    Default i wore Egoiste today and a lady chased me down at the mall

    i wore Egoiste today and a lady chased me down at the mall to ask me what i was wearing... the look on her face was all blushing when she asked me.... she told me that she need to know the cologne, because it smelled soo good. Just imagined if i would have wore the concentree version instead of the edt version today? What would she say or do?

    Thats a wonderful ego boost and something you usually see in commercials and not real life. Good old Egoiste!

    Oh not me. I'd love to smell Egosite on other guys. Here in Miami all I smell are sh*tty fragrances on most men, usually over applied.

    The other day while out and about I heard a horribly loud rushing sound behind me, followed by a deafening crash. I turned around only to see the flaming wreckage of a 747. After a few tense seconds that seemed an eternity, the emergency door to the cockpit slowly swung open and a soot-covered female pilot tumbled out of the smoldering pile of twisted aluminum. I rushed to catch her, and lowered her gently to the ground.

    "Are you okay?" I asked, my concern apparent in my eyes

    She responded, after a brief fit of coughing subsided, "I'll live."

    "What happened?"

    "I was flying at thirty thousand feet when I noticed a scent, and I simply had to chase you down and ask... what cologne are you wearing?"

    "AVENTUS."

    I don't get why people are so focused on compliments. Sorry to be cynical, but this is a numbers game. Out of 100 random girls, 10 will hate it, 20 will be ok with it, 50 will like it, 15 will love it, and 5 will even give you a compliment. Or some other distribution of the kind. I can't see how getting a random compliment is of any relevance. What's relevant, really, is that the 20 who love it are the important ones and that the 10 who hate it are the unimportant ones.

    Way to go! It's actually very rare to get a compliment from someone for the scent your wearing, so, to have a lady chase you down is GREAT!

    I think you are missing the point badly.

    The point is that if out of 100 random girls, 10 will hate it, 20 will be ok with it, 50 will like it, 15 will love it, and 5 will even give you a compliment - then 70 will have liked it.

    That's a lot better result than zero compliments, where for all one knows, 99 out of 100 may think it as just OK or nothing special.

    Do you really not like compliments? Random ones are worth sooooo much more than normal ones because that stranger has had to be so very brave to tell you.

    Great that you got complimented on the one and only, Chanel …goÔste! It is a fragrance of divine class and quality, and very worthy of compliments Aaah, if just half of those 1000's of 20-sprayers in Denmark would change their 1 Million to …goÔste, I might actually think I had died and gone to Heaven!

    Also very common in the US.

    From the 16th century "to eat one's own heart" (to suffer in silence from anguish or grief), possibly from the Bible "to eat one's own flesh" (to be lazy) The phrase "to eat one's heart out" appears as a formulaic phrase in the Iliad, meaning to experience extreme grief. (For instance, Iliad.24.128.)

    It is highly unusual for a stranger to compliment you on a fragrance here in Spain. It has never happened to me, nor to anyone I know of. I think people are much more open with these kind of things in the USA.

    I love Egoiste and I also bagged a FB of the cologne concentree earlier this year. It is simply one of the greatest fragrances I've ever had the pleasure to wear. It never gets me compliments though.

    Yeah I was wondering the same. I'm assuming Egoiste. I smelled platinum for the first time yesterday at Nordstrom and I was kind of underwhelmed. Not nearly as complex as I expected. Kind of simple and sweet with no deeper tones of musk, tobacco, sandalwood or anything else that I typically I like
