    Hate it. The original Egoiste though have become one of my favourites.

    Loved PE. I was just killing time at Shoppers Drug Mart a little while back and came across PE. I didn't really think to much of it at first, just dismissed it for an out of date 90's fragrance. I sprayed it on my arm, and sure enough, loved it. It is really fresh and invigorating. I think this may be vying for a spot in my final collection.

    Lets bump 1 more old thread.

    I bought Platinum Egoiste last week and I changed my mind over it (I wrote here negative comment half year ago).

    Closest thing to PE that I smelled is Joop Nightflight (that I dismissed first as "too old" smelling but I love it now...) but PE doesnt have anything sweet in it and is not that cloying at top notes as Nightflight.

    To me it screams class and masculinity without smelling dated. You can smell that this one cost lot of $ (compared to other designers)

    I tried EP in 1998, back when my only serious frags were Egoiste, Cool Water, Le Male and XS. I love the original Egoiste, been using it since 1997, but the EP does absolutely nothing for me. Not back then, not now. Big skip imo.

    Hehe, it must be true that most people that like Egoiste hate Egoiste Platinum and vice versa.
    I like Egoiste Platinum but Egoiste is one of vilest things I ever smelled. Maybe it is classic but it is too much for me.

    In all honesty EP should've never been named Egoiste, not because it's bad, it's just a completely different scent that has absolutely nothing in common with the original.

    Makes me salivate, maybe cause i love, or maybe for the chemicals in that

    Same with eternity

    Slightly too overly spicy for my taste, but still a good scent, though I am unsure whether I am ever going to wear this regularly

    Funny that this came up because I tested this last Friday. I had never tried it before, so I sprayed some on a card but got a little on my fingers in the process. It smelled so nice on my fingers throughout the day that I went to another store on Monday and sprayed it properly on my arm. This time, it didn't smell so nice, and it was so strong that I felt a bit self-conscious as I was walking about. It reminded me somewhat of Eternity, which I think got there first. There definitely are similarities to me. I guess if one were to apply as little as possible, it would be OK, but I am glad that I went back to test it on myself because now I know that I won't be getting it.

    And my quest for a Chanel fragrance that I actually like continues.

    My thoughts exactly. Had they just given PE its own name, there may have been less outrage over it...

    Like it. A camphor-fresh synthetic masculine, like a much brighter FIERCE. Liked the LOUD older formula better than the lighter newer formula.

    Haha. This happened to me few hours after I bought bottle of PE. I was like. WTF? Why I wasted 53 Euros for this? I should buy Bleu instead and put PE it immediately on sale. Later I tried it again with just one spray on neck and it was just right amount to not be cloying and be enjoyable.
    Less is more with PE, that is sure and that 1 spray on neck lasts 12 hours on me.

    I like it. For me, it smells like some scented papers or erasers.
    Woody/floral/metallic/ and a spicy note makes you think it's dry.

    I hate the sutff. This is one I sprayed poor DH with over the weekend - it's horrible . Definitely headache inducing - like a big scent wall to bang my head into .

    I love Platinum Egoiste (my favorite Chanel that I've tried so far). I think it's much fresher and I like it much more than Allure Homme Edition Blanche or Allure Homme Sport. (although, I do love the cologne edition of AH Sport).

    Never smelled the Egoiste, but Platinum is terrible; smells like a really bad, really cheap clubbing frag for wanna-be playaz.

    It's very similar to these two and it also shares similarities with Fierce. But I think it outdoes all of them. Platinum Egoiste is perhaps my most liked designer scent that i don't own a bottle of.

    Currently my favorite scent. Classy but not in a gentlemanly way, more like "I am powerful and will crush your throat if you get in my way".

    I loved it as a newbie, a few tries after and a lot of more interesting fragrances tested, i dislike it, for me it's a chemical mess.

    Great classy, versatile fragrance. Good for all seasons and pretty much all situations. For that alone, it deserves props IMO. Something I'll own for as long as they make it.
