The 1970s classic green floral perfume by Estée Lauder initially worn both by the brand founder and Grace Kelly, Private Collection, turned up together with fair weather at a local perfumery in the guise of an Eau de Private Collection. The packaging is slightly different. The flacon, inspired by a gold bar, slips out of the box on its back instead of lying on its side as for the spray parfum concentration. The glass of the bottle is frosted. And of course the concentration has been reworked...
There are many new eaux versions of fragrances this season, but this one seems to have been around for a while. You vaguely remember seeing two different concentrations in the past on the Estée Lauder website, but it's not there anymore.
The brand itself have no readily available specialized press materials concerning this iteration. They have the perfume, and now I have it, but I can't tell you therefore when it was created. It's re-appearing this spring is all I can say. I will also be able to review it later on.
And to make things even more intriguing, when I finally had the idea of turning to the fragrance industry bible directory Michael Edwards Fragrances of the World 2012, it's not listed in there.
