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

I can live w/o Fahrenheit and TdH, but can't w/o 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.

Really tough. Have and like all, but of the three - Egoiste.
Tough one. I can rule out Fahrenheit, but it's too tough to choose between Egoiste and Terre.
Your 3 picks all get lots of love here as you well know...might want to flip a coin.
Been taking my first break from it in almost 24 years. But, for me, Fahrenheit wins this race in a walk.
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
Sample them out. I'd say TdH
For me it's a coin toss between Egoiste and Fahrenheit.
Classy, mature, sophisticated? Egoiste.
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.

2. Lalique Encre Noire
3. Creed Aventus
TOP 3 cold weather:
1. L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme
2. Chanel Coromandel
3. Dior Homme
Three of my favorite fragrances. You really can't go wrong with any, imo, but gun to head, I gotta go with Égoïste. There's a reason I wear it more than most.
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.
Fahrenheit by Christian Dior
Egoiste - perfect in cooler climes. The classic.
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.
This is really a tough one, but if I forced to choose:
I love all three, though.
TdH, but an honorable mention to the great Fahrenheit.

Fahrenheit is the winner
Debste of the century right hrre. I put my chips on fahrenheit
I have yet to give Terre d'Hermes a wearing. It was a tough choice between Egoiste and Fahrenheit. I chose Egoiste.
Fahrenheit. As innovative a game-changer in its day as Eau Sauvage was in its.
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?
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.
E, followed by F with T far behind for me.
All good choices. If you are looking to make one your signature scent I wouldn't hesitate to go through a 5ML sample of each one.
You can't go wrong with any of them.
T. by far, E. on a good second place and F. not even close(to the original!)
Chanel - Egoiste.
You seriously need all 3 !

Now with 418 bottles in my collection
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
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.
My sales thread
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.
To each his own,
Live and let live,
This is fun. We need more polls!
We're all in the same game; just different levels. Dealing with the same hell; just different devils.
Easy choice - Farenheit for me. I dislike Egoiste and loathe Terre d'Hermes. They both smell dull, uninteresting and forgettable to me.

Don't like Egoiste at all. TDH is average for me. Fahrenheit is great.
A close competition between Egoiste and TDH- both befitting the top spot, Fahrenheit being also qualified for a venerable second place
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.
All three are amazing
Chanel's Egoiste. European sophistication at its highest. A true masterpiece which every gentleman should own and wear.
All three are obviously very well liked. I voted for Fahrenheit.
