Egoiste was withdrawn from the UK in early 1995, a mere five years after its introduction in September 1990. This coincided with the Platinum launch in the same year. I'd like to know where that SA got her information. I've never seen it available in any department store in the UK.
Cartier Santos Concentree is another well-loved favourite that disappeared towards the end of the 90's. Still, all is not lost, one can still purchase any number of celebrity scents and they stock all the usual mundane stuff that's been released in the last ten years or so.
