    Default Your thoughts on Egoiste Platinum

    it seems it's one of those colognes that either you love or hate. i had a friend in which Egoiste Platinum smelled great but i bought it once but i didnt think it was anything special on me, maybe skin chemistry or something. Well what do you think about it?

    I think it's a lovely fragrance -- lasts forever on me. I keep meaning to buy a bottle, but never seem to get around to it. In any case, this frag gets "dissed" a lot here on Basenotes. Why? I'm really not sure.

    All that said, though, the name choice was HIGHLY inappropriate, as this one has about as much in common with Egoiste as Body Kouros has in common with Kouros.

    Some days I love it and some days I hate it. It has a different drydown on me depending on the weather.

    I didn't like it. It has a metallic, '80's component to me in the drydown that makes it uncomfortable for me to wear. To me, this is what David Hasselhoff was wearing being Knight Rider and driving KITT.

    I do have a 99% full mini that I would like to swap for some other mini, though.

    A bit too metallic for me, but in all, a great fragrance.
    Lately I've been wearing:
    Windsor, Bois de Santal, Original Santal, Elixir, Douro, Endymion, Reflection, Arcus, Marwah

    It is my favorite, no other cologne I wear fetches the attention PE does. Women just love how it smells on me, in fact my boss's wife smelled it on me and went ga-ga over it. My boss now wears it too.

    I'm still undecided. It obviously has great sillage and longevity, but something about it makes me feel its a bit contrived and a bit superficial. However, I will agree with the compliments, but I wonder if it is more just a function of its sillage.

    I can't stand it. It's such a strong metallic smell. I gave it a good 6 hours on my skin before washing it off and I still didn't like it much better then the minute I sprayed it on my wrist. That one spray was so strong when I sprayed it too...

    Platinum got me the best compliment I ever got from someone at a party... I like it a lot. I agree on the different drydowns depending on the weather too. Summer time seems to work the best for me with this frag.

    Good, but IMO pales against the original.

    Love it, used up two bottles through the years, and working (slowly) on a third. The wonderful drydown is worth the harsh opening.

    PE is without a doubt a great fragrance but nevertheless it lacks something, a certain "je-ne-sais-quoi", that the original Egoiste has.

    Its one of my staples... I simply won't be without it!

    It's a great fourgère that has some semi-oriental qualities to it, smells nothing like the original, but they are so different that it's not fair to compare the two.
    I love it and wear it frequently, but it's a sillage monster on me so a few sprays are all it takes to be ok for a day.

    Interesting.
    I was out shopping yesterday and I tried some PE on a card, some sprayed on my hand by accident. Later, at TJMaxx, I took a spray of Eau de Grey Flannel on my other hand. I thought it odd that they seemed similar and I thought it was just my sensory overload. I later read the reviews for EdGF which decribes a "metallic note"and now this thread describes PE having a metallic note.

    Thumbs up Re: Your thoughts on Egoiste Platinum

    It's definitely an attention getter with the lady's, but as others have noted it really has nothing in common with the original. I would definitely recommend it as a staple for your collection and I prefer it over the original but I'm in the minority on that recommendation.

    It smells like Himalaya stripped off most of its energizing cool accord, mixed with a slightly bitter note of sorts. It shares 75% of its DNA with Himalay and XS pour homme for sure.

    It smells good. I don't understand all the "OMG!! Itz SmeLLz CrAPPy and SynTHEITCZ !!" comments lashed onto this one.

    My farther and my mother think that it is one of the best scents for men
    I think it's great, it's still modern. It will be modern for decades. One of the best scent ,,ordinary" men could like.
    Some 10 years ago I had two bottles. I do not use it anymore. It's my past...
    It's wonderful in spring. Early spring mornings and Egoiste Platinum....
