Same here. I have both but my acquisition history was just the opposite. I bought the Eau de Cologne Concentree first many years ago and in the ensuing years somehow just totally lost track of it. Forgot I had it, I guess. A prolonged Homer Simpson moment. More recently, with the memory of the exquisite fragrance that Egoiste is I bought the EdT. And of course, wouldn't you know, a couple of months ago I'm rummaging through one of my sock drawers and there, buried at the back of the drawer is my pristine 99 per cent full bottle of Egoiste Concentree. I detect little difference between the two in terms of the fragrance ( the "smell" if you will ) but I do give the nod to the Concentree in terms of longevity. But to put that statement in context, I should state that I get a good 10-12 hours from the EdT so you can imagine the staying power of the Concentree. YMMV.
