    Default Chanel Egoiste vs Platinum

    I wore Egoiste Platinum in the past but never Egoiste. Today I sprayed the second in my hand, great longevity! 9 hours and still kicking.

    I am thinking to buy again Egoiste P. because that is the one of the two that I like better.

    I would like to know your opinion on both and why you prefer one over the other. They are two different juices, at first the difference seems to be sublet but the dry down separates them apart.
    Thanks

    Pecksniff's Woody Oriental is a cheaper version of Egoiste.

    I had opportunity to sample Oriental Woody. It was different than what I expected, but good nonetheless.

    I haven't tried Platinum, but I sure liked Egoiste.

    I prefer Egoiste, which to me is beautifully complex with a lot of space in it. Like an openly woven intricate tapestry.
    Platinum is nice, but I experience this more as a watery blend, and a little bit boring. (wait, did I say that out loud?)

Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."

    The longevity of Egoiste is insane. Wears much like an EDP.

    I didn't even dare to try Platinum because the smell from the scent strip was so off-putting to me--bad blend of aquatic and herbal notes, at least to my nose.

    Egoiste is a VERY strong oiental scent wheras Platinum is as safe and light, a little floral in a good way though.

    The only similarity I find in the two scents is that they both carry the name "Egoiste" and both are made by Chanel. I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be possible to like both.

    I voted for Egoiste.

    I used Platinum exclusively a few years ago, and only today tried on a sample of Egoiste (thanks, SirSlarty!!).

    Yum!

    Yup, Egoiste wins my vote.

    Both are excellent scents, but to me it's like comparing apples and oranges -- they're just completely different: Platinum is my spring/summer scent: it's refreshing (lavender!) even on the hottest of summer days, but yet substantial enough to last for hours and hours, unlike many summer of those citrusy/marine summer scents that just dissipate after half an hour. And Egoiste is spicy and warm -- but very strong, too strong for office situations, so beware. It is an excellent winter scent, esp. for the holiday season.
    I've received many, many compliments for both, from both men and women, though it's been a while since I've worn Egoiste.

    I love Egoiste - but Platinum, not so much. And I wanted to like Platinum.

    I use Egoiste often, but usually to work.. But could this work as a clubbing-scent as well?
    Is it a hit among the ladies? I have concider to use it on the night-club, but have ended up using Burberry Touh as usual.. Maby i should give my Egoiste a try next time at the night-club..

    I really enjoy the spicy complexity of Egoiste.
    Are you not entertained??? Is this not why you are here??

    I'm not that fond of either... Platinum is too fresh for me, while Egoiste is too spicy.

    If you had a gun to my head though, I'd take Egoiste.

    Egoiste is the better of the two for me. The spices I get off of it are what makes it stand out.

    I have owned both, though at different times.

    PE isn't altogether bad, but rather generic. I got bored with it after a while and traded it away. But Egoiste, on the other hand, is a keeper.

    I think about Egoiste before I wear it. Look forward to it. Concentree is something I'll put on once in a while when I can't decide what to wear but can't bear to wear nothing. It's OK, but the original, I couldn't be without it.
