I'm quite puzzled by this one from chanel. When I first tried it on my wrist at one chanel outlet it smells like very powdery potent sweet scent with fruity notes. So I purchased one bottle from the auctions then when I first sprayed from that bottle the smell is so totally different from what I've known to be egoiste. It starts off very sharp and pungent greasy gasoline type of smell that reminds me of antaeus by the same house. Then it drys down into some soft sandalwood with only a very soft hint of what I previously identified as the egoiste smell. I thought I've got a knock-off so I went back to the chanel outlet and sniffed the tester on display and now it also smells like the one I've got. I find it to be not even half as potent or strong as Opium PH EDP by ysl. What are your thoughts on this?
