They're two entirely different scents, there's nothing to compare but the name.
Which do you prefer?

PE, without a doubt. Wearing it right now.

I prefer Egoiste Concentree

I prefer and really got to like egoiste. Using the egoiste concentree though.
PE is good but I say Egoiste is far better,
There's something about the dominant spice note in Egoiste - nutmegish - that doesn't mesh with me.
Thus, Platinum gets my vote.
I love the original. Rosewood, spices and a lovely oriental base. IMO, the Platinum version has nothing to do with the original; it's way too mainstream.

I'm a colognosaurus. Rawr!
They're two totally different beasts.
I'd take Egoiste.
I voted for Platinum Egoiste.
Current Top 5
1. Creed Aventus
2. A*Men Pure Malt
3. L'instant Extreme
4. Nasomatto Duro
5. CDG - Kyoto
My vote is for Egoiste.
I love Jasmine.
They both get sour and sweaty on me.
I don't understand why people like this so much...
Because when I smell it on other people, it also smells sweaty.
212 Men by Caroline Herrera does the same thing to me.
Egoiste is the better / more interesting scent... Platinum Egoiste is more versatile though...
Platinum Egoiste for me.. The other is too stuffy

I got both, but Egoiste would be my choice, if I only can choose one. Chanel is a great house!
Égoïste, by far.
As far as I'm concerned, however, Jacques Polge could piss in a bottle, and I'd probably wear it. Well, not quite, but you get the idea...
Looking for: Vento Canale, da Gianni Campagna.
I agree with stereotomy .
Did you use the search functions frafra ?

Platinum Egoiste by far! It is my main scent I wear and the amount of compliments I get is just unreal.
Egoiste smells like Christmas in Candyland or something, it's a heavy scent that reminds me of gingerbread cookies.
Although both are nice scents to me, Egoiste is the clear winner.
I`ve got both but if i had to choose one it would be Egoiste.
Only tried PE so far, and that was only off a paper strip. I wasn't blown away, but I rarely am when smelling something that isn't on me.
I wear both, but Platinum Egoiste is my preferred fragrance by a country mile. As someone else said, it's more versatile - and woman always remark on it when I wear it, which they have never done when I've worn Egoiste.
In a world where people smell bad, it is the personal responsibility of every Basenoter to improve the world one SotD at a time...
Except for the sweetness and the name, there's nothing in common between the two - as many others have pointed before me.
PE is more versatile, I agree, but the original is so much more interesting. I owned PE for a while but I got bored with it and swapped it away - instead I got myself a bottle of Egoiste, which I think is a keeper.
PE because I draw the line at smelling like flowers.
Egoiste is the scent for me......absolutely adore it. Platinum is totally different to the original. I think Chanel should remove Egoiste Platinum from the bottle and market it as Platinum. The two scents are not similar at all.
