    Between those, definitely Platinum Egoiste; quite a masculine scent, good projection and longevity, needs 5-6 sprays though. Bleu is okay, but there are much better citrus frags out there; If you like pure lemon you will dig Edition Blanche, but I'd suggest the Allure Homme Sport. Creamy, versatile, compliments. The longevity/projection isn't spectacular but okay for a fresh scent.

    I believe Nordstrom is the only major department store in the U.S. that carries it. Online, you can buy it directly from Chanel's website and also on beautyencounter.

    To be honest, I really enjoy the opening of L'homme by YSL, but projection and longevity is a problem with that one. I enjoy Bleu a lot and i also enjoy gucci sport by gucci because of the opening. Are there any scents similar to these three?

    I like Antaeus and Egoiste. But beware, you started with a list of superfresh scents, and these two are not.

    I've seen Egoiste (non platinum) also at Bloomingdales. And probably also at other perfume only stores.

    Platinum Egoiste - masculine, floral, woody, sharp and dry
    Bleu De Chanel - mainstream, fresh, woody, can smell cheap on drydown
    Edition Blanche - lemon, lemon, lemon + sweet Chanel base that smells synthetic to me

    Bleu has better longevity and sillage than Platinum Egoiste on me. I dont own Edition Blanche.

    I COULD LIVE WITHOUT ANY OF THEM. Most unique is PE, but you may like or hate it.

    From the Chanel Men's line, I can only recommend Antaeus, Chanel pour Monsieur and Egoiste (not Platinum Egoiste).

    This is like going to a 5-star restaurant and ordering ramen - you should give any of the other masculines from this house a try before you spring for a full bottle, in my opinion.

    Egoiste. I personally found Bleu boring and generic.

    I agree with the above but I admit that Allure Homme Sport is my 'guilty pleasure' - the only 'sport' fragrance I kinda like and wear occasionally.

    I'd be remiss if I neglected to mention that a large % of the Exclusifs line and several from the "feminine" line are unisex in reality. I've seen Sycomore presented with the masculines in Chanel boutiques. Cuir de Russie, Bois des Iles, Coromandel, 31 Rue Cambon, 28 La Pausa, and No.18 are all unisex. From the 'standard' feminine line No.19 is unisex while No.5 Eau Premiere and Cristalle EdT is barely on the feminine side of unisex.

    All of the above are superior the three perfumes in the OP - in fact those three are pretty much the bottom of the Chanel barrel.

    Of these, I kind of like Platinum Egoiste, but there are several herbal/aromatic fougeres I would buy before it, and a couple by the same perfumers in different styles. If those are simply the Chanels you have easy access to, I'd recommend ordering a broader selection of samples online before committing to a purchase.

    OPs trio doesnt sound good for basenoters but I am pretty sure that this 3 + Allure/Allure Sport are only Chanels that majority of non basenoters would wear.

    I just checked his posting history and this is going to be his first purchase... so common guys... Egoiste or Antaues as first bottle? Maybe 1 year later.

    I agree, though PM concentree isn't bad either. Platinum Egoiste and all the Allures pale in comparison to Chanel's older offerings.
