    eternity for sure....often when im in the mood for one, i could easily put on the other and it wouldn't be such a huge deal. Funny how I've come back to Eternity after all these years.

    Fierce is close especially in the overall vibe. It's like a building in the same architectural style. Not identical and I believe it does not have the same longevity.

    Glad to know someone else thinks it (Egoiste Platinum) was reformulated. I thought I was losing my nose.

    How did you find out about the reformulation? When do you think it happened?

    They aren't very close at all, not by a mile, not by 10 light years.

    I should've done a search here before I bought a new bottle of PE. I had thrown one away last year that was a gift because I thought it had gone "off". Now I have a brand new bottle with a production date of Feb. 2010 that smells just like the one I threw away, and it seems that there is nothing wrong with it - it's just that the formula has been messed with. What a shame - why do they have to screw around with success?

    If you like the way PE used to smell up until the last year or two, keep your eyes peeled for those black metal travel spray atomizers from the pre-reformulated days...

    One of the Parfums de Nicolai fragrances is near identical to PE, I think it's Balledin or Balle de Match, I can't remember which one. Last time I was in their store in Kensington I tried both and one of them was Platinum Egoiste's long lost twin.

    Herrera for Men, IMO, is a ringer for PE

    In my opinion I see no resemblance at all to A&F Fierce, Curve or MPG Garrigue. Although, Garrigue is probably the closest.

    I think the closest thing to PE is Penhaligon's Opus.

    About ten years ago, there was a perception amongst many members that Platinum Egoiste and the original Boss Elements were almost identical.

    While they both hit my nostrils in the same peculiar fashion, I preferred Boss Elements.
