    Default Chanel Egoiste or Guerlain Heritage

    They don't smell similar (at least not to me), but these two classics seem to occupy a similar place in my rotation. Which of these two classics do you prefer and why? I have enjoyed Egoiste for longer, but lately am enjoying Heritage more. I think the only reason is because Heritage is a newer fragrance to me, but they are both fantastic.

    Lately I've enjoyed vintage Heritage more than Egoiste CC, mainly because ECC is a bit unbalanced relative to Heritage (drydown).

    Egoiste in any formulation, vintage or currrent beats Heritage for me & I'm a huge Guerlain fan...

    Love and own both but prefer Egoiste.

    Egoiste is the one for when you want to be noticed, generally-speaking. I prefer the dynamism of vintage Heritage, at least over the last year or so.

    Both are in my top 10, Egoiste being as close to my signature scent as any scent I own. Love Heritage as well but will go with Egoiste.

    +1..... The vintage is so much better than the current, not that the current is bad just lower quality compared to the glorious vintage.

    Heritage has an early 50's vibe, Egoiste a mid-40's vibe. So Egoiste wins by almost a decade.

    Two different ones IMHO. I can't choose one, sorry.

    Well... this hotel uses Heritage as a room deodorizer.

    Heritage, it's an interesting composition of notes being played out at different volumes

  23. #23

    Default Re: Chanel Egoiste or Guerlain Heritage

    Either of the two is great in my opinion, voted for Egoiste simply due to having become that familiar with Heritage that the scent notes of Egoiste and their development, in spite of having tested them before, still have uncharted, complex and not always predictable subtleties to my nose.

    Although Heritage is quite a piece of work, soft, velvety, aristocracy like fragrance, I have to give my vote to Egoiste.
