We don't know about you, but we are awful glad it's Friday — has this been an especially hellacious week, or what? Well, the good news is that the weekend is mere hours away. The other really good news is that we've got just the beauty treat to send you off with a smile on your face: Armani is releasing a veritable fragrance-palooza of their super-niche, luxury perfume line, Armani Privé.
The brand has been releasing its ultra-exclusive Privé scents in limited-editions since 2004, usually debuting just one at a time in small batches. Once they sold out, they were gone for good. Well, someone over there was feeling generous, because this summer sees the launch of four brand-new scents and the re-issue of all 10 of the previously launched scents. We're having a genuine Scarlett O'Hara, hand-to-the-head-and-fanning-ourselves moment right now.
The four "new" scents — Oud Royal, Cuir Noir, Ambre Orient, and Rose d'Arabie — were originally launched overseas back in 2011, but never made it to the U.S. They are part of the La Collection des Mille et une Nuits that was inspired by the classic Arabian tale, One Thousand and One Nights. They showcase notes of oud, leather, amber, and rose, respectively.
For true fragrance obsessives, the chance to get another crack at the Privé portfolio is practically invaluable — these scents truly are artisanal and many the perfume groupie has lamented their loss. Predictably, they cost a pretty penny ($160-$275 a pop), but if you're the type of girl who views fragrance as part of your wardrobe and is always on the hunt for the next rare find, then this is just the kind of crazy-amazing news you've been waiting for.
