    Default Chanel Egoiste vs Terre d'Hermes vs Dior Fahrenheit

    I know these are not very related, but I want to get one of these scents as I feel like I need to add a mature, classy, masterpiece to my collection.

    Which one of these do you think wins? As far as the total package: sexy, sophisticated, classy, etc.

    Thanks in advance for your valuable opinions

    Intense decision between TdH and Fahrenheit, but I like both better than Egoiste.

    Terre d'Hermes & Dior Fahrenheit are great, but Chanel Egoiste is the timeless classic masterpiece.

    Judging from your preference on heavy sweet scent like Le Male, I think you will really enjoy Chanel Egoiste, it is also the classiest of the three.

    Tough pick between Chanel Egoiste and Dior Fahrenheit. They both blend florals and woods in ways that are so loudly floral, but still soundly masculine. I consider them both modern classics, and the strongest of their era alongside GIT and Cool Water. I'd give Egoiste the edge in Winter/fall. Fahrenheit the edge in Spring/summer.

    My personal vote would have to be for Fahrenheit, but I can't argue against the other two They're all great in their own way, but liking one does not necessarily equate to liking any of the others. You should definitely try all three and form your own opinion on which one you prefer as you're going to find strong supporters for each of the 3 on here

    Fahrenheit without thinking twice. There is nothing else like Fahrenheit! It is sexy and mature (but easy worn by anyone 20+). Not exactly classy in the sense of Dior Homme or L'Instant Guerlain but masterpiece.

    TDH never really did much for me and I've always found Fahrenheit completely repulsive. Egoiste ticks all the right boxes, has no downsides, and easily gets my vote.

    All of them are great. I don`t find Terre d`Hermes Sophisticated. It`s more a casual daytime scent. Both Egoiste and Fahrenheit are classy and sexy, but Egoiste is to heavy for summer. Lately Fahrenheit has become one of my top-favorits, so I woted Fahrenheit.

    Could Fahrenheit really be perceived as "sophisticated" and "classy" though? So many times reading/watching reviews, I hear that this is a good work fragrance for someone who works in construction, and that this is the fragrance for "dirty" guys. I happen to be pretty clean cut, and like my original post said, im looking for some sophistication too. Does Fahrenheit contend still with this in mind?

    You'll have to try it and decide for yourself, with this particular fragrance if you were to poll 10 different people on this site you would get 10 different impressions and thoughts on it. I think moreso than most fragrances, people will draw different things from Fahrenheit depending on their own experiences and preferences, but yes I think some people would describe it as "sophisticated" and "classy" although perhaps not nearly as often as the other two in the poll. The two words I would probably use to describe it or "edgy" and "unique" and I think those qualities are what makes it sophisticated because many people will smell it and just not get it

    Admittedly, with its dark and somewhat complex opening, with its petro-grungy facets melding with lush greenness, it could prove challenging. However, the overall scent is, perhaps, one of the best, green scents. The nuances from the opening, middle and base were and are the epitome of a ground-breaking scent, and, to me, defines sexy, classy and sophisticated.
    Wearing Fahrenheit would not, in any way, sully your clear-cut image, but rather taint it with an an avant-garde facet, and, at most, decidedly push the envelope in that regard.

    which egoiste is it that everyone is reffering to? is it the vintage formulation or either one? is it the edt or concentree? ive never smelled any of these, and was under the impression that there was a difference in the varous versions. so i was just wondering

  44. #44

    Default Re: Chanel Egoiste vs Terre d'Hermes vs Dior Fahrenheit

    Dior Fahrenheit is my choice out of those. Terre I used to hate, now it's tolerable though still a bit too mature. Egoiste I still haven't come around to, and it smell even more mature and old fashioned.

    Egoiste.

    Fahrenheit? I waver between shrugging or wondering if the " Check Engine " sign just lit up on my dashboard.
    TdH is another shrug, esp compared to other Hermes scents. Perhaps the IsO Molecule whatchamacallit that's supposed to act as a pheromone and has 50%+concentration accounts for the love? I don't know.

    I think this was very well-said and I completely agree with it. Personally, I would take;

    Fahrenheit > TdH and Egoiste
    Current Top 5:
    1. Frederic Malle L'eau d'Hiver
    2. Tom Ford Noir de Noir
    3. Dior Homme / Dior Homme Intense
    4. Thierry Mugler A*Men Pure Havane / Pure Malt
    5. Creed Aventus / Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille

    I'm wearing TdH now. It gets better at drydown than it was at opening. It is a good fresh spicy scent, but I think I prefer Silver Mountain Water, if we are talking about similar scents.


    IMO, TdH is all around good, but not for me personally. It just seems like a scent better suited for older people.
