    When it comes to fairly basic "modern" fougeres, I'd just reach for Lomani. Solid and super cheap.

    Just curious, is this actually close to PE? I own Lomani and think that it is okay, although I haven't spent any real time with it. I've never smelled PE.

    Not sure which Lomani he is actually talking about since there are more than ten on the men's side. IMO Lomani Volcano smells pretty close and as are all Lomani fragrances, inexpensive.

    I've read that Live Jazz by Yves Saint Laurent is very close but I've never tried it myself.
    She gets a special cologne. It's called Sex Panther by Odeon. Yep, it's made with bits of real panther so you know it's good.

    Ah.... thanks. I'll have to look into that one. The one I have is the original Lomani pour homme and seems like an acirid lavender.

    Lomani smells nothing alike IMO. I think A&F Fierce, Cool Water and Joop! Nightflight are all 'similar,' but I haven't found anything 'really close.'

    I see that they have an auction for 4 ml minis of Platinum Egoiste on ebay for less than 6 dollars each. I grabbed myself a bottle.

    Funny you ask me when I got two of them.
    Real close deals with Egoiste Platinum that I found in my collection are very rare scents:
    Messer Jacopo by Torrini (Florentian jewellery)
    Succes fou for men by Marcella Wouters (Belgium)
    Vetiver The Great!!!

    I have also heard A&F Fierce although I haven't compared it myself. I did not find YSL Live Jazz to be similar, personally.

    To me, Curve for Men smells almost identical to the drydown of PE.

    It's a matter of sensitivity, and there is no way to know where the OP stands. If he is a "newbie" and hasn't smelled many frags, Lomani (the original, 1987 I think) might smell better to him than PE. If he is responding to a particular note in PE that is weak or absent in Lomani, then he would find it lacking. If he wants a bunch of slightly different fougeres and has limited money to spend, Lomani is a very good option. If the OP could be more specific, then those who respond can be too.

    Lomani goes for a grassy vetiver eventually, though within a fougere context, for those who don't know From what I remember, PE is richer and nicely balanced, and probably more "natural" as well, though Lomani doesn't have a "synthetic" feel.

    I found some similarities with Carthusia Uomo and Platinum Egoiste. I tested Carthusia Uomo some time ago and its drydown reminded clearly Platinum Egoiste, at least for my nose.
    Please check out my selling list:

    YSL Opium homme EDP, Rive Gauche pour homme, Villoresi Uomo, Dior Homme vintage, Body Kouros, Guerlain homme intense etc.

    I just tested my mini of Platinum Egoiste. I thought it was similar to Calvin Klein Eternity myself. I look at the note pyramid and see some similar notes as well (geranium, lavender).

    I definitely agree with jenson re Paco XS and BradW re Eternity.
    Ergo... it also smells like Himalaya, but with much greater presence and longevity.
    Someone mentioned Cool Water and Nightflight. Can't see that at all, I'm afraid.

    To my nose Live Jazz en Platinum Egoiste smell nothing alike. I think it's pretty hard to come up with something that is similar to Platinum Egoiste,,,but than again one PE is more than enough.

    The one that is closest to me is:

    Gianfranco Ferre For Man

    But be careful, Platinum has been reformulated. Old bottles will smell better.

    I agree with the CK Eternity for men comparison, and I also found YSL L'Homme to be similar too.

    I am still quite new to this. I am not sure if I am right. But try Kenzo Pour Homme. For me they have the same vibe.

    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.
    In a world where people smell bad, it is the personal responsibility of every Basenoter to improve the world one SotD at a time...

    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.
