    They're two entirely different scents, there's nothing to compare but the name.
    Wanted: a cap of Bvlgari Thé Vert

    Wanted: L' Artisan Timbuktu or Fragonard Concerto

    Granted, but most people buy one or the other, being dissimilar is beside the point IMHO.

    PE, without a doubt. Wearing it right now.

    There's something about the dominant spice note in Egoiste - nutmegish - that doesn't mesh with me.

    Thus, Platinum gets my vote.

    No, that's exactly the point. They are so different, that besides the name, there's no reason not do have both. Simply because they are different.

    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.

    My feelings exactly!

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    Default Re: Poll: Egoiste vs. Platinum Egoiste , which do you prefer

    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.

    Egoiste hands down

    Egoiste

    The Fact that both perfumes share "Egoiste"on their name, does not mean at all, that they will smell alike.
    This is like comparing Caviar and Chocolate.
    Egoiste is a Fantastic Fragrance and Rumor has it, that its mother was the Chanel's Iconic Classic Bois des Îsles
    Egoiste Platinum is a Fougére - What does that mean? Fougére - The class of fragrances have the basic accord with a top-note of lavender and base-notes of oakmoss and coumarin.

    By far Egoiste over PE, any day. Platinum Egoiste is ok, but just ok (too much like furniture polish for my liking)... Egoiste is simply wonderful!!
    LOST! in scent and music
