Well, I discovered www.loveofscents.com where they sell alcohol-free, oil versions of fragrances, so I ordered several samples of different fragrances. With each order, they throw in a free sample, and they threw in "Platinum", their version of Chanel's Platinum Egoiste. I wasn't too impressed with the samples I ordered (I think the Allure had too much vanilla in it), but from the first sniff of Platinum, I was hooked: I REALLY like that unique, cinnamony smell. Actually, I had sniffed the original Platinum before, on paper, and thought it was nothing special... and although they are similar, and I have now worn BOTH, I can honestly say this oil version is BETTER than Chanel's version. So there it is: unless a better scent drifts my way, Platinum is my signature scent.
