If "upper class" had a scent, this would be it. Slim, ash blonde, ladies-who-lunch should wear this scent. Women with Seven Sister educations and trust funds should wear this perfume. Haughty,...

My mom wore this when I was a kid and when we took road trips as a family, the smell of it would make my parents have to pull over to the side of the road and have to hurl. It gave me such a...

A little old-fashioned, but nevertheless a lovely scent on the dry-down. Very, very long lasting.

Ah! This is the best, most unique fragrance Estee Lauder makes, IMO. It's a fresh scent, but very different than most newer fresh scents. It's sorta soapy but herbal. The notes include hyacinth,...

My mother bought so much of this in the 70's that she once got a Christmas Card from Estee herself. So, to me, this is the scent I use when I need comfort and confidence. It brings me happy...

Love, love , love this fragrance. Smells so fresh and clean. I got the green and blue and both are fabulous. Though I think the green smells a little better.

Well, I was simply sucked in by the name Private Collection. (It made me think of ppl like Coco Chanel and Estee Lauder's private stashes of fragrances, unavailable to the public.) Needless to...

A masterpiece of class and sophistication, with a surprising sexy side. Not too sweet, a slightly sharp opening, lots of depth and layers to uncover. This is beautiful! For all its initial...

The worst, reminds me of a sorority sister who had a mother in her 60's. Smells very much like an old lady. It is very sweet and guaranteed to give you a headache.

Lovely green scent; to my nose, PC is almost identical to Vent Vert by Balmain.

A potent beautiful,elegant rich green scent. Like all ELs only a spray and 'walkthrough' is necessary. I enjoy it very much and have worn Private Collection,on and off since 1977.

This is a green scent at it's best. It reminds me of a summer day after the grass has just been cut. You think of outdoors on a lovely day. Men love this one and will ask what you are wearing. I...

I have a love/hate relationship with Estee Lauder perfumes. This falls on the "hate" side of the fence, and I'm not a floral kind of girl, either. I like strong perfumes, but this one is just...

Ok let me start by saying w/ I first spray this on, it irritates me and I dispise the fragrance. Luckily the dry-down disappears to my own nose. But, glory be, I've got men sticking their noses...
