Pour Homme Prive - one spirtz is all I get
I received a bottle that belonged to a friend in the fragrance community who passed away, there were only 10 or so millilitres remaining and most of it evaporated during shipping so I wanted the one spritz I sprayed on that was left in the sprayer tube. It opens up like a 90's Fougere, lavender-centric with coumarin from the hay, oakmoss in the background and galbanum driving herbal bitterness to tame the creation. In about ten minutes the perfume starts to resemble Patou Pour Homme EdT, patchouli, leather and pepper brings about a facet reminiscent of the animalic-spice of its precursor.

It's painfully beautiful, restrained where it has to be, masterfully created by Jean Kerleo's capable hands - I truly believe the man is the most talented perfumer of our age.

Jean Kerleo's *Real* Ultra Masterpiece...
Patou pour Homme Prive is a masterpiece and Jean Kerléo is a genius. I could stop this review right there and have covered what you need to know, but with a scent this amazing, I feel I would be doing one of the all-time great scents and noses both a great disservice.

Patou pour Homme Prive is a reference quality fougere that opens with a brilliant lavender note combined with subtle hints of citrus. I am not a lavender fan at all, but this lavender is so well-done that one can't help but be swept away with its incredible execution in Prive. The scent then moves to its coumarin heart with the lavender still hanging around creating a bit of a powder to mix with a nice clean hay accord. Later, a sublime primary sandalwood note couples with patchouli and subtle vanilla accents forming the amazing base that may be the best part of this near-perfect concoction. Classy, subtle, harmonious, perfectly blended... I could go on and on but it has been all said before by many others who know how to express their feeling much better than I.

Alas, just like many of the all-time greats, Prive has long since been discontinued and sells for insanely large sums of money on eBay and elsewhere (if you can find it at all). I can safely say that if you could only own one fougere in your wardrobe, this is it and it deserves a purchase even at the unbelievably lofty prices it now commands. Everyone should purchase a decant at the very least before the dwindling supplies are exhausted. 5 stars out of 5.
