Leather, Moss



Why I love this scent:

The truth is I don't love all Oud based fragrances. I find some can be too harsh. But this scent is a work of olfactory art. Powerful and distinctive,  It's a masterful blend of Oud and Incense, balanced with the floral sweetness of rose, and a lingering amber accord that brings a rich smoothness to the fragrance. It's an East-meets-West Oudy Rose of the highest pedigree.

TOP NOTES: Pink Pepper, Benzoin

MID NOTES: Rose, Geranium, Incense, Rasberry

BASE NOTES: Agarwood (Oud), Amber, Birch



Why I love this scent:

Oud Satin Mood comes from the same Maison, famed for the creation of Baccarat Rouge. Perhaps the softer, smoother version of my beloved Ombre Nomade. The word "Satin" is well placed in the title. This fragrance is depthy, but so very smooth, well blended and liveable. An Oud based fragrance for sure, but with a lightness that's easy-going and so liveable.


MID NOTES: Bulgarian Rose, Turkish Rose

BASE NOTES: Agarwood (Oud), Vanilla, Benzoin
