Silver Fox from the bottle
The more grown-up twin of various Tonkbohnen disco jerks. One who comes in a suit and leather trench coat instead of brand-name sneakers, and rather spends a whiskey instead of the peppishot. Noble and multi-layered like that whisky, with always new depths to discover - but unfortunately only as short-lived as its wearer.

A sports car without horsepower
This fragrance is a real pleasure!
Like a good whiskey, a nice leather sofa and despite these tart, rather masculine notes, a pinch of sweetness comes to the whole harmoniously rounds off.

As much as this perfume inspires me from the pure fragrance, the more disappointed me the performance.

Maximum 4 hours Perceptible and the projection is vllt 30-60 minutes.
The performance makes this perfume unfortunately unterbrauchbar.

For a date lacks the projection and for everyday life the performance.

Nevertheless, I would classify it for the winter and the later evening hours, whereby it can be worn everywhere well, since it is very pleasing.

Would there be an Intens variant, which does everything twice as good, it would definitely be a 10/10 !
So it is unfortunately midfield and should really only be bought Strongly Reduced.
For all whiskey and leather lovers who like it more mainstreaming, can strike here without hesitation, provided you can cope with the performance.

Extraordinary Gem by Carolina Herrera
You get a blast of sweet-freshness and then the fragrance quickly follows into a dominant and masculine scent with a noticeable leather and whiskey note with a decent amount of spiciness from the cardamom.

It's a nice fragrance but is far too overhyped... and just does not excel in any individual category, in my opinion...

I'm not quite sure in which circumstance I would ever wear this fragrance over any others in my collection...

Date-night? So many better options. Big Social Events? Much better performing and smelling and attention-grabbing scents available.

As usual, if you love it, then, rock it confidently.

Picture a wealthy young guy dressed in a classy suit lounging in a leather chair at the golf club...
Opening with a discrete hint of citrusy grapefruit and sweet benzoin, which is taken over by a slightly spicy whiskey and tobacco note mixed with lavender that ends in leather/suede flanked by tonka bean and cardamom. To be fair, it does remind me of the original CH Men (and even YSL La Nuit a bit), but less sugary, more boozy and with more depth. Could also be an alternative to Pure Malt, if you're not too fond of the A-Men patchouli signature. Moderate projection and great longevity.

All in all, a great scent for fall and winter nights and I'm pretty sure that when my bottle of CH Men runs out, this will be the replacement. FB worthy, well done Herrera.

The leather jacket tightrope act
CH Men Privé is sensual and also a bit wicked. But in no perverted way. And certainly not in that 50 Shades of Grey way. The fragrance starts off relatively sparkling with cardamom and grapefruit. The opening is fresher than I expected for this type of fragrance. But relatively quickly the scent takes on its own DNA. Smoky, sweetish with a nice portion of leather and whisky.

I can absolutely understand why women like this scent on men. There is this certain mixture of masculine and playful sweetness, which here shows wonderful contrasts to the ingredients. The tangy leather is somewhat balanced with the sweetness of whisky and tonka bean. I personally smell a little tobacco in the leather accord, even if it is not listed.

The fragrance is often associated with "bad boys". For that he is still too well-behaved for me and I miss the really animalistic one. When I think of CH Men Privé, I think more of the young nerd who, for the first time in his life, experiences the mystery of the "tight dance number" in a bar with an older woman and feels like James Deen.

Beautiful Sweet Leather
This is a light leather fragrance. Isn't beast mode and becomes a skin scent after an hour. I blind bought this and it’s one of my favorites. Notes of cardamom, tonka and leather. It’s one of my go-to scents for fall in the office.

Wow ????
Does this fragrance need any introduction? Often called the bad boy leather jacket fragrance and hyped to death by @jeremyfragrance. I thought it was overhyped at first but then I smelled it and must agree to the hype. It really stands out of all the generic fragrance out there. A blend between, leather, whiskey and Tonka bean. You also have some beautiful cardamom in it. I’m usually not a huge fan of leather fragrances but this one is an exception. The bottle is very creative as well. One bad side… the performance could be much better. Take a decant with you because re spraying every 3 hours is mandatory. But still I consider it to be a beautiful addition to my collection.

"Everytime I hug a girl...
... I get a compliment"

Short disclaimer, if you want to go directly to the fragrance description, please scroll down a bit:

In everything you read and see, you should always remember that perfumes, like all other things, are a matter of taste.
Just because person x gives his mustard,
no matter how prestigious it is or how many thumbs up, cups, criticism or (not)helpful- ratings
there is for that mustard,
you should always take matters into your own hands.
You can read knowledge and experience, but then:

Even in the field, on your own skin, test with your own nose, ask yourself the question "Does the fragrance suit me or what I want to embody" and then form your own opinion from the overall picture that emerges.

Not just buy, because it was on the Internet that one person and his 79 Likes find this scent cool.
For example, I found a lot of what Jeremy recommended fantastic, some irrelevant and some horrible In the end, I resold a lot of things I ordered semi-blind.
Beware of blind purchases.
But now to the fragrance.

With the title Jeremy is right, at least in his and my life-world.

Prive begins with sweet cardamom, which is intercepted by tart grapefruit.
No cotton candy; the tart sweetness gets a seductive, wicked touch through whiskey and (weak) leather in the heart, which immediately reminds of bar evenings in the Irish Pub. But the cardamom remains present and for about 2 hours an absolutely attractive scent hangs in the close air of the wearer, which, applied to the neck, brings a compliment with almost every hug.*
In the drydown, woods and tonka bean join in to provide a smooth finish.

But the strength of the fragrance is in any case in the head and heart.

On long evenings or for dancing, the fragrance may have to be sprayed on, but after a maximum of 4 hours it can only be perceived up close. The Sillage decreases rapidly after the first two hours.
*Of course it depends on the setting in which the fragrance is worn!
Atmosphere:
It smells of sweet alcohol, tobacco smoke, leather jackets and stupid decisions. Irish pub, pub crawl or clubbing.
Privé is a pure fragrance and comes through the sweetness much better at colder temperatures 15C->. In midsummer I would take something else.
It's also good for a date, although I personally would take something less sweet, because whiskey and cardamom in combination are already quite a good way to go, making for a very attractive but also challenging combination. As I said before, I prefer it when celebrating.

One final little comparison:
Privé often has to compete in lists with the "Best Date - Fragrances". The One and LNDLH should also be mentioned here.
While The One is too sweet, I find it almost infantile, LNDLH is too powdery/heavy for me.
Privé beats the press out of both and is, because it is almost only available on the Internet, also something that you will not smell as often - anyway not because the Sillage is not room filling.

Absolute test recommendation! Tip: Give the fragrance some time and wear it a few times before you judge. I have also bellied several times until I have learned to love it.
Looking forward to the exchange, good time, cya

Why did you spill whisky on my leather jacket?
Because I'm dying to get a feel for how CH Men Prive sniffs.

Once again one of those fragrances, on which you as an interested fragrance user and YouTube viewer have become known through our well-known fragrance youtuber. How often do I still have the clacking of the cap in my head.

But even away from that, this scent is not bad. Far away from other scents that go in this bar-scented direction. Less old-timers club, but much more hipster bar. Less smoke, more tonka, spice and above all more alcohol.

I imagine a guy in his 30s dressed in a leather jacket. After he sits down and orders a bourbon, a lady from the other side of the bar smiles at him. As she walks up to him and joins them, she has the misfortune of spilling the bourbon. Slowly he runs along the counter and drips in fine nuances on the leather jacket which is on the bar stool. He doesn't mind and dries his jacket. This one has already been through a lot.

The scent that is now in the air can be described as the CH Men Prive. Leather, alcohol, tonka and spice.
The Sillage is pretty good, especially in the beginning, and also the durability is very good.

A fragrance that you can enjoy very well at temperatures below 20 degrees and especially in the evening, even if it doesn't make it into my collection.

A long wait
The fragrance was felt eternally on my wish list, this is certainly the case with many perfumes, since he meets an online here and there from time to time, but in shops he is not to be found.
The normal ch men has become one of my favourites for spring. The dna is clearly visible here, similar sweet but with a darker undercoating. Leather chord, the often described whiskey is different than imagined, A somewhat fiery burning flame chord,
Which harmonizes nicely with the gummy bear sweetness.
The sillage is slightly below average, shelf life better than expected as it has always been described as extremely bad,
But since leather chords often do not stand still for a long time I was positively surprised,
The cardamom is present, and in combination with lavender I am very familiar with la nuit de lhomme
In addition leather, thyme and a burnt something.
I would like to have the bottle alone in the collection.
Autumn winter, or during the day everything under 13 degrees
About that I would prefer the normal ch.
The priveé appears masculine, spicy with good sweetness Very inviting. Great perfume
Those who like la nuit de lhomme and wish for an even deeper leathery base will be happy with this. It's not so well known either.
Maybe this comment will help the one or the other

Sweet leather, bit boozy (but not whisky), bit powdery with a touch of grapefruit. Similar vibe to Ferrari Leather Essence & Bentley Intense

This is the most sweet nothing thing on the CH catalog. Do you want whisky? Buy yourself a bottle of Jack Daniels.. 1/5

A suited Ace-10 in poker. If not played with caution then its overtly boozy feel may backfire. Also weak projection, but it's a winning hand

The DNA of the OG in the background with an accord of leather and a whisky undertone. I prefer this one because its not excessive sweet.

I bought CHMen Privé to replace CHMen and YSL LNDLH due to performance issues. Now I have another fragrance with performance issues as well.
