    Default Chanel Egoiste is the holy grail!

    I love this...the first time i put it on i didnt get it, but after a couple wearings...im addicted, this will be my next purchase, well its actually on my Christmas list! This shit is great....screw kouros which to me is so harsh....i know they are so different, but i have heard people refer to it as holy grail, but i think egoiste whoops its ass in its smooth regalness!

    Egoiste is a good HG scent, if you're gonna have a HG.

    It is.....it really is fantastic....but i can't seem to wear it for two consecutive days....it pumps out so much sillage i don't want to smell it for days after i wear it...but then i always overspray it...This time i will just limit myself to 2 sprays under my shirt....No more than that....

    My stock of 3*100ml Egoiste Concentree bottles should highlight how much i love this....Though i am not sure if i'd be able to use all these bottles in this lifetime

    I've never even seen the Concentree!! Now, if you'd like to sell one…

    Congratulations on finding your HG!
    I remember wearing Egoiste years ago.. sadly I can't remember what it smells like, so I'll definitely have to revisit.
    Anyone care to explain the difference between the regular edt and the concentree?

    The differences between the regular Égoïste version and the Concentrée version are as follows:

    Basically, the Concentrée version is the regular version with the top notes almost entirely muted and most of the middle notes toned way down (especially the sweet, boozy note on get in the regular version) with a heavier concentration on the basenotes. It's a little more musky--due to the ambrette seed note being more concentrated--and much woodier and drier with a super concentrated sandalwood note.

    But Concentree version is not listed on the Chanel page. Is it possible to buy Concentrre version somwhere in Europe? Do shops f.e. in France sell it?

    By the way, yesterday I bought the new bottle of Egosite Edt...I have finished my old bottle.
    I've found Egoiste when I took interest in perfumes - about 11 years ago. I was so deeply impressed with this scent. It is still on of my best ever scents.
    Not for every day, not for the day. For winter, for darkness, beeing with bohemian people, listening to Piazzolla or watching the film by D. Lynch

    The Concentree is not longer producted by Chanel. Egoiste only come in EDT which to me is just as strong and lasting.

    Problem in the states is not many place stock Egoiste original actally the only store I know of is Bloomingdales.
