This is surprisingly good!
Opening with a peppery citrus, Strictly Private turns into a woody ambery vanilla with hints of tobacco and patchouli. Creamy, calm, soft and slightly sweet. A green floral with a herbal top and a floral heart. Sensual, warm and elegant and with just the right amount of spices - sort af a nutty creme brulée with basil. Fortunately, the rose note is quite subtle, as rose usually turn fragrances very feminine on my skin. The main accord is balsamic and longevity is good.

This being only the second Baldessarini offering I've tried (the first one being the equally excellent Ambré), I am so far quite impressed by the high standard of house. Looking at the ridiculous prices on Ebay at the moment, I have a sneaking suspicion that this one may be discontinued though ?

I'm not sure if it's the small traces of rose or almond that do it, but I find there to be just a hint of "Guerlinade" in the background of this woody oriental composition. If you're a fan TF Noir Extreme, you'll probably enjoy this one as well. Definitely more of a dating than a clubbing fragrance, and overall Strictly Private smells way more expensive than it is/was (based on the original retail price.)

Fine simple amber
I've been gifted this perfume by a precious friend!
This perfume was one of my most beloved four years ago and is, still is, one of the best ambers in designer world.
Strictly Private meets customers' utmost satisfactory level because of its simplicity and complexity! This perfume is result of opposite moods; warm velvety vanilla and rose and resins at one side, junipers, basil and pepper at the other side. So the perfume opens with warmth-injected freshness which is higher than routine of designer perfumes.
Yet with all these, Strictly Private is a simple, frank, straight and gentle perfume. One of the easiest to wear scents for evening, every season you wish, but only evening and night. Not a daytime cologne.

~ Private & Personal ~
~ Strictly Private is aptly named with it's subtle romantic notes of rose and seductive vanilla for the nose. It is not as popular and far more discreet in sillage than some other well known date-night scents. This composition of amber, basil, cedar, faint patchouli and an ethereal rose will keep your nose dipping to your wrist and satisfied in your new gentlemanly perfume. This evokes in me the equivalent of a comfortable wool blazer that lays nicely off the shoulder and surrounds you with comfort and warmth. The type of jacket and scent your date will want to steal for her own to ward off the evening chill in the warmth of it's private and personal cloud of cozy vanilla.
Kind Regards, Plat ~
