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.

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'm gonna memorize your name.. and then i'm gonna throw my head away!!........:bounce:.............
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.
Egoiste hands down
Discover my Guest Reviewer Of The Day here
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.
I find Egoiste beautiful and PE vile.
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
Platinum Egoiste, Schmatinum Egoiste.
OG Egoiste all day.
