Introduced to the world in 1973, this fragrance had long been reserved by Mrs. Estee Lauder for her own personal use. Her friends insisted that this private masterpiece be made public. Precious and quite rare, "Private Collection" creates the feeling that you’ve gathered flowers, green leaves and spices from your private greenhouse. The Parfum Cologne Spray has a lighter concentration of essential oils than the Pure Fragrance Spray, giving it a more casual feeling, perfect for daytime or warmer weather.
HAVE USED THIS PERFUME SINCE THE EARLY 80'S. HAVE TRIED OTHERS OVER THE YEARS, BUT ALWAYS WENT BACK TO "PRIVATE COLLECTION". MY ONLY COMPLAINT IS THAT ESTEE LAUDER STOPPED MAKING THE DUSTING POWDER........IT WAS FABULOUS.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
