    Default Re: Chanel Allure vs Platinum Egoiste vs Antaeus vs Pour Monsieur

    hmm.. i have pour monsieur concentree, egoiste, plat egoiste and antaeus. actually i find all of them very lasting. i wonder if it is just me, but the new antaeus gives me a headache... some synthetic stuff in there just does not agree with me...

    but they are all like my children - different in their own ways but still lovable nonetheless... if u need to just choose one, would go for egoiste if u like perfumes that smells a bit sweet. anteaus is smoky and spicy (ok if it does not give u a headache). vintage PE is stunning (the reformulated one smells mainly lemony to me). and i have a very weak spot for my PM concentree. It was in Austria 1997, i sprayed some PM concentree on my sleeve, forgot about it and went to watch a concert. Throughout the concert, i was sent to olfactory ecstasy by the PMC wafting at me. I went to grab a bottle the very next day!!

    in order of preference...

    1. Pour Monsieur (can be short lived - I find a heavy dose under clothing helps a lot)
    2. Antaeus - Powerhouse!!
    3. Allure
    4. Platinum Egoiste

    If you included Egoiste, that would be joint no.1 with PM. Plus it lasts...
    LOST! in scent and music

    I think EGOISTE and POUR MONSIEUR smell alike. The sillage is much better on EGOISTE. POUR MONSIEUR seems like a better version of BOUCHERON JAIPUR. I am confused about ANTAEUS.

    Get EGOISTE. It comes in 3.4 for $75 and PM is like 2.5 for $65. I will exchange the PM with Egoiste. PE is good too. Man if you have money get them all. period. Get them from Nordstrom and wear them few days each. Once you the winner out, return the rest.

    I have all of them, but the version of my Chanel Pour Monsieur is Concentree.

    My Personal Ranking:

    Longevity: CPMC or Antaeus > Allure > PE
    Sillage: Antaeus > CPMC > Allure > PE
    Scent: Antaeus > CPMC > Allure > PE
    Wearability: Allure or PE > CPMC > Antaeus

    I think Allure and PE are more wearable/safer around people as both have this casual vibe. Antaeus is strong, and CPMC tends to give the wearer a mature aura. PE is just too weak on skin.

    From the list, I'll repurchase them all except the PE.
    Currently wearing: Terre d'Hermès by Hermès

    Kouros gets a hole in one while Antaeus slices into the woods. YSL does this sort of thing much better, I can't help but feel that Antaeus is Chanel's most overrated masculine. PE is just chemical dreck.

    Go with Allure, it lasts all day and people always compliment me on it because they can smell it from a couple feet away.

    As this thread has flickered fitfully for over two years, I guess it's OK to chime in at this late date; the material interests me.

    I've used three of the four (not Allure) and of those three the biggest success has been Antaeus. Pour Monsieur on me was pleasant if weak and short-lived; Platinum, as others have noted, had a sort of generic-90's feel, clean but artificial, a bargain at half the price.

    I like Antaeus because it succeeds where something like Azzaro fails, balancing borderline-nasty animalic notes against sweetness and wood. I found those juxtapositions in Azzaro to be disquieting and bizarre, whereas in Antaeus they work together to create the proverbial whole that is greater than the parts.

    Luca Turin has described Antaeus as the first gay fragrance, a characterization that has rather puzzled me. Does he mean that it was the first "emblematically" gay fragrance, or that there was some essentially gay quality to the notes, or more simply that it was popular with gay people? Given that about half of the key signifiers of gay culture in the early eighties (to take a tiny sample, think Madonna, Boy George, New Romantic, perms for men, stud belts, harness boots, day-glo, "club drugs," shortwaisted double-breasted jackets, and men's eyeliner) had become core elements of mainstream pop culture by 1986, none of these explanations would seem to defuse the basic silliness of the observation.
