    I don't know. But on me the dry down of Platinum Egoiste smells EXACTLY like Curve for men (the original). Anybody spots the similarity?

    Very little. I would never buy it. (I say this even though Chanel is my favorite house.)

    I feel that Herrera for Men does it a lot better then Platinum Egoiste.

    Not to me. My father had Curve for a long time, a long time and so did my brother. Never does it smell like PE to my nose. Different league, imo.

    I wouldn't buy it at half the price.

    Smells like Abercrombie+Fitch done with better materials. Not in a negative way, but I still hate it.

    my thoughts on Platinum Egoiste . . .

    1. people, calm the f down - yeah it's nothing like Egoiste at all, but it was released in the early 90's, you've almost had 20 years to get over your frustrations - and it's obvious Platinum is a gem all its own. i feel like there isn't as much hate there between Gucci Ph and it PH2 brother, and it's only been maybe 3-4 years for them.

    2. i don't know what it is, but Platinum Egoiste, even though i smelled its 'brothers' like Herrera, Eternity - Egoiste has still managed to kill the both of them with its longevity and sophistication - ok, the sophistication is totally due to Chanel's marketing/distribution practices probably, but i was at an Ulta today smelling Herrera and Eternity on sample strips and its almost like those houses have completely relegated them to dust collecting standbys that hold the foundation of there fragrance family. i imagine when they first came out, they weren't as weak/synthetic smelling as they are now. that being said, every bottle of PE that i have bought has the incredible/loud strength every Chanel men's frag has had pre-2004.

    3. PE can still be relevant and classy nowadays - just limit yourself to 2 sprays on bare skin under a shirt and you'll be fine - seriously all you need. more than that then you become "that cologne guy"

    4. PE does get old. i had a bottle from '04 to '07 that definitely was all the synthetic PE top notes once we approached '07. i bought a recent bottle in '09 and the stuff is just lush, really, compared to my old bottle. that being said, when you buy a fresh bottle, this stuff is so full bodied and noisy (again why i say only wear 2 sprays on bare skin under a shirt). sometimes 1 spray is enough . . . keep in mind this is a guy that sprays like 5 sprays of Christian Lacroix Tumulte everywhere (which for me has been one of the quietest frags i've worn).

    don't buy into the hate on PE too much. its a great anytime, anywhere scent (of course that def is qualified by the amount you put on) but i have never ever had a bad response this gem. its def a basenotes 'all purpose classic'

    Sorry to say...though Chanel is the superior here.....Egoiste proves vitiated by the will of the Strong Beeswax absolute and jets of florals...

    Being an original Ëgoïste addict,
    I very much dislike this one.
    Too manly ... too butch!

    But then again, I'm not at all
    into fresh frags.
    Well, besides Dior's Dune PH.

    I truly enjoy wearing this to the office.

    PE is one of those frags that sometimes I love, and sometimes I hate. I can't really explain why though.

    It's obviously very high quality. But despite testing it numerous times, I just never could warm to it.
    Other similar style scents of the time, like Eternity, I like much more.

    It`s sophisticated indeed, but there is that metallic-note in there that almost make me sick..

    It is nice to wear once and awhile, but not an everyday fragrance.

    Smells refined, confident, and somewhat young at the same time.

    True, I initially thought that PE smelled mediocre, but over time I came to like it.
    There is nothing wrong with smelling like gilette shaving cream all day.

    I keep trying to like it, but every time I sample it I end up scrubbing it off after about an hour. Just not my thing.

    I don't fall into the Egoiste vs PE camp, I like both. PE is a great, long lasting fragrance and better than their latest creation.

    If I could only have one fragrance, that would be it. Very versatile, very classy type scent.

    There's a brand of men's cosmetics called Nickel. Platinum Egoiste smells exactly like the the fragrance in these products. If you love Platinum then I would suggest you seek these out. I'm not sure if Chanel do a full bath line for Platinum but I think Nickel might be a little less expensive though not by much.

    Personally, I'd go for the original Egoiste every time.

    I love it. One of my favourites, for sure. It just oozes class and masculinity without being too brash. I'll always have it in my collection.

    Love it. As others have said it is pure class. Can be worn with a suit, at a romantic setting or casually. Great stuff.
