    Platinum Égoïste by Chanel

    Baffling: it does smell "1990's generic".

    I got a sample and tried it without many expectations, the top notes reminded me of many others launched during the same decade. However, after hours I realized that PE had what others of its kind lacked, namely, an extraordinary complexity - its base notes are radically different to those in the top notes.

    Its "genericness" can be deceiptive, specially when comparing it to the House's classics for men - Pour Monsieur, Egöiste and Antaeus. Don't let this fool you: in my case, after the top notes faded, I enjoyed it enormously.
